  1. 3.5 starsI definitely need a bit of self berating right now.I put off reading this book for so long and that because I was certain it would fall into my heap of a pile of ever growing clich d love stories read.But it didn t Well it didn t fall that far from said pile, but what counts is where it landed in the end and that is in my guilty pleasure pile.That s right, Kasie West is one hell of a guilty pleasure writer for me.Truth be told, the skeleton of her novels is always a little overused For [...]

  2. You hear that That s the sound of my writing down this author s name So that I can avoid all of her books in the future You re witty, Kasie West I ll give you that.It s too bad you don t know how to write a book, though, isn t it Because if you did know how to write a book you would know that the romance in said book shouldn t be mediocre And that the storyline shouldn t be half assed So you either don t know how to write a book Or you suck at it.I ll let you choose.

  3. Actual rating 4.5That s it Kasie West is now one of my new favorite authors After being completely swept off my feet by Pivot Point, West has once again warmed my heart with so many cute moments She continuously manages to create down to earth, relatable characters and all around fun books.The Distance Between Us follows Caymen Meyers, a girl who has certain opinions about rich people thanks to her mother s clear disdain Her mom has raised her to think very negatively about the Haves verses the [...]

  4. If you go into a normal young adult romance book you expect this This book is not that It s of this The main character of this book is actually very like able Caymen is snarky and outspoken Even when cute boys are involved gasp She is helping her mom out in her mom s doll shop Umm s like this She works all the hours she can spare for her mom and plans on putting off college for awhile because she wants to make sure her mom will be okay She doesn t party She does not fall into insta love.She do [...]

  5. I absolutely loved this To the point where I stayed up until past 4 am to finish this Yes, I loved this THAT much And you will too hopefully.This is perfect considering this is EXACTLY what happened to me.I tried so hard to write a coherent review But after lots of deleted drafts, I ll just leave you with a list Caymen is exceptionally good at sarcasm Total girl crush Xander is a wonderful love interest His banter with Caymen is oh so cute Xander is cute The characters Caymen especially super re [...]

  6. Feelings can be the most costly thing in the universe The cover and the premise of this book somewhat deceived me Ha Yes, it was cute and adorable Funny, even But that s not just about it My expectations were different Caymen Meyers is a teenage girl who works for her mom s doll store One day a rich and cute guy named Xander Spence comes over to their store to buy a doll for her grandma Because he obviously has the air of wealth, Caymen sees him as just another one of those spoiled, rich kids wh [...]

  7. I can t breathe for a moment, and then all I want to do is breathe him in Eat, sleep, and drink Xander Spence Ever since I read On the Fence, I was intrigued by her writing I wanted to read of it after reading On the Fence, so I had to pick this one up as well.I was glad this book didn t completely deal with a lot of family drama or relationship issues like breaking up and then getting back together, only ending up repeating the process Instead, it dealt with health issues, debts, family issues [...]

  9. REREADI enjoyed it even the second time around The things that bothered me the first time I read it were no longer an issue to me Xander has become adorable and pleasing in my eyes while Caymen s sarcasm is clearly topnotch I have completely forgotten about Mason though I couldn t even remember that there was another guy and a potential love interest at that in the story The beckoning gesture, I still vividly remember though Lol This is why rereading is the best So I guess my old review still [...]

  10. Pretty in Pink meets Pride and Prejudice That s the best explanation of this book I ve seen so far Kasie West has done it again I thought I was a fan of her writing after I read Pivot Point After reading The Distance Between Us I may have escalated to fangirl This book made me all kinds of happy First reason that cover I love love it Caymen Meyers lives with her single mother and learned early on that the rich are very different than her Working the register at her mother s doll shop, she s enco [...]

  11. 2.5 starsI just want to give a warning that this review was written after consuming copious amounts of Jack Daniels so I apologize in advance if it make NO SENSE This book was not the most horrific thing I have ever read so there is that I honestly enjoyed it to an extent But it was not without it s problems.This was my second attempt at a Kasie West book and I have to say I was mildly disappointed yet again On the one hand, I enjoyed this book a lot than I enjoyed By Your Side See Review HERE [...]


  13. It s so predictable and so convenient but also so adorable and so addicting and just amazing I loved it so much Xander is bae Also so respectful I love everything I HAD to read this book in one day HAD TO.

  14. Everyone, it s official I am in love with Kasie West s writing.This is probably one of the cutest contemporary books I ve read all year Okay, I didn t love it as much as I loved The Fill In Boyfriend, but that doesn t stop it from being up there The story revolves around a girl named Caymen Caymen doesn t exactly come from the richest of families, so she does all that she can to help her mother out, which includes working a doll store Let s just say, this isn t Caymen s passion in life, rather t [...]

