Review - Between Us

Between Us
by Ella Fox

His lifestyle.  His rules.
Is she willing to risk her heart to play his game?
Guitarist Cole Hayes learned early that falling in love is the easiest way to lose.  Determined never to go down that road, he sealed his heart off, numbing himself with erotic and sensual pleasures--with men and women alike. The rules were simple:  group sex only and never one-on-one.
It’s all so simple until he meets Devon Bannister, the beautiful director shooting the documentary on his band.  Suddenly, she's all he can think about. Neither can deny the attraction and desire between them.

Although Devon is open to exploring Cole's lifestyle, for the first time in his life, he finds himself reluctant to share.
How can he own all of her, if he's only willing to give half of himself?

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I must be in the minority here because after seeing all the 5 & 4 star reviews and reading the blurb, I was expecting to love Between Us, but in reality I didn't. I can't put my finger on exactly what didn't work for me when I've enjoyed many similar books, but I think it had something to do with the tone of the book which just seemed kinda awkward at times and a little forced.

Now before you start thinking this review is going to be all negative, let me assure you it isn't. I loved the concept - it makes a refreshing change to read about an openly bisexual male lead. I found the idea of a three personal relationship intriguing and appreciated Cole's dominance with both women and men. 

I respected Devon's willingness to accept Cole on face value (Devon is a girl btw). She doesn't try to change him but rather hopes things will work themselves out in the best way for everybody.

The flirty banter is fun and I liked the camaraderie between the band members and also between their girlfriends. I loved Grams! 

The sex scenes are naughty and frequent so be prepared to blush! I did keep expecting something bad to happen with a certain other person, so wasn't expecting the resolution as exactly as it happened - it's always nice to be surprised.

I liked the overall plot, but from the beginning I found the dialogue and character POVs a little off. Certain things Cole and Devon said seemed odd and I wasn't convinced people actually speak or think as they do. One of Cole's conversations with Flynn felt awkward when it really shouldn't have. This could be partly explained by my reading a non finalised proof and also perhaps I'm more of a stuffy Brit than imagined, but I think some of this was down to the style which, alas, wasn't entirely for me. All of this being said I really do want to know what happens next with Tyson and to see if he can find his forever person...

2.5 Stars in my Sky!
