Between Me and You is the seventh book from Allison Winn Scotch (you can read my review of her sixth book In Twenty Years here). I enjoyed In Twenty Years and I really like Allison’s writing style so I’m eager to read her latest one. It sounds like Between Me and You will feature different perspectives like In Twenty Years did. Here’s the official synopsis from Allison’s site:
When their paths first cross, Ben Livingston is a fledgling screenwriter on the brink of success; Tatum Connelly is a struggling actress tending bar in a New York City dive. They fall in love, they marry, they become parents, and they think only of the future. But as the years go by, Tatum’s stardom rises while Ben’s fades. In a marriage that bears the fallout of ambition and fame, Ben and Tatum are at a crossroads. Now all they can do is think back…
A life of passion, joy, tragedy, and loss—once shared—becomes one as shifting and unpredictable as a memory. As the pieces of their past come together, as they explore the ways love can bend and break, Ben and Tatum come to see how it all went wrong—and wonder what they can do now to make it all right.
Also, it states one character is one rewinding history while the other moving it forward so very curious how that will play out and what twists there will be along the way.
Before I dive in, let’s first consider the title, Between Me and You, so most relationships and marriages have plenty of secrets that they don’t share with others, not saying it’s always something scandalous, but still there are things just between a couple. I wonder if it will be something major, even tragic, that they only share and it draws them apart or is it something with the successful career that outside people don’t know about it.
Or is Between Me and You just simply a catchy title?
Once I finish the book, I’ll be sure to post a review and book club questions. Stay tuned!
