Waking up next to my best friend? No big deal. Only our clothes are MIA. And his ring is on my finger.

I didn't just sleep with my best friend. I married him.

Post-breakup, I'm ready to console myself with books and ice cream. My best friend has other ideas. 

According to Griff, there's only one real way to get over someone: get under someone else. We've been friends since third grade. He's, ahem, experienced. I trust him. 

We go out. Drink. Dance. Kiss. 

That's right, I kiss the guy who used to pull my pig tails. Then we're drinking more, kissing more, and he's pulling my hair in a way that's all grown up. I wake up sore, happy, confused. Because I didn't just sleep with Griff. I married him. Now, I have a choice. Either I stay with my accidental husband or lose my best friend forever.

Griff💘Jules! Fantastic Story & Listen🎧 Heartfelt!

I loved this book, it is so much more than just a best friends to lovers’s story. I enjoy Crystal Kaswell’s writing style and her way with words, she creates the best dialogue between character, especially the banter. The storylines she creates are interesting and engrossing from start to end. Griff and Jules are best friends since grade school know, they really know each other, their likes, their faults, including their issues and inner demons. The one thing they do not know is their feelings for each other, whether realized or not. Jules and her fiancé Jackson breakup days before the wedding, wanting to help her forget about him Griff takes her on a trip to Las Vegas. While Griff denied his feelings, his thoughts showed otherwise but he always came dup with an excuse. The chemistry between the two was undeniable and I was waiting for it to ignite. When it did it was explosive. I like how their story played out, from the fun times in Vegas to the more serious issues, that each were dealing with. Especially Julies, I loved how understanding and supportive Griff was, he realized he may not have been able to help her but he would be there for her and get her the help she needed. Serious swoon right there! Crystal Kaswell thank you for another great story and for keeping it real and taking me on an emotional rollercoaster ride.

I listened to the Audible edition, Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross are terrific narrators and voice performers. They bring their characters to life, gives each their own voice and personality. I love how they just get these characters, emotions and all are projected into their performance so naturally. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

**warning** could be triggering

I thought this story sounded wonderful, I loved the idea of it, and the fact that the book was also about self harming, didn't bother me too much, but the repetitive nature of it drove me nuts. We were told the same thing over and over again. I hated the way they couldn't or wouldn't just say what they thought. They were meant to be best friends.
I skipped quite a bit, I just couldn't handle all the thoughts that were going through their heads and how we were told those thoughts over and over and over again. They could have made this a six hour book.

Loved this book!

Loved this book! I really very much enjoyed the narrators. They brought a whole other feel to this book with emotions. The story was fun, very sexy, and all I wanted to do was keep going! Wen and Kai are both amazing narrators with his sexy deep voice and her fun and flirty voice. I loved Jules and Griff and their love story is truly one of a kind. So cute. Goes to show love isn’t perfect but it can get pretty close to it.

Couldn't Finish

I struggled on this book, I tried very hard to finish i got to chapter 40 and had to quit. The characters annoyed me in every since of the word. The narrators was great.

My Thoughts on Accidental Husband

This was another great story by Crystal Kaswell even if it was different then others she's written. It was a bit darker and touched on some deeper topics, but it was still really good. I loved not only the best friends to lovers aspect but the deeper parts that touched on emotional subjects.

It was brilliantly narrated by Kia and Wen. They are top favorites for me. So I would have given this book a shot for them alone, but the really did do a fantastic job.

Accidental Marriages are the best!

Seriously, they are my favorites, and this one just went to the top of my list! It was funny, sweet, crazy, and deep. I am so excited to listen to the rest of the books in this series and learn more about all of the other characters! the secondary characters in this book play such a big role in the story and I definitely want more about all of them!

The narration was pure perfection! Wen and Kai are the masters of duet narration and rock every single book they do!

Accidentally annoyed

I thought the premise of the story was intriguing. I thought the first few chapters of the book was spot on. But then once learning of Jules 'secret' the story just seemed to veer off into a melodramatic saga...a repetitious meandering saga at that.
For one thing Julie became the most annoying heroine. Her constant second guessing and internalizing was aggravating AND ceaseless. Their misunderstandings and miscommunication as a foil seemed contrived somehow. The back and forth--does he, does she--will he won't she was dizzying.

Additionally she seemed hypocritical, what with promising not to lie to Griff whilst expecting him to be upfront and transparent. I suppose I should give her some consideration given her emotional fragility. Gotta tell ya, I was ready for the book to end.
I will say Julie's problem was a sad one and I was surprised by it's inclusion in the story, but not uncomfortable with it. I was certainly saddened for her.

Meanwhile, I just love the dual narration--just wish all audiobooks adapted this form.

Accidental Husband

This is a friends to lovers, ONS drunk wedding turned more. The characters had such great personalities, and their banter was quite funny. I enjoyed the book, but I felt like the audio made it better. It was a bit difficult to follow the audio, not because of the narration, but because of the inner monologue. I've listened to audio performances by Kai Kennicott & Wen Ross before and they will definitely be put on my list of narrators to look for and listen to.

I could listen all day...

Audiobook review. 3.5 stars. What made this book for me was the narrators. My goodness y’all. Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott gave life to these characters. Their chemistry was palatable, which was only enhanced by their recent revelation that they are indeed married irl.

Griff and Jules are the typical bff to lovers/Vegas wedding couple. The conflict was mostly internal with no big surprises. I liked Griff’s determination and persistence and Jules’ openness. Their friendship felt effortless.

There were some opportunities for improvement in the prose but nothing that listening to Wen Ross didn’t cure. All in all a fun listen.

4 stars


I thought from the blurb I would like this one a lot. I did like it, but not as much I i thought I would. It was a bit hard to tell the inner dialogue vs talking out loud with others. And there was a lot of inner dialogue. Maybe this one would be better not in audio. It’s so rare for me to say that, but I think it would be easier to follow. So overall, I really liked the narrators voices, their performance was good if not rushed. The story I think was a good 4 stars, where I wished something’s was different, a few annoyances, but overall a good plot.

5 big stars

I absolutely loved this book. The banter and chemistry between Griffin and Juliette was off the charts good. This is a new author to me but I will now read all of her books. Kai and Wen were fantastic with the narration, they really helped to bring the story to life.

Great listen

Great story, and greatly narrated. Loved the real raw love between two long time friends. I just loved Griffin, he is such a sweetie. I also thought both Kai Kennicott and Wen Ros did such a great job in bring the characters alive.
