Publisher's Summary

“Fans of romantic comedies should grab a copy of Just a Name; it has the perfect balance between sweet and sassy.” (Readers’ Favorite)

Holly has a plan for everything. But she never could have planned for this. 

Holly Murphy’s perfectly planned life is not going so well. Her fiancé recently dumped her, the team she supervises at work secretly hates her, and now the promotion she’s worked so hard for is in jeopardy.

Thinking that maybe Holly is too tightly wound and needs a break from everything, Holly’s boss demands she take a vacation. Holly’s best friend Quinn comes up with a wild idea for Holly to do a nationwide search for a man with the same name as her ex-fiancé to go with her on her honeymoon trip. That idea is a no-go for play-it-safe Holly, until her boss finds out and loves the idea.

Resigned, Holly gives in and starts the nationwide search, and when handsome Nate Jones from Newport Beach gets picked to go with her, she wonders if this whole thing won’t be so bad after all.

Will Holly learn that sometimes even the best laid plans need to be thrown out the window once in a while? Or will it send her running and screaming back to her safety net?

"Just a Name is delicious escape! I devoured every character, every moment, and every quirk and couldn't get enough. This book is Becky Monson at her finest!" (Author Whitney Dineen)

"Becky Monson has outdone herself with Just a Name. It's fantastic! I'm still swooning." (Author Jennifer Peel)

Cute story

I really liked the story, but there were quite a few swear words, and even more fake swearing that was unnecessary.

Funny!

I read this book before I listened to it. I listened to it because I read it! I thought it was laugh out loud funny. Ultimately it is a romance, but there is a lot of self-discovery buried in that meet-cute!

I would recommend this book to others

Uptight and in Love!

What a story! The main Character, Holly, is cute, put together and wound tight as a top. Through all her job woes and being left two weeks before her wedding, she manages to fall in love and quit a job that made me feel sick and graciously give her father and fiancé her wedding dream day. Phew! Good read but I need more to finish her life story!

A fun read

I listened to the audiobook and think the narrator's voice helped me get into Holly's head because she wouldn't have sounded the same in my imagination. Because the book is from Holly's point of view you 'hear' everything Holly's thinking, which sometimes felt as if I were in a hyperactive person's brain (Holly thinks about EVERYTHING), and lots of times it was hilarious.

Holly is a workaholic who never uses her vacation days, which I can't relate to at all. Se works at a bank so she gets all the federal holidays off with pay, but who thinks those are a substitute for a real vacation? Well, Holly does. Now her supervisor's basically forcing her to take a vacation. Her friends tell her to go on the trip to Europe that was supposed to be her honeymoon, until her fiancé broke up with her three months before the wedding. There's a slight problem--she has to find a guy with the same name as her ex-fiancé so he can use the other ticket. The search is on for a Nate Jones. Will Holly be able to go on this forced vacation and not try to manage her team via long distance?

Not only was Holly a workaholic, but she seemed to be a micro-manager too--she plans out everything! She's constantly worried about her team's performance and how it will affect her upcoming promotion, but she doesn't really know how to motivate them. I did love her group of friends and how they supported her. I liked when her ex-fiancé's best friend joined her in the middle of her vacation, and helped her learn to slow down, relax and enjoy the little things. Not everything has to be planned and scheduled.

There are some mild words and the first letter of a few others.

Good potential but doesn’t quite make it

There was too much detail about the mundane stuff and key events and interactions were briefly summarized. The romantic interest seemed to be a bit part in the story and the protagonist just came across as whiny and clueless. And there’s only so many times I can read about the corner of a lip turning up. I’ve never written a bad review before but I found this one really frustrating. I think the author could do a lot more with this and definitely think she has the skill to do it.

Great Narration!

This is such a fun series. The narrator did such a great job bringing the book to life. Her talent made this a great book to listen to. I'm a little disappointed that the other books don't have the same narrator. Tayler Mettra will be a hard act to follow.

Story obvious and needlessly boring

This was a good concept poorly executed. This author assumes the reader/listener isn’t intelligent. She gives obvious details and this makes the story a tedious chore. The main character is also very irritating. The story is written in first person and the main character dominates all of the book with very little meaningful conversation with the other characters. Also no character development. I only finished this book because I used my 1 credit and didn’t want it gone to waste.
