I really enjoyed this story, I just wished it would have been a bit longer. It ended kind of abruptly. I would have loved for it to have had an epilogue.

I do recommend that it be read. I love stories where the guy is younger.
Nice little short and sweet read with a spot of hot action.
Great cover cutie.

Such a sweet love story. Max is a wonderful character, sweet, sexy and young, too young for Livi but they fall in love anyway. Their time together is perfect until circumstances force them apart. Regret and yearning follow them and prevent them from moving on but the revelation of choices beyond their control, give them a new perspective of the future. I thought this was a wonderful story. Realistic and romantic with just enough angst to tug at your heartstrimgs. Though it's a short story, I did...more
livi is an woman who is in love with a the boy who she hired as her assistant, Matt :) cool story.
This one will make you cry... Just that good!
This book had all the potential to be a good had elements in it that reminded me of "The Opportunist" and "The Island". The story is told in flashbacks from the present to the past,twelve years ago. Honestly, the story line wasn't all that bad...and I thought that the characters were good if a bit cliche at times.

My issue with this book was in the typographical and grammatical errors that decorated the pages, throughout.

That, combined with how short this story was about 92 pages long....more

It was hard to rate this book merely at 3.

This story had great potential but the entire book felt more like an outline than an actual book. It is always hard for me to become emotionally vested with the character's feelings for each other when you are 'informed' about how they feel for each other from the writer rather than you coming up to your own conclusion from reading how they develop such feelings. The book starts with him interviewing for a part time job and I believe it is in the third p...more
This was a very quick and adorable read that I would recommend for anyone wanting to read something in less than an hour that gives them all sorts of warm fuzzy feelings.

I felt bad for Olivia for how Max parents treated her. I liked how Max didn't let the age difference between him & Olivia & his parents stop him from being with her. This is a nice short story I would only read once. This is the second book I read by Ciana Stone I liked this book better than All In Time.
