Summary

Joel is afraid of the future. 

Since he was a child he's been haunted by dreams about the people he loves. Visions of what's going to happen - the good and the bad. And the only way to prevent them is to never let anyone close to him again. 

Callie can't let go of the past. 

Since her best friend died, Callie's been lost. She knows she needs to be more spontaneous and live a bigger life. She just doesn't know how to find a way back to the person who used to have those dreams. 

Joel and Callie both need a reason to start living for today. 

And though they're not looking for each other, from the moment they meet it feels like the start of something life-changing. 

Until Joel has a vision of how it's going to end....

A beautiful story

Loved this. Reminds us to live life in the moment. Take every moment in. I like the way this was presented with the two main characters describing their lives before, during and after each other alternately at each step. An enjoyable listen.

Stick with it - trust me

yes the voices are slightly irritating, yes, there's a few wtf are you doing moments, yes Callie and Josh are a bit wet, but the fact I remember their names is the first clue this is actually quite a special book.

I listen to 100's of books and I can honestly say this is one of few that not only made me shout out loud at them but also reduced me to a flood of tears.

The first 2 parts may feel fluffy and non directional but actually what they are doing is weaving a love story between us and them.


SPOILER

yes one of the characters dies but I truely grieved for then for a good couple of hours after.

Disclaimer- I was also a bottle of wine down, but to be honest, I am probably quite a few sheets to the wind whenever I complete a book nowadays.

Wow, an amazing story and perfect narrator's!

I can not stop thinking about this story and characters. I have not felt this emotionally invested in a story for such a long time. This was heart squeezingly emotional. what a unique story line. Not going to spoil it but this is a must listen. Tears spilled more than once. I think the narrator's have done an amazing job, I feel like I know Joel and Cally and i was on every single step of their journey with them. I would give this more stars if I could!

Great story

I loved the idea of this story & the easy it was told from a dual point of view. I was dreading the ending.

Mills and Boon

I couldn't finish this book. I've never read a Mills and Boon book, but if I had, I would imagine it to read like this book does.
There are endless references to swooning visceral reactions and thoughts about being kissed and held. Sugary comments about the colour of hair and people's eyes.
I got up to Chapter 6 with not much having happened. So slow moving.
I just couldn't read anymore.

slow stater

To predicable

Got so bored with this - hate sickly romance books, but this is just my opinion. Readers who like this type of genre will probably enjoy it more.

A bittersweet story

Joel dreams the future of those he loves so he ensures he never falls in love; until he meets Callie. His perfect romance is tested due to a single dream that Joel has which threatens Callie. What would you do to ensure the happiness of the people you love. Great narration, strong characters and a story that is unique. Well worth reading.
