The Ocean Between Us (Southern Heroes, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Ocean Between Us by Michelle Heard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dying to experience life, I cross an ocean to get away from my fears. I find my safe haven in the form of Detective Aiden Holden.

He shows me what love is, but then our lives collide. Our little world shatters, and I’m caught in the crossfire.

I’m forced to return home, to let go of the only person who has made me feel like I could be more.

How do you return to a cage once you’ve tasted freedom?

My only hope is that Aiden will cross an ocean for me.

Please note: The Ocean Between Us contains graphically violent scenes that may be upsetting to some readers.

BLURB: The Ocean Between Us

A romantic action hero

Emma is abused at home by her alcoholic mother most of her life. Even after turning 18, she under the thumb of her mother until she turns 21 and gets some part of her trust fund though her mother still has to approve purchases. She has learned over time that it is not worth it to stand up to her Mom because the beatings are worse when she tries.

When she turns 21 she gets a student Visa and escapes the US with the help of a friend and meets Aiden and a group of his friends. Aiden is her roommate and she develops feelings for him. He is a true hero to her in many ways while the people he hangs with are not good people.

It is a good story and hot romance. Quite a bit of angst. I like the hero and southern gentleman aspects. Emma is not shown as weak, she is strong because of her background but she does need Aiden.
