Review: Beyond the Lights by Nicole Higginbotham-Hogue

A road trip to meet the love of her life when it is just possible she might just be sitting beside her.


Sawyer Johnson has spent her entire life in the same small town with the same people, and she has always imagined a life beyond the bright lights of the town. Autumn Thompson, her best friend is completely satisfied with their simple lifestyle and can’t imagine anything coming in between them. However, when Sawyer decides to go on a trip out of town in order to meet her celebrity crush, Autumn insists on going with her. 

Will Sawyer find happiness in a lifestyle framed around fame and fortune, or will Autumn finally convince her that the life that they had together was worth more than she thought? 

Nicole Higginbotham-Hogue takes us on a journey to make love come true in Beyond the Lights. How many movies have we seen where someone thinks if they just meet this “absolutely unobtainable person” that this person will take one look at them and say, “yup, I was just sitting here waiting for you.” (laugh) Sawyer has really high hopes. 

The funny thing is: Higginbotham-Hogue throws a huge monkey wrench in the joke of this trope by making dreams come true! Amy and Sawyer meet in a movie style moment. Then literally everything that happens after seems like everything was meant to be for Amy and Sawyer. I was literally saying “wtf?!!!” (laugh) Wow…I did not see this coming.

Then Dawn comes into the picture, who by the way I am totally crushing on, and “Hello, how you doin’?” Holy sugar, Higginbotham-Hogue has us in a conundrum. 

You have to read the book to find out what happens. (laugh) You did not really think I was going to tell you did you? 

Higginbotham-Hogue utilizes the beautiful backdrop of Montana to tell the story. It is a great place to pause and fall in love. Take some time and enjoy Beyond the Lights, a slow-burn HEA romance.

I received an ARC of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.
