*This is the follow up to The Line That Binds*
While searching for answers involving Stockton Estate's stone well, Ben Shadows and LJ Wayde discover one truth: the curse is real.
Unfortunately, that truth has LJ facing the same fate that's been tied to her bloodline for generations. The curse has given her the ability to help others conquer their greatest weaknesses, but it comes with a torturous price. As the rush of helping people starts to outweigh the pain of the consequences, LJ moves toward acceptance. She considers it a gift and a possibility to make up for the way she treated people in her past.
Ben pushes on to find an end to the curse despite LJ's reluctance. With reasons linked to her Aunt Janine's memory loss, Ben fears the real consequences are far worse than LJ's current symptoms. His love for her drives his need to protect her, even if it means hiding the next piece of the well's mystery.
When LJ finds what Ben has kept secret, she may never forgive him.
Will he lose her heart before he can save her mind?

This book begins about a month after the first book ended. LJ and Ben are still trying to search for the missing well pieces. And the family curse is causing LJ headaches, nosebleeds and all around misery. Ben is her lifeline, her comfort and her love. LJ is mostly in the dark about the curse, but when she learns the truth it may be too much for her relationship with Ben to bear.
Book two has us wondering if they will uncover the truth about the curse and if Ben and LJ will last when the truth is discovered. This one did have more of a paranormal element than the first, but it still seems like the side story and not the focus through most of the book. Though that didn’t detract from the great story told in these books. I really love the story of young love and I was just as fearful as Ben at the thought that they might not end up together. I have really enjoyed reading both The Line that Binds and The Line That Breaks. I give this one 4 stars! Great love story with a paranormal twist!
The alarm clock kicked on. Its music was distant, muted. In another room? I shifted my stiff body. My back protested the movement with a pinch that rivaled a knife wound. There wasn't a comforter or any pillows around my body, only a coldness seeping up from . . .
Cracking my eyes open, I realized I was in the bathroom. I palmed the frigid, ivory-colored tile and pushed up to my knees. Every part of me ached. I glanced around and noticed a shallow pool of water inside the footed tub. A sponge lay at the bottom.
I'd cleaned again. It was starting to happen more often. Time was slipping away without recollection. I'd be lying if I said it didn't scare me at all. Part of me was terrified. The other part was already numb, ready to accept this fate. My family's fate.

the anxiety of an open-mic night at a local coffee shop. Life soon followed, with a couple of careers, marriage, and a baby. The urge to write again came not long after her daughter’s birth, this time calling for more than a few lines in a messy composition notebook.
She is a military spouse, and a veteran herself, who finds inspiration in the people she’s met and the places she’s lived and traveled.
