The story was cheesy and descriptive to the point of being cringeworthy. I could predict ahead everything that was happening and although the emotion and setting was far too descriptive, there was no depth to the emotion. I liked the way Richard wasn't made a villain yet I was left feeling no empathy for Emma and that she used him.
The narrator was ok but every single s pronounced, even in the lowest tone, hurt my ears.
I am glad I only listened to it when I was driving but even so wish I could have my time back.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
Someone who enjoys a light, fluffy, predictable read with no great surprises. Someone who enjoys an easy read to wash over them.
What will your next listen be?
Nothing in this genre.
How could the performance have been better?
I don't think the performance was bad, I just don't think the voice artist was given an opportunity to prove what they can really do. Therefore the performance was dull.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Story of Us?
I would have changed the storyline. Unfortunately it was a chocolate box story with cringed clichés everywhere.
Any additional comments?
This book was not for me and I was quite annoyed because the blurb was very misleading. Had I know what the true story was about and the genre it fits in I never would have chosen to read it.

There's something that is wrong about falling for someone shortly after ending another relationship. Worse than this, she flirted with Jack while still with Richard. It's not a love story as much as it is a story trying to fool readers that the grass is greener elsewhere. I didn't like Emma or Richard. It's a love triangle that's just wrong. Three stars is because I love Dani Atkins style, but didn't like this story line.
