This story had so many angles as Janey had a wide circle of people around her that didn't necessarily have her best interests at the forefront. Good story and I liked both Jase and Janey.
My first Cindy Gerard book with a 3 star rating I liked this one, but the main problem was the story and I guess I'm not so good with superstars and fame and all (crazy lunatic stalkers, hired assassins and such) Don't really feel like writing a long review, here are just some of my thoughts...
And the book was good in itself, too! I have one little criticism regarding the plot, but otherwise I really enjoyed this book. Jase knows he'll do what it takes to get the job done, but being the Iowa country boy that he is, he's a bit thrown by the leather bustier, short skirt wearing, tattooed bad girl. But Jane is anything but a bad girl. Jason has to find a way to keep her safe and find the bad guy. Probably because Jane was such an immensely likable character. I enjoyed the romantic aspect of the book, how Jase and Jane interacted and the relationship built. It was like every character around Jane had some reason to want to hurt her. It was a good romantic suspense and I loved the characters.
Once I got over my disappointment that this wasn't going to be Dallas and Amy's book, I found myself quite happy to spend time with Jason 'Jase' Wilson. Sadly, my disappointment that this wasn't Dallas's book seems destined to continue for the time being.
There are a lot of people who want to see rock star Sweet Baby Jane Perkins dead. Then there is her psyco stalker and other strange things that just don't add up and Jace has his hands full keeping Janey safe and his heart intact.
Over the Line was another great read and I guess if I didn't already have the high 'Cindy Gerard' expectations I probably would have rated it higher, but it just didn't draw me in as much as the first three and definitely the last book I read in this series. I started reading anticipating that I wouldn't enjoy this book - and although that was untrue - I did like this book, it just wasn't as hard hitting for me as the others. Hell yes.
I liked the bodyguard/pop princess dynamic. I didn't like how once people started dropping dead around her that the bodyguard, former Army Ranger at that, has to go and buy a pistol. I felt like she was trying to put too many plot points into the book.
Janey is nothing like Ethan expected, and his assignment both easier, since she's the farthest thing from a spoiled diva, and a lot harder, since it soon becomes apparent that her stalker isn't the only one they have to worry about.
The only thing Cindy had in mind when she started writing her first book was finishing it. Now, over 20 books and numerous awards later, Cindy laughingly admits that she can barely remember life before...well, was there life before writing? A professional career woman, Cindy is a trainer for the Iowa Department of Human Services, a position she states is both challenging and rewarding. Between writing and working full time you wouldn't think Cindy would have much time for anything else. And while she does find her work and her writing rewarding, there does have to be more.
