    Cute enemies to lovers romance

    Confession time: Characters who start off completely against love and relationships, and then have an epiphany because of the main love interest usually aren't my cup of tea. I'm cynical and jaded. It takes a lot to convince me one person can completely change someone so drastically. In Between the Lines, Malcolm knocks this trope out of the ballpark. I was rooting for Luca and Theo with every fiber of my being. If you've read Perfect Day by Malcolm, you may remember Luca being very briefly mentioned as the summer lifeguard/surf instructor and son of the owner of the bed and breakfast on the bay. He's travels all over the country, taking jobs in different states for each season. He's the anti-relationship, anti-love MC. He's up for fun and zero attachments. Until... ...dear Theo. Oh, how he stole my heart. I learned a lot about dyspraxia through Malcolm's portrayal of Theo. He's sensitive and proud and passionate and trusting, and I just loved him. That's not to say I didn't love Luca. I did, just in a different way. These two were so sweet together when they finally got their heads out of the sand. I adored the grand gesture and the mention of "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds, my favorite song by one of my favorite artists. Without a doubt, I am looking forward to Malcolm's next offering in the M/M romance genre.

    Very cute!

    Sometimes you just need a really sweet story where things work out and Love is found and no one dies and hope is realized. That is exactly what this story was about. Letting yourself fall and hope someone will catch you, even though you’ve been dropped before. This was a great story of a family legacy that was in desperate need of fixing up with no one able to do it, yet selling felt unbearable. And Luca, who had planned on inheriting the hotel one day was stuck in the middle. He’d run into Theo and made a bad impression and then realized he was there to take away his dream. Theo had a soft heart and suffered from dyspraxia, leaving him feeling inadequate in many situations. I live to see a MC thrive in life when they suffer roadblocks such as this. And to see how Luca saw this as a way to be closer to Theo, instead of treating him as a child. Anyway, I was in the mood for a light tale of love and trust and I certainly got it with this book.

    So wonderful, so emotional, I loved it!

    After I read Perfect Day, my first book by Sally Malcolm, I wasn't sure the next one could live up to how much I loved the first. Not only did Between the Lines live up to Perfect Day for me but it may have tipped over the top just a bit. Both of these are wonderful love stories. One of the MCs (main characters) in Between the Lines has a condition that I've never heard of before, Dyspraxia. A neurological disorder that results in life-long impaired motor, memory, judgement, processing, and other cognitive skills.-- Dyspraxia Foundation USA Because I wasn't familiar with this disorder I read up a bit on it. From the way that Ms. Malcolm writes Theo's reaction to things and his behavior around people I wasn't surprised at all to learn that she has personal experience with this condition. Theo has come to New Milton to buy the hotel owned by Luca's family. When the two of them make a connection, they agree to enjoy a two-week fling while Theo is there – no strings attached. Too bad neither of them told their hearts not to get involved. Both Theo and Luca have serious trust issues when it comes to personal relationships. Luca thinks that getting close to someone isn't worth the risk because they'll always let you down. Theo doesn't think that he'll ever have the kind of committed loving relationship that he wants. His last relationship ended in public humiliation and he can't risk that ever happening again. I thought this story was so romantic. Yes, there were unpleasant things that happened and some moments that had me nearly bawling my eyes out, but it was ultimately such a wonderful story about overcoming obstacles, both business and personal. As I said in my review for Perfect Day, if you've never read an M/M romance before, but have thought about it, I highly recommend Between the Lines (or Perfect Day) as a perfect one to start with. There is no explicit on-page sex, it's just a really wonderful romance. Sally Malcolm's writing flows so smoothly and had me so engrossed in the story, I didn't want to put this book down once I started it. I'm looking forward to reading more book by Ms. Malcolm. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***

    Very interesting novel

    I love the character of both Luca and Theo. The moment I started reading, I cannot let go of my Kobo. I can feel the rollercoaster ride of emotions in this novel.
