Drawing the line by KD Williamson
Having your heart broken and never getting any explanations as to what happened and why it happens can force a character back into its shell and make it harder for her to get out. That’s what happens when Danni finds herself in front of her lovers’ empty drawers. Is it possible for time to heal what has been broken? Can two broken character find it in themselves to be civil to one another again, even be friends?
I don’t know why I cannot get into this series as much as others do. Williamson writes great characters with a lot of personal baggage but somehow, as intense and as good as I find her writing, I haven’t been able to get passionate about the story as much as I would’ve liked.
The characters interactions are well written, though I personally found Rick’s character annoying, and I do believe the book could’ve been better with less Rick in it. I do believe he has an important role as to help mend the bridges, but somehow, I think he spent way to much time whining and feeling sorry for himself after lying to his best friend for years, never mentioning he and Becca were still seeing each other on occasions. It brought unnecessary drama to the story and created much-unneeded angst.
I loved both Danni and Becca because they were relatable characters. I understood Danni’s need to focus on work and how passionate she is about it, and I also understood Becca’s need to run away to focus on herself and finding the person she was meant to be.
I wished the pace of the book was faster, mostly because of all Rick’s drama is putting brakes in most interactions. To me, this book was hardly a romance.
I still recommend this book, because I do believe it has a solid storyline, even if Rick broke the story for me. KD Williamson is a great author whose work is always worth a read.
