No one writes like Brittainy C Cherry. The Space in Between is her debut novel and for some reason, I’d not gotten to it. I made sure to change that. Although I’ve seen a lot of growth in B Cherry’s books over the years, this was still a strongly written debut. It still made me love, made me smile, and made me feel- just like I always expect to when reading her books.

Andrea’s story isn’t always easy to read. She’s having a tough time with life. After losing her fiancee just days befor

4.5 heartwarming, Soda Pop-lovin' STARS.

The Space in Between is a beautiful and touching story that, because of the author's unique writing style, managed to stand out from many other contemporary romance novels that I've recently read. It's a friends to lovers story or rather a friends-with-benefits to lovers story that has some ups and downs; there are heartbreaking and sad moments but in the end it will leave you with a happy smile on your face once you've finished it.

Life can be very unfair to some people.One moment you have everything -a succesful job,someone who loves you,a happy life- and the next one you have nothing.It's funny how you can lose everything in a heartbeat.

Our MC Andrea Evans used to be happy once but this person is gone now and replaced by a guilty and traumatized version of herself.She is still trying to recover from her fiancée's (view spoiler) and she is doing her best to accept that her dancing career is over.Maki

Brittainy Cherry made a fantastic job at blowing my mind with a spectacular novel that easily hooked me. After several pages I knew I wouldn’t be able to stop reading until I’ve finished it.

I have no idea why I took so long to read this book. After reading prior releases and absolutely loving them, this should have been moved to the top of the list a long time ago. But better late than never I guess.

So the story of Cooper and Andrea begins in dueling POVs. Two characters both experiencing their own tragic ends to relationships. Andrea, who finds herself waking up in a hospital just days before she was going to be married, now just days away from the funeral instead. Cooper who find

I had such a great time writing this novel! I hope you all enjoy! Below is an excerpt from The Space In Between! Enjoy :)


Chapter One

Three days, five hours, and twenty-two minutes.

Mom kept crying. Her puffy eyes hadn’t stopped swelling for a few hours now and she could hardly breathe. I told her it was all right, but she kept hugging me, rubbing my hands in hers. She said that she would never understand why these kinds of things would happen to people, but God was always in contro

To escape her painful memories, Andrea left her small home town where everything reminded her of her dead fiancé.

Cooper, emotionally messed up famous photographer trying to get over the fact that his wife cheated on him.

Two broken people, one rule. Friends with benefits looking for escape from sorrowful reality.

"No strings. No commitment."

But what happens when love complicates things?

Great writing, interesting plotline. I liked the way author combined serious topics with some funny situations

Interesting blurb.
Poor execution sent me to IDC territory halfway through the book and in the end, I had no sympathy for Andrea character and couldn't stand her grumpy/irrational behavior whatsoever.

Brittainy C. Cherry does it again! I just don't know how she can pull it off and pull me in every single time.

In New York Cooper Davidson is a reality TV star worth millions, but he has suffered a huge betrayal. Andrea Evans is in Wisconsin but she's trying to heal from a tragedy so she goes to New York to hopefully heal from her pain. The two people meet here under th

This one was a little over-the-top to be believable - not the story itself, but the secondary characters.

- Andrea. Over here is Chaos. Which we both know pretty well. And over here... - The right hand index finger flew up. - Over here is Order. I'm gonna assume both of us are pretty damn far from Order, yet we've already hit rock bottom Chaos. So how about we just explore the space in between the two?

Soda may quench your thirst, its fizzy and can tickle.....your nose ;) and if you shake it enough it will eventually com bust. And that’s the type of relationship Andrea and Cooper have. They both agree it’s the best thing they can have between the two of them especially with all the crap going on around them.

Both of their hearts need mending but those cracks that are present slowly soak in love and compassion from one another. Its so unexpected and so they fight it.

***2 STARS***

Sadly, this one just did not do it for me. I skipped half of it and went straight to the ending just to see how it ended. I hate this because I actually liked the characters and I am a sucker for the I save you/you save me stories. There was absolutely no connection made with the characters for me. If I can't get myself emotionally involved then I can't get into the read. I'm sad because I was actually looking forward to this one. It has such great reviews. Actually, I think I'm the

It has been a long time since I've read a book to where I can really relate to the female character. I seriously felt I was reading about my past. It was truly awesome. I laughed, I cried, and I think I even threw things and cussed out the wall... This book is simply fabulous!

Brittainy C. Cherry has given us a beautiful and emotional book. A wonderful debut novel.

Andrea who had her future in place for many years, and then the future was ripped away from her. She decides she needs a change and packs up and moves to a different state with her best friend. When someone is so hurt and destroyed they do ANYTHING to make a change, and she does just that. She is broken and wants a different outlook, so she changes from the person she was to this new person.

The Space in Between, Brittainy Cherry debut novel, was released a few days ago and the fact that this unknown author’s book had many positive reviews in such a short time, caught my attention and made me want to read it as soon as possible. Again, without reading synopsis, I was surprised.

Finally, a decent cover. Beyond decent! Sublime. I’m really tired of covers with faces or bodies touching, almost naked and very appealing. And it's good when the wrapper is consistent with what we read. The d

It has been an awfully long time since I read a romance novel let alone one that made me smile, cry and giggle like a little girl. This book caught my attention within the first couple of sentences and had me going through emotions that I could not hold in. It is about the loss of love and how that loss affects two people. The fear that we often encounter when unsure how our lives will ever be able to move forward and how things wi

The space in between amazing and awesome!

Brittainy Cherry has produced a fantastic debut novel. The Space in Between had me hooked from its powerful opening page and kept me gripped in the story of Andrea and Cooper until the oh-so-satisfying ending.

I loved the film references, the contrast between ‘home’ and New York…and Coop. He is a great male lead: sexy, caring and with a few troubles of his own. And did I mention sexy?!

But, more than the above, the novel deals with grief and the impact it
