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.

The Space Between is a new adult contemporary romance.

{My Thoughts} – This book is about to main people. Lacey and Drake. They come from separate worlds and in the end are torn between what world they want to be a part of.

Lacey is a smart well rounded girl that is extremely logical and knows from hard experience what it is like to be a part of the real world. She understands that life isn’t a fairytale and that you have to work hard to get anywhere.

Drake is a spoilt rich boy that has always had everything given to him. He hasn’t been forced to grow up with mommy and daddy always helping him. He doesn’t understand the cold hard facts of life. However, throughout the book he begins to learn some of the lessons in life that his parents failed to teach him.

This book all and all was alright. I struggled through the first 29 chapter because it was a bit boring to me. It picked up a lot after that point. It’s a well written book, I just think the beginning chapters could have had more to them, I suppose is what I am trying to say.
