Publisher's Summary

Sarah Miller hasn't been home in seven years. She thought she could stay away forever. If it wasn't for her big brother's wedding, that is. Part of her even feels silly for staying away this long. It's not like anyone even knew what happened. Well, except for him. That guy.
The one she compared all others to. The one who set the bar so high no other guy after him could even compete. The one who made her feel like anything was possible. The one she thought she would never be good enough for. The one she spent the last seven years trying to forget. All she needs to do is make it through the next week without running into him.

These are the reviews I am not sure what to write. I really like Lucy Rivers as a narrator; she always makes you feel a part of the story.
For me the story was just ok. Nothing really stood out for me. I wanted to like it more than I do. It was well written.
Usually I am not a fan of the back and forth from past to present but this book it was seamless. The story never felt like it paused.
Sarah is a runner, when things get hard or if she isn't ready for the outcome she runs.
Will I found to be an ok guy? I wanted him to be so much more. I think I am a little disappointed, maybe because he didn't fight enough for Sarah.
I wouldn't call it a cliff-hanger because the story just drops off, to me a cliff-hanger leaves you wanting, wanting, wanting, or needing more.

Overall a good listen, I am still glad I upgraded the whisper sync.

First Chapter says it all

This entire novel could be told in no more than five sentences. And that is exactly what this author does. She retells the plot over and over and over again. She alternates between the characters currently and when they were in high school. Unfortunately, while she uses different words (sometimes,) the chapters that cover past events repeat themselves, could have been stated once up front, then never repeated again.

Just like no matter how many times you tell a lie, it doesn't make it true, no matter how many times an author simply repeats herself, it doesn't make a plot.

Needless to say, I found this to be one of the most boring books I have attempted to read lately. I could not finish it and do not recommend it.

The most amazing thing though is I understand readers can also be subjected to a second book, that evidently tells the exact same non-plot but from the man's perspective. I've seen lots of so-called novels written by so-called authors that seem to sell, even though there is absolutely no plot. But it is something of a hat trick if Heywood can actually stretch absolutely nothing into two novels. Will readers really buy the second book just because the title changes from Him to Her (talk about original) and there is a cute girl on the cover instead of a cute guy?
