Book Blurb:

The best thing between Oliver Barrett and Mackenzie Williams is a fence. Ever since Oliver's new-neighbor gestures were met with unfriendly responses, he's decided to keep his distance. After all, he's in this seaside town to get his life on track again. That doesn't include working hard to get on Mackenzie's good side--no matter how intriguing she may be.

His intentions are put to the test, however, when his dog becomes infatuated with hers. The two crafty canines do their best to break down the barriers between the properties. And where the dogs go...well, the humans must follow! It doesn't take long for a powerful attraction to build between Oliver and Mackenzie. They soon discover that the worst of first impressions can lead to the best possible outcomes....


The Other Side of Us by accomplished Australian author Sarah Mayberry, was brilliant. As is her normal standard, the book was intelligently written, heart-warming, sexy and full of witty humor.

Passionate and intelligent Mackenzie Williams was determined to conquer her devastating injuries sustained the previous year, and return to her ‘normal’ life in the City as Producer of a television mini-series. She had chosen her picturesque beach residence in southern Australia’s Flinders for her convalescence, seemingly sustained by her drive to recovery, her dog Mr Smitty, and her isolation.

Humiliated by his wife’s indiscretions, sexy and vibrant Oliver Barrett had retreated to Flinders to find himself and grieve. His life was on hold, the pause requiring contemplation and peace. Something that from his first introduction to his exasperating neighbor, no longer seemed probable. With their dogs becoming immediately smitten with each other, it seemed that interaction was inevitable, and what interaction that turned out to be!!! (Hot!!)

Sarah Mayberry’s writing is unquestionably good. Her language is delightfully descriptive and rich in humor, quick wit and intellect. The witty repartee between luscious Oliver and sassy Mackenzie was wonderful – providing frequent moments of chuckling. It’s so hard to choose one sample, but here goes
“This mousse is really good,” Mackenzie said
“Thanks, I opened the package myself.” (replied Oliver)
Their salacious love-making was a turn on and exquisite in its description.
“As always, the first slide of his body into hers was transcendent.”  Yum.

The Other Side of Us was a fabulous read. I laughed often, was brought to tears at the emotional turmoil each character endured, and was completely engrossed, falling in lust with Oliver and gaining utmost respect for Mackenzie. With wonderfully believable characters, captivating storyline and a happy resolution, this is a book I would recommend to many.
