Love at first sight strikes Seattle Scientist Finnegan Kane at the worst possible moment, paralyzing him as he’s pitching his cutting-edge idea to powerful New York venture capitalist Emanuela Monroe… Finn survived the crash that killed his parents when he was sixteen. Twenty years later, his smart devices are about to redefine what it means to be disabled. Emanuela makes dreams come true for a living, but still longs to fulfill her own. Despite Finn's stunning secret, she thinks his idea might be worth the risk...and he’s determined to show her that he is, too.

Between You and Me is an engaging story not only about love but overcoming obstacles and disabilities, letting your creativity roam free and doing the best you can in the world.

What initially drew me to this book was that the plot. It was not as formulaic as romance novel storylines can be. I could tell that the author really researched for this novel, and I managed to learn a bit about prosthetics, the human anatomy, and science in general.

Emmanuela and Finn seemingly fell in love at first sight. Finn got tongue-tied when he first met her and Emmanuela’s attraction to him was supposed to be instant. While I didn’t necessarily FEEL their attraction, I know it was there and they seemed to have good chemistry. There was a decent build up and exploration of their relationship, especially with the long distance struggle with both of them living in different cities.  I liked the book, though I have admit I didn’t love it. I think there was a bit more telling than showing; and you know how much I love to feel the character’s journey. That, and, I am of firm belief that a romance novel needs at least a little bit of good conflict before the story is wrapped up in a bow. There was a bit of that but you know that I am high on the dramatics when it comes to my romance novels. Ha!

Between You and Me was a good read with a distinctive storyline and a small peek into the world of science and prosthetics. If I had a little bit more of a geeky side, I think I may have appreciated this even more. 🙂

This is the first book by Lynn Turner and a solid debut. I will be checking more from this author in the future.
