Blog Tour + Review: Break Line by Sarah E Green

Title: Break Line
Author: Sarah E. Green
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 28, 2017

CristiinaReads - “Overall, this was a love story that did not only captivate my heart, but also my soul…”
The Cozy Reader - “Sarah Green has created a fantastic debut novel about overcoming challenges and fears, self discovery, and falling in love when you least expect it.”
Booklover for Life - “It's funny, sweet, romantic, and oh so sexy.”

Emery Lawson was on the path to follow her dad’s footsteps. Going pro in surfing had always been the plan. The dream.
Until it wasn’t.

Now, at nineteen, everyone thinks Emery is done surfing and, aside from two of her best friends, no one knows the truth. Emery hasn’t stopped surfing. What was once her dream is now her little secret.

But if she wants to go pro, that secret is going to have to come out. Twenty-two-year-old Sebastian “Bash” Cleaton has worked hard to get to where he is. For eight years he’s never had a day off, never taken a vacation. He is the best in his sport for a reason. But the passion that once drove him to chase the waves is missing. And Bash—Bash is tired.
When he escapes for a recharge in a small beach town, he never expects to crash into a girl who introduces him to a new life. 

Secrets, hardships, and relationships come out of this debut tale of starting over and never letting go of your dreams.

I am so incredibly proud of Sarah for writing this book and so happy that this book is finally going out into the world and into people's hands. I have read this book soooo many times in its different stages of publication, so it definitely holds a special place in my heart. I will say, I am probably biased in this review because Sarah is one of my best friends and I helped edit this book, but I honestly think you all need to read it! 

Surfing was Emery Lawson's world, especially as the daughter of surfing legend Ren Lawson. Until it wasn't. Now, Emery has to surf in secret so that the ones she loves don't force her to stop. Emery doesn't know who she would be without surfing, so she does all she can to keep it. When she runs into Bash Cleaton, pro surfer and pretty boy, Emery has no idea that Bash is fighting to hold on to the very passion she almost lost. 

What I probably loved most about this book was the characters. Emery is just so sarcastic and tells it how it is and I love her. There were so many laugh-out-loud moments when her and Bash would banter and verbally spar. Emery is the kind of person who deflects when awkward or serious conversations come out and it was so fun how the more Bash got to know her, the more he would call her out on it. Bash is someone who can challenge Emery and push her to face the difficulties in life that she'd prefer to ignore. 

I am so happy that this is a surfer story because, of the sports romances out there, we really don't get a lot of surfer stories. And this one has a female athlete as well, which is so refreshing. Because of Emery's past, it's really hard for Emery to follow her dreams, even though she really does have great, supportive parents. Bash, on the other hand, has very different parents from Emery's and he has to deal with a lot of personal things in this story as well. Instead of leaning on each other, though, Bash and Emery let each other stand strong on their own, which I loved about their relationship. 

While I loved Bash and Emery's relationship and chemistry, this book definitely sets you up to be obsessed with the next couple in this series, as well as all of the other characters in Emery's friend circle. I'm dying for her friends to each have a book and cannot wait for the next books in this series! You all have to pick yourself up a copy of Break Line and meet these amazing and endearing characters now!

Sarah E. Green is a born and raised Florida girl who has an unhealthy obsession with the beach, Netflix, and her pit-mix, Echo. She can be found either at her laptop, working on her next novel, or by the water with her latest reads. When she’s not working or reading, she’s with family, friends, or binging Teen Wolf. 
She’s currently finishing up her B.A. in Creative Writing and minor in History from UCF.
