It's inspiring to see two people in love working together to save what they built and what they want. This is my first book by Zoe York and I will definitely be reading more! This is the first book I've read by Zoe York, and I'm impressed. York has a natural eloquence that flows through her and onto the page giving the reader a very captivating experience. She's so descriptive, it's easy to immerse yourself in the world she had created. Ian and Carrie have been married for 8 years and have 2 children.
They married young and quickly after Carrie found out she was pregnant after a month of dating. They've had to work hard and life is busy for this farmer and his stay-at-home baker wife. They've been a bit disconnected lately and Carrie has some fears about the state of their marriage as well as Ian's feelings for her that stem from how they originally got together. Ian adores his wife, but life being what it is for them - busy, gets in the way sometimes. This story is a sweet and sexy small town love story about how a man who loves his wife 'to the moon and back' goes about showing her, and how a wife is reassured by her husband's gestures of love, both sexy and grand.
A great start to what promises to be a sweet and sexy small town romance series. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author. Aug 02, Molly McLain rated it it was amazing. Between Then and Now is an emotionally intense story about Carrie and Ian Nixon, who, years earlier, married out of obligation, not love.
Both struggle to balance the hand that life has dealt them with what they want for themselves, for each other, and for their family. Fortunately, what began as a less-than-ideal marriage has evolved into a bond much stronger than either of them realized.

Zoe York captures the emotion and conflict between Carrie and Ian in such a way that my heart truly ached for them. And their issues were so real and true to life that I couldn't help but cheer them on, as I might good friends. I won't give any spoilers, but this book contains possibly my favorite line EVER, on page one, to boot. It's hot as heck and I dare you not to fall immediately in love with Ian after reading it. This was a somewhat interesting novella that introduces the Wardham series. I really liked the twist in this romance!
Ian and Carrie are a bit of an older couple, and they hadn't fallen in love when they met. An oops! This is not that prevalent in romance novels and This was a somewhat interesting novella that introduces the Wardham series. This is not that prevalent in romance novels and I really appreciated this quirk! I could easily identify with the characters and envision their world. In short, it was a very enjoyable read, and I look forward to reading the following books in the series!
Aug 19, Rosanna Leo rated it really liked it. A really good short and intro to a great series. I should preface this review by saying I read a lot of PNR and even though I love my immortal heroes with all their bells and whistles, Zoe York's heroes never fail to make me quiver. Her distinctly human characters, with all their flaws and challenges, are so real and well-written, and I love being in her Wardham world.
This novella is no exception. Loved Ian, who is sweet and sexy and so concerned for his wife's happiness, and Carrie was no less A really good short and intro to a great series. Loved Ian, who is sweet and sexy and so concerned for his wife's happiness, and Carrie was no less appealing, with the sorts of grievances and worries that might plague any wife.
Oh, and did I mention the hot sex? That never hurts. Thoroughly enjoyable and I can't wait for more on this series. Short or long story and author Zoe York delivers a good read no matter which it is. This is my first visit to Wardham, this novella for Carrie and Ian was the perfect intro to the town as well as the Nixon family members. What I liked was the fact that after 8 years there were still surprises in store for the couple and more important than that there was still a better, stronger relationship by the end of this novella.
Nov 26, Linda rated it really liked it Shelves: challenge , contemp-romance , kindle-books , challenge. Sweet novella, gives you a lovely story about Ian and Carrie Nixon , a general lay out of Wardam and some of the future characters in upcoming books. Main concentration is on Carrie nd Nixon , how they met, we're they are at in their marriage , Zoe description of Ian as seen by his wife Carrie had me drooling! I am hooked!! This was such a great story. I only wish that it was longer. So good!! Definitely going to continue on with the series.
Zoe is a new-to-me author and she totally won me over with Ian and Carrie. I only wish there was more to Carrie and Ian's story. My first time reading Zoe York was a truly enjoyable experience. Good but not great story. I can understand how Carrie felt about the change in her life plans but that is life. One direction can split or merge into two or even three but I do not understand how 8 years into their marriage Carrie does not know how much Ian loves her and not in the short term either.
Ian could have and should have been telling Carrie how much he loved her every day but life, two jobs and two young children do suck the life out of you. As sad as it was that these two ha 3. As sad as it was that these two had to get into a rocky place to have a much needed talk, I think Ian was genuinely shocked to realise that Carrie did not know he had been in love with her from their second date.
That is on him. A lifetime has happened between then and now Ian and Carrie are at a cross roads in their marriage,and not sure what to do about it. Can they rediscover the chemistry or are they going to continue being miserable. Free on GoogleBooks. This novella focused on a relationship, 8 years into marriage with flashbacks on how they first met. It felt a bit voyeuristic listening in on their fights and misunderstandings. I couldn't help but think of the different love languages and how knowledge of them physical touch, quality time, gift giving, affirmation, acts of service could save couples a lot of heartache.

