Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Kitty Bang's performance: 5 stars | Paul Berton's performance: 4.5 stars
Yes without hesitation! It did take me a bit to get used to how Paul did the southern accent for all of the American female characters. But overall, both narrators did a great job enhancing the story, easily putting this one on my favorites list. I'm currently relistening to it now while I write this review.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Dax was my favorite character. I have a thing for British guys, and I liked his personality and his honesty about his actions and even his academic performance. His connection to his mom was so sweet, and I loved how her letter inspired him.
Which character – as performed by Kitty Bang and Paul Berton – was your favorite?
Again that would be Dax. Both narrators seemed to get his character quirks and animated him well. I was Team Dax pretty much from the beginning but especially after he told us about their past 3-nighter in a flashback.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
My jaw dropped open and I exclaimed out loud in amazement more than a few times during some of the confrontations scenes between various characters. And of course, Dax and Remi had plenty of steamy scenes as well that merited an immediate reread! ;)
Any additional comments?
A snippet from one of my favorite scenes:“You taste like every good thing I’ve ever wanted.”His taut restraint snapped, and he swayed into me. “God, I can’t tell you no.”“Then don’t.”

…. Brings two hurt souls together.
This was an captivating second chance love story, filled with lots of drama, angst, heartbreak, passion, heat, and love. While I felt the story had a slow start, it definitely picked up, and had a few heart crushing moments, that had me hooked and hanging on each word waiting to see how these two would finally come together. A well written complex plot with lots of emotions and characters who had depth.
Dax is a lost soul, not sure what he wants out of life, college or relationships. He's got the body, looks, and lives the college frat boy life style, different parties and different girls. He avoids commitments but deep down he's afraid of getting hurt. Needing a break from the college life, Dax goes to spend his summer break with his cousin Spider in London.
Remi is strong, resilient, and suffered through a tragic heartache in her past. She once again finds herself nursing another broken heart after her fiancé suddenly calls off their wedding. In attempt to piece back her broken heart, she goes on her honeymoon to London…. single with her best friend Lulu. Whether it's fate or dumb luck, while Remi is at a party drinking and trying to have a good time, she accidently stumbles right into the lap of the first guy who truly broke her heart, Dax. Talk about dump luck! Three years ago, Remi and Dax spent an incredible weekend together, one neither of them could forget. As soon as it was over, Dax went right back to his frat boy party lifestyle. Because they attend the same college, it broke Remi's heart a little each time she saw him with a different girl.
While in London, Remi and Dax decide they will just be friends; however, their feelings, passion, and lust for each other quickly surface and they end up giving into the magnetic pull between. They spend an amazing steamy night together. Dax truly is the only man who has ever been able to make Remi burn with passion and need. The next morning, while Dax is out getting breakfast, Remi's ex-finance walks right back into her life without warning wanting a second chance. When Dax walks back to the hotel and sees them together, he takes off, doesn't say goodbye or even responds to her texts. Remi's left hurt, confused, and doesn't know what to do, but fate has a way of ensuring Dax and Remi's paths cross. Each encounter has them facing their inner feelings for each other, and when Dax learns Remi has been keeping a devastating secrete, his feelings become even more complex and confused.
This is the first story I've heard narrated by Kitty Bang and Paul Berton. They both did a great job, but Kitty's performance sounded a little more polished. Paul had a great accent, and I liked how he narrated the male characters but his female characters had me laughing. While I found the female voices funny at times, it really didn't take away for the story, and overall I enjoyed the audio.
This is the second book in the series, but could easily be listened too as a stand alone. Well worth the time and credit. (An awesome deal for those who have KU membership.)
