Summary

What happens when you fall for your best friend, but they fall in love with someone else? Nothing is what it seems in this unrequited-love new-adult romance. 

Miles knew Nessa never had eyes for him. Only when someone new tries to hurt her, he knows he can’t stand back any longer. It’s time she finds out the man he is behind the glasses and beneath the shell he wrapped himself in. 

But now he has to hope that once she sees the real him, she’ll stay. Because he doesn’t want to let go, even if someone else tries to make that choice for them both.

It's Nessa and Miles's turn!

When life doesn't go as planned, Nessa picks up her broken, embarrassed heart and tries to move on. A date should help do the trick to get her over her best friend, Pacey. But when their is no chemistry, she pushes him off. Miles is there to help pick up the pieces though. After a drunk night, and a kiss, these two were destined to meet up in a romance, right? They both have noticed each other, but have tiptoed around their attraction. Miles holds a secret and guilt that keeps his away from love. And Nessa is being haunted by a crazy ex. Will these two finally figure out their inevitable fate? Friends to lovers is a favorite trope of mine and this story pushes all the buttons. Nessa is the most frustrating of the 4 girls to me, and I love that I finally have gotten to know and appreciate her. She is quite the girl. Miles is the strong, silent type, but his secret has made him like that. I enjoyed the breaking of his silence and the way he is with Nessa. And this friends ensemble is the best! It's like they are my own group to come and hang out with! I am loving this series and can't wait to delve into My Bad Decisions.

Stephen Dexter and Emma Wilder give a performance that is so easy to fall into. Dexter becomes Miles. His strong, emotional voice is the perfect mix of love and vulnerability. Wilder continues her narration of this series as Nessa, Her consistent voices throughout make this an easy listen, and she i flawless. This team is amazing and made for a fantastic listen.

Great Friends to lovers Listen!

Another great friends to lovers story from Carrie Ann Ryan. Miles was into Nessa but she hadn't noticed. This slow burn comes together amazingly. Great story & great listen. Both Stephen Dexter & Emma Wilder did an awesome job narrating!

Cannot wait for next in series

Book 3 in On My Own series by Carrie Ann Ryan narrated by Stephen Dexter and Emma Wilder.
This book is about Nessa and miles both original characters and all the other books in the series and it carries on from the previous book. So in the previous book Nessa eventually tells Pacey that She loves him but thankfully it does work itself out a little bit and Nessa Realises that it she’s not in love with him but the idea of it and family in this book seems to get over it very quickly and starts a very slow burning relationship with miles. Really love how everything built them between them especially with the fact that Miles clearly had a thing for Nessa in the previous book especially when he was about to beat up Pacey for his part in breaking heart.
Also with Carrie Ann Ryan but she always have a element of torture a little bit and some miles his was quite distinctive but I did feel that it was overdone maybe a little bit yes what happened to him was awful and he could say that he might of had a play part to play in it personally I think maybes whole family need to go to therapy instead of just blaming Miles so this did get a little bit old for me especially as it was re-done over and over and over again Through the story eventually thankfully did come to a conclusion at the end of the book and hopefully we can move on from his torture or his faults as he felt he had. This is the first time I’ve listened to Stephen Dexter as a narrator didn’t like him and he did try and pull off a British accent but not very well personally mostly to do with the fact that if the original Pacey in the books was narrated by Shane East who is a fantastic British narrator very drool worthy. Emma Wilder is actually one of my favourite female narrators and to be honest could probably pulled this book off on the road was nice to have a mail in there I just wish that they would do it as a dual narration I think it’s called when one reads guys I’m en route to females but I quite like that but to be honest Emma Wilder is absolutely amazing as the narrator.
Absolutely loved the epilogue Cannot wait for the next book in the series absolutely love Carrie Ann Ryan I love that she writes a lot of genres just finished her new witch series and it is amazing.

Love for Miles…

Miles is a the hot nerd who in the group who doesn’t date. He is too busy with his classes and carries a secret that won’t let him be happy. Nessa was crushed when his best friend found his girl. Now she finds herself attached to Miles, and doubting if it will be the same as his last crush. I felt for Miles and the survivor guilt he had to carry, plus his way too strict and sometimes cruel parents. But he and Nessa will find their way, with a bit of suspense and a stalker case in their way. Great voices for this dual narration.

