Publisher's Summary

Zach
I just wanted to cheer her up. She was upset, so I offered to take her mind off things the best way I know how: in bed. But damn it, one night with her wasn’t nearly enough! I want more, and this has never happened to me before. So I made her another offer.… 

Scarlett
Another heartbreak. I’m not the one-night stand kinda girl. But I had heard the rumors about how amazing Zach was in bed, so I said yes to spending one night with him. After so many heartbreaks, maybe this was exactly what I needed, just a little bit of fun. But I don’t think one night with him is going to be enough.

Friends to Lovers

Great friends to lovers romance that takes you through a whirlwind of emotions. The story is much better than I had originally thought it was going to be. It is unlike many other books in this genre that I have read recently and that made me beyond happy! I felt like I devoured this book and was surprised when I finished and looked at the clock and realized I had read straight through for almost 4 hours!

The narration was really good! I can't believe how good Victoria Mei was at the male POV!

Can friends really become lovers?

This new adult novel focuses on Zach and Scarlett, two people in a group of college friends that hookup after a wedding. From the moment the two connect in the story, you begin to root for their success, but circumstances and stubbornness will keep them apart. I love stories like this, while some find the way this couple went about finally finding each other frustrating, I think it is real life honestly portrayed. Things are never fairy tale smooth, and both Zach and Scarlett contribute their own issues to their situation due to their insecurities. Giving the story that realistic quality, it is refreshing to have not only the hot scenes, but the consequences of decisions dealt with.

This is my first narration by Victoria Mei and I enjoyed her performance. She has a good pace, and her voices are easily discernible for each character. She is perfect for this new adult age and is able to give the story the emotion and feels to make it a satisfying listen.

Scarlett and Zach

I really enjoyed listening to Ms. Mei telling Scarlett and Zach's story. Warm, rich, versatile, perfect for listening for hours. I will definitely listen to more of her narrations.

A good friends to lovers romance with likeable characters, but I wanted to smack both Zach and Scarlett a few times LOL talk about misunderstandings and assumptions on both sides that create quite a few bumps on the way to HEA, which they eventually get.

It Could Be Better but It Could Be A LOT Worse!!

I enjoy friends to lovers stories and this one is a decent read. The only thing I would have liked is a bit more maturity between Scarlett and Zach. I liked the way the narrator read the story. She kept a good pace and even though I would have liked Zach's voice to have been a bit deeper, it was different enough from the female voice.

Sweet Friends to Lovers Story

This was my first Summer Cooper's book. This is a sweet friends to lovers story. I love the story of Zach and Scalett. The storyline is filled with drama, so much misunderstanding and also twists and turn. The story is well written and kept my attention from the first page until the end. I like the HEA and the epilogue. The narration is great and easy to listen, as always with Victoria Mei. I really enjoyed my listening.

F buddy indeed

This had a Contemporary romance feel but felt NA at times too even though I don't think it was intentional. I liked the narrator but I wish it'd been dual narrative. Plot was better than the romantic arc sometimes, but the characters made it work. I'd say it was between a 4-4.25.

A Compelling Listen

I was given this audiobook with a request for an honest review.

Likable characters even when they acted foolishly out of misunderstandings. Some of the story wasn't very realistic but it kept the drama up. The HEA seemed rushed and it missed an opportunity to throw in a little gut wrenching angst. There were a couple hot scenes but few and only in the beginning.

Good narration throughout.
Applause, and One Thumb Held High

Didn't really go into detail.

Thank you to Giselle Lumas for providing me with a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

Worth the Time is a coming of age story that follows Lindsey, a young girl trying to find herself as she changes from a teen to an adult. Lindsey is a lonely girl who has never met her father and isn't particularly close with her mother. When sent to a shelter for her community service, Lindsey meets Sutton and finds out that her life isn't actually so tough.

The Good Stuff
I really liked the balance between Lindsey's story of meeting her father and slowly building a relationship with Sutton. The backstory of Lindsay's father was really interesting and he was really likable.

The narrator, Giselle was very right for this story, she had a very calming voice and kept the dialogue flowing very well, even at points when it seemed to be a little forced and badly written.

Sutton was a really likable character. I'm so used to reading the shy girl falls for the popular boy but not so much the other way around. It was really interesting to read.

Not My Cup of Tea
As mentioned above, some of the dialogue didn't really seem to flow, the narrator did a great job of making it work but I think had I been reading it I may have given up because it just didn't seem natural.

When I read the write up for this story I wasn't aware that it was a Christian fiction.
I don't really mind a character having a religion - whether it's Christian, Jewish, Muslim...it adds to the character. This one, however, really went to town with teachings. After about halfway I was getting sick of hearing the word Jesus, Preacher and God. It was more or less the word out of every character's mouth.
This story would be perfect for someone who is a lot more interested in the Christian religion but for me, it did get very long and very annoying.

Overall Rating
The story that followed Lindsey was quite nice and well split between meeting her dad and learning more about Sutton. However, I did get very tired of the Christian talk and probably wouldn't have gotten so frustrated with the book had I known that it was very Christian themed. It would definitely be well suited as Young Adult Christian fiction, but it's just not for me.

Mills and boon would love it

From the first chapter you know pretty much what is going to happen, written a bit risky for the traditional mills and boon but at the end of the day it is a feel good book, happy ever after.
The narration I found terrible, the voice lacked power and conviction to put it bluntly a wet blanket.
If I had had a different book to listen too on my drive I would have changed it
