BOOK TOUR GUEST POST & GIVEAWAY: The Space Between by Victoria Smith
The Space Between
byVictoria H. Smith
New Adult Contemporary
Synopsis: 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.
My Three Favorite Quotes from THE SPACE BETWEEN
By Victoria H. Smith
“Lacing my fingers through his, I studied them. His fingers were so much longer than mine, and I envisioned what those fingers could do. And how long they would take to do it before they sent me over the edge.” – Lacey
While writing THE SPACE BETWEEN, I quickly discovered I had quite the fascination with Drake’s hands. There is just something about a guy with big hands and long fingers that is just oh-so-swoony. I think that’s why this is one of my faves.
“This guy in front of me was lost. In his life he was missing something and somehow ended up on my side of town.” – Lacey
This quote really stands out to me because it’s the first time Lacey realizes that there is more to Drake than meets the eye. She finally opens her eyes and sees. Because she does, she and Drake can really connect on a deeper level.
“She was exactly what I needed. Not just something different than what I was used to. She was something of value. She was someone to be valued who had my complete respect.” – Drake
I call this one Drake’s epiphany. For the first time in his life, he starts thinking about someone on a deeper level. His world is no longer just about him. He has allowed himself to care about someone else other than himself. This section really signifies his growth in the novel.
