On a Tuesday

We met on a Tuesday.
Became best friends, then lovers, on a Tuesday.
And everything fell apart on a Tuesday…
Charlotte Taylor has three automatic strikes in my book: 1) She hates me. She also claims that I’m a “domineering jerk with a huge, overbearing ego.” (I do have something huge. It’s not my ego, though.) 2) She takes our mandatory tutoring sessions way too seriously. 3) She’s sexy as hell…And a virgin.
At least, those were her strikes before our study sessions started lasting longer than they were supposed to. Until one innocent kiss became a hundred dirty ones, and until she became the first woman I ever fell hard for.
Our future together after graduation was supposed to be set:
Professional football for me. Law school for her.
But she left me at the end of the semester with no explanation, and then she completely disappeared from my life.
We met on a Tuesday.
Became everything, then nothing, on a Tuesday.
And now it’s seven years later, on a Tuesday…
*This is a full length second chance romance, inspired by Adele’s “When We Were Young”
I absolutely LOVE second chance romances, and I fell in love with this one instantly…actually, when I read the synopsis. Charlotte and Grayson spoke to me then!!!
Charlotte and Grayson should never have crossed paths. Grayson represents everything Charlotte hates in a man…an over inflated ego and one who has a revolving group of women he has sex with. Grayson doesn’t date, so Charlotte definitely isn’t a girl Grayson would normally go for. However, destiny has other plans for these two, and Charlotte is Grayson’s new tutor who meets with him every Tuesday. Grayson is intrigued by her, and Charlotte can’t stand him. First, she tolerates him, Then, she allows him to be her friend. Finally, she falls in love with him, just like he falls in love with her. Unfortunately, something tears them apart. Really this is where the story begins….
The book is told after the breakup with flashbacks showing readers how they fell in love and how it went so wrong, which is a bit of a mystery!
I really enjoyed how the story unfolds. It isn’t insta-love, at least on Charlotte’s part. Grayson has a way of getting under her skin, and his charm is what I loved most about him. He really is a good guy. He had his fun, but he learned the hard way who he could trust and who he couldn’t. Charlotte is intelligent and beautiful, and is the perfect girl for Grayson. She definitely doesn’t let him get away with things just because of his popularity on campus.
Part of what makes audio books so great is when narrators bring the story alive. However, I’m pretty picky when it comes to narrators. I have to say both Erin Mallon and Joseph Discher did a phenomenal job of telling this couple’s story. They each had me engrossed in Charlotte and Grayson’s story from the beginning.
The combination of a great book, great characters, and great narrators made this a 5 Star listen for me.
