Publisher's Summary

If there's one thing that Bridgette Reynolds has learned recently, it's that the perfect shoes, the perfect hair, and the perfect dress do not make for the perfect proposal. In fact, sometimes they make for the not-so-perfect breakup. Now, Bridgette must do everything in her power to win Adam back. She knows they are meant to be. And nothing will stand in her way - not her friends, not her grandmother, not even the fact that Adam is now engaged to Serene after a whirlwind romance.

Focused on her plan to win Adam back, Bridgette isn't expecting Ian - her college best friend, her love, her big regret - to come back into her life. They sink back into their comfortable friendship as if no time has passed at all, making Bridgette start to question her feelings for Adam. But Ian has a few secrets of his own...secrets that could shatter their friendship once and for all. Bridgette has to make some major decisions - should she speak now? Or forever hold her peace?

Boy Trouble.

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

Absolutely. This is a light, fun and entertaining story with all sorts of boy drama. It has multiple plot twists and is genuinely surprising in many places without taking itself too seriously. This story is sure to lighten up your winter funk.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that this story reminded me of late nights talking over boy troubles with my sisters. First Bridgett is obsessed with Adam. Then she is consumed with Ian while simultaneously trying to figure out what to do about Justin. It has a great gossip session feel.

What does Lara Asmundson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She has a light, animated voice that makes the story fun. She brings a very girly feel to the narration.

If you could take any character from Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would take Carla (Bridgette's ex-future mother-in-law) out to lunch because she is incredibly entertaining and has a fabulous accent.

Any additional comments?

This book is relatively clean. No foul language or graphic sex scenes. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Fun and Flirty

Any additional comments?

Bridget is a wanted woman! Yet, it starts out with her having to chase the man she wants. What ensues is a fun ride of learning to let love find you and realizing maybe it's been there all along.

Great Book!

Any additional comments?

This is great fun book written by Becky Monson and narrated by Lara Asmundson. This book can be listened to in one sitting if you have the time, once I started listening to it I didn’t want to put it down until the end. Bridgette Reynolds is ready for her perfect proposal, what she wasn’t ready for was her boyfriend breaking up with her to date someone else. She is determined to not let anything or anyone stand in her way to get Adam back. That is until she runs into the one she let get away in college.

The narrator Lara Asmundson. She did a great job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

If you are looking for a great book with great characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

Weddings Times Two

If you could sum up Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace in three words, what would they be?

Riveting, Funny, Blonde

What other book might you compare Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace to and why?

I can't think of a book to compare it to; however, the beginning reminds me so much of the movie, "Legally Blonde". The heroine going to meet her boyfriend, expecting him to propose. Very funny!

Which scene was your favorite?

When Bridgette shows up to stop Adam's wedding and all hell breaks loose. I could not stop laughing!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Bridgette FINALLY tells Ian that she loves him. I was in tears.

Any additional comments?

This is a wonderfully funny book! The narrator is wonderful and she does the voices very well.

This book should come with an age limit! 15 and under!

Terrible writing... Far to much explaining what the lead character was wearing. Very whiny self involved characters and weak story line. It started off with much potential and ended up being predictable. 14 year olds might enjoy it.

Enjoyable!

Loved the story. I was interested from the start and could not wait to finish it!! Great reader, however, a few characters sounded like Fran Drescher, and that was slightly annoying...otherwise, highly recommend!!

Absolute drivel

I found everything about this audiobook annoying, from the predictable plotline to the irritating narrator who seemed to want to make the main character sound as ditzy and unintelligent as possible. No depth to the characters whatsoever.
