Distance (Distance #1) by Andrea Heltsley (*)

Distance (A New Adult Romantic Comedy)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.


REVIEW: *

Disappointed in this one. I was hoping for an entertaining read, but instead I was bored to death. A lot of this book was just "thoughts" and those thoughts were  a lot of the same just regurgitated in a new way. I ended up skimming through most of it to finish and was disappointed in the ending as well. Looks like there is a second book to finish this out, but I have no intention of reading it. I don't really care what happens with these characters.

The characters were also much younger than I expected. I was thinking from the blub that they would be 20 somethings, not 18 or so and just graduating high school.

The writing felt stilted, dry and uninspired.
