Publisher's Summary

Emma thinks she has life all figured out, and what she knows isn't good. For years, she's put her big sister, who was born with Down syndrome, first. Now Emma's ready to start her own life, but fate has other plans. To do the right thing for the sister she loves, Emma's dreams will just have to wait. She doesn't plan on meeting Landon - a rich, flirtatious jock, who never has to wait for anything. Not for attention, not for money, and certainly not for girls. Meeting Emma marks the first time in his life that he's had to fight for something. And Landon doesn't know how to lose. Emma has no interest in wasting her summer with a superficial guy like Landon. But very soon she realizes she is wrong about him. The question is, can she trust him? Or will he let her down like every other guy in her life? But most importantly, can Emma trust herself enough to live the life she's always dreamed of? Life has a way of sneaking in the most important lessons when you aren't looking. And once the heart gets involved, that's when the real learning begins.

Great read and listen! 5 stars!

I received a copy of the audio book of Not Yet in exchange for an honest review. But here's the thing...I only listen to audio books on my work commute, which amounts to about an hour a day. After the first few hours of this story, I didn't want to wait the whole weekend to keep "reading". So I clicked the book as well.

I don't want to be spoiler-y in my review, because I'm surprised that I didn't pick up on the major plot twist! I guess I was so entranced with the story, and had envisioned it going a totally different direction.

Emma didn't know how to trust men, and she didn't think that an arrogant jock like Landon could be the one to teach her. Life guarding that summer was the start of the change in who Landon became as a man. While at first, I questioned the legitimacy of his actions...are there really 19 year old guys that swoony...it was a nice break from the reality we hear so much. And it gives hope!

I loved Evie, Trevor, Garrett, Amy and Billy. This author took the time to make them real. The reader has no choice but to love them!

I love that the story is broken down into lessons, rather than chapters. Because after all, life is really just a series of lessons. And while Emma's goal was to become a teacher, she was learning as much as she was teaching.

I hated Dean as much as I ended up loving him. I'm so happy to know that his story is on the way.

As for the audio...I would say the narrator is a perfect match. Her voices as Emma and Landon were different enough so that you knew whose chapter you were coming back to, but she doesn't have the annoyingly fake guy voice. I'll likely go back and finish the audio, even though I finished reading the ebook. It's truly a different "reading" experience, and I always pick up something different when I listen.
