I purchased this audiobook.
This was the first audio narration I have heard from Lacy Laurel. She did a good job changing up the different voices from women to men. The females voices were a bit similar but through the conversation you could tell who was who.
This is a short novella I downloaded after finishing a super duper long…16 hour…..audio story. I needed just a quick in and out love story. This is a best friends to lovers story/2nd Chance Romance Story.
Beth and Bryce were besties in college who were both feeling the other but never crossed that line. When Bryce was leaving for Harvard there was some jealousy issues that got in the way of their possible “love connection” and they parted ways. Bryce was never really sure what happened to Beth and Beth was all in her feelings. Now I admit I have a few questions about the story. They are friends so her being angry that he was hooking up with someone was kinda a stretch for me. But Bryce tells the “hook up” two different ways so I was confused. First he says the girl asked for help and he went to her room. She came on to him and he declines…then he says they were making out and we went to have sex but sees Beth’s picture and declines said offer. So I think that would have been caught with beta readers and ARC readers to be better flushed out.
All in all the story was them finding each other again and admitting how they felt about each other in the past and figuring out what to do with the time they have now. I think this was a good story and enjoyable read. It could have been flushed out a bit more but I did enjoy listening when I was getting ready and driving to work.
