My Thoughts:


For the first time in my life, I was afraid of the outside world.

WOW! I LOVED Merrick's character the instant he was introduced in Running from Forever, so I was freaking excited to read his own story :D! The little snippet Ashley Wilcox gave us at the end of Running from Forever, I knew I was going to love Permanent Lines.

She carried something dark and I wanted to know; I wanted to know it all...

We don't get much of Amelia's character in the beginning of the story, but what we do get is just Merrick's memories of the time they meet and spent together. I have to admit that I was intrigued by Amelia's character, because we really don't know much about her. I did kind of hate her a little bit for leaving Merrick broken hearted and without an explanation of her disappearance. Once she comes back in the story I freaking loved her. She is a brave, strong, sensitive girl that is so much full of life that she sparks Merrick's life. I wished that Ashley Wilcox could have written a few chapters in her POV, because I wanted to be inside her mind a few times.

Amelia brought out so many emotions that I never knew existed.

I freaking love Merrick :D! At the beginning he did get on my nerves, because he just wasn't living. What do I mean by this? He was so depressed and out of character with the way Amelia just left him without an explanation. I mean I do get it later on in the story, because what the love they share is worth all the risks they have to face. I just have a weakness for my tattooed bad boys, and Merrick is a dirt bike rider :D! Even though I wished reading from Amelia's POV in Permanent Lines, I can't complain from reading from Merrick's POV, because I just loved every second of it.

We didn't need words, we didn't need affection...we just needed each other.

Amelia and Merrick's relationship is another quick deep connection relationship. They meet in a dirt bike race and Merrick is instantly drawn to Amelia, and she is instantly drawn to Merrick. I loved the mystery about Amelia and Merrick's relationship at the beginning of the story, because we don't know what happened between them that made Amelia just disappear from Merrick's life. Once these two meet again their love for each other has not died, and Merrick will have to face the risks that will come with being with Amelia. Merrick's determination to have and protect Amelia just made me fall even harder for him.

No matter the storm that surrounded us, we would survive. We would still stand, untouched and perfectly fine. We were permanent.

Permanent Lines by Ashley Wilcox had my heart speeding with all the mystery and suspense of what was going to happen next in the story. Amelia and Merrick's love is one of those relationships that you will do anything to protect the one you love, even if it means risking your own life. I just can't put to words on how much I loved Amelia and Merrick's story. Permanent Lines is definitely a must read for 2014.

Final Verdict: 4.5 Stars
