Blurring the Lines by Mia Josephs
Christian Meyer quit his band and checked into rehab. Only, when he checks out to start his solo career, he can’t write. At all.
Corinne’s done the hollywood, famous rockstar boyfriend thing. It ended in such a huge disaster that she ran herself out of town, despite her career as a songwriter just beginning to take off. She lives in a small cabin in the woods of Washington to keep as far away from her old life as possible.
But when Christian is desperate to start his new career, and his manager has the perfect songwriter in mind, their worlds collide.
Corinne is determined to keep her distance, it’s just collaborating for a weekend. But when Chris shows up on her doorstep weeks after their meeting and pleading for help, she can’t turn him away.
With the life she now lives and the past she’s desperate to keep buried, she’ll do everything she can to protect her heart, no matter how quickly she feels herself falling.
For the first time in his life, Chris can see himself being in love, but with a tour date looming, and Corinne terrified to move forward, they both have a long road to travel if there’s a chance of them being together.
My Review: 3.5 - 4 Stars
Blurring the Lines is not your typical romance story. It's about 2 broken people who do not get their HEA the easy way. They have to work at it and make some hard decisions about who they are and what they really want in their lives.
Christian is fresh out of rehab and is trying to figure out who he is without the drugs and alcohol. He's trying to take his music career in a new direction but is having problems writing new songs. He is stuck.
Corrine is a song writer who has not had an easy adult life. She has had to face more tragedy then most people her age. She has been down the Hollywood, rocker boyfriend lifestyle road before and is very adamant about NOT getting back into it.
And when Christian and Corrine meet and all bets are off.
Corrine judged Christian for WHAT he is instead of WHO he is. I loved when he took her to his mom's house to help her see that underneath all the rock star persona he really was just a real person. She had to make some tough choices due to things that happened in the past and it was not easy for her at all. Christian struggled every day with his addiction but he stayed strong even when times got tough. In the end it seemed like Corrine and Jonah gave him the reason he needed to stay sober.
All in all it was a good read. I liked the side characters especially Jonah and Christian's mom, Brooke. Jonah was so cute! And I loved Brooke's reunion with Christian. It was so sweet!
Romance - Sketchy clean. Some of my friends will think it's not a clean read and others will think it's too clean. For me I choose sketchy clean.
Language - Moderate. There are a few f-bombs and several other swear words.
