This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

Life can change in the blink of an eye. And every choice can unravel more of the truth.

One split second decision after a lifetime of lies has created a world so confusing, happily ever after isn't guaranteed. Not even when the stars align and the pieces fit perfectly into the puzzle.

This time, I'll have to fight for love with a vice clamping my heart and a gaping hole swallowing my soul. Absence won't make the heart grow fonder.

Lies and deceit.
Broken promises and disappointment.
I know them all too well.
So far, the pain has won. But the pain doesn't have to be permanent.

H*ly Sh!t!!!!!!!

I have no words after finishing this book. I'm posting this review weeks after finishing and I still cannot wrap my mind around everything that happened. It is definitely going on my "to re-read a million times" list! Get ready to go on a roller coaster ride of emotions!

The narration was fantastic! Sarah did a great job with all of the emotions in this book!

unique story

I personally loved this book. I thought it was quite unique in it's plot. I thought the characters were great. Some you loved, some you hated but either way, they made you feel. I was riveted and could not put this book down. The 2nd half of this book more so left my emotions in a tailspin. I sent more than a few rage-y messages as i was reading just trying to process my feelings and the story. That is the sign of a great book to me. I would LOVE to see this expanded on to see a 2nd book. I normally write reviews right away however this one took me a while to process my thoughts. What an ending!

Narration: Sarah did a fantastic job of narration. The narration itself was clear and a pleasure to listen to. The editing was clean and well done. I had zero complaints.

If you stay I’ll make you mine

Meghan Campbell thought she had it all, in the beginning the man of her dreams, a nice home, a lovely daughter. Till it wasn’t, and decides to end it, but then she finds her whole life is a charade and her daughters life was almost cut short by Connor the father who was supposed to protect her.
Dr. Garrett Kristoff, has had a thing for Meghan since childhood, but Connor stole her love before he even had a chance, now he gets his second chance and doesn’t plan to let go.
He even started a journal for her with little sentimental thoughts:
“If you stay you won’t regret, if you stay I’ll make you mine”
“Relax and breathe, your right where you belong”
“Stay a While”
Gia Riley has concocted a well written story of lies, deception, and a second chance at love.
Narrator Sarah Puckett did an excellent job, how she held it together is beyond me.
Thank you both and Audiobook Addition for gifting me this audible book for a fair and honest review.

BORING

it took all I had to get threw this entire book. it was so slow and Boeing and never picked up. the only interesting part was the end, which kinda made you think there should be a part 2, but there isn't, and I probably couldn't handle the boredom even if there was. I should return. definitely not worth a credit or $$

A great book


I love the book.
Poor Megan she had to go through so much in a very short period and she had to remain strong for Laine, I was glad she had Gareth and that he didn't give up on her.
Gareth was really amazing from the beginning and I loveee him

Also the plot twist that I won't spoil was so unexpected and I have mixed feelings about it.

The narrattion by Sarah Puckett was fenomenal she made a great job. I must say I adored her narrattion of Laine's parts it was adorable.

surprising till the very end

so, very emotional book that surprises you all through the book until the very last chapter of the book. it is very good written and the flow of the book is just the right one. i was happy, sad, angry, surprised, confused and at the very end happy but at the same time sad for all the main charachters.

garret is so sweek in love with meghan for half of his life and how he becomes whole once he finally gets the chance to be with love of his life. the torment of meghan becouse her split love between an illusion and possible forever. and little girl who is so perceptive to all that it breaka your heart thinking what she had to go thorugh.

a love story with a sad note.

Found a new author I love

This book is such a great heart felt story. This story captivated me right from the start. I found myself listening while cooking dinner, washing laundry, riding in the car. Any opportunity I could listen, I did. I love the narration, Sarah Puckett makes the story come to life.
Thanks Gia for writing such a great book!

Excellent Story!

This story had me sucked in from the very beginning. The chemistry between Megan and Garrett was super hot and exciting. The love and compassion Garrett showed Laney was absolutely adorable. I loved this book and the narration was spot on!

Paging Dr. Garrett!

You can’t feel too badly about all of the bad things that happen to Megan at the beginning of this book because she’s lucky enough to reconnect with sexy Dr Garrett Christophe!!
Great narration— it would have been better with a dual narration to have a male voice for Garret’s chapters but Sarah Puckett did an awesome job with double duty!
