Publisher's Summary

It only takes one night - one moment, one small snippet of time - to change everything. At 16-years-old, Sebastian Baxter taught me that. He taught me a lot of things. He never had to work for my heart. In some unexplainable way, I think it had always belonged to him anyway.

We spent years loving each other, hurting each other, trying to forget each other, but no matter how hard I tried, I could never erase the memory of him. His eyes, his smile, his touch - these are all things that are embedded in my brain, tattooed on my skin, and etched into my heart.

Some might think our love story is over, but deep down I know it's only just beginning. Because it's not about where the night begins, it's about where it ends.

Young Love

Where the Night Ends is a romance that spans over time. It stars with a chance encounter on a balcony at a party and turns into two young people falling head over heels in love. This was really sweet to read and see how they become close, fall in love, share special moments together. Like all good things they come to an end. With Sebastian and Tessa having differing images of their futures they walk their separate paths and live life, grow up, go to college. Over time they still run into each other and are still completely in love, but the timing is never right. The author did such an excellent job with this romance. I felt everything these characters were and I was rooting for them the entire time. I really liked the narrator and the only reason I ranked it 4 stars is because of the male pov. I really wish a male would've done Sebastian because Sarah Puckett doing it seriously confuses and makes me thing I'm still listening to Tessa.

A little angsty and a lot high school.

This book really should be a YA genre due to the fact the 85% is during high school years. Its only the last 2 hours that you enter the college years. But other than that it was an easy listen. Would have enjoyed it more had there been a male and female narrator.

Beautiful!!

This is a wonderful story of a love that grows through the years. It starts growing when Tess and Sebastian were young and obstacles that seemed to be insurmountable stood in the way of a powerful and beautiful love. But every time they saw each other throughout the years they discovered that it only continued to grow. Now when all the obstacles are gone, will they finally be able to go all in? Or will fear keep them apart forever??

I absolutely loved the angst and heartache of this story. I felt that the characters really brought everything to life and I couldn’t stop because I simply had to know what happened next! I highly recommend this book!!

Beautiful love story

I loved how the couple loved each other, and how Tess didn’t think she had a chance of winning Sebastian, but he chose her. Wish it had dual narration, but I loved the story!

Not the Best. But Not the Worst

First off the narrator on this book made it almost unbearable to listen to. She was so monotone and boring. I could hardly get through the book. Second off, the story was descent but the inner monologue got old really fast. There was just too much of it. The author did too much telling and not enough showing which is a problem some authors have and it makes books hard to read/listen to. The story was descent and was worth the listen overall, since it was free, but I wouldn't have wanted to pay to listen to it. It would have been a waste of a credit.

I fell in love & is a favorite read of the year!

So this is the first book I have read by this author and I loved it. It's full of angst, a few tears shed, sweetness, romance, great friendships, trying to let go and moving on, swoon worthy hotness and an undeniable love & connection between two people that never fades over the years even separated. The author sucked me in and made me feel every emotion in the book in more. I connected with Tess on so many levels. I truly felt that I was in the book reliving my experiences. Sebastian is totally swoon worthy, his passion for Tess is undeniably felt through out the whole book. My heart breaks for him in a lot of spots in this book due to the things he has to go through with his home life. I also absolutely love the connection & bond that Tess has with her Best Friends Brie & Courtney. Every girl needs best friends & a bond like these three have. Seriously check this book out and just trust in Where the Night Ends you won't regret it. Definitely a 5 star read for me.
The narrators did an amazing job & brought more than a life to this book. They brought feels & heart as well!

A Sweet Angsty Love Story

This story was a sweet and angsty listen about Sebastian and Tess that meet in high school and then spans the next five years of their lives. The up and down emotional roller coaster this story takes gives your heart a good ride.

The narrator for this story was on point. She was able to give depth and emotion to all characters, male and female. I can't wait to listen to more of her work.
