Publisher's Summary

When it comes down to acclaim in the yearbook, my class rank would probably earn me my only entry, but probably very little else. I don’t wear cosmetics, do my hair, or really give a damn about my appearance in general. I don’t need to be cool, and I’ve managed my high school career navigating all the different groups from the nerds to the jocks to the theatre kids and the band geeks. 

Kicking off senior year, my only focus is to make every AP class count and keep my grades up. Shouldn’t be hard, particularly with my so-called untouchable status. Oh yeah, imagine that — I had a reputation. Hadn’t been a blip on my radar until the end of junior year when one of the girls’ dropped that little nugget on me. Apparently, the guys at school considered me the best girl to hang out with for fun or homework, but nothing else. 

While I’m not looking for a date, it’s a little hard to swallow that I ranked as the best bud and tutor, but would definitely never fall into the Girl Most Likely To Get Asked Out. 

Pfft. What did I care? One more year and I was off to college, so what if the numbers of female friends I used to have drifted off and I’d scored a permanent seat in the friend zone. I had subjects to study, grades to maintain, and colleges to get into. Fine, I didn’t care about the rules or status before, and I wouldn’t now. 

181 class days to go, and I’ll graduate. No problem, right? 

Please note this is a reverse harem and the author suggests you always listen to the forward in her books. Contains some bullying elements, mature situations, and is recommended for 17+. This is the first in a series and the story will continue through future books.

AMAZING

A duet narration! And so hot!! But that ending is insane! This book does end on a cliffhanger, and I am so annoyed because the next audiobook version isn’t out yet and doesn’t have a release date. However, having said that, this is still a book I would definitely recommend. I absolutely loved this as an audiobook and the style of narration they chose to present it as. In part of the book, they also make some sounds for a ringing phone and make the voice sound like it is on the phone which I loved as well. The romance definitely doesn’t finish with this book, but there is some held in this book. While listening to this book, there were definitely times where I wanted to slap some of the characters, and this will probably happen with you too because one of the many things Heather Long has been able to do in writing this book is share emotion and discovery through every new page that connects so well with the reader. If you have read the blurb and think this is a book you may enjoy, I would definitely recommend it to you. Enjoy!

Loved this book from the beginning

This is my first book I’ve read by Heather Long and I absolutely loved it! I can’t wait to finish this series! The characters were great and the narrators did a fantastic job with this duet narration! So great!

How could they keep that secret.

Frankie has four real good friends who happen to be boys she has know a very long time. It's senior year and she has the chance to date all of them. Coop, Ian, Archie, and Jake each has something special about them that Frankie loves. Frankie has a mother that seems like she does not want to be a mother at all she is selfish. And that cliffhanger says it all. Can't wait to listen to book 2.

Loved it!

I really loved this book. It’s long which is wonderful. It builds the storyline and characters so well. It’s a bit of a slow build romance wise in the beginning... but that time is used wisely to really develop the characters and show their relationships.

I really didn’t have high hopes for this book before I started it. It seems like everything I listen to lately is just “meh”. This was great. So refreshing.

I’m excited to start the second book.

Loved It!

I loved this start to finish. The story was excellent, but the narration really brought it to life! I've been struggling to find audio books where the voices don't ruin the story, I love it when they use different people (sexes) for the different characters!

I want moree

this was very addictive and I'm so sad they don't have the other books on audible yet. This had a good balance of steam with still having a full story. I don't like when there is some much steam in a book that their is no real story. Not a problem with this book. It was so well written which is no surprise with the author. Can't wait for then next one.

Loved it!

I wasn't sure I would like the audio book as good as the printed version, but I absolutely loved it! The narrators did a wonderful job of bringing the story and characters to life. Can't wait for the next one.

Love Love Love!

One of the best books I read in ages! I love the depth that Heather Long brings to each character in this book. I feel like I'm right there with all of them. So real I wish it didn't have to end. I highly recommend. My only complaint is that this is the only book of the series available with Audible. I will continue the series but will have to do it the old fashion way and actually read the rest of the books. Thanks Heather Long for an awesome read!

Fabulous Audiobook for a Fabulous Story

I read the book before this came out on audiobook. I'm so glad I splurged and got the audiobook as well. It's such a good story and the recording is terrific. Highly recommend!
