Book Review: The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

The book might have the most cooked up ending to it but otherwise it’s a medium level romance without being much mushy and cheesy. In fact even for those who are not much of a romance fan, this can be a try-once book.

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West Official Synopsis

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.

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West RWAT Take

I don’t know whether it’s me or it is an actual case scenario with the book that I kind of found the romance almost to nil. I am not sure whether it was intentional by the author or something that eventually ended up like that

The book kick starts nicely and you can see a build of a good relationship and romance. By half way suddenly the things escalate a little too quickly and without warning, It gets so evident that the author is running out of time and wants to wrap up the book at the earliest. That’s the reason why the ending may appear a bit overly cooked


I personally felt that there was more going for the book before it was very rudely ended in a haste. Everything sort of magically fell into place and a little too perfectly.
