reservation of the heart

slow burn with age gap which was shown in beginning and not really thereafter. as they say to love someone u have to lobe yourself first and then u have to learn to be open and trust. that was learnt by the main characters. great listen to the narrator interpretation of the voices of the characters

Another cracker of a story from T.B.

I have not had an iffy story by T.B. and this in conjunction with the excellent performance by Lori Prince is no exception.

Fabulous Romantic Story !

This was a great story. The Characters were believable and so well matched. Ms Prince narration brought them to life in a warm and touching way. This was the first book of Ms Markinsons I've read, but wont be the last.! I totally enjoyed it !!

I would read this book multiple times

Started off slow so wasn’t happy at first. But I gave it a shot and I’m glad i kept going. The two characters developed a close relationship overtime and had great sex scenes. And the narrator is the best. Any book Lori Prince narrates is made that much better because of her. I will definitely listen to this book 4-5 more times.

The book was good overall. I just couldn’t get passed Allison and her non sense jealousy of a over 10 yrs ago HS crush. Just utter non sense. But then again lol

Great Book to own

I only had one issue, there was way to much F bombs used. I felt it made the MC seem immature. With that said, the book is amazing, very lovable characters, Lori Prince did a wonderful job bring everyone to life. If your looking for good friend to lover book this is it.( mature content through out the book.)
