I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
The story was pretty good but every conversation exchange was like, so NOT real. No way do people talk the way this was written. Almost Dick and Jane. But if you can rewrite the dialogs in your mind to how normal people exchange, the anguish in the love story pulls you in. I have to admit, I probably wouldn't have had the patience to hold on as long as Serena to get my man. There weren't a lot of physical descriptions of William woven in and out to remind me, "Oh right! He's too Hot to drop!" Not a lot of descriptive text at all, really. But I was compelled to listen through to the end, and in my world, that's a good story.
Wow, did they have a rough time being together. There were a lot of obstacles, a couple of which seemed a bit exaggerated, but I guess there are looney people out there. And William! Jeez Louise! Get a grip, man! At least he was smokin' in bed!
(small spoilers) I still don't know what happened to those who beat up Serena or why his ex decided to stop bugging him (from afar) or why Serena didn't have any friends... among other stuff. The story just had a lot of frayed ends, I guess.
The narrator was pretty good. Not all the inflections were sound but overall, the male/female parts were distinguishable without sounding pitchy or too fake.
I'll put a thumb up for this, but I hope later works are more manicured.

Serena and William share a love story that has so many twists and turns that you wonder what is really going on. The dialogue was very unrealistic. When I listen to a book I expect to hear dialogue that resembles normal human speech. This was so far removed that it did not even hit in the ballpark. the narrator's voice was also not strong enough on the William parts. Her narration did help make the story but it could have been better. Perhaps the author should sit in the park one day and just listen to how people talk. Take notes on what is heard then rewrite this story like that. Just a suggestion. I got this book via audiobook boom.
