Summary

Spending 18 summers at my Nana’s farm has been the highlight of my life. Learning how to work everything has taken many summers of trial and error, but it’s a passion. Doesn’t hurt that the Peak Farm adjoins hers, and their oldest son is just a few years older than me. He’s always helped me learn to do everything, including climbing trees and how to swim.

Nana is convinced we are star-crossed lovers, but he treats me as one of the boys. No one in either family - Wilkin or the Peak - has ever fallen for each other in hundreds of years that the farms have been in the families. Now, I’m not saying I’d kick Jerrie Peak out of my bed.

Will my path lead me to be a city lady like my mom, or will it lead me back to my family roots? Are we star crossed-lovers who haven’t slowed down enough to truly see each other?

The summer of my 18th birthday is going to bring many changes to my life.

Easy listening

I enjoyed listening to the audio version of this story. It is a story of a girl who goes back to her grans farm every summer and tells her love story. The characters are likeable. The story was very pleasant and easy to listen to. The narrator was good too. I would recommend this 👍🏻

Lovely

This was a lovely story, the characters were wonderful, I felt sad for both couples, but all’s well that ends well.
The story was full of need and plus love, it was a typical love story and was well put together, I loved it.
The narration was excellent, very well read and a pleasant voice.

City girl meets country boy

This is a summer love romance between the city girl and the country guy whose five years older than her. Kimberly is the eighteen year old city girl who has spent ever summer hangin’ out at her Nana’s farm. This year it’s different because she’s eighteen and old enough for Jerrie to take notice of her. Jerrie and Kim are friends but he has no idea she’s had a crush on him for years. Jerrie was the guy who would take off to spend time with other girls leaving Kim broken-hearted.
This summer is bound to be different than all the rest. Kim has an agenda and it begins with flirting, taunting, and teasing Jerry. Kim is determined to make this summer one Jerrie will never forget. Someone needs to move their friendship into more.
This short story packs a punch offering multiple layers of age-gap, arranged marriage, push n’ pull, city-girl versus country-guy, friends to lovers, and star-crossed lovers themes.
Kim’s character acts blasé towards Jerry’s motives. Her juvenile antics were annoying to listen to. I was disappointed by her behavior given Jerrie taught her how to manage the farm, yet her actions say otherwise.
This is short summer country romance. It’s a cheesy story that gives off that high school vibe. Kim’s character was far too immature, naive, and clueless. I couldn’t relate to her or understand her wishy washy ways. Her character was annoying and too young for my liking. I prefer strong independent women who have a better understanding of what they want and take charge of their lives.

Narrator:
Danielle Jacobs is a professional voice actor and is the solo performer of this short country romance. Danielle has a sweet southern voice suitable for Kim’s character.
I listened at 1.7 speed. Total listening time 2 hours 37 minutes. Included are 24 chapters and an epilogue. There’s a slight sound disturbance in the audiobook. This is an unabridged copy narrated in English.
I would’ve loved a nice southern country narrator to perform Jerrie’s character. Danielle is a good performer for female voices, but not great for a country guy. It took away from the listening experience.
This wasn’t my favorite type of read. That’s no fault of Danielle’s performance. This one of those times when a wish the performance exceeded the writing. Unfortunately, both the writing and performance was okay. It’s an easy listen with a happily ever after ending.

Quick, light read.

This is exactly what I needed. Reader was easy to listen to. Light, sweet, and something to just escape into for a few hours. Nothing complicated or heavy about this... just a simple story. Yes, the young characters make you want to yell some common sense into them sometimes, but so does my daughter... so there you have it, lol.

Definitely for young adults.

I can see how this may be too young for some demographics, but I found it a sweet, romantic, young spirited story. The characters are realistically flawed (appropriate for their ages), and the narration was right on target. If teen and young adult antics annoy you, then this isn't for you. But if you'd like to peek in on realistic young love... this will be a fun little adventure.

Not my cup o’ tea

While I didn’t find the narration enjoyable the story itself was not also not something that I would normally take internet in. It would probably be great for younger readers.

Quick Listen

This is my second book I have listened to by Susan Meachen. I loved this one too!

I enjoyed the character development and their story. It was another quick listen.

I am starting my next book by Meachen now.

Wake up and grow up kim

From the grave nana tries to manipulate Kim and Jerry. All the competition for Jerry was ridiculous . Was he the last man on earth?? Kim's mom disgusted me totally and thoroughly. If they really didn't plan to stay together after one year, why no birth control???? smh?!! I stand by
"marry your best friend ". It's a great foundation. Kim needed a good throat punch most of the book. Her immaturity was really showing and it wasn't pretty. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator was good.
