Well, that's almost all I can say about it. I never believe reviews because they are so subjective so I'll give facts. 1. Main character is down to earth and smart. I really appreciate it when authors make the main character a real woman and not a Barbie doll. 2. Real life happens and life moves on. The story does include real life situations and how people deal with them and learn. 3. Narrator did an excellent job. I found no fault with her except in parts I did speed to 1.25. Overall, I don't believe I had laugh out loud moments but think that I would recommend to a friend for the weight and beauty of the story.

I really do not know how I honestly feel about this book. It is certainly not a run of the mill romance novel. This is the first time I have read a book by this author. I believe she has vision and talent.
The story begins with college heart throb Jace being tutored by the brainiac red head Maggie. True to all romance novels they have their ups and downs. Maggie see's something in Jace that attracts her despite his man whore ways. They fall in love and their journey begins.
I will not give spoilers but their journey is over years. In the end I have to say I am not a fan of Jace. I believe him to be weak. I am however on team Maggie. She has a spirit inside of her that I admire. She is strong, realistic and is not afraid to Google to find out whatever information she needs to learn something new.
I think the story is too drawn out at times. I believe better editing could of prevented this hence the four stars. The performance of the narrator was very good. Perhaps even the reason I did not skip ahead during some parts of the story.
The story line sucks you in. It is realistic. One cannot help but be drawn to Maggie. I really tried to feel for Jace, but could not. I would be interested to see other reviews in regard to him.
This book is credit or sale worthy, in my humble opinion.

Initially I thought the book was written for young adults, with a very soft approach to a young developing love. I was wrong in my assumption. The book is in two parts. If you want the happily ever after, read the first part only. It is a sweet college story between an intelligent but awkward and innocent girl and a jock. Yes, you will get your happily ever after after all the torment of the characters exploring and discovering themselves. It is the second part that really takes the story to the next level. It explore beyond the happily ever after to the challenges of loving and the choices each person has to make when faced with what feels like insurmountable circumstances. The characters are beautifully written, especially Maggie. You just cannot help but love her. The narration of the story is also very well done as well.
