this story and wasn t disappointed Theo was a bit of a persnickety oddball right from the start, but I immediately loved him, though, I think his overall strangeness could ve been pumped up a few notches And his dyspraxia was rarely even touched upon in the story, actually But Luca was the MC that I connected most closely with in the book, though Yes, he could be a bit of a standoffish, broody prick at times, but right from the get go, you could see that he had a heart of gold and a lightness about him that drew others into his orbit Luca was a bit like Finn from Perfect Day , now that I think about it The guys for sure didn t start out on the right footing with one another, but I loved seeing them spend time together and get to know one another better, until they finally gave in to the immediate attraction that they d both felt The book had a few angsty, dramatic moments, but I felt that it never crossed the line into unrealistic territory Both MC s had their issues, which they worked through Slowly And sometimes painfully But they did the work, especially Theo, and came out the other side better off for confronting their fears Hey, you okayHe wasn t really The song, and his startling revelation, had left him feeling raw and unbalanced Rash.Which was probably why he said, I wish I could have that, you know That kind of love With you In regards to steam, there was some, but not so much as to feel gratuitous For me, the frequency of the sexy times hit the Goldilocks zone pretty dead on The resolution for the problem with the sale of the hotel, Luca s childhood home and family legacy, went almost exactly as I d predicted, although I didn t care Not one bit.But guys, JOSH FINN S WEDDING Christ, I normally loathe Big Gay Wedding plots in stories, but this one was seriously amazing and heart felt.Pro Tip When they mention the title and artist of The Song in the book, stop and watch the YouTube video and really listen to the lyrics, then continue reading All the feels, people ALL of them Purrrr fection.Aaaaand that s probably the first and last time you ll ever hear me gushing about a storybook wedding, but this one was extremely non Disney esque, so some major points there This second book in the New Milton universe was not based upon a Jane Austen book, so we blessedly weren t forced to endure the repeated chase and run away scenario seen in Perfect Day Praise the Lawd The book worked perfectly fine as a standalone, with very little exposure to the characters from the first book except for the very touching wedding scene, which was a huge highlight of this story for me.In regards to pacing and length, there were a few times when events were a bit slow, and the story felt a bit long, but I never got bored and lost interest I simply wanted to get to the next bit of excitement.I d rate this book at around 4.25 stars and recommend it to anyone who enjoys some drama and steam, but not an overabundance My ARC copy of the book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a fair, unbiased review.See All My Latest Reads Review Quick Links (((Download Pdf))) ☠ Between the Lines ↚ Theo Wishart has given up on

read as a standalone It s so well written with well developed characters characters with depth and a satisfying read for me I didn t rate it five stars because I wanted to see that wedding Overall, loved it and hope you enjoy it as well 3.5 stars Between the Lines was my first book by Sally Malcolm, but it certainly won t be the last well, mostly because I already own two of her other books I m

wasn t at all surprised to find out later that the author has a personal connection to that condition I wanted everndetails about Theo s dyspraxia and how it affects him, but I was still really pleased with how it was portrayed.I also really enjoyed the writing, which felt easy and not forced I could see myself falling head over heels for one of this author s stories because of her fluid and straightforward writing style However, some aspects of the story bothered me The relationship veered a little too close to instalove for my tastes, if I m being honest I don t like when we get intimacy and feelings too early in the story, and I felt like the I love yous were far too fast They went from fondness to everlasting love in a blink, and even though I know that s possible in real life, I don t like it in my romance It wasn t quite instalove, but it was nearly there for me I also thought that Theo put himself out there WAYthan Luca I wantedgrovelling from Luca,vulnerability from him His stubbornness was a bit of a turnoff, and though I loved Theo and thought that he put his heart on the linethan once, I didn t love how he took all the chances Overall, I thought that Between the Lines was a very nice summer romance, and I can see why it s a hit with readers Super excited to see what else this author has to offer Copy provided in exchange for an honest review

