Review of "The Distance Between"

Michael Adams, a lawyer in his late twenties, has everything a guy could wish for. He’s smart, rich, good-looking and has a degree from an Ivy-League university. There is only one thing he cannot have; his stepbrother David. He’s struggled with his feelings for years and even traveled great distances to be away from David. 

Michael has tried to build a new life for himself in Paris where he is dating a handsome French guy, Remi. All the ingredients for a happy, successful life are there but Michael can’t get over his feelings for his stepbrother. After all this time David is still the man of his dreams. 

David has felt the same way about his stepbrother for a long time; he loves Michael more than anything. But Michael has been too afraid of their families’ reaction to let David into his life. He pushes his stepbrother away constantly and David throws himself into the arms of a series of wrong men. 

What an emotional roller coaster. I was sucked into the characters lives and torment immediately.
A wonderful story of two men's journey to find and acknowledge true love. 
The extreme emotional conflict of falling for someone society says you shouldn't and hurting that person to keep them at a distance. A decade of push and pull, arguments and hurt, lashing out to keep your hearts desire at arms length.
Michael was such a tormented soul, you will find yourself crying for him. He wants to push away his feelings and desires for David. Brief moments of happiness and fulfillment give you hope for a happy ever after. The extremes Michael goes to causes both men pain.
David keeps hope alive. No matter what Michael or Michael's father dish out, David takes it. He wants to be accepted and loved by the two men most important to him. David is a whistful romantic in many ways.
Taboo love stories are often written to titilate. While there are moments of desire acted upon in this story, the heart of it is about the relationship and rivalry between step siblings. Both seeking a fathers approval draw them apart, many times.
A delightful set of supporting characters. An understanding sister and brother in law bring warmth and understanding to the story. A mom/step mom who seems like the heart of the family, bringing them together for Sunday family dinners. Younger twin brothers that bind them together as a family. A host of friends and lovers, brings laughter, understanding of self and some levity to the tale.
I enjoyed this novel. Emotionally I felt as if I had been through the ringer with these characters. I would love to read more by this author. Even a follow up with the main and supporting characters would be nice. Since same sex marriages are legal in many states it would be nice to see the couples commit. Just wishful thinking. I hated that the story ended, I need more!

My name is Dominic Powers. My software engineering company, DPS, is one of the top 500 companies in the world. Conducting a search for my Personal Assistant brought an unexpected candidate straight to me.

I knew she was different as soon as she walked into my high-rise office. She exuded innocence and inexperience. Those are two things in a woman that normally don’t attract me, but I am apparently making an exception for her. She’s young and delicate – and I’m afraid she won’t make it in my world. 

But the carnal man I’ve kept hidden deep inside me says I have to try. 

She is my Sophia Vasco.

I am Her Dom.

“I knew I shouldn’t have trusted you. You told me you wanted to not let a man in and then I see this.” She flicks her hand at me with utter disgust and gets up and walks around the desk.

“It’s not what it looks like,” I managed to say before I can think this through.

“You look extremely happy in those photos,” Clara comments, not so easily swayed.

“That’s because he finally wanted to give it another go. Now that he thinks I’m away from you, Clara!” I heave on my exhale, allowing my shoulders to slump down with it. “I want him to see that I’m worthy of having. That he needs me.” I now get desperate, allow my every thought to flood from my soul. “I want him to crave me. I want him to think only about me. I want him to be consumed by thoughts of me.” I flash my gaze to Clara, settling myself. “Then, once he is where I want him, I want to break his heart.”

As the finale of my words fall free, I’m astounded at myself. I’ve just presented my boss with a callous plan to destroy a man, one that will never be enacted. In her mind, I’ll be emulating her, taking men’s hearts, playing with them before I place them on a shelf encased in glass jars. Except I won’t be doing anything of the sort because I’ll be loving Jace under the guise of getting him right where I want him.

“I want him to feel exactly like I did.” I ground my words with ounces of malice, impact it with hidden rage. “I want him devastated and I can’t do that unless he thinks I still love him with everything I have.”

Author Info:

I used to be just another Fanfiction writer! That was until one person showed real interest in my work. And then another, and then another, until I had this whole group of people reviewing like crazy and wanting original work from me. I’d spent years writing for free online, I didn’t believe I had it in me to publish something!

But I’m glad I did!! I never imagined pushing my work and striving to reach my ultimate. I never imagined I’d be the girl who started The Viper Rooms! But who am I to deny the inspiration when it hits?

I love writing, it’s a lifeline. I love creating a world that others fall into. I love having the control to make a whole new world. It’s like a dependency, an addictive one. It’s one of the things I’m extremely proud of.

As much as I complain, I love the mini dialogues that go on in my head, the plotlines that attack me when I least expect them to. The ones that jump to life at the most inappropriate times and drive me totally crazy!!

For now I split my life between writing, dreaming, working, and volunteering with children.
