Publisher's Summary

Jack and Lexi never had a typical relationship. After two years without speaking, she receives a phone call that changes everything. He unexpectedly asks her to convince the new girl, Bekah, that he's ready to commit. Jack is calling now after everything they had been through because there is another woman. She can't believe it. Follow Lexi in this heart wrenching drama as she relives her past relationship, or lack thereof, with Jack, and not just in her own mind, but to his fiancée-to-be. Throw in Bekah's hot brother who always seems to be in the right place at the right time, a past with more secrets to unravel than you can even imagine, and you get a recipe for disaster. Find out what happens to Lexi as she travels to Atlanta to get the closure she so desperately desires from Jack, and how the bumps of life seem to keep getting in the way.

PHEW WHAT A GREAT BOOK - I'M EMOTIONALLY EXHAUSTED

Firstly, be warned you could lose friends (and sleep) over this listen - it's the sort of book that just absolutely sucks you in and you find yourself growling and snarling at anybody who even attempts to talk to you which would make you have to press the 'pause' button.

This well written passionate love story played on my emotions like no other book I've listened to has - there was hope, happiness, sadness, anger, tension, rage, frustration and ..... finally utter speechless disbelief. It flips backwards and forwards from present day back through a 6 year emotional roller-coaster relationship between two people who become friends and then lovers but both sadly fail to find themselves in the right place at the right time for a lasting relationship. There are lots of strong secondary characters who become involved in some way through this story and they either add or hinder the lovers.

Although you may be fooled into thinking this is YA - that is not the case - there is passion and sex scenes - but they are entwined amongst the backdrop of their emotions for one another.

Worth a credit? I don't know know good this has been for my blood pressure but it's a definite YES if your a romance lover please don't miss this listen - but be warned - have some tissues ready.

WOW!

Would you listen to Avoiding Commitment again? Why?

yes, it brought me back to when I was a teenager and first feel in love.

What did you like best about this story?

The true honesty of the situation she kept finding herself in.

Any additional comments?

The was a truly emotional makes you think kind of book. Lets you understand better what love at first sight can make you think, feel, and even sometimes do. Deals with feelings I am sure a lot of ppl have or will face in their lifetime.

Whew!!!

Talk about an emotional whirlwind. This one had my emotions in an uproar. At times I just wanted to knock Lexi in the head with a bat. Lexi has a relationship with Jack for years that is not a healthy one. We are taken from the present to the past and back to the present. Jack has never chosen Lexi but he won’t let her go. Lexi destroys every relationship she has because she can’t let go of Jack. Jack wants Lexi to meet the woman he intends to propose to and convince her that he is ready to commit. Of course Jack starts his same old pattern again and he wants both women. Will Lexi finally let him go or will Jack finally be the man he should be and give Lexi the love she deserves?

Is this one worth a credit? Yes, because I love not knowing which way the story is going. There’s allot of things going on and the story isn’t predictable. I will say I do hope there is another book.

couldn't finish it

I hated the characters and after listening to over 150 audible romance books some I've struggled to finish but this was so frustrating I stopped. I read the reviews for the following books but didn't feel compelled to go on.

Women are so stupied

Any additional comments?

This book could be true. Some men really think that they can treat women like this. A smile a kiss a little love making and women will be in wrapped around there little finger.

Intense!

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character in this story was Chyna. Love her loyalty to her best friend Lexi. Despite all the idiotic, stupid things that Lexi does with Jack, Chyna is right there with her to pick up the broken pieces.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book totally pissed me off, in a good way. Wow, talk about an intense relationship. Geez, I was exhausted by the time I was done with this book. Let's just say that I overused plenty of expletives while reading this book. My god...I really hate Jack! Stupid moron! But Lexi, well she lets him walk all over her! Poor thing, the things people do for love. Overall, this was a very enjoyable book even though it did send my blood pressure thru the roof!

This story is complex in terms of dealing with relationships and also emotionally. I find I have to be in the right mind to read/listen to this series. I wish the narrator was different.
