The narrator was fine.
How does one explain this book? It's a comedy for sure. Full of sexual innuendo and spunky banter. A little corny with a missing O (orgasm) and the falling pictures from the wallbanging but very amusing.
The characters are cute in a three's company kinda way. I wasn't sure what to think of Simon and his harem or Caroline's missing O. But I liked them both. They were adorable.
The secondary characters are cute too. The two groups of friends that can't quite get the coupling right and the cat that falls in love through the wall. Yep, lots of giggling and laughs in this.
This one feels like a sit-com with some romance thrown in the mix - a little. It's the kind of book that's not serious and not real life at all but pure entertainment. When you need to laugh, this is the book to pick up.
I downloaded bc I thought it wld be funny and racy. The story was predictable..(Hard working women meets play boy with a heart of gold that only she can access. yuck) ....the humour was lack and flat.
I have no idea. A college freshman, maybe . . .
Concept was fine, some lines were clever, but it was the same thing again and again and again. Got tired of it. Nothing there.
She did okay. I wouldn't seek her out.
The cat climbing the wall, crazy with lust because of the woman meowing next door, was a bit much . . .
The characters were terribly one-dimensional. I realize this is intended solely as fluff, fun reading, etc., but still! A waste of time.
The heroine Caroline told most of the story from her point of view, and often had me smiling or chuckling. She, the hero Simon and other characters were engaging, and we occasionally heard their points of view thru texts they sent each other
The narrator was outstanding , among the best I've heard. She distinguished voices well, and her performance of the sex scenes was compelling. I will listen to this book again.
While I wouldn't say this is maybe Molly Harper crazy funny, it's more sitcom funny. There's a little bit snark, a little bit spice, a hot tub and some baking.
Some of the past relationships of the main character seems a little too generic or forced, but clearly we don't care about those guys. The main squeeze is definitely hot in the book. The premise is, of course, but the main character meets her romantic interest by yelling at him to stop keeping her awake late at night banging on her wall and screwing half the town. From there, comedy and hijinks ensue.
I like that the author doesn't just gloss over her friends too. There's just enough built around all the characters to really get a sense of her who her friends are. I never appreciate it when an author writes the romance like the guy becomes the woman's sole purpose in life and everyone else magically disappears. So I'm glad that the supporting characters got a little love here.
The reader is rather good for this book. She manages to capture the comedic timing while still keeping in tune with the romance. There's a lot of times when I think the reader actually makes the book more enjoyable then the print version because of the way some of the innuendos written into the story.
slow and predictable
I feel her voice was too old for the part.
The man was a man-whore in the beginning and he just magically gives it all up for her.
Say something about yourself!
I agree with the people who said the book was way longer than it needed to be and also the person who said it wasn't 'hot' enough. There was so much stuff crammed into this book that didn't need to be there if you just wanted the love story between the H and h. Maybe the author should have written a prequel or something to cover all the other people in the story or just left their stories in their books.
The main H and h in the story don't even make out till well past the halfway point of the book and don't have p/v sex until the very end.
Finally, the narrator: she was ok, but by no means great. My one big problem with her was during the sexual parts, she picked up speed (which is fine to convey excitement, etc) but then you could hear her inhale these long loud breaths before she rushed out with the next line and it got SO obnoxious.
Unless you like a lot of build-up for a tepid outcome, I'd recommend skipping this one.
This was a refreshing and welcome change of pace. I loved the humor and can't wait to read more of Alice Clayton's work. A fun and amusing easy read that anyone would enjoy.
