A lot can happen in 10 years, and Gwen and Craig have been there for each other through it all, from meeting on the playground to juggling college finals. But their long-standing friendship hasn't been without its challenges.
Gwen keeps her emotions locked down tight, and when someone hurts her, she shuts down and shuts them out. Craig has always been her hero, but when one night leaves her broken, she realizes he has the power to hurt her the most.
Unable to get past Gwen's emotional barriers, Craig focuses on baseball and reaching for his dreams, but he misses his best friend. He wonders if he'll ever have the same relationship he did with the girl he met 10 years ago.
When the barriers finally come down and their true feelings are revealed, will they finally become the couple everyone says they're destined to be, or will the darkness from Gwen's past tear them apart forever?

A story that will test the time of friendship...
I have been a fan of Bethany Lopez's books for some time now and will continue to read and/or listen to anything she writes.
As for the performance by Honey St. Dennis it would depend on the story she is narrating. As my first time listening to her it was not one that I could fully get into.
I am not a fan of this narration. The flow of the story felt somewhat rush, sounded the same throughout the read, and did not give me any feels when listening to a story being told. For this particular book I had preferred reading it on my own.

I enjoyed this 4 stars book about long-term friendships and how over time things happen and people grow up and whether to see if time can truly test them. Needless to say in Gwen and Craig’s story…years have past and they both have feelings for more with one another but something is holding them back. Their story is more than just the typical breaking of their friendship if things turn bad it is that if walls are not broken down it can be driven to despair. With out revealing anything I will note that some scenes can affect the faint of heart, which in turn will either make or break the long-term friendship.

Great as a Stand-Alone or in the Series
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. I have listened to this book and one other in the series and was pleased to find that I didn't have to know the stories that came before or after. I have added one or two more from the series where I can get on sale, and added the remaining books to my wishlist. The characters and stories have peeked my interest and I want more.
