Book Two in the Series Cops and Docs

Author: KD Williamson

Nora Whitmore has been through the ringer both professionally and personally. Now, her life is more than she ever thought it could be, especially with Kelli McCabe in it. The walls have come down, and she is open to new people and experiences.
Kelli McCabe watched all the broken pieces of her life come together. The situation with her family settled down, and she’s right where she wants to be back at work and in Nora’s arms.
For both of them, this quiet time is just the devastating calm before the massive storm hits and brings with it the violence of a vengeful enemy and the reality of drug abuse. The chaos surrounding them exposes old wounds and individual vulnerabilities that seem to multiply when they are together. Is it too much for them to withstand? Or is what they have strong enough to overcome it all?

    I just finished reading the ARC of Crossing Lines, and all I want to do is turn to the next page and find the next chapter. K.D Williamson is an amazing writer. Her style of writing doesn’t just draw your attention, it makes you apart of the story. I found myself feeling everything that Nora and Kelli felt, especially at the end of chapter ten (relieif). This author creates relatable characters and puts them in real situations that are completely believeable. For once, in a law enforcementstory, I found myself not wanting to smack the officer over their head because Kelli never creates dangerous situations even if her words can sometimes get her in trouble. I loved that fact that the author didn’t just gloss over Nora and Kelli’s issues from the last book, instead she gave her characters a chance to strengthen both their relationship and themselves while still maintaining the humour and intrigue from the first book. Now I’m just hoping that there will be a third book in this series so that I can see where Nora and Kelli go next in their relationship. (Thank you for the amazing use of grammar and punctuation , it does wonders for the story)

    I received this book as an ARC and was asked to provide an honest review.
    I was looking forward to reading this book after I finished and loved the first one….and it did not disappoint! The characters are terrific and just continue to grow and evolve. The writing is stellar and kept me wanting to read more and more. I look forward to future works by this author.

    This book is wonderful, beautiful. At the same time sweet and psychologically rich and intense.

    The story begins immediately after Blurred Lines ending and I’d say the two books are actually only one novel without any gap between them. Blurred Lines ended with no hangover in a pretty relaxed point of Kelli and Nora’s love story, but the general feeling was that their relationship was still imperfect and in an initial phase. Crossing Lines continues the love story tale, expanding it, making it deeper and more charming. Blurred Lines was the bud, Crossing Lines is the open flower.
    Things that in the first part seemed just side happenings, now gain importance.

    The core, the central theme of the book are the two main characters, Kelli and Nora. They are so well defined and special. They are both very human, each one in her own way, they have their vulnerabilities. Kelli in particular appears to be frailer, in this second book, but that just made her dearer to me.
    It’s a book about personal growth, about finding the courage and the strength in the fundamental aspects of life.

    Their mutual feelings are so powerful… the story is an emotional roller coaster and the reader is really captivated. Everything is delightfully romantic.

    It’s a commonplace in romance that when all seems to be all right, something happens between the two lovers, leading to a sorrowful separation, to be solved later, often just near the end of the story.
    Many times I have been perplexed with this sort of happenings. I understand they are necessary to keep the emotional tension in the reader, however often they are often unrealistic about what happens between the two protagonists.
    On the contrary, in this book the separation is really interesting and original, both in its context and in the time of the story when it happens.
    Ok, maybe the separation after their argument is a bit too much protracted to be true, considering the sincere loving feelings always present between them, but then the heart of the novel is the rebuilding of their relationship on a steadier, better foundation.
    The crisis becomes the very instrument for their personal growth, as individuals even before than as a couple. I really liked how intensely that was described.

    Sometimes romances are just superficial. Heart beats for the two leads and that’s all. And yes, from this point of view, Crossing Lines is indeed really enjoyable and entertaining. But while reading, I also found deeper psychological aspects which make it a quality book, in my opinion.

    As I already said about Blurred Lines, again this is not a mistery book, a thriller or an adventure one. The plot is simple, there are not twists nor heroic acts, unless we consider as heroism the dedication to the beloved one in difficult times.
    Everything is just in relation to the love story. What happens is not important in itself, but as how the two main characters transform their lives accordingly.

    I thank the author and the publisher for the ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

    In Crossing Lines the 2nd book in this series we meet up again with Kelli and Nora and pick up where we left off. They are still in the early stages of their relationship and things seem to be going well as they settle into life together as a couple. Then life happens, misunderstandings happen and they have to work through these circumstances and remember why life is so much better together than apart. I really enjoyed this book and when you read the next book in a series it has to be even better than the first one in my experience to grab the readers and make them pay attention and this one hit the mark! I enjoyed seeing Nora continue to grow and learn to trust others along with Kelli learning to lean on others and the author threw some humor in there to boot. I highly recommend this book and hope that there is a book 3 or even a novella to see how these characters continue to grow and develop but mostly to see where life takes them (hint hint). I look forward to seeing what KD has in store for us next since she has a knack for writing great books and I think she can only get better as she gets some published books under her belt.

    I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Well I absolutely loved Blurred lines and when I found out Crossing Lines was coming out a few months after I was thrilled. I can hardly wait until the end of the year when book 3 is released! Every now and again you find a book that pulls you in hook line and sinker and this book like its predecessor are those books. I can’t explain it but there is something about Kelli and Nora that just grab and hold onto you through out the books. They are both characters you can understand and relate to their individual issues and challenges of overcoming them. I really enjoyed their individual growth and the evolution and challenges with their relationship in Crossing Lines. The supporting characters are also fun, Susan and the girls as well as mom. I hope the series continues past book three, perhaps introducing other cops, doctors , DA and nurses with these two as part of the story line.

    The Story Continues
    Crossing Lines brings back Kelli and Nora from Blurred Lines. This is a continuation of the story and if you read this first, you are missing out on a lot.
    Just when all seems well with our heroes, the other shoe drops and it falls hard! Kelli’s brother Anthony is up t his usual tricks and Nora’s blackmailers aren’t quite finished with her yet. Someone has revenge of their mind and has targeted the good Dr. Add in painful breakup and you have yourself quite the mess. Can Kelli save Nora, does Nora really need saving and can Nora help Kelli deal with her family or is it all too late? These questions and more can be found between the pages of this book.

    Technically sound, this good read features Kelli and Nora as well as the others. The book led me on a merry-go-round of emotions. I was mad and sad, happy and relieved. This time the rolls seem to have been reversed.

    Kelli’s life has begun to spiral out of control. I could almost feel her frustrations and ire. It seems like she could do nothing right and every time she turned around she was more and more alone. She is so strong to have faced all she did and how she dealt with it.

    While Nora has a lot to work on, she has come a long way. I enjoyed seeing her come out of her shell and not go back to the lonely, closed off woman she had been.

    So much happened in the story but I don’t want to give away any more. Do yourself a favour and give the story a go.

    :

    Crossing Lines by KD Williamson is the second book in her Cops and Docs series. You might be able to read it without first reading Blurred Lines, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

    Kelli is still just as loud and brash and Nora is just as brilliant and standoffish as we saw in Blurred Lines, except that they’ve each changed enough to have space for the other in their lives. The character growth is my favourite part of Crossing Lines. Who they are at the end is drastically different from who they are at the beginning, but in a way that is entirely appropriate for Nora and Kelli and makes me believe in their happily ever after all the more.
