Publisher's Summary

Ro Ro Walverstein is ready to reinvent herself. She had high hopes for her twenties, but now, three years in, nothing is turning out like she imagined. From her frumpy wardrobe and dead end job to her boring social life, each day is a letdown. When her boyfriend Sherman leaves her, Ro Ro decides it's time to take action and turn her life around.

She hires a tough-love life coach named Crystal Class to get her back on track. Crystal is older, wiser, and very pulled together. She's also a little bit unorthodox in her teaching methods. If Ro Ro can survive Crystal's extreme tactics, there's a good chance she could find herself standing on top of that elusive golden mountain of evolutionaryness that Crystal keeps telling her about. But getting up is not going to be easy.

    "Fun and engaging"

    I liked Coached so much that I've listened to it multiple times now. I found myself rooting for Ro Ro as she attempts a total life make-over. The expressive narration by Julie Kelly gave Ro Ro relatable charm and added immensely to my enjoyment of the story.

    "Coached"

    “This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”

    This is a short humorous,quirky listen. RoRo wants to redo her life. Not knowing how she hires a life coach. This is where the story gets interesting. I maybe an older person, but I can relate to 20 somethings trying to find themselves. This kept me hoping for a good outcome!



    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.

    "A diary style chick lit story"

    A diary style chick lit story about how (or how not) to better yourself.

    RoRo isn't someone I would probably hang out with, but I enjoyed peeking inside her mind to see how it ticks. I thought I was a better life coach than Crystal, but RoRo couldn't hear me. (No RoRo, just because the pop tarts have "fruit" in them, doesn't mean they're healthy.)

    I listened to the audiobook. The narrator captured the essence of RoRo perfectly and really brought her to life for me. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "This is only life-changing for RoRo"

    Coached is a chick-lit and Bridget-Jones-style novella, aimed for young adults or pre-mature new adults. Note, this my review reflect my personal preference and that the above mentioned audience might enjoy this book more than I did.

    RoRo is 25 years old and to me she is very immature. I my world you're about to be an adult at this age, but obviously not for RoRo. However, apparently RoRo knows that, because she hires a life coach to help her change a lot of things in her life. Get ready for a life-changing journey - for RoRo that is.

    I rolled my eyes many times when it came to the main character and I really couldn't see myself in her. I'm sure others can, but when listening to this I just felt I had been an adult all my life. It didn't make me laugh either.

    The book is fast-paced and we get a lot of rambling on about her immature friends, her eating habits, drinking, partying, dressing sexy, make-up, sex-talk and a lot more that didn't really matter.

    Narrator Julie Kelly had a very light voice that fitted a 16-yo and I kept seeing RoRo in this age, despite her being much older. I really couldn't get the things to match. Furthermore, Julie Kelly didn't do different voices for different characters, so I was about to give up on the story many times. I'm sure there are passages of the story I have missed because of this.
