Summary

Lily Connor has focused all her energy into becoming a successful wedding planner, and after five years, she's on the precipice of taking on more responsibility at Southerland Wedding Company. When the chance finally presents itself, it comes with a complication she couldn't have dreamt up in her worst nightmares. With the bride and groom away for a month, Lily needs to work with the bride's best friend, Bennett Burke, a woman she never thought she'd see again.

It was only for a few months, a study abroad experience that felt plucked from those same dreams turned nightmares, but Bennett is back, and Lily wants nothing to do with her. Bennett broke her heart the first time, and Lily swore she'd never let something like that happen again.

Working together can't be avoided, but falling in love? Lily needs to stop that at all costs, even if it comes at the sake of her own happiness.

Contains mature themes.

A charming wlw romance

Don't get put off by the book jacket on Audible or what seems to be, at the start of the story, yet another poor-little-rich-girl tale. It a nicely written romance which, apart from the occasional editorial oversight, hangs together well. Despite some angst in the storyline, this is not a heavy novel and leaves the reader/listener with a warm glow, just as a good romance should.
While this is not a rom-com, which is what Lori Prince's narrative talent is best suited to, her style is nevertheless well suited to the tone of this novel. As always, she brings the characters to life and differentiates well between each one. My only criticism is that, like virtually all American voice artists and actors, she makes absolutely no effort to even attempt a French pronunciation of French names and words, but this may be the fault of the American producer and the US centric production company.

Loved it!

I'm not the biggest fan of flashbacks, usually I like my story to be set in one time but I thought the author did a great job using it to get us to learn more about the characters. excellent narration as always by Lori Prince, I hope here are more releases coming soon from this author 5/5

So creative! Couldn't stop listening!

I'm absolutely in love with this book. Definitely in my top three and certainly something different! Just enough angst, happy tears, hot 🔥 too! The narrator was absolutely perfect. The ending was so complete. It didn't leave me wondering! A must read!

2 ladies, no backbone. Its more erotica than story

I had a hard time finishing this one. The two main characters are just a little too pathetic for my taste. one lets her parents control her, even after college. The other her boss and her seemingly only client. I know its a trope to move the plot along but, after a while its tiresome.
As I said in the title, unlike her other audiobook, this one lack substance and is filled with more sex scenes.

What a well written story.

I’ve been reading/listening to lesbian romance novels for almost ten years now- with that being said I think I found my new favorite author. I’m sad to see she only have two books out so far on Audible but I know I will keep checking for the newest one. Then & Now was beautifully written with in depth characters all around. The story had its ups and downs, always kept you wanting more! The steamy parts were accurate and described perfectly. Can’t wait to read more from you Monica McCallan. I’m going to be McCalling you out for a sequel!

Awesome listen!

I had fun listening to this! Similar feel to Road to Madison by Elle Spencer, but with just a little bit less angst!

Outstanding storyline and performance

This was a n enjoyable story with a different twist of now and then the characters were well thought out and the plot was different but believable yet HOT.

The performance was exceptional.
Another winner!

Heartwarming :)

This is my second book from this author and I have loved them both! This story gave me all the feels. We are taken on a journey that is relatable with high highs and very low lows. People grow and change but heartache is a huge deterrent!

Unsatisfying, tbh. Good, but just too easy.

Was an interesting premise, but ya, "friends" were always right, never really got pushback from the main characters... feelings of the people involved didn't really get hashed out. And no yelling.... this one needed at least one yelling scene but nah, everyone handled things like adults... and ya, idk, being reasonable in the situation shown in the book made sense.. just wanted someone to yell. made it a tad borring and too easy. Haha but a alright book, made a drive less borring.
