Summary

When I first met him I resisted. Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass. That was a lie. It never faded. And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard. There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all the decade that separated us. Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword. Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love - the big, intense, never-been-like-this-before love - landed me in therapy. Now I'm heading to college, and it's time to give love a clean slate again. But can I really start over when he's still in my life? Because the one man I've always wanted is also the only guy I absolutely can't have.... And he wants me just as fiercely. Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?

Beautiful, Sweet Forbidden Romance!!

21 Stolen Kisses by Lauren Blakely stole my heart. I loved everything about this book. The narration by Marisa was wonderful.

This is a beautiful and sweet forbidden romance between Noah and Kennedy. While there's only an eight year age difference they knew everyone else would think this was wrong. But how could something that fits together so perfectly be wrong? Kennedy is not like your typical 17-year-old. She is old before her time. Kennedy and Noah have so much in common they are just made for each other. Their love of musical theater brought them together. Noah is one of the few people she can tell her feelings about her mother. Her mother has been cheating on her father and making her hide this ever since she was just a little girl. Kennedy finally told her father and their marriage dissolved. She's living with the guilt of having to keep all the secret of all the married men her mother has been with. Kennedy goes on a journey to try to right the wrong by sending love letter apologies to all the people her mother hurt. Finally wanting to get back at her mom and have her found out. Kennedy had to break off her relationship with Noah for fear of her parents finding out and ruining his career. She just has a little time until she turns 18 and they can be together. Noah is madly in love with her and will do anything for her. You will melt at what a sweetheart he is and how much he loves her. But is that love enough? Kennedy begins to question everything in her life and this broke my heart. Throughout the book we get snippets of their 21 stolen kisses when they were together. I want those kisses! If you are looking for a book full of sex, then this book isn't for you. But, if you are looking for true love and romance then get ready to love this book! 5 amazing stars!!

Poetic stolen kisses

Where does 21 Stolen Kisses rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love 21 Stolen Kisses’ audiobook, it’s a perfect companion to this fascinating book.

What did you like best about this story?

I was eager to listen my favorite moment in the book, the ending. And it was as perfect or even more as when I read it the first time. It was very romantic and beautiful.

What about Marisa Vitali’s performance did you like?

Marisa Vitali did an amazing job with the narration of 21 Stolen Kisses. Her soft voice made a perfect translation of Kennedy’s personality and when she was reading the Stolen Kisses it was poetic, beautiful. Her inflections for Noah *sigh* were wonderful. I could hear and feel all his love toward Kennedy in her voice. It was amazing. I also enjoyed her voices for the secondary characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!!

Any additional comments?

So disappointed

I normally love Lauren Blakely, I own at least 7 of her books. Because if that, I did not read reviews or the description well when ordering. The story is juvenile, and quiet frankly, it boarders on pedophilia. “Only 8 years” difference with a mature 17 year old. Normally I enjoy the ride with Ms. Blakely and don’t want interruptions with her stories but I almost deleted this book about 5 times .. at the end I wish I had.

Slow-Going Story

Too slow, with time jumps past and present, it was a bit confusing and just couldn't keep my attention. I pushed through because I love the Author, but this book was a miss for me.

The fact that the book never seem to come together. The flow of the book was off the whole time.

The narrator was not bad the store was just so boring.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

My reaction was so disappointed and I have reed other book for this author but this one was just a mess. I can't believe I used a credit for this.

Not too happy

I was lost. The narrator tried her best to change her voice but failed. I was uncomfortable with the storyline of a 17yr old and a 25 yr old.....
