I did enjoy the reading Crossing The Line. While it was a good read at times it got a bit choppy and I didn't know where I was.
Jamie has it all -- he owns a ritzy car repair shop, his own home on the beach. But he's lonely. His last lover, Ben, has moved on and Jamie's been carrying a torch for him.
When a business meeting puts him in Le Grande Louisienne at Ryan's table, he is immediately drawn to the waiter and leaves his name and number, but Ryan doesn't call, so Jamie has to make other plans, finally convincing Ryan to meet with him.
Ryan's last partner died, and while it's been a long time, he's still hesitant to start a relationship with anyone else. Jamie almost gives up, but then Ryan agrees to a date, and to tell Jamie about his ex-lover, Mark. After being burned that bad, Ryan is very skittish, and Jamie can't really blame him. With all of that out in the open, their relationship can start to progress.
It's not always easy. Between Jamie's ex showing back up, and Ryan's old lover's family, there's always something keeping them on their toes. Can Jamie get what he needs from Ryan? Find out in this sequel to Jumping the Fence!
