I read the original version of this when it was part of the SWEET & SASSY ANTHOLOGY: HIDDEN IDENTITIES COLLECTION. This time I listened to the audiobook. I really enjoyed the narrator and the fun way she interpreted the characters. The addition, for this version, of the epilogue was soo sweet. Loved it!
Yes. It was so fun to listen to. I normally only listen to my audio books at the gym for motivational purposes but I couldn't stop listening to this one.
The characters were easy to relate to. I may not have had a twin but I did grow up in a small town and was always known as so and so's cousin or little sister.
She does a wonderful job of showing emotion through her voice and changing how she talks when she is a different character. There were times when I wondered if there wasn't someone else doing a voice because of how different it was.
I laughed and choked back tears.
What a cute concept for a story! At first I wondered if I'd buy the idea of someone pretending to be their deceased twin because she's crushing on a guy. But the way Lindzee had Keslee rationalized it in her head made it believable for me.
I really enjoyed how Tiffany performed Keslee. Pretty voice.
This is a very clean and simple story, so if you're looking for an easy listen without a great deal of description or plot, than this just might be the thing for you.
This was fantastic I didn't want it to end. The little but of drama but over all the love story and how the story ask came together was fantastic. looking forward to listening to Mir of your work. you pick the perfect narrator to pull the whole story together definitely a five start read :-) :-)
Overall Rating: 3 1/2 Stars.
First Love Second Choice by Lindzee Armstrong is an enjoyable short story that basically answers the question of whether you'd ever date someone after they called you by someone else's name after kissing you. The story centers around Keslee who is still mourning the death of her twin sister a few years after she died. One night she meets Bryce, her high school crush, in the grocery store as she's in her jammies and on a middle of the night ice cream run. Bryce mistakes Keslee for her her dead sister Jadyn and asks her out on a date. After correcting him a few days later and after working together on a project, they finally have a real date with each other. As he walks her to the door and kisses her goodnight, he calls her Jadyn. Lots of misunderstandings and graveling ensues.
I listened to this story via audiobook, which was narrated by Tiffany Williams. She did a wonderful job, giving each character their own distinct voice. Tiffany's style is very natural making the story very conversational and totally believable. I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.
I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
Since I love Lindzee Armstrong as an author, I read whatever she can put out there. This was a great book as well as all her others. You can't go wrong with Lindzee's books. She does a great job of creating a very cute story without all the colorful sex. The narrator does a great job of distinguishing each of the characters. You won't be disappointed in this easy, comfortable, heart filling, positive story.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
This is Keslee's story. Throughout high school Keslee had a crush on Bryce. However, he had eyes for her twin sister, Jadyn. One day, years later, at a chance meeting at the grocery store Bryce recognizes and greets Keslee, he mistakenly thought she was Jadyn.
After a brief conversation, in which Keslee did not correct Bryce's assumption, she agrees to go on a date with him. There was a big problem with that though. Her sister, Jadyn had been killed a few years ago and Bryce hadn't heard. He thought he was going on a date with Jadyn.
The story goes on with misunderstandings and corrections. As young girls, the twins made a deal - if one of them liked to boy the other would steer clear, but if they both liked the boy neither would pursue him. So Keslee is wrapped with guilt.
Again, it was a cute story and could have been potential of a full-length novel or novella.
One complaint, the author really needs to use expand her description of what Keslee is feeling. The phrase 'her stomach jumps' in a lot of situations - excitement, fear or guilt. Also, 'pop rocks in her stomach' was referenced at least seven times. A tiny complaint.
Tiffany Williams does an excellent job performing the story. Each character has a distinctive voice, a real challenge as the characters was mostly women, with the exception of Bryce and another character. Great job.
*I was given this book in exchange for my review.
I cannot think of a different, descriptive way to describe this short book. It was sweet and cute. I listen to it right before going to bed.
There is nothing to warn about in this book. No mature themes
