This story had all the hotness without the juvenile drama -- love it! And how lucky is Frankie that she has two hot guys that want her for life. I love this story because there were grown ups acting like grown ups and handling difficult situations as adults do. This listen had it all flawed characters, developed plot, real conflicts and oh so hot sex. I was sucked in and stayed up late to finish to the very end. Penelope Ward is rising on my list of favorite authors.
Two of my favorite narrators teamed up again to make this another amazing listen. Andi and Sebastian took a good story and made it a wonderful listen. But then they can make almost anything sound good.
Absolutely worth the credit. Looking forward to the next story by Ms. Penelope.

.. because Penelope Ward, with the help of two talented narrators, hit this second chance little beauty so far out of the park it'd take divine intervention to ever find it again.
From the moment Francesca (Frankie) got tingles at the familiar voice of Mack after 7 years apart.. so did I because yes, there was instant chemistry between them - but there was so much more.. history - and I couldn't wait to find out their story. Then it became clear, as the dual POV storyline slowly unravelled itself, that it was a bittersweet love story of an innocent friendship that turned into love at the worst time in two people's lives.. when Frankie was an awkward nerdy College Student and while Mack, her drool-worthy College roommate/fantasy man, was flying home weekends to spend time with his girlfriend. Neither one owned up to their deep feelings, neither one crossed that invisible line.. and neither one was prepared for Fate's evil twist.
So their time wasn't then.. but could it be now? Trouble was Frankie had moved on and, for the past two years, had been happily living with her loving boyfriend.. and Mack? well he made it clear what he wanted, and had always wanted.. her. Mack wanted to be in Frankie's life again - yes he'd settle for her friendship.. but he wanted so much more and told her, showed her and successfully began to rekindle those once heartbreakingly doused flames. However, Fate wasn't quite done with them yet and threw them another few vicious curveballs to knock them off their destined path.. and it very nearly worked.
Penelope Ward managed to capture the loss, heartache and regret felt by both Mack and Frankie, expertly described the difficult dilemma Frankie now found herself in and the hopeful anticipation and dread Mack felt - both then and now. Mack was a good Dad and a good person who'd done the right thing, faced the consequences and he paid the price.. his heart. Frankie was a kind thoughtful Teacher and a caring girlfriend who'd once loved a boy who'd broken her heart so could she risk everything by giving it to him a second time? A well written love story where love was never the issue - just nasty twists and nasty people. This had a few flashbacks.. and heartfelt scenes, promised pledges, tender words, passionate sex, angst and a deep love that took the passing of time, as well as a whole lot of effort, before it could.. and would be forever.
Worth a credit? YES and if you too like a second chance romance.. then I'm sure you'll agree after listening to Frankie and Mack's love story - that Penelope Ward's aim, focus and skill as an Author.. along with Andi and Sebastian's awesome narration, have knocked this one out of the park. I felt this couple's pain, got twisted up in their emotional journey.. and reJOYced in their HEA's.
