The distance between us by Kasie West

    Money can’t buy a good first impression.

Seventeen year old Caymen Meyers learned 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 is 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 is smart enough to know his interest won’t last.  Because if there is one thing she has learned from her mother’s warnings, it is that the rich have a short attention span.  But just when Xander’s loyalty and attentiveness are about to convince Caymen that being rich is not a charater flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she had ever realised.  With some many obstacles standing in their way, can she close the distance between them?
