Summary

“Careful there, Robbie.” My sweater obscured part of my sight, and my fogged-up glasses managed to take care of the rest of it, but I’d recognize that voice anywhere, even after eight long years. It was deeper now, a bit more gravelly, but it most definitely belonged to the guy I’d spent most of my early teenage years pining after. My first - and unrequited - love.

“Troy?” I exclaimed, blinking my confusion as he helped pull my sweater the rest of the way off. Troy Jacobs' gorgeous lips twitched in amusement. “You remember me. Didn’t know if you would."

“Oh, I remember you,” I mumbled. Hard to forget your first kiss - or the first guy you ever loved.

A 9,600 word short story about first love, second chances, and family.

Lovely short story

Just over an hour of Troy and Robbie. Troy is Robbie's first kiss when he is 14 yrs old, then Troy moves away. Many years later Robbie is coming home for Christmas and Troy is there as he is trying to get over the death of his father. They pick up where they left and it's sweet

Sweet Christmas story

I thought it was a sweet story and I liked how they met again a little older and wiser. Perfect little read before Christmas.

Good short listen

This is the perfect book if your looking for a quick listen with a sweet HEA ending.

The only complaint I have is that it was to short and felt rushed as though the author wasn’t allowed to go over a certain number of words.

Both characters were sweet and met when they were young and shared a first kiss, forward 8 years and they meet up again. Kenneth’s narration was on point and brought the characters to life more then the book did, his female characters were really good in this one and sounded female rather then a rough female that some other male narrators do.

Overall would I listen to this again, yes I would as although it felt to short it was still a really good book that will be good for paperwork days at work or doing the housework

Cute, fast listen

OK this was super cute and sweet. I enjoyed it a lot. It was really quick and my only complaint was that it felt a little like a prologue. I know novellas are supposed to be quick but the ending on this one felt just a little cut off. But It really was a sweet story and I enjoyed it.

A sweet second chance story

This is a very short but sweet story about first love, second chances and an allover feel-good romance. The narration is good and Kenneth Obi has a very calming voice that makes listening to stories such a good experience.

Sweet and short!

This was a really cute, sweet , second-chance holiday love story. A little feels thrown in with the sweet and it made for an enjoyable, quick listen.
I feel like if I say much more this review will be as long as the audio!
My first listen with Kenneth Obi as the narrator- I'll be looking into more of his books.

sweet and sexy

I really enjoyed this story. It was short, but the author did a great job building an emotional connection and sexual tension between the main characters. I really enjoyed going along with Robbie and Troy as they reconnected in this second- chance, friends to lovers story. Also enjoyed the narration.

Suprisingly Good Find!

I was browsing for a short holiday story and was surprised to find this author. I was surprised to find the story was set in Hawaii which was unusual. However, it did not distract from the story and being from Hawaii myself I found the family relationships very believable. A short story of a long time crush turning into something more, the story moved quickly and was thoroughly enjoyable. My biggest complainant was the age difference between the main characters and the fact they were so young when they first met. But that's just a personal preference thing.

Adorable

Very cute. Second chance romance with a bit more. Even though it was short, it was well written and the characters spoke to me.

Short and Sweet

Just a nice little feel good, fulfilling M/M story. I prefer dual POV usually, but it did work to have only one POV for this short story. I recommend:)

Short but sweet!

This short story introduces us to Troy and Robbie as boys and best friends. They are each others first loves but neither said a word to the other at that age. Troy’s family moved away, but when he moves back several years later it gives the two chance a second chance to tell each other how they feel. Short and sweet!

Sweet

Really enjoyed this short little romance by Crystal Lacy! I had not previously read this one and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it just because I don't normally enjoy many short stories due to them not having fully fleshed out characters sometimes. I am happy this was not the case here and really liked it! Kenneth Obi also did a super nice job narrating this one!

Sweet moment in time

Remembering You was a sweet short story (only about an hour's listen - or less if you speed the narration up). It all starts eight years ago with a game of truth or dare between Robbie and his step-cousin Troy. A game that would lead to a first kiss. A first kiss that would linger in their memories for a long time to come. It would only be a memory as Troy and his dad up and left the day after never to return again. Until now, when Troy's dad recently passed and Troy needing his family. Feelings are still there for them both and it's not long before there's a new first kiss - and one that doesn't stop there.

This was a sweet and uncomplicated story about second chances and finding the right time and the right place to start something. There wasn't much going on, as we were only with them for a moment, the moment where their lives changed. I can't say that the story evoked many emotions in me - short stories rarely do, there's just not much time or space for it. However, I did enjoy it all the same. Kenneth Obi delivered a straight forward narration of this book, with voices and feelings to match and made the listen a good one.
