I want to say that I didn't dislike the book. Jamie McGuire creates a few very dramatic and visceral characters that you fall in love with their tormented love affair very quickly. However there are many scenes in this book that have a lot of build up to them and nothing really happens. McGuire had a ton of great ideas but very followed through with the threat and that was where the book lost it's 5 star rating for me.
Emma Galvin is a great Narrator, this is the second book I have listened to her. She really brings a lot to the characters and I am glad I decided to listen to the book over buying the physical copy.
If you are looking for a good book to escape into this is a great pick!
Yes!!!! It a great read . I love the story and the characters.
The unexpected love story between mixed up teens.
Explovise lobe story!!
This story had me laughing, anger, and crying.
It was good enough to finish it, but I was not impressed. I am not sure that I liked either of the main characters and sadly, found myself not caring if they ended up with a HEA. Very disfunctional relationship and still not sure what it was based on. It didn't seem like love to me. Just odd.
The storyline with her father, "Mick" was just ridiculous and added absolutely nothing to the story. I did like Travis' family though.
I also liked Abbey's best friend America and her boyfriend, Shep and found their friend Finch to be a lot of fun.
As for the narrator, I did like Emma Galvin somewhat, but sounded more like a mature 14 year old than a 19 year old.
Don't waste the credit. I couldn't wait for it to end.
Some of my coworkers told me that this book was hard to put down once they started, but I wasn't all that intrigued by the story. Granted, the main character and her beau are young college kids with serious attachment issues, and maybe I feel that I'm past that (or just hope I am!). I think that I would be more likely to recommend this book to a young 20-something than to someone my own age (mid-30's). It wasn't horrible by any stretch, but I just felt that it was lacking in depth.
Tell us about yourself!
I Love the fact that the its constently keeping you guessing. Not to mention Travis is the man who lays it all out their. I have read this book 8 times and it still cant get enough. I have diffently recommed this book to others and they also feel in love with Travis. The drop your pantys maddog Travis and the down on his knees begging dont leave.
Travis of course and i cant wait till his book comes out. He's the kind of guy you would love to have. Tough, soft and cant get enough of. I Love This Character. He hard to get, hard to enough with and hard to let go.
This book was the best. I cant say I had one favorite part because all was my favorite. I love it when she first meets his family, the poker night when she kicks butt. And he is so in F Love with her. I love it at thanksgiving, I Love it when he takes her over his shoulder out of the party, I Love how she is dress in the beginning..
diffently i could not get enough of. I have read this book 8 times.
i wish this book did not end and it was a series.... and i cant wait till his comes out..... I will be getting it. ?
The story was well played but I didn't realize that it was geared to such a young group of participants. This may have appealed to me more in my 20's than it did now. Rather age specific. It was a good story and there were some values instilled on an underlying sense. I'd recommend this to my assistants' daughter who is in her third year of college at this point, not her mother all the same.
I would and have recommended this to many friends. I absolutely love the story.
Reading the story, I really loved Travis. Listening, though, I'm increasingly aware that a voice can make all the difference. I'm not sure I'm a fan of any of the characters while listening.
A different narrator.
Only once, in hopes that the narrating style got better.
If you have read this book, and are among the many that view Travis as "best book boyfriend", this is not something you want to listen to. I am going to have to re-read the book to get my image of him back, and erase the image of a tyrannical, prepubescent boy from my mind. I kept picturing the nerdy kid at the back of my 8th grade class when she read Travis's lines, or any of the other male characters for that matter.
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.
