Review 'Blurring The Line' by Kierney Scott
When DEA agent Beth Thomson recruits ex-soldier Armando Torres as an undercover agent, she knows she has hit the jackpot.

He will infiltrate ‘Los Zetas’, one of Mexico’s deadliest cartels, and expose their drug-running into the USA. In turn, she promises to turn a blind eye to him finding and killing the rival cartel member who shot his best friend. Beth is good at overlooking the gruesome details of her job; her focus is the bigger picture – nailing ‘El Escorpion’, the mysterious and most-wanted leader of the ‘Los Treintas’ gang.

Torres soon climbs the cartel ladder, and has the tattoo markings to prove his loyalty. So when a secret meet with Beth goes wrong, his cover is strong enough for him to save her from his fellow gang members. His silence hints at the horrors he has performed to get him where he is, and his brutality and strength both scare and arouse Beth simultaneously. The heat between them is unprofessional and yet undeniable. But has he gone rogue? Can Beth trust him to put her mission before his own revenge? And can she trust herself with him?

My Review:

A view weeks ago I was approached by Rebecca from Northern Star Book Promotions and Tours with the question if I was interested in reading and reviewing ‘Blurring The Line’ by Kierney Scott. Although I never heard of this book or the author before, the book blurb immediately made me want to read it. So is signed up and couldn’t wait to start reading.

In ‘Blurring The Line’ we meet DEA agent Beth Thomson. Beth has been working on a big case for weeks. The DEA is trying to stop one of Mexico’s deadliest cartels, ‘Los Zetas’ and expose their drug-running into the United States. Now Beth is determined to recruit ex-soldier Armando Torres as an undercover agent. With a little persuasion Torres accepts the position. In exchange for Torres working as an undercover agent, Beth will let him deal with the man who murdered his best friend.
Now two years later, they are finally getting closer to ending the case. Torres has successfully entered the higher ranks of the cartel, but this live is taking his toll on Torres. When Beth is in danger Torres decides to help her out. Beth is the only ‘normal’ person is Torres life and with her he feels more than what he felt with anyone over the last two years.
Beth knows Torres is not the guy she should be interested in. But there’s an undeniable attraction between them. Can Beth really trust a guy who’s been living inside one of the deadliest cartels in the world for more than two years?

‘Blurring The Line’ was from the beginning a very interesting book. It’s not just some romance novel. This book is filled with a lot of thrilling and exciting parts and it was a very fun book to read. The chemistry between Beth and Torres is super exciting and enjoyable. But the investigation into the ‘Los Zetas’ cartel also keeps you on the edge of your seat. I just didn’t want to stop reading but I also didn’t want this book to end.
The writing in this book is very good. It’s intriguing and not to sweet. The strong connections in this book are good enough to make the romance work without too much sweet and mushy language.

The character I liked the most was definitely Torres. I loved how he seemed all wrong and bad at the outside, but when you get to know him a little better you get to see that he has a lot of bad history, but he still is a good person. He doesn’t want anybody to see this side of him. But when you look closely, he definitely is a good guy. Torres lost a lot in his life but still he finds the strength to care for Beth.
Beth was also a great character. I loved how she made lists and how she tried to control everything. I could definitely relate to her. Beth doesn’t trust anybody, but slowly on she tries to trust Torres. But losing control is very hard for her.

This book is the first one in the The Firing Line series and I really loved it. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. Especially knowing how this book ended. Major cliffhanger alert!
There’s nothing I can do about it.. I have a visit to Amazon in the very near future ahead of me!!

Four days after she arrived, she met her husband, who persuaded her it would be more fun to get married than write a thesis. After the birth of her daughter she decided it was time to go back to school, but soon discovered all she wanted to write was romance novels. She admitted her literary proclivities to her husband, who promptly bought her a laptop and told her to start writing her book.
