~~SUMMARY~~
 
Detective Paul Daniels has spent four and a half years mourning the loss of his wife. He’s been doing his best to raise their daughter, Chloe, with the help of his in-laws. When they inform him right before Thanksgiving that they’re going to be moving over two hours away, Paul finds himself without anyone to watch Chloe—especially when he’s called out to a crime scene in the middle of the night. Little does he know that meeting his baby brother’s girlfriend and her sister, Megan, will change everything.
Megan Carson has taken a few wrong turns in her life, but she’s doing her best to get back on track. When she meets Chloe, the little girl swiftly worms her way into Megan’s heart. The opportunity to help Paul out and watch his daughter appears to be a blessing in disguise. She quickly volunteers to be Chloe’s live-in nanny.
Everything is working well until the three of them head back to Ohio for Chris and Elizabeth’s wedding. Paul has a little too much to drink during the reception, and he and Megan end up sharing a heated kiss. When he wakes up the next day, he has a pounding headache but remembers nothing.
Megan, however, isn’t willing to forget. Over the past few months since she’s been playing nanny, her feelings for Paul have changed. He is everything she never knew she wanted, and now that she knows there might be something there, she’s going after what she wants—Paul.



~~PRAISE FOR CROSSING THE LINE~~
"I really loved the build up in this story and couldn't read fast enough to find out what happens next. Will Paul let go of his guilt from the past and give a relationship with Megan a chance? Or is Paul bad for Megan and lose her because of another mistake he makes? Read this book if you want a good romance, with a side of suspense, enjoyable characters and some smokin HOT scenes." ~Diane Williams, Goodreads

~~ABOUT THE AUTHOR~~
Sherri spent most of her childhood detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn't good at spelling, or following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason, Sherri never imagined becoming an author. At the age of thirty, all of that changed. After getting frustrated with the direction a television show was taking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending, and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more. Seven years later, Sherri is the author of seven full-length novels, and one short story. Writing has become a creative outlet for Sherri that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create. She is most well known for her Finding Anna Series about a young woman rescued from being a sex slave by a wealthy Dominant. Sherri’s eighth novel, Crossing The Line, is scheduled to release September 4, 2014.

~Guest Post~
Where and when do you write?
Unlike some authors, I don’t have a set time and place where I write. Sometimes, I’m at my desk. Other times, I’m sitting on the couch typing away on my laptop. I’ve also been known from time to time to take my laptop to the library or a local restaurant to work. Once I was sitting in the middle of a Panera writing a phone sex scene. It was rather funny as two young men kept walking behind me trying to clean things up in preparation for closing. If they were eighteen, they were barely eighteen. I can imagine their reaction had they gotten a glimpse of my screen. LOL.
The when for me also varies. I’m very much a mood writer, and I’ve learned to go with the flow. That means that if I’m in the mood to write, I write. If I’m not, then I don’t. This, of course, changes when deadlines come around. As with any job, there are times when you have to force yourself to sit down and work even when you’re not feeling it. Luckily, there are usually ways to get myself into the correct headspace.
One of the things I use is music. What works best for me is classical music. I go to YouTube and select one of the study/relaxation playlists. I set the volume to low, and off I go. Once I’m in the rhythm, I can usually pump out a little over a thousand words per hour.
I’m not sure what it is about having that melodic background music playing, but it works. Do you have something that gets your creative juice flowing?

My Crossing the Line Review ...

 After reading the Finding Anna Series I devoured anything from this lovely author, and I found another gem with this series.  These Daniel Men come from a good family, are loyal to a fault, they are sexy and successful and are trouble magnets. 

Paul Daniels is the oldest brother of the family and tries to hold it together so his family can't see his true pain after the tragic loss of the love of his life.  With his stressful job he needed help to take care of his daughter so luckly his brothers new wife's sister also needed a fresh start so she jumped at the chance to help Paul out. 


Megan has a knack for falling for losers and doesn't expect anything from Paul except to take care of his lovely daughter Chloe.  However, the more time Paul and Megan spend time together the more Megan develops feelings for Paul.  But with Paul his love for his wife is almost impenetrable until one drunken night and a passionate kiss changes everything. 

As Megan fights for what she wants Paul has do deal with his past to overcome all his fears and move forward and be happy with Megan even with the 13 year age gap.  As Paul finally gives in, trouble finds his way into their lives and potentially destroys everything but thankfully Megan has strong willed and she convinces that stubborn Paul that it is ok to love again and be loved. 

As with this whole series, it is full of sweet, suspense, angst, passion, drama and love.  I love the fact that there is always a sideline drama going on with these couples instead of the only drama being lack of miscommunication and insecurities between the couples which makes it more fulfilling read for me.
