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.
I found The Space Between to be an entertaining and fast read. I loved that this book had alternating POV chapters. Reading both Lacey and Drake's point of views really gives you a chance to know what each character is thinking and feeling. Sometimes I just wish the other characters could know each other as well as we do. I guess that wouldn't be as much fun to read though.
Lacey and Drake come from completely different worlds but they both understand that life isn't always easy or fair. After an emotional meeting and a little misunderstanding Drake and Lacey decide that they do indeed want to be together. Now they just have to find a way to make that happen when it seems like everything is against them.
When I sat down to read The Space Between I had no idea that I wouldn't be getting up again until I had finished. I was definitely captivated by the well written and realistic characters. The plot was unique in it's own way and the writing was smooth and flowed beautifully. Fans of New Adult novels will enjoy the sexy, steamy scenes and the heartwarming romance.
