Summary

I fell in love with my best friend but he didn't love me back. Sounds like a cheesy line from a country song, right? Too bad it's the story of my life. I thought that I'd moved on, swore he was the one. But that facade began to fade in the flash of a half-carat diamond ring. Now years later, here I am, running back to the boy who broke my adolescent heart, hoping that just maybe, he'll be the one to piece it back together... 

I fell in love with my best friend while she fell in love with him. Ironically, it was my own damn fault. I practically served her up on a silver platter. So I turned to my second love, basketball, while moving across the country to escape. For years, I've been sitting on the sidelines - watching, waiting. Now it's time to make my move. No more fouling out. This time, I'm going to score. Contains mature themes.

Cliche story!

I am going to be honest and say the only reason I got this audible is to listen to Jakobi's voice! It is absolutely wonderful! The story is romantic and all! I just love Jakobi's voice!

Adults Beware...

The story is not bad at all...a little drawn out and not really developed...but not bad. What is bad is the drawn out love story that is this whole book. If you are an adult, the issues the characters have in this book will drive you nuts. If you are a young adult, you may be able to relate but...its damn long and drawn out. If that kind of thing tickles your fancy, by all means read this title. Not for me though...I am glad to have made it out with my sanity.

DNF

I couldn’t finish this book. The MC’s are both irritating. I get that these are 20 year olds but i just can’t. Heather is one of my favorite authors but this book just didn’t do it for me. I can never understand how someone can be so in love with the other person and 1.) not try to tell them how you feel and 2.) repeatedly hook up with others especially while the one they want is right there and they still hook up with someone else. I guess I’m a prude.
And the advice that Colts friends gave him and Alex, to make the other jealous? Dumb just dumb. I hate not finishing this because I would have liked to see how it ends up but her walking on on him getting a BJ is the end for me. Just not my jam...

The narrators were ok. I don’t think I’ve heard books with them as the narrators, they did an ok job

train wreck!!!

AM I the only One who thinks this book was like a train wreck? heroin crying all the time, cheating on presumed fiance on the first day when she gets to LA, THEN cheating again with other guy? Hero is getting BJs left and right, making out with other Girls on front of heroin? If You are not info that kind of things,just dont buy this one. it was seriously waste of time.

Love Ali & Colt!

Loved the story and the narrators! The thing I like most about this book is you get the entire story about them, the past, current and a great ending before the epilog. Seems like most love stories have the happy ending the last 30 minutes of the story without getting enough of all the love and feels, this one does not do that and its very refreshing. I loved the characters and they performance was stellar! made you feel the love between them. Most definitely worth the credit!

It was fine.

As 54 year old woman, I would say this book is primarily written for a younger, 20+ year old audience.

Just as good as the book!!!!

Loved everything, the narrators were awesome, I own a paper copy of the book and loved it then, and now, it makes it better, and yes I would highly recommend this book and the other other one coming up Boomerangs is funny as hell and a well written romantic comedy, just loved it, again, and I did lend a friend a copy of the book, which in turn she is buying the audio book. Thanks Heather. Maria
