This is a story that everyone should read!
That Thing Between Eli and Gwen is a story that is filled with humour, passion, heart breaking moments and the feels!
The story starts with both Eli and Gwen being left by their fiances, for each others fiances, on Eli’s wedding day. The story that follows is one that will make your heart swell with love and have you crying tears of laughter (and some through heartbreak!). It’s a story that will leave you unable to put it down until you have reached the end and have you falling in love over and over again!
Gwen, an artist, had me laughing so hard that my sides hurt and I had tears rolling down my cheeks. Yes she doesn’t have the best start in the book but neither does Eli. Her relationship with her dog, Taigi, I loved almost as much as her and Eli! It must be the animal lover in me but it was something I related to easily and part of what made me laugh so much. She’s a young, feisty, passionate woman and you will very quickly fall in love with her and her wacky ways. Eli, a neurosurgeon, had me swooning from the get go. His and Gwen’s banter is perfect, the way they are around each other and the way they talk to each other makes you want to keep reading and get to know them even more. The way they are with each other is enough to make any girl wish for their very own Eli! And his loyalty to his family makes him all the more edible.
They say opposites attract and in this story it couldn’t be more true. The two are complete opposites but I think that’s what makes them work and the fact that they only seem to bring out the best in each other and make the worst not seem so awful.
It’s a story of hope, of learning to love again and to follow your dreams. No matter what obstacles you face as long as you have someone you love beside you anything is achievable.
