After she survives the bachelor auction, Sabine vows she is never doing another favor for a friend. This is especially true for favors that involve spending large sums of money and buying men whose last names she doesn't even know. In 20 bachelors, Sabine maybe expected to find several Davids, Mikes, or Johns. But what were the odds of two Todds? And now what is she going to do on a date with the wrong one?

I am a very avid reader; however, I would say this audio edition is equally comparable. I definitely do not feel that way about many audio books. When adding in the benefits of being able to listen while traveling or doing other activities, this audio book would come out on top.
The heroine is a middle-aged, strong and intelligent woman, who through unusual circumstances, is pursued by a handsome younger man that happens to be a TV personality. Sabine doesn't know why Todd would be interested in an older woman who is a few pounds over-weight (in her opinion). Todd sees an intelligent, mature woman with nice curves that he is attracted to. This is a lovely romantic story with many challenges and emotions to be overcome by both characters.
When Sabine was to be a guest on Todd's TV Chef cooking show and she came out in an appealing RED dress accented by RED shoes. Todd's mesmerized reaction. Can you say "awestruck" or "jaw-dropping"!!!
Yes, the narrator was better than what I expected. She had a pleasant voice and excelled at changing pitch, tone and tempo so that the story flowed uninterrupted and was easy to follow. I did listen to the complete book in one sitting.
This is an enjoyable light, romantic story that I would recommend to anyone. The narrator in this audio edition is excellent and for those who are new to audio books it would be a great first time experience.
This book brings out the beauty of the Hawaiian Language in this super sexy romance. It has just the right amounts of humor and hotness.
Allyson Johnson reading the story with her beautiful grasp on the Hawaiian language brings out the story in a way that I could never have interpreted it on my own. It made the story that much more enjoyable.
This is the first time I have heard her reading, but it will not be the last to be sure.
The story was real and down to earth while being cute & funny
The French toast breakfast
This book made me laugh several times
One of the reasons I loved this audio book so much is I finally know how all those Hawaiian words sound now

I loved that Sabine was true to herself and didn't allow herself to be carried away by the very romantic and sweet talking, Todd aka The Sexy Chef.
I loved that Todd was a man who immediately saw Sabine's worth and was not discouraged by her rebuttals.
This was the first book I've listened to that was narrated by Allyson Johnson.
Both. The story made me laugh and cry, easily catching me up in the emotional struggles of the characters.
THE WRONG TODD by Donna McDonald is romantic, funny, serious, heartwarming, and written in a very realistic way. A rare story of an older woman being given a second chance at love after being left by a cheating husband. I loved that Sabine was true to herself and didn't allow herself to be carried away by the very romantic and sweet talking, Todd aka The Sexy Chef. I loved that her jerk of an ex gets his. I loved that Todd was a man who immediately saw Sabine's worth and was not discouraged by her rebuttals. Her many rebuttals. He knew she was the woman for him and wasn't afraid to prove himself to her... or wait until she was ready to accept his attentions. The story made me laugh and cry, easily catching me up in the emotional struggles of the characters. The narrator was very good and the story excellent. I liked it so much I've listened to it three times already. 4 stars.
I enjoyed this delightful romance and would definitely recommend this purchase. It was so real to life that I would like to meet these people at a party. The narrator did a great job and was a pleasure to listen to.
The heroine with her serlf deprecating humor.
The first date with the dessert spoon. It is the beginning of the romance. Also the auction.
The relationship with his grand mother.
Great read, great author!
The premise is very cute, and Jennifer Crusie could have made a great romp out of it. Unfortunately Donna McDonald turned a great concept into a mediocre manuscript.
Sabine is likeable, but not adorable. Todd is likeable but not believable. The voice the narrator created for him sounds as if she is trying to affect a foreign accent. Hey, Hawaii is part of the United States. His voice does not need to sound like English is his second language.
The twist in the drama is set up so that Todd must be willing to risk exposing his deepest vulnerability to win Sabine, but when it plays out there is no tension. There is nothing in the performance that give us reason to believe that Todd is really risking anything important.
This book is okay, but don't go into it with expectations of a great romp.

The Wrong Todd was one of the best narrated book I have listened to.
It was soothing and a morale booster.
Yes!!! I didn't think it could be better, or that I would enjoy it more, but I did!!!
The pronunciation of the Hawaiian words brought totally different pictures to my mind than when I read the print version!
Knowing how to pronounce the Hawaiian words and the huskiness of her voice really made this book come alive for me!!!
YES!! Unfortunately, I don't get paid to listen to books, so I had to put it aside for 9 hours at a time!!!
Highly recommend the audible version of this awesome book!!!!!!
