Jason Thorn...my brother's childhood friend. Oh, how stupidly in love with that boy I was. He was the first boy who made me blush, my first official crush. Sounds beautiful so far, right? That excitement that bubbles up inside you, those famous butterflies you feel for the very first time - he was the reason for them all. But you get to live in that fairy tale world only until they crush your hopes and dreams and then stomp on your heart for good measure. And boy did he crush my little heart into pieces.
After the stomping part, he became the boy I did my best to stay away from - and let me tell you, it was pretty hard to do when he slept in the room right across from mine. When tragedy struck his family and they moved away, I was ready to forget he ever existed. Now he's a movie star, the one who makes women of all ages go into a screaming frenzy. Me? I'm Olive, a new writer. Actually, I'm the writer of the book that inspired the movie he is about to star in on the big screen. As of late, I am also referred to as the oh, so very lucky girl who is about to become the wife of Jason Thorn.
Contains mature themes.

Heart warming, hilarious, amazing
Jason going to find Olive at her parent's home
Olive and Jason's first meeting as adults
Yes, Jason FINALLY admitting his feelings to Olive
Sebastian York does a brilliant job narrating as Jason, his voice is super sexy!! Lidia Dornet is the perfect Olive!
Being in my early 20's, I've found it difficult to find cute books that include romance, but not so much that it's all about the sex. This book is the PERFECT fit for me. It has all the giddy moments, with some heated delicious moments sprinkled in. Overall, the characters are easy to love, and this made for an excellent listen!
"This was fantastic!"
I can't believe there isn't more hype about this book! I enjoyed it so much. The story is so sweet and I love how it was wrapped up. It was sweet and sexy without being too much. Ella created the perfect relationship in this perfect book! I couldn't recommend this enough.
"A sweet romantic love story. "
Every girl remembers her first love and this story is all about that first love and how it never falters even through many years of separation. This book is very realistic and it's every girls fantasy that her first love (who would inevitably turn out to be a movie star) would come back to tell her how much he loves her... in the end, would marry her. In this book however since the sequence of events are a little out of order but in the end all her dreams come true.
The narrators both do such a great job. Lidia is very convincing as the main character Olive and it's not difficult at all to picture Sebastian as the love of her life Jason.... All in all, this was a heart warming love story and well worth the listen/read!!! 💞
Oh... and P. S..... there is some crazy hot sex scenes..... yum!
"Steamy, feel good romance"
I must agree with some of the reviews on here- this book is underrated for sure. I enjoyed every bit of it, althought it is not action and drama packed the author succeeded in writing a feel good romance leaving a big smile on my face. And boy it was steamy, sizzling hot capturing that bottled up chemistry between the characters perfectly!
Sebastian, as allways just added to the swoon factor of the hot male lead. Lidia portrayed the female roles perfectly.
A definate 5/5...
"Sebastian York I am in love with your voice"
I loved to love story, and loved Sebastian voice as male. he has such a great voice.
"A pleasant surprise!!"
This book was delicious!! Was a complete surprise how much I enjoyed this book. This book has witty dialogue, plenty of romance, little angst and a wonderful HEA!! Loved it! Definitely must listen!!
I enjoyed this story. The readers definitely did a great job. Definitely a lighthearted, kinda charmed life book.
an original! loved every single word. just wish there was more at the end. I did not want the story to end.
"I LOVED JASON THORN... & SEBASTIAN YORK TOO"
What a wonderful story... sweet, addictive, fun, sexy and with a few curveballs thrown into the mix. Well written, brilliantly narrated, two great characters, a few likeable interesting secondary characters and a romance that took time to develop, build and grow into an all-consuming love story.
Worth a credit? Yep, IMO a dual POV addictive storyline, a sexy dirty talking hero and a HEA ending definitely makes this awesome Contemporary listen creditworthy.
This is one of those series. I read/listened to book #2 before this one...so I kind of knew how this one was going to turn out...but really, is there ever really any doubt in romance? But I also kind of liked the story line in book #2 better, but I have a feeling if I had listened to this one first, I would have rated it just a tiny bit higher, because it was really a good book...just not quite as good as book #2.
Jason was always best friends with Olive's much older brother...and she always had a mad crush on him until he suddenly moved away and disappeared from their lives. Shortly after that Hollywood discovered him and he's America's heartthrob now...at least he would be if he could keep his pants on long enough to not be America's latest scandal.
Since he left her life, Olive has put all her emotion into writing. That resulted in her first book becoming a runaway bestseller with a movie option and everything. They want Jason to star in the movie and that throws the two of them back together again. But this time with a twist...he needs her to fix his soiled reputation. What better way to fix things than by a romance with his childhood friend.
It's a sweet story and was a complete joy to listen to. I adore these two narrators and would happily listen to them all day long. This was one of those audios where I was making up things to do around the house simply so I could listen to the book longer.
The backstory between the two was phenomenal and added a lot to their romance. They both have such individual and skewed views on how things were back then...and now. It was fun to watch the story evolve to the point where their views suddenly became meshed as one.
This is definitely one of those books that I highly recommend if you enjoy contemporary romance/new adult romance at all.
"HOW not To Love Jason Thorn"
Funny, Original, Romantic
I like the idea behind the story. I love the childhood crush to Lovers idea, but it was very well planned and the dialogues are engaging.
OMG I think I would never go to A Karaoke Bar and not think about that scene between Jason and Olive, that first kiss was MAGICAL!
Yes, however life caught up with me and it took me longer that planned to finish it, nevertheless I loved every minute.
Sebastian York, is there anything he cant do?? He brings each of his characters to life and Jason Thorn was no exception, he makes the reader fall madly in love but he always puts everything into his acting, he is just sensational!! I do have to admire Lidia Dornet, because she sounded how I imagined Olive to be. So not taking away from the incredible book, but the actors made it even more wonderful.
"sebastian york's voice yum"
