What if you could hear the words behind the words?

Brad Weston’s life seems perfect. He’s GQ handsome, the chief of staff for a Republican California state senator, and enjoys the power and the promise of a bright future. And he’s in a comfortable relationship with his boyfriend of six years, Alex.

Sam Fuller is Brad’s young blond blue-eyed intern, fresh out of college, running from a bad breakup, and questioning his choices and his new life in politics. To make things worse, Sam also has a thing for the boss, but Brad is already taken.

While looking for a gift for his boyfriend, Brad wanders into a curiosity shop and becomes fascinated by an old wooden medallion. Brad’s not a superstitious man, but when he takes out the medallion in his office, he sees the world in a whole new light.

And nothing will ever be the same.

…The medallion is a brilliant twist on a familiar trope, adding a paranormal edge to conventional elements. I was anxious to see what would happen each time Brad wraps his hand around it, and I found myself wondering what it would be like to truly see the thoughts of people around me. Would l like it? What would they be thinking? After seeing what happens in Between the Lines, I’ve pretty much decided ignorance is bliss, although for Brad it does have a silver lining… Raring: Bad Ass Boots

This was a short read but it definitely delivered and kept you wanting more. I wanted to read more from J. Scott Coatsworth since reading his short story in the Candle in the Dark: Anthology. This was a fresh take for me and I enjoyed the book but I was disappointed that it wasn’t longer. J. Scott has a way of writing characters that make you want to read their minds. I know I am selfish in wanting more from him, but I really want him to write a full book. His writing style doesn’t call for extended sexual scenes and most of the time they are sweet or not existent.

I give this book 4 diamonds because even for a short read this had a completed storyline.
