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.

Carey Heywood was a new author for me. Him and Her had been sitting in my Audible library untouched for a while. I needed sometime new so settled on Him and it was delightful. The writing is good and the narration was perfect for the story. The story begins with Sarah, Miller Light, Miller and Will, her one. It is definitely a coming of age story with lots of teenage angst. He is the most popular boy in school and she is a bit of a wallflower, they have been best friends since they were children. They have secretly loved each other since day one. The book is full of misunderstandings and lies as many romance novels are. Over the course of the story both Sarah and Will grow up, become decent humans and gain success in their careers. The characters are strong and interesting. The secondary characters are well written and add much to the main characters lives and stories. The women are a little bit stereotypical in the high school era but less so as they grew up. Now a word about the narration. In book one Lucy Rivers shines giving each character a distinct voice that matures as the characters become adults. I am late to the game with this author but plan to read more of her work. She has too few books in audiobook format and I hope more of her work is recorded over time.
