Summary

Fifteen years is a long time. Long enough to forget the past, forge ahead, and create a terrific life. Bella Hunt has done exactly that, complete with a successful career, a gaggle of close friends, and a home she loves. Life is good.

Or it was, until her teenage nightmare and the bane of her high school existence shows up for Bella’s class on conflict resolution. 

Easton Evans, in all her pretty, blonde, my-parents-are-surgeons glory, throws Bella into an existential tailspin as her unpleasant memories from her past come screeching back. Easton doesn’t even recognize Bella, and what’s worse, Easton is...different somehow. Softer, kinder. And still unfairly attractive. 

None of it computes in Bella’s head. She’s hated Easton for 15 years, done her best to scrub the past away. But now here it is. The past. Sitting in her classroom and waiting for Bella to teach her how to resolve a conflict of the heart.

Lori Prince’s narration is brilliant

Bittersweet story, well written (as you would expect from Ms. Beers) and of course beautifully narrated.

Never get disappointed by Author or Narrator

This book was fantastic; I never get disappointed by any of Georgia Beers books, as for the narration Lori Prince always does a fantastic job with the voices. The only thing that was slightly disappointing is there was no epilogue at the end, as I would have liked to know more about what happens to the characters, although the ending that was given from this book it could be used to continue the story with a book 2.

Touching

Ostensibly this is just another Georgia Beers love story; however underlying this story is a powerful, (sorta) touching look at teen bullying and the effect on everyone involved. Bella was the victim of high school bullying, Easton was, for the most part a bystander, one of those kids who watches one classmate bully another and does nothing. Thus the bullying at best, continues at the same level, and at the worst escalates. It is also a portrait about the shadow that such treatment creates and the way it echoes through the life on those bullied for years, even decades afterwards. This is the Second Georgia Beers audible selection that I've given five stars, in both cases it was due as much to the subject matter as it is to that particular book.

Sweet story of reconnection

In this story, Bella Hunt is reunited with her high school crush, the girl who used to tease her, though not as much as the school bully. Bella has reinvented herself, and the two women hit it off. The snag here is that Easton doesn't remember Bella from high school at all, and that is the main obstacle to overcome in this book. The stakes feel personal, yes, but also low. It's almost like making a mountain out of a molehill. When they finally do talk about things, it becomes more than just hiding the information in the present. It becomes a reminder of hurts from the past. That's why they need a do-over, as the title tells. If you're wondering about heat levels in this story, there is kissing and a short sex scene. The book doesn't focus on this, and for me, the story holds up. If you need that to enjoy your romances, you may need to look elsewhere. As a reader, I get some of the best enjoyment from interesting side characters. Easton's bestie is hilarious as are Bella's friends Heather and Amy. I would enjoy if the author ever put the two sets of side characters together. Hilarity would definitely ensue from that. I listened to this as an audio performance from Lori Prince, who consistently does good work. In most of the books I have heard from her, she is narrating people in their 20s. I wasn't sure she could do older characters, but she's fine in this. Her voice doesn't sound too young or unbelievable. One of the greatest compliments I can give Prince as a performer is that she makes me enjoy the Southie accent. She has Pat in TB Markinson's Chosen One series and Amy here. They sound different from each other, yet clearly Southie. Because she performs the characters so well, I hear them as characters instead of an accent with no substance. Recommended for readers of lesfic who want a low drama romance. Full disclosure: I voluntarily received a review copy of the audiobook.

Sweet Romance

Thoroughly enjoyed the chemistry between Easton and Bella and their relationships with their respective BFFs was quite believable and helped flesh out their relationship and also Bella and Easton's characters. I didn't understand the need for the Olivia arc in the book and how Easton was made out to be a victim and not one of the very willing and wrong perps but the book's resolution is definitely good enough to pretend that little arc never existed. Sweet romance with a great ending. Lori Prince did a great job with the narration and I hope she narrates the rest of her Beers' books.

Great if you're looking for a feel good book

Bella Hunt is a succesful therapist who has her life together, she has two dogs and some wonderful friend. What else could she want? Not to teach a conflict resolution class to her high school bully/ crush, Easton Evans Easton has just been through a divorce, her seven year old daughter, Emma, who is developing more and more attitude, on top of that her job isn't going well. The last thing she is looking for is love, but maybe it has found her anyway Will Bella have the courage to tell Easton about their shared past? Ok, this one was just good guys. Both our leading ladies get a perspective - which I always like - the secondary characters were lovable. You could totally feel the connection these two had. I just think the reveal came much too late, and I think there could have also been more resolution on that front I think Lori Price narrates very well, she has a good pace, does inflections very well, and makes the characters very distinct

Not for me

This is a typical Georgia beers story. Cutsey, lighthearted, not very much depth in this at all. It left me frustrated because of having to wait until the end when they Easton realizes who Bella is, seems so unnecessary to create this fake angst then. The book was very bland I found myself skipping through some of the dialogue just to get to the parts I was waiting for.

Reunion

Isabella (Izzy) Hunt had a miserable junior and senior year in high school because of bullying. Years after leaving town immediately after graduation she’s Bella Hunt, a therapist at a wellness center. When she’s hired to run a conflict resolution seminar for six managers from the same company. One of them is Easton Evans, the girl she crushed on in high school and one of the bullies. She doesn’t recognize Belle and an attraction begins to grow between them. Marvelous performance and story. Erotic scenes. Recommend.

Amazing!

I can definitely relate to Bella being bullied in highschool and being confused about my sexuality. Aside from that, the story was simply amazing and well crafted. The payoff at the end was incredible. Scarlet Rose

Loved this auto book!

I can honesty say that I have never listened to an auto book that left me so utterly speechless until now. Bullying is such a horrible thing to happen to anyone. This story made me laugh and cry. Thank you Georgia Beers for this heartfelt story. I wish those that bully could learn such a lesson in real life. Thank you Lori Prince for bringing these characters to life, you were wonderful! I highly recommend this book! Leann, Wisconsin USA

2nd chances can color our world in so many ways.

What a most heartwarming do over for love. Awkward at best, confused, not understanding her own feelings, left Easton just a part of the mean kids in high school. Bella was the socially awkward outcast just as confused and lost in her feelings, the brunt of all those bullys. This story gives Easton and Bella to reclaim themselves in a very beautiful way and love in the most sacred. Lori Prince does such a good job giving the tender feelings and growing love a life. She lets you feel with the character all the years of their youth, while the hot, sultry adults share so much more. Another brilliant story from Georgia Beers of redemption and love that never fades.
