Publisher's Summary

A lot can happen in 10 years, and Gwen and Craig have been there for each other through it all, from meeting on the playground to juggling college finals. But their long-standing friendship hasn't been without its challenges.

Gwen keeps her emotions locked down tight, and when someone hurts her, she shuts down and shuts them out. Craig has always been her hero, but when one night leaves her broken, she realizes he has the power to hurt her the most.

Unable to get past Gwen's emotional barriers, Craig focuses on baseball and reaching for his dreams, but he misses his best friend. He wonders if he'll ever have the same relationship he did with the girl he met 10 years ago.

When the barriers finally come down and their true feelings are revealed, will they finally become the couple everyone says they're destined to be, or will the darkness from Gwen's past tear them apart forever?

Warning: this story is meant for listeners 18 and older.

Emotional and heartwarming friends-to-lovers story

I listened to the audio of 10 Years by Bethany Lopez and absolutely loved it. Honey St. Dennis did an absolutely amazing job bringing Craig and Gwen to life in their emotional and charming story. We have seen them throughout the previous 4 books in the series but had no idea how heartbreaking and heartwarming their journey would be. Craig and Gwen met when they were 10 years old. Craig is Cal’s younger brother (8 weeks) and Gabby’s younger sister (42 Hours) and have been inseparable best friends ever since. They have always been there for each other and their friends. But before starting college, Gwen pulled away and barely acknowledges Craig and he has no idea why. Can he break down the barriers between them or is it too late? Gwen was caring and kind, but also kept so much of herself buried. How could she give anyone the chance to hurt her? Craig was sweet, kind, and protective. He was determined to breakthrough to Gwen and find the future he always dreamed of sharing with her. Can he do it or is too late? 10 Years was an emotional read with so many feels. I loved the families and friendships in this series and highly recommend it! Happy listening!

A story that will test the time of friendship...

Would you try another book from Bethany Lopez and/or Honey St. Dennis?

I have been a fan of Bethany Lopez's books for some time now and will continue to read and/or listen to anything she writes.

As for the performance by Honey St. Dennis it would depend on the story she is narrating. As my first time listening to her it was not one that I could fully get into.

What didn’t you like about Honey St. Dennis’s performance?

I am not a fan of this narration. The flow of the story felt somewhat rush, sounded the same throughout the read, and did not give me any feels when listening to a story being told. For this particular book I had preferred reading it on my own.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this 4 stars book about long-term friendships and how over time things happen and people grow up and whether to see if time can truly test them. Needless to say in Gwen and Craig’s story…years have past and they both have feelings for more with one another but something is holding them back. Their story is more than just the typical breaking of their friendship if things turn bad it is that if walls are not broken down it can be driven to despair. With out revealing anything I will note that some scenes can affect the faint of heart, which in turn will either make or break the long-term friendship.

Ten Years of Love and Friendship

The trauma of a parents divorce...meeting a boy at 10 who swore to have her back no matter what. A sweet story of childhood friends and what occurs over 10 years as they go up. Traumas, misunderstandings and failure to talk cause a rift in their friendship but at 20 they begin to heal. A story that draws you in and causes you to care for the couple..well written. The narrator has a nice voice, well done for this story..the only issue I had was she seemed to speed through and I would have enjoyed more had she slowed down. I received a free audiobook for an honest and voluntary review.

10 Years

Wow. Holding in so much pain and not knowing how to let it out or lean on your friends for support is tragic in its own way and we see how it can effect both sides with this book. Bethany is able to weave such a sad story into happiness in the end with such ease that you find yourself cheering for these characters the whole time. I think this book is by far my favorite so far as I listen to this series, but that can definitely change by the time I listen to the next.

A well told story covering the 10 years Gwen & Craig have known each other using flashbacks. These two belong together yet situations can and do block their way. It takes courage and strength to face them and share them with each other.

Great as a Stand-Alone or in the Series

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. I have listened to this book and one other in the series and was pleased to find that I didn't have to know the stories that came before or after. I have added one or two more from the series where I can get on sale, and added the remaining books to my wishlist. The characters and stories have peeked my interest and I want more.

Any additional comments?

I wasn't sure I would like this, and I was happy to find I did. its a sweet story line. However, the audio was kind of slow and hard to get into, and the flash backs were not always clear.
With that being said, this is worth the read, its a fun plot and interesting read.
I was given this free copy, in return for my unbiased review

Sweet love story

I was gifted this audio ARC for a honest and unbiased review from the author/narrator
This is my first read by Bethany and I look forward to checking out the rest of this series. This can be read as a standalone. This story is a heart warming story of a couple over a 10 year period. I enjoyed Honey St Dennis . She did an awesome job at differentiating between the male and female roles without pausing.
Yes take a chance on this series

Friends To Lovers Romance

Any additional comments?

10 Years is Book 5 in the Time For Love series and is a standalone. An event in Gwen's past has left her shy and guarded. She and Craig become best friends until Craig's mistake leaves him shut out of her life. After years of loving each other, will they finally be able to admit their feelings or will they throw it all away?

I enjoyed Gwen and Craig's story and loved the flashbacks to their youth. The narration was very well done and it was easy to distinguish between the characters. I would recommend 10 Years.

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.
