Audio crack!

Seriously, this series is so addicting! It’s like a soap opera - with all the drama and angst and villains and heroes. And I can NOT get enough of it!

I fell so in love with Nolan and Reed’s story in Waiting on the Sidelines And was so happy to get more of them in Going Long. The ride was just as bumpy this time as it was in the first book, but I never wanted it to end. I mean, I maybe sometimes wanted to give them a good shake, but I still rooted for them every step of the way.

Emotional and compelling and beautifully narrated, this was another huge Ginger Scott got for me!

Going Long

Book 1 was Nolan and Reed in High School and how they came to be.
This book is all about College, which I loved. But boy oh boy was I frustrated with the lack of COMMUNICATION!!! I can’t tell you how many times I threw my hands up in the air and yelled would you two just TALK to one another.

But it makes for an interesting book right because I couldn’t put it DOWN nope I couldn’t I was sucked in wanting to know what the heck was going to happen next.

LOVED that we had 2 narrators <3 I really think James did an awesome job I already loved Laura’s performance from book 1 so it stands she does a great job in book 2.

Growing Pains

After the first installment of this series it took me a couple of weeks to go back to it because I had to digest the teenage angst of book 1. Now let me start by saying what a wonderful job these narrators do. Again, Laura Darnell narrated a convincing Nolan and I was extremely impressed with the male narrator, James Fouhey who I hadn't heard before. On to the story of GOING LONG...

Remember how I told you in my review for WAITING ON THE SIDELINES that I was conflicted about Reed? He SO redeemed himself. He was understanding, adoring and an all around good boyfriend for his girl. He isn't perfect so he makes a few mistakes along the way but that's alright - nothing was bad enough to make me feel anger towards him as I did in Waiting on the Sidelines.

Nolan had to go through so much. To me, it was perfectly understandable why she needed to come to terms with the events in her life until she could talk to Reed about it. At no point I felt there was a lack of communication on her side. In fact, it was again outside forces who led to their relationship hiatus and it's something that depressed me a little bit.

These two had to come to terms with tragedy and on top of that they have to deal with two douchebag characters who did nothing but stir up trouble. Look, I love my angst in books but I have to admit that this was a recurring theme. In the first book Ginger Scott gave us a girl who drove a wedge between Nolan and Reed. This time it's Gavin. I just thought it was a little too convenient and that it turned the angst into drama. And Reed's brother? I wanted to throw my phone against the wall!

All that notwithstanding I absolutely enjoyed GOING LONG. Ginger Scott really writes beautiful stories with likable characters. She let Nolan and Reed grow up in this installment and it's palpable how much they have grown. Now I hope that THE HAIL MARY will continue to impress me!

Good Book

This was a good book, it showed the importance of communication in any relationship is key. These two could have avoided many problems and heartaches if they asked questions when in doubt and not assumed anything. But you live and learn.

Wonderful Story

Just a good story, it caused some tears and some laughs.
May be a young persons story but as an older person it worked for me!

1st review.

The story line is believable. High school sweet hearts and a happy ending. What is interesting is the self doubt, body image, and trying to fit in in high school. The author did a great a job of Nolan’s insecurities. These are issues many teenagers face especially when there is a cool and good looking dude in the way.

frustrating but great!

I literally sat there yelling at the characters throughout this book 😡 😟🙄 I even had to fast forward through some of Nolan's freaking sessions because she annoyed me so much with her stupidity. Reed also passed me off a few times, but that just goes to show how good this book was I laughed & teared up and smiled. got fully immersed in the story.

Love these kids' love story!

I will say that Book 2 was not as good as Book 1 but I still loved it! The main characters are maturing in Book 2 so I cant wait to read Book 3. No spoiler- but I cant wait to see what the cliff hanger in Book 2 leads to in Book 3!

Great continuation

This is a great continuation to the first. I love the growth and getting both POVs in this one. I really wanted to smack them but again a good story with great characters and narrators.
