The Fragile Line: Part One
Love is the one emotion they just can’t shake off.
Part One of a Three-Part Story.
Chloe McCarthy has one rule when it comes to sex: one night, no strings. But for Logan Tanner, she made an exception.
When he breaks off their ongoing friends-with-benefits arrangement for someone else, reality hits her hard. She’s all alone and plummeting toward rock bottom. Until she runs into the one guy who can always make her smile. Matt Langston–mechanic by day, bouncer by night, ripped-and-tattooed-hot 24/7.
Matt would know that pink-tipped platinum-blonde hair anywhere. It’s Chloe, doing a half-naked walk of shame. He knows she’s no saint. Then again, neither is he–but he’s no douchebag either. Her slumped shoulders and tear-stained cheeks ignite his protective instincts even as his better sense warns him she’s a threat to his no-drama lifestyle.
As their friendship deepens, however, mutual desire reaches the boiling point. Chloe’s body hungers for Matt as a lover–but the last thing she wants is to ruin the best thing that’s ever happened to her with the best sex of her life…
*The Fragile Line is a spin-off to The Fine Line, told in an addicting three-part romance novella series, with each part building on the last. Parts One, Two, and Three must be read in order. Reading The Fine Line first is not necessary, but will provide a further introduction to the characters which may enhance the overall reading experience.
The Fragile Line: Part Two Blurb
The only way to have her heart’s desire is to risk losing it all.
Part Two of a Three-Part Story
Chloe wants more than anything to FML–follow Matt’s lead. It feels right to be with him, even with his family. But in the past, every time she’s given her trust, it has torn a chunk out of her heart.
Things are moving too fast, but she feels powerless to put on the emotional brakes. She senses Matt is holding something back. Something that could spell the end of what they have.
Matt is ready to take the next step in his life. One dream calls to him with a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity. The other–Chloe–sears his soul with eyes that tell him she’s not ready to follow.
Long ago, he gave forever love a chance and got burned in the most humiliating way imaginable. This time, the only thing he can offer is one night they can both look back on. And hope that one day, the warmth of that memory will draw her back into his arms
The Fragile Line: Part Three Blurb
When the last spark of hope fizzles, love can light the way home.
Part Three of a Three-Part Story
In her heart, Chloe knows she’s done the right thing to let Matt go. Her old life of clubbing, drinking, and hookups is over, but she isn’t finished growing into the person she wants to be, much less a woman who’s worthy of Matt’s love.
She’s not exactly moving on, but she’s moving forward. Until she catches a glimpse of Matt on TV as one of the cast of the American Muscle reality show.And that’s not all. He’s holding hands with his co-star, Dalton Davis’s beautiful daughter, Ava.
When Chloe walked away from Matt, he made a decision: he’d wait for her as long as it took. Meanwhile, he doesn’t see any harm pretending to be with Ava just to appease her father–at first. But he can’t pretend, not even for the cameras. Trouble is, Chloe has only seen half the story–the half that’s a lie.
It may take a tragedy to bring her close enough to tell her–and show her–the whole truth.
Warning: This romance is appropriate for age 18+ only.
Reviews of Parts 1,2,3 by Ashley C.
Fragile Line part 1 by Alicia Kobishop
This is part 1 of a 3 part series novella that is a spinoff from Fine line. I would highly recommend that you read Fine Line to understand this story. This is the story of Chloe, who in my opinion when I started this, I was not a fan of her. I had some residual hate from Fine line, but this story changed my opinion on her.
There is a lot of her girl hiding under the pink hair, and it’s Matt that helps bring that broken and hurt girl to the surface. Matt and Chloe start to steam up the pages, but things can change quickly as Matt finds out, when he is offered the chance of a lifetime… then he starts to question, what is more important…. We have to read Fragile Line part 2 to find out.
Fragile Line part 2 by Alicia Kobishop
This novella starts off right where the 1st one leaves us. Matt has been offered the chance of a lifetime, to work for American Muscle…. The question is what is more important to him, Chloe and this dream job.
This was a good quick read, and a good continuation of Matt and Chloe . I enjoyed this read, I loved the Christmas scene at Matt’s family and I loved the flashbacks so that we can understand how their past shaped how they are today. It will be interesting to see how their story ends in book 3.
Fragile Line Part 3 by Alicia Kobishop
This was a great ending to this novella series. For me, I had trouble with Chloe from the beginning because of the situation that was laid out in a Fine Line. There was a lot of growth for Chloe from book one to know. I loved how they finally were able to admit their emotions to each other and fix the damaged parts.
I will say this book was the perfect ending for them. I enjoyed how things were tied up and the fact that Chloe righted some of her wrongs. I will say I wish it was one book total between the three, but overall I was very happy with this series.
