really liked it


Across The Distance by Marie Meyer is a sweet story of friends to lovers. Two characters who share a wonderful connection and the friendship they have is tested by distance.

Jillian has been dealt a pretty tough hand in her young life. Facing the devastation every day of her parents deaths, to growing up under the care of her grandparents and then the older she gets, living with her cold hearted sister, who ultimately blames Jillian for the cause of their parents death. Jillian has learnt to not get her sister fired up, just so she can have an easy life.
Jillian has one AMAZING person in her life who has always been by her side, her best friend Griffin. He is the neighbour who blessed her with happiness in her darkest times, he is fiercely protective of Jillian and wants to see her shine.
Jillian is attending college hundreds of miles away. She is deeply saddened that she has to leave Griffin, and is anxious over how it will affect their bond and connection!
I'm not going to spoil any more of the storyline of this book, because I feel nobody reads the same book. But this sweet YA/NA novel was an absolute delight to read. It is fresh, but also has a lot of depth within the storyline.
At times, I found Jillian a little frustrating, but I could understand WHY at times she was sheltered. Griffin was a beautiful Male lead, his strength, heart and protectiveness really was a beautiful thing to read.
The bond Jillian and Griffin shared was so real, and from the very first chapter, you cannot wait for them both to take that next step, together.
For those who love fast paced, sweet, friends to lovers books, without the angst..... you will LOVE this!
