Distance by Andrea Heltsley

Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.

“Stay away from me, Jameson; we are never ever getting back together.”

This was an interesting YA/NA contemporary romance, and I was glad with the way things ended.

“The sight of Mason took my breath away.”

I felt quite sorry for Lexi at the beginning of this book. Her boyfriend, Jameson’s, behaviour was absolutely disgusting, and just unforgivable, and I couldn’t fault her for not wanting to be in a relationship with him any longer!

“There before me, screwing Christy was my boyfriend, Jameson.”

The storyline in this was about Lexi leaving her ex-boyfriend and meeting someone new – Mason, who seemed really sweet. The course of true-love didn’t exactly run smoothly though with Jameson constantly trying to get in the way and generally behaving badly.

“I miss you, let’s meet up and talk. Christy was a mistake.”

The romance between Lexi and Mason was pretty sweet, and there were also some funny moments. I didn’t really think this book was all that explicit though. There were a few moments where sex was mentioned, but when the main event happened it was basically closed-doors sex.

“I just couldn’t get my mind off Mason.”

The ending to this was good and happy, and I was pleased with where we left things.
