Editor reviews 4 reviews Overall rating. Tomboy Is Still A Girl. May 31, Overall rating. Written by the same author, the wonderful Kasie West, this romance novel brings a lot of drama as usual and more sparks of attraction.

Our narrator and friendly tomboy, Charlie Charlotte Reynolds , gets a speeding ticket more times than she should, resulting in her father who is a police officer refusing to foot the bill. To reach the speeding ticket's demanded amount of a few hundred dollars, she takes a job at the last place she expects. A boutique, basically a clothing store. Which is not a good place for tomboy Charlie, who doesn't know the difference between mascara and eyeliner.

Tossed into a brand new world, Charlie now has to navigate the complicated world of mascara, clothes, lipstick, and eye shadow. Chapstick used to be her friend, but now, she has to wear makeup and fashionable clothes for her work. Pretending to be a girl with an alive mother and someone who wears makeup has taken a physical and mental toll on our narrator. She goes to the fence and talks with Braden almost every night, and that is where the best parts begin.

She is an intriguing character, but she is an even better narrator. Braden is Charlie's love interest. Though he does provide some fresh drama and tension to the book, he isn't the main focus. Charlie is. The book starts off with Charlie coasting along. The plot takes me along for the ride, and every transition flows smoothly, almost effortlessly.

It keeps going never speeding, never pulled over until the ending, which is surprisingly undramatic. It ends sweetly, in a good way. Though I do find it difficult to get into the book and empathize with Charlie's problems, the book is greatly entertaining and hilarious in the right parts. It is incredibly easy to imagine them.

Those "lugs" Charlie's brothers and Braden himself are fiercely protective of their tomboy sister, which makes them endearing and adorable. Despite being Charlie's family and individual personas, they mesh together into one creature solely dedicated to Charlie's safety. With the exception of Braden, of course.

He is his own character. Easy to read, the book isn't memorable, but it can take someone away for a few hours or so. Rating: Three out of Five Source: Library. Report this review Comments 0 Was this review helpful to you? Not On the Fence At All. July 29, There are a few authors that are "auto-buy" for me. Kasie West is one of those authors. Her writing and stories flow so naturally that I cannot put them down.

I was hooked in immediately with On the Fence. What I loved: On the Fence is a contemporary that really feels like a contemporary book to me. It hits every point on my list. I love Charlie's voice.

I liked that she wasn't a girly girl-and I also liked watching her transformation throughout the book. I feel by the end of the story she found a happy medium and felt really good about who she was. And then there was Braden I don't think so. I loved watching their story play out. They both have different family dynamics and they were both supportive of each other as true friends who just happened to be crazy about each other. Their story was easy to sink into and I think every reader would be pulling for them to figure it all out.

What left me wanting more: Nothing. This was absolutely ideal for me. Pick this up for a fun summer read! June 29, What I Loved: Kasie West is the queen of adorable. West tackles some darker issues in On the Fence, but manages to keep the tone fairly light even through the darker times.

On the Fence is a heartwarming novel about a tomboy who goes on a journey of self-discovery. Obviously, she is biologically, but, since her mother died when she was only six, leaving Charlie with three older brothers and her cop father, she never received an education on womanly ways. Charlie loves to play and watch all sports, but has no interest in clothing or makeup. In fact, this early scene really bonded me to Charlie, since I suffer a similar lack of understanding sometimes. Charlie has a really healthy attitude and is very open-minded about the people that she meets.

Forced to get a summer job after getting a second speeding ticket, Charlie gets a job at an eclectic little clothing store, close to where both Skye and Caymen from The Distance Between Us work. In different ways, she bonds with her boss Linda and makeup artist, Amber. Both of these characters could have easily been stereotypes, but West builds them out fully and looks beneath the surface.

Charlie ends up allowing Amber to put makeup on her for demonstrations and having to dress up nicer for work. At first, Charlie feels like her work self and her sporty self are different people, and she spends the summer getting used to the fact that she has more depths than she ever imagined. Though she does change her style throughout the book, the message of On the Fence is one of tolerance and open-mindedness. She starts wearing prettier clothes and feeling more confident, but only goes so far as she actually wants to and would never let that stand in the way of having fun.

The romance plays into this too, as Charlie always thought she was just one of the guys and that none of them could ever actually be interested in her. What Left Me Wanting More: The romance is a slow burn, so slow that I am a little annoyed with this trope at the moment. The evolution from friends to love takes place largely during conversations overnight through the fence.

I only wish I could have gotten to see more of them as an actual couple. The Final Verdict: Over this summer, Charlie learns more about herself and finally confronts the psychological trauma of her past.

This one or Pivot Point. Christina Franke, Staff Top 10 Reviewer reviews. Report this review Comments 1 Was this review helpful to you? Sweet Summer Romance.

June 20, I liked Charlie and her all-boy family dynamic and being the daughter of a cop myself, I could totally relate to the awkwardness of her relationship with her dad. Braden was probably my favorite character and his interactions with Charlie, both during the day and along the fence at night, made me feel all warm and fuzzy. We also got a teasing glimpse of Caymen and Xander, although she along with those creepyars dolls is the only one who shows up on the page, albeit briefly.

Skye played an important role in Charlie's story and I enjoyed getting to know her a little better.
