In Between the Earth and Sky

What happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object?

Remington Rohan was not a rule follower.
Former model (though not one of the “super” kind), successful influencer and life coach. Currently paid to tell people how to achieve the best from their lives and careers. In other words, a complete contradiction to how he preferred to live

“You can’t claim a wild thing,” she said to Brenda. “The moment you do, a part of it dies. To keep it wild, to keep it alive, you must always keep it free. All you can do is claim yourself. And sometimes, if you’re very lucky, the wild thing will invite you to stay.”

In Between Earth and Sky, is a wild thing. It’s about two hearts living loudly and uniquely, at quite opposite spectrums. It’s about seeing someone for who they are and not wanting to trap them. It’s wanting them to stay or to take a

This story was so intense!!!! This story had to be read without interruption of TV or music. For me this was not a quick easy read. It was complicated. It needed my attention. It deserved my full attention and got it.

The characters needed to absorbed to give them their worth. Remington is so much more than a pretty face. He keeps going making me wonder what he was running from and would he realize it in time.

Lydia was born to run. She has the ability, knowledge to be anything she wants but she

Well, as always Heidi Hutchinson writes a beautiful story with the most realistic characters. Remington and Lydia are no exception and their stories are definitely larger than life. What make this story so special to me is the poetry of how it is written. Heidi- you are truly an artist with words.

It took me a few days after reading In Between the Earth and Sky to solidify my thoughts. As there are so many.

I was lucky enough to be given an ARC by the author before it’s release and I wanted to run right over here and rub it into everyone’s faces that I got this amazing read and they had to wait. That may make me an awful person but I never said I was nice.

But I couldn’t because 1. I’m a slow reader - I can’t help it, I like to savor my reads and really take my time. 2. Even after I finishe

This is not, dear reader, a simple, straightforward by the numbers love story.  In fact, I don't think that it is a traditional romance at all.  It is much more expansive than that.  

This story will transport you.  Heidi has an ability to create tangible, beautiful, soaring tales.  This book is no different.  Here, she has an arrogant, self-absorbed male protagonist, in contrast with a female lead without guile or any apparent ego.  To that mix she has added humour, a colourful supporting cast.

So I think that this may turn out to be one of the weirdest reviews I have ever written because I just don't know completely what to day. I think that this book is something magical, something beautiful. I think that this book is more than I can grasp. I think this book is like a wild thing and as the book itself says

*advance copy received for an honest and unbiased review*

so I've read all of heidis work and loved them all, but this one was different. there was something so completely different about the way this was written. this is going to sound so weird when I say this, but it almost felt too smart for me at times. there was so much in this book that I just felt was outside the realm of what my head could handle. it was almost the idealisms and some of the psychology of how these two thought was too much

4 freedom loving stars for IN BETWEEN THE EARTH AND SKY.

Lydia Larkin is a wild thing…and a hot mess. She can barely make it to her job without looking homeless, no less make it through the day without acting like a spaz. And the man who most definitely spazzes her out the most is Remington Rohan, former Marine, entrepreneur, model, business strategist and all around life guru. Remington doesn't do relationships, but would it be so bad to be friends with Lydia? Especially since she doesn't do rel

I’m not a writer. There is no way I could even hope to find the words and string them together to do this story justice.

I had to stop at so many points and think about what I had just read, then reread it again. And again.

This is an amazing story. I know the word “amazing” has many meanings and is tossed around very liberally to describe events, people, feelings, things, books... the list is long. In this instance it means soul searing, imprints in the heart, thought provoking and at t

Words escape me right now because I'm trying to process what I've just read. The author is a new author to me so I was going in blind but now that I have read her words, I'm having to calm my itchy one-click finger. While I have read other books that touched me in some way, this book seemed to come at me from everywhere. The banter between Remington and Lydia spoke to my love of dialogue while the emotions in that banter spoke to my heart. A truly lovely story that doesn't need the every other p ...more

In Between the Earth and the Sky by Heidi Hutchinson is a standalone romance novel.

Meet Lydia Larkins and Remington Rohan.
Lydia is a force of nature. When she sets her sights on something, she goes for it. Shes honest to a fault, blunt, a bit weird and just my kind of woman. I like her character, much.

Remington Rohan doesnt play by rules, a former model, now a successful life coach.
Both meet and it is dislike at the first sight.
But fate has other plans with these two. Plans that involves a accid

Wow. Just wow. Like so many of the other reviews, after reading this, I'm a bit lost for words.

This is a beautifully written book. Fully of messy emotions and deep characters. Not a traditional love story at all, but compelling, and I couldn't put it down. It stayed in my mind when I wasn't reading it.

That being said, I'm not sure I'm quite smart enough to fully understand what was trying to be said. Sometimes I would re-read a beautiful passage, and marvel at the sounds it made, but my mind wo

In Between the Earth and Sky by Heidi Hutchinson is a novel that struck me. From the first page, I found a connection with these characters, the messages Hutchinson wrote, and the journey it took me on. This is the type of book that fills me with life. It reset my love for the written word and shook a part if my soul.