  16. 4.25 STARS Ahhh, this is SO CUTE I already read The Fill In Boyfriend before and I thought that that was going to be my favorite Kasie West book, but boy was I wrong because I clearly hadn t read this one yet I m such a sucker for cute romance novels these days The type where you don t have to think too hard, just the sit back and enjoy the ride kind of stories This one is a perfect example It might be a bit predictable but it s just so adorable mixed with just the right amount of humor, I could [...]

  17. The verdict 3.75 stars.Because I remain professional at all times, I should say that I m docking a quarter star because I struggled a bit with the beginning and an entire star because I had a whole set of problems with the end However, the official reason is and will always be Eeeerrrhh It s just I can t HUH I m legitimately concerned about this There s a reason it s called warme chocolademelk hot chocolate milk in Dutch As a virtual ambassador for the land of chocolate, I feel it is my duty to [...]

  19. This is my first Kasie West book, but sincerely, it wasn t for me at allI won t lose your time very much, because I don t have a lot to say read the book and see it for yourself.Caymen is your average girl next door, living with her mother in an apartment right on top of their doll shop Yes, she sells dolls, but deep inside she is not satisfied with this life, wanting to do other things, but right in this moment, she doesn t have a certain answer to her future She chooses the save way momentaril [...]

  20. Buddy read with Maymay, who also recommended this 3.5This buddy read was pretty much a spontaneous one I was having a crisis over my slump which has been going on for a week and a half now and then May recommended I try out this one and she reread it with me Having read PS I Like You earlier this year, I had high hopes a Kasie West book would fix my slump I think it did His eyes are so intense I want to look away or never look away, I can t decide The Distance Between Us is not as good as PS I [...]

  21.

  22. Feelings can be the most costly thing in the universe This was an amazingly short, cute and absolutely awesomely sarcastic story Really enjoyed reading this one Literally took me less than 6hours to finish the book Loved the writing style, characters, plot, and the ending the ending was my favorite part Caymen, she was priceless, absolutely loved her wit and personality Xander, I was really really drawn to him from the get go, he was unique and like a breath of fresh air honestly Skye, was bubbl [...]

  23. My good bud Flannery told me about this book About how funny and cute and cool it was It s a contemporary YA so it practically preordered itself for me.I started it the day my postie left it in my mail box I finished it that same night, well, 4am in the morning reading into the squeaky hours of the night is one of my absolute favourite activities, but only the best books can take me there.The Distance Between Us is so much what I love about YA It s smiley and fun and funny and has this ridiculou [...]

  24. Tired after a full day work Fighting the flu or whatever annoying winter disease Feel like your attention span is no than several minutes Your reading time is shrinking away to nothing Need to read a fluffy light book that won t ask you too much focus I ve got what you need Is that your subtle way of saying you missed me last week I ve missed hot chocolate I just think of you as the guy who brings it to me Sometimes I forget your name and call you hot chocolate guy Sean raises one eyebrow when [...]

  25. plot 12 20characters 14 20creativity 16 20writing 16 20pace 7 10ending 8 10 73 100 C Okay first this book wasn t all that bad It was unexpected especially those last few chapters but everything else was a bit confusing and not connected very well It seemed like they were each separate events being played instead of them each being woven together in a story This book is a crazy quick read for me and I m sure it would be for anyone I read it in on sitting It is a great summer read, but as you can [...]

  26. This is my 3rd book of Kasie West,and I think she is now,one of my favorite authors,because I do enjoy her writing style and I want to thank my buddy,NEIL for introducing this author to me This book is such an easy,very relaxing read The story though is a bit predictable,but it was interesting because I enjoyed the main characters Caymen and Xander development I loved the witty,sarcastic humor of Caymen,and the way she interacts with people cracks me up all the time.Xander,the charming rich boy [...]

  27. Never were the words quick and feel good deserved I needed just that Is that your subtle way of saying you missed me last week I ve missed my hot chocolate I just think of you as the guy who brings it to me Sometimes I forget your name and call you hot chocolate guy Ten points for Caymen s sarcasm, because let s be honest, that accounts for 80% of the reason why this book is worth reading The Distance Between Us is, unsurprisingly, a little naive and a little simplistic, a little dependent on a [...]

  28. The Girl HAS Sarcasm down to an art As is, said fact was enough to have me than like the girl There s though like her being loyal and an all around good girl though not too goody goody to have her seeming stick in the mud The Guy IS the definition of cool And smooth What with the perceived beckoning and all, yes Have I mentioned smooth Between them IS gap made wider then wider still by a number of things like a mothers and their secrets, b these kids and their assumptions PLUS a whole lot of o [...]

  29. Impromptu buddy read with the cutest, Jia This book is SO FRICKEN CUTE.The first time I read this I gave it 5 stars instantly but now that I m rereading it, I ve noticed A LOT flaws than my fetus self who had no standards Dropping this to a 3 is painful for me but if somehow by a GREAT miracle half stars were to appear, I would give it a confident 3.5 stars but alas I cannot so here we are.If we re judging by cuteness, this wins that award for the next ten years.Hot chocolateMuffins Caymen cute [...]
