The world’s best-stocked toy drawer can only take a gal so far. Bored with her current assortment of vibrating, plastic pieces, Sam Wallace decides to add a new sex toy to her collection: Kevin Mazze. The sexy Italian is more than happy to help her live out her long-held sexual fantasies, and trusting him with her body is easy. Trusting him with her heart, however, is not… especially when he commits an unforgiveable sin.
Kevin Mazze is one of the good guys. He’s spent his life always doing the right things and making those around him happy. When he meets the woman of his dreams, at the worst possible time, he finds himself making bad choices in the name of good and crossing lines he never thought he would… while praying she never finds out.
CROSSING LINES is book 3 in the Heat Wave Series, It can be read as a stand alone.
Sam is a divorced mom that has been hurt or abandoned by everyone she knows she satisfies her carnal needs with a drawer full of toys supplied by her best friend who is an in home demonstrator, Kevin has no plans to fall in love in fact the woman he is involved with is driving him crazy so the last thing he needs is another relationship.
I did not like Kevin in the beginning of this book, he is said to be "too nice" or "one of the good guys" but I thought he came across as a spineless jerk as far as dealing with the woman he was supposed to be involved with, I did grow to love him especially because of the way he deals with his nephew and Sam's daughter.
Sam I felt bad for she had been dumped on by life and was doing it on her own (in more ways than one) When she starts getting involved with Kevin things move pretty quickly.
Over all this book is good alone but better as part of the series, as a stand alone I liked it but it lacked the depth of story you get from reading the whole series. We had some sudo-BDSM play and lots of toys as well as some melt your panties hot sexual tension. I loved the interesting way that Kevin came up with to fulfill one of Sam's fantasies, as well as the tenderness he shows for her while taking care of her when she is hurt.
