The Story of Us

The Story of Us by Lesley Jones

⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 Didn’t See That Coming Stars!

Synopsis

I love him, from the instant I set eyes on him when I was just 11 years old I have loved him and nothing will ever change that, he owns me, he owns my heart and he owns my body and no matter how many lies are told, no matter how many people conspire to keep us apart, despite the fame and the distance, we will find a way.

“Georgia Rae, when we made love you used to cry” … He waits for me to sing my bit. I try to swallow down a sob but I just end up singing through it…
“I said I love you like the stars above, I’ll love you till I die”

Carnage is an edgy coming of age love story that breaks all the rules and transcends the decades. Georgia and Sean’s story will stay with you long after you read the final word.
An emotional, smoking hot, gut wrenching read.

NOTE: This is part #1 of a 2 part story but can be read as a stand alone.

Review

Well this was a lovely story, albeit heart-wrenching.

Meet Georgia-Rae she is 11 years old…….She meets Sean, who is 13, and they both decide that they have met the loves of their lives and will never love anyone else again ….EVER!

Sean and Georgia become a “thing” and stay, and are very happy together, Sean is in a band called Carnage and is gigging around pubs and clubs and becoming quite a big name around the place, until they get spotted by a talent scout and they hit the big time!

The thing is, by this time Georgia is only 16 years old and is still at school, so she can’t follow him around the world, so she follows Carnage from afar and meets up with him when she can.

Sean in the mean time has got himself caught up in the rock-star lifestyle with drugs and alcohol and is getting himself into a bit of a mess.

This becomes evident one day after a huge silly mistake on Sean’s part splits the 2 lovers apart and doesn’t reconcile them until 4-5 years later.

In the meantime Georgia has met and started to have feelings again, and maybe has some real feelings for Cameron King, a big-time London crook, who knows of her family through her father.

Of course the story wouldn’t be complete without Georgia and Sean, but do they find their way back to each other?? Does Cameron stay in the picture??
will your little heart be torn out and stamped on??? Probably!!

🎧🎧 Great narration by Nikki Delgado, i went into this book completely blind so i had no idea that it was even set in the UK, She has a lovely accent and doesn’t sound like the usual posh Mary Poppins British narrators that i have become accustomed to.

Find your hankies,
