    I requested to read this book on Netgalley for an honest review. So..hmmm. Bland? Luke warm? Boring? Yes, but not for the reasons I was expecting. I didn't think this book to be an empowering read about a woman in a male dominated work place when I requested it, and it wasn't empowering, but its DEFINITELY a book about a male dominated workplace. I have to give it to the author for doing her research.. pages after pages of the ins and outs of pipe lining! Fair juice to her! But jeeeeeeez was it I requested to read this book on Netgalley for an honest review. So..hmmm. Bland? Luke warm? Boring? Yes, but not for the reasons I was expecting.

I have to give it to the author for doing her research.. pages after pages of the ins and outs of pipe lining! Fair juice to her! But jeeeeeeez was it tedious. MC was all curves and girly cuteness, a bit lost and sweet, coming to spend a season where her granddad is a foreman at a pipe lining gig. Its harder then she thinks but she works hard and earns a little bit of "respect". The male chauvinist leader of the pack cant help to fall for her sweet self, against his better judgments (She is a distraction in the workplace! And he is angry with her! although its his stupid flipping colleagues that are being distracted) And she cant help but turning ridiculously clumsy and useless every time he is near. Love happens without much excitement, family problems gets sorted out and MC finds her true calling. The end. Oh! About 60% in to the read, I noticed an overuse of the word "Gaze", and I had great fun noting it from then on. "Jolt with surprise at the heat of his gaze", "He stood silent , his gaze intent", "She was lost in the heat of his gaze". . 23 Gazes in less than half a book, sometimes loads of gazes in a page! This is obviously nor here nor there, but it was a giggle :) I also got the feeling the author was trying to write "funny" scenes: a mud story, a fluffy armpit story, a story about a sock.. Nooooo! It didn't work for me, it disrupted whatever was going on and it was a bit cringe worthy. This book didn't sit well with my feminist self, but I really believe the author was trying to do the opposite, and Im truly impressed with the research in to pipe lining!

    I received a copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review. This was an enjoyable read. The story was slow in the beginning, but it picked up as the story. The characters were great.

He was rough around the edges, but still has a heart of gold type of character. He did a lot of things for his family. He made a lot of sacrifices, but still provided for his family. The ending was sweet. I am glad it was a happy ending. Overall, a great read.

    Andrea - Andy - is a young woman who decides to go work as engineering assistant to her estranged grandfather. Working in a man-dominated environment is hard for her, but she is stubborn and I was impressed with her dedication to succeed. Intense cold and later on heat, mud everywhere, intense labor while she is a small woman. Wow! Tristan (Rooster) is one of the foremen and is against Andy working at the pipeline. She is too small he deems and the work is too dangerous and physical. He is Andrea - Andy - is a young woman who decides to go work as engineering assistant to her estranged grandfather. Working in a man-dominated environment is hard for her, but she is stubborn and I was impressed with her dedication to succeed. Intense cold and later on heat, mud everywhere, intense labor while she is a small woman. Wow! Tristan (Rooster) is one of the foremen and is against Andy working at the pipeline. She is too small he deems and the work is too dangerous and physical. He is however attracted to Andy. His goal is to make a good impression on the engineer and discovering that's Andy's grandfather makes it difficult. And when the job ends, Rooster will go on to another pipeline-job while Andy will go home. I thought this was quite an interesting book. Not your usual romance! The only thing I disliked was the family misunderstanding, that could have been resolved easily years ago. There could have been a bit more at the end, an epilogue would have been nice! I requested and receiced an ARC via Netgalley and this is my voluntary review.

    Andy is taking time off from Grad school to go work with her Grandpa Buck in West Virginia, and she is going to be his engineering assistant on a pipeline. Her parents aren’t too thrilled, especially her mother that continues to hold a grudge against Buck over his going to work on a pipeline years ago. Even worse is the reception Andy gets from all of the other pipeline workers, which are all men. Either ignored or the butt of immature comments and jokes, Andy presses on with the hardest job she Andy is taking time off from Grad school to go work with her Grandpa Buck in West Virginia, and she is going to be his engineering assistant on a pipeline. Her parents aren’t too thrilled, especially her mother that continues to hold a grudge against Buck over his going to work on a pipeline years ago. Even worse is the reception Andy gets from all of the other pipeline workers, which are all men. Either ignored or the butt of immature comments and jokes, Andy presses on with the hardest job she’s ever done. Then there is Rooster (Travis), who isn’t sexist like a lot of the other men, but feels Andy is a distraction to the workers and that she’s too small and petite to do this job. Yet, he can’t keep his eyes off of her… Andy was an incredible, honest, humble character that I loved! Besides the obvious physical challenges of being a woman working on a pipeline, she never gave up no matter how many times she screwed up or was humiliated. And she had soooo many hilarious moments where I truly felt bad for her but couldn’t help but laugh. It was as if she went seeking out impossible situations to get herself into, but she still held her head high. Andy caught on to the job, however, and soon began earning the respect of others – specifically the handsome Travis. Sparks flying between the two of them just added to this already fantastic story. It was interesting to watch the character development in this novel in that everyone seemed to change and grow as a result of Andy working the pipeline, not just Andy herself. The best character, however, is sweet, old Buck. Not just a Grandpa type, he was a good teacher that lost his patience sometimes but also didn’t keep Andy on a short leash. He let her make mistakes, but she learned. Love on the Line is a fantastic example of a woman’s strength and perseverance and I was cheering for her the entire time. This was so different from things I have read and it was a joy to read a novel about a woman’s physical and emotional challenges of taking a job where women are not the norm. It was my pleasure to read and review this novel and cannot wait to read more from this author in the future! *Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review!

