Publisher's Summary

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.

Career or Love?

It was slow at first (at least for me) but then it got exciting and funny. I loved both characters Sutton and Charlotte. Even the other characters are lovable and funny. ❤️
I wish there's book 2.
Narrator Lori Prince.. one of my favorite, as always did an awesome job!

Fantastic book! You have to get this!

This was one of the most enjoyable audiobooks I have ever listened to. Not only was the story exceptionally well written, it flowed effortlessly and naturally and didn’t seem forcefully put together like some authors force a story together, but the narrator was so on-point! She brought the characters to life and was absolutely fantastic while doing it. Now that I have listened to the story, I am going to buy the kindle edition to read it and the paperback because this author deserves it.

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!

Not for me

Too much late adolescent young adult angst for me personally. This book has good writing and an excellent narrator but the story was just not for me. Perhaps I have reached an age where I am not able to connect with these characters, or perhaps the story seemed so unrealistic to not draw me in. The entanglements around a dating app parents and good friends just seemed over the top. If you want a good listen with a lot of sexual identity angst, fear of being publicly outed, and plots associated with political families then I highly recommend this book. The characters are likable and there is engaging dialogue. I wanted to like this book. I would try another book by this author. It is not that I think this is a bad book; it simply wasn’t for me and I never got into it.

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.

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.

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.

Just Buy It!

Ok y'all, so love me a good lesbian romance, and have over 75 of them in my audible library. When looking for my next listen I was as hesitant as others when I saw the length of this one. I read over the reviews though and saw so many say it's the best, a favorite, a top pick for them. So, naturally I ignored them and got When You Least Expect It first to make sure I would like this author (as I already know Lori is my jam). Cass didn't disappoint and as soon as I finished that book I got this one.

Ladies, the reviews were right. Yes this book is long, and yes it's now a favorite if not THE favorite of my collection. I felt like I was watching a series or movie...so much character development, supporting roles, and background. It keeps you so engaged. I wouldn't consider myself super emotional, but I found myself reacting to this story...laughing while jogging in the park, crying while listening in bed (making my poor wife think something was wrong). Sutton is so lovable and sweet and I've known people like her... adorably clueless. Charlotte I connected more with as she's more reflective of my personality....and them together is perfect.

Cass, you've got it all going for you. If these first few books are any indication of what's to come in the future, you've got nothing but success headed your way. Congrats.... I look forward to your next read.

Love it!

Now I want to know more about what happens with Sutton and Charlotte, but beautiful story and I adore how you told the characters stories and POV.
