It was a good love story
The dogs episode was great and the narrator made it come to life - LMAO
They were all good
This book was refreshing and funny. Great narration and the author captures modern day love in and interesting way. Can't wait to read more.
Loved the book except for the very end. It's funny, romantic and sexy with a good story and enjoyable characters. It has a good ending except... for the last minute. The Author didn't really finish the story of Alexa and Nick. There should have been something more at the end instead of starting another book with Maggy and Michael. Hello!! You have to have that last AHHH moment which this doesn't have. Other than that it's a really good romantic comedy.
I have to say that this book was not as good as all of the reviews said it was. To me it was a real Homer Simpson "Doh" forehead slapper, I shouldn't have wasted my credit on it. The story was your typical train wreck romance novel, no surprising twists, circumstances that could never happen in real life, and of course the happy ending. It was an ok listen, if you like fluffy books that just burn time. The ending is open for this to become a series, but i personally will not be adding it to my must read list.
This book was dumb and predictable. Like another reviewer said, it's a cookie cutter romance. You know exactly what is going to happen to this couple from the very first page. I usually don't mind books like that, because it passes the time. But, the narrator really made it worse. She's reads breathily--like she's a character from Dynasty or some other over the top drama--and she sounds like she has a cold for the first 3/4 of the book. Didn't anyone else notice that? It's so odd!!
Also, parts of the book didn't make sense--why doesn't Alexa know more about Nick's life, when her best friend is his sister? Why doesn't she want Nick to know the money is for her parents house, but it's okay to think it was for her bookstore?
There are definitely far better chick-lit/romance books out there.
Probably not. Even enjoying the book a lot it's not the kind of story that I would like to listening again, the end is very predictable.
The romance between the characters, even being an arranged marriage they felt in love and they were very jealous of each other, that made the story a fun quick read with a lot of gorgeous passages.
No I haven't, but I will look for more books of this author. I just loved the way it was written, very romantic and with lots of sweet love scenes
I don't think it would give a nice movie, it had too be more deep...profound.I"m not sure of the right word to use, perhaps the story was too light. Good just to read.
I couldn't put down the book, you just want to go on and on to see what will happen in the next chapter. A very nice book the kind of romance that I love to listen.
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
This is the first book I read for this author. The story is not new, typical repeated story. Yet, I enjoyed the book. Light, sweet and entertaining. I was not WOWed, but is a good book to pass time.
Love to read and I am really enjoying audible. Fantasy and sci fi are my faves but I also enjoy period novels and historical fiction.
The main characters were annoying and argumentative. They lie and manipulate each other and then get angry because they each buy into the lies. Example the lie about what Alexa wanted the money for. She tells him she has "selfish" motives for the money instead of helping her family because she is afraid if he knows the real reason he will think more highly of her. So she convinced him she is selfish and then gets angry with him for thinking she is a selfish person
The narrator is a terrible over actor and I found her difficult to listen to. I didn't enjoy her at all. She could act on Disney nick Jr.
Not sure what the the other reviewers thought was so great about this book
This book is highly predictable and I don't think the narrator's voice matches the age of the characters. But overall it was still a good book.
I read the spin off series 1st and then started with this one... I enjoyed it a lot but not enough to keep it in my library. I do however want to hear the entire series out.
