    "Exceeded expectations"

    This was a cute, funny and sweet book. I didn't think I was going to like it at first but I loved it. Great romantic comedy, you'll be glad you downloaded this one.

    I am a Serial MultiTasker. Pretty much daily while I am at work I listen to Audiobooks. Some books I have listened to 3 to 5 times. Luv it.

    Story
    "I Really Needed the Laugh...."
    Would you listen to Not Another Bad Date again? Why?

    Yes I would listen again. This story was great. I didn't realize this book was a part of a series although the books are individual you learn about some of the other characters that are referenced and how they got to their "love".


    What did you like best about this story?

    At first I started listening and thought "oh my, audible screwed up this isn't the book I downloaded. It doesn't match the description at all." The book starts off strange (in a good way) and then turns out really awesome. I love how sometimes you have to go "home" to find yourself. The story (other than a few instances) seems very real, like this could happen to your best friend.


    What does Nicole Poole bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Nicole Poole made me feel what Adele was going through and what she went through in the beginning. She made my heart break and beat out of my chest with anticipation.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes this book was one I wanted to listen to all in one sitting...you want to know how it is going to work itself out and what is in store for everyone.

    "Bad Voice"

    The reader can not perform the role of a man. Horrible voice for the male. Had to stop listening to it. If the reader can not do voices well, he/she should just read the book without them.

    "Cute, very "chick lit""

    Enjoyable light read, back story with dead first wife was novel. A bit more to the story than the usual romance fare which is a plus in my opinion. Worth a credit.

    Story
    "Just too formulaic and predictable for me"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It took several start and I would shut it off after 10 minutes and go to another book. I did get through it when I turned it on at bedtime and fell asleep listening to it night after night.


    If you’ve listened to books by Rachel Gibson before, how does this one compare?

    I have read and enjoyed her other stories (not in this series). This was just flatter, just too, too predictable. Romance has a forgone ending but there was not enough freshness in the situations and character to get lost in it as I would a good story.


    Have you listened to any of Nicole Poole’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She does a GREAT job with the narration in this book. Her voices for each character are very distinct which makes dialog so easy to follow.


    Any additional comments?

    Personally, I did not enjoy this. I could anticipate every upcoming scene, every emotional up and down. I like a romance book that has more depth to the characters so that I can really get into their hearts and minds.

    "Very good"
    If you could sum up Not Another Bad Date in three words, what would they be?

    adorable Alpha male


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Zach. He works on things without working too hard.


    Have you listened to any of Nicole Poole’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not heard a story done by her. She did a great job of doing the different voices.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Story
    "I felt misled"

    This story was just fine. The narrator was okay. The story was light read predictible. I felt somewhat misled because I thought the review said it was about a woman who saw dead people and helped them find the light leading to funny interaction. That was not what I read.
