Publisher's Summary

It's crazy how fast the buzz comes back after you've been sober for so long.
Whiskey stood there, on my doorstep, just like he had one year before. Except this time, there was no rain, no anger, no wedding invitation - it was just us.
It was just him - the old friend, the easy smile, the twisted solace wrapped in a glittering bottle.
It was just me - the alcoholic, pretending like I didn't want to taste him, realizing too quickly that months of being clean didn't make me crave him any less.
But we can't start here.
No, to tell this story right, we need to go back.
Back to the beginning.
Back to the very first drop.
This is my love letter to Whiskey. I only hope he reads it.

Horrible Narrator - Read instead of listening

I struggled to finish this book, and it had nothing to do with the story... The narration was absolutely horrid. Not only was the narrator's nasaly voice hard to bare, she often used a "valley-girl" like inflection which brought nothing to the story and was just plain annoying. She had almost no grasp on the tone the characters were using.

The book itself was decent and at times slighty poetic. I wasn't a fan of the way the author eluded to what would happen next, but characters were likable. I probably would have enjoyed it more had I read it instead of listening.

Preparing myself to be stoned

I want to start by saying that I really wanted to love this book. Everyone I know that has read it has adored it, that leaves me to believe the issue is with me. This is totally my opinion and please don't anyone hate me.

Kandi is a very talented and the book was very well written. Her character development was off the charts. I have a hard time remembering character names when there gets to be too many but Kandi made every single character memorable and I had such a great connection to all the characters.

The reason why I am not rating this 5 stars is because I found the main characters completely immature and unrealistic. They ruined way too many lives, over and over, including their own and I just don't think anyone has the motivation to do that to themselves for over a decade. I was left frustrated, irritated and annoyed.

That being said, I listened to the book straight through, I couldn't stop just wondering how this madness would end. I never once considered not finishing it.

Lauren Sweet is not the narrator for me. When she is just telling the story, I think she's great. Easy voice to listen to and her tone is great. Then the narratives come in and her voice gets extremely whiny and high pitched and I just really don't care for it.
