Absolutely loved this story. I haven't read anything by the author before but the description sounded interesting. It's about two college kids who are drawn together by unusual circumstances. She knew who he was; Griffin Chandler, captain and one of the star athletes on the Schools Basketball Team, popular and gorgeous. She (Roxie) kept to herself and tried to always fade into the shadows..... Until one night while doing laundry.
The author wrote the characters with great detail and they were very developed. Each person had their place in the story and played a great part in it. But the narrators gave it even more depth.
The story made me say "Awe", I even laughed out loud too. And the character of Griffin... WOW I doubt I will watch NCAA Basketball the same again.
I LOVED the main characters but Griffin was my favorite, however I think it's because of the narrator's voice. SWOOOOOON
They were both AMAZING. They both gave the character's depth and emoted very well. I could close my eyes and picture the characters. As a female I will say that Ken's voice is VERY soothing. It's deep and rich, and he does the character's drawl effortlessly!! I will for sure look forward to listening to them both again!
Can two people who are so different be so similar in ways they never imagined? Can trust, patience and Love conquer it all?
GET THIS BOOK... you will LOVE IT, just like I did!
Yes. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two main characters. Though it took me a little bit to get used to the narrators, I did feel they did a great job in making the characters sound the way the story described.
They didn't try to overdo the parts that were of the opposite sex. They did a great job of matching their voices to each others when reading.
I could have. I don't usually listen to books all in one sitting but the story definitely kept my interest.
It took me a chapter or two to get into the story because the characters seemed a little one dimensional at first, but once the story got going I began to really connect with them. I'm glad I stuck with it. I definitely recommend this for a listen.
I really really enjoyed listening to one of my favorite books being read to me. I have read the story twice already and now I've listen to it being read to me. I still love this story. It is such a warm love story, I wish it was mine. Lol! Keep writing such great stories.
I loved the story of Griffin and Roxy. I loved being able to hear the story unfold it definitely made me feel as I was in the story. Roxy and Griffin are a wonderful couple and I liked how I more involved in their relationship I felt by being able to hear the words rather than reading them. Wonderful job done by Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott.
I listen to a lot of these types of books. And this book comes in at one of my favorites. Is the Dual narration from both characters points of view makes the story more interesting as well as more intricate. you become personally invested in the characters.
Roxy and Griffin are real people you can relate to. Their insecurities and loyalty come alive in this work of fiction. There isn't a dull moment. The story is part sexy, equal parts romance and good old fashioned storytelling. This is one of my favorite books.
Definitely not the best book I've heard.
I don't like basketball or roller derby, but I kept my mind open, hoping that the storyline would make up for it; it was passable.
Roxy's character was played well, Griffin's seemed forced, like Wen was reaching for the accent and never quite made it.
The hokey, stereotypical, overexagerated Texas accent and descriptions were a over the top and irritated me after a while.
I prefer the blended reading, where the characters were voiced by both inside the chapter, unlike the narrative.
