Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a big-time musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway - until he admits his student visa has expired and he's in the country illegally. Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him.

I liked the story for the most part. The story was well written, the characters seemed original, the drama was, of course, there but not overwhelming and over the top. I liked the heroine’s growth over the book, her realization of some hard truths, and she was also relatable. Here’s my issue and why I took away a star; I wasn’t sold on the narration. I can’t think of the best way to describe it, but it almost seemed like she had trouble differentiating between her American accents and her Irish accents. I’m not really an accent snob here, but it was noticeable to me. The main thing that stood out was that some statements she made seemed almost like questions. Anyway, it was okay.

Growing up, the three of us were friends. He was the nerd. I was the playboy. She was the beauty. Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied. I went off to college, and he got the girl. Amber never knew how I felt. They were together for years - before he broke her heart. Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

This audiobook was wonderful. The story was well written, the characters were engaging and while normally, romances can be somewhat predictable, I was honestly surprised here and there throughout the book. The narration was well performed. Long story, short, it was definitely worth the credit.

It started out like any other morning on the train - until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle. He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world. Who did the stuck-up suit think he was...God? Actually, he looked like a god. That was about it.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would if they were interested in it. It was a little predictable but the main characters were well developed.

What other book might you compare Stuck-Up Suit to and why?

While I can't come up with an actual title, it was fairly predictable. Girl and boy hates each other. Then love each other. Then surprise creates drama. They have to work through it.

What aspect of Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell ’s performance would you have changed?

I mean, their perceptions of the characters they mainly voiced was good. Their interpretation of the opposite sex was a little annoying. But it wasn't unbearable.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love when the characters grow. I truly do. And both characters did grow and evolve so I loved that part.
