    He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy. So, that was Matt. Who Julie Seagles likes. A lot. But there is also Finn. Who she flat out loves. Complicated? Awkward? Completely. But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the family of an old friend of her mother’s? This was all supposed to be temporary.

    This was an easy listen and I loved the characters in this story. It is not your typical love story, and it was nice for a change.

    "If opposites attract, then I am nothing. Because you, you are everything." There's no easy road traveled to such an intense sentiment, one I never dreamt I'd feel. But I also never planned on Cannon Blackwell climbing aboard my tour bus.

    Story

    This book had my full attention from the start. It was such a sweet love story. I loved all of the characters and especially loved Liz. Some stories I read I don't believe they actually fall in love after a month ... But I was a believer in this love. I wish more by this author were on audible!

    >"Make me proud." These were the last words Livie’s father ever spoke to her. In the seven years since her parents’ tragic death, Livie has done her best to keep this promise through her every choice, word, and action, while looking after her sister with strength and maturity. But with college right around the corner, unexpected challenges will test her resilience - and her heart. Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she’s dead set on delivering on it: Rock her classes, set herself up for medical school, and meet a good, respectable guy to marry someday. What isn’t part of her plan are Jell-O shots; a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say "no" to; and Ashton....

    For high-school senior Celeste Watkins, every day is a brutal test of bravery. And Celeste is scared. Alienated because she's too smart, her speech too affected, her social skills too far outside the norm, she seems to have no choice but to retreat into isolation. But college could set her free, right? If she can make it through this grueling senior year, then maybe. If she can just find that one person to throw her a lifeline, then maybe, just maybe.

    Story

    I listened to Flat Out Love forever ago and was so excited to see this pop up on my screen on audible because I wanted to know what happened to Celeste. She is by far one of my most favorite characters. She is quirky and strange, and perfect in her own way - what a well written book. Plus you get to hear more about Matt and Julie - so you really need to listen or read Flat Out Love first.

Ever since, Alexa has worked to turn her life in a different direction and forge her own identity outside of his terrible secrets.

    After reading the summary of the book I wasn't sold on the story line but I love Samantha Young, so I gave it a go. For sure this is my favorite book of hers, and that is saying a lot because I love her On Dublin Street series. I got through the book in two days - couldn't take the ear buds out! Lexi is funny and strong and honest. I love her character. And I always like a guy who is a hard egg to crack. There are many layers to Cain and it takes the entire book to get to the heart of him. So freaking good.

    Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.

    Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle - and people in general - has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands.

    The moment a mysterious boy moves in next door to Sydney and Allyson Tate, both of their lives begin to change in ways that neither of them can ignore. When Allyson meets Graham Copeland, she instantly feels like he's a kindred spirit - shy and awkward like her, someone who has trouble making friends. It's almost impossible to resist having a crush on him.

    This book was good, I guess? Kind of not sure how I feel about it. It would be a good book to talk to others about and I wish I had a hard copy so I could go back and read some of it again. I saw the twist coming but it ended weird.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    I was hesitant to listen to this series because of all the negative reviews I read. But..... with the movie coming out...I'm glad I went ahead and listened to it. It's entertaining and not at all hard core like I thought it would be with the suppopsed BDSM story line. Their love story is sweet and romantic and worth the listen. I didn't love the narration but it was okay....might be better to read though instead of listen.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.
