Publisher's Summary

A new novel by the USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author of The Breathing Series...

What if you had a second chance to meet someone for the first time?

Cal Logan is shocked to see Nicole Bentley sitting across from him at a coffee shop thousands of miles from their hometown. After all, no one has seen or heard from her since they graduated over a year ago.

Except this girl isn't Nicole.

She looks exactly like Cal's shy childhood crush, but her name is Nyelle Preston and she has no idea who he is. This girl is impulsive and daring, her passion for life infectious. The complete opposite of Nicole. Cal finds himself utterly fascinated - and falling hard. But Nyelle is also extremely secretive. And the closer he comes to finding out what she's hiding, the less he wants to know.

When the secrets from the past and present collide, one thing becomes clear: Nothing is what it seems.

Predictable

Not a believable story..her other books were great but this one was disappointing. The audio for this is terrible...I never knew who was talking, used the same voice for everyone ... it made a bad book even worse

I liked the story but listening to it was hard for me.

There are lots of time jumps in this novel as well as memory flashbacks so it was confusing at times. I felt that there could have been more emphasis during some of these parts especially the memory flashbacks so that it's easier to recognize when listening. Overall the story was good but didn't blow me away like her "breathing series"

Chaotic and crazy

I love RD's Breathe Series....but this was a chaotic book with numerous branches that never develop. The explanation of what has really happened comes out of left field and really is not believable at all. Honestly I was feeling there was a major mental health twist....which honestly may have made more sense. The performance is by far the WORST part. There is only a female performer....although a good bit of the book is from the male perspective. The performer tries to use several versions of her voice does not change enough and the flashbacks and character changes have no warning. I desperately wanted to know why/if the the girl was his childhood friend....but it was painful to accomplish.

Great Story!

I didn't think this story would be as good as it was. The author does a great job at keeping readers on their toes. Even though the story is ultimately a love story, It's driven by the mystery of who Nyell is, and what happened in the past.
It started slow, but I was engaged through most of the story and very entertained!

Good book<br />

This was a really sweet story. Interesting characters. I didn't enjoy it as much as her Breathe series, but still well written.

All the What Ifs

Rebecca Donovan has done a superb job with this book and the Breathing series as well. It will appeal to young adult and grownups as well. The book uses the premise of second chances, regrets, and getting life right.

Can't quite describe...a good solid enjoyable book

Would you listen to What If again? Why?

Yes. It had depth, you could easily pick up something you missed the first time round.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nyelle, filled with mystery but life. She doesn't ask "what if" questions, she just does it, she goes with her heart and yes it might be for the wrong reasons but she loves her life how she wants.

Which character – as performed by Noelle Kayser – was your favorite?

Probably Cal. He's such a nice genuine guy. Doesn't try to act macho but is a strong, caring, sensitive, guy who speaks his mind and doesn't mind feeling.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes but it would be a total spoiler!!!

Any additional comments?

A great read! I loved Rebecca Donegan for her first series which I've listened to about 4 times! When I saw she had another I was weary it wouldn't live up to my expectations. It wasn't as good as the Breathing series but it certainly was a strong contender. At the end of the book I was left with a smile on my face and still wanting more!
