Book Review - SOMEONE IN THE WAY by RACHEL DEL
See what our review team is saying about Someone In The Way
There's a lot of real life situations in this book. It seems Lily Gardner's life is no different than the rest of us. When things go wrong, they go wrong all at once or at least it feels that way! Lily is separated and about to sign off on her final divorce papers. The marriage wasn't the best but the divorce is really difficult. Being a newly divorced woman with a young child is bad enough but having job problems, just compounds how rough life can be. Enter Nathan Trainor who's a nice guy and yet strong enough to help Lily deal with all life throws at her. This is such a charming book with situations that feel so real and yet it's a sweet enough book to take you away to another place while reading and enjoying it.
Someone in The Way is the the story of Lily and Nate. Lily is in the process of getting divorced from a jerk of a husband, all the while trying to keep it on the down low at work. Which is where Nate comes in at. I found myself getting frustrated with both Lily and Nate for talking to each other when they should. I also would have liked to have seen Lily stand up to Thomas a bit more than she did. I liked throwing Tanner into the mix, his character is fun. Overall it was a pretty good story and an easy read.
Honestly, this took me a little to get into. Not because it's written poorly, I just was feeling it on a personal preference. The blurb sold it to me and when I came back to it, I got into it. It just wasn't an epic read. The connection the Nate and Lilly had was a slow burn for me, I didn't find it to be the all consuming love and desire. Not an overly long story to read, and, maybe you'll see it in a different light to me, I certainly wouldn't discredit it.
I fell in love with Lily and Nate so quick! You have Lily who is getting divorced from her husband and being a single mother well it has there ups and downs. But Nate, is the one I love the most. He tried to do everything to get her to smile to never feel down, he wanted to date her but wasn't sure if it was too soon. He was also gong through a tough time with his family, so when he would see Lily that would brighten his day. They have there ups and downs no love is perfect, but you cant fight love especially when its right in front of you.
Lily and Nathan. Lily is going through a rough patch. Motivation is at an all time low, a bad breakup/divorce. Nathan works along side Lily and has harboured feelings for a while. Since he heard of her divorce its all systems go. The Chemistry between them is electric but by no means easy. Its a lovely, touching read. The ups and downs leave you turning the pages religiously. Good read.
Lily Gardner thought she’d found her soul mate when she met and married the handsome and well-off Thomas Gardner. But now, thirty, with a four-year-old son, Lily finds herself wading through the messy waters of divorce and single motherhood, crying herself to sleep at night wondering if she’s just lost her only chance at love—and herself in the process.
Nathan Trainor always falls for the wrong women—and Lily is no exception. But now that she’s practically single Nate knows this could be his only chance to prove history wrong. When Lily and Nate are assigned the task of signing a bestselling author who is rumored to be seeking new representation, Lily must put her troubles aside and do whatever it takes to get the job done. And Nate might just get his chance to write his own happy ending.
At once heartbreaking and hopeful, Someone In The Way captures what it feels like to be given a second chance at life—and love. ** Someone In The Way was previously published as Finding Lily, but has been entirely re-written **
