The Other Side of Us - Sarah Mayberry Didn't connect to this story or the characters like I usually do with a Mayberry romance. Didn't care for all the internalization from both when a simple conversation could clear it all up. Felt as if their issues were so strongly separate and as a result those were the focus of the book and not a developing, passionate romance.

There were times the trademark Mayberry tone and voice came through- the sex for one; other were the moments they had witty, charming conversations. I know their individual issues were the main conflict and barrier to the romance, but still, they seemed to take up too much.
