Book Review ~ Crossing the Line by Nicola Marsh

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 had a very hard time putting this book down once I started it.  From the beginning, the writing captured by attention and I was hooked.  Ms. Marsh does an amazing job with the characters and the plot.  I have never read anything by this author before, but after reading Crossing the Line, I will definitely be reading more written by her.  The story flowed so smoothly and the two main characters are very likable.  I loved Mia with her witty one liners and Kye, quite simply, is the most awesome guy EVER.  I'm a sucker for Australian guys anyway, but to have one that is sexy, hot and absolutely adorable?  Perfect, just perfect!  I loved how they 'clicked' together so perfectly.  Crossing the Line was really fun to read and I look forward to the next book in the series.  

My rating:  4 out of 5 stars
