ON THE FENCE by Kasie West

She’s a tomboy. He’s the boy next door.

With three older brothers, Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, has always been more comfortable calling the shots on a basketball court than flirting with the opposite sex. So when her police officer dad demands she get a summer job to pay for the latest in a long line of speeding tickets, she’s more than a little surprised to find herself working at a chichi boutique and going out with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game. Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with her neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden, sitting back-to-back against the fence that separates them. Braden may know her better than anyone. But there’s a secret Charlie’s keeping that even he hasn’t figured out—she’s fallen for him. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.



Just passionate kissing, but no sex talk.


*Trigger warning for suicide.* Suicide is a part of the story line, but it does not go into graphic detail.

Would I recommend this book for...

Comments: This book was addictive! Once I started it I couldn't put it down, and I finished it in one day. It's been a while since I've had a book do that, and I love it when it happens. The main issue I have with On The Fence is how suicide is handled and talked about. I have worked as a mental health professional for the last ten years, and the shaming of the character that committed suicide in this book made me cringe. I wish that depression had been discussed more in depth so that there was a more accurate portrayl of why someone in that situation would commit suicide. However, it is a good portrayl of how suicide impacts a family. Overall, I enjoyed this book, and I highly recommend it. Theresa's review: Loved this book the romance was so very cute. I would read this again. I love the girl/boy next door bit. This was clean and romantic. I would recommend it to anyone.
