Distance by Andrea HeltsleyLexi has sworn off guys for good.
She’s always been a hot mess, but accidentally finding her boyfriend of three years cheating on her is just too much for her to handle. 
All she wants is to get this summer done and over with, so she and her best friend Elena can travel cross country for college. Then she will finally be free of this town, the friends that dropped her in favor of her ex, and her klutzy reputation.
Lexi's policy was working perfectly, until a guy named Mason comes to her rescue. Not once but twice in one night. For once, her mishaps have led to something good.
She’s feeling things that scare her, but she’s drawn to him. Can Mason break through her walls, or will she stick to her plan and steer clear of him?
This is a new adult romantic comedy.
Recommended for ages 17+ due to mature content.

MY REVIEW:
     Your first is always special or at least we all hope it is.  Lexi May was holding out even with dating her boyfriend Jameson for the last three years of high school, she was a hold out.  On the day of their graduation after checking with her BFF, Elena, to see if she knew where he was she started calling to no response. 
     With students in a mad rush she got plastered against the brick wall getting a run in her nylons.  She decided to get out of them and go pee at the same time.  The restrooms were over crowded due to the event so she went to the ones farthest away.  She was almost to the door on her way out when she hears sexual moaning of male and a female.  She is like “GROSS!”  It was when the male spoke words that she knew who it was.  YUP!  You got it her own personal scumbag and now ex Jamieson.
     Needless to say they broke up.  After a month of tears and old memories filled with pain Elena couldn’t take it anymore. I was Henry’s annual summer bash and she was not going to let them miss it.  She said she didn’t want to go but Elena said she would drag her if she had to.  Since she always got what she wanted we went.  All was going well after several songs that they danced their hearts out.  Lexi needed some fresh air and who does she run into on the front porch making out?  You got it again, Jamieson and Christy.  When Jamieson called out to her it was just too damn much she just walked off down the street she would not give them the satisfaction to let them see her cry.  She finds a nice dark front yard to sit at the curb and balls her eyes out.
     She sends a text to Elena it was time to go because she just couldn’t go back to Henry’s.  She closes her eyes and begins to realize how she was glad she broke up with Jamieson that he didn’t deserve her.  She closes her eyes to let that sink in when she feels Elena walk up and sit next to her.  But when she slumps into her she realizes it’s not her at all.  They smelled male and was hard bodied.  She was about to yell thinking it was Jamieson when it was the most gorgeous guy she ever saw when she opened her eyes.  She started to freak when he spoke and asked if she was okay.  His voice was so calming to her.  Like being at home.  For some reason she wasn’t afraid, she was completely drawn to him.  He introduced himself as Mason, Henry’s friend since they were kids and their moms were kids.
     From that moment on Lexi’s life changed. All that she knew would be altered by meeting Mason.  She couldn’t get him off her mind but since she was going away at the end of summer to go to college it wouldn’t be wise to start a new relationship.  So, friendship it was…or was it?
     You will have to read and see for yourself.  Lexi and Elena get into and do things as a parent I would not recommend.  Yet as a youth I could see them happening.  Poor Lexi is accident prone so it is always a comedy of errors with her.
I give this 5 stars.  Provided by Net Galley.
