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.
5 of 5 Drake and Lacey
The Space Between is one of those books that will stay with you long after you have read it. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. When I first heard about it and read the blurb I thought okay this book sounds good I will add it to my list. Then I participated in the cover reveal and I knew I had to read this book. I was not disappointed by this book. I was kinda in a funk when I picked it up and it brought my mood up so mad kudos to Victoria for doing that for me!
Lacey is an inspiring opera singer from the ghetto. She has a voice of an angel and she can sing her heart out but being from the ghetto is hard to get out. People look at you differently and do not want to give you a chance but Lacey is strong and she is waiting for her chance to make it in the real world. But for now she is content in singing in places she can get a gig and can sing her heart out. Plus Lacey has a sick mother who she is taking care of and she refuses to leave her mothers side. Then one day Lacey sees a guy checking her out and she is determined to put him in his place because he definitely does not belong on her side of the town and that is when things change for her.
Drake is a spoiled brat always getting what he wants but he is missing something in his life and he is searching for it. He feels empty and goes to the other side of town where he is not supposed to be because he is the son of a senator and lives on the North Shore. But Drake does what he wants and when he hears Lacey singing he is hooked and can't get enough of her. He is determined to get her at all costs but what he does not realize is that coming from two different worlds and backgrounds he is going to have to fight like hell to get Lacey and keep her.
This is a story about two different people and two different races coming together to become a couple. They will struggle and be tempted and pushed and pulled but in the end if they fight hard enough they can reach the one goal they both want. Will Drake be able to get Lacey? Will Lacey let Drake in? Will their worlds tear them apart? Will Drake fight for Lacey? Will Lacey fight for Drake? This is a must read and I need book two like yesterday!
