Summary

Greyson Ratcliffe. I met him at 16, the hot new guy sitting on my jetty, an aspiring artist just passing through. He was my first kiss and my first love. I wanted forever with him. I didn't even get a year.
Five years later, I'm a budding writer who scripts stories of love and struggle, the good and the bad and the ups and the downs. He's a star on the rise - his wicked talent and crazy good looks have his face plastered on countless magazines. We move in two different worlds and still our paths cross again. We're older and wiser and as crazy about each other as we had been as teenagers.
My medium is words and my imagination is limitless, but not even I could have written the incredible journey we traveled to reach our happily-ever-after. Life isn't like fiction, and the greatest love stories don't follow a script.
Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

So much story, Amazing

I loved this story so much can not say enough good things about it. I felt like I lived Alexis life with her. She was such an amazing character with so much strength. The opening scene is so sad but opens the story so well. Greyson was such a sweetheart and I was so sad at the time they had to spend apart but I think it made them better stronger people. All the characters in the book helped make the story flow so well. L.A Fiore just always gets it spot on and this one is just the same another amazingly told story. So much happens to Alexis in her life you can't help but want to wrap her up and take care of her. Tracy Marks is just so great as a story teller she is one of my all time Favourites she is so good at doing the male voices and I loved her Irish accent. Arron Shedlock was just wow his Iris accent was spot on and I am from an Irish family he is just so good at becoming Greyson you could hear the pain in his voice during the harder parts. This book follows both Greyson and Alexis over many years and we find out how life is changing and developing for them. This is a must listen to audio book just beautiful. I will be telling all my friends to go get it ASAP.

What a Gem!

I was blown away by this book. L.A. Fiore wrote a wonderful book with so many facets and emotions. I thought the narration by Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock was spot on. Aaron's Irish accent was wonderful!
I loved how the characters knew each other for a long span of time and their love and relationship was deep. The author did a great job with the perspective of Alexis and Grayson. The book has so many realistic moments and it touches the listener with all of the emotions of loving someone. Sometimes one feels they need to go away to protect the other. Although that is often the case, its not fair. The narrators were able to deliver so many heartfelt emotions. The thought of a life without love is not a life worth protecting was an interesting concept. The story was original and thought provoking. It also has some great humor and imagery. I found this book to be a story of life lived and loved. I was glad that Grayson had not broken them, only bent them. Also, the concept that family was more than blood was so true. I will definitely be listening to this book again. I enjoyed how the story moved and was unscripted.

AN EPIC TALE OF TRUE LOVE, SECOND CHANCES & HEA’S

For me, the release of a new audiobook written by the talented L. A. Fiore is always very very tempting.. but when that book is narrated by Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks I start to mentally chant (and maybe even out loud too) “gimme gimme gimme”. And my anticipation and excitement grows as I click my way through all the buttons to make this baby mine because I know it’s going to be an epically awesome listen. And these three artists didn’t disappoint.. L.A. Fiore has written a sweet, nicely paced, dual POV story of love at first sight between two endearing teens.. but sadly it couldn’t last long because ambitions, goals and a fast approaching end date get in the way of true love.

It then becomes a beautifully touching second-chance love story when the hero and heroine reconnected years later. But their romantic relationship carries on way way past their HEA’s to span decades because Ms Fiore was far from finished with this humble loving couple’s journey.. or their character growth, their passion and pleasure, their challenges and their heartbreaking fallout from someone’s obsession.

Worth a credit? Yes.. it’s an emotional, touching, romantic, multi-faceted love story with a tidal wave of feels, it’s got a droolworthy sweet Irish hero, a heroine with a beautiful yet damaged soul.. and it’s filled with wonderfully supporting secondary characters. This book came to life by the faultless narration of Tracy and Aaron who brought the magic that made a good book into a great listen.

Another winner from Fiore, Marks, and Shedlock

This masterful storytelling trio has done it again! This is one you don’t want to miss. I went into this book only knowing the author and narrators, and once again, I was amazed at the storytelling ability of all three. I was pulled in from the very first syllable and couldn’t stop listening. I finished in one sitting, stayed up until 5am to finish. This is the 5th book I’ve listened to from this trio and, as with the previous 4 books, I was so drawn into the story that it was as if I was there, a part of the story; I felt each loss and triumph, laughed and cried along side these characters. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, it’s a brilliantly written story, beautifully told. I absolutely love the magic that happens when these three artists work together! Any book written by Fiore and narrated by Marks and/or Shedlock is an automatic download for me.