The depth of this story, beyond the romantic aspect, had me reflecting and falling in love with life. This is a story about adventure, love, and one’s own journey. These themes all

Loved this book something fierce.
In Between the Earth and Sky is more than just a love story. It’s a journey. It’s a passionate one, and it’s most definitely a powerful one. A captivating story of faith and trust with plenty of challenges along the way.

Beautifully written, this story captured my attention from the beginning, grabbed ahold of my heart, and didn’t let go until the very last word. After reading the last word, I sighed, said “wow” out loud to myself, and stared off into space, pro

This one is completely different from all the Heidi's I've read. The romance, the story, the characters, they were all aiming for something else!
I enjoyed reading it. How messed up both Lydia and Rem are and how they overcome all of that and they get the soul of each other beyond everything!
Not a traditional love story but a real friendship shaping up.

Not my favorite comparing to DBS and SB but I liked it!

Pleas read this beautifully written book.

In all honesty there are not enough stars to give. This book is so overwhelmingly beautiful.... in its whole entirety. I've never read anything like it. I loved Lydia from the very start. I particularly loved how the layers of Remington were delicately pulled back revealing his true self. Phenomenal.

This book is so full of raw human emotion! It spoke to my heart - the main characters were both so different than many other stories I’ve read, yet at the same time they seemed so familiar. Heidi Hutchinson has a way of making you feel like you’ve known her characters for a very long time. My heart ached and my pulse raced for these two in this book. I hope we hear more from Remington & Lydia in the future.

This was an absolute amazing story that I loved. A lot of twists and turns that kept me trying to guess what these two would do next and was always suprised with what they actually did. Must read....

This is absolutely one of the most poetic and poignant books I've ever read! Lydia and Remington's stories are deep...individually. Yet, their minds are tuned to each other. I highlighted so much throughout. This book really touched me and made me think a lot differently about many different things. Thank you for finishing it, for pouring out your soul to write this!! It's brilliant!!!

Where to begin?

I love this book for everything that it is. It strays from conventional and traditional romance but it works. I had my doubts of course. At one point I felt like the relationship between the characters was developing too quickly, but the characters are so relatable that in the end it doesn’t matter what kind of relationship they have so long as they’re able to stay in each other’s lives. I believe there are different types of soulmates out there- friends, livers,etc. I’ve certainl

In Between the Earth and Sky is a fantastically complicated character named Lydia. I love that she is not the cookie cutter romance female lead. She is a botanist and a loveable smart aleck. She loves things in nature most people overlook. Knowing she has a love for renegades; more specifically Han Solo made her borderline perfection.

"Oh I am well aware that the most beautiful things in nature are also complicated...and dangerous."
This danger to Lydia comes in the form of the very handsome Remin

As soon as I read the summery for In Between the Earth and Sky, I knew I had to read it. Lydia sounded like an interesting and unique character, and as a scientist myself, I was curious to see how her private sector science job was worked into the plot.

The Result? In Between the Earth and Sky is different, very different from any contemporary romance book I've read before.

When I first finished it, I couldn't decide if it was a good different or a bad different, and after some thinking, I've co

There is so much to love about this book! Deeply personal forward by the soulful Zack Salaun immediately draws you in. Well crafted unconventional story challenges the assumptions that we make about others, about love and about what may be missing in our own lives. It is a love story; however, love is more of a consequence than an intention, a result rather than a reason. Free spirited Lydia and enigmatic Remington initially cannot stand each other. As we travel along with them on their journey, ...more

The romance genre isn't something that I normally read, but a friend of mine recommended this one. It was a great love story and the writing was very good, so I really enjoyed this one. There was a lot more substance than smut, which I appreciate! It's a light summer read that I would highly recommend!

My only gripe is the book cover. I'm not sure if the man on the front and the woman on the back cover are supposed to represent the lead characters - if so, I think it's a poor representation. If i

I am reading my way through the books I picked up for the library from the independent writers at the North Iowa Book Bash. I was pleasantly surprised with this story. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

It's a sweet, sassy romance between a scientist and a health guru. Hutchinson did a great job with character development and story plot and I was taken in immediately. I finished the book in two days and in that two days when I did have to leave it to "adult" I found myself wanting to make time to get bac

When I first heard that the author was writing this book based on the life a real person, I was very curious to see how this story would unfold. Would I love this hero as much as the ones she 100% creates? Will the adventure live up to others when parts are already mapped out and limits set?
Well, I devoured the book in less than 24 hrs, so I'd say YES to both questions! She noticed all the little details and found a way to fit them together and develop an amazing story! And Lydia might be my new

Heidi Hutchinson was born in South Dakota and raised the exact right distance away from the Black Hills. She had an overactive imagination very early on and wasted no time in getting most of her friends in trouble due to her unrealistic and completely ridiculous ideas.

Fueled by coffee and her unwavering and perfectly normal devotion to Dave Grohl, she writes stories that she hopes will inspire he
