Somewhere Between Us – Review

img_9077I was lucky enough to meet Holly Hall almost exactly a year ago before I even knew she was an author. Since that time I’ve come to enjoy occasionally chatting with her on social media and I just really like her as a person. Ironically, we grew up about 35 miles from one another and are the same age, but it took an author signing event in Dallas bringing us together a decade later. Funny how life works out! When I saw the chance to sign up to review for her upcoming release, I was all about it! Somewhere Between Us takes a few tropes I love and throws them into one book – Single Dad, Second Chance Romance, Small Town, Preacher’s Daughter – yes, please! Just read this blurb and tell me it doesn’t make you excited?


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.


From the beginning, I really enjoyed this story and our main character, Cam. I liked the “stuck in a small town” theme of her life and enjoyed reading from her perspective. This story had a similar, classic feel as some of my favorite Indie books for this reason alone. As soon as Jeremy came back into the picture, I was hooked. I love an angsty romance and the character’s denial as they try everything in their power to not feel precisely what they’re feeling. Holly Hall did an amazing job of conveying this aspect of their relationship.

Unfortunately, as the story crept on, I felt as if I was waiting for a certain level of excitement. I needed a twist or something unexpected to happen. Instead, the story remained quite even-keeled and didn’t deliver the feeling or the excitement I was hoping for, making the book as a whole just okay for me. I think this is partly due to the numerous Indie books I’ve read. I suppose I have become slightly jaded because many Indies feel like repeats of what I’ve already read before. I hate that this has happened and I wish I could go back to enjoying everything as I once did.

I hope Holly continues to pursue her writing career – she’s a talent! I’m thankful I was given the chance to read an ARC Somewhere Between Us! If you’d like to check this one out, be sure to snag a copy with the link below or read for free with Kindle Unlimited.
