Publisher's Summary

When I was 13, he stole my heart. 

When I was 18, he took my innocence. 

When I was 23, he said he would love me forever. 

When I was 28, he broke my heart. 

Now I'm 33... and there's a knock at the door. He's back, again. And this time he's not alone.

Another back and forth

I was so annoyed from back and forth from past to future. I had a hard time enjoying the story. I kept waiting for the present day. When it does, it was so short that I lost interest after one two hours of listening. I really wanted to like it and tried hard to finish it. I just couldn’t do it! The performance were the best part.

Thought provoking in many good ways...

Narrators can make or break a story. These narrators made it feel as it should! A wonderful read. Don't hesitate, read/listen to this book.

what a great story

this story really touched my heart
the heartache, the struggle. the love that lily and aiden had for each other. that love so pure it got them thru all the heartache, all the struggles. the kind of love that never gives up, a love that is so strong it got them thru even the worst of times
so happy with the way the writers ended their 20 year saga. thank you for this wonderful story of the purest kind of love.

I was pulled into the book.

Parts of this book drove me nuts. the back and forth from the past to present was one. she always caved into him but admittedly said she did in the beginning of the book. what they went through when he came back on her 28th birthday was hard to hear. If you've been one half of the kind of relationship you'll get why. I had no sympathy for Alice at any point in the book. In fact i hated her and still do. love the epilogue!! Overall if I wasn't so invested in the book these things wouldn't have bothered me. The author pulled me in and I saw the characters come to life. far different from most other storyline in other similar genres.

Tried, but missed the mark.

This story tried to be a bittersweet, soulful tale, but it doesn't quite make it there. I don't feel hopeful or sadness for the characters' circumstances, or hope for resolution. It's all sort of a light, fluffy after school special.

I always add a recommendation to my review based on the type of book I'm reviewing,, and I STRONGLY suggest the Tristan and Dannika trilogy. It's very similar to this story, but written with heavier strokes. Darker, grittier true love. It's #2 in my Top 5, and yet I've only read it twice. It's that bitter. It sort of hurts to read, even when I know there's a happy ending coming down the line.

Aiden and Lily

This story spanned over 20 years between Aiden and Lily. There was so much hurt, back and forth, and love between these two. I was not sure if I wanted them together or to stay away from one another. I didn't hate this book, but at the same time I did not love it. It was an interesting story and I wanted to know what would happen.
Laurie Catherine Winkel and Tristan Wright were probably the one thing I did love about this audible, they were fantastic narrators.

Awful!

This story line and writing are ridiculous. It’s completely unbelievable. I felt nothing for either character had they not ended up together in the end it wouldn’t have bothered me at all. I didn’t care for the narrators either.
