Life is good. Steady. Uncomplicated. Just the way he likes things. Until one night at an unassuming L.A. bar changes everything.
Enter Gemma Hendricks. She's a successful young architect from Northern England with an adorable smile, sarcasm for days, and an unparalleled trusting heart. The attraction is instant. So is their friendship. It's also temporary because they'll both be heading home, thousands of miles apart from each other, in a few days. Or is it?
There's something Gemma wants more than anything else. And when Franco propositions her to provide what she's looking for, everything changes. Will it transform friendship into love, or will it be their ruin?

Franco's story made my heart happy!

I loved Franco's story so much! I knew he was a good guy but this book just showed how great he was. I found this story to be a little predictable but that's ok because it still made my heart happy even if I knew what was coming. The Bright Side, Gus, Franco world is so full of good-hearted people who deserve nothing but great in their lives. During the epilogue I found myself a little sad because Kate wasn't there is see how happy everyone is and to meet all the new people that would have been in her life. I know... I know it's a book but it just hit me so hard I can't help but think of them as real.

The narration of this book didn't work for me. I love Jeremy York and his narration but I do not think he was a good choice for Franco. He made Franco seem a little to wimpy and emotional with his soft spoken voices. I think Franco needed to be a little more rough sounding like Gus was. I still gave it 5 stars for narration because he is a good narrator it wasn't him, just more about casting.

A rebound from Gus.

I have to be honest that Bright Side is one of my favorite books ever and when Gus came out I was so excited, and then I was kind of let down. I liked Gus, but it was kind of predictable and a little too scripted after the typical romance for me, but Franco was a come back for me. I liked that some of the humor from Bright Side was back and it was a little less of a patterned romance. The wit and sarcasm of these characters were great and I'm glad I finally listened to this. Jeremy York is an awesome narrator and made a great Franco.
