Iris After the Incident (Audiobook Excerpt) by Mina V. Esguerra

Audiobook Excerpt – Chapter 2 – Iris After the Incident by Mina V. Esguerra (feat. Rachel Coates)

Because you seemed to enjoy the first chapter of the audiobook Iris After the Incident by Mina V. Esguerra so much, we’re sharing chapter 2 with you this week. Narration is provided by the amazing Rachel Coates.

Book description:
Which moment has defined your life so far?

Whether she likes it or not, Iris’s life has been divided into two: Before the Incident, and After the Incident. Something very private was made very public, and since then life has been about recovering from being shamed, discovering her true friends, and struggling to find a new normal.

Two years into this new life and she finally connects with a guy again. He lives in the apartment down the hall, he’s hot, and he doesn’t look at her that way. He doesn’t know what happened. But he also won’t give her his name, not right away—which has to mean he’s got something to hide too.

Iris wants to start over. Should she do that with the only person who will understand, or is this the same idiotic decision that got her in trouble in the first place?
