Tab Bennet and the Inbetween by Jes Young

3 Stars

Tab Bennet is seemingly normal girl who has a normal job, loving family, and childhood friend turned fiance' until her sisters start disappearing. The book starts off with a bang instantly drawing into this story with Tab having a vision of the death of her sister Rivers. Then the story delves into the weird happenings that have been going on around the family, and house where they live. 
I enjoyed this book, and the story was different than most of the paranormal romances I read. There were no Vampires or brooding Werewolves in sight. There were no heavy issues going on, you can just read and enjoy. If you are looking for a really sexy book, this one might not be the one for you. 

The Good-
I loved the imagery used in this book. I felt like I could see the scenery and smell the earth the way she described them. 
There is a constant pace that does not leave you lulling and skipping through.
There is an intense love story going on.
The heroine is not a shrinking violet, she is pretty bad ass! 

The Bad-
The "romance" aspect was virtually nonexistent. I felt like I was being supernaturally cock blocked all the time. I would have enjoyed more steam. This book was a YA book with adult characters.
I would have liked a little more back story to Tab and the world she came from. If the author had spent a little more time developing her world I would have taken the book to the next level.