Between Then and Now
You love this great beach read. Quick read Zoe York is a favorite of mine, so it's no surprise I loved this story. I've read some of the Wardham books and they are great. This one took me about 2 hours to read, total. Carrie and Ian's story is sweet and a little steamy. Great She had big dream's. He was a local farmers accountant.
They got pregnant then married but her dream was to always open a bakery. The two kids were still young and he was working long hours. She had doubts. Little did she knew he was working on making her dreams come true. Recommended An excellent start to a new series. This young couple has s lot of love to buildbtheir lives on. Although times can be hard, memories once healed can sustain a lot of life.
I found this book a heart warming read, about two people and how they found love and understanding to ward one another. Sometimes you just need to talk. Hyatt Regency San Francisco. Hyatt Regency Santa Clara.

Their relationship started with a sizzling physical connection, and he needs to find a way to leverage that into reconnecting on a deeper level. When Laney skipped town to follow her dreams, Kyle didn't go with her.
Twelve years later, she runs into him at Christmastime - and a flame that was extinguished long ago suddenly reignites. This audible has it all. Lanie has never gotten over her ex, Kyle, to the point where she feels like she can't love again. Kyle finally realizes that it was his fault they broke up and not Lanie's like he thought for several years.
So when Lanie comes back to town for the holidays, Kyle is determined to win her back. Lanie is determined for this to just be a fling. What Once Was Perfect is an excellent story.
It's short but is filled with so much that you literally feel like your heart was stomped on. Zoe York is an excellent writer. I loved the characters and the story. I think Rebecca Roberts was the perfect person to narrate this story. Her voice just captivated me and made me want to continue listening. I thought she did an excellent job of capturing the tones that needed to be used and when.

- Between Then and Now (Wardham, #) by Zoe York.
If so, why? I would highly recommend this audiobook, and of course the book itself!!! I love hearing my favourite story and characters come to life. Listening the narration reminded me of parts of the story that I had forgotten and I smiled so many times, loved having Layne and Kyle in my ear and "my head". Who was your favorite character and why? Layne, Evie, the children, so many characters became so vivid!
Which character — as performed by Rebecca Roberts — was your favorite? Layne, she sounded the way I thought Layne would when I read the book. Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? I read this book over 2 years ago so I had forgotten some of it but the narration and descriptions came across so vividly, including the scene when Layne first comes home and sees the farm and when she talks about the name of the farm versus her and her sister's name Any additional comments?
I would encourage people to buy this audiobook as well as all the books in the series. I loved this story!! Great narrator, too! Would you consider the audio edition of What Once Was Perfect to be better than the print version? I would consider the story about the same as the print version.
An awesome book. What did you like best about this story? I am a sucker for reunion story! I loved how they both felt so comfortable when they first got back together. She does a good job of using her voice differently for the speaking parts. Zoe does such a good job of describing the feelings each character has as they see each other the first time, and for each "date". I love how both are blown away at just seeing each other.
What did you love best about What Once Was Perfect? I liked the story of course because I had read the e-book before. Brought back nice memories. It brought back nice memories when I read the book before. Nice inflections and brought the story to life.
