Publisher's Summary

School psychologists aren't supposed to write books about sex. Doing so would be considered "unethical" and "a fireable offense." Lucky for you, ethics was never my strong suit.

After spending years trying to spice up my sex life, I gave up and took to my journal. Perhaps my gorgeous, cold, number-crunching husband simply wasn't capable of the kind of passion I'd come to expect. After all, my ex-boyfriends (a skinhead turned US Marine turned motorcycle club outlaw, a baby-faced punk rocker out on parole, and a heavy-metal bass player) were every bit as tattooed and testosterone-fueled as the leading men in my favorite romance novels. If I couldn't have that kind of passion again in real life, I could at least write about it. Right? Nobody had to know. It would be my little secret.

Well, guess what?

My husband read that shit.

And guess what else?

He upped his f--king game.

Drunk with power and under the dubious advisement of my best friend and colleague, I began testing the limits, crafting journal entries specifically designed to manipulate Ken's behavior. For the most part, he responded beautifully...except when he didn't.

What a 5 star book sounds like

I read this book when it came out and loved it. I usually don't listen to a book after I've read it, but I was really interested to hear how Ramona Master was going to pull it off.

BB tells the story of her teenage through current life as told through the relationships she has had with 4 men. Each one completely messed up in their own way, well except for her husband Ken. He is the most normal one, if not the most boring. However, he might be the most comical. From skin heads to musicians, BB had a certain taste in men that made for some comical stories.

This book is a hoot and also will make you remember your own growing years and contemplate how you yourself ended up in the place you are in. I loved it even more in audio than in print.

Ramona Master was the perfect choice. Her voice is the perfect age and sound. She had the ability to pull off a great mix of crazy and flighty. I can't imagine anyone else fulfilling this role. She was excellent.

Interesting (and sexual) story of a married woman’s reminiscences

This was fun to listen to - but that may have been because I identified with the protagonist (I had my boyfriend listen to a sub-story and it was not his cup of tea).

Sex is described quite candidly and explicitly, so hopefully that’s something a potential listener would be interested in!

I enjoyed the performance by the narrator; she was able to bring a lot of positive energy and fun to the story!

Great book

BB Easton is hilarious! This was my first book of hers to read and i was laughing my butt off! I loved the back and forth of the stories and each of the 4 men were so different yet i could relate to dating guys just like each of them! I look forward to reading each of the 4 books on the individual men.

A creative genius wrote this book!

Purely the mind of a creative evil genius, BB Easton’s words greeted me enthusiastically, as I dug into the pages of this hilarious and completely original novel.

This is the first book written by BB that I have read and I could just kick myself for not reading her work sooner. I don’t remember a time that I was so caught up in the hilarity of a book that, at times, I thought that I might cause myself physical harm, I was laughing so hard while reading.

While the book is incredibly funny, I found that it was intensely hot and undoubtedly the most creative story that I have ever read before! I read a lot of romance books and this book was one of the first that I could not predict what would happen next or how it would end. Her ways, although a bit unethical, were downright entertaining. If you enjoy reading books, heavy with spice and want a great laugh, I highly recommend this book! I for sure will be reading more from her just as soon as I can.

Female POV only. Interesting take!!

I don't think I wouldve had as much fun with this book if I didn't listen to it. Ramona Master delivered BBEaston's book with perfect accuracy, character, emotion, and humour!!! LOVED the execution, Really fun story. I mean... just listen to the sample!! I fully enjoyed this refreshing idea of a book. And even though there are discussions of past Ex's, it doesn't feel like its a Trope at all. You end up just being curious on what BB Easton has experienced in life.

Only if you need/want a good laugh

Each story is written with humor and a true to life realism. I wanted to experience this audible first to get a feel for the rest of them. If they are anything like 44 Chapters, I will be giving them away as gifts! I promise you will laugh your ass off!
So happy to have found BB Easton and Ramona Master! I found “STAR” on Audiobook boom. Don’t think I would have purchased this audible without them. Thank you

Brilliant

I listened to Star first, and as soon as I was done immediately devoured this one. So many emotions during this book. I laughed, cried and wanted to throw my device a few times. Really enjoyed this!

Super Amazing Story and Narration. Fav Author!

BB Easton has quickly become one of my most favorite authors! I love this series! This series has things I thought I didn't enjoy in books, but BB Easton's writing draws me in. Her words jump off the page and come alive. This series is based off of events that have happened in BB's real life, and I love her take on the events. The way she tells a story; the vulnerability her words project, make you feel as if you were there with BB during some difficult, intense, wonderful, and sublime times. I relate to the time period of the story as I'm of similar age to BB, so I love those aspects that bring me back to my teenage years. Although, I was a lot more mellow than BB! This woman lead a wild life! BB Easton is a one click author for me, and I've absolutely loved every single book she's written so far! Book 2, Skin, is the book I started with, and then I read book 3, Speed, before I got to 44 Chapters. I think 44 Chapters can be read whenever in the series, but the rest of the books should be read in order. After Skin and Speed, I loved Knight and I still do, but after reading 44 chapters, Ken is just too adorable! It's easy to see how BB fell in love with him; even if he's a little difficult ;-) I read Star right after I finished this and will be writing my review for that book next. BTW, It's totally amazing! I listened to the audio book for 44 Chapters, and the narrator is totally amazing! She narrators all of the books in this series so far, and her voice fits BB so well. She makes the listening experience totally engrossing, and she brings the story to life. I'd definitely recommend them! Okay, I'm going to go gush some more in my review for Star!

Hilarious!

I literally laughed out loud several times throughout this book. At times it was a bit much. The narrators comedic timing was on point.

Hilariously Amazing

Where does 44 Chapters About 4 Men rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I think this audio book ranks on the better/best side out of the ones I've listened to. The narrator really brought out the story and characters in this book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character by far of course would be BB. But if I had to choose 1 of the 4 men I would choose Ken.

Which scene was your favorite?

Oh my gosh there are so many favorite scenes, and I don't want to give away any spoilers, So I'll just say you need to listen to this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, this is definitely a book I wanted to finish in one sitting. Especially to listen to it with the hubby sitting with me.

Any additional comments?

This story was hilarious and the characters were amazing. The narrator did an amazing job.
