The Other Side of Us: by Sarah Mayberry

    I have finished reading The Other Side of Us by Sarah Mayberry, and I loved it. There are a lot of intense emotions but they are covered up with humor. This book was hilarious. It took me a couple chapters to realize that the story is happening in Australia. Once I did, the characters took on an Aussie accent and the story became even funnier. We all say "LOL" so much lately, but Mayberry actually had me Laughing Out Loud numerous times through the book. Consider this fair warning before you start reading this at work, or school or anywhere else reading is probably not appropriate, you'll get caught.
  Also, I loved the characters. They are very well developed. You get a very good sense of their physical attributes as well as their personalities.Which seems to be a hard thing for some writers to accomplish, Mayberry does it fabulously.  The are the two main characters, hero Oliver and heroine Mackenzie, as well as two canoodling canine co-stars who will keep you laughing throughout the novel.
   I only have one warning for this novel other than the "bursting out laughing" and it's sex. There is quite a bit of it and some of it's graphic. However, it's not too bad. Not pages and pages of the same love scene. There's no heavy drinking, drugs, or religion. Just comedic romance.  I'm not sure if I paid for this book or if it was a free download, but if I did pay for it, it was worth it.
