Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Ward comes a new stand-alone novel.

The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start.

On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude in a campus bathroom.

(The ladies’ room was out of order. So, I used the men’s room. Don’t judge.)

I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting to rent a room in my parents’ house was allergic to our cat.

So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb - the British guy from the men’s room.

And so it began...my love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate-love in that order?

The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons.

Sometimes I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.

He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.

That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.

So frustrating.

And...

Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.

And hot.

He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year.

Too bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between us - for so many reasons.

I definitely couldn't fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one year.

Beautifully Fantastic

Penelope Ward has done it again, a fabulous read with all the feelings one could ask for. I have a strange new addiction to s'mores :)

Predictable.....

Penelope Ward is an amazing writer, but this one just did not hit it out of the park for me. Definitely a little disappointing. Story is cute.

Sweetness overload!

I loved this beautifully broken couple and their story. I couldn’t turn it off once it started. I know I will listen to this one over and over.

Beautiful Story & A Must Listen!

Every once in awhile there is a story that comes along and gives you "All the Feels" and Penelope Ward hit it out of the park with this novel about young love. Two characters who have their own baggage and heartache as children that find each other as adults in a fate-driven circumstance. While the story text alone is great, the narration team of Andi Arndt & Shane East completely gave a homerun performance making the words come to life. Andi is always great at turning a detached character like Teagen a space to belong and turning on all your emotions for her happiness to survive. Shane is impeccable in his delivery of not just the comedic, smart alec lines that Caleb spouts from emails & texts, but in the loss, heartbreak & falling in love moments quietly spoken. All the feels is the best statement for this novel! Definitely going into the "repeat listen" category!

Sexy and British...yes please!!!

This is definitely a serious slow burning friends to lovers romance, heart-achingly beautiful when they get there. Towards the end I just had to finish so stayed up late on this one, needed to get to that HEA!! Shane East-why I wish there were more books for you to narrate...just love him!!

Good Book

Caleb and Teagan's first encounter is the funniest part of the book, although there aren't many laughs following, it has more of a serious side when they discover they have feelings for each other they began to open up to each other about their broken past. There are some deep parts. This book was very entertaining. Great narration

What a beautiful love story

These two people have both undergone turmoil and disappointment in their young lives. An unusual first meeting triggers animosity from Teagan but Caleb sets her straight through an email conversation (which I really enjoyed) and results in a growing relationship. Lots of interesting characters and a lovely conclusion to the story. The two narrators did an amazing job of bringing the storyline to life. Deserves more than a 5 star rating. Well done Penelope.

Light and easy audio

A wonderful audio to escape with, limited drama, wonderful friendships and great characters. Caleb Yates is studying in America for a year, staying with Teagan Carroll and her family. Both Caleb and Teagan attend the same college, and after a rocky start, a friendship (with a little simmering heat in the making) is formed. The last 30% was my favourite. The first half was nice and easy with both Teagan and Caleb coming to terms with their feelings. A sweet easy romance narrated by two of my favourites, Shane East and Andi Arndt, who are the perfect Caleb and Teagan. One gripe though, why do people think all English people speak with a plum in their mouth. It isn’t so, and it can be frustrating. There are so many dialects used in England and the Queen’s English is only one of them.

Brilliant

This book and the narrators were absolutely fantastic. I loved the British-ness that came through, the sayings, the slang. Being a Brit myself made it even more funny for me so I loved the LOL moments!

A lovely read

I love Penelope’s books and whilst this book was good for me the romance in it was too slow of a burner, I fact so slow that I found that once I started to enjoy them finally getting together that the book was ended lol. The story line was good and I liked the way the author developed a strong friendship and bond between them so that no matter what happened they would always find a way back to one another.

not the best

I love this author alot but the British accents in this book are very annoying. no one from London whom lived the life the main character did would talk like that. As the book went along it became more and more irritating.
