Between Here and the Horizon
by Callie Hart
“You think you know me. You think you want to know me. But trust me, Miss Lang. Pursuing me will be the worst mistake you ever make. I’m broken beyond repair…
…and I take great pleasure in breaking everyone else around me.”
Ophelia Lang needs money, and she needs it bad. Her parent’s restaurant is going under, and ever since she lost her job teaching third grade elementary, scraping enough cash together to pay the bills has proven almost impossible. Her parents are on the brink of losing their home. The vultures are circling overhead. So when Ophelia is offered an interview for a well-paid private tutoring gig in New York, how can she possibly say no?
Ronan Fletcher is far from the overweight, balding businessman Ophelia expected him to be. He’s young, handsome, and wealthy beyond all reason. He’s also perhaps the coldest, rudest person she’s ever met, and has a mean streak in him a mile and a half wide. A hundred grand is a lot of money, however, and if tolerating his frosty temperament, his erratic mood swings and whatever else he throws at her means she’ll get paid, then that is what Ophelia will do.
Her new boss is keeping secrets, though. Awful, terrible secrets.
The ghosts of Ronan Fletcher’s past are about to turn Ophelia’s future upside down, and she can’t even see it coming.

Ok, lets start by saying I’m a big fan of Callie Hart, I’ve read all of the Blood & Roses series, all the Dead Man’s Ink series and all the Chaos and Ruin ones, and they are all dark and gritty, and so to be honest wasn’t sure what to expect from this book, I was a little nervous to say the least.
This is one of those books that you just can’t give too much away, it is one of those that you just have to read to fully appreciate, but be prepared, as it is one hell of a ride.
I was not prepared for just how much this book drew me in. It had me hooked from the prologue. But there are some massive twists and turns in this book. At around the 20% mark it just hits you…. like NO, NO, WTF?! Shocked is a understatement. Big old ugly tears are what happened next let me tell you.
This is such a beautiful, heart breaking, emotional and inspiring read. I was there with them, going through it with them. I was a wrung out mess!! This is one of those reads that just stays with you, days after finishing it. I loved how real the characters were and just how well written it was, remarkably so, it was like watching a movie play out in my head.
5 stars just does not cut it for me with this book, it is a must read.
