Robbie Jacobs is content being just one of the guys. For years, she's run with her "Pack," a group of rowdy boys she went to high school with and used to party with, and now leans on in times of trouble. Sure, she has a couple of gal pals, but none of them are as close as the Pack.
Gray Smythe has been the unchallenged leader of their group of friends for years. Stoic and determined, he's managed to be there for them all through some crazy shit. But when Robbie, the only girl in their group, gets into a car accident, the line between friendship and lover suddenly gets a hell of a lot thinner.
One stubborn Taurus man is sure he knows what's right and wrong, and one woman is fighting to win back her body and a chance at love. Will Robbie believe Gray is actually forever devoted?

Writer, reader, now an avid listener, why hadn't I discovered this before!
I was given this book in exchange for an honest opinion.
I think that this had a lot of potential, but in being honest, I wasn't as interested in it as I'd have liked. The beginning let us into the life of the two kids, but we never really get to see what they went through or at least some of it. And that made their friendship and relationship feel forced.
Of course the accident is terrible and the stuff that Robbie throws at Gray is mean, but she's determined and I did like that side to the story. I have to admit that I wanted the book to end much sooner than it did as well. We all like a happy ending, but I felt that it went on for too long. I think this is just down to not having the right path plotted out before this was started, or maybe it really should have been a novel rather than a short.
The narrator was great, I enjoyed her performance and the character traits were interesting and easy to know who was talking. :)
Thanks for allowing me the listen into this world. I will look out for more from both, but might be a little more picky on if I actually snag it.
Narration, Suzanne Barbetta, really good. Good storyteller, good characterizations, really nice listen.
This is my first book in this series and I really enjoyed it. My only complaint is that it's 2:56 and I would not have complained if there was more!
Gray and Robbie began 'the pack' with a silly pledge to each other as children after stumbling upon each other in a muddy ditch. Both children with unloving and abusive parents, they forge a friendship that is forever and they are devoted to each other.
When Robbie makes a bad choice and ends up in a horrific accident, Gray stays by her side, making huge personal sacrifices to nurse her back to health. These are two really likable characters and this is a terrific friends to lovers tale of two young people fighting their mutual attractions while fighting a bigger battle towards Robbie's recovery.
I thought this was a sweetly romantic story and as I said before, my only complaint is that it isn't longer. Really enjoyed the characters and just wanted more time in their world. Definitely could re-listen to this one and would definitely listen to others in the series!
