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.

Sweet Friendship Shattered By What?


I read 8 Weeks (book one) in this series quite a while ago and enjoyed it immensely. I didn't realize that there were seven books in the series until I had the opportunity to *listen to this book in exchange for a review.

Book 5 in the series chronicles the lives of Craig and Gwendolyn from the time they are 10 years old to present day (their 20th year.)

Craig and Gwen went from best friends who shared everything to people who barely spoke due to a wall Gwen has put up. After constantly trying to get her to break down that wall with no luck, Craig continues to focus on his baseball career. That dream is met when he gets to play college ball for an NCAA team.

Gwendolyn throws herself into photography and keeps the reason for the wall is to herself. Not even her closest friends or family know why her feelings have changed for Craig. Or have they?

This has the feel of a young adult romance in everything but the mature themes and language. I do not usually care for young adult books but this series (or the two books I've listened to) are an exception. There is too much in mature scenes and language to remove them and call it young adult – it would also kill the story line.

I look forward to listening to the other books in the series!

Bethany Lopez and Honey St. Dennis are a wonderful team.