Seriously, who and where in the hell did this Sally Malcolm person come from She s gone 3 for 3 It s her penchant for the enemies to lovers trope and the masterful way she builds tension that appeals but the way she wields words to craft characters and create the atmosphere of this sleepy little Long Island town that hits my feels with laser like precision every time that s landed her on my auto author list with lightening speed.This time we have Luca and Theo Luca is kind of a beach bum who bounces around the country with his surfboard never far away He s the ultimate rolling stone On the surface Underneath that feckless exterior lies hidden depths and a broken heart.Theo is driven, no nonsense and comes across a bit sanctimonious He s posh and buttoned up But underneath lies the heart of a romantic.I liked both of them but I really loved Theo for too many reasons to count.Their journey from enemies to lovers is one I ll not soon forget and will likely have to reread for the comfort of not just Theo and Luca but New Milton New Milton is hard to resist The town is charming and I love catching up with its inhabitants I can t wait to see who ll be next to fall in love in this series and get on the Sally Malcolm Express to Feelstown again Speaking of, you could technically read this one as a stand alone but I d recommend at least reading Perfect Day beforehand as Finn and Josh have a fairly significant role here.Recommend to readers who enjoy enemies to loves, loads of tension, don t mind a little miscommunication and maybe are a card carrying member of the Squishy Marshmallow Club 3.5 stars I had a hard time rating this one I struggled a lot because, although I really enjoyed the story, my complaints were too many for me to round up In any case,Between the Lines proves that Sally Malcolm is a new a force to be reckoned with in MM, and an author I m definitely interested in.The writing is absolutely beautiful I like the dialogue but I love the prose Not flowery but not too sharp either, just very evocative Perfect for this type of slow burning, sweet romance I usu 3.5 stars I had a hard time rating this one I struggled a lot because, although I

definitely interested in.The writing is absolutely beautiful I like the dialogue but I love the prose Not flowery but not too sharp either, just very evocative Perfect for this type of slow burning, sweet romance I usually get so bored with inner monologues but the words just flowed here.I have all the love for Theo What a sweet, kind hearted and caring person Because of his dyspraxia, Theo struggles with a lot of everyday stuff This makes it very hard to connect and read other people Luca was harder to like but I loved how protective and sweet he was to Theo.The epilogue was perfect and necessary to the story Extra points for Josh and Finn s cameo appearance So, what didn t work For starters, this felt a little bit insta lovey I mean it had only been nine days before theI love you scame For me it s just too little time for all these feelings to develop and for Theo to make his grand gesture The epilogue, though, made it a little better.Speaking of which I felt that Luca should have been the one to reach out and even grovel He was awful to Theo but he did nothing to make things right, not even after he learnt the truth about the way things happened.Another thing that frustrated me was the amount of miscommunication between the characters The fight in the end could have been avoided in my opinion, if only the characters had been willing to talk instead of interrupting each other and jumping to conclusions.Last but not least, Jude I rarely base my rating and review on how secondary characters behave but this was important to the story So MANY hurt feelings between Luca and his mother Nothing was resolved in my opinion They didn t really talk about the core of the problem, Jude just defended her love for Don and Luca just forgave her And as much as I love flawed characters, I draw the line at mothers who put their homophobic husbands above their kids I know I m kinda opinionated about this but it s just how I am.I realize I sound like I have a lot of niggles, but I still recommend this book to all MM readers and I sure hope there arebooks to come in this universe This was super sweet, but honestly, felt like it was too short Feels like something between a full length novel and novella and that just didn t quite sit with me after some reflection.Butengaging enough to keep me reading late In other words, still recommend. 4.5 stars

t get the right feeling what the actual story is So I will try to sum it up Luca has left home because his mother decided to marry a homophobic guy He should have inherited the family hotel Majestic but doesn t want it any It s anyhow on the verge of ruin That s where Theo comes in His father s company wants to buy the hotel and turn it into something modern So in the beginning Theo is basically Luca s enemy However, Theo is forced to make a deal to stay two weeks in order to understand the beauty of the hotel better as it is And he spends a lot of time with Luca during those two weeks and of course they both fall in love very beautifully The characters are both very well developed Luca is resentful and scared of loving anyone perfectly understandable concerning his past Theo has dyspraxia, meaning his motoric coordination is not that good and he has a hard time reading people He is a romantic at heart but has given up on ever finding love until Luca I loved the Romance yeah, capital R in this book Just a tiny example Theo cannot dance and is scared of making a fool of himself At a wedding Luca just dances with him anyhow and that was so emotional for me Another great thing is that even if there are conflicts what family doesn t know conflicts there are no outright bad people Even the homophobic partner of Luca s mother is not that bad And that is quite an achievement because some good people have prejudices and it is hard to overcome them I found that very realistic All in all, I was very happy about the book and I recommend it to those who want a fluffy and sweet readARC kindly provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review 3.5 starsThis story was about 2 guys 1 who never thought he d have an HEA and the other who

father would allow that to happen.And while I don t mind instalove, these 2 just didn t spend a lot of time together and I never truly felt their connection Yet I still enjoyed the story and would recommend it to anyone who likes a straightforward romance with fairly low angst.ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley
