"You never have to be without me, Laney, never." He lied...my everything I ever knew, trusted, wanted...I am, in fact, without him. On my own and out of my shell, I learn new things about life, friendship and...myself. Like what you've always known may not be what you've always wanted.
Dane Kendrick awakened things within me that I never knew existed, unraveling and uncovering the real Laney Jo Walker. I'm a new adult...so is my story.

loved it. I absolutely loved reading this series and it's just as good if not better in audio.
Dane and Laney story is a fabulous love triangle.
"Rating this was a struggle"
I struggled to rate this book because it was very well written, and well narrated. But it left a really bad taste in my mouth by the end, and I had to skip entire chapters because I just couldn't deal with the plot. I loved all of the characters except for the main one -- she was an awful, awful person. Narcissistic and self-centered, and not very easy to relate to (even though I am a person who actually married her high school sweetheart). By the end of the book, I wanted her to be hit by a truck. She wasn't likable and made terrible choices ... like the typical 18 year old maybe? But I just couldn't enjoy the story.
"Maybe I'm just too old for this"
Seriously felt like an adult at the children's table with this one. It's sugary sweet disney, with just a hint of r rate sprinkled in. Fairytales do come true, gorgeous girl doesn't know she is and then suddenly becomes popular, feel like I've seen this movie kinda thing.
"Did Anyone Else Just Want to Smack Laney?"
I love this author, love this book but there were just too many times in this story that I just wanted both of these great guys to move on and find someone who would appreciate them. I understand teenage angst, but this chick ... I don't care for weak female characters and Laney's neediness made her seem weak. Fortunately, this story is so well written and the characters are fully developed with each showing different levels of depth that it's easy to overlook the flaws of the characters. Cause in all honesty, I wanted to smack Evan too for being so strung out on this girl that seemed to take way more than she ever gave.
Amazing narration -- love the trio of narrators. Hope to hear them in other books in the series.
Definitely worth the price I paid. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. This was a great start.
"Good story but....."
I like stories that mirror real life instead of creating fake happy endings - the world is not a fairy tale, and in that respect, this book was great. BUT it is way too long and I hated the "heroine" by the time I was mid-way through listening. She was selfish little girl in the beginning and never grew. Each time her actions were described as "cute" by one of the male leads, I wanted to scream. This book could have 3 hours edited from it and not lose one single important moment.
"Love this book!!"
Only negative that I have is the voice of Evan. It's very obvious that The narrator of Evan is of the male persuasion so it's hard to believe his performance as in love with the main character, but the book is so good that it's easy to forgive that part.
"Good Story -- OK Performance"
Good story. Characters that make sense and grow.
Dane. He's who he is, and that's it. I appreciate his unapologetic personality.
Clear, but depressing. The main character sounded like she was sad all the time, which was only true in some instances, as far as the story.
No extreme reactions. Just a satisfying listen.
