Publisher's Summary

Juno

When I'm late for a job interview and get stuck on an elevator with an annoyingly sexy, ancient-Rome-obsessed grump, the last thing I expect is for him to be the billionaire owner of the building. I also don't expect to almost kill him...accidentally, of course.

Sure, I don't get the plant care position I applied for, but I do receive an interesting offer.

Lucius needs to trick the public (and his grandma) into thinking he's in a relationship, and I need tuition money to get my botany degree. Our arrangement is mutually beneficial—that is, until I start catching feelings.

If being a cactus lover has taught me anything, it’s that if you get too close, there's a good chance you'll end up hurt.

Lucius

Post-elevator incident, I'm left with three things: my favorite water bottle full of pee, a life-threatening allergic reaction, and paparazzi photos of my “girlfriend” and I that make my Gram the happiest woman alive.

Naturally, my next step is to blackmail—I mean, convince—this (admittedly cute) girl to pretend to date me. That way, my grandma stays happy, and as a bonus, I can keep the gold diggers at bay.

Unfortunately, my arch nemesis, a.k.a. biology, kicks in, and the whole "not getting physical" part of our agreement becomes increasingly hard to abide by. Worse yet, the longer I'm with Juno, the more my delicately crafted icy exterior melts away.

If I'm not careful, Juno will tear down my walls completely.

Great Book!!

Sebastian York delivered yet another great narrative as only his narration seems to do. The story line was cute, and the author added just the right amount of humor. I will be looking for more books by Misha Bell.

Another awesome Rom-com from Misha Bell

Take one cactus-like billionaire who’s obsessed with Ancient Rome and one cactus-loving woman with the name of a Roman goddess and you get the opening to this book. Of course, like all of Misha Bells books, this one is laugh-out-loud funny, full of warmth and heart, and something just a little extra to bind it all together! If you haven’t read/listed to this one, do it now! As for me, I’ll be in swoony-heaven, waiting for their next book (and re-listening to some of their works).

Laugh out loud and Swoony RomCom

If you’re looking for a cute, funny, fake relationship rom com, look no further. Misha Bell writes another fascinating, laugh out loud, grumpy/sunshine rom com. Lucius is a grumpy Billionaire who is obsessed with Ancient Rome. Juno is a sunshine, sassy cactus lover who will bring him to his knees. Their chemistry is slow burn. They have the best witty banter. I love how Lucius tries to resist Juno because he doesn’t want to be a “slave to his biology”. They both have some quirky, adorable personalities that complement each other well. I absolutely loved this on ebook however on audio it’s so much more! Erin Mallon and Sebastian York were perfectly cast as Juno and Lucius. Erin does an incredible job as the sassy, funny lovable Juno, who talks to her pet cactus plant, El Duderino. SebYo as Lucius is so swoony and adorable. He captures his prickly but soft side perfectly. They do great job captivating you from start to finish. This audiobook will leave you feeling giddy afterward.

Grumpy Roman God

This was a fun quick book. I started hearing this book on a plane ride and needed to hide my smiles. I didn’t want my seat mates to think I was crazy. I continues the book once I arrived at my hotel and unpacked. Then realized I was so invested in finding out what happened I couldn’t put it down.

The ML was adorable. Throughout the story, you find out that his life has been difficult and it helped shaped him into the jerk he is but leave it to the FL to break down that Roman God exterior. I would definitely hear/read this book again.

Such a fun listen!

This was such a fun and cute listen! Romantic Comedies are my favorite. I love when a book makes me laugh. I also like the fake relationship trope because that usually means we get more time with the couple. I found that to be true with Juno and Lucius, even if they didn’t truly become a couple right away. They spent a lot of time together getting to know each other to fool his Grandma so it felt like we got true couple time. Erin Mallon and Sebastian York are two of my favorite narrators! They did a fantastic job bringing this couple to life. Fun audiobook!

Sweet and Hilarious Romantic Comedy!

I read it, and loved it. The audiobook version is perfect! Juno and Lucius's fake relationship is beautifully written, hilarious, cute, engaging, and heartwarming. Juno is such a beautiful character, sassy, feisty, and sunshine. Lucius, a sexy grumpy billionaire, is handsome, and caring. Their slow burn romance is captivating! They are opposites attract, and they are perfect together. Lucius's grandma is a fantastic supporting character. I liked the humor in the story. Outstanding narration from Erin Mallon, and Sebastian York. They are on my list of favorite narrators. I enjoyed it, and I highly recommend it. Misha Bell's writing is amazing! She never disappoints! If you like Romantic Comedy, this one is for you!

Fun and quirky story with fabulous narration!

Audiobook: Narrators - Erin Mallon and Sebastian York

This was such a fun story made even better by the fabulous narration of this incredible set of narrators. It just doesn’t get any better than Mallon and York. They took me to a whole new place with this story. After reading it and loving it, I found listening added an even greater dimension as the characters came alive in all their quirky ways. This is definitely my favorite by this author and I’m thrilled to have the audiobook as the perfect reread.

Juno & Lucius!

Just in time for the weekend, my ears were treated to this funny, romantic billionaire grump story! Misha Bell does it again, giving us a quirky heroine and off the charts, broody man! Juno is going to a job interview and gets stuck in the elevator with Lucius. After a crazy time together, they leave hoping to never see each other again. But memories still invade their thoughts, and when Lucius needs a girlfriend for his image and for his grandmother, Juno seems to be the perfect choice. What does she get out of it? Tuition! But when these two get together, there is much more than an agreement between them. What will happen when feelings get in the way? I was laughing out loud from the cat in the purse! Witty banter and incredible chemistry melted my heart and made me laugh. And I absolutely love Lucius's Grandma!! What a hoot! This is a fabulous escape from the world and fun listen!

Sebastian York and Erin Mallon bring all the comedy to life with their hilarious narration. York is the perfect fit for Lucius the grump. Bringing all his arrogance and broodiness out made him real. Mallon is so good at these quirky heroines. Her comedic timing makes Juno relatable and easy to love! I enjoyed their performance, and my heart was happy!

Delightful!

The story was delightful and deliciously odd. It made me chuckle several times. The characters were lovably quirky, including the side characters. Both Sebastian York and Erin Mallon nailed the main characters and heightened the comedy with their voice acting.
Sebastian York is one of my favourite male narrators and was wonderful as the Billionaire Grump.
Do listen for a light escape from a sometimes dark reality.

Great Story

Really enjoyed the narrators, the humour, the characters and the storyline. Would recommend if you want a fun, quirky story that doesn't have a heavy emphasis on tragic back stories and sometimes it is good to read a mostly uplifting story.
