This is my first time reading anything by Millner and Chiles. However, I became immediately drawn to the main characters, Nina Andrews and Aaron Simmons whose love story grew from their first meeting as kids and spanned into adulthood. Throughout the years, there were tears, fears, drama, and mistrust until they came full circle at loving each other again (twenty-six years in the making).

Nina came from a family where drama was the norm. The house was cluttered, siblings would argue and her mothe
I think that the audiobook version enhanced its appeal immensely. Initially, I was confused by the fact that there were 2 male narrators. But then I realized why the older male narrator was used, to momentarily look at the couple from a 3rd party's perspective. The majority of Nina & Aaron's story is told in flashbacks from the time they first met as children up to their current romantic relationship. The novel was published in 2004 so it read a tad like a historical novel only more recent conte ...more

Nina and Aaron are child sweethearts who grow up & learn to love each other throughout their adulthood as well. I did not enjoy this book because it was so cliche & I could almost predict every thing that would happen between the characters. This book felt very bland to me because it only focused on the relationship, & I didn't get to learn about the individual personality of the characters. I also did not like this story because the male character seemed sexist; for example, it felt as if all A ...more

A Love Story by Millner and Chiles follows childhood best friends as they reach a pinnacle part of adulthood. One night makes them question what would happen if they were more than just friends. Nina and Aaron's love story was not a sappy one and gave a honest portrayal of how a friends-turned-lovers relationship changes. It was a good quick read, but I can't place my finger on what was missing in the story. Aaron was a good character and I may check out what else these authors have written sinc ...more

This book was really good. I believe it could have been shorter but I still enjoyed it. I like the format of the story. The two main characters are also the authors of this story and they alternate every chapter. I love the way that it is written. This book was the first book I had read in along time and I am happy I chose it.

I really liked this book, found it in the bargain bin. It read like a screen play. Very fast read with characters you actually liked, even if they were wrong at times. shame the book didn't catch on more, it would have been a good sister piece to "Love Jones" at the movie plex.

I started this book on Aug 24th. Definitely a good read. It is as the title states. This story shows that once you cross the boundaries of friends your feelings matter every step of the way.
