Needing an escape from her past, Avery chooses a college where no one knows her. Keeping a low profile was the plan, falling for the intense frat boy Jase wasn't. Yet she can't deny how alive she feels when he's near. Even as common sense implores her to stay away, her body begs her to get closer.
Jase, numb from his own family drama, has grown bored with weekends fueled by nameless girls and countless bottles when he meets Avery. Helping her cope with her past is better than dealing with the bullshit his own life's served up. Determined to drive away the painful secret she's guarding, he appoints himself her life coach, and challenges her to new experiences. Getting close to her and being the one to make her smile are simply perks of the job. But when Avery's past boldly saunters in, refusing to be forgotten, can Jase live with the truth about the girl he's fallen for?

No. The story was good so I powered through, but I was CONSTANTLY aware of and distracted by the narration. I feel badly for the author because although the story was enjoyable, I wouldn't recommend this audiobook to anyone.
The narrator may have speech or reading issues. Each and every sentence was blurted out with constant hard pauses where they didn't belong. EVERY SENTENCE. It was torturous! Many simple words were mispronounced. I'm wondering if anyone even listened to the narration during the production of this audiobook. Quality control anyone? The narrator has a nice sounding voice and probably sounds lovely if you're having a conversation with her, but she just can't read out loud.
Love a good NA/YA and romance.. Run Books,Chocolate and Lipgloss book blog!!
I had to stop quarter way thru- I read this book already- and it was super awesome- but the narration was really bad- the narrator was yelling thru out the whole audiobook- did not like. Its a poor reflection on Kendalls book which again was awesome!!!

I love Kendall Ryan's books, but this one is only "okay". Complicating matters is that the narrator is horrible. Her inflections were completely off and never showed the right emotion (relatively flat other than needless emphasis), and her phrasing made it impossible to tell one sentence from the next. All the phrases were read as if they were sentences on their own which made comprehension of the story downright difficult. I own over 300 audio books and this is the worst narration I've ever encountered.
I would have rather read this than listened to it, for sure. The narrator is really not good. Her voice inflections leave so much to be desired that it is hard to enjoy the book at all.
