They call him the Anaconda, and I'm pretty sure it isn't because he likes snakes. Nick Jenson is my neighbor. My hot, oh-so-sexy, very-well-equipped neighbor that I'd spend hours watching from the safety of my bedroom window. I saw lots of things I probably shouldn't have. Sometimes I'd touch myself, imagining it were his hands roaming over my body instead of my own. I had just one mission - to find out if the rumors were true.

Character development could have been a little better, felt sort of rushed. Cute story though. Wish the lead female didn’t sound like she had a mouth full of braces though.

This is one of two books now that I will put in my all time epic love story category! The other is a duet book1 and 2 of Forgetting you, Forgetting me. That is a must listen to as well. And also an ugly cry.

I’m not sure why others had such a hard time keeping up with this book but I had no problems at all. Maybe I was prepared due to reading other reviews ahead of time. There is a twist you won’t see coming but that isn’t derailed by the back and forth between past and present. I ugly cried at the epilogue. Then listened to a beautiful love story until the last few hours when I proceeded to ugly cry nonstop until the end and go through almost an entire box of Kleenex.

I am a fan of Erin Mallon as she is one of the rare narrators that has a male voice to melt panties, it’s quite incredible actually, and Jason Clarke is just hot as hell, too bad he only does the epilogue. This book needed a strong female narrator and Erin Mallon did not disappoint.

If you have read the reviews and can follow the story you will have no problem with this book at all. Just listen and keep your mind open and pay attention. I personally didn’t have any unanswered questions other than at the beginning when it jumps to the future for the first time, my only advice on that is ignore your question and just enjoy the story, it will all become clear.

I will absolutely be listening to this story again in the future. I will be waiting for the audible version of the next book featuring Ben in “A Mess of a Man”. I may even spring for the book in case I ever get a chance to actually read one. Please please have someone voice worthy record the next book. Jason Clarke, Zachary Webber, Jacob Morgan, Christian Fox... someone like that. Not Sebastian York, his voice is too mature for Ben. If a female is needed well Erin Mallon, Andy Arndt, Samantha Morton.. either way please record the book.

Thank you for this beautiful edition to my life. So worth any credit or dollar amount!

My name is Lucy Tucker, and my life…it was perfect. I worked the dream job. I had the most incredible family and friends. My home, Whispering Willows, a ranch in Montana, was everything I could ever wish for. My adoring fiancé, Samuel Stone, loved me unconditionally. I had everything a girl could ever want. But one fateful event shattered my perfect life. It’s unimaginable how simple, ordinary words can change a person’s life forever. For me those words were, “There’s been an accident.

This review is for both books. This is one of my all time favorite stories ever! I ugly cried so hard it is not even funny! I cannot begin to explain the how great of a love story this book is. The gamete of emotions that I went through was so incredible. I wish I had a love story as epic as this without all the tragedy of course.
Summer Morton was freaking amazing! This narration was one of the best ever. She did such an amazing job differentiating between all the voices it was uncanny.
Worth every freaking penny and should be made into a movie for sure.

The truth sets you free...but what happens when everything you believe in changes in the blink of an eye? All I ever wanted was for my fiancé, Samuel Stone, to remember me. And now that he does...all I want is for him to forget. Through tragedy, I found myself and who I was destined to become. But more importantly, I found who I was destined to be with. With a single word, Saxon Stone changed my life forever. He taught me how to live again. But now that Samuel remembers and all secrets have been revealed, I’m left to wonder which life I’m meant to lead.

Thomas Goldstone. A man of a billion-dollar deals in custom-tailored suits, he demands more than your best. He’s scary. Driven. Haunted by inner demons that have taken him to the brink. But beneath the arrogant, controlling facade lies a heart of gold. It makes me want to solve him one growly, messy piece at a time. To be the only one who sees the truth of the man.

The story was so emotionally good! I loved it. Hated Carly’s voice, omg please don’t let her do the next one, I had to bite down and bare it for her stuff especially the sex scenes. Can’t wait for the next one but please pick another female narrator.

"Hi Monty. Wanna see my python?" That's how I ended up in the bathroom of some dive bar with a stranger. Me, Monty Andrews, the quintessential virgin girl next door. I was so out of my element, but there was no denying our explosive attraction, even via text. Commence Operation Bang Each Other Out of Our Systems, because that was all it was - unfinished business. I had no intention of falling back into the sheets with the tattooed, muscly, dirty-in-the-best-kind-of-way single dad over and over... but I did. Everything was going great - until we discovered I was his son's teacher.

Omg I have waited so long for this book to become narrated and then they went and ruined it with a bad male narrator!! Noooooo. Re-do it please! His female voice was one of the worse I have ever heard and his voice for Zac was horrible and I want my money back! It would have been all 5’s if they had just left Emma for the whole thing or picked basically any other male!

I'm assigned to help superstar tight end, Duncan Hart, rehab his elbow. His chiseled features melt the hearts of women everywhere, including mine. There's just one problem. Duncan's an asshole, with an ego the size of a football stadium. He lives for the roar of the crowd. He thrives on it. And he wants to let me experience the Hart attack - yes, he has a name for it. But that's not going to happen. At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

Scarlett is always the sensible one: The sober driver. The planner. The one holding your hair back while you're worshiping the porcelain gods. Week-after-week, she visits Jock Row with her friends - the university's hottest party scene and a breeding ground for student athletes. And if keeping her friends out of trouble and guys out of their pants was a sport, she'd be the star athlete. Being a well known jock-blocker gets her noticed for all the wrong reasons; just like that, she's banned from Jock Row. No guy wants a girl around who keeps their jock friends from getting laid.

I love a good book where the guy doesn’t start off as a womanizing man whore that eventually learns the error of his way... Sterling is an all around great guy that falls for a woman and there is no angst or ridiculous scene where there is some huge misunderstanding or someone is put in a compromising situation. I don’t mind that sometimes but I just feel like it is soooooo overdone. What about just telling a story of two people that wet and fall in love the normal easy natural uncomplicated way??!! Well this book has it.. so much in love with this!! Worth the credit

What do you do when a sexy older man moves into your family’s summer rental? Well, apparently, you make a fool of yourself - over and over. Things didn’t exactly get off on the right foot with Noah Cavallari. Our first encounter was embarrassing, to say the least. But despite that, I found myself waking up every day with a newfound energy. Nothing exciting ever happened on the lake - not until Noah moved into the small boathouse on our property. When my mother became ill, I inherited the responsibility of making sure our guests were well taken care of.

This book has it all! Omg I need Noah in my life! I will definitely be listening to this book again and again! Only thing I would change is the male lead. Please don’t get me wrong I absolutely love Sebastian York, but his voice no longer fits a guy in his 20’s or 30’s anymore. 40+ for him. So Zachary Webber, Jacob Morgan, Jason Clarke, teddy hamilton, Christian Fox.. that’s where we need to be on this age range. That is my one and only criticism I have and it has nothing to do with the book.. enjoy the book.. spend any amount because it’s worth it

I have a long history of acting first and thinking it through later. In fact, I'm the definition of a screw up. Case in point - I’m having a baby with a woman I can’t stand, my ex is now my best friend’s wife, and I’m in love with a woman I can never have. My biggest secret is falling for my best friend’s sister 12 years ago. My biggest mistake is thinking I could live without her. And now my biggest regret is the look on her face the moment I tell everyone I’m already married to the woman they hate most.
