They were best friends until they became roommates. Booker Harris has spent the last several years pushing himself to become the best goalkeeper in the Championship League. Tired of living in the shadows of his headline-splashing brothers, he has finally carved a path of his own. As a child, Poppy McAdams was content in her own little make-believe world, until the boy next door with dimples and pained eyes came barreling into her makeshift fort demanding all her attention. Best friends for most of their lives, everything changes when Poppy abruptly leaves London for University. Now she is back, and gone is the awkward girl from Booker's youth.

After hearing Booker and Poppy in Duet... I may never want to listen to another audiobook spoken in the old tired way. Listening to my favorite characters as they go back and forth (think of it more like a play. You get to hear all the sighs and laughter and anguish...) it just brings the book more to life than ever before.

Every time a new Harris Brothers book hits my kindle, I giggle with glee. And I knew that Booker (being the baby of the family) was going to be a great story. I absolutely adored Booker and Poppy's story. This book will take you on a ride of emotions as these two lifelong friends reconnect.

Booker and Poppy have been friends since childhood. Neighbors and mates until all of a sudden Poppy left for Germany at the age of 18 leaving Booker hurt and confused. Now six years later Poppy is back and Booker sees this as a chance to reconnect and so he invites Poppy to move in with him while she is waiting for her flat to become ready in a few months instead of driving from her parent's house into the city.

Even with the uncertainty of the past between these two, they soon find out that the feeling they had always suppressed soon come to a head.

Booker is afraid to lose Poppy again, but can Poppy put her feeling aside and just be the friend that Booker thinks he needs, or will she be able to convince him that they would be so much better as more.

I highly recommend this series and Amy especially this audio series! Those British accents will have you melting!

The storyline was great. I am a huge fan of Amy Daws but the voice just didn't connect for me with the character. She sounded older than the leads actual age. And I really have a hard time with one actor playing both male and female in a duel POV. She was just too whiny in the female parts and not deep enough for the male. I like to get lost in a book and this just made me want to cringe.

Seventeen years old when he broke my heart.

Seventeen days later when another picked up the pieces.

Seventeen years together.

Seventeen thousand problems.

Seventeen days of reliving my past and finding a new future.

Seventeen minutes until it all went up in flames.

Seventeen breaths until I took my last.

This is my story, and it's going to burn.

After losing his best friend to another guy, the notoriously too-confident Max Emory suddenly feels lost. He may have devastatingly good looks, an abundance of charm, and a claim to one of the biggest hotel empires around, but he has no ambition anymore. So when his fed-up friends decide they've had enough of his moping, they sign him up to be the next bachelor on the reality series Love Island.

Loved this story about redemption, second chances and starting new. Logan was the local playboy.. Clare the young widow, thinking she had already found her soul mate but now he was gone.

Both help each other move past their failures and insecurities and guide each other towards a love that neither thought they deserved.

The narrators were great and kept me interested and ready for more.

Kate Sedgwick's life has been anything but typical. She's endured hardship and tragedy, but throughout it all she remains happy and optimistic (there's a reason her best friend, Gus, calls her Bright Side). Kate is strong willed, funny, smart, and musically gifted. She's also never believed in love. So when Kate leaves San Diego to attend college in the small town of Grant, Minnesota, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with Keller Banks.
