Ten years after surviving something no child should ever have to endure, Hallie Anderson is finally ready to stop hiding in the shadows. She has a job she loves, friends who care about her, and a fresh start in an apartment of her own. She can finally put the horrors of the past behind her. Or so she thinks.
When the past merges with the present, Hallie is soon feeling like the scared and vulnerable thirteen-year-old of ten years ago. Wanting desperately to hold onto her new life, she’s reluctant to accept any offer of help. As events take a dramatic turn, she quickly realizes if she wants to stay alive she has no choice. What she doesn’t expect is the help to come in the form of Sawyer Mitchell, a Close Protection Officer who looks like he should be starring in a Hollywood movie rather than watching her every move.
For Sawyer, the assignment to protect Hallie is like any other assignment he’s taken on. He’ll do what he needs to do and then walk away. He never gets close to a client, it makes protecting them all the harder if he does. All that changes when he meets Hallie. He’s inexplicably drawn to her, knowing instantly she isn’t like anyone else he’s protected.
Can Sawyer protect Hallie and keep his feelings for her under control, or will he cross a line, putting both of them in danger?
3 Heart Review by Ashley
After reading the blurb for Crossing the Line I knew I wanted to make it my first read from Laura Farr. The opening had me completely riveted and eager to see what would become of Hallie.
I really liked this girl. She had endured so much. Survived. And was learning to live again on her own terms. Until her past came roaring back into her life and left her in a world of memories and danger. Enter Sawyer, the man whose mission it is to keep her safe. Who never expected to fall for his innocent and brave charge. Who put it all on the line to keep her safe.
I really liked how patient and accommodating Sawyer was with Hallie. Especially after he learned all that she had suffered. He treated her with respect and didn't push but let her open up to him in her own way and in her own time. And it was wonderful to see Hallie's confidence grow even with so much uncertainty hanging in the air.
I will say that with the way things seemed to wrap up early-ish on, I knew that something else had to be coming. And I was right, I just had no idea what Laura Farr had lying in wait. My heart was racing as those tense moments played out. From start to finish Crossing the Line was emotionally intense. Sawyer and Hallie's journey, while something neither expected, was sweet, pure and exactly what they both needed to see all the possibilities that love can bring.

I hit a patch of ice.
The car skids and spins out of control.
This is it.
I knew it.
This is how it all ends. I’ll slide into a ditch where no one will find my body until this winter wonderland thaws.
When the car slams against something, I hold on to the wheel and scream until the airbags blow, pushing me back into the seat. My lungs contract with such force I’m afraid they might fold into themselves. The car has spun so many times that, when the door opens, I'm disoriented.
"Are you okay?" someone asks smoothly, the baritone of his voice reverberating through my bones. The low rumble is comforting, and I could listen to it all day.
When I look up, I understand why his silky words felt like a warm hug. I’m in heaven, and St. Peter is the most gorgeous angel I’ve ever come across. Not that I met any while I was among the living.

For four years now, he has appeared and just as quickly disappeared from my life. No one can say that I don’t have my life together. I know exactly where my life is going and I don’t need some wishy-washy man slowing me down. Even if he has the most knee-weakening deep brown eyes or a voice that sends shivers down my spine every time he speaks. Oh and did I mention he’s going to be a doctor?
I was raised to be a good man, respect my elders, respect women, work hard, study even harder. It’s how I’ve lived my life so far. Up until the fateful basketball game when she bounced on to the court with her short skirt and pom-poms. Suddenly all I can think about is being bad, very bad. I have all of the moves too, well on the basketball court anyway. Because when it comes to the cheerleader of my fantasies, Dia Price, I’m a complete disaster. I can’t seem to stop messing everything up when I’m with her, I just hope I can fix it before it’s too late.

