Publisher's Summary

You know her side of the story, now learn his.

"It was useless. I felt branded beneath my skin by a girl who left without even saying goodbye."

When Will Price was assigned a partner for a sixth-grade class project, he had no idea she would become his best friend. After years of friendship, she eventually became so much more. Then, one day she left with no explanation.

Will's life shattered right before his eyes and he was left alone to pick up the pieces. Floundering, Will must figure out a way to carry on, to find a way to exist without her.

Seven years later, a chance encounter leaves him desperate to get her back. He has one week to make her his again. Not everyone gets a second chance with the love of their life and Will is determined to never lose her again.

TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT

The first book disappointed me, but I thought maybe it would get better so I got this one. No luck, if Book one was dissapointing then book 2 was REALLY disappointing. All this was is Book one, this time from his perspective. No interested, it was boring to me.

His Side of the Story

Carey Heywood was a new author for me when I read book one, Him. Both books, Him and Her had been sitting in my Audible library untouched for a while. I needed something new so I settled on this Duet and they were delightful. The writing is good and the narration was perfect for these stories. Her is Will’s story. It is definitely a coming of age story with lots of teenage angst dealing with a teen boy’s love and sexual awakening which had some charming and touching moments. Will is not just a teenage horn dog though there is a bit of that. He is the most popular boy in school who is falling in love its his best friend, Sarah. Sarah is a bit of a wallflower who has secretly loved Will since the moment they met. The book has many misunderstandings and lies as many romance novels are. Over the course of the story both Sarah and Will grow up, become decent humans and gain success in their careers. The characters are strong and interesting. The secondary characters are well written and add much to the main characters lives and stories. The women are a little bit stereotypical in the high school era but less so as they grew up. Now a word about the narration. In book two Christian Fox reminded me of why I think had has one of the sexiest voices in audiobook narration today. The subtle yet distinct changes in Will as he matures were perfect. By the end of the book I was ready for the cold shower. I am late to the game with this author but plan to read more of her work. She has too few books in audiobook format and I hope more of her work is recorded over time.
