Crossing the Line by Evelyn Jules

Crossing the Line

By Evelyn Jules

Book Blurb:

Madison Kelly is an erotic romance author from Canada on her way to her first writing conference ever. Across the border. A trunk full of dirty books and dildos proves enough to amp up her nerves and make her lips flap faster than the maple leaf flag.

But she’s not going anywhere until George Petropoulos gives the go-ahead.

The Greek god of a border guard has something other than national security in mind when he detains this particular citizen. He can’t help but be charmed by the juxtaposition between her stammering blushes and the racy books she writes.

A hot and heavy interrogation brings out her inner sex goddess, one that she’s been hiding in the pages of her books, and leaves them both wanting more. But will they be brave enough to cross the line again?

What a dream for a romance book reader to experience! You know how so many time readers will ask their favourite authors questions like, "What was your inspiration?" or other questions like, "What gave you the idea for the story?" Well folks, for Crossing the Line I was there! Right there that precise moment when Evelyn Jules had her mind spinning on how to turn a brief moment in time and roll it out in to a short steamy story. It was a beautiful thing to witness. 

A few years ago, two readers and two authors decided to carpool from Canada to the US to attend a popular book convention. As we crossed the border, we all swooned because our crossing guard was hot. There is just something so attractive about a man with a commanding presence, wearing an uniform and oozing intimidation. Oh yeah, he was totally good looking to top it off. Right then as he questioned our drestination and other security questions, the story Crossing the Line started to form in Evenlyn Jules' dirty smutty mind. This sexy story was the ultimate result. 

Crossing the Line is very sexy and is quite possibly one of those many fantasies that women have when they see those smoldering, serious border crossing officers. I wasn't sure how Evelyn Jules was going to get the protagonists from the crossing line to crossing THE line but it was done is perfect manner and you could almost envision it. (oh come on, let the fantasy ride ladies!)

I loved it. I loved how the story came to be. I love how it was orchestrated. I loved how the author was still able to offer an air of innocence to the erotic protagonists and I loved the completely affordable price of .99 for an amazing memorable hot read. I am not sure if I will ever see a border crossing officer in the same light again.

I loved this story as well. It had the perfect blend of humor, awkwardness, and heat. It was definitely a fun read.
