It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.

Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete had been left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.

Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.

Sometimes first loves are the truest.

I purchased the audio book.

This is a second chance kind a sort of with a bit of forbidden love story. You see Adele had a best friend, Pete, when she was younger. Even though he was 15 years older than her she had a huge crush on him. When she turned 18 she decided to let him know how she felt. Well let’s just say it didn’t go as she planned quite the opposite actually. With a broken heart she decided to leave town.

Now she has to return home for her dads wedding and face Pete. What a big surprise when she finds out she is staying with Pete for the week. Pete’s head is all over the place does he want her to stay see where things go or is he scared of his feelings.

I wasn’t sure I would like Adele but to see her as a kid in the flash back and to see her as an adult was a great transformation. I loved her spunk, sass, and tell it like it is. She put Pete in his place a few times. Pete and Adele relationship was passionate at times and then Pete would put on the breaks. Will these two be able to make it work or will Adele give up and leave again?

I enjoyed listening to this story. Andi Arndt did a good job with the narration and the different voices of each character. Andi was able to keep me in the story and I did not want to pause it.
