Also by This Author. Having been through a divorce myself, it just doesn’t work like that. Books by Gerri Hill. Rich girl was just too willing to ruin her own life by not living her own life.
Her first published work came in with One Summer Night. But even years later, on every occasion the two ladies interact as adults, there’s still a lot secenteen sizzling sexual tension. When the characters are younger, they gave off this mysterious vibes about herri Madison particularly, perhaps because it was in Shannon’s PoV in the first halfmaking readers more curious and excite to discover their actions, reactions, and train of thoughts toward their love interest.

But it also has highlights. Which I feel sadder for Shannon’s mother as Shannon doesn’t visit her often to avoid running into Madison. Sep 07, Just a man’s point of view rated it it was amazing Shelves: At Seventeen is an easy read as swventeen of Gerri Hill’s books are. All in all a very enjoyable read!
But only when they’re alone. I love the courage and strength Madison found and the bonds she had created despite never really learning how to do this from her own family. In first part, these are glimpses of Shannon and Madison falling in love and the subsequent falling out and their rare encounters. I went from wanting to yell at them, to crying for them, to cheering hiill them all throughout the story.
I’ve found for audiobooks, if I get bored and I drop an audiobook quicker than if I was reading it. I got so spoiled by Annabeth Albert including characters with various diets in her stories that I was really missing it last few books, so, finally!
Want to Read saving…. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item? In this seventedn, I was more interested in the characters’ love life when they were young instead of when they got older. The whole first part of the book is Shannon relating the story of her first love to her best friends before she moves back to her home town. Losing a first ihll is heartbreaking…. Sometimes life takes us places we never thought we’d go, and this enjoyable story follows the road of unrequited love between two women, both afraid to take a chance that maybe, just maybe, following their heart might finally start them on the journey they have both been waiting all their lives to take.
Now adults, they meet again. She is a very talented author, with a lot to offer the reader; however just looking for that special read that I know she can write.
At Seventeen – Gerri Hill – Lesbian Reading Room
Liked the seventeenn delivery: Aug 25, Amy rated it really liked it Shelves: I love the idea that true love exists and survives time and att. Years later with an ailing mother and a new business afoot, she returns to her home town to find out that true love never really disappears… Sevventeen, these women were madly in love, the chemistry of these two characters just emanated off the page, to the xt I actually thought at one point that Gerri Hill had to know these characters in real life.
Hill’s talent as a story teller. Their story is beautiful, and it’s all about breaking free from what people expect from you, and letting yourself be happy. From the wedding until they are in their late 30s, they rarely see each other. I love the Characters but she didn’t describe them well the only thing that I’ve known to their physical features was Shannon is Brunette with dark eyes then Madison is Blonde with blue eyes and that’s all.
I loved Alice too! The rest of the time, because of their too-diverse social standing, they live in their own respective social worlds and pretend the other one doesn’t exist. This may have been one of the sweetest stories about first love th I listened to the audiobook version of the story. But every interaction, since they were fourteen on, is sexually driven. Well written, good storyline development and very close to truth with some of the decisions and thought getri one makes when leaving a marriage, coming to terms with sexuality and the courage needed to make eeventeen complete change.
I don’t usually enjoy stories like this.
Madison is sometimes very frustrating and annoying how can she deny herself the happiness of being with the love of her life? Customers who bought this item also bought. When both girls meet again, years in the future, the sparks still fly.

I’m at a point in my life where I just don’t want to read about teenagers having sex and there’s a lot of that in this book. I was rooting for Shannon and Madison throughout the whole book! Preview — At Seventeen by Gerri Hill. The truth is I really felt for them.
Of course Shannon runs into Madison, because Alice has become like a mother to her and grandmother to her genius son, Ashton. Showing of 71 reviews.
I wanted to like it more than I did. Otherwise, I’m glad all the storylines were resolved and we had a happy ending.
