My Thoughts:

First off the title is a little misleading the distance between us describes the two different social status of the two character and no real distance. The book is based in a small town where Caymen and her mom own a failing doll business and then there’s Xander who’s dad became rich for going in the hotel business. They meeting was by chance thanks to a special doll for a birthday and since then the two became friends.

The thing I liked most about this book is the relationship between the two main characters Xander and Caymen. Not exactly for the romance itself, but the little things they did. For example Xander brings Caymen hot chocolate almost everyday and before he gives it to her he takes a sip. I don’t know why I liked those little parts but it was sweet. Another thing the quest itself was interesting they went to different places trying to figure out what they want to do for college. Because lets be honest some of us don’t know what we’re supposed to do. Me included. Another aspect in the book was family and it was mainly between Caymen and her mom. Her mom has never been a fan of rich people because Caymen’s dad was and left her when she was pregnant. However as the story progress you learn that Caymen’s mom has been keeping secrets about her father and her own background.

I flew through this book in a night though a night and loved all of it and really want to read more of Kasie West books because she does really good with the romance built up and comedy. If you can’t tell by my review I highly recommend this for any contemporary lovers.
