Between You and Me by Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus

Between You and Me

From Goodreads
What happens when you are followed by millions . . . and loved by none? Twenty-seven-year-old Logan Wade is trying to build a life for herself far from her unhappy childhood in Oklahoma. Until she gets the call that her famous cousin needs a new assistant— an offer she can’t refuse.

Logan hasn’t seen Kelsey in person since their parents separated them as kids; in the meantime, Kelsey Wade has grown into Fortune Magazine’s most powerful celebrity. But their reunion is quickly overshadowed by the toxic dynamic between Kelsey and her parents as Logan discovers that, beneath the glossy façade, the wounds that caused them to be wrenched apart so many years ago have insidiously warped into a show-stopping family business.

As Kelsey tries desperately to break away and grasp at a “real” life, beyond the influence of her parents and managers, she makes one catastrophic misstep after another, and Logan must question if their childhood has left them both too broken to succeed. Logan risks everything to hold on, but when Kelsey unravels in the most horribly public way, Logan finds that she will ultimately have to choose between rescuing the girl she has always protected . . . and saving herself.

My review

I was sent this to review via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

After skim reading 79 pages in 40 minutes I've decided that this story has too many characters, not enough plot and is a roller coaster of a ride that I've decided that I'm getting off.

I don't give up on books very often but this isn't for me, sorry Ladies.


  1. Aw Bernie, I hate when this happens but you know when a book isn't for you.

  2. Sadly it's a discipline that I'm not that used to at the moment. I find it hard giving up on a book but I felt I couldn't waste any more time on this one.
