Have you ever wondered what might have been?
Gemma Dawson is at the airport, staring at two plane tickets to two different cities. Two different weddings. Two possible futures. She’s at a crossroads.
Be maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding or crash her ex’s?
Gemma’s decision, unknown to her, hinges on a delayed flight and a chance meeting. Now her life is about to go down two parallel tracks—will Gemma fly toward a life with her first love or a future with a man she’s not even met yet? THREE BOUNDLESS STARS
Stormi originally read this for the blog and rated it 5 Boundless stars. When Isley approached us about reviewing the audiobook I decided to take it since Stormi doesn’t like audiobooks and I love them. This story is reminiscent of the Gwyneth Paltrow movie Sliding doors. There are two choices that happen and two different stories with the same character that take place in different timeline/dimension. The stories are sweet, clean and sappy. Much like a Julia Roberts romantic comedy, Runaway Bride comes to mind. The theme of the stories is to follow your heart. I would have enjoyed this book more had I read it. I listen to a lot of audiobooks; I typically am listening to one every day, so I am pretty picky about narrators. A narrator will make or break the audiobook. Cook’s narration of this story didn’t flow. I could tell she was reading the story; she didn’t bring any life or zest to the characters. Her narration fell flat for me, her pacing was off, and there was no deviation from one character to the next. Overall I am giving this audiobook 3 Boundless stars. The narrator would get less, and the book would get more.
