This is a tough book to rate, folks. It has a ton of GREAT stuff going for it. So, I suppose I’ll just start there. Here’s what I loved:

1. I love that this is a multicultural romance, and a romance with a disabled hero, and neither the fact that it’s a multicultural romance or the fact that the hero’s disabled is a conflict in the story. That was refreshing.

2. This is a well-written story. The descriptions of New Orleans we

If you're interested in a fresh spin of love-at-first-sight, real-life contemporary romance, "Between You and Me" is for you! Miss Lynn Turner combines her love of storytelling, travel, and technology, and introduces us to Emanuela and Finn - two innovative people, who won't let distance or work stop them from being together.

I enjoyed reading about Emanuela and Finn's journey. It was great to explore their backstories, work life, and passions. Each character is strong, but vulnerable at times.

Lush descriptions of place and experiences make Between You and Me a feast for the senses beyond the 'love at first sight' connection of a scientist and a businesswoman.

Dr. Finnegan Kane has an innovative idea for prosthetics and he has the opportunity to make his case to successful venture capitalist, Emanuela Monroe. But more than a 'smart prosthesis' gets pitched that night when they stare into each other's eyes and see the future... and then run to opposite ends of the country terrified and

How absolutely refreshing! I couldn't put this book down. Lynn Turner has definitely garnered a fan in me. This was a witty, touching, nuanced, and very sexy read! The chemistry burned hot between Finn and Emanuela from start to finish. Romance novels are as old as time, but this story was different. I loved that it was not in the realm of clichés. Many stories I've read are usually so formulaic, but this novel is an exception. The characters felt real, their experiences and emotions were relata ...more
The author was kind enough to send me a copy of this book, which intrigued me because it featured a scientist/amputee as a hero, and a venture capitalist Latina heroine. But I only ended up reading the first third.

Seattle-based Dr. Finn Kane has been struggling to find financial backers for the new type of prosthetic, one integrated into a patient's own neuro-system. He falls into love at first sight with Chicagoan Emanuela Monroe during a party he'd crashed to meet with potential backers. Emanu

Finn and Emmanuela envelop you in their sincere love and grab ahold of you from the start. If I had to find one defining factor in this story the word I would choose is passion. Passion is not only the driving force between Finn and Emmanuela, but also at the core of their individual and professional lives. It is such a reward to follow these characters as they fall in love with one another, with each other's work, and with each other's friends.

I really enjoyed this book! It took me a few days to figure out how to rate it because it doesn't follow the typical romance format, but to me that was refreshing.

Here's what I liked:

1. Black heroine! (sorry I'm not sorry)

I've never read a book with a heroine who embodied beauty, success (no billionaire bad boy here, she's wealthier than him and it's an interesting dynamic), intelligence, and confidence, but yet she struggled to let herself be vulnerable and fall in love be

Between You and Me is a sweet, sexy, wonderfully substantive romance. Dr. Finnegan Kane (Finn) needs funding for his innovative prosthetic limb invention. When he approaches Emanuela Monroe, VC extraordinaire, he was so sure he'd make a mess of things. But, they made a connection, and she saw depth in his idea. So when his proposal crossed her desk months later, it was fate's way of putting the two together. Now it's just up to them to make it work. But, how can they when he's in Seattle and she ...more

Been craving Turner's words since reading Pas de Deux and Between You and Me has been calling for me to read it ever since. It was different from Pas De Deux but still intriguing and a page turner.

I loved how it was diverse in so many ways! I especially enjoyed the power reverse with Em being the one to make Finn's dreams come true and the challenges that come from long distance relationships.

I also adored Em and Finn, their friends and all of their interactions. But, my favourite thing about t

Gave me all the feels!

Well it seems I have a new book couple! Emanuela and Finn are perfect. I love the fact that they were an interracial couple and not once did the story have any drama concerning that. He was a disabled hero with a heart of gold and full of love for her. She was a very smart, beautiful attractive heroine who knew her stuff. Both educated and just flat out perfect!! Love, love, love it so much!!

Between You and Me is a story that follows a well-known, almost typical, romance plot line. When I first started reading I was bombarded by déjà vu after déjà vu, but I still enjoyed it!

Why? Let me tell you why:

1. DIVERSITY. I love books with a diverse cast, and thankfully, BYaM didn’t disappoint. The fact that this is a multicultural story and follows a disabled character had me smiling from the very beginning! And extra points for not making it an issue book, but instead focusing on Finn as a

This book was amazing from beginning to end. The love story was magical. I loved that from the beginning this was never about an interracial couple, or a man that had a disability. From the moment that they met it was always about them. I will say that it was incredible. Considering that I understand first-hand how Finn feels. I am also a below the knee amputee. I can totally relate to Finn. I lost my leg when I was a young adult just beginning my life. This is the first story that I have read w ...more

What can I say? I was rooting for Emmi and Finn from the get go, and who wouldn't? Though their relationship was a case of love at first sight, it was definitely a meeting of minds, rather than purely a physical attraction - though that was there, of course, and it was hot as hot can be. As their relationship developed, so did their mutual appreciation of the other's body, mind and soul, making it a rounded and believable love story.

