Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist new to LA, by chance. Although she is moving to Chicago, their undeniable chemistry leads them to spend the day together.

Despite the distance, throughout the years and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet.

But can Ben's novel--and simultaneously his relationship with Fallon--be considered a love story if it turns out not to have a happy ending?

    Love this book. Love the romance and the mystery! Great story!! I couldn't wait to get to the end. Didn't love the narration. Would have liked more inflections and more passion in the tone of their voices.

  • Michelle Romano

    Loved the book very much. Found Fallin somewhat annoying yave me the shits at times. Loved the surprise near the end of the book. Well worth the tead.

  • MARIA NAVARRO

    It wasn't my favorite out of the Colleen Hoover stories I've listened to so far. I liked the way Ben and Fallon met, their chemistry seemed genuine and realistic for a first encounter. I even liked how Ben looked passed Fallon's burn scars and saw her beauty. The parts that had me scratching my head was how the author had cameos of three characters from Ugly Love. I liked having a taste for Miles, Tate and Ian again but the connection seemed odd. In Ugly Love Ian and Miles met in elementary, in San Francisco where they both grew up, so how is it that Ian's two brothers grew up in LA? Do they have different fathers and Ian lived with him while his brothers lived with their mom? Confusing. The other thing that had me shaking my head was the twist at the end that explains why Ben first approached Fallon. I don't know why but I wanted to roll my eyes. Perhaps because I'm noticing a trend with these Colleen Hoover books: girl meets guy, he develops intense feelings but his troubled passed interrupts their blossoming love, then finally her unwavering love is what heals the guys wounds... Blah blah. I also didn't care for the breathy narration voice for Fallon. It starts off strong every time the story returns to Fallon but then the narrator sounds normal after a while. Anyway, overall assessment, not bad but won't listen to it again the way I do with most audios.
