Publisher's Summary

She needs to move on. He wants to let her go. Will they finally be able to go their separate ways even though their hearts seem to have other plans?

Elizabeth Ashburn is madly, deeply, irrefutably in love with her best friend. They know each other better than their own minds. There is only one problem: To him, she is Little Lizzie, and nothing she does seems to replace the idea in his mind. No matter. It is her first Season and she is determined to make a match with a gentleman - any gentleman - who will help her steal her heart back from Oliver Turner and his sea-blue eyes.

Oliver Turner can remember the exact day that Lizzie grew up. And now, he cannot see her as anything besides the beautiful woman stealing his breath - no matter how much he needs to. He won't marry her. He can't. He loves her too much for that. Now, he simply needs to help marry her off so that she will officially be out of his reach.

No real plot or obstacles to romance, just angst

This is a solidly written book with very appealing characters, but sadly the storyline is lacking. He and she are made for each other, they both know it, everybody knows it. We just have to wait the full length of a novel for one of them to overcome angst and self loathing. It’s a shame, this pair deserved a rollicking adventure instead! Honestly it would have been more in character for her to have staged her own kidnapping or such to get him to declare himself. Instead we just get chapters full of agonizing over why they can’t admit their feelings.

Sweet love story

This was such a sweet story of how love and friendship can conquer any darkness in someone’s life. My heart broke for the sadness in Ollies relationship with his father but love message of this story that true and pure love conquers all.

Sweet and clean

I enjoyed this! The only two negatives were the rushed ending (I hate those) and the way the author “told” and didn’t show them falling in love the first half of the book. The second half was better. The narrator was pretty good. I listened at 1.2 speed b/c anything less was too slow.

Could have been better

I listened to the first book which was pretty good. This one is way too long and frustrating. Elizabeth and Oliver are sweet
together but…. Spoiler alert! I just kept waiting and waiting for them to get together and thinking, “come on already!!!”. And the reason they weren’t together was idiotic. And it just dragged on and on.

Delightfully and frustratingly Romantic

There are two things I disliked about this experience. First was the audio. It was painstakingly slow and droll. When I sped it up to 1.2x it helped immensely! And the story was well worth the effort.
The second thing I disliked was I felt like the author rushed the kissing scenes and missed an opportunity to do them justice by not giving Oliver a voice I’m those moments. I also felt it was missing an epilogue.

As for the story itself, it held some deep emotions that may trigger readers who are products of abusive parental relationships. Oliver’s background made him 3 dimensional—something that is often missing in main characters of romance novels. The story itself is well-written and the characters are relatable and lovable. Once I was well into the story, I could not put it down.

The narrator needs to speed up!

Good story. Good writing. But I returned another book with this narrator bc her slow voice is annoying. Improve the performance and you’ll get more listeners. 😊
