l loved this book's storyline and Sebastian's narration . I have read & listened to several of Lauren Blakely's books and I have loved most of them. While I prefer dual narrations, typically in audio books when there is going to only be one they have to be great at reading and being in character. Sebastian never disappoints! I almost prefer a man's narration over a female's when there is only going to be one. I hope there will be many more pairings with Lauren and Sebastian!

What a shocker! I really thought I had it figured out- what I thought was going to be the ending but it came out of left field! I thought I could have predicted the whole story and how it was going to end and what it was really all about about midway through.... I couldn't imagine what another 8 hours of listening time could contain- yet I stand corrected! The story was a little slow getting into the main substance of the whole relationship between Gwen and Barrett but if you had listened to the 1st book it's just how the author writes. I couldn't figure out how these characters were connected to the 1st book until a few hours in... So just give it time to connect the stories. Overall I enjoyed the book. 😀

Oh the feels!

Such an emotional rollercoaster- in a good way! I felt like I was lost during the 1st half of the book but it gave the overall background story of how the 2 main characters are connected. I could have lived without the "it can't be true" chapter... not sure it was a total chapter but it felt long. I continued listening though and am glad I did. Such an emotion filled book and the narrators did a great job putting themselves into the characters! Definitely were some unexpected surprises throughout the whole book. Sex scenes were intense! Not the typical boy meets girl, girl swoons over boy, and happily ever after- this book has substance to it! Happy I took a chance with this book, I get tired of the same storyline all the time. This definitely was a change!

I am a sucker for friends to lovers stories. Lauren Blakely's books never disappoint... While I could definitely predict some of the outcomes it didn't make it any less enjoyable! Sebastian York's narration is spot on for her books! I totally love hearing him read, it never sounds forced or out of character!

A different kind of story

Would have been better if read by 2 narrators showing each side of the storyline, not just Kennedy. Seriously thought a few times it was going to be a bad ending- thank goodness if worked it's way out. This book definitely was a different kind of story, the characters didn't have the immediate knowing of love toward each other but let it grow... like it can happen in real life..
*Does have talks of rape and abuse, so that could be a trigger for someone if not prepared.

I loved this book! I was so excited to have a strong female embrace her life and sexuality. Not being the top shy, timid or inexperienced female that is so commonly found in these romance books! Also, it wasn't so predictable as many are. Lots of different characters with various personalities that add to the main characters storyline. Great book from beginning to end- not once did I think, I didn't want to finish it (as some books are the same storyline just with different characters and are so predictable you just want it to end). Highly recommended!

I was happy to find this series in a audiobook, I have previously read the books and I wanted to know if my imagined interpretation was the same. It was very close to all the voices! It's a sweet series nothing over the top with this 2nd book.

Absolutely loved this book! Literally had laugh out loud moments, felt the emotions of the characters, and it had an adorable story line.

I found this book searching for narrations by Luci Christian and was definitely not disappointed! She really makes the characters come to life and I can relate to the sarcasm and various emotions she portrays in the books!

Really sweet love story, not overly graphic, narrators did an excellent job expressing emotions of characters where you could really get into it.
