LOVED this story! Could not 'put it down.' Started listening as I weeded the yard, & planted flowers. I never stopped through lunch, fixing the fence,..Show More » adding all the mulch, mowing the lawn, edging the sidewalks and blowing the driveway. The last few chapters were relished as the story came to a conclusion & I enjoyed a tall, cold glass of wine! Great, passionate narrators. Always live it when there are actually male AND female voices. Thanks for that! Love that they took their time & didn't rush the reading. Loved that this was a unique story with interesting characters. Not the typical 'cookie cutter romance.' Have already started recommending Gemini to my book friends.
Oh boy this book hooks you right in with the shy and nervous Nina and her infatuation, lust and ever growing feelings for her gorgeous, tattooed, pier..Show More »ced and very smart roommate Jake. Jake is so supportive and caring towards Nina and he picks up on all her insecurities and helps her as any good friend would do. But the more time they spend together the closer they become but Jake is giving off mixed messages and won't take their relationship to the next level. Every weekend he goes home to Boston and nobody knows why - there's a huge secret he's frightened to tell Nina about because it could ruin everything so when he eventually decides to share his secret with her he is one day too late..... one day that poisons their newly found happiness and joy leaving only despair, longing, heartache, regrets and pain.
What a captivating story because you so desperately want Nina and Jake to work things out but before you know it there's even more heartache, drama, angst, temptations and misunderstandings standing in their way before finally they get their Fairytale HEA ending. It was very touching and romantic at times and it also had it's share of sexy times too and eventually, when you thought their bitter-sweet love story was wrapping up, the author took you just a little further with them which was so perfect, loving, tender and a lovely ending.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's, two really good narrators and a highly emotional, sometimes funny, sometimes sexy, romantic and touching plot made this a very creditworthy listen. And one that had me saying "Oh just one more chapter"...... right through the night.
