**DISCLAIMER** I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review!

This was hands-down one of the best self-published books I've read in a really long time. Grammatically it was perfect. The formatting was flawless and overall it was just a very "clean" book. Reading it was easy and quick.

The relationship between Sophie and Sam was written very well. It progressed at a nice easy believable pace. The chemistry between them was great and really hot at times! However, there didn't seem to be any tension or problems between them. I, for one, like to read romance because of the relationship between the hero and heroine and because I like to see what obstacles they have to overcome. I also like to wonder (even though the outcome is usually the same) if they will in fact overcome their issues and be together. I didn't feel like I got that from Sophie and Sam. Sure, they had a few little spats here and there, but it wasn't anything major. It wasn't anything that made me fear for their happily ever after. And if I don't fear for it, I don't root for it. Don't get me wrong, I liked Sophie and Sam a lot and I'm thrilled that they ended up together forever, but I felt it just came too easily for them.

The relationship between Sophie's sister, Evie and her husband, Christian, though, that was fantastic! I was more emotionally involved in Evie and Christian's story than I was in Sophie and Sam's. The real life issues Evie and Christian had to face were so believable and really tugged at the heart strings. I honestly feel as though Evie & Christian could have their own full-length story. They were wonderfully written, vibrant characters.

I did have two small issues with this book: (MILD SPOILERS AHEAD)

I received a copy of Somewhere Between Black and White in exchange for an honest review.

Sophie is a single teacher who sees a man in a convenience store and feels an instant attraction to him. Her second encounter with him is a chance meeting and a short conversation in a grocery store. Third time is a charm though, because she discovers that Sam too is a teacher, and happens to work at the same school as she does. They begin spending time together and with their first shared kiss, Sophie can't help but feel that she's known Sam for longer than since that first meeting.

In addition to this being Sophie and Sam's story, her sister Evie and husband Christian have a strong presence. Their relationship is far from perfect, which Sophie is usually the first to point out, but as Sophie's relationship grows with Sam, she learns that true love can mean different things to different people and that it's up to each person to find their own path to happiness.

I enjoyed the story. Being on the short side, it was a pretty fast read. When I started reading it, I didn't expect it to have a deep meaning, so I was pleasantly surprised by it.

A little background first. I first read this book in 2014. I did not like the main character Sophie and a lot of other things in the book. I have no idea where I was coming from. With my spiritual beliefs, etc. this should have been right up my alley but I will be the first to admit that I totally missed the point. I have no idea where my head was. If I did drugs I would think that was the answer but I don't, so it is still a puzzle to me. I recently talked with a friend that had read the book and she shared some of her observations. It was just so far out from my first review that I thought I would read the story again and try and keep an open mind and see where it led me. I'm glad I did. this time, I GOT IT.

The story is about Sophie. She is the youngest daughter, a sister has lupus and a husband that Sophie doesn't think is nearly good enough or supportive enough of her sister. She doesn't hesitate to let her thoughts and feelings be known. Even though the sister has asked her many times to keep her thoughts to herself and let her live her own life, she keeps at it. Sophie is a lot like most of us today. always putting herself in a position of deciding how others should live their lives. And then there are the every day judgments that are made on the bad kid in the neighborhood, the rude driver, etc. Sophie is a pretty tough cookie. Not a very happy one but content in the knowledge that she has most of the answers to everything.

And then she meets Sam. Sam is a gentle soul, a live and let live type of guy. he has compassion and understanding. He tries to see the good in everyone and not judge rude behavior or violent actions. He has a very Zen quality about him.

****The author provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****

This book centers on Sophie and the people in her life, her sister Evelyn, brother-in-law Christian, new boyfriend Sam and her students. Sophie has always seen things in black and white; she judges people and has no problem voicing her opinion. When she meets Sam who sees things in shades of gray, her thinking begins to change and so do her relationships. I liked this book and the message it was trying to get across, the characters were interesting and well rounded. I did have some problems with the flashbacks that Sophie and Sam kept having, I understand why the author included them, I just thought they were unnecessary and didn't add anything to the story. Beyond that this was a sweet wholesome read, there were not any explicit love scenes, instead the focus was on the emotional connection between people.
