The Distance Between Us

I love a good romance contemporary. I really, really liked this book. I read it in the course of one day. It is short, fast-paced and super easy to read. It’s a really cute love story with a small love triangle at one point between Xander who is rich, and Mason who is poor like her. I has good main characters like Caymen and Xander and good side characters as well. Caymen has a really good sense of humor which is fun to read.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes a cute love story and about bringing people together from different strokes of life. Just like you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, you shouldn’t judge people by if they have money or not and I think this book captures it great.

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers studies the rich like her own personal science experiment, and after years of observation she’s pretty sure they’re only good for one thing—spending money on useless stuff, like the porcelain dolls in her mother’s shop.

So when Xander Spence walks into the store to pick up a doll for his grandmother, it only takes one glance for Caymen to figure out he’s oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and that he’s one of the first people who actually gets her, she’s smart enough to know his interest won’t last. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned from her mother’s warnings, it’s that the rich have a short attention span. But Xander keeps coming around, despite her best efforts to scare him off. And much to her dismay, she's beginning to enjoy his company.

She knows her mom can’t find out—she wouldn’t approve. She’d much rather Caymen hang out with the local rocker who hasn’t been raised by money. But just when Xander’s attention and loyalty are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn’t a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she’d ever realized. And that Xander’s not the only one she should’ve been worried about.
