Publisher's Summary

You won’t want to pause this funny, tender, must-listen romantic comedy - scripted exclusively for audio and performed by a full cast!

When Amanda got a chance to take a shot at love on The Bridegroom - her favorite reality dating show - she jumped in headfirst. She never expected to win and end up engaged to her swoony Scottish suitor. Now she’s hiding out at her parent’s house in Nebraska and waiting for the show’s premiere, all while trying to keep her engagement to Liam top secret. But her real-life love story is about to take a turn she never expected....

When she’s reunited with her high school bestie, Josh, it’s impossible to deny that he’s grown into quite a catch. As they rekindle their friendship, something deeper begins to spark between them...or has it always been there? Now, Amanda has a life-altering decision to make. Will she find happily ever after with her sexy Scottish TV boyfriend or the sweet small-town guy who knows her better than anyone?

Fun escape!

I LOVED this audible! It was such a fun listen and exactly what I needed to escape my daily stresses. I could just relax, laugh and enjoy this love story! Great characters and personalities. The audio production of read was solid too. When I first started listening, I literally thought it was my own phone ringing or messaging me. I highly recommend this audible. Perfect listen when out on a long walk or hike.

TERRIBLE AUDIO

This is a book that seriously made me ask the question: did anyone even listen to this after they edited it?! The audio switched between loud and quiet so often that I almost stopped listening. I had to turn the volume up at least three more levels to even hear the quiet parts and then the normal volume parts would destroy my ears. It was incredibly irritating to switch back-and-forth so often. Then there were certain parts of the book that would repeat. It would finish a few lines, be super quiet and then repeat the lines. Additionally, there were random awkward quiet pauses throughout the entire book. I typically enjoy books like this where they have multiple characters and sound effects, but this one was so poorly done. The plot line wasn’t that great to start with, but a decent performance could have saved it. At least a little bit. Instead, I finish this book feeling like I just lost 4 1/2 hours of my life.

LOVE this classic romcom

This was such a fun listen! I can't stop thinking about the characters. For fans of romcoms, you'll love the homage to all the classic tropes, but they add a modern spin that makes it self-aware and genuinely funny. Light a candle, sip a vanilla latte, and cozy up with this heartwarming story :)

Cute

A short finish listen. It reminded me why I hate and don't reality TV. This though surprisingly has a fun ending.

Hilarious Escapist Fun

Breezed through this audio rom com - so fun and funny. The characters are all so likeable and charming and the story was a fresh take on a classic. Also so many ridiculous Scottish references- loved it.

Loads of Fun

Really fun original Audible production! I’ve listened to a few of these now and I think they’re great! It’s more like listening to a play versus a narrated book. All you hear is dialogue by a full cast of actors and various sound effects like music, ringtones, doors closing, footsteps, etc. This one had a fun plot based on The Bachelor. Amanda is the secret winner and engaged to The Bachelor but she can’t tell anyone until the season airs, so she goes home to live with her parents until broadcasting. There, she reconnects to her long time childhood friends and her high school friend Josh and deals with being a local celebrity as the episodes air, as well as being separated from her secret Fiance. It all plays out with authenticity and has a terrific HEA!

So much fun!

Great show! Lots of fun, very funny, and relatable. This is exactly what we all need right now - something engaging, cozy, and positive. The performances and sound are excellent too, so the time listening flew by. Highly recommended.
