HOLY DRAMA!!

I loved the story line and the characters, the first 75% of the book was great (mostly) but once they find their way it takes a turn for the worst for me. I don't enjoy extreme drama and the last part of this book was nothing but drama. The jealousy doesn't work for me... If you can't trust each other then you shouldn't be together!! That part for me was immature and turned this 4.5 star book into a 3.5 star book. I will also say that the very first scene wasn't really realistic to me but they were teenagers so I can get past that and did very quickly. I loved the emotional aspect of this book, my heart broke at one part but I love when people pick up and move forward.

The narration was PERFECT... It's Erin Mallon so I expect nothing else!!

Amazing

I had read the books a couple of times, but listening brings it to a whole new level. Nothing more amazing than listening to an incredible book done with incredible narration!

Another great romance told by Erin!!

Erin Mallon has so much passion in her narrations. She is just one of the best. This was an absolute well written story and narration by Erin. Nate was flawed but passionate; Michael was the boy next door who loved Brooklyn too. She was loved differently by both men. That would be such a dream for any woman. I loved this story and highly recommend you enjoy it too.

Teenage mentality - terrible narrator

Regretfully I listen to this whole thing. The narrator over pronunciations her words. Dragging out the last letter .. “What is it about him-aaaah. Looking at me from across the room-aaaah”.. The story line was an immature romance . Found myself eye rolling. Allot. Ugh.

Be My Reason

I enjoy Samantha Christy's writing and this story was no exception. I also have enjoyed other books by this narrator. However, the narration in this book made it difficult for me to listen. I kept starting and stoping the book because of the strange tone and overly breathy quality.

Too much drama...

I just wanted it to end. Drama and overblown angst from the very beginning. Days of Our Lives drama!! And I couldn’t even skim read through it!

Good Story but...

I enjoyed this story but I think it would have been a 5 star if it had had dual narration. There was a little too much of hearing Brooklyn's thoughts all the time.
Still an okay story though.

Not Worth the Credit

I have a low tolerance for ridiculous adolescent angst and this book is filled with it. Brooklyn is mooning and hurt over a guy, Nate, that she had a crush on in high school. Now mind you she had a crush from a far and never actually went out with Nate. She accidentally ended up with him one night and found out that he liked her too. They spent their one night together talking and became each others first. It was a beginning and might have turned into something more but tragedy struck Nate's family and his dad pulled his family out of town literally overnight. Eventually, everyone in town heard the rumors about his family and what happened but instead of Brooklyn being sympathetic towards the drama and pain his family was going through she was pissed he never got in touch with her. I mean she was the ultimate self-centered teenager who had no capacity of concern for how Nate's life fell apart. Years later she's still mad at him and hasn't grown-up beyond that. Her fiancee unfortunately, who was a really good guy, got the short end of this story. I'm sorry but this was just ridiculous. Talk to one another and all of this crap wouldn't have went down the way it did. This was teenage nonsense, even though they became adults, and not worth the credit. Erin Mallon is a good narrator but she needs a male counterpart because her breathy, whiny voice grates on you if its for the entire book without a break.
