In Between by M.A. Fernandez, a new adult romance. tells the story of a love triangle between Rachel, her fiance Ethan and Tom, a new lawyer at the firm where Rachel works. Rachel’s life seems to be on track. She has a great job and a fiance that she loves – although he is absent a lot due to his job. And then charismatic Tom enters the picture. Rachel is immediately drawn to him, but feels guilty every time she is around him because of Ethan. And yet, she cannot help herself from being drawn into Tom’s seductive web.
Fernandez weaves an intricate story of love, seduction, choices, and how one deals with the choices one has made. It is a story of hope, forgiveness, and redemption. With Rachel, Fernandez has created a character who is real and complicated. She is torn between her faith as an Adventist and her desire to be free to do as she wishes. Torn between her fiance and the world they can build together and her desire for unbridled passion. Rachel represents the woman of today. Women who want it all – the job, the family, and passion.
I would give this novel a five star except for two reasons:
1) it needed a bit more editing – there are some grammar mistakes that should have been easy to spot, but only a few minor ones, nothing that would detract from the story as a whole.
2) Ethan’s POV – I am not sure why Fernandez switched POVs in the story by introducing Ethan’s thoughts. The story was fine without them. It is Rachel’s story, after all. Still, this is but a minor distraction, although a distraction.
