Summary

Band Geek vs. Quarterback....

One humiliating photo, a stupid prank, and a hashtag that goes viral. That's how my senior year goes from predictable to absurd in a heartbeat. This year is supposed to be easy. I've finally scored first chair in band, my college applications are done, and all my friends and I have to do is survive one more year of high school before our real lives can begin. Instead, I find myself in trouble with the principal, humiliated in front of the entire school, and fighting with my neighbor - AKA star quarterback, Prince Charming, and nicest guy on the planet. 

And that's just on the first day back at school. Trust me, it only gets worse from there. As #GeeksGoneWild trends on social media, my friends and I are the targets of an online witch hunt. But they've picked on the wrong people and retaliation is severe. As the tension escalates, it soon becomes clear that someone needs to step up and put an end to this nonsense. If that means playing nice with the quarterback, I guess that's what I have to do. Now if someone could please tell my heart that this new friendship is just for show. And the kisses...oh, the kisses. Someone please remind me that they don't mean a thing.

Thoroughly enjoyable

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is definitely worth listening to. It does approach aspects of cyber bullying and how easily and quickly it can escalate.

Sweet and lovely and funny with great narration.

Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtell really became the characters they narrated. I thoroughly enjoyed both of their narration, it made listening a real pleasure.

I love this story, it's on the sweeter side of things and is somehow just really charming. I'm not really sure how the title fits the story as I don't think they ever really fight? Apart from that I just loved it. I could see all the characters around me as I listened and I enjoyed watching them as they worked their way through the book. I'm looking forward to spending more time in their world.

Love at first fight

I love the set up of this whole book it was really entertaining especially for being a high school/young adult romance. It was very true to what high school kids deal with on a daily basis. The performance by Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtel was very well done and a pleasure to listen to.

Better than I expected

I always appreciate having more than one narrator in books with a dual POV. Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtell did a great job.

As far as the story, I'm usually really disappointed with stories that involve bullying. I was really impressed that the characters in Love at First Fight brought up options other than revenge to deal with the bullying situation. Also, from the title, I expected the main characters to be fighting with each other, and I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't the case. Overall, I'm really interested in listening to the next in the series.

🎧Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

Love the title of this series Geeks Gone Wild. This story deals with cyber bullying, a childhood friendship that dwindled as two young people grew about, caused a deep-seated wound and misunderstood feelings. Loved how the author deals with this issue, and heals these two characters.
Lauren and Michael David did a fantastic job bringing these characters to life.

A good feel good audiobook

The first in the Geeks Gone Wild Series by Maggie Dallen who I have the pleasure to read other books from her and thoroughly enjoyed so I expected this to be funny and good too. I was not disappointed. This was cute and fluffy with a HEA.
This particular book focuses on Margo and Jason, neighbours who used to be friends but as they grew, their friendship dwindled, they are in the last year of high school Margo is the band geek whereas Jason is the popular quarterback. The unlikely duo comes together when Margo and her friends are being witch-hunted online from school peers.
Both characters are likeable, the storyline is okay but predictable and I feel like I have seen a lot of movies with this kind of storyline, but it works and is a clean YA novel that gives you the feel-good factor.

Jason and Margo!

Maggie Dallen always comes through for me when I need something fun, flirty and just enjoyable. This high school based story features Jason and Margo. Neighbors forever, and friends when children, these two drift apart as they go their separate paths into high school. Margo the band geek and Jason the football player just do not run in the same circles. But when Margo's integrity is thrown into the ring, things begin to change. Will Jason stand up for her and let her know his attraction? Will Margo give in to her childhood crush? Can their worlds live together? Oh how this hits home. Me being the band geek always had my eyes on those in uniform while playing in marching band. The untouchables. This captured that time, of not fitting in their world, loving from afar but this has an update using social media. I love Dallen's twists and turns in Margo and Jason's relationship, and the entire way life is handled. It's true to life and a great listen.

Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtell find that sound that fits these high school characters. There are quite a few with friends and players, and each one was created perfectly, just as I would imagine friends and enemies speaking. Fortgang has a great voice for this age, her young sound captures the innocence of the teens and Axtell has that cocky, yet vulnerable edge for Jason. I enjoyed their dual narration.

Love at First Fight

Love at First Fight is a sweet high school romance between a geek and a jock. Margo is so likable and relatable especially to anyone who wasn't one of the popular kids in high school. Jason is an all around nice guy and the star quarterback. Their story is interesting but it's not without its share of drama. I recommend this story to anyone looking for a nice, clean high school romance. Both Lauren and Michael did a great job bringing this story to life.

Fabulous!!!!

Even though I am in my late 20's, I related so much to this story! Margo was me in high school, first chair clarinet, total band geek and proud, not interacting much with the popular kids. I felt to a large degree I was Margo while listening. I also enjoyed Jason the quarterback. We did not have a football team, so I could not relate fully, but I did enjoy these two characters and their interactions with each other! I cannot wait to listen to more in this series! I also think I have found a new favourite YA Contemporary authour!

I loved the male/female narration! I always ffind that it adds so much to sharing the story with listeners. Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtell both have very, very clear voices and both did a fabulous job with voices and emotion! I would easily listen to either of them again!

I loved this story so much and it will be enjoyed and listed several more times.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request, and I have voluntarily left this review.

I Adorably loved this cute story!!!

I Adorably loved this cute story!!! The story was captivating from beginning to end. Love it when characters are somewhat deny their feelings but the chemistry is there and they give up towards the end. All that fighting for nothing. Lol... I can honestly recommend this book and I can’t wait to get the next book.

Great beginning to a series

This book really brings you into this series. It’s a friend to enemies to friends to lovers story. Your tropical YA without sex, or drugs, or bad language. Enjoyable read.

Loved the dual narrative. I always enjoy a male narrator. His voice reminded me of Chris Pine, both of whom have nice tones and inflictions. Enjoyed listening

Another fun YA series from Maggie Dallen!

I always look forward to Dallen's YA books because they're consistently well written and engaging stories, this one is no exception. While the plot's not entirely original, it's still appealing, witty and entertaining. Can't wait to hear Suzie and Luke's story next

*Clean romance level: passionate kissing
*Language: minimal use of some minor swear words
*Religion: use of the Lord's Name in vain, sadly & unnecessarily, though at least without cursing

[The 2 narrators, alternating as the hero and heroine's narrative voices for their respective chapters, do a great job making the reading sound natural and distinguishing the various characters' voices for listeners]

Sharp YA story

I’m not usually a NA or YA listener however this series intrigued me and I’m glad I took the risk. The writing is smart and the chemistry between the characters is fantastic.
Narration between Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtell was natural with the right amount of teen edge. Looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.
