Do you believe in love at first phone call? Cohen Rodriguez, Deo's hilarious, über responsible best friend in Lengths, got dumped by his longtime girl because he's "not impulsive enough," and he's burned up. But maybe, just maybe, she's more right than he wants to admit. So he starts to date. A lot. But no one really feels like the one. And the more girls he dates, the more Cohen's convinced she isn't really out there. Luckily he has Maren - the girl with the sexy voice who always cracks the best jokes. They've been talking daily for a year... on the phone.
What started as all work soon blooms into friendship. Then she asks him, "Do you want to meet?" He's scared out of his mind to ruin the one easy, fun relationship he has going for him. But he takes the plunge, and things are just fine, totally easy and comfortable. Except that they both sense that it's not strictly platonic. There's an undeniable attraction and absolute raw chemistry between them... and every time they're in the same room, that attraction gets deeper and harder to ignore. Maren could be the best thing that's ever happened to Cohen. Or she could send his carefully compartmentalized life into a tailspin.
Cohen has to decide if he's ready to let go of his comfortable fantasy and embrace the one girl who might be able to change his luck in love.
It was cheesy. I had no strong emotions during this book. So it's fitting to give it a middle of the road 3 stars. Didn't love the characters, but didn't hate them either. Cohen seemed different from the first book *shrug* maybe I just missed something somewhere. There was too much tiptoeing around with Maren and her dad. The constant sacrifices and family dynamic didn't really feel real. She seemed like too much of a pushover to me.
Sean Crisden - 3stars - He just wasn't very good in this book. His male voices were good some of the time, but his female voices weren't.
Abby Craden - 4 stars Mostly good. A bit inconsistent in her reading.
Some books are really great and this is one. Loved the series and narration was great. Love Sean crisden's voice
