Publisher's Summary

Being one of the guys isn't all it's cracked up to be. So when journalist Chastity O'Neill returns to her hometown, she decides it's time to start working on some of those feminine wiles. Two tiny problems: one - she's five feet and 11 inches of rock-solid girl power; two - she's cursed with four alpha-male older brothers.

While doing a story on local heroes, she meets a hunky doctor, and things start to look up. Now there's only one problem: Trevor Meade, her first love and the one man she's never quite gotten over -although he seems to have gotten over her just fine. Yet the more time she spends with Dr. Perfect, the better Trevor looks. But even with the in-your-face competition, the irresistible Trevor just can't seem to see Chastity as anything more than just one of the guys....

Funny and sigh worthy all in one!

Just One of the Guys by Kristan Higgins (Audio Edition)
Narrated by Xe Sands

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ This book is great! The first line had me laughing, and I didn't stop till the book was over. I have had this book on my TBR shelf for a while now, and from the blurb I was thinking it was a second chance book (it's not really), it was actually one of my favourite plot types. I don't know why I am always worried I am not going to like her books! Every one I have read... I have Loved!

I read a review of this book, that said you don't get to see much of the hero.. which let's face it, is a clincher for me. I love reading the hero's point of view. However, even though Higgins writes in first person (as Chastity), she writes so well, that you get the feelings of the hero anyway! Trevor shows up all throughout this book, and I couldn't wait to listen to their conversations.

Higgins evokes so many feelings, I love her sense of humour, her characters and secondary characters are fantastic.. and listening to Xe Sands read this book was superb. She has the perfect amount of sarcasm and her male voices were wonderful.

I must agree with a statement I read, not too long ago: “You can't go wrong with a Kristan Higgins book!”

It was a sigh worthy romance!

Great narration

Xe Sands performs this so well. Good male voices and such a lovely, soothing voice.

The story itself is cute and sweet along with enough drama to create a story. A few touching tears. My only real objection is that it's written in the first person which I find tiresome. But overall, worth a listen.

Prepare to laugh out loud and sob uncontrollably

One of the best books I've read/listened to in years. Pulls at the heart strings.

My favorite Kristen Higgins book

Funny, funny, and sweet and heartening. Not huge amounts of graphic sex. Great story. I love it.

Very Enjoyable Read

What did you love best about Just One of the Guys?

I loved that the main character's relationship with her family.

What other book might you compare Just One of the Guys to and why?

I would compare this book to My One and Only, also by Kristin Higgins. I have read most of her books. Both books had strong female characters, not just the heroine. And both of the main characters could laugh at themselves while not falling completely apart when things did not go their way.

What about Xe Sands’s performance did you like?

She sounds exactly like you think the characters would sound like, including the men. I think she is very talented.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I really like the book. I have to admit I may have shed a couple of tears during two major scenes involving her parents.

Any additional comments?

Worth the credit

Perfect.

One of the smartest, funniest and perfectly sarcastic books I've ever read. I giving it as a Christmas present to several of my best friends bc I know that it will not disappoint. Also Xe Sands is a genius narrator. Love her timing, sarcasm, male voices, intelligence and wit!!

Just one bleeping boring story!

I cannot believe I am writing this review about a Kristan Higgins story. I recently discovered the author, and have almost been hearing Xe Sands' voice in my dreams, I've listened to so many this duo's books. This makes Just One of the Guys even more disappointing. Did Kristan Higgins even write this story? It is so empty. Not sure how several listeners laughed out loud. The supposed lol moments had me cringing. Honestly, a grown woman unable to remove a piece of salad off of her blouse, please!

The heroine is not a likeable person. At all. She is judgy, preachy, naive, juvenile and just all around boring. She has no depth of character, and shows no growth through the entire book. Other than her adopting the "ugliest" dog in the world, and reaching out to a hostile co-worker in her time of need once, I could not find one redeeming quality in her. The love of her life is equally insipid. His character and personality are hardly developed, we only see some parts of him through Chastity's eyes, and they are very biased eyes. I felt really sorry for the people who had to put up with Chastity and her incessant obsessions, self pity and whining. She epitomizes all the stereotypes made up about single women in their early 30s - obsessions with their looks, relationships (or lack thereof), and their biological clock.

The only good part of the story where I felt like cheering was Betty's decision. Go Betty!

I was just so bleeping glad when this bleeping story ended. The only reason I was able to make it to the bleeping end is because of Xe Sands' amazing narration.

Played for laughs, and lost all credibility

A thirty year old woman who starts babbling and loses it because another woman goes into labor -- it just didn't work, playing this for laughs.
