Between Me and You by Allison Winn Scotch

“Life sometimes grants us second chances, and if they should fall upon you, if you should be lucky enough to be offered another chance at happiness, then you’d be a fool not to seize it.” 

A Goodreads Summary…

When their paths first cross, Ben Livingston is a fledgling scriptwriter 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.

 Our Review…

We took off our psychological suspense/thriller genre hats, to read about Ben and Tatum’s heartwarming story. I liked that Allison Winn Scotch made Ben and Tatum seem like everyday people when it came to love, relationships, and parenting even though they became Hollywood stars. Although their Hollywood, “walk of fame” lifestyle was like watching it on film, some parts more relatable to everyday people, their everyday problems like a crying kid, who is walking the dog before he poops on the carpet, work late/babysitting issues, and finally… finding time for each other without losing perspective about why you fell in love in the first place, was highly relateable. You’ll definitely find yourself rooting for Ben and Tatum. It was nice to take a break from the twisty psychotic people we tend to love to read about. Lol
