Noel Savino has no problems attracting women. After several failed relationships, she's more than happy to keep it casual. Sunny Chase is willing to be another notch on Noel's bedpost after a tragedy of her own.
Despite their playful intentions, they find themselves poised to fall, especially if Noel's old-school Italian mother and Sunny's cross-dressing uncle have anything to say about it. The only thing standing in their way is Noel's niece, Harper, who is also captivated by one of the Chase women. Love becomes a complicated family affair.
Robin Alexander's latest romantic comedy has all the ingredients to warm you on the inside as you slip into the fall.

I cannot get enough of this author/narrator combination. After reading just Jorie, this was a no-brainer credit spend, and it lived up to expectations and then some. Laugh out loud funny, again--you KNOW these people, you work, live, eat, sleep with them. There were several parts where I had to call my mother or my wife and quote a line to them just because they were so spot on, funny, poignant, real life. The love scenes are typical of the genre, but the story is so much more than the "usual" romance.
Once again, Robin Alexander had me LOL'ing! The humor is perfectly balanced with life. The characters are rich and deep. As I've experienced with most of the characters created and developed by Ms. Alexander, I want to be friends with them. I appreciate their perception of family and communication. I appreciate their sometimes subtle, sometimes flamboyant take on life and its nuances. Fantastic listen!!!!! that I'm sure I'll listen to several more times to come!
Delight in the journey and the struggle on the road to your dreams
Robin Alexander's 'Just Jorie' is one of my favorite Audible books and when I noticed this one in the 'New' file I jumped on it. Well let me say that this selection is no 'Just Jorie'; it's just okay, no better. There are no huge glaring deficiencies in this book or narrative, just the sense that the author took far too many shortcuts and at certain points just mailed it in.
For starters Ethan and Inez are both too broadly drawn and to use a phrase I probably use too often in doing these reviews are "sitcom characters." Can't you see them in some lame comedy line-up filling the 8:30 slot; no wait, make that the 9:00 slot; they're too many gay people and we must protect the children from the knowledge that gay people exist. Then there are those damn teens and their hormones; unfortunately due to the findings of the "Meese Commission" back in the eighties any mention or depiction of anyone under the age of 18 having consensual sex with no negative repercussions is promoting child pornography. With the age of first time sexual contact growing ever younger it just gets less and less realistic that when it comes to fiction, no one under 18 ever gets laid. I did a brief unscientific survey of friends, family and co-workers as to their age at the point of their first sexual contact. 30 of 33 people queried were under 18 and 16 of those were under the age 16. Okay sorry, I got off on another rant there, this book is pretty good and all in all this selection is definitely worth the credit if you're a fan of genre.
The humor. The story was great and you like the characters, but the humor set her books apart.
The reading, the emotions and actions are flawless with her. She does amazing readings.
Yes. It had me laughing out loud several times.
You will love the book, but the audio book is priceless.
I enjoy this author/narrator combo. The language is authentic for today. The interactions between the characters are genuine. Don't hesitate to give this a listen.
I have read many lesbian romance novels over the past year with most being same butch/fem B.S. but this book was refreshing and pleasantly written and performed. Highly suggest with not just 1 but 2 wonderful loves and their journey. Loved it!!!!!
This book was fun to listen to & funny. For me just having a complete family accept you regardless of who you loved did wonders. And of course I really loved the east coast accent. Great job by the narrator. Highly recommend.
"Lovely story and a bit different."
I read a lot of lesbian novels most of which follow the standard romance formula, but this was different and often made me smile and laugh and even brought a tear to my eye at one point.
I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to those of you who are fed up with the usual romance story formula.
