I love Christine Zolendz's books. Often, when I find an author I like, I read about half of what they write. Eventually I start finding repeats and plots that are similar to previous books they have written...and I get bored...and I stop reading. Christine Zolendz's books are never like that!

As I read this book I found myself hating Brooke, even though my heart was breaking for her. Christine Zolendz has the ability to write a story that makes you BELIEVE it. You are swept up into the lives of the people you are reading about. Like Brooke, you know Ryan is too good to be true. Like Brooke you are waiting for him to be a jerk. And, like Brooke you begin to believe in him. By the middle of this book I was cheering for Ryan. It was totally believable when his defense of her put him at odds with others.

Reading this book was like living the life of a friend. Abuse, autism, and learning to love yourself are all topics that most authors aren't brave enough to write about on their own. Christine Zolendz put all three together into a masterpiece that proves abuse can be overcome, loving yourself is okay, and people with autism are hero's in their own right. Read the series. You won't regret it.
5.0 out of 5 stars A gorgeous love story that is sweet and sexy with a bit of drama and lots of heart 12 June 2017

I loved this book. It’s the second book in Christine Zolendz’s Behind Blue Lines series (and in my opinion, is stronger than the first), and could technically be read as a standalone, but be aware that there is build up to this story in the first book, Resisting Love, so this one lands you straight into an already strong attraction with a bit of character background already developed.

Ryan Cage is a detective who has recently been transferred to a new job. He is loud-mouthed and completely filterless with a history as a bit of a player, but he took one look at his new partner’s younger sister and was instantly smitten. Brooke is also in the police force. She is strong and dedicated to her job, but a relationship turned bad has left her damaged and vulnerable. We saw them meet in the first book, there was great chemistry and lots of flirting, but Brooke wasn’t in a position to explore anything.

Brooke’s last relationship was a disaster which ended badly. There were hints of it in the last book, but here we get all of the details, and my heart broke for her. She is very self aware – acknowledging that she always falls for the bad boy, and she always falls too fast, but she remains desperate for love, even though she no longer trusts her own judgement. Added to the drama, her ex refuses to let her go. There's also a forbidden element which makes her situation even more complex. And then there’s Ryan…

Ryan has made himself a bit of a fixture in Brooke’s life. Of course they see each other at work, but he also goes out of his way to flirt and banter with her, desperate for his shot. And the more he sees her, the more he recognises what’s actually going on with her, and he becomes a shoulder for her to lean on – offering support and comfort becoming a rock.

I completely fell for Ryan in this book. On our first introduction to him he seemed like a loud-mouthed jerk, but I loved seeing his softer side come out as we get to know him – seeing him with his family, and also with Brooke, he's got the sweetest heart, and I loved his protective, supportive nature.

Their relationship is a friends-who-are-attracted-to-lovers situation, and it’s really beautifully done. There’s a lot of emotion between them, and a bit of back and forth as they figure themselves out and work out what they really want, but it’s well done and doesn’t get too angsty or irritating. It’s a really nice journey, sweet, natural, passionate and swoony, and I could feel it as they fell hard for each other.

There is external drama which adds a great side-story, tying in really well with Ryan and Brooke’s story and providing some added depth, and the questions that I was left with after finishing the first book were all answered as the story builds to its exciting climax. It all ends in a great place, with an epilogue which finishes everything off really nicely, and a hint dropped for the next book which I can’t wait to get my hands on.

Love is suppose to be wonderful and amazing. It is not suppose to be painful and dangerous. Brooke Fury fell in love and learned the hard lesson that sometimes it is not to be. But the damage to her own confidence and self-worth is the hardest hit that she is having to deal with. Being around this person almost every day has made her job hard, but because she is a cop she needs to be put that aside to do her job. The only problem is that she works with other cops and they are trained to be observant and notice deviances of behavior. And that is exactly what Ryan Cage has seen.

Ryan Cage always thought that Brooke was beautiful and strong, but there is something damaged lurking behind her eyes. And bruises appearing on her skin. Finding out the truth is hard, but it is a truth that she needs to know. But the pain and betrayal in front of her is not the only danger that is lurks in the shadows. There is a killer on the loose and now that this new information has come to light, it seems that Brooke is surrounded by something even darker than a broken heart. Now it looks like she could be the next victim, and Ryan will protect her anyway he can.

I had a bit of a hard time relating to Brooke. I really didn’t like her. It had nothing to do with the writing of the story, which was very good, but with the character herself. I did like the idea of the story and there was a lot of chemistry and drama with the characters. The story starts with a shocker of a scene, but it does a good bit of fizzle between the main characters as it goes on. But, the chemistry between the rest of the characters, good and bad, continues throughout the pages. I did enjoy the end and the comeuppance that one of the characters received. All in all, a nice story and a nice read.

Searching For Love is the second book in the Behind Blue Lines series, and while it can be read as a standalone, it will be a better experience after reading Resisting Love in my opinion. Brooke Fury is a cop who constantly sees betrayal, and destruction in her job, she just never thought that it would happen in her own life. It shattered her, and now she refuses to trust anyone, as she vowed that she'll never be hurt like that again. Detective Ryan Cage, is loyal, honest, with determination that borders on a huge in it to win it obsession. When he wants something, he doesn't stop until he succeeds. But Brooke is seriously proving to be a harder task than he's ever faced, as she won't stop pushing him away. Will he ever be able to prove to her that he's the one thing that she can count on? I really liked Christine Zolendz's writing in Resisting Love, but her talented writing style evolved in huge ways with Searching For Love. First of all, both Brooke, and Ryan had such a chemistry that the sparks became an unbreakable pull, that it was so strongly palable, that I though I was going to be shocked. Next, they were complicated, flawed, frustrating, and yet, so awesome that I want them as my own friends irl. The suspense for days kept my heart racing cover to cover, while f-bombs dropped loud and proud all over the place! At the beginning I talked about the first book not necessarily being a prerequisite to read, but I did, and still had questions left floating around, and even though they are different couples, the storylines intertwine in ways that reading them in order will make it better, but my point is that my left over questions were answered in this story. Okay, I'm done now, and don't want to end up with spoiler douchery exploding out of me, so without further ado, I HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Searching for Love is the 2nd book in this author’s series Behind Blue Lines. This book focuses on Brooke and Ryan. We get to see more of Dean and Liv but we dive further into Brooke’s troubles.

Brooke’s character is one I truly liked. The author wrote her so that any women can relate to her. She showed that it doesn’t matter who you are or what you do for a living but all of us can be lied to and deceived. Brooke fell for the wrong person, she was naïve but she was also vulnerable and was taken advantage of by someone that should have had her back. I felt sorry for Brooke when she found out the truth but when she gained her backbone again I felt proud of her. I love that she was able to eventually open her heart again and not let her past control her future. She is a strong character that grew throughout the book. I love characters that I can see change and growth in.

Ryan is a determined man who won’t let even Brooke get in the way of what he wants. He is willing to risk everything to prove to Brooke that she is stronger than she thinks. He guided her but didn’t force her into what he thought she needed to do. I loved how flirty he was, I loved the name he had Brooke under in his phone. I loved that he was cocky but when he knew when it was too much and he needed help. He took in his brother just so his Mom could have a vacation. There were so many sides of Ryan and I really liked how the author showed all of them to the reader.

This book was well written and flowed smoothly from the first book and even into the next book. I can’t wait to get Callie’s story and see more of the characters I have grown found of.
