I'm still in awe that Something There in Between is S. Ferguson's debut novel, this story grabbed me from the beginning and it practically made it impossible to want to walk away from. This is not an easy read, the references of rape and child abuse, insecurities and self blame are written to the point where I felt the emotions, my heart ached, my protective shield wanted to jump into the story slap characters around.

In this story we have Bree, raised by a mother that only saw her as a burden a

Something there in between by S. Ferguson I didn’t know what to expect , it is a heavy book and I don’t usually read this books, but as soon as I met Bree I felt that I wanted to hug her.
Loved the writing style and the editing the descriptions about the places or the smells , it made me feel as if I was reading a real life story, everything felt real, loved the sex scenes, I cried for Bree since the beginning, sometimes I wanted to shake her and tell her she was strong, Ze was amazing and of cou

What a debut! Sarah has written an emotional book about a girl Bree who has had a rough life. Her mother was the unloving and cruel type. She has no father. She had one person that she counted on in her life, her live in boyfriend, and he up and left her without a word. Bree feels worthless and unlovable.

She meets a hot guy , Declan. When Declan first sees Bree he immediately feels like there is a connection there. But Bree, between feeling like she is incapable of being loved, has a ton of wal

S. Ferguson has written an amazing debut novel. Something There In Between is packed full of emotions and feels that will tug at your heart. A believable story of two broken souls drawn to the other.

Bree life hadn’t been easy. She had grown up without her dad, a mother who often used her as a punching bag and was always critical of what she did. When Bree ran away from home with her boyfriend, Alex, she never even reported her missing.

The final blow came when Alex left for a work trip and never

S. Ferguson's debut novel was emotional, and while at times it delved into some dark themes, it was still beautiful and beyond sexy. Something There In Between is a story of healing and growth with a love story that left me smiling and at times laughing and excited to see what Ms. Ferguson writes next.

Bree has not had an easy life. Her life has shown her that she has never been good enough for anyone in her life. And the past year seemed to have proved that. But when she meets D

SOMETHING THERE IN BETWEEN: It’s hard to believe that this is S.Ferguson’s debut novel, as soon as I read that first page I was thrown into the world of hurt and chaos. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ (Bree & Declan) this gripping story will grab you by the throat.

In the ’Prologue’ we’re introduced to Bree, broken and abandoned by her boyfriend shy of a year, tired of feeling like she’s the reason behind why everyone leaves her, sitting in her favourite spot on a park bench she’s clai

"But there is always something there in between, a far off place where I am loved."

There's something to be said about going into a story blind. This book was not AT ALL what I expected. I was drawn to the series by the beautiful covers....because I'm fickle like that. LOL
Anyway, this story broke my heart into a million tiny pieces. It's raw, gut-wrenching, heart-breaking, and sad on many levels. However, its also hopeful and utterly beautiful. It's a story of finding light while surrounded by

*Sigh! What a beautiful story! I love it to pieces!!!

One of the reason why I love debut novels is the fact that I was so blind to everything. From the author's style of writing to the story and the fact that I get to follow an author's growth in her writing career. I feel like I am with the author's journey too and that's why I was so excited to get my hands on this book. And boy,Something There In Between is a wonderful debut novel.

Let me tell you something. The best thing about this book is its cover. Such a gorgeous and hot guy on it makes you want to read his story.

And I did, I read it. Actually, it started very promising and I expected an intensely emotional book but it disappointed me as it progressed.

So, after having finished it, it feels something between 2 and 2,5 points for me.

It is the story of Bree, whose father is dead and who was abused by her mother for 16 years before she finally ran away with the son of her

This is a wonderful debut novel and if I hadn't known it was the authors first book I wouldn't have even realized it. She writes with precision, heart, and soul -something that is expected with seasoned authors and hard to find with those who are new to writing. Her story, while heartbreaking in some senses, is also inspiriting and uplifting throughout. Reader should be warned though because this book will take you on an emotional roller

As I write this review I'm wondering how the h*ll people that are meant to protect, love & cherish you can be so cruel!!! I'm not sure how my heart survived Bree's story but it did.

From that prologue I could already sense that Bree's confidence level was at ground level and that it was going to take a lot to be able to get her to even have an ounce of it back in her life. I could sympathize with her because like Bree I've felt many times that I was just worthless and not worth loving. But wh

Emotional, raw and heartbreakingly beautiful. Something There in Between is the quintessential mix of every emotion all packed into one magnificent debut.
If I hadn’t already known better, I never would have guessed this was S. Ferguson’s first book. I was so engrossed in this story; I didn’t want it to end. It definitely gave me all the feels. I was sad. I was angry. I was nervous and scared. I laughed. I cried and I was turned on. *fans self* I’ll be Declan’s spider monkey ANY day.

