I'm gonna keep this short, because otherwise I don't know if I'll ever stop writing about how good this book is. This book spoke to my soul, I'm asexual so it was so amazing to read about a character like me. And like Holly, I don't hate sex but I find pleasure by pleasing my partners. I wish some day I find some one that gets me like Leo understood her.
I'm too emotional to go into specifics, so I can't tell you about all my favorite scenes. But I will talk about one thing I loved, because it's so rare, even in other queer books I've read. It's was when threre was still like 2 and half hours left and I was like "omg there going to be some unnecessary drama right?" But no, they TALKED, which sometimes it doesn't happen in other books and it's SOOO frustrating.
So it was a refreshing story in lots of ways. Both the author and the narrator did an AMAZING job bringing these characters to life. Each was unique and perfectly portrayed, they felt real, like people you might know, so their pain and joy also felt real, which made this whole experience extremely rewarding.
I CAN'T recommend this book enough, so buy it, be it printed, Kindle or audiobook format, it doesn't matter, although the audiobook has the added bonus of the narrator. I know I'm gonna be getting it in ALL formats, even if it's the last thing I do. So stop reading my rambling, do yourself a favor and dive into this story, you're not gonna regret it. I know I didn't, and never will.

I thought the narrator, Angela Dawe did a very good job with the different characters. She evoked the emotions of the 2 main characters, Leo & Holly. I thought Jae did an excellent job with talking about Asexuality and showing that there are many ways to truly love. Communication & respect were the important pieces in seeing if a very sexual Leo could make it in a relationship with Asexual Holly.
I read this book 7 times before the audiobook was release, so I was worried that I would be disappointed by the narration. However it was honestly a perfect fit in my opinion. This was the first of Angela Dawe’s performances I’ve heard. But definitely not the last. I’ve since purchased a few more books narrated by her.
I love that this story includes a character who is on the Ace (Asexual) spectrum. It’s the first book I’ve read with an Asexual character, and I loved learning more about this sexual orientation.
As soon as I started listening to this audiobook I knew that I wouldn’t be able to stop. I absolutely loved everything about this audiobook, the talent of the narrator matched the writers talent really well.
*From my review of the eBook*.
I loved everything about this book... it's well written, has two romantic leads I could relate to and instantly liked, and it has a story that intrigued me and kept me turning the pages. It sucked me in from the beginning and just wouldn't let go. It gave me a lot to think about as well as giving me a romantic story that I enjoyed.
Not only does this book cover sexual orientation/identity, but it also covers things that a lot of people can relate to...family issues, job issues, insecurities and more.
I honestly would recommend this book to EVERYONE. It's a sweet romance that will open your mind to new things... no matter your sexual orientation and how you identify yourself.
