Audiobook Review: The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

24 December, 2018 / 6 Comments

I’ve read a few of Kasie West’s books over the years and have enjoyed most of them. She is a great storyteller. It’s always easy to become captivated by her stories and connect with her characters.

This book was no different. Both Caymen and Xander were likeable and relatable and I had no trouble getting into their story. While the story was a bit predictable, it was still enjoyable.

If you’ve read Kasie West’s YA Contemporary Romances in the past, then you know her style, and this book follows that same style. The Distance Between Us is another cute little YA Romance, easy to get into, a quick and easy read, light and fluffy.

I will say, though, that I think I prefer reading Kasie West’s books over listening to them. I listened to an audio book version of this one. It was still good, but I’m not sure – I just think I would have liked it better in the written form.

Best Aspect: Captivity

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers studies the rich like her own personal science experiment, and after years of observation she’s pretty sure they’re only good for one thing—spending money on useless stuff, like the porcelain dolls in her mother’s shop.

So when Xander Spence walks into the store to pick up a doll for his grandmother, it only takes one glance for Caymen to figure out he’s oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and that he’s 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 Xander keeps coming around, despite her best efforts to scare him off. And much to her dismay, she’s beginning to enjoy his company.

She knows her mom can’t find out—she wouldn’t approve. She’d much rather Caymen hang out with the local rocker who hasn’t been raised by money. 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. And that Xander’s not the only one she should’ve been worried about.

      Maybe! Sometimes audiobooks are like that for me, though. I find I have a tougher time getting into audiobooks than actually reading a book, so it could just be me too. Though, if it’s really good, I don’t have a difficult time at all!

  1. Ooh, I need to try Kasie West and have been meaning to do so for a while now DD: I even have a book or two of hers on my Kindle and I want to fall in love with her writing too. I am glad you enjoyed listening to this one so much ^.^

      I would recommend her books! My fave of hers would have to be Pivot Point, though, which is a different genre than all her others!
