"Can't wait to read other books by Zoe York. She reminds me in some ways of Jill Shalvis with her story telling." ~ 5 star review, Community Bookstop
Fall in love with the Wardham series: modern, sexy small town romances
Their story didn’t start with a fairytale romance. Their marriage wasn’t chosen for love. But they still chose each other...time and again.
Romance is the last thing on Ian's mind. He's juggling two jobs, his kids are crazy and every time he gets close to his wife, she snaps at him. Communication has never been their strong suit, and now their physical connection is fizzling as well. Carrie knows she's being too hard on her husband, but eight years ago she had a one-night stand that turned into a lifetime of diapers and dinners. She can't shake the feeling that she wants more. Too bad she has no idea what that might be.
Between Then and Now is a standalone novella in The Wardham Series. 5 chapters, 16, 000 words. Also includes an excerpt from the next book in the series.

I was first introduced to Zoe York's stories just this year in August via NetGalley when I was provided a copy of Love in a Small Town as an ARC to read an review and I was blown away by how I much I loved the book. So When the 4th book in THIS series came up on NetGalley, I jumped at the opportunity to read it. And again, she blew me away. So the decision was made then! She is now one of my top TBR authors! I grabbed every Wardham book I could get my hands on and read them back to back. I couldn't stop! (Yes, I tend to read books, take notes and review at some other point in my life LOL ... well the time has come!)
Between Then and Now is the beginning of what promises to be a FANTABULOUS series of the people in a small town called Wardham. This book is about Ian and Carrie. They NEED a HEA really really bad! They married out of obligation and eight years later find that their marriage is struggling badly. But when I say obligation, it does NOT mean that there is no love...
Characters not great but ok. Plot fair, story flows well and I would recommend it to others.
I am not as thrilled with this book as I was as the other 2 I read by this author but it is far above a lot of the other books I have tried to read in this genre.
The biggest problem in the marriage was lack of communication. I thought throughout most of the book that the characters were about 8 years younger than the age they were being depicted because of the way they acted and the secrets they had kept.
I think I've a s wonderful of Ian to want to surprise his wife but that is the kind of financial decision that both partners should make no matter how much money they have.
Over the years of our marriage my husband and I together have amassed a nice nest egg and we pretty much buy what we want but major purchases are decided on together. Even at this stag of our life $3k is a major purchase.
I have several of Zoe York's Wardham series and I love each and every one! I have not read them in order and it is not necessary to do so, but it is nice if you can. When I read one of these books, I feel as if I'm right there experiencing what the characters are and I'm swept away for a time in their wonderful sexy, loving world. There is angst to go along with that, but it is not drawn out and juvenile. This is the start of this series, and while it is short it just as good as the rest of the series. Follow along as these two figure out what has happened between when they first met, and now when something feels like it is missing in their lives. '
