"Oh, I'm sorry. Did you say you were happy? LOLOLOLOL!" ~ Life  

Ember Hastings never thought she'd be dragged away from White Timber and everything she loved, thrust in the middle of a big city she hated, or have her husband of nine years say, "I can't do this anymore", all within the span of three months - yet here she is.  

She misses her family, she misses the farm, and she misses having a backbone and caring whether or not the stain on her shirt is chocolate or s--t. She works from home doing transcription. Does she really need to shower or leave the house? 

Baker Matthews has been bringing everyone down lately with his grouchy attitude. His job is stressful and sometimes depressing, but he wouldn't change anything about it. When a glitch with the transcription company he's using mistakenly sends him notes he wasn't supposed to see, Baker finds himself laughing out loud for the first time in months. 

He's never met a woman who says whatever she's thinking and doesn't fawn all over him when she finds out what he does for a living. Until Ember Hastings comes barreling into his life, calling him S--t Mouth and asking if he has any balls. 

But she wants to keep this professional. She made him pinky swear, and you don't mess around with pinky swears. Baker will have to get creative if he wants to prove to Ember that he's just her type.

not as good as the first one! but still good

so incase you didnt know, read the simple life first, it is an amazing book of pure comedic genius. I loved ember in that book so I was excited for her book but this book wasnt as funny as I hoped, it was kinda forced and sad alot. still a good read, definitely my least favorite out of all this authors books though.

NOBODY WRITES FUNNY LIKE THIS ROM COM QUEEN

Oh Tara, Tara, Tara.. yes, you certainly know how to write an easy-going, lol Rom Com.. and this lighthearted love story between Baker (a Gym owner/ex Army Vet.) and Ember (a divorced Mom) got me some disapproving stares in a lift full of strangers as I giggled my way to the 21st floor.. thanks Tara. No seriously, thanks Tara because this well-balanced dual POV story, with it’s quick-witted texts, emails and verbal banter, lifted my spirits, made me laugh, swoon and sigh as you conjured up some wickedly delicious, super-sweet and happy heartwarming mental images. Your secondary characters.. including the porn star hedgehog and Ember’s son Lincoln, were great and the perfect addition to make comedy gold.. acted out by two very capable narrators.

Worth a credit? Yes it 100% would’ve been.. but it’s another free Audible Escape book - so win win all round. And it’s great to know you haven’t been mugged by greedy authors/publishers hearing ka-ching.. ka-ching.. ka-ching as they split, drag or chop books into bite sized pieces.. unaware that it leaves us with the bitter aftertaste of an exploited unhappy fan. So grateful happy claps and a BIG thank you Audible/The Tara Sivec Team.

Great until the end

Loved the characters, they were funny and cute together. Even though Ember spends most of the beginning whining about her “single mom i’m so busy and my son always comes first”, she starts to become more likeable and balanced in the middle of the book. Then at the end, she just goes off the deep end, she’s mad that Baker assumes she would want to move her son back home (which she’s constantly whines about), she’s mad because she’s too “confused” to ask him if he can just wait until she sorts her crap out, shes mad because she has boxes packed up and he assumes she’s moving, she’s never said she loves him but assumes he should know how she feels (even though he’s clearly expressed his feelings), she’s actually more likely mad that she continues to let her douchebag ex run and manipulate her life, but instead she takes it out on Baker who has been nothing but supportive, understanding, and overly tolerant of her “baggage”.
It’s just too bad that she couldn’t just hold the progress she made emotionally through the end of the book. I guess it was supposed to make for one last dramatic end, but it just makes her seem like she emotionally regressed to her state at the beginning of the book, and then doesn’t seem to deserve Baker. She did go back to him, but only under her deluded idea that she’s angry and it’s his fault he can’t read her mind, instead of recognizing that she should have expressed herself to him and that’s the reason she goes back.

Great start, funny humor, but a terrible finale, which really kind of sours the HEA.

Also, semi spoiler - they never get around to addressing the ex. which seems unrealistic, given the joint custody they seem to share. It seems like a big issue, and could have been easily addressed by Ember continuing her big panty attitude, but instead she just tried to assault him and that’s the end of it.

Terrible narrator.

The story isn't all bad, but it tended to be so cheesy and not in a good way. The female narrator's voice was grating and annoying and her voice acting needs work.

Funny in Parts

Overall, not a bad story. Funny in different parts of the book. Narrators were good. Cliche in other parts. The "electricity" between them, the misunderstanding at the end, the sex scenes. Although I have to say those scenes didn't come right away in the story so that's a good thing. Some of the sarcasm was a bit much, especially with the female lead. I don't mind snarky or sarcasm but when it's constant, that's a bit much. I usually enjoy listening to Tara Sivec stories because there's humor involved.

Still waiting to smile, let alone laugh

I'm an hour and half in and I can't stand it anymore. Want to slap the heroine in the head. She's got a snarky comeback for everything, but most of her problems stem from her own inaction. Going to return this.

just my type... of story ;)

So I clicked this book with not much hope, just trying to find a book to listen to while playing my computer games.

But then it pleasantly surprised me and I was laughing out loud at all their banter and crazy humor. Will definitely look for more from this author.

I enjoyed the male voice. Usually the voices tend to aggravate me or grate on my nerves.... but neither the male or female voices bothered me in this reading. Good job.

Could not stop listening!!

I loved this audible from Tara Sivec! The narrators did an amazing job bringing this funny and heartwarming story to life. Ember and Baker have this hilarious start to a relationship when he get private notes that were not meant for him to see. He reaches out to the one person who has made him smile and laugh in forever. ❤️❤️❤️ I just loved it!

Great... until Chapter 19

I read the first 18 chapters, which were really funny, then switched to Audible. It was instantly so irritating that I wanted to stab someone, perhaps me, to put myself out of the misery this book became. The female becomes such a neurotic twit I am still gagging. I discarded it in disgust in Chapter 21. I may go back to the written version, where I can more easily flip pages (or whole chapters) to see if it improves.
