Crossing the Line by Kele Moon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wyatt Conner is a hard man. A sixth generation sheriff in his hometown of Garnet. A former MMA fighter. His life is about following the rules and making sure everyone else in Garnet follows them too.
Before life hurt him, Wyatt was different. Love had once blinded him to his upbringing and made him defiant against anyone who tried to separate him from the girl he loved. He easily broke laws to ensure her safety.
When she left it destroyed him.
Now she's back.
Tabitha knew coming home was a mistake, but family obligation demanded it. She wasn’t expecting to run smack into the love of her life the same day she returned.
Despite the danger, Tabitha is powerless against the wild rush of desire that explodes between them the moment she finds herself in Wyatt’s arms again. She needs a second chance too, but she can't risk Wyatt finally discovering the real reason she left.
Even for another taste of true love.
Tabitha knows her haunted past will destroy both of them if Wyatt finds out. What she suffered through was too terrible and it's the one thing that will have him crossing the line for revenge.

what a wonderful story of sacrifice in the name of love!
OKAY so aside from the previous steam factor in this series and the total Alpha's we've been treated to Crossing the Line had a much different vibe to it.
We finally get Wyatt's story a real honest to goodness HERO and sixth generation sheriff in his home town. We meet Tabitha and we also get the full story of how Wyatt and Clay became friends.
We're taken back to when they were all kids and Wyatt first sets eyes on Tabitha someone he's had a crush on since kindergarten. He will eventually become her best friend, her protector her hero all her first's and unfortunately her undoing.
Tabitha had a rough childhood growing up and tended to have her head in the clouds in order to shut out her surrounding's. She used it as a coping mechanism around her alcoholic mother, scumbag older brother and his unsavory friends. Due to her inability to see that she was better off leaving her family definitely brought on by fear she made sure to keep her relationship with Wyatt a secret for years..
Wyatt had always been head over heals for this girl and would do(and had done)anything for her. They get hitched on a whim and right when they're about to start their lives together something horrible and tragic happens, Tabitha leaves with no real explanation as to why and 13 years pass by. Wyatt never got over her and clearly the same went for her.
We find out the why's which honestly were heartbreaking, we root for them to have their second chance at Love and We got to see a wonderful web weaved with the other characters.
Best of all we got to see how there really are true Hero's out there!
I can't wait for the next in this series!
