Book Synopsis

Money can't buy a good first impression.

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers learned early that the rich are not to be trusted. And after years of studying them from behind the cash register of her mom's porcelain-doll shop, she has seen nothing to prove otherwise. Enter Xander Spence—he's tall, handsome, and oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and the fact that he seems to be 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 just when Xander's loyalty and attentiveness 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. With so many obstacles standing in their way, can she close the distance between them?

  • A fun and sweet love story

    By Bookbruin
    Actual Rating 4.5 stars The Distance Between Us is all kinds of sweetness and swoons. I loved Kasie West's writing and was completely sucked into the story from the start. Caymen's sense of humor and sarcasm are a real highlight and I laughed out loud throughout the book from gems like this: “Note to self: Caymen is very good at sarcasm.” “If you’re recording notes for an official record, I’d like the word ‘very’ stricken and replaced with ‘exceptionally.” I love how her relationship with Xander developed and grew. It felt natural and sincere. They both have their own family baggage and misconceptions about the other at first, but as they take the time to get to know each other, all of that falls away and what you're left with is just plain perfect. It reminded me a lot of Pride and Prejudice. The "career days" were an adorable addition and really helped show the vulnerabilities, fears, and strengths of both Caymen and Xander. The only reason why this isn't a 5 star read for me is because I thought the big reveal/ending was a little too perfect. Caymen's family is a mystery for almost the entire book and then suddenly, surprise, your grandparents are actually crazy rich, want to be a part of your life, and are ready to swoop in and take care of you and your mom and the doll store. I understand how earth shattering this revelation is to Caymen, that her mother has lied to her her entire life, but it wrapped everything too neatly into a bow for me. Even though Xander doesn't like Caymen because she's rich and I can see how this plot point helped prove that/added drama to their relationship, I felt like it was too rushed. It's been 17 years. Caymen has never met them or even known that they existed, but it all works out perfectly and her mom does a complete 180 too and is ready to allow them back into her life. The one thing I did like though, was that Caymen's grandfather had the same sense of humor as her. He delivered a few great lines, like this one when he first meets Caymen: “Hi, I’m stranger one and this is stranger two. Are you uncomfortable yet?” Overall, The Distance Between Us was exactly what I was hoping it would be - a really enjoyable, funny, and sweet love story.

  • The best book ever

    By Dry4now3
    This is by far the best book I have ever read I never wanted it to stop. I waited an hour to read the end because the book ending felt like my ending. But now I am going to read On The Fence also by the same author.
  • Disappointing

    By SGidget
    I did like the main character her sarcasm is funny but this is still just a predictable romance and at $10 way overpriced. I was disappointed that Caymen ends up being rich too, just like her boyfriend. On a personal preference I don't like the abrupt stopping of a story. I want questions answered. It feels like a nice ride I am enjoying suddenly the author slams on the breaks and I jerk to a stop, very annoying. I know they are trying to leave it to my imagination but that is not what I am paying for. Endings are just as important as the beginning and the middle.
