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.
Chicago native Lacey has dreams of the opera, but life has its obstacles. Lacey has come to know her hardships as part of living in the real world and accepts them fully. When Lacey meets the intense and invigorating Drake, a fire is lit inside her, unleashing those dreams again.
Two paths that should have never crossed prove to create the exact pairing the other needs. But when their worlds take time to catch up, everything they have is tested. Finding the space between the two sides that challenge them will be hard, but it’s the only place that will keep them together.
The Space Between is a new adult contemporary romance.
EXCERPT
As I watched her a voice perked my ears, distracting me. It wasn’t just a voice, though. Someone was singing, and they were doing it beautifully.
I walked over to the panoramic view. I’d heard these words before. After all, I had seen the show, but the actress singing then wasn’t like this. And hearing this voice, I discovered the one I’d first heard didn’t do the song justice.
Taking a seat, I watched the girl. Dressed in a long, pink ball gown, she gazed at the crowd during her song. Even from far away, I could still study every element of her. Sparkling doe eyes, rich caramel skin, and chocolate-colored curls that hinted a hazel coloring with the way the spotlight shined on her. She wore a soft pink flower in her hair. The small touch complemented her well.
The words of her song wisped about the room; her voice like an angel.
“Who’s that girl?” I didn’t really know to whom I asked my question. I didn’t really care. I just wanted an answer.
“That’s what I was trying to tell you, Derrick.” Margot sat next to me. “The lead fell ill, and she got into the show.”
Derrick came up on my other side. Crossing his arms, he nodded his head. “Go ‘cus.”
I glanced up at him. “Your cousin?”
“Yep. Great, isn’t she?”
I gazed back as she ended her song. The audience cheered, then gave her a standing ovation.
“Exquisite,” I said, staring at her as she bowed. “What’s her name?”
“Lacey,” Derrick said.
A small smile formed in the corner of my mouth.
