anticipation of the follow up book, The Line That Breaks.Now that that s out of the way I can proceed with an actual review.J.M Miller is a relatively new author on the scene, The Line That Binds is her second published novel, and holy moly I fully expect to see a great number of spectacular books from this author in the future not least of which is the follow up to this novel Books like this are why I LOVE reviewing and sharing my love for reading She makes it so easy The Line That Binds is a dual point of view story offering perspectives from both LJ and Ben Ben has lived on the Stockton Estate since he was 10, with his grandfather and the estate s owner, Jeanine or Genie At Jeanine s death, the property is divided between Ben and Jeanine s great grandniece, Lilah or LJ , on their 18th birthdays.LJ is the product of a dysfunctional family and that s putting it delicately who s used to designer labels and the cool kids table in Las Vegas Ben immediately pegs her as a snob, but that exterior wasn t enough to quell his curiosity.When Lyla s father loses his job, they move to the estate earlier than expected a few months shy of her 18th birthday Upon arrival, Ben is instructed by his grandfather to keep LJ as far from the property s wishing well as possible lest the family curse befalls LJ as well Ben doesn t wholly believe in the curse told to grant the wishes of those around the Stockton family line at the expense of the person granting them but respects his grandfather enough to try Unfortunately to no avail LJ discovers the well, and the curse continues on There are a LOT of things to like about this book The characters are great Ben is just a solid good guy with a rough past that continues to haunt him He s funny, too with just the right amount of snark LJ s struggle to leave her Las Vegas life behind is completely apparent and believable Both characters care deeply for their family and share similar backgrounds that help bring them together and cement some truly delicious chemistry.The plot is obviously along the lines of paranormal, but in a way that really isn t like anything else I ve read It s fresh It s intriguing It offers so many reasons to stay up til the late hours of the night until you ve devoured the final sentences J.M Miller is also an expert wordsmith She s talented at describing the scenes that really draw you into the atmosphere of the book A few chapters in when you finally manage to pull yourself, reluctantly, from the real world you ll be surprised that you aren t, in fact, in some grand room on the Stockton Estate That there are no tell tale signs of motorcycles revving in the background The only potential complaint that I can even struggle to come up with is that there are moments where I felt things could have moved along a littlequickly On the other hand, it s a slow build that still continues to entertain and enhances the believability of the novel You really get to see Ben and LJ get to know each other, and something tells me that Miller doesn t waste space on erroneous details I m guessing this curse which I, for one, can t WAIT to find outabout is full of depth and layers that we haven t even seen the beginning of In terms of citrus, you re looking at a pretty juicy lime There s no sex to speak of, but that doesn t mean there aren t sexy times The chemistry is pretty hawt and I d be willing to sell a lung to trade places with LJ a time or two.In conclusion buy the book Read the book Love the book Share the book Then come back here so we can talkabout what the next book might hold

cracking around himLet s not forget the slow building romance part of the story Yes, I just loved it I fully believe that stories that center around paranorm ish and supernatural aspects definitely need a romance to help balance it out and make itreal And this one did It absolutely did These two characters got to know each other and in the end it was perfect I love how it all wrapped up in the end for them Beautiful and brilliantBefore I could say anything else, his lips were on mine with passion so demanding it took my breath away In that instant, I knew this wasn t over He wasn t there to

able to end the curse once and for all before it is too late I am eager to know And I know you readers will be too 4.5 Mysterious Stars Actual rating 3.25This was an okay read, but it felt really really long Ben and L.J were both likable characters, and i liked their relationship I did like this book, but it felt like it went on forever I expected to hearabout the well, but apart from at the beginning and the end, there wasn t much said about it I really wanted to find outabout it, so that was quite annoying Overall, Slow, but an okay read. I have read a lot of paranormal romance novels I love this genre and am so glad that my blog partner introduced me to Twilight those many years ago That being said, I wasn t sure what to expect when I started The Line That Binds It seemed like a unique paranormal read from the synopsis but I never expected to fall quite so in love with the story or characters I had never heard of the author, JM Miller or anything but I am soooo happy that we were invited on this blog tour so the book and aut I have read a lot of paranormal romance novels I love this genre and am so glad that my blog partner

expected to fall quite so in love with the story or characters I had never heard of the author, JM Miller or anything but I am soooo happy that we were invited on this blog tour so the book and author could be discovered This book grabbed my attention almost immediately I was a little confused by the prologue but only because it wasn t what I expected After re reading it along with chapter 1, I was sucked in completely.The basic premise of the story is about a curse that flows from ancestor to ancestor from a scorned lover in the 1800 s The curse allows the cursed person to grant wishes but lose their mind in exchange There are no vampires, werewolves, witches or ghosts At least not yet Ben has known about the curse but believes it is nothing but folklore and superstition LJ is next in like to receive the curse but knows nothing of the curse.I love love love the characters in this book Lila Janine Wayde LJ and Ben Shadows are so amazing I love the way the perspectives alternate and keep you in each characters head I also loved that both characters are undeniably flawed and broken but can seem to repair and complete the other There is so muchI would love to tell you about these characters but you just need to READ THIS BOOK, and discover their greatness yourself What will happen to LJ Is the curse a hoax or real What will come of the new found friendship between Ben and LJ Are their pasts too horrible to overcome I honestly cannot wait for the sequel which is slated to release March 2014.I hope you love it So many times in YA, the characters are a mold that is used over and over until the details that make a character unique and human are blurred That is not the case with this book.Instead of the standard insecure but beautiful high school girl, we have LJ, a strong, gorgeous girl who had it all, was part of the popularity machine, and is a recovering mean girl who wants to disappear She s security incarnate, armed with a hoodie and Chucks instead of Burberry and

Ben, a hot, snarky, confident, totally swoonworthy guy who doesn t want the girl For a minute, at least.This is a story about judgements, and about things not being what they seem It s about doing good, trying to be better than you are It s about letting go of the past and moving forward, and in a way that spans generations in this storyline.JM Miller threw in the light elements of the supernatural that highlight the story beautifully and drive the plot, which burns slow at first until it s consumed your thoughts, and you just don t want to put it down.I cannot wait to read book two, and I ll be picking up every book by JM Miller from here out, guaranteed This book has been on my TBR list for the longest time mostly because I fell in love with the cover Seriously one of the most intriguing covers I ve seen in quite some time I finally sat down to read it this week and it did NOT disappoint I don t usually read YA, but this story captivated me from the very beginning JM

quirking an eyebrow It was a silent conversation among the chaos around himMy favorite part of this story was the mystery and the clues surrounding it, which is why I think the latter part of the book really picked up for me I found myself breezing through the story wanting to get to the next clue and I was SO intrigued by the ending I cannot wait to pick up the second book in this series because I have to know how it ends.I d highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a beautiful, well plotted story This book was smart, interesting, and left me hanging just enough at the end so that I
