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.

This book definitely shocked me but I loved it! A beautiful story about love, growing up, waiting for what you truly want, redemption, and being a better person. Emma and Landon truly amazed me along with some other great characters in this book!
