The Distance Between Us - Kasie West

Titel: The Distance Between Us
Författare: Kasie West
Serie: -
Sidor: 312

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers learned early that the rich are not to be trusted. And after years of studying them from behind the cash register of her mom's porcelain doll shop, she has seen nothing to prove otherwise. 
Enter Xander Spence - he's tall, handsome, and oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and the fact he seems to be 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 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. With so many obstacles standing in their way, can they close the distance to each other?

Jag läste nyligen Kasie Wests debutbok, Pivot Point, och absolut älskade den, så naturligtvis ville jag även läsa hennes andra bok, The Distance Between Us. TDBU är en väldigt charmig och mysig bok. Jag tyckte mycket om handlingen och detta är helt klart en av de bästa contemporary böcker jag läst.

Bokens starkaste sida är dock karaktärerna, i synnerhet Caymen. Jag föll direkt för Caymens väldigt torra humor och älskade hennes sarkastiska kommentarer. Jag gillade även Xander, han var väldigt charmig och jag älskade kemin mellan honom och Caymen.

Jag rekommenderar verkligen The Distance Between Us till er som gillar contemporary och uppskattar sarkasm. Kasie West har bevisat för mig att hon är en författare att hålla koll på, och jag kan med allra största säkerhet säga att jag vill läsa allt hon skriver.


“A lot of people don’t get my humor. My mom calls it dry humor. I think that means “not funny,” but it also means I’m the only one who ever knows it’s a joke.” 

“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.” 

“So Caymen..."
"So, Xander..."
"Like the islands."
"Your name. Caymen. Like the Cayman Islands. Is that your mom's favourite place to visit or something?"
"No, it's her third favourite place. I have an older brother named Paris and an older sister named Sydney."
"Wow." He opens the bag, takes out a muffin, and hands it to me. The top glistens with sprinkled sugar. "Really?"
I gently unwrap it. "No.”
