On the Right Side of A Line
Author- Shandy L Kurth
Genre- New Adult Action/Romance
I thought I knew where I was going. I had my life all planned out. It had been mapped for me since I was ten. When I turned fourteen I became a Raven, just like my big brother. It was a lifer thing, not something you could walk away from. I moved up the ranks quickly, just like everyone thought I would. Now at eighteen I was close to the top. I could break thumbs with the best of 'em and bust heads with the best. I was a force to be reckoned with. Yeah. I had it all together before that one event tore my life apart, and that one girl got me all confused
“You’re gonna pick up some gated brothers out here sitting around half naked.”
“I am not half naked!” she barked, finally looking up at me, her face flushing red whether it was from the heat or embarrassment, I wasn’t sure.
“You might as well be. What’s a hoity-toity like you doing on Columbus?” I bent down, checking out her bike that was leaned up against the railing, the chain still hanging off it.
“You’re a real gentlemen, you know that?” she said slapping her book shut and standing with her arms crossed.
“I never claimed to be.” I laughed as she pulled her shorts down. It didn’t help. I snapped her bike chain back into place without too much effort and stood up, wiping the grease on my jeans.
“What’s ‘gated’ mean?” she said after a minute of being a silent.
I laughed again, “Just let out…like the pen, just released.”
She bit her lip and turned to go back inside.
“Wowa! What the hell we got here?” It was JB, a Raven of the low life persuasion which is saying something since none of us were prizes. “Where’d you pick up this classy broad?” he snarled, looking her up and down.
The girl’s eyes turned huge as she crossed her arms over her chest again. It still didn’t help. I shook my head. I had way too much going on to worry about her, but something wasn’t letting me go.
“She’s my new girl. I bought her up town. What do ya think?”
“ I think you better share,” he leered, taking a step toward her, practically drooling.
“Oh, you know I never share. Shall we go?” I asked her, putting my hand out, tempting her to grab for it.
She hesitated, still leery of me as she had the right to be. She must have decided she didn’t want to be left alone in a house with JB waiting out front, waiting to catch her alone. She reached for me.

I completely loved this book!!! I was a little hesitate at first because of the gang theme but I have enjoyed the authors other books so I knew even if the story line wasn't my cup of tea that the writing would be great and she did not let me down. I ended up loving the story. Shandy did a great job of sucking me in again and making me care for these people. The story was very real, action packed and raw. This story showed the grittiness and the hopelessness that people sometimes feel. Not everyone who does bad things wants to be a bad person. When pushed to the limit people do what they need to, to stay alive... The "romance" in this story isn't what draws you into the story but it is what changes the dynamics. In the end I was not ready to let the characters go, I wanted more!!!!!!
Shandy was born and raised in Wichita Kansas. She loves writing, reading, her school kiddos, her hubby, and her babies…both four and two legged. She likes to listen to Rock and Roll… old or new and reads just about anything YA, although she’s still working on getting into the paranormal. When Shandy is writing she can't wait to see what’s going to happen next! If you don’t like her characters don’t blame her, blame them! They have a mind of their own!