Last Kiss Under the Mistletoe
“I’m Chef Davies,” he introduces himself. His voice is just as warm as his smile, and deep enough to send chills down my spine. “And I hear you need some help picking a main course.”
I stare dumbly at him for another few moments before collecting myself. I resist the urge to slide my hand into his. As much as I want to touch him, experience has taught me that what I might See will make me even more awkward than I already am naturally.
“I’m CJ Roberts,” I reply, blushing down at his hand. “And I’m sorry, but I’m afraid I don’t shake hands.” I’m so used to saying the words without remorse, but this time is different, and I’m worried about offending him.
“It’s nice to meet you CJ Roberts who doesn’t shake hands,” he replies, withdrawing his hand and sinking into the chair to my left. I look up to see him leaning in and smiling winningly, and if it’s possible to blush harder, I do. “Is it okay to ask what CJ stands for?”
His proximity makes my cheeks burn hotter by the second. “Catherine Jane,” I murmur, looking up into his eyes.
“Catherine Jane,” he replies slowly, as if tasting the words.
“Chef Davies,” I reply teasingly, folding my hands in my lap.
He laughs, deep and booming. “Okay, I guess you can call me Drew. Short for Andrew.” He grins, and I notice a dimple on his left cheek. “Now. Salmon versus halibut?”
I take a deep breath and nod, refocusing. It’s not easy. Being this close to him, trying to have a normal conversation, takes everything I’ve got. It would help if I weren’t so gawky to begin with, but here we are.
He gestures to the bread. “Have a bite. Then try the salmon again.”
I do as he asks. I go to lift the fork to my mouth, and he reaches to stop me. Instinctively, I pull back and look at him, wide-eyed.
“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you,” he says huskily, with a sexy smile that makes me melt under his stare. “Just … I was going to tell you to close your eyes.” Then he clears his throat, as if suddenly aware of the intimacy that’s bubbled between us.
I breathe through my nose, close my eyes, and take a bite. The subtle flavor sings under the lime dressing. I can’t help the groan that slips out of my mouth. My eyes fly open self-consciously to find Drew staring at me with an inscrutable expression.
I swallow hard. “Sorry,” I say. “It’s just so good.”
A smile tugs at his lips. “Thank you,” he replies. His eyes flick down to the bread, then back up to me. “Now, bread, then halibut. Eyes closed.”
Something about his quiet command makes me blush again, but I comply. The firm, slightly sweet fish has a mushroom sauce that complements it nicely. But I realize it doesn’t have the heartiness and the punch of the salmon. This time when I open my eyes, I know exactly what I want.
“Salmon. Hands down.” My eyes meet his. “You’re good.”
He gives a shrug. “I’ve done this a time or three,” he replies nonchalantly. Coming from anyone else it would sound arrogant. But he’s got a humility that is ridiculously endearing.
“What would you have chosen?” I ask curiously.
His answering grin is so gorgeous it practically makes me dizzy. “Life’s too short for absolutes. Salmon for lunch, halibut for dinner, I say.”
“Well, if I could cook like you, I’d probably say the same,” I admit. “Or, if I could cook at all.”
He leans forward on the table. “Well nobody’s perfect,” he replies. Our eyes meet for a moment, and I let myself stare back. The small space between us practically crackles with energy.

“Kiss me.” I heard myself whisper.
Rolf responded in a low growl, crushing his lips to me and doing as I asked. Then he turned us as we stood, with his back to the sofa and walked us over. Sitting and taking me with him, he straddled me over his lap, pulling my dress further up to my hips. I moaned when I felt his fingers brush my skin, and my body jumped with a happiness it had never once known. But still ... our kiss ... I wanted that kiss from our wedding.
“Kiss me,” I said again, only this time more demanding, as I plunged my tongue back into my husband’s spicy mouth.
“Gianna ...” The sound of my name rough in his voice, Rolf chuckled as he pulled away and broke our kiss.
Whimpering, I opened my eyes and found his brown eyes heavy with lust and humour and for a minute, I was lost. Why was he stopping? Why was he laughing?
A hand tucking my hair behind my ear, Rolf eyes searched my own before he spoke. “Tell me what you want, and I’ll give it to you.” Lust lingering in his voice.
I frowned. “I told you. Kiss me.” I leaned forward to kiss him.
Rolf shook his head, and he situated us so that I could feel him under me as I sat on him. “What are you hoping to get from our kiss?”
Sighing with frustration, I asked. “Can’t you complete a simple task as kissing me and shut up?” I moved to get up but was held down by my hips.
His eyes focused on my half-naked breasts; he cleared his throat. “If I give you the kiss you were just eating my face off for, will it allow me passage into our bed?”
His eyes raised to mine, and I half laughed, as I started to panic on the inside. Had I been that obvious that I was searching for the one kiss? That one kiss that made me feel ... special? “Don’t flatter yourself, Rolf. You just happened to have caught me in a most uncompromising position.”
“And what position is that?” He half-whispered as his fingers played with the ends of my waist-length hair.
“You look like Christoff.” I hissed out in a disgusted tone. “Any kiss I wanted was because of the memories of him.”
His eyes dropping to my stomach, Rolf held onto me tightly, and pushed me off his lap to stand on my legs. Once he was sure enough that I had my footing, his hand dropped from my waist, and he sat back on the sofa, adjusting the front of his jeans.
Standing there for a few moments, looking down at him, I asked foolishly. “That’s it? Nothing to say or threaten me with?”
“No.” Digging into his pocket, Rolf pulled out a single cigarette and lighter and poked the cigarette between his lips.
Frowning again, I grabbed the cigarette from his lips and took a step back before Rolf could grab hold of me.
“Give it back Gianna.” he said in a warning tone.
“Why not?” I repeated as I ignored his hand gesture to return his cigarette.
“Princess, if you want to keep telling me how I’m not Christoff so that you have a reason to keep your distance from me so be it. But that kiss you want so much tells you I’m Rolf and I’m the one you hunger for.” He motioned again for the cigarette. “Sooner or later you’ll be back for that kiss and more since I already told you my plan. And when you come for it, I’ll make damn sure that it’s my name you cry and beg for.”
His face grew dark. “Not just because I intend to fuck you, so you know it, but because Gianna I am going to make love to you. I am going to love every curve of that tempting body of yours, and I am going to brand my name into your skin and down to your very bones. That way, when you’re alone, and you close those beautiful dark eyes, you won’t even remember my brother. No, Princess, you’ll only know me, you’ll only want me. What I told you before I said to piss you off, but now I’m mad, and I’m sick of hearing you say Christoff’s name. I am not him, and when you come for that damn kiss, you’ll see I am Rolf J. Meikle. Your hated bastard, the only one you will only ever want.”
