Totally unexpected story, that can easily be called a sweet mix of Pretty Woman with Nicholas Sparks’ winsdom, The Space in Between is great and unique novel. Brittainy Cherry made a fantastic job at blowing my mind with a spectacular novel that easily hooked me. After several pages I knew I wouldn’t be able to stop reading until I’ve finished it.
‘Andrea. Over here is Chaos. Which we both know pretty well. And over here…” The right hand index finger flew up. “Over here is Order. I’m gonna assume both of us are pretty damn far from Order, yet we’ve already hit rock bottom Chaos. So how about we just explore the space in between the two?”
The story begins with Andrea who just lost her fiancee in tragic car accident. She can’t stop blaming herself, because she was the one driving. Now every day is painful reminder of what had happened and that Derrick is dead.
Lost and broken Andrea decides to go to New York City and live there with her friend Ladasha. To pay her bills Andrea has to strip for money.
One night she meets Cooper her friend from childhood, when he requestes a lap dance. He also is damaged by his cheating wife who’s pregnant with another man. He’s famous and rich photographer and his every move is followed by press.
They both think that sex without strings will give them closure and make them forget about their past.
“But for the first time in a long time…last night...for a small bit of a moment, I didn’t feel like constantly dying.”
The Space In Between has intriguing concept, which reminds me a little about something I could see in movie theatre on Valentine’s day. It really would be a good romantic chick flick, that girls could swoon over and guys secretly would love too.
It was extremely sweet to see how Andie and Cooper are slowly healing each other and then finally falling in love. I adored the fact that it wasn’t forced or to fast. Everything had exactly good moment to happen which made me smile. Also the fact that it’s kind of like modern, sexy Pretty Woman with addition of deep thoughts and reflections good enough to be from Sparks books made me love it.
It’s solid 4 star read!
