Can a person get a second chance in love? That is something that Matt must find out in this wonderful book. I loved that you have Autumn who never listens to anyone yet is having a hard time in trying to not fall in love with Matt again. Though she keeps saying there is no feeling between them it comes easily when reading about them that they still love each other. Jodi Lynn Copeland did a beautiful job in bringing these characters to life. There was nothing wrong in the book and it was so easy to read. What Lies Between Them grabs your attentions right off the first chapter. Loved it and can't wait for more of this imaginative author.
"You didn't lose me, Matt. You let me go. You walked out when I was ready to spend my life with you."
They were the last words Matt expected to hear out of Autumn's mouth, and the only ones that could stop him in his tracks. They were also lies. No one who cared so deeply could fall into another man's arms days after leaving him behind.
Matt has transcended both Autumn's deception and his humble beginnings. Now a successful, well-respected rancher, he isn't about to fall victim to his dreams of the past and back into her arms. Not even if the fire between them still burns…making his dreams seem more like hopes for the future.
Rekindling an old flame was the last thing on Autumn's mind upon returning to Wyoming after her husband's death. She should hate Matt, who not only broke her teenaged heart but failed to show up at his one-time best friend's funeral. Only it isn't hatred Autumn feels…but desire that threatens to burn beyond control.
