Publisher's Summary

Band Geek vs. Quarterback....

One humiliating photo, a stupid prank, and a hashtag that goes viral. That's how my senior year goes from predictable to absurd in a heartbeat. This year is supposed to be easy. I've finally scored first chair in band, my college applications are done, and all my friends and I have to do is survive one more year of high school before our real lives can begin. Instead, I find myself in trouble with the principal, humiliated in front of the entire school, and fighting with my neighbor - AKA star quarterback, Prince Charming, and nicest guy on the planet. 

And that's just on the first day back at school. Trust me, it only gets worse from there. As #GeeksGoneWild trends on social media, my friends and I are the targets of an online witch hunt. But they've picked on the wrong people and retaliation is severe. As the tension escalates, it soon becomes clear that someone needs to step up and put an end to this nonsense. If that means playing nice with the quarterback, I guess that's what I have to do. Now if someone could please tell my heart that this new friendship is just for show. And the kisses...oh, the kisses. Someone please remind me that they don't mean a thing.

Fabulous!!!!

Even though I am in my late 20's, I related so much to this story! Margo was me in high school, first chair clarinet, total band geek and proud, not interacting much with the popular kids. I felt to a large degree I was Margo while listening. I also enjoyed Jason the quarterback. We did not have a football team, so I could not relate fully, but I did enjoy these two characters and their interactions with each other! I cannot wait to listen to more in this series! I also think I have found a new favourite YA Contemporary authour!

I loved the male/female narration! I always ffind that it adds so much to sharing the story with listeners. Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtell both have very, very clear voices and both did a fabulous job with voices and emotion! I would easily listen to either of them again!

I loved this story so much and it will be enjoyed and listed several more times.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request, and I have voluntarily left this review.

Geeks vs jocks and finding love

This is a coming of age story where we see how high school students manage the whole geek versus jock that we all go through in school. Either you are part of the geek crowd or the jocks and cheerleaders. In this case our Margo is definitely in the geek squad and her love from afar is the quarterback of the football team. Jason is not only the head jock but he is also nice and when things get heated between the two groups he must decide who he wants to stand with. This book shows us that there are always two sides to the story and even though typically the geeks get picked on they can also dish it out so one wrong can turn into two wrongs and hopefully people will grow in the process.

Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtell were the narrators of this book and they did a great job. I enjoyed listening to them.

Fun read

This was a fun, fairly lighthearted story. It does deal with the issue of not fitting in and being part of that popular crowd but also of knowing who you are and being okay with that. Margo had a close set of friends so she didn’t have that problem but some of the other popular kids were jerks and started crap with the geeks. I loved the interplay between characters as they dealt with what was going on. Neither Margo nor Jason agreed with what was happening and didn’t want it to continue to escalate so they started working together to try and find peace for the school. The narrators were great! You could hear the emotion in their voice as they dealt with things and when talking to each other. It really brought the story to life and added that extra dynamic. This wasn’t the best read for me as some things just took longer than I thought they would for the length of the story. I wish that we had gotten more direct interaction between Margo and Jason but still a good and entertaining read. Will be continuing the series for sure.

Too much swearing

What I wanna know is, WHO submitted that picture?!

I love how things happen because of accidents. Whoever swapped the photos set in motion a chain of events that lead to two estranged childhood friends (the boy and the girl next door) to re-connect after a few years of cordiality from a distance. Oh, to be a teenager again, with all the high school angst and drama!

I'm really glad that the most popular people weren't actually the mean ones. This is a nice change from the usual dark romances I love to read about with the rich, alpha jerks and their innocent, pretty outcasts. We get to hear both Jason's and Margo's point of views; it's so sweet when he realizes he's falling for the band geek! Shout out goes to Luke for being the star of every scene he's in. I'm elated to discover that he's featured in the next book!

But I digress... if you're in the mood for some clean, heart-warming YA romance, you're always in good hands with a Maggie Dallen story! The narrators did a great job too. Lauren even sounded like one of my other favourite narrators: Tavia Gilbert. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

What's not to love

I’ll admit that I read this series out of order and ended up starting with book 3. You can read them as stand-alone novels, but the characters overlap so if you’re planning on reading all three (as you should) I recommend starting with book 1. As always Maggie Dallen has created a fantastic YA romance with witty characters and an engaging story. Also, If I haven’t said it enough in some of my other reviews any book narrated by Lauren Fortgang is bound to be a good one. Shout out to Michael Axtell for some great narration as well. It was my first time listening to him as a narrator and I was very impressed.

Best Friends as Kids

Love at First Fight by Maggie Dallen is such a sweet and charming story. I love it when Best Friends as Kids rekindle that special relationship. The characters of Margo and Jason really appealed to me. Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtell were great bringing the book to life. Thank you Audiobook Obsession for this recommendation.

Sweet and lovely and funny with great narration.

Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtell really became the characters they narrated. I thoroughly enjoyed both of their narration, it made listening a real pleasure.

I love this story, it's on the sweeter side of things and is somehow just really charming. I'm not really sure how the title fits the story as I don't think they ever really fight? Apart from that I just loved it. I could see all the characters around me as I listened and I enjoyed watching them as they worked their way through the book. I'm looking forward to spending more time in their world.

Love at first fight

I love the set up of this whole book it was really entertaining especially for being a high school/young adult romance. It was very true to what high school kids deal with on a daily basis. The performance by Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtel was very well done and a pleasure to listen to.

Better than I expected

I always appreciate having more than one narrator in books with a dual POV. Lauren Fortgang and Michael David Axtell did a great job.

As far as the story, I'm usually really disappointed with stories that involve bullying. I was really impressed that the characters in Love at First Fight brought up options other than revenge to deal with the bullying situation. Also, from the title, I expected the main characters to be fighting with each other, and I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't the case. Overall, I'm really interested in listening to the next in the series.

🎧Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

Love the title of this series Geeks Gone Wild. This story deals with cyber bullying, a childhood friendship that dwindled as two young people grew about, caused a deep-seated wound and misunderstood feelings. Loved how the author deals with this issue, and heals these two characters.
Lauren and Michael David did a fantastic job bringing these characters to life.
