The Space Between Us by Anie Michaels

They always belonged to each other but even a fated love can be fractured.

Shy, artistic, and withdrawn 11-year-old Charlie McBride tries to get her footing as she copes with the loss of her mother, the move to a new town, and starting a new school. Asher Carmichael steps into her life, provides a steadfast friendship that offers her protection to grow into a beautiful, young woman. As years pass, their friendship evolves into a passionate first love neither one of them can deny. Together they explore a new relationship filled with all the butterflies and heartache expected as two young adults navigate sex, love, and trust.

One fateful night, a painful mistake leads to cataclysmic results, setting the lovers on separate paths. Charlie is too hurt to forgive and Asher has never been so lost without his Charlie. Years pass. Hearts remain broken. Neither one can forget their first love or overcome the space between them.

 5 STARS!!!!!

I absolutely loved this book!! I love how the author takes you through the life of Asher and Charlie, not just one time period. You start out seeing how Asher comes to Charlie’s rescue when they are in the 5th grade. At the same time, you get to meet the supporting character, Reeve. We quickly learn that Charlie recently moved to a new town after the death of her mother from cancer. The story jumps to the three kids in high school. This is where we see the fire burning between Asher and Charlie start, only Charlie doesn’t see it. One of my favorite scenes in the school dance. Asher is trying to be so coy yet at the same time he is yelling (figuratively) at Charlie about his feelings.

Ahh, sweet high school love! The author did an awesome job of pulling you into their budding relationship. It made me yearn for those first sweet touches and gentle kisses of a new relationship. I could feel the butterflies in my own stomach as Asher and Charlie shared their first kiss.

We see their relationship develop as they began to explore one another and before we know the two young love birds are going away to college. Once in college things erupt however. Although we have already fallen in love with Asher, we fall again once we see how kind his heart is after Reeve is fallen victim in a devastating situation. They we get to hate Asher for a little bit as him and Charlie experience their first real fight. But don’t worry, we fall back in love with Asher soon enough!

Before we know what is happening, the young sweet couple is in their early 30’s. Asher is a lawyer and Charlie an artist. And this my lovely readers, is where I end. The last several chapters will tear you apart, they will make you cry with sadness and jump for joy because there can never be a Happily Ever After without a little drama! The author does a marvelous job of bringing the reader (as well as Asher) back to the start and reminding us all why we love Charlie and what true love really is. So rest assure that this book with NOT leave you hanging!!

Anie Michaels started writing her first book in June of 2013 and since has managed to make it a full-time career. She spends her days in coffee shops imagining the lives of her fictional characters and then goes home to be a mother and wife; her other full-time career. Anie lives in Portland, Oregon, where some of her books are set, and wouldn't live anywhere else. When she isn't writing or taking care of her small children she spends her free time with her close friends and family. She loves beer and wine (a requirement went living in Oregon), and wishes she had more time for television because sometimes it's nice to look at attractive men instead of imagining them all the time.
