As I've reviewed the Space, this is a review of The Dividing Line and Drake's Destiny which are continuations of Lacey's and Drake's story. In The Dividing Line, we are reacquainted with characters from The Space Between. Margot is Lacey's best friend and a drug dealer; Derrick is her cousin who also becomes a good friend of Drake; Lacey's aunt who is Derrick's mother; and Adele, Drake's sister. The characters are well developed. The Dividing Line is the story of Lacey finding fame in Paris and Drake sacrificing everything to be with her. Their roles are reversed. Lacey has more money than Drake who walked away from his family and their wealth after they refused to accept Lacey. Lacey starred in an opera and is well paid plus she inherited over two hundred thousand dollars when her mother died. Drake works as a laborer in a museum and makes less than Lacey. Lacey is unaware of how this difference affects Drake. She agreed to continue her role after the initial three month without discussing it with Drake who wants to return to the U. S. They finally agreed that she would remain in Paris and he would return to the U. S. Her aunt Gladys rented him a room and Derrick helped him find a job. Drake made new friends who were Korean as he was; Natalia, Mina, Kyle and Luc.
All of the friends and relatives played a part in the misunderstandings between Lacey and Drake. They were also responsible for their reconciliation. We see Lacey realizing her mistake in staying in Paris. She returns to the U. S. She also allows her father to become a part in her life which almost caused her death and caused great hurt to Lacey and Drake. This book deals with problems as a result of their multiculturalism. It shows that true love overcomes problems and misunderstandings and hatred including racism. Lacey and Drake overcomes all obstacles and starts a life together.
Their story concludes in Drake's Destiny. Drake reunites with his adopted family, received part of his trust and becomes engaged to Lacey. Still, something is missing from His life. He needs to find his birth mother, hoping to discover the part of him that's Korean. This is a short novella detailing his and Lacey's trip to Korea. Does he find His birth mother? Does she love him and why did she give him up for adoption? This is a sweet, easy read which answers all of any questions. It seemed a little rushed but still fulfills any needs left from The Space Between and The Dividing Line. It's better to buy all three books in a set and much cheaper, especially if you can get them as a special offer.
Victoria Smith writes extremely interesting interracial romances. She includes most races not just black and white. Her characters are more multicultural than simply different races but different social status because of differing amounts of wealth, education, etc. or lack thereof. Her characters' backstories are well developed with full plots and subplots and intrigue to keep you reading well into the night. Of course, there's steamy sex but the books are not defined by sex. Her books are often full of the love and forgiveness her families exhibit and their love and acceptance of others who are different.
I really enjoyed the coming of age love story between Drake and Lacey. They deal with major life changing experiences throughout and I don't want to give the storyline away. Lots of issues going on - racial, since of self and self-worth, drugs and abandonment to name a few.
I think this is the first time I have read something where the hero and heroine did not fall into bed with other bed. Not to say there were not opportunities to do so, it was sort of refreshing to see a young love that stayed true to their significant other through their trials and tribulations.
A refreshing read. I think I will read Found by You by this author.

Thank you Victoria
Overall, the story of Drake and Lacey was written in a simple style, getting lost in the author's vivid, mind provoking prose, unfortunately, was neither a satisfaction or pleasure attained. It was this simplicity that never allowed the story to really come alive - the plot always seemed to just simmer aimlessly in it's average story telling.
What I did like about this author was that she didn't appear to try to plagiarise another author's writing style. So many of this type of genre of book has such a carbon copy formula that many read as the same as each other. Victoria H. Smith managed to stay true and consistent with her writing ability - albeit a simple and straight forward one.
An OK read if you don't want to be challenged!
