Good story and characters.
The narrator did a good job.

Any additional comments?
This audiobook was given to me for a honest unbiased review. This was interesting. I love the whole ugly duckling turned swan, concept, however the book would have been better had she remained beautiful on the inside. She turns bitter and shallow. Trying to kill someone who hurt your feelings is childish. Hopefully book 2 will be better.
Peter, Caleb and Willow. Bet you think it is a love triangle or a menage. Wrong on both accounts.
This is a story about a woman in her early to mid 20s who had a challenging childhood complete with a mother with mental health issues and a severe weight problem. She has stepped out from her family's influence, works hard on her education and health, and finally has her own place and space. Except she is living next door to her high school nemesis. The boy who she had a crush on and who broke her heart. The boy who initiated her downward spiral before she rebuilt herself.
The catch is that Willow missed a lot of life lessons that are usually gained in school. She is a little naive, socially awkward and struggles with a slightly warped sense of self. She actually doesn't see her own self worth. Honestly as a woman you want to tell her not to change herself to meet another's expectations and that she IS enough. But then she hasn't really had a chance to have that reinforced in her yet.
Anyway, her neighbour turns out to be a friend as he helps her cope with her feelings for her boss. This is book 1 in the series and I am looking forward to the next part. I hope Willow finds herself. This book is a little funny but it is also a little sad. It has a happy-ish ending that also acts as a beginning. It is definitely interesting and presents a lot of potential for the continuation of the story in the next part.
