Snagging a date?

Not a problem.

But one that meets my special requirements?

As the premier best-man-for hire in all of Manhattan, I promise discretion, so when I need a plus one for a couple of I dos, she needs to be A-Plus in reliability. Fortunately, I have a brilliant solution in asking my best friend's sister to go on my arm. Truly is my good friend, too, and I trust her completely.

Just look how discreet she's been about the time we spent the night together. But, it was only once, and it was months ago. We've been the souls of restraint ever since. I'm sure we can make it through these weddings without banging each other in the limo. Probably.

Plus, she needs my help with a business proposal.

A little I'll-scratch-your-back-you-scratch-mine doesn't have to lead to the bedroom, right?

Good thing we know our way around the friend zone. The treacherous, torturous all-too-easy to slide out of friend zone.

*This special production also includes a behind-the-scenes conversation with Andi Arndt and Shane East as well as a blooper reel!*

But how to pick just 100 of these unique and immersive listening journeys? We defined a series as having a minimum of three books, and—after some debate—we decided the titles had to be anchored in fiction. From YA to horror to historical fiction, from fresh voices to seminal tales, hours of discovery await.
