*Sigh! What a beautiful story! I love it to pieces!!!
One of the reason why I love debut novels is the fact that I was so blind to everything. From the author's style of writing to the story and the fact that I get to follow an author's growth in her writing career. I feel like I am with the author's journey too and that's why I was so excited to get my hands on this book. And boy,Something There In Between is a wonderful debut novel. It was perfect and my expectations were exceeded.
I know exactly what I am.
Bree...How do I even begin with her? Right from the Prologue, my interest was heightened. I was so curious about this woman and where the book would lead me that I literally did not put the book down because I was too hooked and captivated. More than that, I pained all over because of this woman. My heart ached for her that I feel like I was so broken too. She perceive herself as a damaged goods. A broken woman who exist in the world of illusions. Barely living and flawed. Her story is so emotional and heartbreaking that reading it wrenched my heart so tight that I hurt so much. Entered Declan, just like Bree his life was never easy too. But I adore this hero so much as I adored Bree. I love how he was portrayed in the book. He may not be the usual hero I root for in every book I read but he's the kind of man/hero that is so right Bree. His protectiveness and will to give Bree what she deserves is so awe inspiring. I love him and he stole my heart. That being said, the chemistry of the two is just as strong as how broken they are. And that's one of the things I love about this book. The characters may be flawed but they are just perfect for each other. And never did I got bored reading their story. It's just perfectly imperfect and boy how I love it!
“You’re worth more than I could ever give you. I’ll never be able to give you what you deserve, what you’re worth, but I’m selfish enough to spend my life trying. I care about you enough to show you what you mean to me. Every. Single. Day.”
Really, the book is good and I'm not just talking about the characters but in totality. It may be Sarah's first book but it was well written and she really aced it. It was not long of a book but she condensed in a way that everything was covered. The words and lines of the book are heavy and full of emotions. She has a vivid way of writing a scene and she's really a good story teller. I do not know if I'll cry or scream at frustrations or just embraced it fully because damn she's a woman of mission with this work. The roller coaster ride of emotions together with the twists and turns had me on the edge while I keep on turning the pages and I tell you this, it wasn't just an emotional one but goodness!!! The sex scenes were just hot!!! She had me there and I was even looking for more. Call me crazy but despite all what was goin' on had me anticipating on her next sex scene because it was jut WOW!!! It's drool worthy and panty melting. Sure Declan and Bree just nailed it with their intimate moments. Perfectly written Sarah! You made me a slut too, turned on despite the darkness of the scene and take note I was even looking for more. ;)
"I want to taste you.
But more than all I mentioned, I love this book because it portrays so much about the realness of life and how life sometimes is just so unfair. For Bree, really I hurt for her but then, she's one of the strongest heroine I read. It's her show more than Declan. And how I love that with Declan she finally got to find herself again, to find the real her , to finally see her worth. To live and move on from the darkness of her past. Ze was right, Bree might be happy with Declan but it's within herself on how she's going to fix the broken pieces.
Kudos! I highly recommend this book. Just really a warning though, this book may not be for you.
That does it for me.
The idea that someone is hurting her causes a rage I’ve only ever felt once before in my life to flow through my entire body. I clench my fists and decide now is the moment I confront her. Is there another asshole bothering her now? Did her douchebag ex make an appearance? I will fucking end whoever did this to her. I know without asking that Jake would have my back on that move. I’d be willing to bet money Ron would as well. It takes every ounce of strength I have, but I wait until the night is a little closer to being over before snatching her arm and pulling her through the doorway into the dark kitchen. I spin her around to the wall beside the doorway, leaning down so we’re face to face, eye to eye.
“You’re gonna tell me what the fuck is going on, and you’re gonna tell me right the fuck now. Is someone hurting you? Why are your knuckles all bruised? You been fighting?” I fire off everything at once, realizing I sound like a nagging girlfriend, but I need to know she’s okay. I NEED to get this off my chest.
Bree sighs deeply, her warm breath fanning across my neck, making me aware of our proximity. I have her pinned to the wall, my left hand is still gripping her shoulder, and my right hand is on the wall above her head. I’m being a bastard, and using my size to cage her in. I watch her closely for signs of fear, but she almost looks bored, and mostly just annoyed. I know she can still refuse to answer, but I’ll be damned if she gets away from me until I have my say.
She raises her eyes to give me an angry glare and I feel my dick twitch. Seeing fire in her eyes as opposed to the sadness they always carry makes her ten times hotter. Fuck, I’m an asshole. Something is seriously wrong with her, and I’m standing here getting turned on.
“I’ve just had a lot on my mind. I’ve been…training. You know exercising and punching a bag. That’s why my knuckles are bruised.” She raises an eyebrow at me, daring me to question her more. I smirk down at her…she has no idea who she’s messing with.
“You need to wear gloves then. You’re going to ruin your beautiful hands. You’re not actually sparring are you? ”I ask, my voice deeper than I intended. I’ve never been this close to her before, and my dick is currently trying to punch its way out of my zipper to reach her.
She glances down, and I have a moment of horror when I realize there is no way she’s going to miss my erection. I’m a healthy boy, and my jeans were already on the tight side. Her breath hitches, and she jerks her eyes back up to meet mine.
When I see the heat in her eyes, I swear I almost come in my pants like a teenager. Bree is fucking turned on by me. I can work with this. Letting go of her shoulder, I put my hand on the wall, completely closing her in, and lower my head towards hers.
“I don’t fool around with Ron’s guys,” she says softly, making no move to avoid my quickly approaching lips.
“Good thing I’m not one then,” I say, my mouth forming a smirk. I’m now so close to her lips I can feel their warmth on my own.
“YO BREE, where ya at?” I hear Jake yell from outside the door. His voice is like a splash of cold water, causing me to jerk back, and the moment is gone.
“My brother is an asshole,” I grumble, lowering my hands to adjust my erection, and backing further away from her.
“Your brother just stopped me from making a stupid mistake,” she says, before walking out of the door.
