29-year-old wild, carefree, and brutally sarcastic Amanda Bishop thought her three rules for dating would weed out unworthy suitors. And they did, until she met Shane Reed, the smart-ass, sexy-as-sin CrossFit coach who pushes all her buttons. He's the man she loves to hate. But when the hate begins to ebb away and is replaced by feelings she can't handle, Amanda hides behind her rules. Will the electric chemistry she feels with Shane allow her to get beyond a painful past, or will she push him away with her rules? Rules that make her the ultimate Sex Snob....

I didn't read the print, so I can't say.
This book came out of nowhere to wow me. I'll admit to being skeptical at first, assuming this was another version of Sex and the City, complete with a revolving door of men who don't measure up (get it, measure up?). But it was such a fun read—and by read I mean listen, as I listened to it on Audible—with its witty banter, steamy sex, and fast pace. This is a great beach read or sitting-by-the-pool read.
For audio lovers, I will add that at first, I was a little put off by the narrator's style. She made the heroine sound a bit whiny and very snobbish at first—I know, "snob" is in the title, but no one really likes an unlikeable snob—but you really have to give it (and the narrator) a chance to bring it all into perspective. The story, and the heroine, are really very funny.
CRAZY SEXY COOL
Loved this book
JUST THE RIGHT STUFF!!!
Right amount of humor
Right amount of passion
Right amount of real
Big fan mad it ended
So just finished Sex Snob. Wasn't sure of the narrator at first but she grew on me and wasn't hard to listen to as I got used to her. As for the story.... I really enjoyed it. It was funny and witty and flowed really well. You couldn't help but love the characters and there was the right amount of sex. I loved it. Now I want to read more of this authors books. It's not often you get a book that makes you laugh with such clever wit and comebacks or that has an emotionally damaged heroine who isnt weak or a pussy. She was strong and intelligent and someone I would love to be friends with lol
Where do I even start with Sex Snob by Elizabeth Hayley... I had the ebook sitting on my kindle, as is the way with amazon I 1click continuously when a blurb or cover grabs my attention with every intention of reading the book I've just bought when I get a spare couple of hours between arc reviews and beta reading. I was offered an audio copy for review, not realising Sex Snob was already sitting pretty on my kindle, I jumped in the car after work yesterday after work, pressed play and was instantly pulled into Amanda's world, this author duo grabbed me by the collar on the very first page, I was invested in their, I wanted to know more, I NEEDED to know more about not just Amanda, but Lily, Steph and Danielle, more about Kyle and Shane... I was desperate for every little scrap of information Elizabeth Hayley would bestow upon me.
Amanda is every bit of the strong, independent modern woman, she's got a good job, is financially stable, she's sassy, sexy and sexually liberated, she knows exactly what she wants and what she doesn't and she's not willing to back down on what she knows she deserves. Amanda's surrounded by best friends, roommate Lily, and bff with benefits Kyle, great work friends Danielle and Steph. Her life is good, she spends her days at work with her pompous arse of a boss, Mr Bader, and her nights being ridiculed by her arrogant, cocky and yet incredibly sexy crossfit trainer Shane. Girls nights, financial freedom, sex with no strings, life is good for Amanda.
Sex Snob is very much Amanda's vehicle for growth and development, she has her reasons for living by her life by a certain set of rules but the more time she spends with the cocky bastard who's got her body in better shape than it's been in years she might just have a reason to re-examine those rules she lives by.
I use the text to speech function on my KF while I'm driving only, it's monotone and robotic but I can deal with it as it's only used when sitting in the car to and from work.I read quickly, very quickly to be honest, and so I don't tend to buy the audio companions that often, in some cases I've found that audio books with poor narration can actually ruin a book for me, their voices invade my mind and I struggle to hear the voice I originally imagined in my head, in the case of Sex Snob the narration only made my reading experience better.
Amanda's voice was exactly what I expected, her voice held both a youthful exuberance and snarky lilt, every pause, every gasp, every moment of inner monologue, every nuance of the authors writing was caught perfectly.
My only regret is that I had Sex Snob sitting on my kindle for so long without picking it up, I've 1clicked the series that preceded this one because I need more. Sex Snob had the perfect balance of snarky wit, heart and sizzling heat, Amanda may be a little unorthodox in her approach to life and love but she captivated me from the moment she started her story, I can see this book on my reread list, it left me feeling lighter after reading it, the perfect tale for those times when you just want to smile, when your stuck dealing with a book hangover that just wont go away. This may have been my first book by these authors but it certainly won't be my last, I loved every single second of this story, and I can't wait to sink my teeth into everything else they have penned.
I received a copy to review and let me tell you I flove it Amanda is a sex snob and she has rules but she broke them with Shane omg Shane is one hot hunk. I loved the interaction between all the characters. is a story not to be missed.
This book is about Amanda 28 who is an accountant and Shane 30 who is a cross fit teacher. Amanda has rules she will not break due to a past relationship. She is very funny and witty and keeps you laughing thru out this book.
I love Shane, he is cocky and arrogant, but he knew what he wanted and went after it. I do have to say i was just as in love with Kyle and was a littler upset Kyle and Amanda did not end up together.
The sex in this book was HOT HOT HOT!! But it was kinda weird with the whole friends with benefits thing, it made me wish they would end up together.
This books started off strong, but i wish it we saw more of the ending. I felt like I did not not get a chance to enjoy the relationship. But over all this is a GREAT book and should be put in your cart :) Cant wait for the next book!!
I really liked this book! I LOVED the humor! OMG I listened to the audiobook at work...so there I was in my mostly silent office full of other people quietly typing away...and then you hear me busting a gut or snorting with the effort of trying to hold it in.
The narrator is Stephanie Rose. At first her voice just wasn't really working for me. Almost like her voice didn't fit the character. But after 30 mins or so, I had gotten completely used to it and thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the book.
It was steamy, but not TOO steamy (as if there is such a thing). If you are looking for a fun and sexy read, I would recommend that you give this book a try!!!

Overall I greatly enjoyed Sex Snob. It was the first book I've ever listened to. I had a hard time getting past the reader's voice (I have a thing with certain voices). The more I got into the story the less I noticed the voice. It was great listening to a book while in the car as I'm a traveling therapist and spend more time in my car than in my office. I will definitely be listening to more books in the car and reading more from Elizabeth Haley.
I am a self proclaimed book junkie and Audible Addict.
Amanda the main character's witty banter was enjoyable. It reminded me of all the things I loved about Sex in the City and Friends combined into one story.
Amanda has a wonderful sense of humor. At times I felt frustrated by her actions, then cheered her on when I felt she was making the right decisions. The same way I'd feel with one of my girlfriends.
She breathes life into the words, it felt like I was part of the story.
The opening drew me in and I wanted to hear more.
This book surprised me. At first, I was very annoyed by the main character. I just didn't care for the way she judged everyone else around her ("snob" is the perfect way to describe her). But despite her personality, I found myself gaining sympathy for her. She reminded me of many "almost 30-year-olds" I know who overcompensate because they're not already married with kids. Those of us a little older than that know it's totally fine to be that age and still single, but I think it's natural for women to approach 30 feeling as though they somehow haven't ended up the way they thought they would. Amanda came across that way to me, which is why I loved the ending so much. She had to realize what was missing in her life, and the journey she went through to get there was thoroughly entertaining!
