Blurb : Goodreads

Katie McGarry captivated readers with her “riveting, emotional”* Young Adult debut, Pushing the Limits. In this gripping novella, she tells the story of Lila and Lincoln, who discover that sometimes it’s worth crossing the line for love…

Lila McCormick, Echo's best friend from Pushing the Limits, first met Lincoln Turner when tragedy struck both their lives. But she never expected their surprise encounter would lead to two years of exchanging letters—or that she’d fall for the boy she’s only seen once. Their relationship is a secret, but Lila feels closer to Lincoln than anyone else. Until she finds out that he lied to her about the one thing she depended on him for the most.

Hurting Lila is the last thing Lincoln wanted. For two years, her letters have been the only thing getting him through the day. Admitting his feelings would cross a line he’s never dared breach before. But Lincoln will do whatever it takes to fix his mistakes, earn Lila’s forgiveness—and finally win a chance to be with the girl he loves.


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I really enjoyed Lila and Lincoln’s novella. It was a nice little look at Lila and how she is connected to Lincoln, Echo and how she is handling her friendship with Echo and Grace.

I loved the little letters between Lincoln and Lila as chapter starters.

Lincoln is no Noah or Isaiah with their hardships and life, but he has a little story to tell us about his mistakes and loss and his link with Echo’s family.

When you lose a dearly loved family member the fall out of that loss can spread and find its way into the pores of the siblings.

I really like Lincoln and his rock climbing. I felt his passion and am glad he has found his direction. Sometimes in life we take two steps backwards before we can go forwards again. When you are a teenager, that is ok. You have time .

Vengeance was fun to watch. Loved it! 

A guy like Lincoln...well, I felt like I wanted more. He has a gorgeous personality. I really could have kept reading about him. 

Lila grew on me. Once she got her shiz back in order. Stephen the ex.....*boots him with my foot* 

I love the title of this book means more than one thing.

Katie has such a way with writing real life situations into her fiction. Her lads are always beautiful in more than looks. I can see why the girls fall for them. 
This is a great novella to bridge between Pushing The Limits and Dare You To. I have read Dare You To and I absolutely LOVED it. 

I can’t wait for Crash Into You. I have a huge place in my heart for Isaiah.



FAVE QUOTES:

Ah, hell , she smells like her letters; like lavender.



It’s crazy how you brought up feeling alone. I feel alone a lot. Oddly enough, I feel the most alone when I’m in a room full of people.



All the time, I fight the urge to cut my hair and buy new clothes. I mean, who exactly am I going to change into? I’m still me, but not.


Play this right, Lincoln. She deserves a man, not a boy.


“I didn’t want you to hate me,” I whisper as I respond to her last question. “Because I’ve fallen in love with you.”


His shirt’s back on, which is a sin. He could definitely give Echo’s guy a run for his money in the abs department.


And then I wonder what I would be like if he really was falling for me, because Lincoln in real life is a million times more intense than Lincoln in letters...and I’m seriously falling for him.



At the top of the rock, I read your letter and realized you were the one person I wished I could share the view with.”
