Publisher's Summary

"High school sweethearts, cutest couple, and together forever" were the words that used to describe Amy and Stuart. Now, with college behind them and careers in full swing, they are not the couple they once were. Those happy words have been replaced by separation, disappointment, and drifting apart. As they face the end of their forever, a high school reunion may just be what these two need to rekindle their love.

    "A very sweet short story"
    Would you listen to Like We Used To: A Short Story again? Why?

    Yes, it was very quick but it was a cute story that makes you think of your own personal relationship. While I was listening I was thinking about my marriage and things we could do to keep it exciting. It hurt a little when you learned about their point of views in the separation and a little angsty when they saw each other again but in the end it was a beautiful realistic story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Like We Used To: A Short Story?

    I loved when they saw each other at the reuinion.

    "Good Short Story"

    I loved the story. it should be listened to by couples especially those who are contemplating divorce. I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review via audiobook boom. This couple have been together for a long time and have grown apart and the husbnd wants a separation but he is suffering from something else that has his thinking wrong. They still love each other so what are they to do? Loved the fact that thye made good choices before going to marriage counceling. Liked the narrator as well. The fact that each chapter switched between the two was also a good choice of writing style.

    Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.

    "Short entertainment"

    I think this is an extremely relatable short story that helps us all remember to not become sedentary in our lives and our relationships.

    Stephanie Bentley did a fantastic job narrating. I don't think I have listened to anything by her before but I will definitely keep my eyes peeled. She had to do a lot of make narration and her voice can change to sound deeper without sounding corny.

    Very good short listen. This audiobook was provided to me by the author, publisher or narrator in exchange for my unbiased review through audiobook boom.

    "A sweet, tender short story!"

    Like We Used To by Eryn Scott is a very sweet romance. The characters and the situation they are in is very real. Stephanie Bentley's narration was as good as the story was. Her voice was true to each character. I look forward to more books from each of them. I would recommend this audio book to anyone. Teens as well as older women would enjoy this sweet, clean story.

    Story
    "Satisfying novella!"

    I am a huge fan of short novellas, and this one was extremely well written. Many times, they are too short and do not have good character development. In this case, Eryn Scott has hit a home run. The characters of Amy and Stuart come to us at the age of 28. They have settled into married life after being high school sweethearts and Stuart has asked for a separation. Amy is shocked by the request, but knows things have not been good between them. The two reflect on their relationship over a period of time and both end up at their high school reunion. There, Amy and Stuart are able to talk about missing each other, what was going wrong and how to fix the problems, starting fresh and keeping things that way. I especially liked that they were both open to counseling as well. A little angst, a little sadness and a lot of happiness, this novella brought it all.

    Stephanie Bentley was the narrator of this book. It is the first time I have heard her, and absolutely loved her voice. She has a good range for both male and female characters and was very pleasant to listen to.

    --I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Simple"

    This is just the sort of story I was in the mood for: a simple romance, sure there was a plot but just the same, there was an easy solution. The short story follows the lives of Amy and her husband, who also happened to be her high school sweetheart. The two people who have always been beautifully right for each other, except now they have a huge problem: they're growing apart.

    Can their relationship survive the separation? Will they move on, with different people? Was their's a foolish marriage?

    As short as it was, this book was good. It was written smoothly, there were no details left out no loose ends. And, while it wasn't the same as A Chance for Sunny Skies (which ventures into the 'laughing out loud' territory- I'm a huge fan of that book, as you can probably tell), this book (for a short romance novel) was great. The storyline was realistic: 'growing apart' is an issue most couples deal with at some point. I liked it.

    I received this book through Audiobook Boom.
