• But! We already met Faith in Someday, Someday
4.9 Stars

She’s a city girl in Seattle. He’s a firefighter in a rainforest. This is never going to work…

Faith Benson isn’t your emergency contact, she’s the party-girl friend you call for a good time. The gal-pal who loves mimosas at brunch and martinis at Happy Hour. But her carefree lifestyle threatens her job at a top Seattle ad agency. There’s no one better at landing big accounts (when she shows up) but her boss demands she take a leave of absence to get her head on straight.

Faith heads to the remote Hawaiian island of Kauai, far away from the vices that get her in trouble. A twisted ankle on Day One requires rescuing by a man who is vice personified—a gorgeous firefighter who awakens feelings in her heart she never knew existed.

Asher Mackey doesn’t get involved with beautiful tourists beyond taking them to bed and then watching them leave his tiny island. He’s devoted his life to the safety and care of everyone around him…except himself. Until he meets Faith Benson, the city girl whose vibrant, inner beauty shines a light on the dark corners of his life, showing him how safe—but empty—it truly is.

Despite their best efforts to keep their distance, Faith and Asher fall hard and fast, but there’s an ocean between them. Both are building their lives on opposite sides of the Pacific while their feelings for each other grow more profound and undeniable by the day.

Something has to give.

When Asher receives devastating news, he and Faith have to decide once and for all to entrust their hearts fully to the other or return to their safe—but separate—worlds. Because neither can endure much longer, living somewhere between hello and goodbye.

Between Hello and Goodbye is a contemporary romance about love, loss, and experiencing life in all its facets. It deals with sensitive topics that may be triggering for some readers.

Faith + Asher

Four years ago Asher followed his little brother to Kauai.
Now he's working as a firefighter/paramedic and other than the occasional night with a tourist, he doens't date. He's happy with his life and his brother's little family.
Faith is a bit lost in life. She's pretty successful at work but her private life is spent going from one drunk one-night stand to the next.
Her boss told her to go on vacation for two weeks. And after that she'll either be promoted to partner or she should go looking for something that makes her happier than this life.
Off to Kauai we go.


What will happen with Faith + Asher?
Will there be a Happily Ever After?

Well ... I loved this - and yeah, I know that was not in question with this being an Emma Scott book! But I just had to mention it anyway. πŸ˜‚
I just adored this story. The whole Island atmosphere and the people and ... just everything. We also know that we won't jump straight to that happy end - we'll have some hard and sad and heartbreaking moments to overcome first. But it starts as this adorable and funny holiday romance. So cute! Well, no, it starts with a sad prologue, but after that it's a cute island romance! Until it's not anymore....
We know Faith from Silas's story Someday, Someday. Remember? She pretended to be his girlfriend. Silas is now her BFF and he's in here a bit too. Adorable!
Faith loves Seattle and the big city life and after leaving his stressful New York life behind, Asher never wants to go back to a big city. He loves his little island life.
But what happens when you fall for someone on vacation? You live thousands of miles apart and neither of you is ready to change home towns?
Let's find out!

I really need some shave ice now asap! πŸ˜‹
BETWEEN HELLO AND GOODBYE was such an adorable + funny + sparky + sexy +  heartbreaking love story. Beautiful location. Perfect cast. Please run to your nearest amazon for your own Asher - this one is MINE!!!
