New Review: Crossing the Line (Hot Jocks #4) by Kendall Ryan



By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: January 2020


About the Book


Hello, rock?
Meet hard place.

Recovering from a pulled groin muscle isn’t exactly how I planned to spend my much-needed summer vacation.

But I’ll admit, being nursed back to health by my gorgeous friend Bailey, who’s just graduated from medical school, doesn’t exactly sound like a hardship.

We spend a week together at my family’s beach house, a week of swimming and barbecues, a week of entertaining my little cousins and sleeping right across the hall from each other. A week of watching Bailey grow closer with my mom and sisters, and my wacky but lovable grandma. A week of enjoying Bailey tending to me—which is saying something, because it involves a lot of shoving ice packs into my underwear and taping up sore muscles.

She’s funny and kind, and after just being myself for the first time in a long time, my walls come tumbling down. But when Bailey says she’s not looking for a relationship, I’m bound and determined to be more than just the fun hookup who sprained his groin a second time—this time with her.

Christie’s Review


Another smart, sexy read from Kendall Ryan!

I’m always excited when I get to hang out with the Hot Jocks and their ladies again! Now, Bailey and Asher have their chance to tell their story, and what a sexy and funny one it is, complete with some swooning too!

Asher hasn’t had a great few days. He is recovering from a pulled groin and a concussion. He feels like he is letting his team down by being off the ice. There might be a light at the end of the tunnel…a week in California at his family’s beach house celebrating his sassy grandmother’s birthday, not to mention the fact that Bailey will be with him helping nurse him back to health. The two have been friends for a while, but they have never “crossed the line.” However, they discover they have some amazing chemistry between them, and they find themselves closer and closer to crossing that line.

Ryan always comes up with great characters, and this book is no exception. Asher is just adorable, especially with his grandmother and nieces and nephews. He definitely made me swoon several times. When he decides he wants Bailey, I’m not sure how she can hold out for long. 

I love all the girls in the series, but I just ADORE Bailey. She is smart, driven, and independent. She doesn’t need a man, but yet I loved seeing her vulnerable side because of Asher. They really complete each other. 

Ryan also built a fantastic group of secondary characters that really illustrated why Asher is so special. He grew up with some really great women, and I LOVED his grandmother. She, his mother, and his sisters know Bailey and Asher are meant to be together, so I thoroughly loved watching them play matchmaker. 

Crossing the Line is everything I love about Kendall Ryan. She knows how to perfectly combine sweet, sexy, and funny with unforgettable and loveable characters. I will be waiting anxiously for the next time I get to stop in with my guys and girls!!!!
