Review! Somewhere Between Us By Holly Hall

We were an unlikely couple: the cocky athlete and the preacher’s daughter. Once he finally won me over, he wasn’t supposed to break my heart.

Ten years later, he’s back in our hometown. Only now, he’s different. A cunning businessman, a big-city resident. 

...and the father of someone else’s child.  

When he left town, I stayed. Now I’m a teacher by day and aspiring artist by night. Dating the one man he hates more than anyone else: his brother.

I have no business falling for him again; he traded this life for one he thought was better. One that didn’t include me. But history has a way of repeating itself, and old flames? They don’t always go out.



Somewhere Between Us was unfortunately just an okay read. I had really hoped that I would have liked it more than I did because the synopsis is what really drew me in. I love second chance romances, there is something about them that I can’t help but want to read, so when a book just doesn’t live up to what  I had hoped it to be it makes me disappointed. Now I don’t know if this is the author’s first book or if she has written numerous ones but for me she was new. Cameron and Jeremy, I just didn’t feel any chemistry between them and I wish I had, I really wish I had. Something was missing, it just didn’t all click into place for me like it should of. While I am sure I am in the minority with my feelings on Somewhere Between Us, I am sure others will like this more than me.

“You really want to know who I thought you’d be with when I came back?” Jeremy said, sobering. He goes on without my answer. “I didn’t picture anyone, because I knew all along it was supposed to be me.”
I feel my pulse in my temples in the residual silence. Why? Why would he say something like that, knowing how much I yearned for him after he left? For what could’ve been?
“Not what you wanted to hear?”
My breath hisses against my teeth. “Not what I expected to hear.”
“The truth hurts sometimes.”
No kidding. It feels like tiny crowbars are wrenching open my heart, allowing him to slide in through the cracks. “And when did you find that out? Before or after you made your laps around campus?”
“I always knew it.”
Ouch. Was that supposed to hurt more or less than any other answer?
Before I get the chance to ponder that further, his hand is on my neck, his fingers curled into my hair. His mouth is on mine in less than the span of a heartbeat, the time it takes a hummingbird to beat its wings. There is no chance for reason to invade my senses, because he’s already there, his lips filling me with nostalgia, his tongue caressing the ache of loneliness that’s only expanded since the moment he left.
Time stops. Or maybe it moves backward. I can remember everything he made seventeen-year-old me feel when he singled me out in a classroom and wouldn’t accept that I didn’t want to let anyone in. That I’d embraced the isolation my classmates made me feel.
He filled me with strength. He made me forget. But most of all, he made me feel.
And then he left.
I push my chair back from the table, breaking the connection between us. The look in his eyes is half dreamy, half dazed. Not at all confused as to why I cut that reminiscent moment short.
“You can’t just kiss me like that.”
“Like what?”
“Like you never left.”
He rubs his fingertips over his lips. “You can’t tell me you don’t feel like nothing’s changed.”
“But everything’s changed.” I stand and push my hair back with both hands, clutching my head. “You hurt me, Jeremy. I don’t think you’re even aware of how much. It wasn’t just puppy love.”
“That was a different time. We were younger. We both had a lot of growing up to do.”
“You were everything to me!” I’m borderline yelling until I remember Asher upstairs in his room. I run a hand down my face and shake my head. “You’re too important to be casual. I can’t be indifferent with you.” And I can’t act like every time he touches me, the scar tissue around my heart doesn’t quake.
He stands and matches my gaze, his expression just as hard and intense as it was before. Can’t he see he has the power to break me? Can’t he see I can’t afford to let that happen anymore?
