Publisher's Summary

My name is Lily Gilmore, and I was supposed to be getting married today. That was until I found my fiancé having sex with my sister in the church moments before I was supposed to walk down the aisle. I grew up with a father who was a womanizer and cheated on my mother every moment he had the chance. He would even stoop as low as to take me and my sister with him on his trysts when we were younger. Cheating was all I grew up with, and I vowed never to live the life my mother did. After finding my fiancé and my sister together, I moved from Seattle to Santa Monica to start a new life of independence and to focus on my passion for photography, man-free.

My name is Luke Matthews. About a year ago, I lost the love of my life, my fiancée, in a tragic car accident. There are no words that can describe how I’ve felt the past year. My life and all my dreams had died with her in the accident. I exist, and I play my guitar to try and ease the pain. My love was taken away, and I will never get that back.

What happens when the lives of two people who no longer believe in love are suddenly changed by fate?

Too Much Sex and Not Enough Story

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Young sexually inexperienced reader without expectations for literary construct.

Would you be willing to try another book from Sandi Lynn? Why or why not?

Not unless I spoke to her personally or received assurance that she would not use the word "grab" ever again or the phrase "there was a nock at the door." Way too much repetitious dialog!

What didn’t you like about Sandra Michelle and Angelo Carillo ’s performance?

Too flat

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Love in Between?

All the sex scenes after the first leaving only illusions to the fact that the they took place if even that was necessary. Read "The Bridges of Madison County."

Any additional comments?

The only reason I finished the book was to see what happened, which was not too inspiring or fulfilling. After the first sex I fast forwarded through similar events. I am certainly not against literary sexual material if it contributes to the story and does not become the story itself.

Great story

What made the experience of listening to Love in Between the most enjoyable?

The characters. They are unique and heartbreaking at times. Each one having survived and overcome adversity.

What other book might you compare Love in Between to and why?

I believe each book that I review stands on its own merit. Comparisons between other books would not be fair to the authors that write them.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when his niece "interrupts them". It made me laugh. She was smart beyond her years and oh so funny. I love her bluntness.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The HEA always move me. True love does prevail and not just in books.

Any additional comments?

I never get compensated for any of my reviews and have not been offered this or any other book for free in exchange for my review. Yes I give a lot of high marks, but that is mainly because if it not good I can't bring myself to finish.

No need for a second book

I really enjoyed the first half of this story. Once they got together there was too much sex and the story started to drag out. Not sure why we are getting a second book. Their story should have wrapped up here.

I also listened to the audible version. The male narrator was horrible. Every time he need Charlie I cringed. Then he used multiple voices for Luke, made Sam and the girls sound like surfer dudes. Just not good. Wish the female narrator has narrated the entire book.

Great story, good narration...believeable!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book kept me wanting more.

What other book might you compare Love in Between to and why?

Not sure.

What about Sandra Michelle and Angelo Carillo ’s performance did you like?

Very realistic, just a regular relationship!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

How they fell in love. It wasn't instant and it wasn't jumping each other. They knew it was happening and they let fate happen.

Worst audiobook I've heard in a very long time

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Content to begin withSpeed of narrator

Would you ever listen to anything by Sandi Lynn again?

I'm afraid not!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

So boring - narrated in slow motion it makes you fall asleep immediately! The change between a male and female voice to highlight the perspectives usually is a nice approach, failed here in my opinion.

What character would you cut from Love in Between?

Both main characters- one's worse than the other!

Any additional comments?

The story is boring, poor and not enticing at all. Although it sounds like it could be interesting it turns out to be very annoying. The applied language is simple to vulgar. I don't mind reading or hearing people curse at all - if it fits here and there but this book is full of the simplest language in just about any situation - in a negative way! I really tried hard, wanting to give the book a chance but finally gave up after chapter 20! The first 20 chapters could have been told in 3! If you usually enjoy a bit of variety in vocabulary - then this is the wrong book for you!

Story line could be more robust

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

There's a lot of very explicit sex in this book. It almost feels as if they added so much to flesh out the book for lack of a story line. The story itself is simplistic and dies off after about half of the book. The set up for the antagonists was great. But the solutions to the issues of the characters was much less dramatic and interesting.

Disappointing

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I have loved previous books from the author and felt sadly let down with this book , the story line has loads of potential but I felt fell short , t

What could Sandi Lynn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Selecting a cup of coffee over an alternative is described in far too much detail it's as if the small details have taken all of the writing

What didn’t you like about Sandra Michelle and Angelo Carillo ’s performance?

Sorry but Sandra narration is poor , Angelo slightly better

Was Love in Between worth the listening time?

Yes it was worth a listen but won't be in my repeat list

Any additional comments?

I felt the ending is really weak it's left hanging and so much is left to the imagination don't know of there a follow up due but think its a stand a lone book
