Meet Hailey - possessed by an otherworldly being who was trapped in her Kindle.
Hailey Parrish is quick witted and irreverent and hasn't had a date in three years. She wanted an ebook reader only because her collection of paperbacks threatened to take over her small living space. Little did she know that the "special offers" that prompted the purchase included much more than a reduced price in exchange for a few ads. The device comes preloaded with the essence of Sebastian Kess, an erudite womanizer with magical abilities from a parallel dimension. When she inadvertently releases him, and he inhabits her body, she finally has a man inside her, just not in the way she imagined. And soon her predicament introduces her to yet another supernatural being - the handsome could-be-the-man-of-her-dreams Alex Sunderland. Can Alex and Hailey find a way to return Sebastian to his own body and stay one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is?

I would recommend it to a friend, a family member, or even a person I saw on the street. Why? Because it's fun, quirky, and the narrator nailed the three lead characters voices. When you have a favorite book - of which this is one of mine -you worry about the audio version. A narrator's voice can make or break a book and when it's a favorite, that's a lot of pressure on the poor narrator. Well, she did a perfect job in my opinion. Not only did she do an amazing job at Hailey's, Alex's, and especially Sebastian'e voices, but she was amazing when she pronounced foreign words in the correct accent without missing a beat.
Only 1? From the moment Hailey announces she's a Chinchilla milker, you know you're about to be on an amazing ride. And it just gets better from there. But if I had to pick a favorite moment, well, I can't. Because there are just SO many. When she meets Alex, the first time she talks with Sebastian, or that moment when she forgot her towel and kept her eyes closed so Sebastian wouldn't see anything and ends up taking a spectacular stumble out of the shower. It's such a wonderful story.
She did a perfect Hailey, getting her sarcasm and quirky character down perfect, but I'm also thrilled with how she did Sebastian, because his is a voice that's very important and she nailed it, I think.
The audiobook gave me the same reaction the ebook did - it made me laugh and unable to stop listening.
Give it a try. You will be glad you did. It's fun, interesting, introduces us to a parallel dimension Coursodon, and we meet some amazingly wonderful characters. Now I can hardly wait for Book II to get into audio so I can add it to my collection :D
