Between Here and the Horizon by Callie Hart

Available on


“You think you know me. You think you want to know me. But trust me, Miss Lang. Pursuing me will be the worst mistake you ever make. I’m broken beyond repair...

...and I take great pleasure in breaking everyone else around me.”

Ophelia Lang needs money, and she needs it bad. Her parent’s restaurant is going under, and ever since she lost her job teaching third grade elementary, scraping enough cash together to pay the bills has proven almost impossible. Her parents are on the brink of losing their home. The vultures are circling overhead. So when Ophelia is offered an interview for a well-paid private tutoring gig in New York, how can she possibly say no?

Ronan Fletcher is far from the overweight, balding businessman Ophelia expected him to be. He’s young, handsome, and wealthy beyond all reason. He’s also perhaps the coldest, rudest person she’s ever met, and has a mean streak in him a mile and a half wide. A hundred grand is a lot of money, however, and if tolerating his frosty temperament, his erratic mood swings and whatever else he throws at her means she’ll get paid, then that is what Ophelia will do.

Her new boss is keeping secrets, though. Awful, terrible secrets.

The ghosts of Ronan Fletcher’s past are about to turn Ophelia’s future upside down, and she can’t even see it coming.

I really enjoyed Between Here and the Horizon. I loved that the story didn't play out how I expected. Not at all. It was awesome. There is a lot of backstory and things that happen that I didn't expect, but I don't want to spoil the surprises. So I am not sure how much I can say about this story. Some slight spoilers ahead so if you don't want to know anything (recommended!) then don't read on!!

Lang needs money to help save her family so when she is offered a lot of money to take care of some kids for six months on a remote island she can't turn it down. This money would help her family so much. This money would mean she wouldn't have to work as hard as she does. This money is everything.

Only when she shows up on the island things don't go the way she planned. I loved the story here. I loved Lang and the guy she ends up with. He is a bit of a recluse, locking himself away from everyone. Even though she doesn't want to, she starts caring for him. She was so sweet and kind and wonderful.

And Mr. Recluse? He was also amazing. I loved how he is not one for half-truths, will call things like he sees them, can be really grumbly and cranky, but underneath it all is so sweet. He has some secrets, a past that hurt him that he hasn't really been able to move on from until Lang shows up. She makes him start to feel like he could be his old self again which scares him. He has been alone, cut off everyone else on the island for so long he doesn't really know how to let people in again. Oh, he was great!

Lang and her man were so perfect together. Perfect in their imperfect situation. And the epilogue? Kill me now. Seriously. Her mystery man is soooo sweet! I seriously loved him so much!! He is still a bit fragile even at the end, but oh it was wonderful. A really great read.
