Our Review

“We’re stuck, aren’t we? Trapped somewhere between hello and goodbye.”

Everything from the cover to the story of Between Hello and Goodbye by Emma Scott was just beautiful! We always relish that exciting and enticing feeling as we open a new book by this Author. We know we’ll fall in love, feel emotionally invested and find moments of utter beauty and poignancy between the pages. Emma Scott writes from her heart, weaving parts of herself into her stories with sublime intensity and vivid imagery.

‘But is it living life when you can’t even remember it?’
‘…you don’t know what else is out there until you sit still for a minute.’

There hasn’t been a time spent when engrossed in her world, where we haven’t shed a tear or felt overwrought with emotion. Yet we also marvel at the splendid beauty and wonderfully complex characters that feel so real. This book truly felt different, it had a maturity and emotional knowledge that touched us deeply. As for the written scenery of Kauai in Between Hello and Goodbye -without question- Kauai served as a character in its own right. We were there on the island with all the wonderful characters. We could smell the sea breeze, feel the sand between our toes and the sunrays warm our skin. We laughed, grieved, and celebrated.

‘Every caress dropped little flares into that untouched space, revealing something raw and naked. Vulnerable and soft and so delicate, it would break at the slightest mishandling. It was the part of me I kept protected from pain and  – I realized – the most perfect joy.’

Between Hello and Goodbye is a story of new beginnings, healing, and love. It‘s about hardship, suffering, and grief. It’s about what comes after loss; human behaviour and self-reflection. It’s Emma Scott doing what Emma Scott does best; magnificent evocative storytelling. In a world that can ultimately swallow you whole into a swirling vortex of intense emotions and repercussions, your heart will fight on. You have the inner strength to fight on. Promise.

‘I wanted to love him and be loved by him. Not to become lost in Asher and give myself up to him, but to be more with him. More of myself than I yet knew. Because I had something to give, too.’

Faith Benson and Asher Mackey are two very different people who meet in a moment where the strong is vulnerable and the vulnerable is strong. We loved how the personal dynamics were manifested and the journey that came from the turmoil within, past experiences, and utter heart-breaking grief. It was such a compelling journey that shone a spotlight on the peace and serenity which can be found in even the darkest of places. Your memories will never leave your heart, but this can both be a curse and a blessing. You will have good and bad days, sometimes leaning heavily in one direction, but remember that this is okay. This is your right. This is love. The purest of loves.

“Till we meet again.”


She’s a city girl in Seattle. He’s a firefighter in a rainforest. This is never going to work…

Faith Benson isn’t your emergency contact, she’s the party-girl friend you call for a good time. The gal-pal who loves mimosas at brunch and martinis at Happy Hour. But her carefree lifestyle threatens her job at a top Seattle ad agency. There’s no one better at landing big accounts (when she shows up) but her boss demands she take a leave of absence to get her head on straight.

Faith heads to the remote Hawaiian island of Kauai, far away from the vices that get her in trouble. But a twisted ankle on Day One requires rescuing by a man who is vice personified—a gorgeous firefighter who awakens feelings in her heart she never knew existed.

Asher Mackey doesn’t get involved with beautiful tourists beyond taking them to bed and then watching them leave his tiny island. He’s devoted his life to the safety and care of everyone around him…except himself. Until he meets Faith Benson, the city girl whose vibrant, inner beauty shines a light on the dark corners of his life, showing him how safe—but empty—it truly is.

Despite their best efforts to keep their distance, Faith and Asher fall hard and fast, but there’s an ocean between them. Both are building their lives on opposite sides of the Pacific while their feelings for each other grow more profound and undeniable by the day.

Something has to give.

When Asher receives devastating news, he and Faith have to decide once and for all to entrust their hearts fully to the other or return to their safe—but separate—worlds. Because neither can endure much longer, living somewhere between hello and goodbye.

Between Hello and Goodbye is a contemporary romance about love, loss, and experiencing life in all its facets. It deals with sensitive topics that may be triggering for some readers

“Just don’t fall in love with me,” I teased. “Kay.” He said.


‘Sometimes passion was a whisper, other times a roar. This time? It was a storm.’


“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”


‘It’s such a simple word – just four letters. Home. But there aren’t enough letters in the alphabet in the world to capture the meaning of it.’

SWEET MEMORY (The Painted Daisies #1) by LJ EVANS

“I’m afraid I’ll fall completely, head-over-heels in love with you, and that you’ll fall back. I’m afraid we’ll discover we’re the missing pieces of each other’s souls.
The words had a beat -a rhythm- like it was a song she’d already written.
