Publisher's Summary

As a 19-year-old wunderkind doctoral candidate, Ian Waters had little interest in social interaction. Books were his companions, and that had suited him just fine. Then a hurricane named Jessen Sørensen blew into his life, throwing Ian off his axis.
On the cusp of rock stardom, Jessen had burned brightly, and Ian had fallen heart-first under his spell. But Ian soon learned he was only a temptation, a pit stop on the road to the rocker's dreams, and Jessen was gone as quickly as he'd come. Ian buried his heartache in academia, the only home he'd ever known.
When Ian encounters Jessen at a party, the seven-year separation seems insurmountable. There's too much pain, too much distrust. But Jessen declares he has a new dream, and that's a life with Ian.

Jeg elsker denne boken (i love this book)

This was such a fantastic short, my only complaint is that I wish it was longer because I loved every second of it! I have also started learning Norwegian and so Jessen from Norway was a lovely surprise. You can tell the author and narrator did a lot of research and put thought into the book because the Norwegian and the accent Tristan James uses is believable. I liked the heat between Jessen and Ian is unmistakable and fantastic to read- with Tristan’s silky voice that compliments it and makes you shiver!
this was a short book with amazing detail and I did not feel anything was left out of rushed, as other short stories tend to be. It is a new author for me and I am now anxious to read more of her work, her writing was great and very touching and sweet. It was also funny at times with Ian’s internal banter and freak-out moments. It was such a fantastic read I really want to listen to it again and again. I just felt like I was too falling in love, in all the flashbacks, and that is something I really adore in books- they make you feel with the characters.

My Thoughts on Fast Forward

This quick novella managed to pack so much story into so little time. I got to experience the fall, the crash, the heart break and the steps to mending that I look for in a romance story.

The two main characters had a whirlwind romance that swept them up before life and the pull of others tears them apart. I was completely caught up in it all.

This newest author and narrator both did a fantastic job and I look forward to experiencing more from them in future.
