Publisher's Summary

Allie

When I moved to River’s Edge, dating was the last thing on my mind.
I definitely didn’t expect to fall for him.
Jesse Shepherd.
Popular. Star athlete. Cocky as hell.
You know the type.
But as time passed, I realized there was more lurking beneath that gorgeous exterior.
Secretive. Angry. A little bit broken.
The more I peeled back his layers, the deeper I fell.
Until I slammed headfirst into his sea of lies.

Jess

I blew my shot.
Pissed everything away - college, lacrosse, my future - only to end up right back where I started in River’s Edge.
I was content to revel in my misery, spending my days drowning in a bottomless pit of booze and girls.
Until I saw her.
Allison Parrish.
Beautiful. Sarcastic. Perpetual bad attitude.
The pretty little distraction from the shit show that was my life.
But the sins of my past were closing in on me, and I learned the hard way that nothing gold can stay.

Bad boy good girl romance

Really enjoyed this audiobook. Jessie and Allie are both sympathetic characters and their chemistry makes sense and feels real. There’s no cheating despite Jessie’s playboy rep. Allie is likable and admirable. Both have to overcome poor parenting. There’s some slow burn despite their attraction and I liked how it built up to sex after they had made a real connection and had a relationship. This is a new adult college story. Allie is in school and working at a bar managed by Jessie’s sister, who takes her in after Allie becomes homeless. Jessie then begins hanging around and pursues her. There are secrets on both sides, which lead to drama and angst. I really enjoyed the resolution and HEA. The narrators mostly did a great job, but I didn’t like how the female narrator did make voices. That’s the only thing I would change.

Love these cocky men!

While Jesse might have been cocky but he was crazy sweet too! Once he fell for Allie, he was just done. I loved the sexual tension and the incredible chemistry between them. Miss Rose writes an amazing story! Aaron Shedlock and Rachel Butera were amazing as Jesse and Allie. Shedlock has this nice strong voice and it just worked hand in hand with Jesse. Butera was a fabulous Allie as well. She has a sweet but strong voice. I enjoyed listening to them both!

Good story

Rachel’s narration was not great, I’ve heard Aaron narrate other books and he’s alright. I liked the story, just wish female narration was better.

Amazing story, awful narration

I LOVE this book, I’ve read it multiple times and I never get tired of it. Jess & Ally are awesome and I love their story. I recommend reading it even if you hated the audible version, I promise it’s better that way.

These narrators? The male narrator wasn’t awful, he kinda made me cringe when he was trying to be all sexy….especially the sex scenes. But the female narrator? I could live with never having to hear a book she narrates again. Her voice reminds me of what girls do when they are trying to be fake cute around boys, it doesn’t sound natural and she has no idea how to show the emotion behind the words. If something is said in anger, it was said in this baby type voice…..when she did try to put some anger into her words she just sounded like a brat. I was kinda embarrassed for her…….and her Jess voice? My God, she made him into the worst version of a douchebag…..pretty much any male she did an awful job on. Older males sounded young, younger guys sounded older. She just ruined this.

amazing

found this via TikTok and I loved it. I'm so glad a splurged a little just to hear this story. it's been so amazing. thank you for writing this. so many good moments in this book made me flash to moments in my current relationship where things are similar or happened almost exactly the same. I wish there would've been a little bit more to that last chapter to really cement the happy ending but I can also admire the fact that the author chose to let both characters speak in the final chapter.

Terrible Female Narrator

I absolutely love this series and author. But this female narrator almost ruined it for me. I can normally get passed someone’s voice if I don’t immediately like them but she SUCKS at voicing Jess and other characters. She sounds like a child imitating someone they’re making fun of. She almost ruined this book for me.

Female narrator can’t do male voice and shallow story

The plot was kinda shallow, but it was entertaining enough. Not as good as the other books, maybe because of the female narrator. Her male voice sounds like the voice you would make when you are trying to imitate a douchebag. Really. Bad. Even the other females had awfully deep, unattractive voices. Good luck!

Male NARRATOR

Why don’t they keep the same narrators? I see rating about how they can’t with the female narrator ... Honestly, I can’t deal with the Male narrator.
