Review by Jen Skewes

Something There in Between is S. Ferguson’s debut novel.  Honestly I cannot believe that this is her first book.  From the moment I read the prologue to the very end I was completely captured by her words, by these beautifully broken characters and the story itself.  It was so well written and it gave me everything that I love in a book.  The emotional moments where your heart hurts for these characters, the moments that you fall in love with them and feel every bit of chemistry between the two of them.   It was emotional, at times a little dark but also just a beautiful story about finding yourself, learning to love yourself and to see that you are worth it. 

Bree is this broken girl who I felt so bad for.  From the moment you read the prologue and see what she has been through you heart just breaks for this poor girl.  Her mother is a monster who she managed to escape from at the age of sixteen.  She ran away with her boyfriend at the time who was the love of her life, the boy she thought was her future, until he left her.  Now she is just barely living.  Going to work every day and when she is not at work sitting on the park bench that she has claimed as hers, just thinking.  In her mind anyone who has left her, did so because she wasn’t worthy of their love.  She has a hard time seeing her own self worth.  She has a brick wall up that no one can break down.  Even the men at the bar she works with look after her and love but her she is just too broken to see it. 

Then there is Declan, the guy who noticed her from afar sitting on her park bench.  From the moment he saw her he knew that she was broken but he also knew that she was someone he needed in his life.  Declan has had a horrible life as well and is broken in his own way.  When his brother gets him a job at the bar he works at, he takes it knowing that the girl who sits on that park bench works there too.  He can see how broken she is but he wants nothing more than to fix her, make her see just how worthy she is.  But will he be able to break down her walls and make her see what just how loved she is?

I really loved this book.  I loved the connection between Bree and Dec.  Despite the way she felt about herself she was still such a strong woman.  She has been through so much but she has survived.  Even if she is just living, she has still managed to fight.  And with Dec she is able to truly open herself up, smile and start to love her life.  Declan is the perfect person for Bree.  On the outside he looks like a complete bad boy, the long hair and tattoos.  But on the inside he is this really sweet and down to earth guy who truly cares for Bree.  I love when you can feel the emotion of the story and I certainly felt it all with this one.  Ms. Ferguson pulled me in from the very beginning and I from that moment I did not want to let go.  Even in the end I wanted so much more of these two characters.

The supporting characters added so much to this story and I cannot wait for their stories.  There were twists and turns and moments that will hurt you.  But seeing what these characters went through and then seeing how much they grew at the end of the story made it all worth it.  I did have one issue with this book and it was something that happened with Declan that I honestly felt was so unnecessary to the story.  But it wasn’t something that took away from the story either.

Something There in Between is a beautiful love story about finding yourself, learning your worth and being able to break down those walls and see just how much you deserved to be loved.  It is an unexpected love story between two broken people.  It is emotional at times but in the end it was worth it.  An amazing debut novel.  I cannot wait for the next one. 


That does it for me.
The idea that someone is hurting her causes a rage I’ve only ever felt once before in my life to flow through my entire body. I clench my fists and decide now is the moment I confront her. Is there another asshole bothering her now? Did her douchebag ex make an appearance? I will fucking end whoever did this to her. I know without asking that Jake would have my back on that move. I’d be willing to bet money Ron would as well. It takes every ounce of strength I have, but I wait until the night is a little closer to being over before snatching her arm and pulling her through the doorway into the dark kitchen. I spin her around to the wall beside the doorway, leaning down so we’re face to face, eye to eye.
“You’re gonna tell me what the fuck is going on, and you’re gonna tell me right the fuck now. Is someone hurting you? Why are your knuckles all bruised? You been fighting?” I fire off everything at once, realizing I sound like a nagging girlfriend, but I need to know she’s okay. I NEED to get this off my chest.
Bree sighs deeply, her warm breath fanning across my neck, making me aware of our proximity. I have her pinned to the wall, my left hand is still gripping her shoulder, and my right hand is on the wall above her head. I’m being a bastard, and using my size to cage her in. I watch her closely for signs of fear, but she almost looks bored, and mostly just annoyed. I know she can still refuse to answer, but I’ll be damned if she gets away from me until I have my say.
She raises her eyes to give me an angry glare and I feel my dick twitch. Seeing fire in her eyes as opposed to the sadness they always carry makes her ten times hotter. Fuck, I’m an asshole. Something is seriously wrong with her, and I’m standing here getting turned on.
“I’ve just had a lot on my mind. I’ve been…training. You know exercising and punching a bag. That’s why my knuckles are bruised.” She raises an eyebrow at me, daring me to question her more. I smirk down at her…she has no idea who she’s messing with.
“You need to wear gloves then. You’re going to ruin your beautiful hands. You’re not actually sparring are you? ”I ask, my voice deeper than I intended. I’ve never been this close to her before, and my dick is currently trying to punch its way out of my zipper to reach her.
She glances down, and I have a moment of horror when I realize there is no way she’s going to miss my erection. I’m a healthy boy, and my jeans were already on the tight side. Her breath hitches, and she jerks her eyes back up to meet mine.
When I see the heat in her eyes, I swear I almost come in my pants like a teenager. Bree is fucking turned on by me. I can work with this. Letting go of her shoulder, I put my hand on the wall, completely closing her in, and lower my head towards hers.
“I don’t fool around with Ron’s guys,” she says softly, making no move to avoid my quickly approaching lips.
“Good thing I’m not one then,” I say, my mouth forming a smirk. I’m now so close to her lips I can feel their warmth on my own.
“YO BREE, where ya at?” I hear Jake yell from outside the door. His voice is like a splash of cold water, causing me to jerk back, and the moment is gone.
“My brother is an asshole,” I grumble, lowering my hands to adjust my erection, and backing further away from her.
“Your brother just stopped me from making a stupid mistake,” she says, before walking out of the door.
