Guest Reviews: Imaginary Lines by Allison Parr and The Dare by Hannah Jayne

Tamar Rosenfeld has been in love with New York Leopards linebacker Abraham Krasner since they were twelve years old. She'd always considered it destiny that they'd end up together…until Abe was drafted and she professed her feelings in a moment of blind excitement. The sting of his rejection was like nothing she'd ever felt before, and it's nothing she'll ever forget.

Older and wiser, Tamar has landed a dream job as a reporter for one of New York's premier athletic websites. Determined to stop being the safe, boring girl she's felt like for most of her life, Tamar makes a list of all the things she wants to do and see in her new city, and Getting Over Abraham is priority number one.

But destiny has finally chosen to interfere. Just as Tamar's decided to move on, Abe's realized she's the only woman for him. When he confides the truth, Tamar has to decide if she can put her crush behind her, or take a chance on the very man who's been holding her back all these years.

Jessica's Review:

4 stars. I really liked this book and while I may not rush out and buy it, but I've already snagged the others in the series. I loved the friendship between them and how they stood by each other through all life through at them. It wasn't full of drama, don't get me wrong, but if I had a guy stand by me like Abe did with her than I'd still be married. LOL worth reading!!!!

Two jumped off the pier that night...but only one came back alive

Bryn did everything with her best friend Erica. So when someone dared Erica to jump off the pier one night at Harding Beach, Bryn was right by her side. But when Bryn made it back to the surface, Erica was nowhere to be found. Bryn tries to make a fresh start by burying her memories of that awful night. But when a Twitter post from "EricaNShaw" pops up on her feed and a chilling voice mail appears on her phone, she realizes that someone isn't ready to let go of the past...

Jessica's Review:

4 stars. There were a few grammar issues, but other than that this was a really good book. I don't usually do the whole suspense genre, it tends to freak me out, but this one just sucked me right in and all the twists made me feel as crazy as the main character felt. I sort of figured out the bad guy before the end, but I didn't realize I was right until the end of the book. Worth a read!

Thanks to the publishers for copies of these novels for review!
