The story of two friends who have known each other all their lives — falling in and out of love. Sam & Miles belong together, except every five years, there’s a hitch and they don’t end up together. Now, as they tell their story to a reporter at a momentous occasion, will they finally break the five-year curse? Can these two friends and lovers find their happily ever after?
This was a super short listen at 1 hour and 10 minutes! And this was made specifically for Audible and even referenced Audible/pod casts a couple of times. It is a couple telling their love story from age 5 to now at age 40, so it spans 35 years. They get together and then fall apart every five years. The two narrators tell the story extremely well and I never lost interest in it. But they did get a little too ‘lovey dovey’ at times for me. They definitely made it seem like they were this couple with their chemistry they had.
But then we have that unexpected ending that just tugs at your heart strings. I can’t say more except to just listen to this one!
