Nikolai Amorosa is one of those men’s men. You know the type—allergic to feelings, couldn’t have a heartfelt discussion if he tried, which he never did. Then, he lost his voice, and any chance of communication went out the window.

Unable to speak or otherwise interact with anyone, Niko’s anger was off the charts. It could’ve been worse; he could’ve been in jail. Instead, he

This book could have been so good, but the execution was weak.

The characters did not grab me. I did not feel a connection. It all felt like words. Bland.
I really did not feel that Niko really liked Carys until 3/4 of the book. I am not sure how I felt about her either.

I got bored with the story and the attitude of the characters.
The writing style did not work for me.

Niko lost his voice when the doctor messed up on his surgery.

A friend recommended “Spaces Between Notes” to me because she had read past fanfiction that Kristina Sanchez has written and really enjoyed the world that she created. Since one of the greatest things about book blogging is finding new authors and stories, I grabbed an ARC and started reading.

In all honestly, I thought that the story had a really solid base. Niko can’t express his emotions verbally like he used to be able to do or how he wants to now so instead of talking about his anger, he go

Niko's actions put him a spot and as his friend Jamie tries to keep him out of trouble, the two of them get introduced Carys. I really enjoyed the personalities of the characters and how the stories of each one unfold gradually. I love the way that Niko's story is metered out slowly while Carys has jumped into his life without invitation and full of her suggestions about how he can change his. As time goes on, he begins to enjoy seeing her and delighting in her all-in attitude. But as the story ...more

I wanted more...

Overall I loved the story. I wanted more of the one on one time and maybe a epilogue to find out a little of what happened after. But in the end a beautiful story.

Utterly beautiful love story. It's the kind of book you simply don't want to put down - so I didn't :) I sat a full evening engulfing myself with Kristina's unique characters. I really enjoyed the love story, but above that I enjoyed getting to know Niko and Carys but also Niko's best friend Jamie, his siblings and even Carys' brother which isn't the easiest character to like in the book..

Nikolai "Niko" Amorosa is angry and upset, it's getting harder for him to manage his temper which is no won

Speaks to the heart

Tough and tender, The Space Between Notes is real, a love story between damaged people who exist with the help and hindrance of their families. The main characters have very different obstacles to overcome, and they repair their lives slowly but well. I was sorry to see this one end

Solid 4.5 bright stars

We meet our hero, Niko, going out to a bar with his childhood best friend, Jamie, who I would also say offers a certain level of comic relief. At said club we see Niko get angry and beyond frustrated due to his lack of being able to verbally communicate, so any how, he suddenly leaves and somehow finds himself beating up his old childhood home. From there we meet Carys, Nikos future love interest. Now that woman is a saint, in regards to her brother!! I would have kicked hi

Spaces Between Notes is a MUST READ!!! I really enjoyed this book and I'm guaranteeing you will as well!

Niko is a very angry person but he has a good reason to be. He was played a bad hand. He had surgery on his voice box to remove a couple of nodules and it left him without the ability to speak. Jamie, his best friend, has been by his side since they were kids. One night at a bar some dude started in on him which irritated him to the point that he left before he did something he'd regret. He we

This book was just a breath of fresh air to me. I couldn't put it down. It has everything I want in a good book, Niko is sexy and frustrated and pretty much exudes anger, he's got a decent reason. I could really feel, deeply, the chemistry between him and Carys.
I had that feeling, that I do often have with this author's books, that I am a becoming a better person while I read it. Not in a teaching kind of way. It's like that change you feel when you meet someone who is different from you, or ha

I was given an ARC for an honest review.
This is my favourite book by this author yet. Knowing a little sign language myself, I was so happy to read the descriptions of some of the signs be so accurate. The relationship between the two lead characters is heartwarming and real. Like all her books, this one is again a great character study. Emotions and inner turmoil define the book. If you’re looking for rip roaring action this is probably not the read for you, but if you love people and

I love this book! It is an intriguing look at how music, love and sign language can overcome a damaged soul. He lost his ability to speak and gained a temper, Her stubborness and ability to reach him through music and teaching him ASL changed them both. A loving homage to the deaf community and the power of love.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Great story.

Sometimes frustrating but lovely at the same time. Keeps you guessing and wondering if these two could really work out. Now you have to read it to find out.
