Description

Sutton Spencer's ideas for her life were fairly simple: finish graduate school and fall in love. It would be a lot simpler if she could pinpoint exactly what she should do when she graduates in less than a year. Oh, and if she could figure out how to talk to a woman without feeling like a total mess, that would be great, too.

Charlotte Thompson is very much the opposite. She's always had clear steps outlining her path to success with no time or inclination for romance. Her burgeoning career in politics means everything to her, and she's not willing to compromise it for something as insignificant as love. Fleeting, casual, and discreet worked perfectly fine.

When they meet through a dating app, it's immediately clear that they aren't suited for anything more than friendship. Right?

Contains mature themes.

Amazing story

After reading the one review about all the text messages being in the book I was a tad worried I might not like this story, but I decided to give it a go and I’m seriously glad I did.
I didn’t find the text messages distracting at all, and the story was great! I’ll definitely be looking for others by this author.
As always, Lori Prince hits it out of the park with her phenomenal narration.

Thank you audiobook gods

This book has had a special place in my heart since the first time I read it months ago. From the first read I fell in love with gorgeous, driven, trailblazing Charlotte, who swears she’s impervious to love; and sweet, adorably awkward Sutton, who knocks down all Charlotte’s walls just by existing in the world as a “beautiful, bright ray of redheaded sunshine,” as Regan calls her. I’ve probably read their story 3 or 4 times by now. It’s hot, sweet, poignant and at times surprisingly tear-jerking. All-around entertaining. So when I saw that an audio version had been released with LORI PRINCE, one of my all-time favorite narrators voicing it, I basically swooned with excitement! They could NOT have found a better narrator to bring out all the tones of this book, from the sexy to the playful to the emotional and inspiring. This was a joy to listen to. Thank you, audio gods, for pairing wonderful writers with wonderful narrators.

One little thing of note to my fellow Americans: politics and politicians feature largely in this story, and it’s a bit of unfortunate timing for this release considering the current dumpster fire of a political climate in our country right now. I am referring to the juxtaposition of the world Cass builds here to that of our distinctly charged reality. From the Obama erasure (in favor of Charlotte’s fictional grandmother, the “first [white] female president of the US”) to the Trump erasure (not nearly as bad a thing IMO, but still distractingly noticeable), to the fact that the biggest issue being faced in the “Those Who Wait” political/social landscape is the continued homophobia among politicians and their constituents (rather than things like BLM movements and - oh I don’t know - A PANDEMIC) this book feels like a very out-of-touch representation of the time and place it’s meant to portray in the US. It’s enough to pull you out of the story just a little at times, or at least that is true for me. So maybe just be aware of that (if you’re like me and potentially distracted by that kind of thing) and go with it. You will not regret it. :)

10/10 recommend! Lori Prince is a gift!

Some of my favorites, love, politics and good friends..

I’ve actually read this book a few times now and the follow up book,I enjoyed Sutton and Charlotte love story. Lori Prince doing the audio is a perfect match. Honestly when I saw the length of the audio, I thought Forever and A Day was going to be included. Even though that’s not the case, just makes me look forward to another audio coming in the near future.

Swooon!

What a romantic, slow burn audio book!

Haley Cass is going to be huge in the lesfic genre! I absolutely loved this!

Lori Prince was once again amazing! She has great comical timing and can tell the heck out of a story!

Excellent

i loved this book, it was a little to long for my patience, but it was good, and I am glad Charlotte was not 100% successful, because we are bound to fail from time to time and it is human, connected to reality, and it allows the writer to create a sequel.

Friends to lovers?!

I was hesitant to listen because it was so long. But, I am so glad I made the purchase. This is by far my favorite book. Sutton is awkward and nervous, and Charlotte is confident. The perfect friends to lovers story line, that actually made me cry in parts. Please follow up on their story line.

Could not love this book more!

This is my new favorite book! Finished then immediately started it again.
I love this author so much and since Lori Prince could read me the phone book and make me happy, I can't love it more.

Way to long!

This book was way to long and it honestly didn’t need to be. The narrator did a good job.

It took a bit to get used to the narrator but once I did, I couldn't stop listening!

Tedious but okay

I haven’t finished yet 6 hours left) but I figured I’d write to perhaps warn people? This book is long yes but my biggest issue is the sheer amount of internal dialogue the main characters have. The author describes what the POV character is saying 85% of the time. It grades on you after a while. I almost quit this book when one of the characters has a lengthy discussion with herself about underwear. Should she wear sexy ones, what does it mean if she does, what the other character might think etc etc.

I love the premise of this book, I enjoy politics, but if it’s not your thing definitely skip this one.

Also, no one has mentioned in their reviews yet about the beginning of the book. It starts with a lot of messaging back and forth on a dating app. Not a biggie, but every single message prefaces with NAME, TIMES STAMP and then the message. Every single one. This goes on for a while and I almost quit. It doesn’t however go on as long as I was expecting. Thankfully.

Lori Prince is one of my faves but her voice comes across as whiny a lot of the time, especially when the person talking is Reagan.

Sutton’s character sounds like a teenager a lot of the time and that detracts from my enjoyment.

This book is a YA novel in my opinion. The characters are older than that but their actions are young like at times, especially Sutton.

It’s not a terrible book, I’d say if you have some time to kill it’s for you. If you’re a bit older and picky with lesfic, I’d say pass this one.
