I have almost 100 books in my audible library that I've listened to, most of them romances, and this is the first time that I've felt compelled to write a review. This book was delightful and funny. SO much different than the majority of the books in my library. Most books, while entertaining when you're listening to them, will be quickly forgotten once they're over. Not so with this one!
The author really takes the time to develop the relationship between the main characters. For me, it's refreshing that they aren't meeting and falling in love in a matter of days... That seems to happen a lot in romance novels. I think that it makes the characters more relatable that they seem to take some time to get to know one another. Its not an "I saw you across a crowded room and have to have you now" situtation. I mean, how often does that really happen? But i digress... The way that the characters in this book banter back and forth had me laughing out loud at times and reminded me of the way that I talk with my best friend. This is smart, engaging writing and I can't wait to discover more from this author. Can't recommend this one more!
It had some comedic parts that had me smiling.
Simon. He was charming.
I got a little tired of Clive the cat and hearing about the missing O.
Haven't read the print version. The audio version however is awesome!
Caroline of course! She had the "bangin" nerve to face him and go for it!
Oh she is wonderful! Her presentation actually makes me want to listen to this book again!
Caroline, Her inner thoughts are so funny.
I recommend this book to everyone! Great story , Great performance and I am still laughing at some of the parts I can remember. Gonna listen to it again!
Loved the comedy in this book. I was seriously laughing out loud during my drives to and from work while listening to this book. There were a few gaps in the story for me, but they weren't so terrible that I couldn't over look them.
This book was totally worth the credit. :) I would LOVE to see more from this author.
Yes. This was like watching a great rom-com. Fun, forgettable, and very entertaining. I would listen again because the writing and the narration was simple fun! Nothing heavy here .
I love angst, and these characters had some very minor heart wrenching that I enjoyed.
I always love the protagonists best. I honestly didn't love her voice for Simon, but I still enjoyed the read.
I bought this audiobook because it was a bargain, and I was pleasantly surprised. I haven't read or listening to much in the "chic lit' category as a disclaimer! I felt like parts of the story were very contrived: especially Caroline's two best friends, who were caricatures at best and one dimensional buzzing gnats at worst. I thought some parts of the story were creative like the texting logs. I would recommend this to someone who enjoys a good, sexy romance.
Wallbanger was the best. I wish they really made men like him!
The narrator's performance was probably my favorite part of this audiobook. She didn't hold back! It all came together in the end in a frenzy of breathy, sexy moaning.
I could see this being a romantic comedy with a N17 rating.
I was looking for something light to listen to between some of my more serious, darker reads. This fit the bill perfectly! The narrator has a great voice and she really got into character! This book had many parts where I found myself laughing out loud. The build up to the "good part" seemed maybe slightly unrealistic, but I wasn't expecting it to be too real. After all, it wouldn't be a good summer escape if it was too realistic, right? The author's writing style was very creative and the first person narrative didn't annoy me as it sometimes does. Overall, for what it's meant to be- it's a lovely book! I will be looking for more from this author again in the future. Also, the narrator did a great job and I hope to listen to her again soon!

There was no real excitement in the book for me......I think the best part was at the cabin! It wasn't a bad book, just nothing really jumped out for me....nothing separated this book from the other "average" romance books that I have read out there.
