Publisher's Summary

After a painful loss, Cady Moreland is coming to Magdalene to start the next chapter of her life. A chapter that began 18 years ago but had a heartbreaking ending. The time in between was full of family and friendship, but Cady could never get the man she fell in love with all those years ago out of her heart.

Coert Yeager has learned to live without the girl who entered his life right when she shouldn't have and exited delivering a crippling blow he never would have suspected. The time in between was full of failing to find what he was missing...and life-altering betrayal.

But when that girl shows up in Magdalene and buys the town's beloved lighthouse, even if Coert wants to avoid her, he can't. A fire in town sparks a different kind of flame that won't be ignored.

As Cady and Coert question the actions of the two young adults they once were thrown into earth-shattering circumstances, can they learn from what came in between and find each other again?

PEFECTION!!!!

There are not enough words for me to describe how much I loved this audiobook! The story was fantastic - a great second-chance romance with lots of angsty build up and super sexy steamy scenes. I flipped between reading and doing the audio and I have to say that this narrator did an amazing job bringing these characters to life! I loved this book so much - it's my favorite audiobook of 2017!

Fall in LOVE with LOVE

I am in awe!

This is exactly the kind of story that made me fall in love with Kristen Ashley’s books.

A second chance at love is just magically to me. And I loved Coert & Cady they deserved to be together.

The way they loved each other is something to strive for. You can’t have that much pain and sorrow and not have that much love.

I have loved each book in the series, but just in a different way. Cady makes you believe in hope.

I laughed, I cried, I swooned, and I smiled so much my face hurt listening to this brilliant book of love and friendship.

I am also sure I have said this before but Kristen Ashley has a way of writing kids in to a story that is not only believable but so realistic. I love this so much!

I am in awe of Erin Mallon’s ability to make me love each character. To know each voice. To fall in love with love.
Fantastic.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves romance.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Unbalanced...

This book started out as a 1 to 2 stars read and ended up at a 4. So over all it's a 3.
I had the hardest time with Cady. She wasn't just a doormat, she was the ground underneath it. People treat her horribly and she just goes back to them and apologizes to them like a dog.
Yeah. APOLOGIZES. Even though nothing was ever her fault.
Seriously.
And when she tries to reconnect with Coert, He treats are horribly. Not just horribly, but HORRIBLY.
She just keeps trying.
No matter what he says to her, she just keeps going back. Not only that, but she text him over and over, and even stalks the places he'll be at. She's that crazy, stalkery, ex girlfriend that we usually cringe at.
It. was. Maddening.
Which is saying something for me, because I actually like my heroines soft and sweet. This girl was far, far beyond that.

But things change around at about the halfway mark. I know a lot of people didn't like the last half and thought it was boring, but I thought it was a very much needed. We needed to get that sweet to balance out all that sour.

But what ended up happening was, We get this angsty, horribly unjust, incredibly sad story, and then it completely does a 180 and were drowning in "I love yous."
I just felt it needed to be a little more balanced instead of going from one extreme to the next.

I'm glad I pushed through. KA always brings it . But there have been a few that just didn't thrill me and this was one of them.
But do it. Push through, because it all works out in the end.
Just like KA always manages to do.
Because she's just that brilliant

It keeps getting better & Better !

This is my FAVORITE series of all of KA's books, and I've read A LOT of them. I was hooked with The Will, captured with Soaring, and completely submerged in The Time in Between. With each book being even better than the last, I didn't think it was possible again - but who am I to have doubted the amazing KA.
What affected me most about this story is the overall theme of forgiveness. Keep sight of your values and damn anyone who tries to get in your way. They close the door in your face, you keep it wide open. It's an important lesson to learn, especially when you've been hurt and been through hell and back. Ultimately it's love and family that matters the most.... no matter how much time has passed. This story gives hope. It sets a realistic tone that a happily ever after is always possible, it just sometimes needs time.

Not her best

What did you like best about The Time in Between? What did you like least?

It was great two catch up to previous characters from books one and two. I didn't feel any real pizazz in this book. Again it is KA who is my favorite author so she isn't capable of truly a bad book. I absolutely did not care for the narrator. I found her voice almost whiney when she spoke the lead female's dialog.

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

I think the plot's subplots were resolved in the blink of an eye. Life was just too easy. This is not KA's usual story lines. But all said KA keep writing and I will continue reading.

Another great one by KA

Beautiful ending to a series but too long... I love KA books and this one doesn't disappoint .
Worth reading but less exciting and lovely than the others she's written.

FREAKIN AMAZING !**!!

Can I have more than 5 stars please?
I'm not one to expose any of the story but I must say, this is by far the absolute BEST work by Kristen Ashley. I've read every book she's written and have been totally satisfied by each story. But this one, the way she describes everything made me feel like I was right there in the front yard, at the Police station, everywhere. I found myself wanting to plan a trip to the East Coast just to try to find this wonderful location. The narration was on spot and the storyline was really, really exceptional. ... all I can say is ..ENJOY!!

Pretty Sappy

I enjoyed the other 2 books in the Magdalene series, but this verged on insufferable.The story was far less meaty than most of the Ashley brand; The time in between has a lot of backstory but rather than filling it out and answering many unanswered questions, it concentrated too much on the 'now', which is a rather lackluster, 'does he or doesn't he?' then 'of course he does!' story in which the heroine seems emotionally arrested at the mooney-eyed age of 16.

This is re enforced by reader Erin Mallon, whose general performance is excellent, but the childlike inflection and breathy choices for protagonist Cady that work when the character is 23 years old make her sound just too childlike and needy for the 41 year old woman of the 'now'.

I finished it, but I think this is the first time I've considered returning a Kristen Ashley brand book.

Good Kristen Ashley fare

Ties in well with the other Magdalene series. Narration was OK. I would have like a little more story once they got together, some things just seemed to drift off. I suppose what I mean is it lacked a little excitement. It was OK.
