After a painful loss, Cady Moreland is coming to Magdalene to start the next chapter of her life. A chapter that began eighteen years ago but had a heartbreaking ending. The time in between was full of family and friendship, but Cady could never get the man she fell in love with all those years ago out of her heart.
Coert Yeager has learned to live without the girl who entered his life right when she shouldn’t and exited delivering a crippling blow he never would have suspected. The time in between was full of failing to find what he was missing…and life-altering betrayal.
But when that girl shows up in Magdalene and buys the town’s beloved lighthouse, even if Coert wants to avoid her, he can’t. A fire in town sparks a different kind of flame that won’t be ignored.
As Cady and Coert question the actions of the two young adults they once were thrown into earth-shattering circumstances, can they learn from what came in between and find each other again?

❝He grinned. I fell into it like it was the desired destination it absolutely was.❞
A beautiful story, stunning characters, and a second-chance romance that will make you swoon, ‘The Time in Between’ is KA at her finest and one of my favorite books she’s written!
Cady Moreland is the black sheep of the family. Whether it is emotional or material, they refuse to provide her with any support, they have shunned her. But Cady is a strong character, who, rather than feeling sorry for herself, works hard to make ends meet. Her best friend Maria, and Maria’s boyfriend, Lonnie, are her family. They are loyal, they don’t judge, they let each other be who they are and they have fun together.
At a party, Cady eyes the handsome Coert Yeager as he walks in. When she finds that Lonnie is friends with him, she takes that as a sign that he is a good guy. They share a mutual attraction. What starts out as friendship quickly turns into a whirlwind romance based on lies and deception. When the truth came out, the relationship was broken, but the bond remained.
❝And I was going to do all of this because I was going to be someone I liked, someone worthwhile.❞
18-years later, Cady is trying to recover from the loss of her husband, she moves to Magdalene hoping to reclaim her life. Cady buys a historic lighthouse and the property surrounding it and pours her money and energy into renovations. She never forgot about the one that got away. Will he accept her? Will he shun her, too?
18-years later, Coert Yeager is a single dad of an adorable little girl. He is the Sheriff of Magdalene. When he finds out that Cady has moved to his town from Colorado, he becomes angry. He has worked so hard to forget her. While she still peppered his thoughts and memories, he was surviving. And so what if relationships eluded him? He tried to lie to himself that Cady and the memory of what they once had weren’t the cause. But now she’s there and he want’s her to leave.
❝He loved the way Cady Webster looked at him. And he loved it from the first moment she turned her head from the beer tap and met his eyes.❞
There is nothing like the feeling I get after finishing a Kristen Ashley book. She writes strong kick-butt heroines, sexy alpha males, and romance that is heartwarming, often heart wrenching, but always sexy! Top all that off, she writes some of the best second chance romance stories I’ve ever read! This is definitely one of those books I will read again and again! Definitely a top favorite of the year!
❝… when you write the end to this chapter of your life, that’s where your next chapter starts. The one that leads to a happy ending.❞
