Publisher's Summary

Running away from his feelings is the one race he'll never win....

A star athlete and Olympic prospect, Kal Carter is bound for greatness. Everyone says it, only he's not sure he entirely believes it. Because he's lost something he can't replace, and most days he feels like he's holding up the sky; and doing it all on his own.

To maintain focus, he never lets anyone close except in the most superficial ways, and he's become very good at it. Until a long, cold week when the solitary girl next door who never speaks, smiles, or makes eye contact barges into his life and seems poised to upend the whole doggone thing.

Contains mature themes.

Narrators ruined it!

Nia Forrester is great writer. However, the narrators killed an amazing book. I suggest you read the book first before you listen to the audiobook because this is a good storyline.

Great Story, Excellent Performance!

Kal and Ash are college students, seniors. They are neighbors. Very different, but both on the same path but different.

Honestly, I wasn’t going to read this until I found this audiobook. There are few AA audiobooks, with authors like Nia. My favorite. I loved the characters despite their age. Also, I will admit I was shocked I liked this book because of their age.

Kal is popular and attractive, a future Olympian. Ash is shy and reserved, but she notices everything it appears. Just absorbs whats around her and moves in her quiet peaceful way. She has few friends and after an unfortunate incident Kal and Ash connect.

They find their place in each other’s lives. Kal doesn’t want a girlfriend but finds one he wasn’t looking for. Ash realizes sooner that she has fallen for him. She takes a step back because of a past incident with a lover. However, Kal brings her back in with his need to be around her.

Ash attempts to start something new, but Kal is there. Discovering feelings he didn’t know he had for Ash.

Her past is addressed, but I needed more redemption for her, but nevertheless it was cool. She and Kal decide they are right for each other and the book ends there.

PROS

It’s an audiobook too!
Excellent writing.
Great characters.
Great supplemental characters.
Love story develops.
Page turner.
The race dynamics with her old lover was interesting, especially with his occupation. He was liberal, but not really. Nia nailed that dynamic!
Kal’s father was a great character. A man. Loved him.

CONS

I wanted a resolution with Bennett.
Age of characters. They’re seniors in college
A lot of...interrupting conversations. At times seeing the periods interrupting the words of the characters was cool, but I noticed it was often. Distracted me, despite this being such a great story.

Male Narrator Sucks!!!

This is a prime example of how a boring narrator can turn a good story into a struggle-story. The female narrator was good, but the male narrator...bruh! He was beyond slow & boring, and damn near had me falling asleep! Honestly, it felt like I was listening to one of those meditation audio books. My great-great-grandfather could put this man to shame! The story itself is pretty good though, as long as you download the Kindle version and read it yourself.
