Juliette Jauntie is only scared of one thing—living. She’s made some mistakes in her past–reckless, impulsive mistakes–but she fought back and now she’s a caffeine-fuelled workaholic who’ll stop at nothing to succeed. She can handle anything Johnny Danger, her biggest competition, throws her way. Crushing workload: check. Insane deadline: no problem.
Johnny’s sensual allure: big problem.
And Working Late…
Former Ranger, Johnny is ruthlessly devoted to Danger Enterprises, the company he’s built from the ground up, his personal triumph over a brutal start in life. So when Juliette Jauntie blows into his world, with her amped-up energy and furrowed brow and red-painted toenails, and starts asking questions that piss off a lot of wealthy people and threaten the empire he’s built, Johnny knows he needs to stay focused.
Pin her down, get some answers, and walk away.
…Has Never Been So Sexy
But when their sexy showdown blows the lid off an scorching passion, and uncovers a shocking crime that’s been hiding in plain sight, the trouble mounts and the stakes skyrocket, and Johnny knows he’s in big trouble.
Because with Juliette in the mix, he might lose more than his business. He might lose his heart.
Outside the lines is the first story that I’ve read by the talented Bella Love and I really enjoyed many aspects of this story. I received the 3rd POV version and honestly I was a little skeptical initially, because sometimes this POV doesn’t work for me. However, the dialogue worked out great and it was quite enjoyable to get both POV’s of Johnny and Juliette throughout the book.
First, I think the character development was simply amazing! I can totally see this story happening in real-life between two hard working accountants. Juliette and Johnny are both drown to one other almost immediately. I can’t go without saying; the sex scenes filled throughout this story are extremely HOT! Johnny is the true definition of an alpha male. The twist toward the end of the book was something that I was not expecting to read. I always love it when an author can completely throw me off track! This one did that for me.
I have to say that books revolving around lawyers and/or accountants are not my typical type of read but this story had enough going on to keep me engaged the entire time. I think sometimes, writers with a strong background in law can overuse their work terminology with their writing. This can sometimes be a little distracting for me personally but Ms. Love shares just enough to keep you involved with the case they are questioning without overdoing the law jargon.
Overall, if you love to read romantic mysteries filled with smoking hot sex and emotional tension then, Outside The Lines is the perfect book for you!
I give Outside The Lines, 4 CASE WORTHY STARS!
