After a life full of cruelty, Bree is left with no one to turn to—except him.
Declan, who’s suffered his own fair share of tragedy, sees the girl on the park bench with the sad eyes and Converse shoes as a kindred spirit —and a chance to redeem himself. He couldn’t save his mother. Maybe he can save her.
But is Bree too broken to let him in?
Declan may be her only hope for solace, if he’s strong enough to break down her walls. Will she risk letting him in … or let her pain consume her?

When I saw the blurb for S. Ferguson’s debut novel Something In Between I was intrigued. I am always up for a good angsty read. But to be honest, what sold me was when I was contacted by her husband, letting me know the book was coming out. After I picked myself up from the floor where I just MELTED — seriously I. Melted. (Let’s be honest — as I read romance novels I am imagining a man who is devoted to me and my passions… and then here is this wonderful husband supporting his wife’s career. I was sold!) I jumped on getting this book. But I was also nervous. I knew nothing more about the author, her writing anything than the blurb and that I had already fallen for her hubs! All I could think — Please let this be a good book. Please. Please. Please.
Well, let me tell you, Something There In Between far exceeded any hopes and expectations that I had had. This did NOT at all read as a debut novel. The writing was excellent and drew me in right from the start. I had to sit and read it cover to cover because I needed to know what was happening. My heart was so heavy as I was reading because it ached for what Declan and Bree lived through… but at the same time, I found so much healing as they found each other and developed a relationship. Life is NOT easy and some people suffer through extraordinary things — for me, it is how they come out of it. What they do? How they live each day. And this book showcased this in so many different ways.
The characters were so beautifully broken and flawed. Yet together they fund a way to be whole again. And by together I don’t necessarily mean they needed each other to find themselves.. but that all of them (side characters included) supported one another in the quest for self-discovery. I loved the emotional growth that you get to see in the book… watching Bree blossom was just wonderful. And seeing how she was surrounded by people who truly loved her (even when she couldn’t see it) helped to soften the tears on my heart from all she had suffered.
I found it be a beautiful, emotional rollercoaster that I was on. I just loved everything about this one and can’t wait to see what else S. Ferguson has in store. I know that I will be anxiously awaiting her next release!
I received a complimentary copy of Something There in Between.
