    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.

    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.

    What if you had a second chance to meet someone for the first time?Cal Logan is shocked to see Nicole Bentley sitting across from him at a coffee shop thousands of miles from their hometown. After all, no one has seen or heard from her since they graduated over a year ago. Except this girl isn't Nicole.

    I loved this story! Sort of reminded me of "Losing Hope". It's sweet and romantic and heartbreaking at times, and I loved the mystery surrounding Nyelle. Rebecca's characters are honest and real and I was hooked from the
    start. I listened to it in 2 days. So good!

Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story

    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.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Story

    I had heard that this story was full of twists and turns and that I would hate the ending....but with the movie coming out I decided to move it from my Wish List and into my Library and get it done. I'm glad no one gave away the plot. I thought I had it all figured out in the beginning and I was wondering what all the fuss was about. Come on, Nick is just an ahole and Amy had every right to be unhappy. Then you keep reading. Wait, is Nick lying? Is he crazy? Or is Amy? Wait, what is going on? I love it when you finally get the whole story and can piece it all together, but it is maddening until then. I'm still sort of trying to figure out what the heck happened really. Did I hate it? Did I love it? Not sure, honestly. Bottom line it was entertaining and totally different than any other book I have read. It kept my attention and I listened to it in like 3 days. It's definitely a story I want to talk about with others that have read it and I can't wait to see the movie.

    This book is pretty good. I'm not jumping up and down ecstatic about it but I was good and sweet and heart warming. I loved Andrew's character. It is definitely a slow burn - takes a long while before the love story heats up, but still very good.

    When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she doesn't think it's love at first sight. They wouldn't even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn't want love, she doesn't have time for love, so that just leaves the sex.

    It is so refreshing to start a book and know from the first chapter you are hooked. I LOVED Colleen Hoover's Hopeless books but I think I loved this one even more. I liked having both perspectives in the same book and it was unique to have Will's story be the past and Tate's be the present. I was dying to know what in the crap happened to Will to make him so closed off to love. I couldn't stop listening. It was so so so good! Thank you Colleen - love your books.

    I love this series! So entertaining --- love the characters and writing style. This is Jimmy's book...the grumpy lead singer of Stage Dive. I was curious to see how his story would play out because I wasn't sure I liked him at all from the first two books. Lena is one of my favorite character and I loved their story. Keep em coming Kylie.
