"It was useless. I felt branded beneath my skin by a girl who left without even saying goodbye."
When Will Price was assigned a partner for a sixth grade class project he had no idea she would become his best friend. After years of friendship, she eventually became so much more. Then, one day she left with no explanation.
Will’s life shattered right before his eyes and he was left alone to pick up the pieces. Floundering, Will must figure out a way to carry on, to find a way to exist without her.
Seven years later, a chance encounter leaves him desperate to get her back. He has one week to make her his again. Not everyone gets a second chance with the love of their life and Will is determined to never lose her again
Her was a delicious sequel to the first book in this series, Him. Listening to this book is like re-reading a favorite novel told from another characters perspective – genius! In the first book, Him, the love story between Sarah & Will is told from Sarah’s perspective. In Her, Will tells his side of the story. Missing pieces fit in. Questions are answered. And as a reader you can’t help but fall even more in love with Will (I know, if you just read the first book that doesn’t seem possible, but it is!)
Her is a beautiful wrap up of Him and is presented differently. This story starts in the past, builds to the present day and then continues past where Him finished off. For readers who always want to know “What happens next??” this book provides the answer! Being told from a guy’s perspective, this novel is more steamy than the first. Definitely recommend listening to this one without others present ;)
Carey Heywood does an outstanding job writing Will’s perspective. In this novel we find out more aobut his mom, his relationship with Sarah’s family, and what happened in the seven years while Sarah was gone. We also learn about what happens going forward after they are forced back into contact at Brian’s wedding… it’s exciting!
Christian Fox brings Will to life with his narration. He is exactly how I imagined Will to sound. His narration is spot on and he is a pleasure to listen to. I’m going to keep an eye out for more of his audio books.
For anyone who enjoys romance novels, I highly recommend both books in this series.
