Teenage high school romance loaded with tension

Narration: The narration of this book is AMAZING. Both Jennifer O'Donnell and Sebastian Fields do a wonderful job at bringing H.M Ward's story and characters to life. They don't just narrate the story, they also act out the characters' emotions. Sebastian's voice is deep and sexy whereas Jennifer's voice is friendly and sweet. Towards the end of the book, they had me shivering and crying.

Story: "The Secret Life of Trystan Scott" is a sweet love story between 2 teenagers who are really good friends but who also have secret crushes on each other. Trystan is hiding the fact that he uploaded a song that has gone viral on YouTube. He has the potential of becoming a famous rock star but he doesn't want to attract any attention to himself. As the story develops, you realize that they both have troubled lives at home and they rely on each other for support. A story about teenage love, tough decisions, parental abuse, parental neglect and bullying. The characters are smart, strong and sarcastic (just the way I like 'em). For H.M. Ward's Ferro Family fans, this would be good audiobook to listen to if you want a better insight into Trystan & Mari's characters (they make occasional appearances). A New Adult Romance about Trystan and Mari in their young adult lives is in the works.

Parental advisory: There is mention of sexual desires and temptation, occasional course language, occasional violence.

This story alternately from Trystan and Mari's point of view.

Really Great YA

I think the best fictional work in literature is being written in the YA genre. This is a perfect example. The story is captivating if not realistic. The main characters are very likable and have a sweet storyline. This is obviously not a steamy romance novel and I thought it was really nice to have a female character who wanted to save her virginity for her husband and the male character to not only support her, but is also inexperienced rather than jaded. I am well past YA in years but I will continue to delve into this genre. Well done Ms. Ward.

Good...for teenagers...

I thought this was a pretty good YA story. It had a lot of interesting elements and good characters. I feel like the book tries to send a positive message to teenagers by giving life advice so that was cool. However, I actually found it to be quite juvenile...and this is coming from someone who likes a good YA novel. Now even with that being said, I think this is a pretty decent read for someone 21 & under. I would recommend it then.

Lacking imagination

This story was so predictable I knew the next scene well in advance. Narrators did an excellent job with what they had to work with.

Good it was a bundle or wouldn't have finished!

It was slow, and I'm glad it was only 1 credit for all 5 books or I would have never continued the series!

Not likely

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

A very unlikely story geared at encouraging childish misperceptions of growing up. The acting was okay but the story line with both predictable and immature.

Sweet Young Adult Story

What made the experience of listening to The Secret Life of Trystan Scott the most enjoyable?

Since the way of the book is written in the two perspectives of the main characters I constantly forgot that thinking things and saying them is and can be a massive step and sometimes people possibly needing two filters before their brain and mouth to say something even remotely nice seem like a great thing that or things just take time.

What did you like best about this story?

Clouded judgement can really destroy a person and the story explained it but more the story pushed the importance of having trust that someone can be a better person really shines throughout it as well

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I honestly would hate to give spoilers so short and sweet the explanation at the dinner of food and toilet paper decorative events on Bree's car legitimately made me laugh like a child

Any additional comments?

great read~!
