Title: Between Here and the Horizon
Author: Callie Hart
That is how to start a book! First chapter absolutely sucked me in!
I read through over 60% of the book in one big binge and couldn’t wait to go back in for more.
I love Ophelia, her relationship with Rose, Sully and the kids is amazing! She is very well grounded, and her confusion, lust, indifference and every other feeling you can imagine feels genuine and honest. She could be you, or she could be your neighbour.
The men in this book are a little less like anyone I’ve ever met before. But then I’ve never lived on a tiny island, or spend time with many military men. They are fantastic; deep, honest (let’s be fair a bit too honest some times, cocky and arrogant. Everything you like in your run away bad boy.
The connection between them is immense, almost palpable through the book. A twisting, turning tornado of lust slowly changing and dissipating into loss or love.
An amazingly written book that grabs you at page one and doesn’t let you go til the very end of the last page. This was my first Callie Hart book, I can’t wait to see what’s next 🙂
“You think you know me. You think you want to know me. But trust me, Miss Lang. Pursuing me will be the worst mistake you ever make. I’m broken beyond repair…
…and I take great pleasure in breaking everyone else around me.”
Ophelia Lang needs money, and she needs it bad. Her parent’s restaurant is going under, and ever since she lost her job teaching third grade elementary, scraping enough cash together to pay the bills has proven almost impossible. Her parents are on the brink of losing their home. The vultures are circling overhead. So when Ophelia is offered an interview for a well-paid private tutoring gig in New York, how can she possibly say no?
Ronan Fletcher is far from the overweight, balding businessman Ophelia expected him to be. He’s young, handsome, and wealthy beyond all reason. He’s also perhaps the coldest, rudest person she’s ever met, and has a mean streak in him a mile and a half wide. A hundred grand is a lot of money, however, and if tolerating his frosty temperament, his erratic mood swings and whatever else he throws at her means she’ll get paid, then that is what Ophelia will do.
Her new boss is keeping secrets, though. Awful, terrible secrets.
The ghosts of Ronan Fletcher’s past are about to turn Ophelia’s future upside down, and she can’t even see it coming.
