Publisher's Summary

I lived in paradise, and I loved Spencer Pierce.

At 14, my life was perfect. The beach was my playground, and the boy who stole my heart lived just around the corner. But perfect never lasts. In one horrifying moment, I lost it all. My family was destroyed, and the boy I believed in turned his back on me. Paradise became a nightmare.

That was five years ago. Everything changed when we moved from our home by the sea. I've changed, and I don't like who I've become. I miss the smiling, carefree beach girl who disappeared that terrible night. I want to find her again. I want to face the people we ran from so long ago. Most of all, I have to face Spencer. So I can prove that when he broke my heart, he didn't break me.

But when I see him again, Spencer Pierce is no longer the boy from my memories. He's now a man who could devastate me if I let him. He watches me when he thinks I'm not looking. There's regret written on his face when he's near. Each time I see him, my heart aches for what might have been, and I think his does too. How can I convince myself I'm over him when I suspect he never got over me?

    Story
    "Sweet Contemporary Romance With Lots of Drama"

    This was a sweet slow building romance from childhood friends that were scarred by their past. They went through a lot together and before their friendship could grow into something more, tragedy struck and they were pulled apart by circumstances.

    Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

    The story drew me in and kept me interested all the way to one of the sweetest conclusions I have heard. The characters were well developed and the romance picks up towards the end with some much waited special moments between Sarah and Spencer. There is quite a bit of drama and heartache but it is worth sticking with it until the end.

    "Great read"
    Any additional comments?

    Play of Light by Debra Doxer was a good book. Sarah met Spencer and knew she would love him forever. Everything changed in an instant. Five years later and they meet again but maybe it is what both needed. I loved reading this book.

    "Great story from a new-to-me author"
    Would you listen to Play of Light again? Why?

    I was given a free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I enjoyed the story very much. The characters drew me in right from the start, and I appreciated that there weren't a lot of contrived conflicts added to Sarah and Spencer's relationship after they finally recognized their feelings for each other. I was actually sorry when the audiobook ended (I hadn't realized how close I was) because I loved knowing the two main characters. However, I did not like the narration. I gave the performance 4 stars because there was nothing technically wrong with it, I just really didn't like it. The narrator's accent is not American, and I was confused when she first mentioned the geographic location not too far into the book, because I had no idea it was taking place in New England (and partly in Michigan). So I felt throughout the book that something was off. I also don't personally enjoy when the narrator reads an attribution such as, "she laughed." and then laughs. But I will definitely seek out other books by Debra Doxer. The words Play of Light refer (I'm pretty sure), to the light on the beach where the two main characters often meet, and the many beautiful images scattered throughout the story through Sara's artistic interpretation helped keep me riveted to the story in spite of my unhappiness with the narration.

    "Brilliant"

    Took me awhile to get through this one. The narration was confusing to me, not sure what the purpose of the accent was. That being said the narrator was genius! Performance was outstanding! She was spot on with emotions. This author was a first for me and I look forward to more!

    Story
    "A Coming Of Age With A Couple Of Sharp Turns"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Loved the ending!


    What about Leanne Yau’s performance did you like?

    Leanne did a great job but what threw me off with regards to this story was the English accent.


    Could you see Play of Light being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could see this as a Freeform channel movie


    Any additional comments?

    I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.This is my first read by this author and it won't be my last. I really enjoyed the story and the characters. The author did a great job with the hard subjects that were brought up. Going into this I wasn't sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. If your looking for a book thats sweet, heart breaking and healing this is for you.

    "Play of Light"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes.

    Play of Light is an intense second chance romance with characters grow, learn what it is to love, forgive and trust again.

    I liked both Sarah and Spencer. I knew they will have a hard road towards an HEA but the author made the journey worthwhile.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Leanne Yau?

    Yes.

    Leanne Yau narrated the book in a beautiful way that added to my enjoyment of it.
