In Drawing the Line by Kimberly Kincaid, Serenity Gallagher has just walked into her restaurant when she finds one of her cook injured on the kitchen floor following a break in. She wants to do everything she can to help her friend, but the 911 operator wants her to get out before the attacker comes back. Only she believes he is gone when he suddenly comes back and tries to kill her.

DTLDetective Jason Morgan has been eating every Wednesday at Mac’s with his sister, so he cannot help but be upset that the place has become a crime scene. Even more upsetting is that the cute owner has been attacked and she is the only person that can identify her attacker.

When Serenity identifies her attacker and Jason realizes that he is one of the most dangerous people out there whom vice also wants to capture he knows that things have taken a more dangerous level. He must take Serenity into protective custody and keep her safe so she can testify in court.

As Serenity and Jason spend more time alone in close quarters thing start getting more and more difficult to keep their relationship professional. The sparks fly between them and the attraction is undeniable, the question is how long can Jason hold out. Especially since he knows that Serenity is a forever kind of girl and he doesn’t want any type of commitment.

Jason being a cop protecting her but wanting to do the right thing was awesome, even if he thought that being with her was not right no matter how much he wanted her. While Serenity was having a tough time being way from her diner, he made things easier for her by getting ingredients for her to bake so it would take her mind away from her being technically under lockdown.

A great novella by Kimberly Kincaid, it is a short enough that I could read in a little spare time, but long enough that it didn’t leave me wanting. It has suspense, drama and lots of sparks between the two main characters. If you like a fast, easy and fun read with lots of steam, Drawing the Line by Kimberly Kincaid will not let you down.
