REVIEW - Crossing the Line (World Apart #1) by Nicola Marsh


Laying it all on the line for love…

Mia Cresswell is tired of being good.
Achieving geek status at college doesn’t equate with fun. So when she heads home to her dad’s tennis academy in Santa Monica on spring break, she’s determined to be bad. And hot Aussie tennis star Kye Sheldon is just the guy to help her do it.

However, Kye’s troubled past continues to dog him and attending the Cresswell Tennis Academy is his last chance at the big time. He can’t afford to screw up…by screwing the boss’s daughter.
But Mia and Kye’s relationship is much more than a vacation fling.
Will it be game, set, match, when the truth is revealed?
Or will Mia and Kye have a real shot at love all?


I received this book for a honest review, so thank you!:)

I wanted to read something easy and short, funny and romantic, and with a bit of serious things in it. I know, I know, this book doesn't seems to be serious from the synopsis, but it has kind of a shade of seriousness, even is not so accentuated.

I won't talk about what's in the book because the synopsis is giving away enough, and too much in my opinion, and this makes the book pretty predictable. But if you read it without peeking an eye to the synopsis, maybe you'll enjoy it more. I did it like that.

What I think that saved this books are the characters. Because if there was no Kye or Mia, then this book would've been just a cliche romance novel, a summer read that you forget after reading the last sentence. But this two characters, even they don't have such a deep description and evolution, were good, funny, ironic, sweet, impulsive and hurt. Yeah, I know it's nothing new but for a short book like this and with a ton of novels like this, with no difference between them than names, this novel was good. Good enough to make me smile sometimes and feel good.

So, if you're looking for a good book for summer, but not too long or complicated, and not too deep or dark, somewhere in between, then try this. Is fast, funny, short, romantic, a little bit of drama, friendship, family and all that stuff. I think you'll enjoy it as much as i did. Or less. Or more.
