After getting unfairly downsized, Tommy meets April, the girl of his dreams, when she accidentally runs his bicycle off the road. They seem made for each other. But when he over-indulges in taking prescription medication for a cycling injury, he comes down with an unusual condition for a man - yeast infection.
Tommy has to choose between hiding his embarrassing situation to prepare for a big race, or coming clean with April to grow their budding relationship. The dilemma threatens to derail not only his new romance, but also his once in a lifetime shot at making it to the pros.

Rather than having "actors" portray each voice, I'd have one person do all the narration. At some points the sound was tiny.
one person do all the narration
the quality was a bit tiny. sounded like they were in a cavern
yes, it was cute
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review
The audio quality was different depending on the character speaking....particularly Tommy's character. If I could change that, it would be to have consistent sound quality throughout.
This is my first book by Will Lewis.
The story was difficult for me to follow, at first, due to the heavy accent. After a few minutes, however, I was able to follow the story line just fine.
It was worth it. I love audiobooks and this was an "easy" and carefree storyline.
My favorite part of the book was the pharmacy scene. I could picture the scene in my mind and literally laughed out loud!
Cute story! I'm a sucker for a Romantic Comedy....Also, I'm around cyclists quite a bit so I can appreciate the competition between bikers. Good vs evil! The story follows a classic story arc, it was fun and funny to listen to!
It was an adorable escape! It takes an embarrassing issue and turns it into an adorable love story. It's super endearing listening to Tommy and April start to reveal themselves to each other and fall in love.
Her accent is wonderful and wry and relaxing! You can easily escape listening to her voice.
I really found it enjoyable...there were several points I giggled...In particular Tommy's cluelessness about "Canada." And the incident at the drugstore....The embarrassment just went on and on....HA!
Adorable story, I may not have picked it up to actually read, but it was so sweet to listen to!
Tommy Has a Yeast Infection for Females may not be number one, but still would rank among the top audio books that I've heard due to the intuitive story line.
Off hand I cannot think of a specific tale that I find Tommy Has a Yeast Infection aligns with. However, it does follow the precedential mold of romantic comedies that came before it: A guy wants a girl, there is an obstacle keeping him from the girl, he does not confront the obstacle head on or is dishonest about the obstacle with himself or others, s*** hits the fan, she forgives him, and they live happily ever after.
This is my first performance by Anna Tyrie. Although I believe as a performer she did a great job, I did slightly wonder the significance of the accent she chose to use in the narration.
The most moving point in the book is in the final race when disaster befalls his childhood bully, and Tommy is faced with the choice of finishing the race to take the gold or to help someone who would not have reciprocated the same selfless act.
Very cute story, almost meant for the big screen!
Yes, I enjoyed the story and while it was clear first time around it would be fun to revisit some months down the line.
Tommy was great - initially I thought he was going to be a bit of a one dimensional "loser" type but he quickly became more complex and interesting. He is human and, while mostly fallible, he is kind and genuine and switched on in his own way.
No, but I certainly will. She was easy to listen and kept the pace of the story and remained unobtrusive to it while ensuring it was interesting to listen to. Her voice kept a great variety in it and was never boring or predictable. I thought using a different accent as the narrator helped separate her from the characters too.
Of course, the moment when Tommy is riding up the last inclines of the final race and feels he can't carry on and sees April standing there and she smiles her "genuine" smile.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story and never wondered when it would was going to end. The pace kept up throughout and the combination of a great cast and narrator kept me in the story all the way through. All characters were really well played and well differentiated. The story was funny and uplifting. I look forward to the next one!
One of the Best
Her northern British accent
A Different Kind of Yeast
Really enjoyed this. It was really funny and well done. Glad Tommy got the girl in the end!
Although I prefer a more heavy duty drama, I would recommend this for friends who like light and entertaining comedy fare.
It's somewhat reminiscent of the old school romantic nutball comedies where the Nice Guy with the best of intentions is hit by one disaster after another - the embarrassment of a clinic visit; a weirdo body painter friend; a biking competitor who has it in for him; an 18-wheeler crushing his beloved racing bike and a rocky road with the girl of his dreams who knows a lot about the birds and bees but doesn't know if she trusts Tommy when she inadvertently catches him in a compromising position with a naked woman.
Sure, I might give it a try. Part of what I'm interested in is hearing how multiple voices can be utilized in an AudibleScript making it more like a film than a 'normal' AudioBook read by a single narrator. I've co-written a screenplay and am toying with the idea of having it performed by voice actors, so hearing this was very 'educational'..
Great job! She does a very clean, professional job, although I first found it a little jarring having one distinctively regional British voice weaving its way through a story full of American personalities.
Sometimes a Close Shave can be just the beginning of your problems...
The variety of voices help propel the story right along and make it much easier to differentiate the characters than the standard AudioBook with a single voice narration.
Quality voices capture the crazy humor of this story. Refreshingly not the norm. Cycling fans should be tickled. Sections of language is definitely rated "R".
Her lovely British accent is easy on the ears.
I could only image the painful moment when Tommy made the initial "cut". Ugh!
Nice selection easily completed during that long commute to and from work on any day.
Offhand, I cannot think of anything.
Experienced, professional, precise
Not for me. I just did not find it that interesting.
Format just did not seem to flow; it seemed rather choppy.
I loved the way the play was brought alive by the lots of different actors as opposed to just one person. The interraction was great and the comedy timing was very good.
Yes, and so I did. I felt so sorry for the character Tommy with his "problem" and how everything just seemed to go from bad to worse. I needed to see if he had a happy ending so I put it on in the car and ended up carrying it around with me until i'd finished it.
It was really good to hear the interview about the book afterwards and find out the reason behind the making of the book and also the reason for recording it the way it was. Would definitely recommend this Audible Script
