Publisher's Summary

From number-one Amazon sports fiction best seller comes a standalone new adult romance about a collegiate swimmer who falls for an Olympic track star. 

Water. The place where I feel at peace.
Free from the expectations. Away from the judgement. Weightless from the obligations. 

When I slip under the cool surface, I’m no longer sinking from the demands of family, school, and the choices that I must make. Chase my dream of the Olympics or follow the expected career path? What will it be? 

I’m not usually one to rock the boat - that's my twin sister’s role. I find myself in uncharted territory when I meet Jett Decker on my 21st birthday. It's not like me to get swept off my feet, but when I do, it creates waves with those closest to us. 

Chemistry ignites, jealousy spikes and tension builds the more we're together. Sometimes in real life the lines between what is wanted and what must be done get blurred. Not everything is crystal clear, like the line below.

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.

Liked narrator, story was okay.

The Line Below is the first book of Ali Dean I’ve ever read. Sports romance is one of my favorite genres so I was excited for a new authors and to listen to this audio, unfortunately it just wasn’t my jam. This plot fell a bit flat for me and the romance felt forced. I liked the story just fine and the audio was good. I just couldn’t connect with the story/characters this time around enough to love it.

Couple:
•Jett and Shay
•both driven athletes
•chemistry sparked and fizzled
•insta-lust
•he’s bossy-ish, but not throughout entire book
•she’s kind of a pushover

Story:
•steam factor low
•angst level HIGH
•angst felt added just for drama’s sake
•entertainment level JUST FINE
•LOVED relationship between Shay and her sister, Kick

Narration:
•Stacy Glemboski
•easy listening
•soothing, husky voice
•great flow
•good “male” voice