    Fascinating story! I really enjoyed this book. It's quite the story, with Andy learning to work on the pipeline with her grandfather, Buck. Back home, she was a pampered daughter, with only her studies to think about. But when she wants to leave with Buck to get to know him, and to do something different, her parents aren't that thrilled with her. As Andy goes through the first days of the pipeline job, she's unprepared for the pure physical labor and the mud and the endless climbing up Fascinating story! I really enjoyed this book. It's quite the story, with Andy learning to work on the pipeline with her grandfather, Buck. Back home, she was a pampered daughter, with only her studies to think about. But when she wants to leave with Buck to get to know him, and to do something different, her parents aren't that thrilled with her. As Andy goes through the first days of the pipeline job, she's unprepared for the pure physical labor and the mud and the endless climbing up mountains. She is amazed at the technical job her grandfather does with all his calculations and figures to make sure the pipeline ends up in the right places. As she learns how to be his assistant, she catches on a lot quicker than she thought she would and is surprised at the sense of accomplishment she has. But being the only woman on a tough men's job is not easy, and the men think of her as just an object, a woman to tease and harass. Andy even has a hard time liking a particular foreman, Travis, because he seems to think that this job is no place for a woman. The story is full of surprising struggles and twists as Andy comes into her own to find a place to belong. It's a very good book, and I highly recommend it.

    In an Oyster Shell – The pacing is slow in the beginning but picks up to be a page turning romance. The Pearls – I love the idea of a woman at work series. I am glad the author is kicking it off with a woman on the pipeline. She makes the tension of Andy working in a male dominated world, tangible. The characters were outstanding. The author had a good grip on her characters. My favorite character was the Grandpa Buck. He was rough on the outside but had a heart of gold on the inside.

Andy’s relationship with Buck really sets the tone of the story. All character was well developed. Andy was an interesting character. She wasn’t too sure of herself in the beginning but grow in confidence as the story develops. The themes in the story were compelling. There was a strong theme of family ties. I really liked that. Andy was close with her parents and she grew close to Buck. Rooster also had a close relationship with his mother. His relationship motivates him through out the story. The book was very dynamic. The Sand – The Pacing was slow at first and was hard to stick with it. When the romance got more prominent, it became easier to stay engaged.

    I really enjoyed this story! A great read full of misunderstanding and misogyny. I enjoyed having a strong female heroine that wouldn't take no for an answer. She had a dream of being an engineer and engineer she became. I didn't like that Tristan was a bit patronizing at first, just because she seemed small. Of course she seems small! She's a girl, not a guy you usually see. But that doesn't mean her work is any less. I'm glad he turned things around though and started to support her, otherwise I really enjoyed this story!

    I obtained this free e-book from Amazon and I am voluntarily writing a review. Andrea (Andy) has taken time off from her studies before going to graduate school for communications to go to work with her estranged grandfather on a pipeline for a gas company as his assistant engineer. Never mind she has no experience or no clue about what the job entitles or the conditions she will be working in. She needed something different and she has a chance to get to know her grandfather.

Never mind she has no experience or no clue about what the job entitles or the conditions she will be working in. She needed something different and she has a chance to get to know her grandfather. Buck is Andy's grandfather and she does not know that he is a well respected, well known engineer and highly sought after for job sites. In the pipe liner's world if you have the opportunity to work under Buck it pretty much guarantee's you steady work. Rooster(Travis ) is the tie in foreman of the crew and he is anxious to work with Buck and earn a name in the business. He is against woman working the right of way, they either will get hurt or cause one of the men to get hurt by being a distraction. Too bad she is one heck of a distraction.

    Love on the Line by Kirsten Fullmer is the first book in the Woman at Work series. It was an interesting read. I enjoyed a lot about the story. I liked Rooster and Andy's characters.
