Break the Line by Allison Mullinax

37915700As a pro-fisherman, Benson Howell’s days are spent on murky lake water, reeling in largemouth bass and winning first place trophies. At twenty-nine, life is easy and carefree. His only job is to stay in the top rankings during the fishing circuit, and keep the sponsors happy. That is, until he meets hot tempered, fiery haired Danni-Rose in small-town Alabama. He has never backed down from anything too big to reel in.

Danni-Rose has spent the past six years of her life burying her past. When Benson Howell literally plows his boat right into her life, armed with simmering anger, she fights the current pulling her closer to him. With a past she can’t let go of, and the sexy fisherman breaking down all her walls, Danni-Rose does everything she can to break the line connecting her to Benson.

Will Danni-Rose be able to let go of the past?  Can Benson change her mind about him? Or will they both miss the catch of a lifetime?

4 starsI received a copy via author in exchange for an honest review. 

“You make me braver, you challenge me, and you force me to face the things I’m afraid of. You push back when I push everyone away. You didn’t let me get away with it.”

This made me emotional in a good way! This was my first book by Allison Mullinax and I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next. I couldn’t put this down once I started reading. The southern bits weren’t overdone and thank goodness for that! 

This book is about healing and letting people in. It’s about opening up yourself up and learning to move on after something terrible happens. I’m not going to go too much into the plot because I don’t want to spoil anything for ya’ll. 

Now I really wasn’t a fan of Danni Rose at the beginning. It was a bit too much attitude. I understood her and empathized with her, but I did get frustrated with her from time to time. Benson had my heart from day one and was a damn sweetheart. Anybody that could put up with Danni Rose deserved a medal! He was patient and never not pursued her. Whatever she threw at him he caught it and never stopped being by her side when she needed him.

I loved the connection between these two so much. It was beautiful to see Danni Rose open up and let Benson into her heart. She was a fighter and so strong. She learned to move on and allow herself to be happy. 

Overall this is a good first book! I enjoyed the writing and can’t believe how emotional I became. If you are a fan of contemporary romance, then pick this one up.
