Product description

Product Description

They always belonged to each other but even a fated love can be fractured.

Shy, artistic, and withdrawn 11-year-old Charlie McBride tries to get her footing as she copes with the loss of her mother, the move to a new town, and starting a new school. Asher Carmichael steps into her life, provides a steadfast friendship that offers her protection to grow into a beautiful, young woman. As years pass, their friendship evolves into a passionate first love neither one of them can deny. Together they explore a new relationship filled with all the butterflies and heartache expected as two young adults navigate sex, love, and trust.

One fateful night, a painful mistake leads to cataclysmic results, setting the lovers on separate paths. Charlie is too hurt to forgive and Asher has never been so lost without his Charlie. Years pass. Hearts remain broken. Neither one can forget their first love or overcome the space between them.

A stand alone novel. Contains sexually explicit language and other mature content. Readers should be 18 or older.

"The Space Between Us is a stirring story of growing up, maturing, first love, loss, and second chances. Nothing would make me happier than to hear about a follow up to this story. Although I have no complaints about the story and its ending, I feel like there is so much more in store for Charlie and Asher and I would just love to read what's next for these two. This may have been my first Anie Michaels novel, but I know for a fact that it will not be the last." ~ Michelle, Nose Stuck in a Book

"The Space Between Us is a fantastic novel, told over time- with a well thought out plot and lovable characters- and interesting secondary characters as well." ~ Allison East, Three Chicks and Their Books

This book was just ok for me the first half was perfect I could feel something building up some drama about to explode and then it happened and I was shocked Asher went from Hero to Zero in 0.60 seconds I was left reeling thinking this character was amazing and then BOOM he's the biggest douche ever def 360 turn the second half was just horrible for me I was heartbroken for Charlie and she just couldn't recover and what happened to the dad's girlfriend no mention of her timeline jumped from college to 13 years later wait what yup just jumped so I was not prepared for the long separation and no epilogue not cool it was a HEA in the end but......

Once again Anie has sucked you in, ripped your heart out and then piece by piece puts in back together again (she even made me cry, damn you Anie)
The story of Asher and Charlie is heartbreakingly beautiful. Yes they both have their floors but together they sizzle and bring a smile to your face.
I will say it could have done with a epilogue so you can see how them in the future BUT this is still a great read.

3.0 out of 5 stars terrific start, poor end 4 August 2014
By nara - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book started off well, but then got lost somewhere in the middle, and just fizzled out at the end. The things that bothered me: the hero even at 15 talks and feels like a 35 year old. It's a bit difficult to believe all the stuff he does for the h and all the things he says. But at 19, he reacts like a toddler. The other thing was the big betrayal. I don't want to give it away but basically it was a very silly plot device, whose resolution was poorly conceived. Third, the decade long separation where the two know absolutely nothing about each other despite the H being in constant touch with the h's father. Nothing slips out in casual conversation over a 13 year period? Fourth - insta love again after 13 years when neither made the slightest effort to track down the other despite being hopelessly in love still with each other - not credible. So all in all this story could have been quite good but ended up not living up to its initial promise.

