Smart & Funny

This has been a hit and miss series for me, but I enjoyed this story very much. Marie & Matt are very likable characters, both are smart and funny and their relationship is a slow burn. There are check ins with other characters from the previous books which is always a nice touch. I would have enjoyed a little more from Matt’s POV, but overall a decent read.

Dating-ish

Marie and Matt didn’t start off so great but they grew to be friends then lovers. It was an interesting story but one I couldn’t get enough of.

I like how they challenged each other and even if they had troubling conversations they were always honest with each other.

Great ending, loved the narration.

Stand alone but should read others first

Most stand alone books in series briefly involve or reference previous characters. This book spends 1/2 time on the old characters and there are a lot of them. I felt it detracted from the story because there were so many players who I didn't know and didn't have investment in. The dialogue was prolonged in this way. Wanted more time with the main characters. Should read the other books first

superb!

Marie & Matt's heartfelt story, the news from the rest of the gang, the slow growth & burn, the permanent smile on my face, the anticipation, the truth, the sweetness, the sexiness, the cleverness of this book, the choice of Joy Nash as a narrator... Thank you, Mrs. Reid <3

A great smart romance series

I read this series out of order, and this was the last I read because I hadn't felt interested in Marie... but this is now one of my faves! The chapter intros about AI were a cool touch. I like Stephen Dexter's voice, but can't stand the way he voices women!

very cute-;better second time around

I'm a penny Reid fan in general, and this book had her trademark wit and eloquence. that said, it isn't a favorite in this series simply because I wasn't in love with either leads. they are both smart, and their subject matter was engaging but still I felt a bit 'meh'.
I will say, I first read this a few years ago and on this second listen, u enjoyed the book much more. sure they are no Kat and Dan or Sandra and Alex, but this book is charming.

Names of characters

This story was really good. One major peeves I have is when a writer cannot remember the name of an older character from a previous book. Or in this case when the performer pronounces a name incorrectly. You can’t help but hear it each time. The characters name is SAN-dra Fielding. Not SAUN-dra. I have no idea why nobody caught this other than neither the performer nor the editor read or listened to previous books.

Loving this series!

Easy to identify with these strong people humorously and seriously exploring and sharing their insecurities.

Narrator has sticky mouth

I've lived the series so far but looks like I'll have to read this one. I consume a ton of audio books while I work and this is one of a few that I couldn't listen to because I can hear the slimy mouth sounds. This could probably be solved with microphone adjustment. I'll probably give it a try without headphones

One of my favourite Penny Reid books

4.5*

I can't help it, I just adore everything Penny Reid puts out. I think I might be biased. The mix of smart and funny, sexy and sometimes angsty she puts together to make her stories hooks me in and holds me tight. This is the 14th book of hers I have read and I have yet to be let down in any great way. Matt and Marie, well I didn't see them together at all. But it worked. The slow burn friends to lovers romance..it was everything. And their friendship was so wholesome, even though they were both into each other the whole time. SO CUTE.

Wonderful! Charming, clever heartwarming and funny

I loved, loved, loved every word. The characters were so vivid and I was enthralled by all their idiosyncrasies and charm. So many laughs as well as heart-in-mouth moments. As ever it was a pleasure to meet up with the rest of the cast from the previous books, too. Narration was amazing as ever. I can’t wait to start the next book.

Not the best in the series, but better than most!

I avidly listen to all Penny Reid’s book and this one is not a disappointment. I have to admit it’s not her best in the series, and for me it did lag a bit in the middle. I think this is probably because this book is all about the relationship and the actual plot line was bit weaker than normal so there was not the added interest of that to keep the book flowing. However as this writer on a bad day is still outstanding, and way superior to so many others in this field, I am not about to deduct stars for being slightly less than perfect.

Perfect addition that's beautifully read

So I read this first in tree-book, then e-book and now on audio. On each reading I found different things I'd missed previously

If you've not read this quirky, funny, intelligent book give yourself a shake, go read it now. Though if you've not read the series I can recommend reading in order as each book, despite being a standalone story, has spoilers for the earlier ones.

Go on... go read...now!

Best book of the series.

Just loved this story. Fantastic love interest, very well crafted. The story was very moving at times and cleverly kept you waiting. Very well read.
Five out of five.

OK. This is my new favourite Penny Reid.

This just may be my new favourite overall listen. Neanderthal was my previous fav.

This is what I'm looking for when I'm scouring the store for a new book. I'm in a relationship, I don't want to listen to hours of sex scenes. I don't want to listen to hours of boring relationship talk because they get together too early in the story.

This story was sweet, and a little comical, but not too sweet.
Sexy, and sex scenes timed beautifully toward the end. Lots of chemistry and angst throughout.
Matt is my new favourite character. I actually laughed out loud at some of his reactions. I cried too.
Cheers for the entertainment.
