The kiss lasted for a second, and she was struggling with all she had to not melt into it. She pushed him gently away, reminding him that he had Ashley.
"She's just there for the sex. I can't make you be with an empty wreck like me. I respect you too much to allow that to happen. You being with me is the worst thing you could do, and so just one kiss and you being here like this with me is more than I can ask for. I respect you too much to do anything else," he uttered.
"That's the worst thing you could have said," she stood up, moving toward the fence rapidly. "And so disrespectful! You don't respect me! You're toying with me!" she said, sobbing, clumsily climbing over the fence, and falling gracelessly onto the other side.
She straightened up quickly and, without looking back, she ran toward Ashley's house.

.A lot more realistic than expected
Can't recommend this one
I was looking forward to this book. Unfortunately it just didn't live up to my expectations. I have listened to several other books by Kathleen Hope that I really enjoyed however this story was a let down, it was not well written, it felt choppy, didn't flow well and didn't hold my attention. It's not a story I would listen to again or recommend.
Two friends are both interested in the same man but for different reasons. One just physical and one for the lifetime relationship. More time was spent on the first no meaning relationship than the important, deeper and lasting one. The characters never really developed, they were just there.
A Sargent and a Colonel would not have the type of conversation they had in this story. A Colonel asks, a Sargent does without question.
I have listened to several books that Theresa Stephens has narrated which I enjoyed. I have to say the narration for this story seemed a bit monotone at times and didn't flow as smoothly as the other books I have listened to. I'm not sure if the choppy writing had an effect on the narration or if Theresa just wasn't the right narrator. She has a pleasant voice and the narration was clearly spoken. She has some good character voices. Her voice for Ashley although it fit the way the character was written(shallow) just grated on me. As I said before I have enjoyed other books she has narrated and will listen to her again in the future.
It doesn't make sense to read the table of contents in the beginning of the book. No one is going to remember the titles to the chapters. They need to be read at the beginning of the chapter.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.
