I loved the dialogue between the hero and the heroine. They were both very sharp and witty. The dialogue reminded me of old movies like "His Girl Friday" with Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell.
I liked the slightly overweight heroine and the slightly caddish (Is that a word--lol?) hero. Their journey to discovering that they liked, lusted, and then loved each other was one of the best that I've ever read in print. It seemed like it could really happen which is essential to a contemporary love story. The narrator's read was very good and I find myself turning to this book, out of the hundred+ audiobooks I own, for a repeat listen now and again. It is always nice to like the way one of your favorite books is being read.
This was my first book by this narrator, but I've read many of Cruise's books. In this particular book, Cruise does something very interesting with some long, unbroken streams of internal thought in paragraphs. The narrator handled these really well and I was very impressed by her interpretation of the unique writing style in this book. I would definitely buy other books with this narrator.
I would have to give a movie tag line some thought. I really liked the hero's comments about how kissing the heroine felt like "falling into her". So it would probably be something along that line.
I am an author myself. Because of that I am very picky about what I give my time to concerning reading and listening. I am also very selective about reviewing any kind of book. When I do, it's because the book has a special value to me. This book always brings a smile to my face and gives me a laugh. I bet it would do the same for you if you like romantic comedy.
