Publisher's Summary

We were never supposed to fall in love. We did it anyway.

New York Times best-selling author S.L. Scott crafts her signature heartfelt style into an epic and emotional second-chance stand-alone romance.

I have three goals: graduate from an Ivy League university, get into medical school, and follow in my father's well-established footsteps. Everything was going exactly as planned until the local bad boy was delivered to my doorstep. Literally.

From the moment we meet, my old life becomes unrecognizable, but I have no regrets. I'm utterly captivated by him. His smirk. His heart. His sharp wit. He pushes me to live, to be wild, to pursue the dream I've always hidden inside.

To the rest of the world, we make no sense.

Me, the girl from the gilded New England coast.

Joshua, from the small city of New Haven.

To us, we're destiny.

Together, we had it all. Desperately, madly in love.

Until we didn't.

One tragic night changed everything.

Hot and Heartfelt

A full story from start to finish. Not predictable at any point and definitely tugs at the heart strings when the various conflicts come into play. The sex scenes have a person getting completely aroused with the ideas and if you are so lucky to have found that 'one', be with them again.
Narrative is lacking at the beginning until you get into the story and it has you enveloped. Great listen!

Well worth the listen

this was a very good story and was made even better with two of my favorite narrators who always make me love the books they perform in. There were a few lose ends which could have been closed to make it more finished, but overall I would recommend this book. The love scenes were tastefully done and were minimal in this novel compared to others

I’m so confused🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Going to start by saying the narration was PERFECTION Andi & Sebastian are amazing!!

Now, on the book I love S.L. Scott books. With that being said,this book was so long you could skep chapters & not miss a thing (I didn’t). So many unanswered questions on her father, the book was over 12hrs it feels so incomplete.... IM SO FRUSTRATED!!!

Beautiful and Heartfelt

I absolutely loved Josh and Chloe's story. Soulmates with nothing but obstacles in front of them, they prove love can conquer all. Narration was perfect.

This was a great love story. Everytime I listen to andiobook with Andi Arndt narrating, I fall in love. It was funny, sweet and I love happy endings. I really wish that there was a part 2 to this one.

overall love

I enjoyed this book. I enjoy the authors writing. it pulls you in. I dont like leaving reviews with specific details bc its ruined it for other people just looking to know if it's a good book. it got a little less enticing towards the middle but them BOOM pulled me back in till I finished it and I enjoyed it all overall. I would recommend giving it a chance.

real life

SLScott once again delivers moving realistic characters and story line.What made the story even better is the performances from Andi Arnet and Sabastian York.If Mr York narrates a book I buy it. Mr. York picks his scripts well.

Gets better

Almost returned this after 6 chapters. It was missing a story line. Skipped to Chapter 20. Glad I did. Found the story line, lots of twists and turns. A little too much descriptive sex but overall worth reading

once from two different lives

What an enjoyable audiobook!!! Author S.L. Scott did amazing!!!!

The storyline was well flowing, with some of everything! Romance, family drama, almost a "forbidden romance" type trope,, humor, and plants. LOL... and then there's these "can't narrate anything poorly" narrators... Sebastian York and Andi Arndt! Fantastic!

This book is Captivating!

Thank you, to S.I Scott for this love story, that I couldn't put down! She is
one of my favorite Authors. Sebastian York could make you swoon
reading the phone book. Sebastian and Andi are an excellent team.I

Chloe and Joshua went through heartache, rejection, separation
due to betrayal. But their love, overcame it all!
The ending prologue is a spectacular way to end, we all
Love 💘 suprises!!
