Publisher's Summary

"Marry me."

"What?" I stared back at him, unblinking.

He moved closer, taking my face in his hands. "I love you, Evie. I look into the future, and the only thing I see clearly is you. Marry me."

What's an 18-year-old girl who was madly in love with her 19-year-old boyfriend say? Of course, I said yes.

Twenty-four hours later, I married Adam Gunner at a Vegas chapel to the sounds of "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi. Not the best omen. I get that now.

Then, exactly one week later, I left him. I walked out, leaving behind my wedding ring, annulment papers, and my heart, and he never knew why. I haven't seen him since. Not in 10 long years.

Now, he's here, standing before me. Looking at me with nothing but hurt and hatred in his eyes, he wants answers. Answers I can't give.

Liked it

maybe it was the narrators or because i'm used to the more comedic sexy romance that Samantha Towle writes but this book didn't gel with me. its a little different maybe but i still liked it. its so sad and its real and it still flowed. But I missed the humour from previous books by her.

Adam and Evie

Any additional comments?

Nothing beats a second chance romance. This book is amazing. I loved the audio, I loved the characters, and I loved the romance.

Adam and Evie are the couple everyone strives to be. They may be young, but they are head over heels in love with each other.

So what could possibly tear them apart? What destroys a marriage? What hurts Adam and Evie beyond repair?

This is one of those books you need to read to truly appreciate. It's a book you should experience. You don't want the details because the details are what make the book. Those details make the story. Those details, the little ones and the big ones, make Adam and Evie.

An easy listen!

A sweet second chance romance that was pretty predictable but I really enjoyed Samantha Towle's writing style. The characters were likeable especially Max with his witty one liners!

Maybe skip the audiobook

I had read this story about a year ago and I loved it but I felt like something was lost in the audiobook.

This is a great second chance romance story, we get the back story, the current story, emotional depth very steamy love scenes and loveable characters. However, Evie's reason for leaving was incredibly predictable and Adam could be a real jerk sometimes. But that's what made the story seem so real. It simply two people who are hurt but still love each other and are clumsily trying to find a way to navigate their feelings.

I was not fond of the voice actors. I would just read the book.

I like the story but...

I like the story but I don’t understand the narrators. Male narrator was very good until he switched to females voice. Every time I heard this, it made me grinch which ruin the emotions for the character. If you like romance and don’t mind that distraction, this one is for you!

"Chick Flick" Material!

Overall I enjoyed this story, but it would've been better had I read the book vs. listening to the audible version. I just wasn't impressed with the narrators... Other the male narrator's voice sounds great as a guy; It felt as though he was trying to hard to sound like a girl, which made the voice come across as a transvestite. The female narrator was good overall, just not enough distinction between the female characters.
The story drags a bit in the beginning, but the ending was great. I could definitely picture this story becoming a gritty "chick flick" (right mix of comedic timing, drama, sex, and adult content)

Drama! Drama!

What did you like best about When I Was Yours? What did you like least?

It was very disappointing. It was a sad love story that found each other. It was predictable but I felt it didn't have a good storyline.

If you’ve listened to books by Samantha Towle before, how does this one compare?

I have read other books of Samantha Towle, I felt this should have been done better.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

They needed a better narrators.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

I felt the storyline did not flow better enough, there were some parts I think that the editors cut off, not sure why, maybe it was becoming of a long story. But, I rather have a long story, than a cut up one.

Good and an emotional contemporary

This was surprisingly good. Both Adam and Evie were such reel and emotional characters. Also, both narrators are amazing. The only down side is the ending is quite rushed. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone who likes contemporary books
