Publisher's Summary

It Seemed like a Good Idea at the Time, from best-selling author Kylie Scott, is a brand-new audiobook that will have listeners hooked.
Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at 18 hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was. 
Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation - confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete had been left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town. 
Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings. 
Sometimes first loves are the truest.

It Seemed like a Good Idea at the Time

First I enjoyed this book, I am not a huge fan of before and present but it worked well for this story.

My one downfall is it ended too soon, I feel like we could have gotten another 3 good chapters of what it is like for them in the now, and even the epilogue was only like a few months. So for me, that was sad. I wanted something more.

I enjoyed the age gap, I think it worked for this book I very much enjoyed the friendship in this book that is what I liked best.

I really don’t have anything profound to say, it was a good story and I already explained what I wanted more. So on to narration.

I am a fan of Kylie but I do wish she would find more narrators, I like Andi’s work don’t get me wrong but when she is the only one narrating all Kylie’s books they can start to all sound the same even when the story is different. I know this is probably an unpopular opinion but that’s ok.

It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time

This was my first Kylie Scott book and I enjoyed it. I was a little frustrated with Peter at times, but he eventually got himself together. I loved Adele, as she was refreshing. Her humor and honesty are traits that are rarely seen in female characters.
