Distance by Andrea Heltsley Publication date: September 23rd 2014 Genres: Comedy, New Adult, Romance
Lexi has sworn off guys for good. She’s always been a hot mess, but accidentally finding her boyfriend of three years cheating on her is just too much for her to handle. All she wants is to get this summer done and over with, so she and her best friend Elena can travel cross country for college. Then she will finally be free of this town, the friends that dropped her in favor of her ex, and her klutzy reputation. Lexi’s policy was working perfectly, until a guy named Mason comes to her rescue. Not once but twice in one night. For once, her mishaps have led to something good. She’s feeling things that scare her, but she’s drawn to him. Can Mason break through her walls, or will she stick to her plan and steer clear of him? This is a new adult romantic comedy. Recommended for ages 17+ due to mature content.

fell over. All I could do was brace myself for the fall, but then strong hands
caught me and set me back up. Relief spilled through me and I turned to see who
had saved me and Elena.

she’s pretty much past drunk and almost comatose. I’m not sure how I’m going to
get her to the car. I barely got her across the backyard.”
