Picture this - I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I'm good and ready this time around. After all, if you're going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops. There’s only one little problem. My college girlfriend isn't the one who shows up when I play my "I'll do anything to win you back" tune. The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore.

I can almost trust one of this authors books to be great. especially on Audible and this was no exception. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was it isn't my favorite but it is still really good. Great to listen while you are doing other things. -Dink

To get the ending they want, Lucy and Fisher will have to go back to the beginning. Through the good and the bad, they'll be reminded of why they always made their way back to each other, and why this time, one way or another, it will be the last time.

I always get weary when I read a blurb that the story's character has PTSD from war. It can be done really good or really had. I have to say this was very well written. I love listening to books narrated by Andi Arndt and she was great as always, but this was a first for Zachary Webber and he was wonderful also. I do recommend this book. -Dink

Through scandal after scandal, addiction on top of addiction, a flurry of paparazzi hunt him as he fights to conquer his demons. She's a single mother, assistant manager at a grocery store, existing in monotony with her five-year-old daughter. Every day when she goes to work, lurid tabloids surround her, the face of a notorious bad boy haunting her from their covers.

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar. He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out. When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight -- telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass. You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend-smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married. He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done.

Great story, great narrators. I love Sebyo and Andi together. The characters had good chemistry also. I listened to the first 5 hrs while driving on HWY 5 going from L.A. to San Jose and it kept me so entertained, I didn't stop but 1 time for gas. This is an easy read with a happily ever after. I would just like to know what happened to Professor Pink. -Dink.

You're not supposed to want the one who torments you. When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn't prepared for how much of a jerk he'd be. I hated that he took it out on me because he didn't want to be here. I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room. But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him.

Rush: Women in his bed, celebs and rockers in his chair and a killer bank account at his disposal, life is pretty freaking swell. Then she walks back into it again. With her mismatched eyes, perfect pink mouth and a laugh that still haunts him, she gave him nothing but marvelous misery. Now she wants his hands on her again. Not for pleasure, but for pain. For Ink. A bleeding heart to match the one she left him with five years ago.

We were 16 the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched. I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering. Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma. Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact. Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets. She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her. I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains: She’s mine.

New year. New place. New me. Right? Wrong. And all because of Shay Coleman. Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. I hated him on sight...and he was about to break all my rules.

As I started listening the first hour I felt it dragged and had too many characters. It didn't take long for me to figure out what was going on. Good writing. A storyline that really hits with today's #Metoo movement without all the sensationalism that is in the media. This is what college is really like, and it isn't always easy. Author did a good job of providing a history of the characters and why the heroine is so scared of commitment. I would recommend especially if you are in your late teens (over 18) or twenties. Yet a 45 yr old mom with college kids enjoyed this also. -dink

I proposed on our first date. She laughed and told me I was insane. Less than a day later, she said yes. It was a whirlwind, but we were happy. Until we got greedy and wanted a family. It was a life I couldn't give her, not for lack of trying. Fertility just wasn't on our side.

Growing up, the three of us were friends. He was the nerd. I was the playboy. She was the beauty. Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied. I went off to college, and he got the girl. Amber never knew how I felt. They were together for years - before he broke her heart. Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

It really did have me questioning who Amber was going to choose in the end. I enjoyed how Milo acted in the story with his Autism, very true to the disorder. Also with Christine. Alzheimer's is hard. Even though we know what happens to him, I would love to hear the story about the guy that didn't get picked. -Dink
