Writers & Readers: In Plain Sight
by Tiffany D. Jackson

Core Collection: Everyone Deserves a Happily Ever After
by John Charles

Listen-Alikes: Teen Romance in Two Voices
by Heather Booth

On paper, a romance told with an alternating narration like You Say It First by Katie Cotugno helps build suspense around the potential couple and allows for a view into both sides of the story. On audio, dual narrations treat listeners to a delightful interplay of voices.
