Publisher's Summary

Almost three years ago, a car crash took Audrey's dad and scarred her for life. Now 18, she returns to her hometown for the first time after the accident.

She's here to start again. Go to college and have fun. Make new friends. Get over the past. But the past won't let go.

Asher is here - her first kiss, her first heartbreak. More handsome and distant than ever, he's still the boy who used to be her best friend. That was before he changed into someone she hardly knows anymore - the boy who started getting into fights and gave her the cold shoulder for years.

Asher isn't what she needs. In fact, she hates him and should try her best to keep away from him.

Yet her body doesn't seem to care about how she feels, and maybe, just maybe this time her body got it right. Not that she has much of a choice. Asher draws her like a bright flame, and if she isn't careful, she'll burn.

And that may not be such a bad thing after all....

Standalone novel. No cliffhanger. Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature listeners only. Not intended for young listeners.

Outrageously stupid decisions on repeat.

I just finished a book I adored by this author so I had high hopes. Umm, this book is horrible. I know she is writing about late teens to early twenties but there is very little depth to anyone and they are all idiots. indecision, angst, more angst, plot holes, more angst, life threatening bad decisions on repeat. I got nearly to the end and just had to stop listening. This book should be titled, 'Dude in distress with a death wish.'

Simple HEA

Sure tragic things happen in this book but all of it is very predictable. The character development is great however some of the decisions these "kids" make really tells you their age. Teenagers!! Uhhh

It's a cute story nonetheless. Don't expect heavy thinking on anyone's part. Go with the flow.

The narrators are great. They did an awesome job.

Enjoy!

really wanted to like this.

I really wanted to like this book but it really is too much young angst and very repetitive. The characters were very flat even with the development. It was almost all internal monologue on repeat. Got about halfway through but couldn't finish it.
Narrators were good atleast.

Boring

I just couldn't finish it. It is just juvenile and boring. The story revolves around a group of friends yet they know nothing about each other.

I liked it

This story was good. It held my attention from the start - which is good bc I return books that don’t capture me from the get-go. I wish the narrator had used different voices whenever he had 2 people conversing. It was difficult to follow since I had to guess who was speaking. But that was minor.

Decent story, unbelievable narrators.

The story was decent, short and straight to what you want. The thing I didn’t like was the ages they were supposed to be. They were supposed to be 18 but nothing in the story was believable for an 18 year old and the narrators sounded like they were in their late 30s-40s. It’s just my opinion but it’s hard to picture it how it’s supposed to be when I’ve got a man that sounds like he’s in his 40s and a woman that sounds at least 30. I like when the voices fit better. Their performance was good though, just not for the age. They were actually some of the better narrators I like to hear in the “romance nation”. Just not with this one for 18 year olds.

This was pretty good.

I didn’t always love the narrators. The make voice was too old sounding for an 18yr old boy and the girl voice was at times annoying.
The book it’s self was good. It is full of twists and turns. You always wondering what’s next. Looking forward to the next book.

Barely stop reading

could barely stop reading this story, and while I felt the end was rushed I can't find any fault with this author or her incredible way of telling the story. Hot and heavy.

Loved this Storyline!

Okay yes this storyline has so much angst and adult situations happening to young people! But, Asher and Audrey may be young but wow they are so mature and strong.
Great book and I love the secondary characters whose books I can’t wait to listen 🎧 to.

Emotional

This is a very emotional story. Asher went through so much abuse by his dad. It is a sad, emotional and relatable story the is worth reading. I could actually hear the pain in Asher's voice as I listen and it brought tears to my eyes. Thumbs up to the narrators.

Heartfelt connections

Amazing story, character depth and pace.

Jo Raven never fails to make complexities in her stories flow easily and with honesty and truth, not rushing or skipping emotional walls.

CJ Mission really puts his soul into this narration, it feels true and his changes in cadence are on point. He really brings Asher to life. I could listen to him for hours, and I did, completing this book in one sitting.
