I can't for the life of me understand all the 4-5 star reviews. I wanted to like this book, I really did. The synopsis pulled me in. I mean how could it not. A woman catches her fiance cheating with her sister on her wedding day and a man who lost the love of his life in a tragic accident. The possibilities of two extreamly broken people meeting, falling in love and ultimatly healing each other were endless!! But the excutation was awful. She kept bouncing between first and third person. The tim ...more

This book needs work...

I liked it, I will read the next one for shiz but still.. IT NEEDS WORK

The author sooooo needs to work on the emotional aspect of the book.. and the bloody pace and dialogue delivery. Messed up.

The 'MOODS' of the book are fuckinggggg annoying. One moment people are bloody furious then the next they are winking at each other.. then the next they are emotional then they are all hugging like buds.

And I was like getting fucking whiplashes because of these bipolar bitches.

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

3 ⭐⭐⭐ - OK decent reads.
Wow!! What a difference in perception of the story and the characters. I really changed my tastes a lot in the last years and I will avoid re-reading some authors.
I added shelves, which I didn't have when I first read the book.

UPDATE: Re-read in October 31, 2014.
4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Liked it!
I liked the story, but ends in a cliff!!!!

I hate when I'm in the minority. I loved the premise of it, but I couldn't get into it.

How in the world did she get the impression Sam was gay on their first meeting?? I re-read that and couldn't find anything other than he says Luke is his BF, which maybe she thought was boyfriend instead of best friend?

I don't know. The potential was there, I don't know if it was my frame of mind or what, but I quit because I felt like I had the whole thing figured out before I got started and didn't care to f

Sandi Lynn has become on of my MUST buy authors. she has given us Ellery and Connor Black and NOW with her new book Love in Between she has given us Luke Matthews!

Lily thought she was going to have the prefect live, marry the man she loved, working at a school and working at a career in photography, but when she walks in on her soon to be husband (in the church minutes before walking down the aisle) having sex with her sister her world changes in an instant. after moving away from her life with

"Love in Between" is an incredibly good book. In my opinion, Sandi Lynn has written another winner!

Luke and Lily are what I call a perfect couple. It wasn't love at first sight for them, although the mutual attraction was obviously there. Their friendship developed at a realistic pace, which made it more believable for me. I absolutely loved the fact that there were no major misunderstandings, that took a big part of the book to resolve. This seems to be a common event in romance novels these d

This has to be one of the worst books I've ever read. I read a LOT and I read a lot of independently published books, so I'm not new to writers not having a good editor. However, I WISH that this author had used an editor. The writing was TERRIBLE. It completely took away from what was a promising premise to a book. The writing was so stiff and uncomfortable. I felt like I was being told feelings and emotions, rather than feeling them along with the characters. One huge thing that annoyed me was ...more

This is one of those great feel good stories. You know the ones that warm your heart with moments from a cute kid (Charley) a hot yet slightly broken male(Luke) his funny and hot best friend(Sam) a strong yet slightly broken h (Lily) and of course her two BFFs(Giselle and Gretchan). Not only did I like the lead H/h but I loved the characters that surrounded them. Knowing there is another book coming out (not until 2014, cause yes, Sandi Lynn loves to torture us LOL) I was nervous going in becaus ...more

Love in Between is the first storyline in Sandi Lynn's new Love series. The premise focuses on Lily and Luke-two twenty-something adults who have suffered heartbreak and loss. Both believe they are broken and unable to mend, but none more so than Luke who lost the only woman he has ever loved. What ensues is the building of a relationship between two strangers who begin the slow process of healing and finding themselves once again.

This is also a story that introduces several secondary characters

"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." - that pretty much sums up the start of Lily's story.

Hurt and angry, Lily decided to leave and start fresh far away from her family.

Luke Matthews lost the love of his life in a car accident. His been mourning the loss of his fiancé

I tried my best to finish this through, really, but I just couldn't get past the 85th page. The writing was horrid. I've read a lot of stories and novels written from the first person narrative, however those books were able to convey the story without doing it in an 'I did this... I did that... I then did those...' manner. Here's an excerpt from the story:

"I lifted the box out of the Explorer, and then carried it to the door of the apartment building. I set the box down for a minute while I ope

I read the blurb and decided to give it a try. The story seemed intriguing.

On the day of Lily's wedding, Lily catches her fiance doing the nasty with her sister Brynn and wait, that's not the bad part, the bad part is that her mother knew all about it, but she chose not to tell Lily.
The reason being, she did not want to hurt Lily's feelings. I mean seriously!! What the hell is wrong with you, woman!! You knew that the dude was cheating, but you did not tell your daughter because he said that he
Is it just me or is a stained cliche growing on NA/romance books? I stumbled upon this one as a freebie over the weekend. I mean who doesn't love freebies? And it sounded alright, a bit like it was going to be very predictable. But then again I'm in the need of some quick reads as the end of the year is upon us and let's face it those challenges aren't going to finish themselves. So I threw caution to the wind started my kindle up and began and torturous love story... These two are broken, as fa ...more

What a cute story. I loved Luke, he's dreamy and definitely book boyfriend material. I think Lily had a tough childhood and acted more childish than was necessary at times, but I understand her pain and why she is the way she is.
Charley was very cute and loved how she would put Lily and Luke on the spot at times.

Can't wait for the next book. I'd love to spend more time with Luke, Sam, Gretchen, Lucky and the rest of the gang :D

Wow! I absolutely enjoyed this book. It wasn't heart aching like Forever You. This was more light and a book that made me swoon all over Luke Matthews. I also love Lily, she kind of reminded me of Elle from the "Forever Trilogy" with her strong personality yet sweet presence. And all the supporting characters: Gretchen, Giselle, Sam, Maddie, Lucky and Charley were great as well!

It was a light hearted story about two broken people who found love despite the fact that they don't believe in it due

I really enjoyed this book. I am looking forward to book 2. I hope it has a little more of Lucky, Giselle, Gretchen and Sam.

The only thing I did not like was Luke pressuring Lily to forgive her mom and sister, when he could not do the same thing with Adam. I think learning your sister is having a months-long affair with your fiance on your wedding day, it's pretty big. And then learning your mom knew and did not tell you... I think Lily was entitled to her anger and if she wished not to see the
Fantastic book! I am hoping Lily never forgives her sister Brynn - I mean, it would be one thing to cheat once but this was an on-going affair... and to do to moments before the wedding? Unforgivable! And I also find it hard to believe the hoe feels any guilt - especially if it turns out she's still with or in touch with scumbag Hunter. In love or not, those two are so disgusting and don't deserve an HEA together, IMO. I'm very interested in hearing the pathetic excuses they have to give but oth ...more
It was ok, two broken people who try to chase away each other’s monsters. You know what they say it’s easy to decide for another person but when it comes to your own problem you always end up screwing it up. Sequel, you say? I don’t know if it’s worth the wait. I might’ve forgotten the story by the time it is out.

PS. It would be more fun if it dragged the gay angle a bit further, haha. ;)

Love in between

I have to say I thought this was going to be a quick easy read you know the kind you read when your in a reading slump and want to find the love for books again, this is that kind of book, it has a great storyline some good turbulent emotions and the predictable scenes in.

The storyline was a good one, two people both suffering different hurt slashing out to protect themselves but finding themselves drawn to one another despite them not wanting to. The story had love, lust, sex, hu