So good

This was brilliant. As soon as it finished I wanted to jump back into it again. The characters were so well developed and I loved the growth that they went through was beautiful. I loved the narration as I found it really highlighted their emotions and gave them so much depth.

I could not recommend this one more

Drama, “Teenage” Angst, Good Story Overall

This book was cuter in some ways than the others and not as much at times.

Miles had been crushing on Nessa from afar and he finally started to feel a bit of reciprocation from her but she was nervous due to the fall out from her crush in the previous book. However they had a conversation about their feelings and they were off and running.

HOWEVER: BOTH of these characters were SUPER introspective and it got a little annoying about hearing all the self doubt from both sides.

The narrators for this are Stephan Dexter and Emma Wilder. I very much enjoy both of them as actors!

Great story! Loved the characters!

I really enjoyed this story! The characters were great and I loved getting to see Nessa and know her better. We saw more of her in the last book, Mackenzie and Pacey's, as she had a crush on Pacey that they were dealing with. It was great to see her truly past that and moving on from the awkwardness that she felt regarding it. Miles has a crush on Nessa but he hasn't really let it be known. They had a little thing happen when Nessa was drunk and Miles was taking care of her with a missed kiss that when it finally comes out it allows them to realize they are both drawn to each other. Miles and Nessa both have a lot that they are dealing with from outside influences with financial and family things. They have to figure out how to move forward with all of it amidst Nessa getting a stalker. I loved the way that things developed between these two characters. They were trying not to develop feelings as neither wanted to get hurt or hurt the other person with school coming to an end and not knowing exactly where there paths were taking them and feeling overwhelmed with everything going on. It felt real and believable and really drew you to these characters as you just wanted them to take the chance with each other since they fit so well together. This was a fantastic story that pulled me in from beginning to end and I can't wait to get the next book in the series with the last roommates as well.
Narrators did a fantastic job with the characters and bringing them to life.

Steamy and Heartwarming

I love a friends to lovers story and this one was amazing. Nessa and Miles are adorable and I love how their relationship developed.

Both Ness and Miles have issues from their past that they’re trying to work through. Nessa is still feeling embarrassed from her crush on Percy and she’s still dealing with the death of her mother. Miles is the quiet one of the roommates and blames himself after an accident that took away his twin sister. Miles has always been the one you can count on and he’s had a crush on Nessa. After Nessa has a run in with a guy that won’t take no for an answer, her friendship with Miles gets stronger.

Miles is such an amazing guy and I think he has moved up to my favorite of the roommates. Behind those nerdy glasses is a strong man who has a dirty side that I’m more than okay with. His past broke my heart and how his parents were treating it. Nessa is a sweet girl who was trying to find herself while dealing with personal issues while balancing college life. Miles was protective of Nessa without being overbearing. Their relationship had a nice balance that both were able to thrive through.

I have loved every narrator choice for the audiobooks in this series. Emma Wilder and Stephen Dexter were phenomenal bringing this story to life.

Well Done!

These two have an interesting back story. I liked how Miles is “into” her from the beginning but never that he would have a chance. Nessa has some struggles and she swore to never “like” anyone from the “guy” house again. She never saw Miles coming. I ended up really liking these two. Especially Nessa’s father. What a great guy! Miles family..eh they grew on me.

I did listen to this on audio. Stephen Dexter and Emma Wilder are the narrators. I could listen to these two all day! They always make my day more enjoyable.

I love the narrators on this one. They really brought the characters to life and enhanced the story.

I didn’t want this book to end, although I will admit to hoping for a Storm cameo. Only fair when Nessa works for Storm’s wife right? We have gotten to know Miles and Nessa over the other books, but I was in no way expecting their backstories. Especially Miles past. As with the other roommates, Nessa and Miles are juggling school, jobs, and friendships. Ever since Nessa drunkenly kissed Miles neither have been able to stop thinking about the other. I felt a connection to Nessa that I don’t normally feel with other characters. Overall this was another great book by Carrie Ann Ryan.

Hot page turner

This is the 3rd story in the On My Own Series, and Carrie Ann Ryan continues to increase the story's intensity and the chemistry between the characters with each release. Miles and Nessa was a slower burn than the first two as you learn their backstory and present lives, but once they realize they should be together, watch out because their chemistry is pretty hot.

The narration by Stephen Dexter and Emma was terrific; they were the perfect voices for Miles and Nessa.
