Review: With the First Goodbye by Len Webster


It’s time to say GOODBYE.

With the First Goodbye by Len Webster is now LIVE EVERYWHERE!


Bros before hoes or so the saying goes.

However, Maxwell Sheridan threw that saying out the window the minute he hooked up with his best friend, Alex’s, poisonous ex. The moment he slept with her, he was hooked. Sloppy seconds was not his style, but she was a cruel addiction he couldn’t overcome. He thought his days of betraying his best friends were behind him. But Max learnt the hard way that history had a way of repeating itself.

That was until one moment on a bridge would change it all.

Josephine Faulkner is struggling. Mentally, physically, and emotionally. Life has caused her to grow up. Gone are the wild days, black hair, and dating men her ambassador father would never approve of. But juggling work and life has meant that university hasn’t been high on her priority list.

When Maxwell Sheridan finds her on a bridge, dropping small stones into the lake, a friendship and connection between them blooms.

He offers to tutor her.
She offers him her compassion.

But their undeniable attraction and friendship will be tested.

And her name…
Andrea Wallace.

With the First Goodbye will be the first of two installments in the saga of Maxwell and Josephine.

My Review

4.5 Stars!

With the First Goodbye was my first read from Len Webster, and oh what a ride it was. From the blurb, I got the feeling it would be an emotional one, but never expected it to impact me the way it did. I read this on a road trip home and was completely consumed by it.

Also, the angst! If you’re like me and like angst driven stories that bring you to the brink of throwing your kindle, then give this book a try. There were multiple times throughout the book that this almost occurred.

“Because he knew worst things in the world existed than being adored by Josephine Faulkner. In fact, she was the better thing in the world. His world.”

I absolutely adore Josephine and Max. They both come from tough, heartbreaking situations. I loved witnessing their relationship morph from strangers to friends, and eventually more. The story Len crafts for them is breathtaking—her writing, simply mesmerizing. And the end to this book was gut-wrenching—I’m ready for part two!
