Welcome to my post for the Everything Between Us book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for a copy of Everything Between Us. But, before we get to all that, allow me to introduce the book:

Everything Between Us
Release date: November 5, 2013
Publisher: Self
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Series: N/A

Daniel’s got everything figured out. He makes a good living as an artist … mostly through offering “private shows” to the wives of local wealthy businessmen. He never stops playing the game and never lets anyone touch his heart. But when his current fling offers him a few hundred an hour for art lessons for her reclusive, college-dropout daughter, Daniel finds himself forgetting his own rules. The girl is rude. Insulting. Incredible.

And she sees straight through him.

Stella is hiding from the world, not because she wants to, but because crippling panic attacks await her every time she tries to live a normal life. She’s determined to push everyone–including her handsome new art teacher—away. But Daniel makes it utterly impossible. The guy is irritating. Mocking. Magnetic.

And makes her want things she knows she can never have.

What starts as a battle of wills turns into passion, where giving in means facing the things that scare them most.


My Rating: 4 Roses

Emotional and romantic, Everything Between Us was a fantastic New Adult read. I really enjoyed reading this lovely book.

Stella was a heroine trapped by her own panic attacks. Whenever she goes out in public, she is crippled with them, and has since decided to stay in her house. She dropped out of her college, moved back into her parents house, and refused to leave the safety of the solitude since then. But, her mother decides that enough is enough and hires an art teacher in the hopes that having some kind of creative expression would help Stella. I liked Stella. She was a strong character despite being trapped by the panic attacks. She starts off as kind of a passive character, but gradually gets stronger. She eventually decides to go to therapy for her panic attacks, go against what her parents want for her in favor of what she wants, and fights for she was wants. I thought she was a great character.

Daniel was also wonderful. He's an artist who trades another service with the rich cougars. That reminded me of Mason from Price of a Kiss (totally love him!), but this situation was different in that Daniel was willingly doing it. Deep down, he was afraid that his talent alone wouldn't stand in the art world, and used the "extra lessons" as a crutch for his career. I have to admit, it was a little weird that Daniel was doing Stella's mom before they got together. Kind of bizarre. But, I could handle it, so it wasn't a bother. Daniel was very sweet. He was very devoted to what he loved, whether it was his art or Stella. I really liked him.

The romance was lovely. Daniel and Stella were very sweet together. They were a perfect match and entirely devoted to each other. And, the chemistry between them was hot. I thought they were wonderful together.

The plot was well paced. I was kept interested the entire through, though I wasn't totally hooked. I enjoyed the story and the ending was perfect.

Everything Between Us was a fantastic New Adult romance. I really enjoyed reading it. Lovers of romance, this is a book you'll want to check out.
