Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: When Life Falls to Pieces, Answers Lie in the Space Between

After a month-long dance tour through Italy, 20-year-old Leni Drago returns to Georgia to care for her great-uncle, only to find him gone, the home they shared empty and any evidence he ever existed wiped out. All that’s left is a journal she can’t open.

Jeric Winters has been searching for a piece of his past for over a year, only to reach a dead-end in Georgia. When an urgent and magnetic pull draws him out of his hotel room, he comes face-to-face with the beautiful dancer who’s been haunting his dreams day and night.

Jeric’s one to stay away from—a bad-boy, hit-it-and-quit-it type—but Leni can’t escape the fervent feelings between them. As their own existences begin to crumble around them and shadowy forms that are more monsters than men attack, they realize there’s more to the connection between them than physical fascination.

To solve the riddle their lives have become, they must embark on a journey that requires them to face their pasts and release their true souls. And they must do it fast—dark ones from another world are closing in, intent on killing them. Permanently.

I originally saw Kristie's Facebook status asking if any reviewers would like to review The Space Between before it's release so I got in contact with her and offered to review it for her! Imagine my surprise when Kristie offered to squeeze me into her already full Blog Tour and give me an ARC of The Space Between! I may have squealed just a little! I freaking loved this book! The characters, the romance, the plot, the originality! It had everything to make it an amazing book! Everyone is going to fall in love with it! Once I started it I honestly couldn't put it down until I had finished it! It was full of romance and action! I wasn't really sure what paranormal aspect to expect with this book as the synopsis doesn't really give it away but it blew me away and I loved it for its originality! I got so much more than I bargained for with this book and I think that everyone is definitely going to love it! The plot was amazing! I wasn't expecting the things that happened in it so I was quite surprised but it was a good surprise! The plot also had a lot in it and I had to really concentrate to make sure that I understood it all but I learned to adjust pretty early on and grasp what was happening! The characters were written amazingly! The main couple were Leni and Jeric but there was also another couple in this book called Jacey and Micah! Asking me to pick my favourite couple is like asking me to pick my favourite book! Impossible! Both couples were written amazingly and I did find myself edging more towards Jacey and Micah at certain points in the book and then at other points I leaned towards Leni and Jeric! Both couples chemistry was hot! It is exactly the kind I love in books! The Space Between was written from both couples point of views! I thought that the four different point of views was going to confuse me but both couples were going through the exact same thing so I was able to understand both couples point of views! I really enjoyed that Kristie added the backstory by actually putting in Jacey and Micah's story as it added so much to the book and it was like reading two different books at some points which is the first time that I have ever felt like this with a backstory! The ending was full of suspense! I was glued to the book and couldn't put it down! I will definitely be reading the next book in this series as this book exceeded my expectations and I really enjoyed it! The cover is also beautiful! Big thank you to Kristie for offering me a spot in the already full Blog Tour and also for an ARC of The Space Between!
