Release Day! Between Me and You by Allison Winn Scotch ~ My Thoughts

Happy Release Day!!


Between Me and You

Between Me and You by Allison Winn Scotch
Kindle Edition, 358 pages
Published January 9th 2018 by Lake Union Publishing

From New York Times bestselling author Allison Winn Scotch comes an honest, touching, and funny exploration of falling in and out of love, told from two perspectives—one rewinding history, one moving it forward—and each with bias and regret.

When their paths first cross, Ben Livingston is a fledgling scriptwriter on the brink of success; Tatum Connelly is a struggling actress tending bar in a New York City dive. They fall in love, they marry, they become parents, and they think only of the future. But as the years go by, Tatum’s stardom rises while Ben’s fades. In a marriage that bears the fallout of ambition and fame, Ben and Tatum are at a crossroads. Now all they can do is think back…

A life of passion, joy, tragedy, and loss—once shared—becomes one as shifting and unpredictable as a memory. As the pieces of their past come together, as they explore the ways love can bend and break, Ben and Tatum come to see how it all went wrong—and wonder what they can do now to make it all right.


My thoughts about Between Me and You ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First lines—"I told myself that if she showed, that would be the sign I needed. If she showed, maybe we could find a way to rewind, rewrite, do it all over. Do it all better, Do it all again, only differently."

Between You and Me is a heartfelt story about two people who are in love–at least they were in love–trying to figure out if they are still in love. Ben and Tatum are both very insecure about themselves, and their relationship. As their lives take on the ups and downs of marriage, success, and unhappiness, they drift apart and aren't sure if they will find their way back to each other again. And really, do they want to?

This is a wonderful tale about the difficulties of love and commitments and how hard it is to try to be there through the good as well as the bad. As the author takes us, the reader, back and forth throughout Ben and Tatum's lives, we learn how their marriage got to the place it is today and we can see where it starts to go wrong. And we so want it to go right again.

',,,sometimes the only way to free yourself is to learn what you thought you couldn't know. To knock everything down and start over.'

I received a copy of Between Me and You from Lake Union Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
