The Distance Between Us - Review

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.

Book Breakdown 

Caymen and her mother don't have a lot of money and Caymen had put aside her own dreams to help her mother with the doll shop. She's even decided to put off going to college for a year. Everything slowly changes when she meets Xander. The grandson of her mother's best customer. He's rich, something her mother hates with a passion. Against her morals and better judgement, Caymen gets closer to Xander and she falls for him. Though it comes to find out, he thought she had money all along because his grandmother knows a secret that Caymen's mother never told her... will this couple get a happy ending?

Well, of course there's a happy ending, that's Kasie West, her books are cute and fluffy and always make you feel good when they are over. Which I've needed a lot of this month so I am so glad that I read this one. It's not one of my favorites from this author but it's still a good read. It's still cute and I love Xander. The writing is fun and adorable as usual. It's what I've come to expect from Kasie and I like that.
