Summary

They were the Three Amigos: Duncan Holloway, Imogen Swan, and Corey Szabo. Two young boys with difficult lives at home banding together with a cool girl who didn’t mind mucking through the mud on their hikes.

They grew up to be Duncan Holloway, activist, CEO, and face of the popular River Rain outdoor stores, Imogen Swan, award-winning actress and America’s sweetheart, and Corey Szabo, ruthless tech billionaire.

Rich and very famous, they would learn the devastating knowledge of how the selfish acts of one would affect all their lives.

And the lives of those they loved.

Start the River Rain series with After the Climb, the story of Duncan and Imogen navigating their way back to each other, decades after a fierce betrayal.

And introduce yourself to their families, who will have their stories told when River Rain continues.

Wow

The book was something else. Based on what others have said in their reviews, I think that I must be the only one who felt sorry for Corey. What he did was awful but when looking at his past and realising that he really did love Duncan and Imogen, he was so unhappy and the lengths he went to in order to right the wrongs show the amount of mental anguish he had experienced all those years. It was an interesting book that I completed in one go.

What a great storyline. With a past that shouldn’t have been this book is all about making the most of a bad situation. A brilliant performance.

Amazing book

What an amazing story I loved the characters but I hated Corey. At the same time I felt so sorry for his upbringing

Droll

So sorry as I have this author.
The story keeps repeating the same story. Duncan & Jen used to go out - yes and, come on already. I can’t imagine 2o hrs of this.
I never give up on books!
And the slow drill voices of both main narrators is just too much.
Good luck if you have more patience and the voices don’t hit the same cord for you.

Fantastic listen

Loved this story right from the very start. First time book by Kristen Ashley and I’ll definitely be buying more, want to hear more in this series, love the characters. Don’t recognise any of the narrators’ names either, they were all great.
Have just listened to this book again, it was so good that I got the series and binged them all. I was introduced to this author by this book, now got 10 in my library and lots more on my wish list. Wish I could give another 5 stars.

Teenage drivel!

Someone please pass me a sickbag! How does this stuff get published?! A totally sickly unrealistic 'romance' whose two main characters are filled with false modesty and what the author seems to think looks like caution. Every other character manoeuvring behind them like the world's worst cheerleaders.

I'd say it was a soppy teenager's book if it weren't for the deluge of foul language it contains. Not for me.
