Fractured Lines By Jen McLaughlin Blog Tour


The lines we once crossed so easily have widened and torn us apart…

Once upon a time I thought Finn and I would live happily ever after, but real life doesn't always have a happy ending. He's testing my trust, and I'm losing faith in the man I thought I'd spend the rest of my life with, and there’s nothing I can do to stop it. He’s the one I trusted to keep me safe, but now he’s the source of my greatest pain…

Forgiveness is fragile, and some fractures never fully heal...

One mistake—a slip in a moment of weakness—might cost me everything I've worked so hard for. The thing about trust is that it's a lot easier to lose than it is to build. Just as I'm about to give up and surrender to the demons from my past, an unexpected threat reminds me what I'm best at: protecting the woman I love. Whether or not she wants me, I will fight for Carrie and our daughter, and I will keep them safe—no matter the cost.

Even if I have to put my life and my heart on the line. 



“Enough,” he growled. Catching my hair in his fist, he tugged me to my feet gently. I reluctantly let him, getting one last lick in before I succumbed and stood up. He didn’t let go of my hair. “My turn, Ginger. By the time I’m finished with you, you’ll forget how many times I made you come.”
“Yes.” My stomach tightened in anticipation. “I’m all yours.”
His eyes flashed possessively. “Damn right you are.”
With a groan, he smashed his mouth down on mine. He backed us toward the bed, his hands cupping my face as he ravished my mouth. I groaned and clung to his forearms, letting him guide me where we needed to go. When the backs of my knees hit the mattress, he followed me. His arms cradled me as he let me fall back on the bed.
Instead of lying on top of me like I’d expected, though, he slid down my body, nipping little patches of skin as he went. My good shoulder. My nipple. My stomach. My hip. And then, oh God...
His mouth closed over me, and I slung my legs over his shoulders, groaning and gripping the comforter as tight as I could with my right hand. I could feel the tension building up in my belly already. He slid his hands up my body, cupping my breasts, and scraped his thumbs over the hard nipples. When I squirmed and cried out, he did it again. It drove me wilder, each little touch he did, and I knew what I needed. I needed him to claim me.
To make me his.

A sex, drugs, and rock n’roll reputation

A body that beckoned for sin

I pull my hand away slowly, leaving all the feelings we were developing behind in the palm of his hand. 

“The timing is wrong.”


Startled, I jump in my seat. Lowering his voice, he says, “That’s a cop out. I know you feel something for me. I see how you react because I also feel it when I’m around you. There’s something here and you’re just scared.”

“Scared of what?”

“Scared to have a life without Cory and thinking you have to justify it to others.
The problem with that is that when you start justifying it, it will make you feel like your love for Cory was less. It wasn’t. It’s just different. He’s not here, Rochelle.”

“Stop it. Stop talking about Cory and take me home.”

“Now you want to stop talking about him?” He looks surprised. “I can’t win with
you when it comes to him.” He shifts the car into drive.

“This is not a competition, Dex.”

Disappointment slides onto his face. “Then why is he being shoved in my face
every time we make a move?”

“This is one of the reasons why we won’t work. We see things very differently.”

“One of the reasons? Name another because from where I sit, we fit like two
puzzle pieces clicking together.”

“You’re a supposed recovering addict. You have sex with anyone who offers. That’s it. Right there. You play like you know who I am, but you don’t. That’s why the lies are so easily believed. I can tell what you’re doing. You’re giving me an out that I don’t want. You’re allowing yourself to believe the worst about me to ease your conscience, but it won’t—”

“You know what? Not everything is about you and your past. You lost a band

mate and friend, but I lost my soulmate!”

Kim's Review
5 Stars!!!

Three years ago Rochelle Floros had a fairytale life, the love of her life, Cory the Guitarist for the band The Resistance, her son Neil and another one on the way.  Then the worst day of her life happened and Cory was ripped away from her.  She’s has spent the past few years trying to get her life back on track while grieving his death. The unexpected connection she has with Dex, the band’s bad boy drummer, has her feeling things she thought she’d never feel again.  Caught between the memory of Cory and the developing feelings for Dex, she doesn’t know what to do.  Can she get past what people think she should be and be with Dex or will this all come crumbling down on her?

I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have to say Rochelle is a strong woman.  She held herself together for everyone else and only let her feelings of grief take over at night.  She carried on despite the lost of the love of her life.  She never once forgets that her boys need her now more than ever.  She takes her role as a parent seriously and gives them everything she has.  When Rochelle takes her attraction to Dex further than she has before, she forgets herself and makes a mistake that leaves both of them reeling over what happened.  Rochelle isn’t a person who gives up easily and she shows this throughout the book time and time again as her relationship with Dex is tested by both of them.  She’s a very strong character who has the patience of a saint as she waits for Dex to get his crap together.

Dex didn’t have an easy life growing up but everything changed the day he met Rochelle.  He never told any of his band mates that he has feeling for Cory’s woman.  Dex has spent most of his twenties screwing up and Cory was always there to clean up his mess. The day Cory left Dex in Paris changed him forever.  Cory’s death meant Rochelle was available but the guilt that he died in the plane crash isn’t forgotten. Dex doesn’t let most people see the baggage he carries around but Rochelle is the only who does see it.  She is the only one who has taken the time to truly see him for who he is and not what is printed about him.  Dex may have the bad boy drinking and doing drug persona down to a T but it isn’t him.  He’s one of the strongest characters I’ve read about in a while.  He takes everything that comes at him and keeps pushing through.  He wants to be a better person so he is worthy of being with Rochelle and her boys.  He also has patience’s and takes the time to see what Rochelle is going through and waits for her as he sees her as his soul mate.

This book had me on an emotional roller coaster from the beginning.  I found it easy to relate to Rochelle, as she was a mother who just lost her significant other.  This could happen to anyone of us, just as it happened to her.  The fact that she fought to move forward and be there for her boys just shows she’s a character we can admire.  She’s strong, patience, loving and caring not just for the ones closest to her but for anyone she considers family.  She would go to the ends of the earth to help the ones she loves.  Dex is a trouble man who doesn’t know how to get what he wants.  He hides himself very well from others.  When it comes to Rochelle, you could say Dex has become an expert on her.  He has spent years studying her and knows what she needs even if she doesn’t know it herself.  Rochelle may have started out with Cory and he gave her two wonderful boys but he isn’t anything like Dex.  The relationship between Dex and Rochelle is a series of ups and downs throughout the novel, that has you wondering how much more can one person take.  I didn’t know if I should cry or be happy as I read.  This novel takes you from happy to sad back to happy so many times you’re not sure just where these two will end up but the love that Dex and Rochelle have for each other is unlike anything I’ve read before.  If you’re looking for a book that keeps you guessing what’s going to happen next with a romantic bad boy drummer, you’ve found the novel for you!!