Speaking of bodies, this is the first romance I've read (and h

“Between You and Me” is everything you should want in a romance novel. It’s witty and charming, sensual and genuine, nuanced and thought-provoking; a once-in-a-lifetime love story set against a canvas of vivid scenery and engaging, relatable characters. I was drawn in from the very beginning and could not put it down.

The chemistry between Finn and Emanuela is palpable from the first moment they meet, and yet right away it is obvious that there is more to their story than a few sparks followed b

Between You and Me is an engaging story not only about love but overcoming obstacles and disabilities, letting your creativity roam free and doing the best you can in the world.

What initially drew me to this book was that the plot. It was not as formulaic as romance novel storylines can be. I could tell that the author really researched for this novel, and I managed to learn a bit about prosthetics, the human anatomy, and science in general.

There are some interesting aspects in this book, I liked the characters and the descriptions of the different settings (New Orleans, Seattle, New York), but overall it didn’t work for me. Still, the things I find negative are certainly catchy for other readers.

Between You and Me is one of the most sincere love stories I’ve read in quite a while. I was consumed with the characters after the first chapter and forced myself not to read the whole book in one sitting. Finnegan Kane and Emanuela Monroe’s love story is kismet and captivating. From the moment they meet you feel the spark between the two characters. Finn’s work is deeply personal and his passion is undeniable. Emanuela can’t deny that she is taken by the tenacious scientist and she is dedicate ...more

A long-distance romance that’s heartfelt and realistic, Between You and Me starts out with possibly the most detailed and beautifully written description of love at first sight I've ever read. The author did a remarkable job involving all of the senses, and not just in how she described Finn and Emmi’s intense attraction to each other, but also the vivid settings, the mouth-watering food, and the sultry music made me feel like I was experiencing it right along with the characters.

I don't consider myself a very good book reviewer, but I have to say how much I loved Lynn Turner's first book! Finn's & Emanuela's story is one of two people who are passionate about their work. Finn is looking for a company to invest in his life-changing devices & Emanuela works for an investment company. Once they meet, there's a strong attraction between the two & you won't be able to put the book down. Well, I couldn't! A new business venture coupled with a cross-country romance ...more

This story was amazing. Lynn knows how to write a story. I couldn't put this story down if I tried. It literally took me 2 days to read the entire story. Finn and Emanuela are so perfect for each other and their love really had me believing in true love. Their romance felt so real and not as if it just happens in stories. Emanuela's strength as a woman was amazing to read. She's a go getter and that's something women need to see more often. Lynn is definitely a descriptive writer and it was real ...more

"Between You and Me" breaks new ground. It's an amazing, sensual love story, with vivid characters (not just Finn and Emanuela, who are engaging protagonists, but all the supporting characters are delightful and thoughtfully written as well). But what makes "Between You and Me" special and distinctive is that it isn't *just* a love story--it's a story about overcoming disability, with a creative, completely original plot built around surviving tragedy and doing good in the world.

Lynn kindly reached out to me and provided me with a copy of her first book. I read the synopsis and I was definitely interested so I said yes. Between You and Me is a contemporary romance with two characters, Finn and Emmanuela, who have very different backgrounds/lives. It followed the plot line of a typical romance novel which I find lacked a little conflict. There was definitely conflicts in the novel but I find it was very surface level and easily solved.

This was a sweet easy read story. Dr. Finnegan Kane and Emmanuella Morris were so cute together. I just love the description of how they were attracted to each other on their first meeting. The author researched New Orleans well as it was accurately depicted. They battled their way from a long distance romance to their HEA. They were getting older and wanted to begin their life together. Emmi supported Finn in his research and was eager to get his non profit going. They had the support of h

This was a great read...I really enjoyed Finn's personal connection to his business and for me it made it all that more important that his endeavor succeeded.

I really enjoyed the connection that was built between Finn and Emanuela and their bond is one that cannot be broken now that they have fallen in love, and she has made his life mission hers as well.

I would love to see a sequel to this story that includes possible flashbacks to the time-lapse's within the story as I am sure there are littl

I received this book from the author in exchange for my review. Sometimes whirlwind love stories are hard to believe, but this one was not only believable but also made me fall in love with the characters themselves. Finn is the perfect man – smart, handsome, kind, and he loves Emanuela! The only real difficulty in their relationship is the distance between them. The story unfolds around the times the two are able to be together, and I think the fact that they can’t see each other all the time ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Between You and Me. I was so engrossed with the characters I sometimes felt like I was right there with them. Finn and Emanuela drew me into their lives from the beginning. You were rooting for their love story to work out. As a matter of fact I needed it to work out because I was so invested in them.

I loved this story. It was funny, sad, sexy, and flowed so well. I usually prefer stories with a lot of conversation in them rather than a lot of description. I'd rather know more about the characters than what the view looks like where they are eating dinner. But this was so descriptive, and it just added so much to the story. At one point I felt like I was actually in the room watching them tease each other. I kept looking around my room making sure no one could see me leaning closer to my lap ...more
