Publisher's Summary

Poppy Maysen carries a journal in her purse. Its pages were filled long ago by a man who craved adventure, lived life to the fullest, and never failed to make her laugh. The journal is his birthday list - one she vows to complete.

She'll do the things he wanted to do most. Because maybe, just maybe, if she can finish his list, she can start to live again. 

Poppy expects going through the birthday list will be hard. She expects it to hurt. But what she doesn't expect is Cole. Could the man who watched her heart shatter be the one to put it back together again?

I really enjoyed this book. It was very emotional. Poppy is a very strong women who is trying to find her way forward. Cole is a cop who was there for the worst moment in Poppy's life, now 5 years later they meet again. I loved that this book was mature, low on useless drama and even though it was emotionally hard, it was still fun and sweet too! I'm jumping right into book 2!

The narration was good with DUAL POV narration.

Her best

Her best book as far as I'm am concerned. Narration could have been a bit better on the males narration piece, at times it felt like he was narrating "American Justice".

Despite the underlying sadness felt throughout the book it was surprisingly sweet and funny. You feel Poppy's heartbreak and her struggle as she battles with herself. Cole was absolute perfection! He was determined and I love that he was also understanding. I enjoyed listening to Jamie's lost each chapter. I have to say I shed some tears throughout but for some reason the truck is what really got me. I fell for all the characters and I would totally be friends with all of them.

Narration was great! Melissa did an amazing job voicing the kids.

Great story!

Loved the storyline and characters. The ONLY negative thing I can say is the male narrator’s pace was so slow I sometimes had to increase the speed a little during his parts. But other than that it’s phenomenal!

Slow Burn Feel!

I love this author and this book did not let me down. I loved the build up of the relationship, however there were moments when the h drove me a little crazy. This was such a sweet love story and the side characters were great. The narration was spot on and I enjoyed the performance. Don't pass this one up!!!!

An absolutely beautiful love story!

What a beautiful love story, with personal growth, personal forgiveness…not only with main characters, but with the side characters also.

I read the Tin Gypsy series from the author, which was full of love stories and life changes. But as much as I adored that series I hadn’t read anything else from Perry. Then my friend, Siobhan, and I decided to read this book, and I am so glad we did! There’s even a second book in this duology, and it’s about a couple of the side characters. I’m so excited to dive in to it for another buddy read.

The narrators were amazing and brought the story to life. They made me laugh and cry. Good narrators bring so much to a story.

Bland, nice story; Terrible male narrator

This book is ok if you like a soft, slow burn story without much angst, drama or steam. It’s a nice story. The author did a fine job. It’s just too bland for me.
The narration was ok.
Melissa Moran did a very good job. 5 ⭐️
Jeremy York is very robotic, monotonous and slow. He would be perfect for a crime documentary or a Dragnet revival. He is definitely not a good fit for romance. 2 ⭐️
Overall, if this is on sale and sweet, low-drama books are your jam, this is a good book for you. I wouldn’t recommend blowing a credit on it.
