Review: First I would like to thank the amazing author of Love Lines, Diana Nixon for providing me with a digital copy of her book for review, I'm so glad I had the chance to read this. I'm a total sucker for the whole soul-mates, love at first sight, and two people being bonded kind of thing, which is why this book was perfect for me.
Diana did a perfect blend of love, adventure and even a bit of mystery. The plot was so different from everything out there. There was no mention of vampires, werewolves, immortal beings or angels( not that I have anything against those books I mean I love most of them) however it was exciting to read about something so new. The seven families was so cool especially how each descendant bears resemblance to the founder of the family they are in. Which brings me to the Dever. I mean I really wish I could go to this school, the interaction between students, the lessons they have and the festival it's all just great.
Eileen was a great heroine. She wasn't stubborn, obnoxious or annoying. She was able to realize what was best for her and didn't get angry at people for keeping certain things secret from her. There was a part in the book where I though she was going to be angry when she found out the truth, but she took it really well and I really respected that about her. She isn't a Mary Sue kind of heroine, but she realizes that there are certain things she shouldn't be involved in yet and I really respect that about her.
Christian, he is amazing. He was sweet and open and almost had the boy next door vibe.In a way he was the typical YA hero, smart, talented, popular and let's face it hot, but he was also so much more than that. He wasn't the most powerful and still had a lot of things to learn which is something that made him really relatable.
The relationship was perfect. Even though they had intense feelings for each other from the beginning, they really didn't give into them. There was a development to their relationship, so I wouldn't call it insta-love.
This is definitely a great read with so many interesting elements that this book will be hard to put down. My only complaint which really isn't even that big of a deal is that there were small grammatical mistakes that confused me a little. However, it's not anything that would take away from the book or make reading it unpleasant.
Thus, this book gets
