Publisher's Summary

You will never forget your first date, your first kiss, or your first love. You'll also never forget how it felt when it was torn apart.

Seventeen-year old Grace Hathaway does not give much thought to falling in love, until the day that Ian Taylor, rebel and misfit walks into her math class. From their first conversation, Grace is mesmerized by Ian's charisma and rock star facade.

Ian Taylor, a 17-year old kid from the wrong side of the tracks tries to ignore the feelings he has for Grace, but is captured by her caring, non-judgmental personality from the moment they meet. Grace becomes Ian's everything and there is nothing he will not do for her. Hurting her was never part of his plan.

Amazing

I read this book first and I didn't think I would get as emotional as I did reading it. WRONG! I was much more emotional. Kristin James did an awesome job with the emotions in her voice! This is one of my favorite books and now it's one of my favorite Audiobooks. Wow! Listening to this was great since when reading sometimes I would miss something but it seems I got a lot more listening to this. Thank you Marisa for making this into an audiobook. I really loved it and Kristin...BRAVO for making me fall in love all over again but in a new way!!! ❤️

Surprising 4 Stars

I had a hard time with this one in the beginning. I wasn't a fan of the narrator but she grows on you.
I felt the story was a little slow but wow does it pay to keep listening.
Grace what to say about this amazingly strong, willful character. She has a lot going on that she doesn't let get her down. It feels to me like it’s her big brother and her that take on the role of taking care of their younger sister.
In walks Ian this hot bad boy. He has demons he is fighting as well. Only his demons live in his house. He feels guilty for wanting out when he has younger siblings that need his help too.
Needless to say these two find each other and have this connection of heat and understanding.
Things go down to the point where Grace and Ian need to leave so they make their way to California.
Where there struggle really begins, I was very surprised at what happens and how it all comes to pass. I wanted to yell and beg and throw my headphones off at some parts. But I kept on keeping on. And wow you really don't see some of that coming.
It takes an even bigger turn then I was expecting.
Then poof it’s over and your left with, a what the heck!!! So yeah great story not so great narrator but she does grew on you.

I love this story.

I originally read this book, and loved every part of it. When I heard it was on audio, I knew I needed to listen to it.

This is the first book narrated by Kristin James for me. While some of her voices are not what I imagined, her overall performance was very good.

Marisa's book came to life in this audio version. It helped make it more realistic. I could close my eyes and picture everything. I would recommend this book to others. The story will make you laugh, cry, and be full of so many emotions. I can't wait to hear the next book.
