What would you do to be free?
Trapped in a home full of rage and violence, Jonah King has had to fight for every scrap of good that life has ever tossed his way. But will it ever be enough?
Sometimes, the lines are blurred between good and evil, love and hate, and when Jonah meets Autumn Garrett, he finds that he’s not the only one fighting for salvation. Can love this raw be real? More importantly, will they survive to find out?
Gritty and emotional, Blurred Lines is a gut-wrenching, heartrending roller coaster ride through the ups and downs, twists and turns of life, showing us that the most brilliant beauty can be found in the darkest reaches of despair. More than Romeo and Juliet retold, this is no fairy tale. This is survival at the most basic level—the heart.
***Reader Warning*** This book touches on serious issues, meant for mature readers. My characters may be seventeen going on eighteen, but they deal with things far past their years. There are major themes of abuse, as well as some foul language and sexual content. Please read at your own discretion.
Also, Blurred Lines can stand alone, but to avoid any big spoilers, I’d highly recommend reading Lines in the Sand and Two Blue Lines first. Happy Reading!
I leaned in slowly and let my eyes fall shut. I breathed in the sweet scent of him and the ocean as his lips touched mine gently. He kissed me like I was a precious thing and tears threatened.
Drawing back, he ran his fingers through my hair and cupped the back of my head. “I think I like you a little too much.”
“How can you like someone too much?”
“When they have the power to break your heart.”
I met his dark eyes, saw the things he kept hidden. “You’ve had your heart broken.” I didn’t ask, I could see it.
“Not by a girl.”
He let me go and sat back. “Everyone else.”
I didn’t know what to say to that so I didn’t say anything. How could he not see we were the same? Scared and alone in this world, never fitting in. Until now. Until each other.
SC is married with three children—one son in the Air Force and two teenage daughters—who give her plenty of inspiration and advice, and are a constant source of laughter and new terminology. Besides writing, she loves reading, movies, singing and dancing reality shows and going to the beach.
