Reviews Between Me and You

  • Melissa
    *2.75 stars*Between me and you, this started out on a promising note, but somewhere around the halfway mark, my feelings started to wane—big time.Allison Winn Scotch delivers a dose of reality with Ben and Tatum’s relationship—no matter how intoxicating things starts off, nothing is ever perfect. There are some moments of brilliance sprinkled throughout the pages and plenty of passages I found myself eating up, but unfortunately the things ...

    I was fortunate enough to get an early reader copy of this from the author. I just finished it and this is clearly Allison's best book to date. It's an ambitious premise--tell the same story from two perspectives, the story of a marriage--but start one timeline today and work backwards, and the other at the beginning and go forwards. This could so easily have ended up with too many retellings of the same events, and no surprises, but that's not w...

    Read this review on Julie's BookshelfCan I say that I am disappointed, but also mildly satisfied? I appreciate Allison Winn Scotch writing of real life, a real relationship and the hardships that can be faced. This was the draw for me and while Between Me and You started off promising, it lost momentum and became shaky; bringing about a few snags.Written from the dual perspectives of Ben Livingston, a privileged writer from New York, and Tatum Co...

    Thanks to the author, the publisher and NetGalley for a free electronic ARC of this novel, received in exchange for an honest review. “Between Me and You” by Allison Winn Scotch is a love story, if I had to sum it up. It centres on Ben and Tatum, a power couple in Hollywood (he- a screenwriter, she- an actress) who seemingly have it all. This novel chronicles their lives from the time they meet until present day, detailing their daily challen...

    The structure of this is ambitious and at first glance you may think it sounds confusing but I didn’t find it to be too hard to follow. It alternates with one chapter told from Ben beginning in 2016 and working it’s way backwards to 1999 when him and Tatum first meet then her chapters are told in chronological order. There are no big surprises since you know from the very start that where they are today is nowhere near that young, happy go lu...

    As we kick off the early launch of my new book (be on the lookout for Goodreads galley giveaways), out January 9th, I wanted to share a bit about both it and the process of writing it. It was the hardest, most ambitious thing I've ever done, and there were plenty of times when it would have been easier to abandon it. But I was intent on exploring the idea of rewinding the history of our relationships - how time and life skew the innocence and joy...

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review3 starsI have long been a fan of Winn Scotch which is why I was very excited to read Between Me and You. However, this one just didn’t “do” it for me the way her other books have. I was pretty into the story until about the 45-50% mark and then it became repetitive and I found myself losing interest. The story is told in alternative POV and Ben is narrating the story backwa...

    When Ben Livingston and Tatum Connelly meet, they are both dreaming of success in Hollywood--Ben as a scriptwriter and Tatum as an actress. It's Ben who hits it big first, becoming Hollywood's It Guy and a Sundance favorite. But over time, his star slowly fades while Tatum rises to a stardom neither could have ever fully imagined. Along the way, the two wed, have a son, and experience a variety of ups and downs in their marriage. This includes se...

    When I first heard about the premise of Between Me and You, I immediately thought of The Last Five Years , which is one of my favorite musicals. It’s about a couple who tell their story in two different time frames….one is in chronological order and one is going backwards in time (kind of like in Memento). I had to wonder how this concept could be pulled off in a book. Allison Winn Scotch did it flawlessly, so I was surprised to find out that...
