A Real Life Story

The very brief synopsis on the front cover got me interested straight away.. I loved the whole concept - we live in such a high pressured and fast world, partners regularly become passing ships. Too many of us have first hand experience of toxic relationships too.
This toxic relationship had a happy ending with the help of some very supportive friends.
I want to know where my Leon was when I managed to escape my very toxic relationship.
Beth O'Leary - this is a great book. I loved it and I most certainly recommend it to other readers.

A Great Read !!!

What a fabulous story. I was hooked from start to finish. A great read during 'Lockdown'. It had my undivided attention.
I love both these authors, both independently and when they pair up.
Two of my favourite Narrators too, who brought this book to life.
I was swept away. A terrific read ladies. I loved it.
I recommend this love story to all readers.

This was my first time of listening to a novel written by Taryn Quinn, but I would definitely get anotherr book by her.
I love Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross. They are the perfect choice of Narrators in a story like this - a guy meets girl romance...... or shall I say wealthy, sexy guy meets gal romance!
I enjoyed listening this book. It was a true blast of escapism - great!
Oh boy, do we need that at the moment. Thanks Taryn.

I love tp read A. L. Jackson's books. I like her writing style , description and the detail with which she writes. I love the Falling Stars series. They are stories I have difficulty putting down.
The choice of Narraters is excellent too, though I felt Zachary Webber was very monotone in his delivery, hence the four stars out of five, but that's me being finicky! Another great read!

A beautiful story brilliantly narrated by two of the finest Narraters.
This is a story of a young love between a ‘broken’ boy and a ‘broken’ girl and how they deal with the ‘curve balls’ that life throws them and finally find an ending that's right for them.
Aly I loved listening to this book - a real winner for me!
I hope others think this way too.
I would definitely recommend this heartfelt story to other readers.

I love Milly Jonson's novels and her latest book is no disappointment. Quite the opposite - I loved it! So perfectly timed with the UK's current debacle of politics, this story brings a sobering aspect to it all. In a world of chaos, love can still be found along with the importance of family.
A great story, brilliantly narrated by the one and only Colleen Prendergast - I would definitely recommend this read.

Wow!
This story really resonates with me. Although not the same condition, mine mimics the same path as the main character Luca. I too get anxious about going out; I panic when surrounded by large groups of people and one by one, as my condition worsens, my world gets smaller, as friends become fewer and fewer because they dont have the time to get to understand my situation.
So there comes a point where you either accept life as it is, or you fight to change it for the better - Flight or Fight!
Another really well plotted story by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. Empathetic to the end. A love story included too. Brilliantly narrated. I didn’t want the story to end. I thought this story was well written and would have no problems in recommending it to other readers/listeners. Go on dip your toe in.

This is my first, but by no means my last read, from Milly Johnson. I loved it. From the diversity of characters to all the reasons by which they were linked. Beautifully written and perfectly performed.
