Reeling from the revelation of a long-held family secret, 29-year-old Aurora Shirley is just over it all. If her parents could lie to Aurora all her life, won't everyone else?

Marvelous Romance

Two women who don’t have any interest in a romantic relationship agree to a friends with benefits arrangement. Believable characters and situations with a warm narration.

A little disjointed...but in a good way?

The plot jumps around a good bit, but in a way that feels it echoes the actual disjointedness of relationships in life. Towards the beginning there were a few scenes that were a little frustrating, it was as if the characters weren't listening to each other or themselves, but that quickly resolved. Overall it was cute, light and kept me interested. Lori Prince is always a pleasure, though this didn't feel like her best work...there were places where there were odd gaps between words for certain characters.

Just ok

I hated the narrator, every voice sounded like a middle school smarty. The first 1/2 i actually thought about just quitting but i stuck with it and as the story went on I wanted to find out the ending. The narration never got better but the story turned out ok. Not one i will listen to twice.

reservation of the heart

slow burn with age gap which was shown in beginning and not really thereafter. as they say to love someone u have to lobe yourself first and then u have to learn to be open and trust. that was learnt by the main characters. great listen to the narrator interpretation of the voices of the characters
