This book was recommended to me by a friend who read the print version and I loved it! I thought the love story was fabulous and the emotions given to the main characters fit their ages and story well. A lot of the reviews on this book said it could be YA, I don't think it would be okay for any teen to read this book. The fact that the book is about college students has to be in mind when analyzing the choices and personalities given to these characters. There is a part in the middle where they go to Vegas that seemed a bit of a stretch, but the problem that arises from the trip fits in well with the story and brings in back together. I highly recommend this book for anyone that likes a fast moving romance story.
I know this book is full of disfunctional characters, but so is life, and it's OK in my book! I loved their journeys, their coming together, apart, their need for each other and their growth. This book is in my "Favorites" list and I'm sure I'll listen to it again.
Hard to pick only one, but off the top of my head, the way Travis nicknames Abby, and he calls her that throughout the book
Again, so many! But today, I'd say the poker game.
Laugh, yes, a lot. Also cry, but it was overall a very sweet book
This book was surprising to me. I'm happy I found an author I want to follow and I simpy LOVED the narration. Emma Galvin dis a fantastic job and I want to hear her work again.
This was one of my very favorites for sure.
I loved Travis... he was super immature but for some reason I adored him.
When Travis asked "Pidgeon" to accompany him to Thanksgiving with his Dad and brothers despite being broken up... it pulled my heart strings.
Definitely Travis Maddox
I should be embarrassed that I enjoyed this book so much. But I just loved the characters and love story. It's been quite a while since college for me but we all remember the bad boy we weren't supposed to be with but couldn't help ourselves. I just really liked losing myself in this story, I didn't take anything seriously in regard to anger management issues.. I don't get wrapped up in sending the wrong message to young women. Obviously the main character is violent, so don't read this if you can't take violence.

I liked the narrator and the writing.
I liked the entire book.
I was never bored once
Say something about yourself!
Thoughtless and Effortless there both very similar love stories! with bad boys and sweet girls that love them!
She did a great job!
Im counting the days for Walking Disasters!!
Not based on this book, no.
Not in the genre, but I will be more careful in my choices.
No, but the performance was good. considering what she had to work with.
too many to mention- very repetitive and predictable
Silly, underdeveloped characters. Ridiculous plotlines.
I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
This book was a title I found when I searched for the narrator Emma Galvin and I feel lucky. This is the perfect fiction, it is unlike the other performances by Emma Galvin placed in our time. Picking a moment in this book is like asking "If you could pick one book for the rest of your life. which would you choose"? It is not a dull moment in it. However, you need to be aware it is not very realistic. This is fiction which will put you in a different place. It let's you into a cooler version of Gossip girl and you are herby invited. Take this invitation and say yes to this fantastic joyride. You will not regret it if you are a fan of "Hunger games","Divirgent" and "Love unscripted" if you love TV shows like "Prison break, Oz and Bones you have to grab this!
She does a great job. This should however be a title read by Emma Galvin reading the female voices and Nick Podhel should have read the male voices to give the reading full justice.
"College roller coaster with fight club members"
Characters were not formed very well. Storyline was not very believable. I read reviews that this book was really good but was so disappointed.
Not very believable
Disappointment I read it
Waste of time
I love the story. I admit that the events are not common to the normal young adults life, but anyone who had the young angsty love affair in their youth, complete with emotional roller coaster will totally love this.
Travis, of course. Everyone wants to believe that their " bad boy" has a loving emotional side and wouldn't ever look at another girl once they found "the one".
I've seen other reviews praising the narrator's performance and I don't get it. To me, she sounded like a 12 year old boy, and that was the prominent voice you hear as the narrator and Abby. I had trouble for awhile distinguishing between the Travis and Abby characters. America is the only female character that sounds like a girl consistently. It was more than halfway through the book before Abby's voice took on more feminine characteristics.
And the scene where Travis sings "I Can't Get No (Satisfaction)" by the Stones really annoyed me. It's a pretty well known song, and even though the narrator didn't need to sing it, she says the words in such a monotone, drab way that it looses the intent of the scene in the book.
Finch. He'd be fun to hang out with. :)
As much as I love the story, I can't rate it 5 stars because the epilogue ending is pretty hokey and winds the book up on a silly note. It really ruined the end of the story for me. I can't wait though, for "Walking Disasrer" to be released. It's Travis' version of the story.
Well thought out, planned and written.
Although she tends to seem confused at times, Abbey is my favorite character being the protagonist, nothing could swirl around without her.
At first, her monotone bothered me. I pushed past that and just listened to a great story.
Abbey and Travis, just to hear their next drama.
I liked this book...a LOT! I immediately looked for another book written by Jamie McGuire only to be disappointed that there were none. At least, not on Audible. I will keep my eyes peeled though because I really like her style and well planned out script.
