Beach Read by Emily Henry
Beach Read is a listen that will leave you puzzled, yet more hopeless than ever. Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction, and January Andrews writes bestselling romance novels, but boy are they polar opposites. The only thing that could possibly bring them together is the literal proximity of space, in their individual run-down beach homes, attempting to pen their ways out of writer’s block. That is until they come to a deal – one that will send both of them on a journey they would have never expected for themselves, let alone each other.

Ryle is complex, just about everything about him is, but when it comes to the two of them, he has a soft spot for Lily. As she begins to question her newfound romance, creeping thoughts of her first love surface, and eventually, so does he.
