✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ The Boy and His Ribbon by Pepper Winters
The Boy and His Ribbon
Ribbon Duet, Book 1
By: Pepper Winters
Narrated by: Will M Watt & Hayden Bishop
Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
First, Yay for duet narration! If ever a book deserved the full immersion that comes with duet narration, it would be The Boy and His Ribbon, and narrators Will M Watt and Hayden Bishop do a phenomenal job on this equally phenomenal book.
I knew going into this one that it's a duet, so I expected a cliffy, but dang, I didn't expect that! It's a good thing I like my phone because I was dangerously close to throwing it across the room when the book finished, and the playback switched to the Audible information about it. I mean, really?! This whole book is an emotional rollercoaster from the very first line to the last, and I spent a lot of time just wanting to hug both Ren and Della. I also wanted to shake the daylights out of them a few times. What I didn't want to do was hit the pause button. Pepper Winters is crazy talented, and I couldn't get enough of these characters and their world.
Admittedly, parts of this one do require some suspension of disbelief, but that didn't hinder my listening experience in the least. The thing about this book is even when something was a little over the top or something that would be eye-rolling in most cases, it didn't have that effect here. It felt real, and as I was listening, I had no doubt that these things were happening to these characters.
So, to sum it up, this is a book that needs to be read, listened to - whatever your medium of choice. I really wouldn't call it a romance - I suppose women's fiction, maybe? I'm struggling to find a genre I feel like this fits into coming-of-age and women's fiction is about as close as I can get. It's certainly a bit dark, and the love story touches on the taboo. Regardless of the genre, I'd easily recommend this one. It's certainly a book I'll be thinking of for some time to come and one I'll be discussing every chance I get.
