Description

When my teammates drag me to a club for my 21st birthday, the last thing on my mind is meeting a new guy. I’m not the kind of girl who gets wrapped up in a stranger on a sweaty dance floor.

Except, that’s exactly what happens. 

Only, the guy isn’t a stranger. 

He’s Jett Decker, the Olympic track star who has the entire campus buzzing with his transfer to our college. He may have given me his number, but I won’t use it. I refuse to be distracted by silly things like explosive chemistry. I’ve got my own Olympic dreams to chase. 

Turns out, whatever ignited on that dance floor can’t be put out by swimming laps.

Good Narrator

Okay I’m just feeling old after listening to this book! Lol! It is about a group of college students and I just could not connect to anyone. It was well written and I can certainly see how it would be interesting for younger listeners however as a senior I guess I am just past listening to the antics of college students. I will still give this 4 stars however as it was well written and as I’ve mentioned the storyline is interesting for those who want to read about a college romance. The narrator was excellent.

Great Duo!

I am a huge fan of Ali Dean and Stacey Glemboski from the Pepper series they have done together. They have done it again with The Line Below, this time with swimming. I’m always fascinated by the ability of Ms. Dean to include enough information about the sport of choice of the characters so that a lay reader can understand what is happening right along with the characters. Ms. Dean’s ability to explain and writing style makes you cheer for the wins and suffer the losses right along with them.

Ms. Glemboski has quickly become my favorite female narrator. She has a wide range of not only voices but also accents and emotions. It is easy to discern the characters and to feel along with them.

This book is another great combination of these two very talented women. Once again Ms. Dean’s story pulled me in, and I couldn’t stop reading. There was an unexpected twist and I was just shocked, because I was so invested and never saw it coming. That is the power of these two women. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next.

I was provided with a free copy of this audio book for my honest review. The views expressed here are entirely my own.

Coming of age!

Both Shay and Jeff are on college sport's teams. When they first meet there are instantaneous sparks between them. This is their story of a growing romance and their growing into adulthood.

Both the narrator and author are new to me. I must say I am impressed. Ali Dean wrote about characters that are strong but you also see them getting stronger with age and life experiences. Her characters support each other and watch over the ones they like and love. One of her characters has darker and deeper problems. These are just some of the life experiences many people face as they grow older. The narrator did a very good job of conveying the characters' lives to the listener. This only makes for a greater listening experience. I volunteered to receive this Audible book in exchange for an honest review. I highly recommend this Audible book.

The Line Below - Jett * Shay

I'm not normally into sports romances, but I really enjoyed this book.

I liked Jett a lot, he was protective, without being an overbearing alpha. Shay on the other hand either needed to grow a backbone or if she actually had one needed to stop letting everyone else speak for her. It absolutely drove me crazy that she let her sister talk her into doing whatever she wanted like Shay didn't have opinions and a mind of her own. And don't get me started on the sister. I was happy when Shay finally decided to figure her stuff out on her own instead of letting anyone else dictate her life for her.

Both Jett & Shay are on college sports teams. Jett runs track and has already medalled in the olympics, while Shay is a swimmer who didn't qualify at the olympic trials. They meet for the first time at Shay and her twins birthday party at a club. Jett dances with her, gives her his number, and disappears hoping she will call. They meet again a week later outside of a concert and the relationship takes off from there. Along the way they deal with Shay's ex friends with benefits, Jett's friend & sisters dislike of Shay being too much like his ex, Shay's insecurities about their relationship, etc.

Audio made it an even better story

I had already read this book before I listened to it and it was even better then could have guessed. Books with duel narration is what I prefer to listen to and I think they did a really good job with this one. I this this narrator did a awesome job doing the male sections of this book. If you have read any of Ali books or if you enjoy a more of a sports or young adult stories this book is for you. The narrator really help bring the story to life.

Two Strong Characters

I was given a copy of “The Line Below” by Ali Dean in exchange for my honest review, and here it is. Let me tell you this is a sport romance, but not what your use to reading. It was nice and refreshing to read that the main female character Shay is the star athlete going for the Olympic swim team that falls for another Olympic track star Jett. The love story between Shay and Jett is hot right of the start and only grows with every challenge they must face together. Theirs a few twists and turns but at the end they find their HEA. If you love sport romance this one is for you.

Almost Perfect

One of my favorite things about this is the almost equal time spent on the sports and romance development. Shea is very dedicated to swimming, and the scenes where she is doing swimming seem very well written. I also of course love her and Jetts relationship.

Jett and Shea felt very realistic, in the sense their relationship had ups and downs. There were issues and misunderstandings, but they were able to work through them as well.

I like that there was a lot of good supporting characters, like Sheas sister. They had their own issues that were mostly working through as well as the main characters.



I loved everything about this book except for Julian and his awful behavior and forcing Shea to kiss him and basically sexually assaulted her until Jett stepped in.

The narration was great for both Shea and Jett. I would listen to more of Stacey Glemboski narrated books.

Overall, I would give this story 4.5 stars rounded up to 5.

Great!

I was impressed by this my first novel by Ali Dean. The writing is great and I did so much incidental learning about swimming and competition in a pleasurable way. The romance was well executed with characters I liked and admired.

At the end, I was in denial it was over and wanted more. I quickly grabbed the next novel to listen to. THE LINE BELOW is about Shay, and the second novel, KICK, is about Shay’s fraternal twin, Kick. Each novel stands alone, but I’d suggest reading them in order if you can.

I recommend both stories especially on Audible for the excellent narration by Stacey Glemboski.
