Publisher's Summary

I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.

I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I've poured my soul into my music, but I've never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile.

And now I'm going back.

After 10 years.

I hope I can explain that after all this time.

I still want her to be my forever girl.

different from the movie but still great read

there are some differences though still many similarities with the movie. I picked up the book because the movie was so sweet and funny. The book had much more plot with more side characters and a son instead of a daughter. The story really gets into more of their lives and the struggle to forgive. The situation with his parents in the movie is sort of reversed as well. Both are alive but he hates his father's (not a preacher in the books) condemning ways and struggles to forgive his mother's allowance of what his father has done. there are many of the bits of the movie where they took it from the book like the voicemail, his friend Mason's death, parts of their date etc though the simplified much of the book to make a sweet romantic movie. The way the brother was in the movie had sort of creeped me out because he was so over bearing and possessive of Josie- it's cause the part in the book was written as her current boyfriend so made much more sense. All in all I adore the movie and yet still find myself intrigued but the muchly different plot of the book. I plan on picking up the rest of the series now.

The Wrong Guy Got The Girl

Liam is a jerk. He treats women like tissues then throws them away. We're supposed to feel sorry for him, because he chose to stay away ftom his hometown for 10 years?

Then there's Nick, the guy who dated Josie and treated her son like his own for 6 years. As soon as Liam shows up, Josie pulls away from him. He responded poorly, but with good intentions. If Josie would have talked to him more often and honestly, their relationship would have survived.

I can't believe she chose the worldclass jerk over the nice guy.

Beaumont Series Again

I had already purchased this book in 2013 same name different cover. I think Audible should show all of our purchases on authors page & advise that we have the same book.

Good Lord this book was awful.

Absolutely awful! I only purchased this book because of the movie trailer, which I’m considering not wasting my money.. if it’s ANYTHING like the book. Starting at the characters, Liam is a complete tool. JoJo is just.. completely unrealistic. The story is predictable and slow. I usually adore these cheesy love stories but this is horrible. I had to literally FORCE myself to finish even though I found myself throwing up in my mouth at the end.

Nothing like the movie

I listened to the book part way through before seeing the movie, so I was able to appreciate each as individual projects. However, if you’re a fan of the movie you should know that other than the basic concept of lovers coming face to face after a decade, and a famous singer returning home to learn he has a child, the two works share little in common. But the book was worth buying on sale.

Okay

Obvious plot line, but really well narrated and nicely written. An easy book but not a series I’ll continue with.
