Publisher's Summary

“They say nice guys always finish last. I say the only place that should apply is in the bedroom - it’s just good manners, after all.” (Brett MacKinnon, nice guy and frequent resident of the friend zone)

LIV: There are really only three things I need in life: sex, baseball, and winning. My hot boyfriend and season tickets take care of the first two, while I always do my best to cover the last. So developing an unexpected crush on a new friend is more than a little inconvenient. I don’t have anything but friendship to offer Brett, but with the way he looks at me, he has me wishing I did.

BRETT: I’ve been put in the friend zone so often, they’ve got a sandwich named after me. You’d think I’d be used to it by now. But when it comes to the delectable Liv, I’m determined to ditch the friend zone and show her I’m boyfriend material. Too bad the position’s already been filled by a ball-playing caveman who could flatten me with his pinky.

What will it take to show Liv that nice guys can be more than just friends, and that love is the one game truly worth winning?

Sports Rom-com

Loved this book! I think the narrators were great! This audiobook had me laughing at times. And in deep thought at others. I almost thought it was going to become a mystery of sorts. Liv is an amazing character. She has the mouth to keep her short stature in trouble. And Brett is HOT! I like that this book included the characters from the previous books in the series. I listened to The nerd next door before any of Sylvie Stewart’s books.
I was amazingly surprised that it fit in with this story too! Great job Sylvie!!!!

Blew me away!

“The Way You Are” blew me away. Since Brett is Gavin’s best friend, there were glimpses of him in previous books but we never really got to know him. Just putting together what we learned about Brett in the other books, you would have thought that he was a player and not very deep. So very glad that Sylvie decided to treat us to Brett and Olivia’s story so we could learn more about Brett. These two started as friends and over the course of the book grew into so much more. Brett is such a wonderful guy. It was so sweet to see him put his growing attraction on the back burner so he could be the friend Liv needed. Watching Liv work through her issues so she could get to a place where she could experience intimacy was truly a fantastic journey. I can’t wait to see who’s next.....Ari?

Liv stressed me out at times and irritated me, but Brett was awesome. I loved them together after they got through all the hurdles.

Just what I was waiting for!

I love the Carolina Connections series and I had been itching for Brett and Olivia's story to make it to Audible. It's my first listen of 2020 and it was just what I was waiting for! For every person who has ever been friend-zoned, this story is the happy ending you're looking for. The sass, smarts, and baseball have me itching for spring and wishing I could catch a game with Sylvie's crew. The narrators did a fantastic job bringing the characters and story to life for an enjoyable listening experience.

Fun story!

This series is just a lot of fun. This story is about Brett and Liv. Brett we have met before and Liv is new to this group, but brings so much fun to the group! I love this series because they are fun stories with happily ever afters and the craziness of getting there. Liv and Brett's story is a friends to lovers story that had me cheering for Brett from early on. What a guy! Good read in a good series.

The narrators did a great job of bringing this story to life. They added so much to the story.

Quirky and Fun

So glad Brett got his story. He's such a fun character and Liv is the perfect match for him. This story is so fun and Sylvie Stewart's humor is wonderfully quirky. One of my new favorites!

Fabulous RomCom & Narration🎧 Captivating & Fun!

I just loved book, it is a great friends to lovers romantic comedy. It is well written with perfect balance of romance and humor. The storylines are interesting and original, they captivated me from start to end. The characters are likable and easy to relate to. I adored the two leads, Brett and Liv, both are full of personality and hilarious at times. Liv catches Brett’s attention at a baseball game, he is instantly attracted to her but she has a boyfriend, but he takes what he could get from her even if it is only friends. I loved the chemistry between these two, also loved how it all plays out for them. There is never a dull moment in this book, it is well plotted with drama, a touch of angst, some great humor, some heartfelt moments and hot ones too. Sylvie Stewart, thank you for another enjoyable story in this awesome series, I am looking forward to the next one, Ari’s story!

Amanda Stripling and David Black are talented narrators and voice artists. They bring these characters to life giving each their own voice and personality, as well as heart and attitude. They did a great job portraying each character and projecting their emotions into their performance. They also captured and landed the humor with perfection. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Sweet and quirky

Throughout the series, Brett was one of my favorites. Liv is the perfect partner for Brett. This story is your HEA with sass and quirky all rolled into one.
