Publisher's Summary

They say going home is easy, and in all reality, it should be. Just not for me. 

The small, one-horse town that gave me my roots, that made my soul thrive, is also the place I never wanted to set foot in again. I left everything behind and never looked back. Until now. With the death of the man who raised me, I’m forced to return to Boone.

Old wounds resurface, and heartache and loss trump everything once more.

Seeing the man who shattered my world the night of our high school graduation almost brings me to my knees. Jessie, my once best friend and love of my life, ruined it all for me...for us.

I’m back in Boone...and my secret is about to rattle the tiny town.

Sweet second chance

This is a sweet second chance romance. The story of Jules and Jessi, who are divided by grief and then five years later it’s another grief that brings them together. I really enjoyed this audible.
The narration was decent by Austin Wulp and Whitton Frank

Simply Adorable

When life gives you a second chance you can either roll with it or walk away. In the case of Jules and Jessie, there is so much hurt to overcome that a future might be too much to hope for. With a beautiful story and great narrators this book should not be missed.

Heartwarming and fun

I enjoyed this story. The young daughter plays a big roll in this book. The young girl is pretty funny and she steels Jessie’s heart. The narration was great. I always enjoy the male/female narration the best.

Second chance romance

This is a heartbreaking story that you cannot help but want to feel for Jesse and Jules. I simply loved Whitney. She quickly became my favorite. The story overall did not really suck me in. It is the narration that really got me into the story. It is superb. You could hear and feel the characters through their tones. Definitely a story recommended for one who loves second chances mixed with some funny moments.

Great second chance story

I like how both Austin and Whitton played the different characters although I did think that the female narrator was better at playing a male character compared to the male narrator playing a female character!

In terms of the story, it was a well done second chance romance. The couple were best friends and young lovers. However, Jesse leaves to go to the major leagues leaving Jules even though she was pregnant. It was a pretty bad situation and they didn’t talk for years. I was not a fan of Jesse in the beginning and thought it would be difficult to respect him.

When Jules came back for her grandfather’s funeral, she sees Jesse again, who is home because of an injury. While they get together rather quickly given how poorly he treated her, it was heart warming how he treated his daughter. And the author did a great job showing how truly regretful he was for being such a jerk when he was younger. So it was believable, especially with a child in play (Whit is so adorable)

A bit of angst but overall, a fast and easy listen. I received a free copy from Audiobook Obsession for an unbiased review. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Yesterday Is Gone

TITLE: Yesterday Is Gone
BY: HJ Bellus
NARRATED BY: Austin Wulp, Whitton Frank
DISCLAIMER: This book was given to me free in return for my honest review.

BRIEF SUMMARY
When tragedy strikes Jules finds herself back in her hometown, a place she’s been avoiding for 5 years. Soon Jules is face to face with Jessie her high school sweetheart and old feeling resurface especially with little Whit around.

ABOUT THE NARRATOR
Austin Wulp and Whitton Frank did a fantastic job making this story come to life. I especially enjoyed listening to Whitton and look forward to finding to more of her books. Personally, I think that Austin did a great job playing Jessie but that his little girl voice was a bit annoying. However, I understand how hard it would be for a male to produce a little girls voice.

THE BOOK
This was a very typical second chance love story, but I couldn’t help but loving it. There is just something about books with single parents who find love (in this case with the biological father) that interest me. It’s just way to cute!!

OVERALL
This book was great! I definitely recommend it to anyone who likes second chance romance novels.

The second Chance he almost missed

This second chance romance had me disliking the Hero and hoping our heroine would find someone else, who's rash petions didn't had me shaking my head at them, but author HJ Bellus brought a tutu wearing star who helped this listener give said almost bad guy a chance.

While fast in conflict solution resolution there where other bumps this couple faces and yet it is a dancing star that bring this story to its HEA.

I have one issue with this book, close to the end there's an insinuations over keeping someone, however the epilogue didn't bring up this character so I personally feel left wondering, I now have to go find all the words by this author and see if I can catch a clue.

