Publisher's Summary

Posey Osterhagen can't complain. She owns a successful architectural salvaging company, she's surrounded by her lovable, if off-center, family, and she has a boyfriend-sort of. Still, something's missing. Something tall, brooding and criminally good-looking - something like Liam Murphy.
When Posey was 16, the bad boy of Bellsford, New Hampshire, broke her heart. But now he's back, sending Posey's traitorous schoolgirl heart into overdrive once again. She should be giving him a wide berth, but it seems fate has other ideas....

1st for this author and narrator

I've been listening to this book while confined to my computer instead of listening to background music. I really enjoyed this book, though I wasn't sure I would. At first glance, Posey seems like a weak female character, which I don't particularly like. But, she really isn't exactly. She let too many people get away with treating her crappy. But, she had just enough something to make me keep listening. She deals with a lot of things anyone could relate to in a very realistic, even if not preferable IMO, way. Even when I was routing for her to tell Liam to take a flying leap off of a rolling doughnut over the highest cliff, her reactions were believable, if not irritating. You know people like this who aren't exactly doormats, but take way too much crap. When I thought she should tell her cousin, Dante, and a few others to join Liam on that doughnut, still her actions were relatable even if a little frustrating. She's like many people you know who happen to have a slow fuse. And, those people can be very frustrating to those of us with a short fuse. And, I couldn't even dislike Liam. He was just conflicted. This book was well done, with very likable characters even though you might want to smack them at times. Loved her brother in law, John. Xe Sands did a great job with all the characters. But, I really liked her characterization of him.
This was my first time listening to Xe Sands. She has a very different style that worked well with this book. And, she really pulls you in.

Sweet Story

Until There Was You by Kristan Higgins (Audio Edition)
Narrated by Xe Sands

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ This was a sweet story, though similar to the last one I listened to - where the heroine has loved a man since they were teenagers. This time however it was the hero of the story she loved AND we got to see some of the story from his pov! Which I always enjoy.

I liked Posey and Liam together. Both were independent and happy with themselves. I found it funny how over protective Liam was towards his daughter, always saying he knew what the teenage boys were thinking having been one himself. I liked how he put his daughter first, even though it made him seem cold towards Posey sometimes.

Posey was caring and sweet, this however, seemed to let her get walked on by people at times. She was brave and honest with her feelings though, as well as true to herself which I give her props for. That takes guts to put it all out there, considering she's been hurt by him before. - That statement in the summary gave me pause. I hate when people go back to the people that hurt them.. or in this case, never stop loving that person in spite of being hurt. Again, I had this book stored away for later reading.. but it's Kristan Higgins.. She's great! and she made this scenario seem okay in the end for me, as I kinda hoped she would.

The narrated of course was awesome. I have to say, she is one of my favourites! Sarcastic, and witty, she has a sexy male voice she uses for the hero's which is better than some of the male narrators I have heard. She is one of the main reasons I have moved up these last couple books from the depths of my tbr pile.
