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.

I loved this book!

I loved this book because of the characters being able to show us how they were doing. Also them getting what they wanted with each other. It is a good quick read.

Pretty good

Short, but still good. If you’re in the mood for something short with fluffy feelings, this is ideal. And Kenneth Obi’s great narration makes this even better.

Sweet story....

Such a sucker for HEA. I loved this little short story and in the crevices of my soul, I know that Robbie and Troy are still together, breeding parrots. Sweet and loving!

Short and sweet

Obviously this a a short story, but for all that it really is quite nice. While it could be made into a longer book I like that it’s kept short. There is no giant argument or misunderstanding, just two guys who meet after years apart and realize the feelings are still there. The narrator is also good and keeps the voices natural so you can stay in the story.

Short, but good

This was a new author and narrator for me. It was a very short story, but had all of the elements to make it really good. Quick back story, quick catch up, immediate "reheat" after 8 years and returned open feelings. HEA and even though it was short, it didn't feel as if anything was missing from the story or characters.

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. *Borrowed through the AE package.

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.
