Publisher's Summary

After a decade of silence, Dee and Ben reunite for a road trip they once promised to take. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Dee Matthews is the cohost of the smash-hit podcast Did I Forget to Tell You?, where she interviews family, friends, and past lovers. Nothing is off-limits, except for one man (known on the show only as Name Redacted) who happens to be her high school best friend Ben. During their senior year spring break, Dee and Ben took a road trip to visit Ben’s grandma. They buried a time capsule in her backyard, pledging to return in 10 years to open it. Then their friendship fell apart in spectacular fashion. They haven’t spoken to each other since.

Ben Porter’s life since that moment has been unexciting but comfortable, until his grandma reveals a family secret that flips his whole world upside down. Her dying wish is for him to stop doing what is safest and go after what he really wants. He starts by showing up on Dee’s doorstep with every intention of fulfilling their long-ago promise. Despite her reservations, Dee can’t say no. This trip could be her chance to give her listeners the Name Redacted interview they’ve been begging for - and finally put her unresolved feelings for Ben to rest.

As the miles fly by, Dee and Ben's friendship reignites. But the closer they get to reaching their destination, the more apparent it becomes that their attraction to each other cannot be ignored. Their last adventure ended in disaster, and they’re about to find out if any hope of a future together is in the rearview mirror.

Promising premise but mostly silly story

Like the other reviewer said, my biggest complaint is the Ben narrator. He did not sound like a 28 year old guy, and that took me out of the story every time. The Dee narrator on the other hand was awesome, she elevated the story with her narration.
As far as the story goes, it started off strong, but the middle was boring and the end was so silly. The conflict was dumb and easily resolved with one conversation, so the author made up more silly reasons to keep them apart just to predictably have them reunite at the end. The ending was set like a forgettable rom-com movie, as if the author was thinking that it was going to be made into a movie.
All in all, I’m sorry that I wasted my monthly credit on this book.

Male narrator is big yikes.

I wish audible would let you hear ALL of the narrators voices before you buy. The female narrator is amazing, but the main male voice is so unfitting for the part. It feels like my dad is reading to me. So cringy, I couldn’t finish.
