Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Excerpt and Giveaway: Distance (A New Adult Romantic Comedy) by Andrea Heltsley

Published: September 23rd 2014 

Description: 17+

Lexi 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?


Without a word, I pulled Elena away and let her lean on me for balance. The guy grumbled at me. I steeled my eyes at him until he finally turned and left. She pouted for a minute, but by the time we were halfway across the yard, she had already forgotten about it.

Every step we made, she struggled a bit more to keep upright. By the time we made it to the back door, I had to set her down to stop and breathe. My muscles were cramped from her weight and I wasn’t sure how I was going to get her through the house, the front yard, and all the way down the street to the car.

Preparing to make the trek through the house into the masses, I pulled Elena up and promptly fell over. All I could do was brace myself for the fall, but then strong hands caught me and set me back up. Relief spilled through me and I turned to see who had saved me and Elena.

It was Mason and he was grinning at us. His teeth were white and perfect, as I could only expect from someone so gorgeous. He was even better looking in the light. It really was too bad I was anti-men right now.

Thanks, I was almost a goner. You’ve saved me twice tonight.”

“It’s no problem, Lexi. Is this your friend?”

“Yeah, she’s pretty much past drunk and almost comatose. I’m not sure how I’m going to get her to the car. I barely got her across the backyard.”
