Publisher's Summary

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 that he seems to be one of the first people who actually gets her, she's smart enough to know that 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 loyalty and attentiveness 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 she close the distance between them?

cute story!

I listened to this in one day and couldn't put it down. Great story and character building with some unexpected twists, mature teens, a sweet PG love story and a happy ending.

A Homage to Gilmore Girls

Wow! I thoroughly enjoyed The Distance Between Us! First of all, this has ‘fanfic’ written all over it. As a massive Gilmore Girls fangirl myself, this actually made me happier rather than upset, so it was a complete guilty pleasure!

*Sheepishly grins from ear to ear*

Caymen (Rory) - is extremely close with her mom, but things have been stressful financially lately (always). She attends the local public school and has been taught that the rich are a certain breed you don’t want to get messed up with. She’s studious and into STEM, particularly on the path for crime scene investigation, but she plans to defer to help out her mom.

Xander (Logan) - is the filthy rich love interest that Caymen begins to hang out with behind her disapproving mom’s back. He’s being groomed to take over his father’s hotel dynasty in after college, which of course he’s trying to rebel against. He attends the exclusively rich private school named after his Grandmother.

Skye (Lane Kim) - is the amazing best friend who is dating a band guy and attends all of his gigs. I absolutely love her!!!

Susan (Lorelai) - had Caymen out of wedlock in her teens and the baby daddy left her to fend for herself. Her parents disowned her, but her baby daddy’s parents gave her guilt money to start up a business. She now lives a stressed life of trying to make ends meet in her porcelain doll shop that she lives above in a tiny apartment with her daughter.

Vivian (Emily) and Sean (Richard) - are not in the picture until later on as they disowned their pregnant teenage daughter. They haven’t seen their granddaughter for her entire life, but step up in a well intentioned way before it’s too late.

Unfortuately all the other amazing characters as well as copious amount of coffee are missing... but then again it was 300+ pages, not 7 seasons :D

Down to earth story

I found this to be a great story. It is filled with many different emotions and the writer did a great job creating the characters. It has a lot of funny moments and I love the dry humor of the main character. All this mixed with the fact that it was with the romance package on audible made it worth the listen.

Amazing

I love it, didn't see some of the stuff coming. Zander sounds like a dream and Cayman is so great with her dry witt.
