Blurb : Everything in Between: An Everything After Rocker Romance

Gabe Preston.

 

The man who wrecked me; who tore through my life leaving no stone unturned and then simply walked away.It took me two years to piece my life back together in the aftermath of his storm. Two years and still even the mention of his name causes my chest to constrict.I hate him. I hate everything about him. I hate how he thinks that he can walk back into my life after all this time and I’m just going to melt at his feet. If he thinks his newly found ROCKSTAR status holds any power over me at all, he couldn’t be more wrong. If anything, it makes me hate him more.

 

Only I don’t hate him. Not even a little. One smile and the last two years all but vanish. But I know what loving a man like Gabe Preston will do to a girl. I’ve lived it firsthand. I won’t make the same mistake twice. Not knowing what I know.He may be used to having all the power, but I’m the one with the secret that will change everything.

 

Everything in Between is a standalone rocker romance novel that can read by itself or following Killian and Nora’s story in Everything After

 

Review : Shortly before getting this book I read the first book in this series to get a feeling what I am dealing with. “Everything in Between” by Melissa Toppen was different from the first book.

 

To me it felt that Gabe had changed or maybe we did not see enough of the real him in the first book. I like the writing style from this author it has something unique to it. Her characters have an “insta” feeling around them without being too much.

 

Usually “Insta”-anything does not make me feel to good while reading because my mind struggles to make the connections to the characters and that is something that is very important to me.

 

The story was drafted so carefully that it did not feel like an instant connection but really more like the second chance it really was even though it moved to fast for that and the characters did not really know each other so well.

 

Following this story it only felt to me that I could not quite wrap my brain around the contacting thing. I believe if you really – like REALLY want to get in contact there is always some sort of possibility – the author should have selected a different way out of this as an explanation.

 

There was something between the characters that I as a reader felt was worth exploring and I liked to follow the plot to its finish line.

 

While predictable it was still a pleasant ride and I would like to read more from this series
