This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

I fell in love with my best friend but he didn't love me back. Sounds like a cheesy line from a country song, right? Too bad it's the story of my life. I thought that I'd moved on, swore he was the one. But that facade began to fade in the flash of a half-carat diamond ring. Now years later, here I am, running back to the boy who broke my adolescent heart, hoping that just maybe, he'll be the one to piece it back together... 

I fell in love with my best friend while she fell in love with him. Ironically, it was my own damn fault. I practically served her up on a silver platter. So I turned to my second love, basketball, while moving across the country to escape. For years, I've been sitting on the sidelines - watching, waiting. Now it's time to make my move. No more fouling out. This time, I'm going to score. Contains mature themes.

Love Ali & Colt!

Loved the story and the narrators! The thing I like most about this book is you get the entire story about them, the past, current and a great ending before the epilog. Seems like most love stories have the happy ending the last 30 minutes of the story without getting enough of all the love and feels, this one does not do that and its very refreshing. I loved the characters and they performance was stellar! made you feel the love between them. Most definitely worth the credit!

Cliche story!

I am going to be honest and say the only reason I got this audible is to listen to Jakobi's voice! It is absolutely wonderful! The story is romantic and all! I just love Jakobi's voice!

Just as good as the book!!!!

Loved everything, the narrators were awesome, I own a paper copy of the book and loved it then, and now, it makes it better, and yes I would highly recommend this book and the other other one coming up Boomerangs is funny as hell and a well written romantic comedy, just loved it, again, and I did lend a friend a copy of the book, which in turn she is buying the audio book. Thanks Heather. Maria

Just NO!!!!

This book was frustratingly horrible! I can't stand the constant crying and angst. I couldn't stomach finishing this book.

Ugh,....

I guess I should start by saying I have zero problems with the narration. The narrators were great but I don’t think they could have saved this book for me. I was just not a fan. I had zero interest in Alexis and Colton and I didn’t care whether they got their happy ending.

It was fine.

As 54 year old woman, I would say this book is primarily written for a younger, 20+ year old audience.

Did Not Like This Book

I am a big fan of Jakobi Diem but even his great narration couldn't save this story. The story was predictable that I skipped ahead chapters and didn't feel that I'd missed anything speaks volumes. Not a fan of this book

Absolutely phenomenal!!

This was my first time listening to this duet of narrators. They completely nailed every word and emotion of these characters! This audio made me fall in love with this book even more !

Too much crying

I got so tired of listening to the girl cry over everything. Don't ever listen to people's advice to make someone jealous! Than never works out. I bet this book to hear the narrator Jacobi Diem whom I like to listen to, and he didn't disappoint even though he was brief. I even liked listening to Vanessa but I didn't like her character that much. Ok story
