CROSSING BOUNDARIES by Sam Crescent is a lovely erotic romance about a young woman who falls in love with an older man who has moved into their small community. A small town girl who has been sheltered all of her life meets an intriguing man who is twenty years her senior and the more she gets to know him, the more she grows to care for him, but he is still grieving the loss of his family.

Laura Cox is a twenty-year-old young woman who still lives with her parents in the little town of Cape Falls where nothing exciting ever happens. Her parents have allowed her to attend a small local college but have insisted that she still live at home. When Cape Falls gets a new resident, Dean Riley, Laura is immediately fascinated by this dark and brooding stranger. When Dean learns that Laura wants to become a writer, he takes her under his wing to help her develop her skill. Dean made a promise that he would never fall in love again after losing his family in a terrible accident, but will he be able to keep that promise?

I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars because while I really did like it, I just wasn't able to say that I loved it. I liked the characters and the story. Sometimes the writing and the dialogue didn't read as smoothly as I would have liked, but I was rooting for the characters and enjoyed their story. The story is compelling and has a lot of emotional ups and downs.

CROSSING BOUNDARIES has some great small town drama, plenty of heat, and lovely romance. I couldn't help but like Laura's character. She's sweet and innocent, but intelligent and full of ambition. Dean is dark, handsome, sad, and I wanted to see him find happiness. Overall, I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the second book in this series.
