Reviewer Comments: This book is the first book in Erin McCarthy’s New Adult series, Blurred Lines. It is the story of two people who fell in love in high school, were separated and not meet up four years later. It shows all the angst of young love and the misunderstandings that can insue. Caitlyn Michaud is a junior at UMaine. She is in love with Ethan Walsh who is the perfect boyfriend as well as being popular. Ethan is sweet and well liked. He provides the stability that Caitlyn has been missing her entire life. Her parents weren’t great role models, she has a brother she doesn’t speak to and the boy she loved left her without a word four years ago. Caitlyn used college as a way to reinvent herself and thinks that she has everything figured out until that boy shows up again. Heath Deprey left Caitlyn after they both fell in love in high school. He was eighteen and she was sixteen. Caitlyn didn’t know why he left or where he went. She was devastated. When he shows up at a fraternity party four years later, Caitlyn doesn’t know what to do. She is thrilled that he is back and okay, but she is in a relationship. Heath represents her past and Ethan her future and somehow, Caitlyn has to figure out what to do. I did like this story. I liked the realism of the relationship between Heath and Caitlyn. There is a lot of drama between them which seems to be indicative of relationships between people in their 20’s. The fact that Caitlyn lives in a sorority means that she is never far from the opinions of others and their voices make her question her choices. She is also with Ethan and has to figure out if she wants to continue a relationship with him or give him up for Heath. The fact that Ethan is Caitlyn’s best friend’s brother makes things complicated. Both Caitlyn and Heath have a lot to figure out about who they are and what they want from a relationship. Adding in the past and the reasons that Heath left make trusting each other a challenge. The course of their relationship doesn’t run smoothly and they find themselves struggling to understand each other.
