Eighteen-year-old Benjamin Nefer seems to have it all: great looks, incredible football skills, and smooth moves that have won - and broken - the hearts of countless girls at his high school. But his hellish home life has left him feeling empty inside, unable to experience real feelings. He thinks he's fine being this way forever... until he meets a beautiful and witty 17-year-old girl named Charlotte "Charlie" Austin. She may be new in town, but she's already been warned about Benjamin's reputation, so it's easy for her to shoot down his advances. Like him, she's happier keeping people at a distance, especially since she, too, has secrets she's not ready to share with anyone. But as the tentative friendship between the charismatic football captain and the new girl grows, Charlie finds herself feeling closer to Benjamin than she's ever felt with anyone - and he wonders if he's really capable of loving after all. Can they drop their guard, or is this so-called romance just another game?

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
The End of Feeling is intended for a high school audience. It certainly reminded me of the uuncertainty that normally accompanies the teen years, a period many of us would not want to repeat. The two main characters, Benjamin and Charlotte/Charlie, each have things about their lives that neither wants others to know.
The narration of this novel is especially good.
The characters are very real and extremely well performed. The story has some unusual aspects that make it a more interesting read.
Just a little "sappy" but sometimes that's a good thing.
Generally I've enjoyed most narrators I have heard from audible. However, the female narrator on this book was so overly dramatic, and the dialogue so simplistic and predictable, I'm not quite sure why I endured listening to the entire story. I would not recommend spending a credit on this book. Completely forgettable!
Avid reader who hates it when editors or writers butcher the English language. Honest reviewer.
Charlie is so lovable. The way she loves her mom is poignant. Ben is understandable & it's heartbreaking to hear what he deals with. This book will stay with me.
