What if you would never remember the day you made the most important decision of your life? That's what they're telling me about the day of my accident - the day I put on Max's ring and chose him over Nate. I'm counting on the wisdom behind a decision I don't remember making. Max is amazing - sexy, sweet, and kind. I was starting to believe happily-ever-after might be in my future after all. Then the unthinkable happened and my world imploded. If I'm going to make this work with Max, I need my missing memories, or at least answers from about those five days before my accident. But what does my future hold if those answers aren't anything like I imagined?

"Add the ending to the first book and call it a day"
Someone said that you had to listen to each book in sequence. The first 1/4 of the second and third books were a repeat of the first book. Where I could tell what was happening in the first book even though the author jumped around with the story, I had a bit of trouble in the second and third books. Where I was excited for Hanna to make a choice in the her life partner in the first book, by the end of book 2, I was over it. I agree this story worked okay with two books, it could easily have been done in one book. I increased the speed of the narrator and even jumped to the last chapter of this, the third book. I have never done that. But, I did go back to Chapter 12 and listen to the end. Just wanted to know what new information was provided that made Hanna choose who she chose. I was please that her choice would have been mine. However, throughout the series, my choice changed between the two guys. Too bad she couldn't clone herself.
"great story. little cheesy ending"
story ending was a little to cheesy especially being narrated by Nate.. he was awful.. way over the top .. he ruined the nate character for me
"Loved the story"
Great story, but the 2nd snd 3rd book were confusing with the past and present storyline. The narrator for the Nate character was horrible. I only stuck with it cause I really loved the story.
The flipping back and forth was a little confusing but overall a fabulously passionate story!
"Perfect Ending for Hanna"
Here and Now is an interesting title for Hanna’s story because, for the most part, she’s not living in the present. She’s stuck recalling information that hurts her and redefines her life in many ways. Hanna is not the same person since the accident; from my perspective, there’s a clear distinction between the pre-accident Hanna and the post accident Hanna, but she doesn’t seem to realize that because she’s dealing with information overload. She has two men, who are diverse in most ways except for how they feel about her, vying for her affection. Her mind is a jumbled mess, but I always felt like her heart made the choice for her so long ago; she just needed her mind to catch up with it. The love triangle that exists between Hanna, Max, and Nate is atypical, in a way, because it seems like the dilemma stems from who Hanna truly wants versus who everyone else wants for her. All of her life, Hanna has always let others influence and dictate her life, which has only resulted in an extremely poor sense of self and a life not truly lived. By the end of All For This, Hanna asks for what she wants and needs and knows, in her heart, that that’s what she should have chosen since the very beginning.
As Hanna's personal life gets more and more complicated, the three narrators allow listeners to understand what's at stake for all of them. Hanna's, Max's, and Nate's emotions are made clear through the varying intonations that the narrators use, which added to my appreciation of the text as a whole.
All For This is the perfect ending to Hanna’s story because as Hanna's memories return and others help to fill in the blanks, everything becomes clear for both Hanna and the listeners/readers, which is exactly the resolution readers are looking for in the final book of a series. I loved the Here and Now series, and I can’t wait to see what Lexi Ryan gives listeners/readers next.

"a little repetitive BUT"
I loved this series. This book could've been cut in half. It was very repetitive & I found myself halfway through the book thinking ...ok we get it, lets move it along BUT I did love it!
it was always a center character! Great story hate that it ended! !! jq

i loved this series i hope there is a book 4. i want to know if Hanna and Nate get married and what happens to Max and Meredith
"The finish I was hoping for"
I listened to this series in a weekend and I had mixed feelings throughout the journey. I fell in love with the characters and the story line in the first book, started to bore with the story-line with the 2nd, and eager to read the third to see how it all tied together and wrapped up. I'm glad the yo-yo came to an end in this final book and the characters were released from the limbo they'd been living in so they were free to get back to life. The answers that I was looking for finally came in this book and the characters were well developed and their evolution was natural and obvious. While I was beginning to feel stagnant in the love triangle in the 2nd book in the series I never thought about putting it down without finishing simply because Lexi did such a great job bringing the characters to life and I felt like I had to finish the journey with them. I was beginning to dislike Hanna in the 2nd book and her indecision was making me insane but she redeemed herself in All for This. This series was definitely worth the credits and the 20 hrs of listening! I will be watching for more from this author.
