Review : Crossing The Line by Audra North


***ARC Provided by the Author for an Honest Review***

‘Crossing the Line’ by Audra North is a book based on the sport of Car Racing. A subject I am not really interested in as I don’t see the point of racing around in circles at ridiculous speeds. In saying that, it is a very popular sport and mine is just one opinion.

Cori Bellows is a reporter, a sports reporter to be more specific, who is given an opportunity to shine. A chance to be more than just the office assistant, at Gold Cup Sports, she is sent to two race meets to report on Ty Riggs, an up and coming Racer from Riggs Racing.

After her boss receives a tip off that this team could be embroiled in scandal, he sends her in to find him a story, doing, as he puts it ‘whatever it takes’ to secure it.

As the story progresses Cori makes a name for herself based on her terrific reports about the world of racing on her actual reporting skills, not the incriminating evidence she has received as she got closer to Ty himself.  The closer she gets to Ty, the more she finds herself falling for him, thus making it harder to complete her boss’ wishes.

Ty Riggs is a determined man, who is out to prove to the world that the cheating accusation thrown at him is falsely unjustified. After he gets into a fight, defending himself, he vows to stay out of trouble, concentrating only on beating his competitors on the track.

When he meets Cori at a racing meet, it is an instant attraction. She was unlike anyone he had ever met before and she made him strive to be a better person. An admission from his father, throws his life into turmoil and he battles an internal struggle between knowing what he needs to do, and what is expected of him.

Believing he has found someone he can trust in Cori, he opens up and admits his father’s secret.

I will be honest and say that I found the storyline to be very predictable, and awfully quick. It seemed that just as I was getting into the story, it finished. In the end it becomes a great quick read and you find yourself rooting for them both, hoping for a happy ending.

If you are a racing fanatic, then this is the story for you. It is really well written and the whole storyline has been extremely well thought out.
For me this is a four star read.
