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

4 "Healing" Stars

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

"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

Actually, this book 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 mother’s friend, Alex, who later tried to sell her to a bar owner. The bar owner Ron is a very powerful and dangerous man who is also involved in illega

*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.

This book started off really strong and I was enjoying the H/h interaction.

The writing is superb and keeps you interested in the book. I didn't know that this is a borderline mafia book so I'm also quite iffy when it comes to this.

Declan was all for the heroine and he wanted to be part of her life. He makes it clear with his POV that she is long time. Then what I didn't like was his brother fobbed some skank off to him. He got a bj and a f$ck in the mens room and then decides to

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

I recently received the 3rd book in this series in a montly subscription box and was blown away by this author. I immediately found the first 2 books and downloaded for a long rainy afternoon. I have since re-read this book 3 times in May. S. Ferguson has become an instant buy for me. I don't have many on that list.

Bree and Declan's journey was painful and healing all the same time. At times, I was close to putting the story down and walking away for a breather, but I absolutely could not have

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.

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

“I need to remember that I am damaged goods. There would be no happy ending for me. If I ever forgot that, I’d run the risk of being hurt again. Something I wasn’t sure I could survive.”

This book is heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time. There is a lot of pain, fear, regret, soul searching, hope, new beginnings and healing. My words can not do this story justice so I’m going to leave a few quotes to inspire you to one-click an amazing story.

“…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

Life hasn't been easy for Bree and Declan. Declan sees beautiful things in her, which she doesn't see. Suffering from PTSD and panic attacks is consuming her life. Declan is good for her but will she let him in?

Overall I enjoyed this book from first-time author S Ferguson. It is full of anxiety, pain, and so many emotions that it will definitely take the reader on a journey.

Bree Sutton has never known real love, and it's made her numb. Her mother was a witch to her, and the man she thought loved her, shattered her completely. Now she just works, and goes to a lonely park bench everyday. She believes in what's left of her heart that she doesn't deserve better, and that happy endings aren't for her. Declan James came from a horrific childhood, so he recognizes serious pain when he sees it. And he sees it in spades when he meets the gorgeous Bree, so he's made it a mi ...more

S. Ferguson gives us a beautiful debut story. I would have never known this was a debut novel. Ferguson tells a wonderful story of Bree finding strength after a life of people beating her down.

Declan is the most perfect guy! I've never really swooned over a book guy before but he was just…. Perfection! He knew just what to do for Bree to help her but to let her keep herself and to grow. The main thing I loved about this book is that it isn't just a love story, it's a book about finding yourself

A very promising Debut Novel.

Very emotional, with all the great ingredients: Bree, an absolutely broken heroine, who is just breathing but not “living”, and Declan, a man with a tragic past too, who sees through her walls, well… who really SEES her, and then we have this criminal background with its own dangers lurking…

This is sad, sometimes dark, raw but also warm, sexy and even with some funny moments.

I may have felt sometimes that some big events

Bree and her unknown strength

Bree seems totally broken. She comes from a broken home and an abusive mother who makes it clear to Bree that she never wanted her. Her mother told her that her father died when she was young. After years of abuse, Bree has the opportunity to run away with her friend Alex.

The two set out on their own but they are young, no where to live, no jobs, money or food and then Alex leaves her at a bar with the owner who takes Bree, feeds her, gives her a job and a place to

I just needed someone to show me what love was. I needed someone to fight for me, to show me that I was worth something, anything.

Bree's journey is about learning to work through all the negativeness of her life and realize she is worthy and can be loved. Bree was raised by an abusive single mother which scars her physically and emotionally. Declan and Bree end up working together as bartenders. Declan has had a rough past too. He sees the pain that Bree is trying to hide. Slowly Decl
