Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Sky Between Us, by Mia Kun

The Sky Between Us by Mia Kun is now live!

Some mistakes can’t be forgiven or left behind. Some mistakes, leave a mark on us and we have to carry their consequences forever.

Six years ago, my life fell apart and ever since I was living within those broken pieces.
Until I met him.
The moment I walked into the Starbucks on my first day of work and laid eyes on him, everything changed.
He saw me.
For the first time in three years, I wasn’t invisible. I’ve grown used to staying on the sidelines and living in the shadows until I met him.
Aiden Hitchings was my father’s favorite player. Our university’s soccer star. The one who lived in the spotlight.
I knew I shouldn’t have tempted fate, but falling for him wasn’t a choice.
History was about to repeat itself, and I couldn’t do anything to stop it.

Last year of college was going to be epic. Juggling our NCAA Championship, coursework and my part-time job at Starbucks wasn’t easy, but it was all going to pay off once I signed my professional contract.
That was before she walked in.
The hazel-eyed girl with a sharp tongue, the one who always blended into the background, was staring right back at me. The Coach’s daughter, one I should have avoided at any cost but kept being drawn to.
She shattered my carefully built-up world and inked herself deep into my soul.
But she carried a secret with her that stood between us, slowly breaking us.
And for the first time in my life, I lost control and I felt helpless.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3 Stars

The coach’s daughter and the star soccer player hate each other on sight. He thinks she’s holier-than-thou, and she assumes he’s another smarmy jock. But as they work together at the local Starbucks, they find that those initial assumptions were wrong, and they begin to fall for one another. But she’s got a major secret, and he’s potentially headed to Europe to play pro soccer — does their relationship have an expiration date?

The Sky Between Us had good potential, but it fell kinda flat. I liked Aiden more than I liked Hazel, but I had a hard time shipping this couple. I figured out right away what Hazel’s secret was, and while it is life-changing, it isn’t traumatic and really didn’t ruin her life the way she made it seem. Unfortunate? Yes. Traumatic? No. Sure, she has a jerk of an ex, but she had lots of family support after the event, and was in a much better position than some other young women in her situation could have been.

Also, this author isn’t American, and there is a clear language barrier. Her phrasing is kind of clunky, and there is dialog between some characters that is not natural. So that was a bit jarring for me in reading.

I thought there was some nice growth between Hazel and Aiden by the end of the story, and I really liked the epilogue. But generally, this book just didn’t work for me.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily let a review.
