Eight years, eight years, eight years. Those two words were said 35 times, according to my iPad, in this 182 page story. I guess Ms. Mondello thought her readers were just too dense to remember that Beau and Mandy were apart that long so she felt the need to repeat it again and again.
And Mandy is still mad at him for leaving her when she was 16? Really? She’s mean and hateful at every turn, until 75% of the story, and she’s still acts like she 16. You’d think in eight years she would have a more grown up attitude.
This was a G-rated book. No sex and no swearing, no OMG moments, no nothing. Just a simple love story. I’m probably done with Ms. Mondello.
As to the narrator: Love, love, love Eric G. Dove. He does a fantastic job when he reads BUT not even Eric could help this book that much.
I wish I had known this was a young adult romance before I bought it. I got it through a sale promotion for romances and it was not worth the sale price. It strikes me as something I might have written in high school.
The characters are one dimensional. What character development there is is very protracted and does not adequately explain the characters' motives or actions. Mandy over dramatizes the wrong done to her and her 8 years of grieving is not believable -- even for the most immature drama queen.
This book may appeal to a very dramatic teenager -- but it was a waste of time for an adult.
