Publisher's Summary

Socialite Amber Holland has it all. Boasting a penthouse apartment, platinum credit card, and designer clothing, all paid for by her property tycoon father, Amber sees no reason things should change. Her father, on the other hand, is starting to see the error of his ways. His daughter is in serious danger of becoming a spoiled brat. 

When her constant partying, copious spending, and insatiable appetite for members of the opposite sex becomes too much for the old man to bear, Amber finds herself marooned in Beijing with no credit line and strict instruction that she make her own way for the next year. 

Armed with only her wits, Amber soon finds a solution to her problems. It’s risky, but the reward is worth it. Unfortunately, her father has just sent her former best friend and current mortal enemy, the incorrigible Kent James, to keep a watchful eye on her. 

Will Amber survive the year in China? Or will Kent drag her back to the States to face the consequences of her own actions?

Excellent Series

This is my third book from the Awkward series. I am truly enjoying them! I was afraid it would be like reading the same book repeatedly, but that is so NOT true!

This book is still laugh out loud funny and the characters are still likable, but they are very different and very entertaining!

4.25 stars
I enjoyed this book more than the first.

This book was a true rom com. Lotsa fun twist and turns.

The author Rachel Rhodes wrote a good story.

The vocal artist katlynnt Millions was very good at portraying the story. Only pet pev was spoke American and kept saying ars instead of ass.

Fun with a learning curve!

This is such an enjoyable story. I really had no idea where this was going to go. The story easily kept me interested. The characters were fun and flirty. I liked the whole idea of her being sent to Beijing as punishment. How she still is able to get Into Trouble amazes even me. I knew Kent was the one from the beginning but when he left her saying he now has a girlfriend?? I was like What the Heck???

I did listen to this on audio. This is my first story read to me by Katlynn Millions. She did a nice job keeping me listening and portraying all the characters.

slow learner

Amber started out a spoiled, immature user loser and ended up quite changed by the end. Jent kept cleaning up after Amber's messes since college. He made a spectacular side kick.
I enjoyed seeing Amber have emotions and responsibilities in time. Kent was awesome to stick through all her crap. He's my hero! The narrator was good. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review.

Honest review

I really liked this book. Having it all doesn’t necessarily mean a thing if you take it for granted. After Amber’s dad sends her away to teach her a lessons, she learns what it means to work for something you love. Be it work, friendships, or love. I did love the adventure she was on even if it was a teachable moment. Plus who doesn’t love a great love story?!?!

Absolutely ADORABLE!

From a really strong opening that leads to a fun romance that’s dotted with humour and drama, what’s not to love about this book? The narrator is PERFECT! Her voice is smooth and easy to listen to. LOVE IT!

Absolutely smitten

New author for me. I absolutely loved this story. I never thought I would be captivated by a book with no sex scenes, especially with a nemesis to lovers story but here I stand corrected .

Amber and Kent’s story is all about growing up. You can’t live forever under mummy and daddy’s trust fund can you? This story will make you laugh, sigh and fist pump for what Amber has to experience. Her flaws are exactly what make her loveable and Kent is absolutely dream worthy.

I cannot wait to devour more

Standalone. No cliffhanger

I love this story too. It took different directions that I was not expecting and I think that is fun to listen to. She is in her early 20’s and has not had to grow up yet. When she is pushed out of the nest she does what she has to. The characters are fun and the narration was great. I recommend this book.

Awkward Abroad

Amber has to learn a hard lesson in life when her father gives her an ultimatum and sends her halfway across the world. With this, she learns so much about herself, friendships and who to really count on. I loved watching this book make its way through with Amber and hope to see more from this author soon.

So much love

This book was fantastic. I loved the main characters and the side characters were just as good. There was so much humour and feelings in this book and seeing the main character grow up was so satisfactory. A fantastic listen

Wake-up call.

This was the third of Rachel Rhodes' 'Awkward' novellas that I've listened to, and I have to say, I think this is my favourite so far. Again the narration was done by Kate Millions, who perfectly embodies Rachel's crazy fast-living girls.

Amber Holland has everything going for her. Her wealthy father pays out for her luxury apartment, her designer clothes and her wild life-style...but then the bubble bursts and he realises she needs a serious wake-up call. Almost overnight she finds herself in Beijing, in a scrappy apartment with barely enough money for bus fare. She needs to find a job and sort herself out, and fast.

I loved how Amber found a niche and really made a go of it. She makes some great friends and of course there are a couple of love interests to complicate her life.
I don't want to say much more in case I spoil it for you, but this would be my first choice if I were recommending one of the 'Awkward' series to read (or listen to).

Another awesome book in this wonderful series

Rachel Rhodes writes complex lighthearted books about relationships that are realistic to what may happen to one of your friends. Amber is one spoiled, entitled girl at the start of this story and I didn’t really want to hear more about her but she sure redeems herself in the end. I was surprised at the few twists in this one and they were definitely Awkward moments in this book just as there were in the previous books. It’s a fun listen for an audiobook and can totally stand alone from the others in the series.

Katlynn is again wonderful in this book and matches the characters very well and brings them to life.

Loved it

Award Abroad, the second book in the Awkward series was a sweet, charming story that had me hooked from beginning to end. I absolutely loved it and enjoyed going on this journey with Amber. Its a story about growth and self realization and you will love the main character and be rooting for her throughout the story. It was a quick read but the story well written and I was fully engrossed. I would highly recommend this novel to everyone looking for a fun read.
The audible version was narrated by Katlynn Millions. She did a fantastic job with the narration, giving the various characters differing voices. Her pace and timing was excellent and she was perfectly suited for the story. I enjoyed listening to her narrate this novel.

Awkward Abroad

Amber is the typical rich party girl. But her father has had enough of footing the bill and the embarrassment. With the help of a good family friend he sends her abroad to get a job and get it together. The story takes some fun/funny twist and turns. It’s also light and a great listen! The narrator is easy to listen to.

Such a great series!

The Awkward series is so good, so easy to relate to, that it's like reading about people we know. This one gives us Amber, the rich, spoiled socialite who finally breaks her father's trust for the last time. He gives her the ultimatum to go to China, cut off from all she knows and has to make her own way otherwise she will be cut off for good. Unwilling to give up the lifestyle she has grown accustomed, Amber goes, figuring she can stick it out for a year and come back to resume her life. But what she finds is something totally different. Kent, her best friend is along for the ride, not always with her, but there for her. It's a wonderful story of growth, realizing potential and just all around good feelings. I loved Amber as she grew, both as a person and a teacher. Seeing priorities change and life come into focus along with a fun, loving back story is the perfect escape. I loved it!

Katlynn Millions continues her narration, and I really enjoy her voice. She is the perfect person for this age bracket, giving new adult voices for both male and female with seamless transitions. I look forward to more from her!
