Because they live in different cities, Finn and Emmi are forced to spend long periods apart and have to get creative to feel close despite the distance. I absolutely loved all of their romantic actions because they were so imaginative and outside the box and balanced out the heartbreaking longing they had to go through during the time they couldn’t see each other. And even though they’re older—and wiser—than your average romance heroes, they maintained a playfulness that was fun to read.
“Between You and Me” is the kind of story that reminds you to appreciate the time you have with your loved ones and it’ll make you want to go out more to get your fill of all those sensual experiences!
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 by a whirlwind, fairy-tale ending. Finn is motivated by a tragedy that left him with a disability to use his passion for science to help others with similar disabilities. Emanuela is a smart, successful, venture capitalist in a position to help make his dream a reality. Neither one imagined they’d find The One in the process. The way they navigate the exhilaration and complexities of their new long-distance romance amidst their professional relationship is organic and nuanced. The supporting characters and the settings (which are indeed characters themselves) in this novel are as captivating as the protagonists. They add a tremendous amount of charm and heart to Finn and Emanuela’s story.
I’m in awe of Lynn Turner’s ability to make the reader feel, to create complex, relatable characters, as well as her ability to transport the reader to the settings in her novel. I could literally smell the salty ocean air, taste the beignets, and envision Finn and Emanuela’s sunrise. That is a quality I find lacking in many stories, but this story took me to places I’ve never been (and even some that I have) and allowed me to experience them through Finn and Emanuela’s eyes.
It was an absolute pleasure to immerse myself in this book. It’s a must-read for anyone who is looking for a genuine, captivating, feel-good romance with a good dose of heart and charm!
Between You and Me
However... This story disappointed me. I just couldn't really get into it. I didn't feel a connection with the heroine; her depiction was so far outside my realm of interest and experience.
I also feel the author should have spend more time on character development. Emmi and Finn weren't two-dimensional, but could have used much more depth. (Maybe if they hadn't spend so much time, as Allie called it, "going at it like rabbits"...)
Which brings me to my biggest gripe: Too. Much. Sex. Yes, yes, I know; I can just skip those parts, and I did. In fact, I actually wanted to give this book 3 stars, due to the gratuitous and explicit sex, but resisted. After all, mine is a very subjective stance.
To sum up, while I applaud Ms. Turner's "normalizing of diversity", I feel this book could have been written so much better.
The setting of Finn and Emanuela’s courtship easily moves through four different locations. Through the characters travels and home bases, I felt as though I was able to take a cross country trip and immerse myself into the scenery and culture of the various locations. Lynn did an incredible job bringing you along for the trip. My mouth watered from the description of the Po’boy!
Lynn Turner is a beautifully descriptive and insightful writer. The readers are privy to the complex intra and inter personal highs and lows every character. I fell in love with all of the characters introduced in the book. I was especially smitten with Finn’s business partner and Morris.
Overall this book is a MUST read! I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed. I cannot wait to see if Lynn follows up this story. These two could have an incredible future. Again, check out this book. Though fiction you can clearly see that Lynn Turner did her research and every moment felt sincere.
