I’m really obsessed with chick-lit books, although I find a lot that are lower than my expectations. The Distance Between Us was the first of Kasie West’s books I read, and it was absolutely amazing. If you’re looking for a perfect beach/summer romance, pick this up or just place it in your “imaginary bookshelf.”
So the book features Caymen Meyers who helps sell porcelain dolls in her mother’s shop. One day she meets Xander Spence, who’s rich and the total opposite of Caymen. Her mom wouldn't approve of her being with Xander, but she has to be with him and she realizes that he’s all she has.
The story was so light and beautiful. I remember reading this in one sitting and I couldn’t put it down once I began it.
I loved the setting and how the story took place, emphasize that how. A doll shop was such a great place to fall in love!
I was literally obsessed with Xander. He was so charming and made me fangirl whenever he would say something adorable to Caymen. Speaking of which, Caymen was a goody-two shoes just how I expected her to be because of this strong contemporary story. She was very gentle and she was so weak sometimes that I just wanted her to do what I wanted her to do. She was really easy sometimes but I loved her as a character and person, she wasn't perfect.
So basically this book “taught” me that your imperfections make you stronger. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, love is everything and you don't have to be the “same” to fall in love. Sorry, that was a little deep but this book means a lot to me, lol.
This book probably won’t be for everybody, but I wish that you guys could give it a try. :)
