Between Us: The biggest rom com of 2023: smart, romantic and laugh-out-loud funny from the bestselling author of Last Night and Mad About You
About this deal
References to abortion and abuse are handled with a respectful touch and feel like an organic part of the plot. But drama still follows, in the form of her dysfunctional family and the looming question: what other parts of her now-ex’s show are inspired by real events ?
But when Roisin sees secrets she shared with Joe play out on the TV screen, she knows that between us means nothing at all. Everything I’ve read from her is simply beautiful and keeps me up until the early morning (hence this review at 3am).There’s a kind of unparalleled feeling to picking up a book by an author you love that you know you’re going to enjoy.
When Roisin watches the first episode of Joe’s new show, she’s horrified, hurt and disgusted to see that he’s taken something that she told him in private, and splashed it across for the world to see. I debated giving this book three rather than four stars, but I did absolutely enjoy reading it despite some misgivings.Their relationship might not be perfect, but they can hold this complex love at least, something important when Roisin’s just lost a long-term relationship with now tainted memories.
He’s gone from a hairline like an old tennis ball to a thatch that looks like it’d come running if you shook a packet of Dreamies. She’s one of my absolute favourite authors and each year a new book is a joy – something to look forward to.
The basis of this is that Roisin and Joe are in a relationship and it's not been on the right track for some time, there's just something off that Roisin can't put her finger on. Between Us" entpuppt sich nicht nur als die größte Romantik-Komödie des Jahres 2023, sondern auch als das ideale Geschenk für alle, die sich nach einer herzerwärmenden Lektüre sehnen. Some of the issues I had are definitely based on my particular likes and dislikes so I would still definitely recommend reading this one! When she recognises her own past amongst it, she starts to ask herself just how much of it is true, particularly the cheating which the sex-addict MC (Joe’s self insert) involves himself in. If you're looking for a book that explores healing after a toxic relationship and confronts family issues that revolve around self-growth and women's fiction themes, rather than lighthearted romance, then this book would suit your needs.
Die humorvollen Momente lockern die Handlung auf und bringen den Leser zum Schmunzeln, ohne dabei die emotionale Intensität der Liebesgeschichte zu beeinträchtigen.

They’re all gearing up for a weekend away to celebrate an engagement, a birthday, and the premiere of her boyfriend Joe‘s new show. Over the past year, Roisin has felt Joe pulling away from her and their relationship, but the breaking point comes when she realizes he’s used her painful secrets as a plot line in his show. The problem for me in Between Us is that I think Roisin’s experience with Joe doesn’t really provide a natural segue straight into a new romance.
I love how Mhairi McFarlane always slowly builds up the couple’s rapport in her books, and this one was no exception. We take as gospel truth everything our partners or loved ones tell us, only to have the rug pulled out from under us when we discover that we've been handed the booby prize behind door number 3 in the Game Show of Life. I loved the struggle of keeping a friendship group together, through the decade of being in your twenties and then into your thirties.
