He stole her lipstick…and her heart.
Twenty-year-old Dani Walker can’t believe her luck when she’s paired up with the gorgeous Liam Garrett as her Acting I scene partner – or when he ends up in her bed.
Being a Plain Jane with a mouth on her hasn’t exactly served Dani well in the guy department. In fact, she’s had nothing but one night stands. Still, she lets go of her insecurities and falls for Liam, despite feeling like he’s holding something back.
When Dani finally discovers Liam’s secret, she must learn the true meaning of accepting the ones we love for who they are, or risk losing the best thing that’s ever happened to her.
Crossing was an interesting read. Oh well.. who the heck am I kidding, I had a jaw-dropping moment somewhere in between.
Dani walker must have been very lucky to get paired with a hot guy on her acting class, much more he befriended her, kissed her and finally ended up in her bed. Liam was a prince charming Dani was just dreaming about. He was out of her league, but now he's her boyfriend! He's sweet, thoughtful supports her acting career and was always there for her. Everything was okay between them, but somethings off. Just like what Liam said to her that she should trust her gut - now her gut tells her something is very wrong and she could not put her fingers on it.
When she finally discovers what he's been hiding - she was surprised and did a double take for a second. Because his secret is a make or break deal - she must learn to accept him and love him for who and what he is, or she might just lose the best thing that has ever happened to her and break her heart in the process.
I expected something else entirely, especially when the blurb talked about the lipstick stuff. I thought... but Stacey Benefiel had something entirely surprising at her sleeves. Crossing was different among any other books I have read lately. True, it was unexpected, unusual and it was something I had to digest, read again and made sure I had it correct before I was able to digest it. But Stacey made it to a point that this book was tasteful, and honest. She gave her readers a healthy dose of reality. This book - its plot and its character made its way to my heart. I may have read thousands of books, and forget some of them but this one - will MOST PROBABLY stick.
