I was looking forward to reading this story because I love the texting love connection type stories and the overall plot was pretty cute. I did listen to the whole thing. I didn't hate the book, but I also didn't love. I just kind of hung in there out of mild curiosity. The narration definitely leaves little to be desired. The woman's voice was ok at first, but her impressions of her other friends made them sound manly and her inflections and the emotions she was putting behind her thoughts and dialogue felt very off from what I would assume the author was trying to portray through the writing.
The man was absolutely terrible, I hate to be harsh with criticism, but it really felt so dry and not emotional at all. His dialogue was completely flat and did not engage me with his character at all. He sounded like he was reading out of a history book instead of conveying a love story.
The narration was so bad I had to stop listening and simply read parts because I was getting all the wrong emotions and feelings from their interpretation.
I did not really feel any connection at all with the characters which is a bummer and I am sure it has to be caused by a mixture of the story telling and narration. There wasn't really an appropriate amount of character development in my opinion.
So all-in-all, I didn't hate it, but didn't love it either.
