Now that he’s living with Sam Stein, Zach Cohen is finally ready to move on from his unhappy past. His days are filled with wedding preparations, yet he still finds time to make plans and decisions without consulting Sam and his mother, firmly believing he knows best.
Sam is ready to settle in for the perfect life with Zach but years of bad habits have come back to haunt him. Struggling to accept himself and his future, he chooses not to share his fears, unwilling to look weak in Zach’s eyes.
Real life gets in the way of the best intentions and when their secrets explode, the aftermath challenges the foundation of a relationship both believed unshakeable. Falling in love is the easy part, and Zach and Sam discover that only with honesty can they overcome what threatens to tear them apart.
This is a novella of approximately 25,000 words in The Breakfast Club series
If you are a fan of Felice Steven’s Breakfast Club series, you won’t want to miss her latest novella in the series, What Lies Between Us. In it we catch up with Sam and Zach (from Book 2, Betting on Forever) as they plan their wedding and adjust to life as a soon to be married couple.
As with most of Stevens stories, the trials they come up against aren’t anything out of the ordinary for a normal (read non-fiction) couple. They have to deal with combining their lives and how much of said life to share. They both fail a bit in that regard and have to trust in themselves, each other, and their love.
We get to catch up with Julian and Marcus, of course, but I was pleased to see Gideon and Jonah from Steven’s Hanukkah tale Learning to Love (from the Home for the Holidays anthology).
If you haven’t read the series, or at least Sam and Zach’s story, you will likely not understand how far Sam and Zach have come. However, I think you can still enjoy the story as a stand alone. You will just get more out of it if you have read the series.
