    "Suspend Disbelief and it Works"

    This is a lighthearted contemporary romance, which has a few unbelievable moments, but is still really good over all. I won't give any spoilers, but the characters can be annoying at times, but if you are looking for something light and distracting, then it fits the bill. I enjoyed it enough to get book 2 which I also enjoyed, maybe more then this one. I will get book three when it comes out as well. If you as looking for something great- maybe take a pass- but if you want light, fun romance to fill some time then I recommend it.

    "Read Don't Listen"
    Would you try another book from Mara Jacobs and/or Emily Beresford?

    Definitely not if read by Emily Beresford. Her male voices were awful. They all sounded the same, and did not sound male at all. I might try reading another book written by Mara Jacobs.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable. But seriously how many times are you going to let a guy dump you and you keep coming back. I had hoped by the end of book that I'd like Finn but didn't. Although I didn't much care for Lizzie either.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narration needed better distinction between male characters and a way better male voice.


    Could you see Worth the Weight being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not without a lot of re-writing.


    Any additional comments?

    This was the first book I've read (listened to) by Mara Jacobs. The book had potential for a lot of depth. However ever you want something light and easy for distraction this is probably it. Worth the Weight was okay.

    What would have made Worth the Weight better?

    If the main character wasn't a self absorbed b**ch. I disliked her so much! there was no way to continue the story


    Has Worth the Weight turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No
