Book Review – The Ocean Between Us (Southern Heroes #1) by Michelle Heard

Hey lovely readers!

41819920“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.”



Michelle Heard is an expert at making me ugly cry and that is a compliment.

I was not expecting to love this book, this story, these characters as much as I did. Aiden was absolutely lovely, I mean he’s so sweet and caring. I was definitely swooning over him the entire time haha. He definitely has his secrets an he’s not perfect, but he tries so hard to be the best version of himself. Michelle always does such a great job of creating an adorable, protective alpha male and Aiden is no exception.

And then there’s Emma, oh my goodness this girl has some serious strength. Her home life is truly terrible and yet she stays true to herself and who she wants to be. She literally goes to the other side of the world to get away from her family and if that’s not brave I don’t know what is. the story more real. I was so damn proud of her for finally realizing how beautiful and strong she is, for standing up for herself. I literally shouted “you go girl” when she finally spoke up! I also loved the sexy times between Emma and Aiden, so freaking realistic and yet hot haha.

This book is filled with heartbreak, but when these two finally realize who they can be together. Ugh it’s everything you could ever want it to be. This book is everything.


Thanks for reading guys! Talk to you soon! ❤ Adrianna
