Publisher's Summary

A new person will enter your life in the early year, Leo. Look past any moments of frustration they might bring and laugh - this could be the start of a thriving friendship.

Theo Wallace usually laughs at the horoscopes his mom sends. Still hung up on his ex-girlfriend and practically friendless, this one begs him to reconsider. Because a friendship that stuck, that thrived...well, that would be a reason to leave past pains behind and look to the bright future.

When his sister Leone challenges him to find her the perfect date for a spring wedding, Theo uses it as a chance to make new friends. Theo's ex-economics tutor and newest roommate, Mr. Jamie Cooper, seems to be a possible and convenient match. Real convenient. Like written in the stars, convenient. All he has to do is make sure this Jamie is good enough. Could really be "The One" for her and the friend for him. But watch out, Leo, the stars have a surprise in store....

Contains mature themes.

Amazing story with a sub-par narration.

I've learned a couple things since buying and listening to the audio...
1. I'm still just as in love with the story as I was the first 4 times I've read it.
2. Sub-par narration didn't take the enjoyment out of the story for me. Let's talk about the narration by Rudy Sanda. His voice for Theo was the most "enjoyable" of the voices used. The one for Jamie grated on my ears and didn't match *his* voice AT. ALL. Just because Jamie is responsible doesn't mean he should sound like frustrated 80 year old man. The voices for all the secondary characters were also not on par and even worse than Jamie's (ok, maybe not worse but tied for the worst). Still, I'm a fan of the story and that is the ONLY reason I stuck out the audio.

Great book with poor narration

I loved the story of the oblivious Lei and his amazing Aries. This friend's to lovers worked so well for me. I am so disappointed at the narration. Theo and Leone sound fine. Every other character, including the lovely Jamie, sound nasal, old, oddly cadence, ridiculous, etc.

Love but

I love this series and was so excited to see it coming to audible that I ignored my other ongoing books to listen to one crazy Leo. It is fun and funny book; the romance is slow but so damn adorable.
That being said, I'm not sure I can finish it in audiobook format; the narration is just not right. Mr Sanda's narration doesn't not fit the characters or the pace. It will be hard to finish but maybe it will grow on me, I have to see.... I've never reviewed a book half an hour in. I'll have to get back to this

could not finish

I think it's the gosh awful narration that's put me off this book. his high pitched nasal voice and amateurish presentation made it impossible for me to listen to more than 30 minutes before I had to shut it down. I'm hoping the ebook is better because it sounds like it might be a cute story.

SO much fun!

I love this book and I'm VERY excited to see book 2 coming out soon.
Excellent narration too :)

(Don't wait, grab it now - you're going to have a ridiculous grin on your face the whole time you're listening)

The narrator is just awful

I was fooled by the sample provided before purchasing this audiobook . I typically enjoys books by Anyta but this one is just full of nonsense. I'm all for getting to know a character and their idiosyncrasies and I don't need constant angst and drama but there is no PLOT.. it's just chapter after chapter of Theo bumbling around , way too much about grocery shopping.
I do wonder if I would have a different opinion if I haven't suffered through the awful narration. Mr. Sanda's 'voices' for the side characters are laughable. The mother sounds like a "text to voice" roboreader and he makes Shawn/Sean ( who is in his 20's) sound like a ancient rabbi chewing on ice . When you finallllly get to something between the two MC's the narrator doesn't change pace , tone or inflection.
I wish I didn't have a "don't return books" policy because I totally wasted a credit .

Nails on a chalkboard

This was a new to me author and “”narrator “”.
I really wanted to like this book but it just didn’t give me any kind of satisfaction. The the difference between a Narrator and a book reader can make a big difference. Very dull. Very slow book. Not a great story line.

Amazing story, okay narration

I *adore* this story. It's perfect for those times you don't need world ending, heart destroying drama- just an injection of pure sunshine and fluffy warmth as these two dorks figure out their feelings. And props to Anyta Sunday for portraying the healthy aspects of these sun signs as primary traits of her characters. I was especially excited about Jaime, who is an Aries like myself and is an amazing example of one. The narration though... yeah I'm with the other reviewers who think Jaime's voice was too deep and exaggerated. Some of the others bugged me too but that was definitely the one that grated most and didn't come off as hot-guy-in-his-20s at all.

Good story. Good narration.

This was a warm fuzzy M/M romance.

The characters are wonderful, and the plot was kinda adorable. This was a much needed break from a stressful year. The narrator was good, and I am already listening to the second book in this series.

the narrator kinda ruined this for me

I wish audible had a feature that let you modulate the pitch somehow. I tried to listen to this a 1.5 speed to negate the terrible narration, but alas, that just made it fast and terrible.

Great story, disappointing narration.

The story itself is excellent! A lot of good banter that had me laughing out loud and the chemistry between the characters is scorching but unfortunately the narration put me off. Definitely recommend the story but perhaps choose to read it instead of listening to the audiobook version.

Poor narration

The story was a nice slow burn with lovable characters. I'm going to buy part 2 for sure. But the narrator was horrible. Every sentence read in the same serious tone and you could hear he had to strain himself for Jamie's voice.

Loved the story, shame about the narrator....

Eek, dreadful. Had to dnf after 25%, and was so looking forward to the audio. This story was one of my absolute faves of 2016, but the narrator made Jamie sound as though he had a stick up his backside, so excruciatingly pompous and Theo was just wooden. No hint of the devilry and laughter the story seemed to suggest for him [and I have read the story 3 times], so disappointing. Unfortunately Mr Sanda was the wrong choice for this story, he's too monotonous, and I won't be listening to anything else he narrates. 😕
