Instant Attraction

I enjoyed the getting extra time with the couples from Instant Gratification. This whole book just felt like a bonus and who doesn’t like that. I really enjoyed each couple and how they meet and fall in love. For me the reason I enjoy Lauren’s writing so much is she makes her characters believable and witty smart but its more than that it’s the chemistry and heat you feel for each couple. That to me makes a Lauren book fun and entertaining to listen too.

I normally love the narration for all of Lauren’s audiobooks but if I am being honest there is one male narrator who is doing a female voice and it just threw me off. There really are just a handful of narrators who for me don’t do female voices well and he just happens to be one. His regular voice is completely fine. There are so many great narrators in this book that it doesn’t detour you from enjoying the book by any means.

✫✫ 4.5 Stars ✫✫

This was a fun look into three of the couples from Instant Gratification. In the previous book these couples were introduced but without their meet cute and how they were attracted to each other instantly and fell in love. This book give us their beginning which I loved. I really enjoyed the style this book was written in, with a narrator talking about the fairy tales through out the book (YAY Sebastian York). As always this author gives us witty characters with great chemistry. These couples are all so much fun with their differences and what makes them work. I think this book could be listened to before or after Instant Gratification.

The narration was great "mostly". One of my favorite things about Lauren Blakely's audiobooks is her narration choices. And just like all the other books she didn't disappoint, each character's POV has a separate voice and that always works for me! This is not a duet narration except for text messages. Sebastian York is "telling" the story of the Fairy Tale. Andi Arndt, Shane East, Emma Wilder, Hillary Huber and Vikas Adam all are great narrators. My only issue was one of the male narrators' female voice. He is a great narrator but maybe duet style narration is more suited for him.

LB is the queen of romance!!!!

Loved this quick listen!! I loved how it tied up the lose ends from her previous stories… However the narrator for Gavin was terrible his female voice is a complete turn off!!! LB if it anit broke don't fix it.. Keep the same narrators that we love… These stories are to sexy to waste on a horrible narrator. Can't wait until the next book in the series…

Swoon x3! Hot narrator mini-vacay!

If you're all caught up on Lauren Blakely's books, you will love this wonderful trip back in time to see how three couples--from the Instant Gratification world--began their journey to an HEA. Some had an easier time than others, but my heart went pitter-patter for all of them. I was blown away by the guys! Lots of heat, and lots of sweet!

You know Lauren doesn't skimp on narrators, and with this little gem, you get Sebastian, Andi, Shane, Vikas, Hilary, and Emma. These all-stars don't need last names, because WE KNOW THEM!! Of course, Lauren has a little twist w/the narration on this, and I floved it!

If you haven't listened to or read Instant Gratification, what are you waiting for? Get to reading!!!

💕Instant Love!💕

Lauren Blakely is a story telling genius! Definitely worth a listen to hear how these three couples met and fell in love! Listen to this first before Instant Gratification. I loved this story, especially the interludes with Sebastian York as Spencer! 😍

Another tasty treat from Lauren and all star cast!

Instant Attraction is Lauren Blakely's newest novella. It can be read before OR after Instant Gratification since it's the meet cute stories of the three couple is Instant Gratification. This short, sexy novella gave me exactly what I didn't even know I needed. To know how Savannah and Gavin fell in love. To see how Enzo seduced Valerie and to find out exactly how Jason and Truly's story began. With little interludes by Spencer and Charlotte, this is the perfect novella to wrap up Instant Gratification or to whet your appetite for Jason and Truly's full story!

Audio: Sebastian York narrates the interlude as Spencer (swoon) and a full cast including: Andi Arndt, Shane East, Emma Wilder, Hillary Huber, and Vikas Adam, giving us more of the characters we love from Instant Gratification, or introducing you to them before you read the full novel.

Instant Attraction!

Lauren Blakely continues to impress me with her writing. Instant Attraction is instant gratification for my ears. I love how the author writes stories that include multiple people from other books, and its like catching up with old friends. I love her selected narrators and immediately get pulled into the story. Well done!

Sort of a miniature Love Actually with HEAs

The reason for the Love Actually reference is that there is a common theme, common places and eventually in the next book, I think everyone will meet up.
There are HEAs and a teaser but the real fun is the narration. It is like all of your favorite narrators had a party and took turns voice acting a story written by a favorite author. Hahaha!

Short and sweet

Instant Attraction is a prelude to Instant Gratification and introduces us to Truly and Jason who we will learn more about in Instant Gratification. It was a short, sweet read with outstanding narration.

Fun and different

This is a totally different type of audible for me, three different couples storys' overlooked by a central narrator the delicious Sebastion York.

Having listened to Instant gratification i have met the couples before, some more than others, but not deep into their back stories, and this gave me more. How they met, their quirks and more meat to the bones of this set of characters. As you know if you read Lauren's books / listen, her characters do skip and span across books, which i love and so any more I get is a bonus for me and this was super fun, light and made me smile.

Great job and would actually love more of this style in regards to other couples who may just slip across the pages of books past and future.

Not convinced

This was my first time listening to an audiobook with a full cast narration. I loved the narrators (as always), and I also love Lauren's writing, but I didnt get on with this at all. Jumped around too much, no detail and rushed. Just not for me and DNF.

Enjoyable three-fer!

I have missed diving into a Lauren Blakely story, so it was good to get back to it with Instant Attraction.

I liked the multiple storylines, with the multiple narrators (even when there is a narrator I am not usually a fan of involved - sorry) and liked the different ways the stories came across. We get three stories rolled into one with this audio.

I haven't read to Instant Gratification, which I am looking forward to reading soon - I need more of Jason and Truly's story.
