About the book: When Drake started the night at his father’s campaign fundraiser, he never imagined he’d end it being conned into buying drugs on the West Side. Losing high-stakes poker has its consequences, but he’d repeatedly face them just to hear Lacey Douglas sing. Drake sees Lacey light up the stage, and he has to have her. But his intentions for being on her side of town turn out to be the reason he can’t.
Chicago native Lacey has dreams of the opera, but life has its obstacles. Lacey has come to know her hardships as part of living in the real world and accepts them fully. When Lacey meets the intense and invigorating Drake, a fire is lit inside her, unleashing those dreams again.
Two paths that should have never crossed prove to create the exact pairing the other needs. But when their worlds take time to catch up, everything they have is tested. Finding the space between the two sides that challenge them will be hard, but it’s the only place that will keep them together.
The Space Between is a new adult contemporary romance.
The Space Between
Lacey and Drake come from totally different backgrounds –both ethnically and financially. Due to their dissimilar backgrounds they initially struggle to connect. But then somehow, despite these differences, they find a way to come together.
I really liked reading both of their points of view and felt like I really got to know them throughout the novel.
I loved Drakes sense of humor and sarcasm – (a few laugh out loud moments) and I liked how he coped with the “facts of life”. I loved Lacey’s determination and her attitude of nothing is going to get her down.
Slow moving first half but then watch out, you wont be able to put it down.
