Author: Melissa Toppen
Genre: Contemporary/New Adult/Rocker Romance
Release Date: January 13, 2017
The man who wrecked me; who tore through my life leaving no stone unturned and then simply walked away.
It took me two years to piece my life back together in the aftermath of his storm. Two years and still even the mention of his name causes my chest to constrict.
I hate him. I hate everything about him. I hate how he thinks that he can walk back into my life after all this time and I’m just going to melt at his feet. If he thinks his newly found ROCKSTAR status holds any power over me at all, he couldn’t be more wrong. If anything, it makes me hate him more.
Only I don’t hate him. Not even a little. One smile and the last two years all but vanish.
But I know what loving a man like Gabe Preston will do to a girl. I’ve lived it firsthand. I won’t make the same mistake twice. Not knowing what I know.
He may be used to having all the power, but I’m the one with the secret that will change everything.
*REVIEW FROM LIZ*
A Rockstar and a second chance love story…seriously what is not to love about that? This is what Melissa Toppen gives her readers in Everything In Between.
Gabe Preston is part of the very up and coming band Everything After. After touring the country for nearly two years and hitting it big, they are going home to Georgia to prepare for their next album. However, Gabe bandmates are worried about him. Constant partying and women are affecting his performance. Ready for a break, they head home.
Raelyn Abbott has spent the last two years trying to get over Gabe. Two years ago, they spent a little over a month together in what she thought was blissful happiness. Then he walked away without a word or backward glance. She was left heartbroken and devastated. And with a secret she would guard over everything.
Rae is determined not to make the same mistake twice. She reads the tabloid and magazines and knows Gabe’s reputation with the ladies and parties. But one look at him and her heart says otherwise. Gabe never thought of Rae after he left, until he sees her again. He begins to wonder why he left her behind.
I really enjoyed how the story played out. Rae was so heartbroken after Gabe left, but she worked so hard to build a good steady life. Gabe did not realize how much he was missing out on until he saw Rae again. He wanted to be a good man, the kind of man Rae deserved. But is it too late for them?
This was a story about second chances and learning to trust again. It is not always easy to forgive someone who hurt you. And though it is not an original story, it was well done and kept me interested.
I give Everything In Between by Melissa Toppen 4-stars!
