Merrick Drake.
Bartender, dirt bike racer, and far from settling down…until that one race, and that one girl that changed everything.
Amelia Driscoll.
Amelia took Merrick by surprise, bringing out emotions that he never knew existed. Amelia stole his heart…
Only to break it.
When fate puts Merrick and Amelia back together, it doesn’t come without a price- it comes with vengeance, determination, and putting his life on the line for the one he loves.
But, how much is Merrick willing to put on the line to have a future with no reason to hide? In the end, fate will decide…
Who’s permanent.

This is my first Ashley book and it will not be my last. While Permanent Lines is a stand-alone romantic suspense, I understand that Merrick (along with other characters) are first introduced in Ashley’s “The Forever Series”. Since I have not read them yet, I can say that you do not have to read them before reading Permanent Lines – but I will be putting them on my to-read list to find out more about these characters. So, if you are a fan of The Forever Series, you will definitely want to pick this one up.
This book as a whole was very entertaining for me. While the first half of the book did not absolutely win me over, the last half of this book I really enjoyed as it definitely made up for it and made this story for me. (I did not find this to be to too realistic/believable….but luckily for me a book does NOT have to be realistic – it is a book – a story – it is fiction).
This story is told in Merrick’s POV. Personally, a majority of the time I have a tough time connecting with most male POVs, so my feelings on this are simply “my” feelings, I am sure others will LOVE this perspective. I think that the Author knew that this could be the case with some of her readers as she put in a Preface where Merrick gives a disclaimer/warning that apologizes for his “pussy” behavior in the beginning of the book, that we will see that he was burned by Amelia – but he would do it all again because she was worth every second of misery she put him through….Merrick continues with “I don’t blame you, but just keep reading. I redeem myself pretty damn well, if I do say so myself, but beware, because holy shit do things get intense!
Well, no lie there, things do get intense….. as when you hit “that” climax point in the book, you probably will not want to put the book down, I know I did not want to and that I had to see where this was going to go.
So, if you are in search of a romantic suspense book give Permanent Lines a try – I would love to hear what you think.”