Funny and sweet second chance romance

HJ Bellus does it again with a truly lovely and sweet second chance romance between Jesse and Jules. This was a fairly short listen but HJ Bellus seems to fit in an awful lot of story and as usual her characters are fully rounded and instantly likeable. I loved all the side characters in this one as well and in particular little Whit was adorable with great dialogue for a child character! I liked the narration overall but felt the male narration was a bit formal and robotic in places. The more I read of HJ Bellus’s work the more I find I love everything she’s written! Absolutely worth a listen to if you like a short, sweet young lovers second time around story. #AudiobookObsession

Small Town second chance romance

I really enjoyed this story. I felt that the book was well written and the narrators did a good job as well. I felt like I could connect to these characters and what they were going through. I'm from a small town and the author hit it just right with the small town vibes. Really enjoyed book one and will hopefully get to listen to book 2 soon.

2nd chances are worth it.

A great story story of rekindling your first love.
Jessie and Jules were HS Sweethearts. They had all these plans until a pregnancy. Jessie basically was a jerk about it and left for College. Jules kept the baby and moved to Cali. Jules returned after 5 years due to her dad's death.
Jessie finds out he has a daughter after 5 years. The story takes us on a journey of love, forgiveness and healing.
The narrators were both new to me. I thought they did a great job.

Yesterday is Gone

I loved this second chance love story. I enjoyed the dual point of view. Jules and Jessie were great but the real star of this book was 5 year old Whit. There was angst as well as sweet, funny and sad moments. It's well worth a listen especially if you love stories with kids in it.

Austin & Whitton did a great job narrating this story and bringing these characters to life.

Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession

Second chance romance. A little drama, sadness, pettiness, but a lot of fun with a small town flair.
Narration by Whitton Frank was well done, narration by Austin Wulp was stuffy, I’m sure he would be excellent in a different story just not this one.

Young Love

Jessie and Jules were high school sweethearts. They had plans for their futures and it was off to college then their forever. When life threw a wrench into their plans Jessie crushed Jules so she did the only thing she could and left town. Years later they are brought back together and what they had before still simmers there.

Austin Wulp and Whitton Frank did a great job narrating this emotional story. They brought their A game and made me feel. I loved listening to them both.

Yesterday is Gone

This was such a great read/listen. I am a sucker for small town romances and even more so for HJ Bellus books. As always a solid and a bit emotional storyline leading to a wonderful HEA . The performance by Austin Wulp and Whitton Frank was very well done and helped the story along that much more.

This was a very sweet listen!

I love HJ Bellus’s writing! Her stories are always real and heartwarming. This story of Jules, Jessie and Whit is no exception to her good work.

Jules comes back to town for her grandfathers funeral. She moved away as soon as she graduates high school. Right after her then boyfriend Jesse told her to “take care of it” when she told him she was pregnant. He had a football scholarship and it went to his head. I have to admit that I did NOT like Jesse at the beginning of this story!

When she comes back, he sees her and knows he never stopped loving her. He regretted what he said the minute he got on the plane to go to college and she wasn’t with him. Her grandparents wouldn’t help him find her. He came back to their home town and hoped she’d return.

So what happens when two people who loves each other all through high school, separates by hurt, see each other again after so long. And how does a father get to know a daughter he has never seen? This story will tell you a story of how Jessie and Jules handle it! It’s well worth a listen.

Austin Will and Whittington Frank do a good job with the narration.

Love Second Chance Romance

Ohh fell in love with Whit, such a wonderful little thing. This was a great, easy going book for me. A wonderful listen and only my second audiobook from HJ Bellus. I really love her stories, the characters just fall into place for me. Jules and Jessie have a never ending love affair that started when they were just youngsters together, and we see them trying to get back together again in this book. I’m a sucker for stories where true love prevails and hearts come back to each other and bloom.
HJ gives us such heart warming stories and this one does give you an HEA.

Really enjoyed this book from the amazing HJ. Hope to hear more of Jules and Jessie’s friends and their stories too.

Good narration, better a second time around.
