    Description

    Happy Birthday, Daniel. I was told not to send you another text, but I never was any good at listening. I love and miss you. I always will.  

    When I lost my partner of eight years, I felt like my world was crashing down around me. In order to feel some relief from the overwhelming emptiness, I’ve found myself sending him texts every year on his birthday, even though I know he will never answer. It makes me feel like there’s a piece of him still alive, at least in my heart.  

    I’m sorry, you must have the wrong number. I apologize for not responding sooner, but I was at work.  

    That is, until someone responds to my text. Jace is charming, sweet, and everything I could ever want. But how can I accept someone new in my life when Daniel’s only been gone two years? Even so, Jace starts to consume my world. It feels like I can finally breathe as he helps me understand that my life doesn’t have to revolve around my grief.  

    Soon, I find myself laughing again as he pulls me away from the hopeless cycle I’ve been caught in, and I love spending time with him, whether it’s playing video games together or discussing our comic book alter egos. But I still need to let go of this guilt and allow Jace to show me that I can love another without replacing what I’ve lost. Jace rewrites my entire world with every word and smile he gives me, and it’s becoming harder to not give in and hand him my heart. Maybe Daniel did respond after all. 

    The Last Text is a 37k-word novella about overcoming loss, finding hope, and friendship that leads to new love.

    F-u! You made me ugly cry!

    Uugh. I love Alice Winters. Her love stories are always believable and natural. This one is such a lovely story. I wish it was a full length novel.
    But the start and end made me ugly cry.
    I think there was a sex scene? But honestly I just don't care because this is one of those stories where you can actually feel the characters fall in love and it's not forced.
    Very rarely do I award a perfect 5 but this was worth it.
    Ferraiuolo does a wonderful job as usual.

    Moving and wonderful

    I don't usually write reviews and instead just rate, but for this book I simply can't not mention how moving this was. Not only is it a wonderfully sweet romance, but the way this book deals with the mourning process just touched my core. Jace never once discounted how Merrick felt and acknowledged that Daniel would always be part of their relationship in bigger and smaller ways. All this brought to life by the amazing Michael Ferraiuolo. Thank you for sharing this with us. Just. Thank you.

    Lovely story of grief and love

    This story is one of the best about loss, grief and moving forward. There is no set length of time for grief and loss and this story shows how difficult it is but life is about moving forward and love is always worth it.

    A heartwarming story following a loss....

    First of all, I'm a fairly huge fan of anything written by Alice Winters. I saw this on Audible and added it to my library one day and just found it when I was looking for something to play.

    This is a shorter novella type story that takes us on a journey with one of the male MC's - Merrick - having a hard time dealing with the loss of his love (Daniel). He kept Daniel's name and number in his phone and would just leave texts for his former love when he was feeling lonely. The number is then passed on to a new person - as numbers generally are- and the new person (Jace) who now had this number began to respond to the texts. Jace was very honest and of course Merrick knows it isn't Daniel, but slowly but surely the two of them begin to develop a friendship.

    What I liked about this story was that it was pushy. It was a very slow burn that showed how one person can slowly but surely decide to move forward. Nothing was rushed and it felt very organic. Also, it had to help that Jace was a pretty awesome guy with a TON of patience and an overall wonderful personality.

    By the time these two find their way forward, the reader is cheering them on and feeling just as happy that they have found each other...well, at least I was.

    I listened to most of this on audio and found that I REALLY liked the narrator - Michael Ferraiuolo. I would not hesitate to listen to anything else that he happens to narrate.

    LITERALLY BALLING MY EYES OUT

    This book had me in tears practically the entire time & then the ending just released the flood gates 😭 I am sobbing in my car right now. The story was perfection, Michael F captured the characters emotions so well, & I just love how Alice Winters went about handling Merricks trauma & healing. The whole thing is just so beautiful 😭😭❤️❤️

    amazing love story

    I loved this story. The way that these two find each other, the slow way they discover each other.
    I was worried that it would be really sad but it wasn't. Not until the very end. And that was was a happy sad.
    Michael Ferraiuolo did a wonderful job with the narration.

    simply charming - goes on the relisten list

    📖 Story comment: nice easy pace, likeable characters - tugs at the heart-strings.
    This is a much 'softer' story than I've come to expect from this author and I was completely charmed by Merrick and Jace's story. My heart broke for Merrick in chapter one and I had all the warm fuzzies by the last chapter. The relationship built slowly and felt real and unforced, and the characters still had elements of the humur and snark this author does so well.

    🎧 Narrator comment: Michael Ferraiuolo does a masterful performance bringing The Last Text to life. He has good rhythm, inflections and intonations and it's easy to distinguish the characters from each other. He's poured all the emotions of the story into the narration and I was completely absorbed in the performance - this is definitely one for the "relisten" list.

    -------
    📌 Where does it fall on my personal scale? 7.5
    • 1 not my thing • 2 didn't like the narration • 3 didn't keep my attention • 4 was good, but once was enough • 5 enjoyed it • 6 will listen again if i'm in the mood for the narrator • 7 goes on the "re-listen" list [4⭐] • 8 kept me up past bed-time [4.5⭐] • 9 recommended to family/friends [4.75⭐] • 10 own it in all formats [5⭐] • 11 keep a copy with me at all times [5⭐]

    Adorable

    This was just that kind of heartwarming I read romance novels for. The relationship was believable and realistic. There was no possessive nonsense which was important in this story. And it's funny. I'm pro-snark. Perfect to fold your laundry on a rainy day and listen to this.
