Narration: Ramona Master, Mark Kamish
Length: 9 hrs, 0 mins
Remington Stringer has never been like most girls. She’s outspoken, brazen and wants nothing more than to escape the Nevadan hell hole that she calls home.
On the brink of eighteen, with a deceased mother and a well-meaning, yet absent father, she is forced to fend for herself. The only person she’s ever had to depend on is her borderline obsessive stepbrother, Ryan. But, what used to be her anchor is quickly becoming a loose cannon.
When Remi gets the opportunity to attend the best private school in the state during her senior year of high school, she jumps at the chance. Then she meets Mr. James. Ornery, aloof, and totally irresistible.
Most girls would swoon in secrecy.
Most girls would doodle his name with hearts in their notebook.
But Remi Stringer has never been like most girls.
This was my first book by Charleigh Rose and it made a complete fan out of me. The characters are vibrant, real, and relatable. The story is excruciating in the best way. It tugged at every emotion I had and had me devouring the pages as fast as I possible could. Beautifully tragic and deliciously dirty. That’s what this book is, but it’s also so, so much more.
I completely loved the characters in the book. Remi is such an awesome character. Such a great contrast between teenage angst and an old soul. Pierce is just EVERYTHING. He’s sexy, brooding and forbidden. The connection between Remi and Pierce is genuine and palpable. And don’t even get me started on the sexual tension because wow! Charleigh Rose puts a fresh spin on the student/teacher romance tripe with her special brand of likable a-hole characters, touches of humor, and a love story that feels real. Add in a few secrets and twist and you’ve got a story you can’t miss.
Narration was by done by Ramona Master and Mark Kamish. It was my first time listening to both narrators, but I enjoyed their narration. Ramona Masters did a great job as Remi. She sounded youthful without coming off as childish and brought out Remi’s vulnerability and strength. Mark Kamish as Pierce was good. Honestly, he felt a bit too old for the character which was a bit distracting, but I soon found myself lost in the character and story and so he won me over. 4 Stars.