I'm giving this debut book by a new author a five star rating...why you ask? It's not because it is the best book I've ever read ( I have too many to list) nor is it because I loved it so much...but because it is real and obviously came from a deep, dark place that the author must know about very well. At times the story gets very dark and will make you want to hide in your bed under a warm other times it is sexy and steamy and you will want more...but above all else, there are stro ...more

I loved, loved, loved the author's style of writing. So much so that I was envious through quite a bit of it. She has a way of describing the minute details and quirks of a person without it being boring. The details that a lover would notice. I felt like I knew Bree and Declan. Especially, Declan! The author did a wonderful job of building a wonderfully likable hero. And I was hooked and drawn into their story and I was rooting for them the whole time. And the chemistry between them is fire!!! ...more

For me New Years resolution involving reading, I said I would do one book a month that is out of my comfort zone. I usually prefer to read about heroine who do not hook up or have sex with men who have girlfriends. Bree ran away from her abusive mother when she was 16 years old with her boyfriend, Alex. They went to a man who was known in the area as a criminal, Ron, to look for work. There, Bree gets hired as a bartender. Shortly after, Alex

This debut novel by S. Ferguson was an emotional rollercoaster. So much so, that I am still thinking about it and that’s a good thing people! I will ask you all this, read the synopsis and trigger warnings for those who have an issue with sensitive scenarios. You’ve been warned.

From the very beginning you are going to want to hug Bree. Growing up, Bree did not have the best of life, her father disappears, her mother is not only an emotional abuser but a physical one. At the age

Wow!!! What a debut! This is exactly why I love taking chances on new authors. I get to be there from the beginning and watch them grow. It's beautiful really. I know with some it could be their one and only book but I have a feeling S. Ferguson will be around for a long time. I thought it was awesome and brave to start with a book with triggers. Triggers that could make people stop that one-click but with others it will make them click faster. That's me. I saw the warning and wanted

It’s been over two days after reading this story and I still haven’t gotten it out of my head. I keep replaying scenes in my head and the main characters in my head. The way the story was written had so much detail to it that it felt like it was really happening. I felt like I knew the characters and found myself intrigued by the secondary characters within the story. S. Ferguson has delivered a fantastic debut novel.

When I saw the blurb for S. Ferguson's debut novel Something In Between I was intrigued. I am always up for a good angsty read. But to be honest, what sold me was when I was contacted by her husband, letting me know the book was coming out. After I picked myself up from the floor where I just MELTED — seriously I. Melted.

“…you’ll realize there’s something there, something in-between that you’ve been missing.”

This was a great debut novel from S Ferguson, and with a fantastic array of characters introduced I am hoping that this is the first in a series. This book is a great foundation for the world of Ron and his men, who can resist alpha mafia men? While the mafia element of this book is only a background story, as these characters are hopefully explored I a

If you're looking for an angsty read, this book is definitely one you may want to pick up. There will definitely be trigger points for some readers (abuse and rape) but if you can read those kind of stories you'll find a character who finally figures out her self worth and learns to start living her life.

When we meet Bree, she's a broken girl. Abused by her mother and then abandoned by her boyfriend, she doesn't feel like she's worthy of love. That there is something intrinsically w

5 stars for Declan and Bree! I just loved this debut by S. Ferguson. I was immediately captivated by the harrowing story that Bree tells of her survival of her mother's abuse while growing up. I mourned right along with her on that park bench. The writing is very honest and emotional and I just wanted to give Bree a giant hug.

And along comes Declan, who has his own story of survival and is immediately drawn to her. The way he takes care of her and yet keeps his distance is very sweet. I just fe

S. Ferguson's debut novel proves she is going to be an author to watch. If you are looking for dark and gritty, there are a lot to choose from these days. It is rare to read a story able to convey beauty in ugliness.
Bree is a broken human being. She isn't just feeling sorry for herself, she completely believes she is worthless. Is she a bitter human being to other people? No, she inspires fierce love and loyalty from everyone who meets her. The journey she goes on to discover her self worth is

In Something There In Between, S. Ferguson has created a world of heartache, redemption, and a testament to the inner strength of the human spirit. I won't lie, it's not an light, fluffy, easy read. Though the fictional world of crime bosses isn't one I'm familiar with, the issues that are presented are very much a sad part of our every day world, and this novel will bring you to tears, have you cursing those who are supposed to be protectors, and gut you in a way that only well written stories ...more

OMG, loved this book!!! This is S Ferguson's debut novel it is awesome. Her writing flows as she brings her characters to life. You cry, laugh and you want to throw your kindle at the same time. You also wonder why people can be so cruel.. I must say that I fell in love with Bree and Declan what a couple. When this book is released it is a must read!!!!
Can't wait to read the next book. Thank you S Ferguson for such a wonderful book.

I loved this story, it was different and very well written. The characters had so much depth and heartbreaking backstories. Bree is beyond broken and feels she is undeserving of love from anyone in any way, shape or form. Declan wants to be the one to pick up the pieces and protect her. A riveting story with so many shocks and twists along the way. I had a roller coaster ride of emotions reading this book. Amazing debut for this new author! Congrats Sarah!
