Blog Tour #giveaway #review: Crossing the Line by Jacquelyn Ayres

Book: Crossing The Line 
The GEG Series #3
standalone read
Author: Jacquelyn Ayres
Genre: erotic romance/humor

Psychotherapist, Madelyn St. Claire, has all the answers. At least, that’s what the plaques on her wall say. There isn’t a fear she’s met that she hasn’t helped a client blast through. So, why can’t she work through her own?
Oh, that’s right…
She’s been so busy helping everyone else through their challenges over the years, including her best friends—the GEGs—that she never even realized she had any of her own true fears. Then again, she didn’t have a reason to until he came along. Cellist, Declan Pierce, can hit all the right notes, as long as he’s hitting them on stage. When he’s off . . . well—he’s off. So, he keeps his head down and tries to stay focused on his career and his son, Hunter. They have shared in a trauma that would bring most closer. However, theirs has only weighted their bond down, slowly causing them to drift further and further apart. 
That is until a beacon of light shines through. That beacon is about five-foot-nothing, all curves, heart, brains, and no BS. But that is only part of this story.
It’s a long road to Happily Ever After. Maddie and Declan learn that it takes more than just the two of them to get there, and it’s not a smooth stroll. It’s not meant to be, though, is it? Life can give you whiplash. Buckle in and hold tight to those closest to you because, honestly…
It takes a village to make love epic.

This may be my favorite book of this series.
Madelyn, like most of us, lives to help her friends and her patients get their affairs in order but forget to take care of herself. I love her fighting spirit and sense of humor, also the sensibility and vulnerability that lives inside of her. Declan is a talented musician and a single father. He lives for his boy and you can feel the love he has for him and how worried he is for his boy. They both went through a traumatic episode in their lives and little by little are picking up the broken pieces and starting to live a normal life again. I thought Jacquelyn did a fantastic job of developing these two characters as well as their relationship. But when they are so many insecurities and fears there is also a bumpy ride ahead of them.

And like in the first two books of this series, this is a witty, heartfelt story, filled with humor and a hearbreak, you will laugh, but you will no doubt shed more than a few tears. I'm in awe of the author's clever ability to build a story in a way which take her readers on a variety of emotions, helping them identify better with the characters and become one with the story.

All the girls that are part of the GEG's and their significant others are showcased prominently without taking away from Madelyn and Declan's story, as a matter of fact they add to the craziness and the caring spirit this group has between them and for each other.

So grab a glass of wine, relax and start reading this beauty (yes, it is part of a series but it can be read as a standalone) and while you're at it pick up the first two books so you can truly understand the friendship and the love that this group of woman share.

Meet the Author

I am a domestic engineer (born and raised in NJ) whose sole responsibility is to guide three young, impressionable kids into becoming phenomenal adults. This challenging yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine), and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work this magic from the beautiful state of New Hampshire.
Before becoming a domestic goddess (not really), I spent over a decade in the medical field, where I wore more hats than the Queen.
I have loved the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl. When I wasn't reading about people and the places they lived, I was creating my own characters and adventures.
Finding myself again through my writing in The Lost & Found Series, The One, and The GEG Series has been nothing short of a dream come true. Also, it makes people feel better when I laugh randomly or talk to myself, knowing it's my characters and not "the voices" . . . that would be creepy.
