Review: That Thing Between Eli & Gwen

**A multicultural new adult romance from bestselling author, J.J. McAvoy**

Eli Davenport thinks he’s found the perfect woman to be his wife. She’s a doctor, like he is. She’s brilliant, like he is. And she’s wealthy, like he is.

Guinevere 'Gwen' Poe thinks her fiancé is the perfect man. He’s handsome, successful and he was her first…

But when Eli’s bride runs off with Gwen’s fiancée on his wedding day, they are left to pick up the broken pieces of each other...

Review by Jennifer (Copy provided via NetGalley for an honest review)

JJ McVoy officially has a new fan. ME! My blog partner has been raving about this book since she read it and when I saw it available on NetGalley I thought what the heck! Holy moly, I am glad that I did. This book was everything I could have wished for.

The story starts out with one hell of a shock. I was like wait a minute did I just read that right? Did that really just happen? My heart sunk and I felt so much empathy for these two characters. But the story doesn’t stop there, oh no, it is just beginning and it builds and builds from there.

THE BANTER! OMG THE BANTER! It was perfect! There is no other word for it. I love good banter in a book and this one didn’t disappoint me. Eli & Gwen could definitely go at it, in all aspects of their relationship really. Eli was snotty, egotistical and downright rude and sometimes I wanted to slap him. Gwen was sassy and caring but also not afraid to give it right back to Eli and boy did she ever. Just thinking about it makes me want to read this book all over again. Their relationship builds slowly, it’s definitely not love at first site. Not even like at first site but as they find common ground and a fondness for one another you can’t help but fall in love with them falling in love. They were just a perfect match for one another in every way. I totally loved every minute of their story!!!
