Publisher's Summary

Hanna Boudreaux has lived in the small town of Willow all her life. She’s sweet, cute, and quiet.
Hanna has a moment of epiphany when she realizes her crush for forever, Raiden Ulysses Miller, is never going to be hers. She sees her life as narrow and decides to do something about it.
Raiden Miller is the town’s local hero. A former marine with the medal to prove his hero status, he comes home shrouded in mystery. It takes a while, but eventually Hanna catches his eye.
After all these years of Raid and Hanna living in the same town, the question is: Why? Is Raid interested in Hanna because she’s sweet and cute? Or does Raid have something else going on?

best book ever

Where does Raid rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The best book I've listened to by far. Great story really touched home for me. The first booked I actually cried listening to.

Review of the narration

What does Dara Rosenberg bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Dara Rosenberg's voice was exactly right for Hanna in my opinion. Sweet, quirky, adorable and absolutely communicated everything that was Hanna to me. I had read the book before and Ms Rosenberg impersonated Hanna very well in the dialogue, I also liked her narration of the story. I didn't like her narration of Raid as much, but it didn't mind it. What really didn't work for me was her prounciation of Hannas family name, Boudreaux. It sounded like "boudoir" in my ears.
If it wasn't for that small thing I would have given the narration 5 stars, but it bugged me.

Excellent voice for Hanna! Overall well done!

Any additional comments?

I love this story about an anti-hero, and a dorky lovable heroine.

LOVE... Love...Love

The goofy heroin that moons over high school hottie. Whilst a cliché begging, this is an utterly unique story. Hannah, now 26, her high school crush, Raid, has been in the army and seen the most harrowing things in life a person can see and he is suffering with these memories. Whilst Hannah's life is very narrow as she is hidden in her books and looking after her grandmother she manages to get entangled, unconsciously in the drug business; but now Raid has her back.... but that doesn't mean that their troubles are over. This is one of Ashley's best story lines with countless twist and turns whilst also being hilariously funny as this unconventional couple are paired together!

Good story, did not enjoy narration

Such a pity that the narrator mispronounced so many words. Sundry is not pronounced sun-dry, which is one of the many that sticks in my mind.

I always enjoy Kristen Ashley’s stories. Raid and Hannah are an interesting couple. Hannah could have been a little stronger in the face of Raids issues, but I suppose that would change the story.

Overall, a low score because of the narration but an emotional ride, none the less.
