Fearing the end is near, she comes up with a plan to make her husband notice her. Can they fix what they once had? Is their love for one another worth the fight?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a super hot short story. It focuses on strengthening relationship between Ava and Will, who is guilty of letting their love life slip. Looking for a short uber sexy read, this one is for you


    What does Hollie Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love how Holly portrays each character flawlessly.

    I loved this book! It brought real life struggles out in the open and didn't dance around the fact that couples have issues, too.

    Melanie James did a fantastic job writing this, and I enjoyed the narrator, Hollie Jackson, very much! Can't wait to listen to the next one!

    "Sexy Short Story!!"
    What did you love best about Ava & Will?

    I loved how they were depicted as just a normal married couple with everyday problems.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ava & Will?

    I loved the hotel scene.


    Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I have listened to numerous performances by Hollie Jackson. This book is one of my favorites.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It's never too late to fall back in love.


    Any additional comments?

    Let me just start off with how much I love Melanie James' books. Her descriptive writing draws you in and never lets go. This book, although short was nothing less than I expected it to be. Being a married woman with four kids I could easily relate to the story of Ava & Will. Sometimes there isn't enough alone time to spend as a couple. I loved how Melanie showed us how easy it is to make time for each other. It was a

    Story
    "Short but defintely not sweet, more like SPICY!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, definitely! This is a story that many of my friends can definitely relate to and appreciate listening to.


    What other book might you compare Ava & Will to and why?

    Actually I can't because this is the first time me listening to a book about a married couple and their issues, however, it will not be the last! I want to listen to the rest of the books in this series!


    Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I listened to the Literal Leigh box set. Hollie Jackson has hit another home run! I love her reading books!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did both because I can relate to the problems that Ava and Will experienced!


    Any additional comments?

    I love Melanie James's books and how Hollie Jackson reads them! I am a definite fan of both and hope they continue!

    "Quick and hot!"

    A short quick throughly enjoyable listen. Ava and Will have been married for 10 yrs, and things are so good right now between them. The women of Éveiller Drive come up with a plan to watch Will & Ava's kids so they can have a weekend alone. This is a light feel good read, and Hollie makes it a pleasure to listen too.
