Synopsis:

After a life full of cruelty, Bree is left with no one to turn to—except him.
Declan, who's suffered his own fair share of tragedy, sees the girl on the park bench with the sad eyes and Converse shoes as a kindred spirit —and a chance to redeem himself. He couldn't save his mother. Maybe he can save her.
But is Bree too broken to let him in?
Declan may be her only hope for solace, if he's strong enough to break down her walls. Will she risk letting him in ... or let her pain consume her?
This book is intended for readers 18 and older. It contains violence and references of rape and child abuse

My Review:

 I'm still in awe that Something There in Between is S. Ferguson's debut novel, this story grabbed me from the beginning and it practically made it impossible to want to walk away from. This is not an easy read, the references of rape and child abuse, insecurities and self blame are written to the point where I felt the emotions, my heart ached, my protective shield wanted to jump into the story slap characters around.

     In this story we have Bree, raised by a mother that only saw her as a burden and took her anger out on Bree leaving the scars of verbal and physical abuse . Her only chance is to runaway at 16 years of age with the first boy she falls in love with, they live life on the streets and then find themselves working for a man who is well known in the community and who is feared by others. He provides them with a place to stay and a job, leaving the reader to wonder what are his intentions? Bree's boyfriend not only breaks her heart, he leaves her with such a feeling of insecurities and self doubt she believes the only connection she deserves is through sex  and with who ever is willing. Will Bree ever be able accept help from others and feel deserving of love?

     Declan, just writing his name makes me smile. He has a past that he has worked through and he sees the same familiar sadness and pain in Bree and wants to be the one to help and protect her. Declan and his brother work for Ron the owner of the bar, Declan's brother is one of the muscles in the group of men Ron keeps near by. Declan works behind the bar with Bree and soon he hopes that is the opening he needs to get close to her. Bree soon becomes all he can think about and the closeness may be just to much for both of them to resist, their chemistry is hot. Will their time together be all they need to break down the walls that Bree has built up to protect her from herself, her past and future pain? 

     I highly recommend Something There in Between, it has the drama, suspense, sexual passion, surprises and emotions I enjoy in a really good book. S. Ferguson you did an amazing job with capturing the story line, characters and keeping the readers engaged. I look forward to your next book. 5 star must read!

Excerpt:

That does it for me.
The idea that someone is hurting her causes a rage I’ve only ever felt once before in my life to flow through my entire body. I clench my fists and decide now is the moment I confront her. Is there another asshole bothering her now? Did her douchebag ex make an appearance? I will fucking end whoever did this to her. I know without asking that Jake would have my back on that move. I’d be willing to bet money Ron would as well. It takes every ounce of strength I have, but I wait until the night is a little closer to being over before snatching her arm and pulling her through the doorway into the dark kitchen. I spin her around to the wall beside the doorway, leaning down so we’re face to face, eye to eye.
“You’re gonna tell me what the fuck is going on, and you’re gonna tell me right the fuck now. Is someone hurting you? Why are your knuckles all bruised? You been fighting?” I fire off everything at once, realizing I sound like a nagging girlfriend, but I need to know she’s okay. I NEED to get this off my chest.
Bree sighs deeply, her warm breath fanning across my neck, making me aware of our proximity. I have her pinned to the wall, my left hand is still gripping her shoulder, and my right hand is on the wall above her head. I’m being a bastard, and using my size to cage her in. I watch her closely for signs of fear, but she almost looks bored, and mostly just annoyed. I know she can still refuse to answer, but I’ll be damned if she gets away from me until I have my say.
She raises her eyes to give me an angry glare and I feel my dick twitch. Seeing fire in her eyes as opposed to the sadness they always carry makes her ten times hotter. Fuck, I’m an asshole. Something is seriously wrong with her, and I’m standing here getting turned on.
“I’ve just had a lot on my mind. I’ve been…training. You know exercising and punching a bag. That’s why my knuckles are bruised.” She raises an eyebrow at me, daring me to question her more. I smirk down at her…she has no idea who she’s messing with.
“You need to wear gloves then. You’re going to ruin your beautiful hands. You’re not actually sparring are you? ”I ask, my voice deeper than I intended. I’ve never been this close to her before, and my dick is currently trying to punch its way out of my zipper to reach her.
She glances down, and I have a moment of horror when I realize there is no way she’s going to miss my erection. I’m a healthy boy, and my jeans were already on the tight side. Her breath hitches, and she jerks her eyes back up to meet mine.
When I see the heat in her eyes, I swear I almost come in my pants like a teenager. Bree is fucking turned on by me. I can work with this. Letting go of her shoulder, I put my hand on the wall, completely closing her in, and lower my head towards hers.
“I don’t fool around with Ron’s guys,” she says softly, making no move to avoid my quickly approaching lips.
“Good thing I’m not one then,” I say, my mouth forming a smirk. I’m now so close to her lips I can feel their warmth on my own.
“YO BREE, where ya at?” I hear Jake yell from outside the door. His voice is like a splash of cold water, causing me to jerk back, and the moment is gone.
“My brother is an asshole,” I grumble, lowering my hands to adjust my erection, and backing further away from her.
“Your brother just stopped me from making a stupid mistake,” she says, before walking out of the door.