1.0 out of 5 stars Spoilers in my review because this story was awful!!! 2 September 2014
By ecole - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Warning - this review contains spoilers, only because this book annoyed me so much I want to warn other readers!!!!
Charlie and Asher basically grow up as best friends, which morphed into love in high school. Asher is constantly proclaiming his devotion to her, how she's it for him, he doesn't want anyone else, they're going to build a life together blah blah blah. They get to college and Charlie finds out she's pregnant. How does Asher react? Doesn't want anything to do with her anymore. Not only that but he tells her to "get rid of it" and wants to know how the pregnancy even happened in the first place. Charlie and her BFF call and text Asher for weeks but he's too busy with his new party life at the frat house to respond. When Charlie starts to have a miscarriage and is spewing blood all over the place, she makes her BFF stop by the frat house before going to the emergency room because she's SURE Asher will relent and go with her for support. Instead, with blood dripping down her legs, she walks in on him in his room with a naked girl on top of him.
After her miscarriage Charlie moves back home with her Dad to try to rebuild her life. Asher tried to call her and her Dad told him to leave her alone to heal. Guess he only needed to be told once because he didn't try to contact her again but instead cozied up to Charlie's Dad after she left town. Supposedly it was because Asher wanted any connection he could have to Charlie, even though Charlie's Dad never once talked about her to Asher. Fast forward several years to Charlie living in New York with a boyfriend and Asher a lawyer in their hometown. For some reason, Charlie's Dad dies of cancer without her even knowing he had it, even though they were close. Asher of course is the one to be handling his affairs. They have contact and Charlie is (in my opinion) incredibly stupid for wanting to "just be friends" with him again. Of course NOW he wants to cry and commiserate over the loss of their babies. He also blames her for some of their problems because she "ran away" after the miscarriage. Ugh. This book was bad from about the 4th chapter but when it got to this point I just felt like punching Asher right you-know-where! Maybe if he lost his baby-making abilities he wouldn't have so many hard decisions to make.
I'm sure you can tell how the story ended. I wish I had read my review before I bought the book so I could have saved myself $3!

3.0 out of 5 stars Lost me at part three... 16 August 2014
By Becky Loves 2 Read - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is told in three parts. It follows the characters and their story from childhood to adults. I loved the flow of the story and the friends to lovers storyline. Or at least I did up until the last part of their story.

I understand the need to have characters grow and develop as their story progresses. It is actually what I love about stories such as this one where we begin with them as young children and getting to see them grow and find their way as teens and then adults. But when you change everything that I have come to love about a character, then I have an issue.

Charlie suffers through something at the end of part two of this book that naturally is expected to affect in her in some major ways. But I don't agree with where the author took the changes. They were too extreme. She was no longer the character I had come to love. There was nothing left of who she had been. I wish I could have seen some of that Charlie I saw in parts one and two shining through. But unfortunately, I didn't.

While this particular book didn't play out as I would have liked, I did love the author's writing style. She easily pulled me into Charlie and Asher's story from the beginning. I will definitely be looking to pick up her other books!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings but worthy read 31 March 2015
By Eggs - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading two thirds of this book. Could not devour the first two parts fast enough...really good build of character development and lovely stories of how the main characters come to form a strong emotional and physical connection from 11 to 18 years of age. Even though I didn't buy into an 11 to 14 year old boy having such mature thoughts/feelings I went with it anyway. At the end of part 2 there is a big moment in college that seemed like a 180 in Asher's personality but I hung in there because it made for great angst/drama and I'm all about conflict resolution and love not being easy. Okay, during part 3, here's where I sort of lost the story and had a hard time finishing. I am not a fan of how she comes across like a codependent doormat after all what happened. I ended up rooting for and pleading with my kindle for Charlie to be with a man like David. Please, please leave looser Asher alone Charlie!!! I won't reveal how it ends but there is even a moment where Asher shows us his true colors again when he finds out what David thinks happened to him. Those moments didn't seem to fit but then I guess he always came across as controlling and all knowing and territorial and even egotistical in many ways when it comes to Charlie. So I'm conflicted. Kudos to the author for making me feel so frustrated.

3.0 out of 5 stars Charlie and Asher 9 March 2016
By misshonee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book started out strong, which is something that I love.
Once I got to the middle of the book, it just got boring. I wanted
to just give up and find another book to read. I only finished in
order to give a review.

Charlie and Asher's characters seemed alot older that they actually
were. The author made them sound like people who had experienced
life not like a couple of college students. Then she turns around and
makes Asher an immature college student who isn't ready to deal
with the responsibilities of real life.

For Charlie's character to tell Asher that she would never get a tattoo
with of his name on her then for her to turn around and get one on her
stomach after what had to be the worst break up in the history of break ups,
is just Crazy.

This book had the potential to be good, but the author decided to take a
turn for the mundane in the middle of this book. Too Bad!
