Publisher's Summary

Grayson Ford and Emma Kinglsey - close since they were kids, opposites in every way. He's the stuff high school crushes are made of, Mister Popular, and captain of every team. She's artsy, cute, and not in his league, though fully aware of Summerland's "I Dream of Dating Grayson Ford" support group.
"I can't say no. The girl's had my heart since before I knew it went missing."
He hides a life of hell. His father hates him; his mother's gone. Emma is his only savior, yet she doesn't know her power over him. She's the only girl he wants, the only one he could ever tell - though he won't.
"I'm stronger, bigger, more of a man than he'll ever be, but because I ruined his life, I've taken his crap, his attacks, the vulgar nature of his existence."
Then she discovers Gray's embarrassment, his humiliation. Emma fights for him and for a chance. Theirs is a Cinderella story that she believes impossible. But as the layers peel back, it's just a guy who needs a girl in order to keep breathing.
"My mind is already doodling Mrs. Grayson Ford in imaginary notebooks. He has no clue where my head is at.... But, given that I didn't see what just happened coming, maybe I have no clue where his head is at either."

Enjoyed it a lot, but....

I'm leaving the biggest part of my review for the fourth in the series.

YOU have to listen to ALL of the series!!! I can't say that loud enough. Wonderful Roller coaster of emotions, laughter, joy, pain, almost had me in tears.

But, I say the above because I wasn't going to listen to the rest of the series, just because of the ending in the first part. I have to be honest. It was in your face, scream at the writer. For all the right and all the wrong reasons. I could have quite easily gone away and said ummp okay... and it's the only reason I marked it down because it did feel awful. Maybe that was the writers intention, to leave us with no hope, but it wasn't what I expected.

The thing was I hadn't even known it was a series, I'd bought this in the interest of taking a listen to duel narrators to see what they were like. And although the story is good. Guy and girl get together etc, with wonderful narration from both XE and Jeffrey, the attention to detail and wonderful expressions the ending was a bit of a let down... If a friend hadn't pointed it out that it was a series, and I should give the rest a chance, I wouldn't have carried on. I am so glad that I did. Thank you. Well worth listening to and the second in the series made a good come back, winning me over. So yeah, you got off on that one... but only just....


Think I'm gonna be saying, S Shoot S for a while though it has to be my fav laugh out loud moment, and XE brings such life to it, sad or happy. Great stuff.

If you read this review and are unsure, don't be. One of the best books you'll listen to.
