Publisher's Summary

When Lucy Hawkins receives a job offer in San Francisco, she can't wait to spread her wings and leave her small Virginia hometown behind. Her close-knit family supports her as best they can, by handing over the keys to a station wagon that's seen better days. The catch? The cross-country trip comes with a traveling companion: her older brother's best friend, a.k.a. the guy who took Lucy's virginity hours before breaking her heart. 

After spending the past four years and every last dime caring for his sick father, Reece Sullivan will do just about anything to break free of the painful memories - even if it means a two-week road trip with the one girl who ever made it past his carefully guarded exterior. But after long days of bickering in the car turn into steamy nights in secluded motel rooms, Reece learns that, when it comes to Lucy, their story is far from over. And this time, they just might have a shot at a happy ending. 

Contains mature themes.

Totally and Completely Nerve-wrecking

Lauren Layne why? It's hard for me to understand or champion the couple being together. The only thing about Reece that made me feel that he was worthy of Lucy was Lucy. Lucy's childhood crush should be that and only that. I spent the whole story hoping that Reece's anger and betrayal would make sense or be justified and it never really seems to happen to me. On top of that, it was drawn out in a kind of angsty and dramatic way that took away instead of add to the story. All broken inner thoughts and no communication made it so the couple had no chemistry. I had to skip through the sexy times because I just didn't feel that they belonged there. I hate giving such a bad review but I'd say there are better choices for your credits sadly this wasn't part of the romance package so it doesn't even have that redeeming quality. Also, Rudy Sanda didn't help matters his accents and different voice were terrible had it read his part straight out it would have been more tolerable because his normal part wasn't swoon-worthy but they did the job.

Great story, horrible narration

I thought that this was a great story but the accents were almost unbearable. They tried to do these fake southern accents and when they would change their voice for the other character it was horrible. Fake the time and read the book, don’t bother with listening to it.

Not the best narrator

The story is elementary, a decent mental check out book. The male narrator’s accents are all wrong. It’s driving me nuts.

Awful Southern accents.

The story was so-so. The southern accents were horrible, inaccurate and insulting. Better narration would have made it more tolerable.

The narration is so so soooo bad.

I loved the story, but I had the hardest time getting through it with the horrible fake southern accents of the readers. Their southern accents that go in and out in a deep back woods hick sort of way made me cringe the entire way through the book. It was like Kernel Sanders was reading the book... I craved chicken the entire time.

The. Accents. Are. GARBAGE!!

I can say the book was pretty okay. The story was cute and had its funny moments. BUT the HORRIBLE COUNTRY ACCENTS made me picture overalls, missing teeth, plaid shirts, pet pigs and tractors. I mean I hear the Beverly Hillbillies music in the background.

Horrible narration

Even though the story was okay, (just ok) it was almost impossible to get through it because of the tragically cheesy and sappy as well as completely inaccurate “southern” accents of both narrators. I really tried...I did. But in the end, I just couldn’t finish it. When I think of what Jacob Morgan would have done with this story...well...it’s a crime that it was butchered so badly when wonderfully talented and versatile actors are available who truly bring a story to life in an authentic and believable way. To the authors who want their work to be an audio book: NARRATION IS EVERYTHING.

Hotheads ahead!

Woooo their ability to argue is unrelenting! I loved the story and the backstory to their relationship! The accents were annoying but being from the south it wasn’t too horrible! Lauren Layne is proving to be one of my favorite authors! On the the next book!

This series is going downhill....

The first 2 books were decent in this series, but this one just made me cringe.
The accents were awful! Ridiculously overdone and hard to listen to.

The story itself could have been so much better and once again - a story line driven by people who 'run away, rather than talking to the person they supposedly love sooooooo much.' UGH.

I will give #4 in the series a shot, but if it is as bad as this one I will quit it.
