    Inhaltsangabe

    Sutton Spencer's ideas for her life were fairly simple: finish graduate school and fall in love. It would be a lot simpler if she could pinpoint exactly what she should do when she graduates in less than a year. Oh, and if she could figure out how to talk to a woman without feeling like a total mess, that would be great, too.

    Charlotte Thompson is very much the opposite. She's always had clear steps outlining her path to success with no time or inclination for romance. Her burgeoning career in politics means everything to her, and she's not willing to compromise it for something as insignificant as love. Fleeting, casual, and discreet worked perfectly fine.

    When they meet through a dating app, it's immediately clear that they aren't suited for anything more than friendship. Right?

    Contains mature themes.

    Gänsehaut und Schmetterlinge

    Natürlich sind einige Aspekte der Handlung vorhersehbar oder etwas unrealistisch... aber selten hat es eine Geschichte geschafft, dass ich die Luft anhalten musste, weil ich so mitgefühlt habe.
    Sehr klar gezeichnete Charakter, jede Menge Emotionen, wunderschöne, facettenreiche Liebesszenen, leichter Humor und eine Prise "Toleranz und Akzeptanz sind ausbaufähig".

    Adorable but foreseeable

    This was a really adorable story albeit a little bit cheesy and foreseeable. I really enjoyed listening to it.

    The narrator did a good job, although it annoyed me a bit that there was some notable inconsistency in the voices used for the characters.

    Altogether it was an enjoyable read/listen.

    Wow

    👉🏻 Wow. Just wow. I think I will need a few days to process this book. It was a rollercoaster until the end and I had to shed a tear or two—no, honestly, I was actually kind of devastated because it gave me so many feels. With almost 630 pages or 21 hours of listening time, it transports you into the world of 2 wonderful characters.

    💡 But first things first. In the forefront are 25-year-old Sutton Spencer, a literature student at NYU, and 28-year-old Charlotte Thompson, deputy major of New York, who is running for the House of Representatives.

    Sutton is naïve, sometimes awkward and shy, but incredibly amiable. Throughout the story, her character develops the most for me, and that’s very visible. I wasn’t that fond of her at first, but eventually fell completely in love with her. Charlotte, on the other hand, is in the midst of her life and knows exactly what she wants, but when Sutton enters her life, she has to question her ideas about the future. I just loved them both in combination. I think they fit together so perfectly because of their differences—they complement each other.

    I found the side characters annoying in parts, to be honest. I don’t know if that was intentional or just me. But except at the end, I didn’t find them driving the story. Overall, it doesn’t matter because the actions between Sutton and Charlotte drive the whole narrative anyway.

    The story is a mix of friendship, romance, passion and politics. I liked the political part because it makes it stand out from other love stories. Of course, a story about “friends with benefits” screams conflict and drama, which never actually occurred up to a certain point. The characters never really had any miscommunication or arguments, and if they did, it was very short-lived. They base their entire relationship with each other on honesty and communication. In the end, I thought the author was breaking with that, which ultimately didn’t turn out that way.

    ♥️ I absolutely loved the ending—especially the epilogue. I wish it had been longer, and we had learned even more, but that’s complaining on a high level.
    I can easily recommend this story heartily. Yes, the length of the book is daunting, but the plot is entertaining and draws you in. And... believe me, some action between the two is worth it. 😉

    toll geschrieben

    gut geschriebene Geschichte über 2 Frauen, die trotz/wegen ihrer unterschiedlichen Art ergänzend zusammenpassen. Ich habe es sehr genossen es zu hören.

    etwas langatmig und vorhersehbar

    Geschichte ist jetzt nicht sonderlich originell, Beschreibungen ziehen sich alle etwas, zum Teil völlig unnötig, Charaktere sind leicht nervig, bis anstrengend. Obwohl die Leserin durchaus bemüht und begabt ist, wirkt die Wahl der Stimmen in einigen Szenen völlig uncharakteristisch. Habe nach einigen Stunden aufgehört zu hören.

    21h of Audiobook bliss

    This is my first book by Haley Cass and boy what a start. Very careful created characters with just the right amount of backstory. while listening to it i felt cheerfull to have found it. This book containd themes like politics, toaster oven, dating site and friends with benifits.

    Narration: This audiobook is narrated by Lori Price. As always she does a fantastic job. She brings the characters lo life with her voice.
    With 21h it’s quit a long audiobook, but it is 21h of bliss.
