(review request submitted by the author for an honest critique)
It’s not often I enjoy the supporting characters instead of the main stars; however, that was what happened for me in Between the Two of You.
Jason Lane (actor) was extremely shallow and self-absorbed for over 90% of the story.
David Cole (agent) acted like a jealous idiot for the same percentage of time. He was jealous of his friend for multiple reasons. What a sad, sad man and I don’t mean it in the way where I feel any compassion for him.
Amy (leading lady) came across just as shallow as Jason. She liked Jason and Clive because they had a pretty face.
Her whole attitude towards Clive and Jason confused me. Let me explain one thing I didn’t comprehend. Maybe you will.
Amy perceived Clive too young for her, a ‘baby’, because he was 22 to her 27. However, Jason and David were both 39. Shouldn’t they have a problem with the 12 year gap? When David turned 40, still no mention of the 10 plus years separating them. So basically, she can’t date a younger man but a man can date a younger woman?
Why? I don’t get it.
Since the story kept fluctuating between the three men (in one way or another) and her, a center of their attention, I kept focusing on her weird ass logic with what was ok and what was not.
For that reason, I scored this book a two.
Again I must say, without the supporting cast of Olivia, Karen, Nathan and even Matt, Between the Two of You would’ve score a 1.
