    One thought on “A Line Blurred”

    1. This book was given to me as part of the Member Giveaway program in LibraryThing.My first novel by Healey which has left me positively surprised.I read the book in just a couple of days, I was completely hooked from the start.Healey gives us a glimpse of the lives of a middle aged married couple, Kevin and Kylie, for just 5 days. We see their "attempted conversations" every morning and every night and ( that's what made the difference for me) what was really going on in their minds. What got me [...]

    2. After reading Shattered Wings I had high hopes for this book. And I have to say I was not at all disappointed! Again Healey writes a story that was so emotional, and yet didn't leave me feeling emotionally drained. In this one we're following Kevin and Kylie, a couple who are part of a marriage that just isn't working anymore. Kevin is all about his routine: get up, go to work, come home, have dinner, go to bed. Not much in his life deviates from that routine. What I liked about Kevin is that he [...]

    3. I really enjoyed this story. It was a great look at the reality that family can be. I found myself sucked into the story and how real it was. The best thing about this story is that at first, you feel like Kevin is a total jerk and Kylie is a royal bitch but as it progresses you realize that they are both seriously flawed in their own way. Then, you look at the kids and realize that the issues the parents are having are reflected in the children even though they, as parents do not actually see i [...]

    4. I won this book on the giveaway program. I'm not quite sure what to think of it. I think the writing is reasonably well done, although the too-frequent errors distract someBryan could have used a good editor.In a way the story is a modern tragedy fueled by the bright line that became blurred as the main character and his wife each rationalized inappropriate behavior. It's main value is as a manual on how one can move, little by little, to a situation that never would have been realized in one s [...]

    5. I won this as part of Firstreads Giveaway-thank you!!2.5 stars. In the span of 5 days, Kevin and Kylie’s marriage, which has slowly been unraveling for years, reaches a point that may be beyond salvaging. They have each simultaneously started new relationships with other people. Kevin, depressed and driven to live by routine, finds an emotional bond with Rachel who he meets on the way to work. Kylie, a stay at home mom, who struggles with the weekday chore of getting the kids ready for school [...]

    6. Can one event conspire to ruin a life? In this novel, one blurred line sparks a chain of events throughout the novel. Kevin is a depressed executive whose life didn't turn out quite like he thought it would while Kylie, his wife, is hanging in the seemingly loveless marriage they share. Rachel comes into Kevin's life and they immediately begin an affair. Kylie begins an desperate affair with a younger man, Christopher. The unhappy spouses ignore each other and their infidelities. They eventually [...]

    7. This book was hard for me to rate. I was involved talking to them.'Don't to that or say that. They did not listen to meIt looks into Kevin and kylie's marraiage. they start fighting and talking have the fight in thier heads half the time. Kevin works in a office in town. Kylie a stay at home mom. they have a girl and a boy house in suberbs. Kevin meets Rachel on subway on monday. Same day Kylie' meets chris. You see themselves telling lies and rationalize what they are starting to doOne major li [...]

    8. I loved and hated this book. The story took me on a rollercoaster of personal emotions and memories. The view of the husbands thoughts and hurts helped to open my own eyes to the other side of a failing marriage. The story helpled give me resolution to a painful time in my personal life and a better preception of it. The emotions of the characters where very well written caputuring the mood and drama of the situation.

    9. 3.5 stars - I won this book through First Reads. Despite the typos and need for some editing, I enjoyed the story. The main characters pull the reader in as they struggle through their marriage and emotions. The plot seems to head in one direction, but the ending changes everything. I did like the ending.

    11. Giveaway! Thanks Bryan!I'm still struggling to come to terms with the ending but, overall, I thought this was a pretty good story.

    12. So I had high expectations for this book, based on all the good reviews I read but I have to say that I was disappointed. I didn't really like any of the characters, especially Kylie. I thought that she was a selfish bitch who couldn't take responsibility for her actions. Kevin and Kylie's marriage failed because of the both of them and Kylie couldn't admit to that. Even when she cheated on him, she didn't have the balls to tell him, even though he was the one that brought up the ending of their [...]

    13. I enjoyed this not because of originality in the story but because it is tragic and its hard to pull yourself away from it and because of the creative quirks of the protagonists. I think we all know a married couple in a situation like Kevin and Kylie. It did at first seem unrealistic that their lives could be so simple with so few social connections but it does happen. The one part that was unrealistic was that Kylie and the kids would always be home every single evening when Kevin returned hom [...]

    14. A marriage on the rocks causes Kevin and Kylie to reevaluate what their relationship, vows, and family means. Healey clearly describes the daily drudgery of marries life when one or both partners question it value. The characters are shallow with some twists and turns. The ending is not what you would expect.
