The Dividing Line Synopsis:

A new love and a new life.

Drake left Chicago with little more than the clothes on his back to be with his girlfriend Lacey. Though he has no regrets, he sometimes wonders if his time spent in Paris has put his life on hold. He’s overworked and underpaid at his dead-end job, and his employer sees him as expendable. His bright light at the end of the day is Lacey, but he finds himself slowly falling into the shadow of her newly-acquired fame. The city of love has found their new starlet in Lacey, but Drake is simply the man by her side.

With all good things there comes a price.

Lacey has been living the dream. She arrived in Paris with nothing but heartache and loss. Now, she’s the rising star of the city’s newest opera and dating the man of her dreams. When her performance contract is extended, she must decide if her new life of glitz and glam is what’s best for a future with the man she loves—or if it’s just what’s best for her.

Paris brought Drake and Lacey together. But when their hopes for the future begin taking them in different directions, they must a find common ground or risk a line dividing them that may prove to be insurmountable.

The Dividing Line is the sequel to the new adult multicultural romance The Space Between.

My Review...

This is a book two in a series and starts off where The Space Between Left off with Drake and Lacey in Paris.  Here Lacey is living her dream while Drake is being the ever loving supportive boyfriend but who is living vicariously through Lacey and her wants and aspirations.

For Lacey she is super successful where Drake is just getting by.  This starts to cause problems because Drake is crazy prideful where Lacey is blissfully ignorant to some things.

Drake starts to realize that he needs more than to follow Lacey but he doesn't want to hinder her dreams in anyway.  With this revelation Drake returns to Chicago and Lacey remains in Paris.  They will only be separated for three months which for me feels like nothing but I forget what it is like to be 18 and that length of time feels like your world is ending.

The separation is tough between the two and the busier Lacey gets the more Drake has time to think.  Here he starts to realize what he is missing and what he wants to do, where Lacey is getting over worked and realizes that her dreams are not as important without her heart.

This is a very cute story about love, loss and diversity.  The hardships that Lacey and Drake have to go through between cultures is heartbreaking and it kills me that is more of a reality than just fiction for some couples.  Lacey and Drake have a hard time but with this they grow as individuals and it does nothing but strengthen their bond together.

My Review... 

This is basically an epilogue to Lacey and Drake and it was beautiful.  Drake and Lacey get the answers they need and we get to see how it all turns out for these two and know that they pulled through. 

This series is a great series about finding love where you least expect it and even though the odds are against you love is enough to pull through in the end.

For this novella I will give it a 5 because I loved it!
