Publisher's Summary

What happens when an accountant decides to grab life by the horns and try something new? Apparently a pirate named Dave, a lot of pastel fleece, and blackmail - just to start with....

Visualize and succeed, Oprah said. I was sure as hell trying, even if my campaign to score a job as the local weather girl had ended in a restraining order. Okay, TV was not my strength. But a lack of talent has never stopped me before. Which is why I've embarked on a writing career. I mean, how hard can it be to come up with a sexy romance?

Leave it to me to wind up in a group of porno-writing grannies who discuss sex toys and apple cobbler in the same breath. Also, leave it to me to leak an outlandish plot idea to a best-selling author with the morals of a rabid squirrel. And only I could get arrested for a jewelry heist I didn't commit - by a hunky cop whose handcuffs just might tempt me to sign up for a life of crime. Maybe I've found my calling after all.

    "This is not good"

    This was not good. This whole thing was at the level of what they were writing in the book.

    "A bit surprised by the language"

    R-rated. Not because of sexual content but the sheer quantity of f-bombs and their equivalent. There’s a point where it ceases to be funny and becomes tiresome. The story was really fun and the writer succeeds in making it even painfully funny — so much so you want to duck your head and just haul off laughing, until, as I said you grow tired of the nasty language and just wish she’d back off by half. The narrator does a great job. Heed the warnings and give it a try. You’ll laugh!

    "So damn funny!!!"

    I love love loved this audiobook. I almost crashed my car I was laughing so hard. Narrated by Jessica Almasy with her fantastic voice shined with her ability to bring out all the wonderful characters. A beautifully written romantic comedy, Robyn Peterman has supplied plenty of ha ha moments, and touching sad moments that will make you tear up. This audible will for sure be one I will listen to again and again. I'll be purchasing the rest of the series for sure!

    "Totally hysterical!!!"

    ***Excessive Searing***

    How hard can it be … to become a romance novel writer? Rena, our protagonist, feels it is not hard at all. She is a CPA who happens to write numbers; so she kinda writes now. She also felt, showing up to the news station for a month straight would get her the job to be a meteorologist. Instead, it resulted in her receiving a restraining order against her, 6 hours in jail, and being the story on the 6:00 news.

    Jessica Almasy’s narration was delightfully, youthful, and energetic. Within the first 3 minutes she transports you to the era of Lucy Ball. Rena turns all situations amusing by her bungling and incompetence.

    In Rena’s her quest to become a writer goes to writer’s workshop, where she finds a group of eclectic geriatric women, who write romance novels. Rena’s goal is to meet the New York times bestselling romance novelist, Evangeline O’Hare.

    From that point, her life is a roller coaster of events; finding her true love, being arrested, losing her true love, being blackmail and family dinners with an aunt who think aliens are living in her toaster. It is Rena’s sense of justice and passion that motivates her to write Pirate Dave and His Randy Adventures.

    This is a hilarious book that I will read again and again. The next books in the series are about different characters. It is Rena and her quirky entourage’s adventures that I enjoy.

    "Caution: so funny, you'll wet your pants!"

    If you're looking for a fun escape this book is it! I've read other Peterman titles that have made me laugh, but didn't have the same magic in audio format. This book doesn't have that problem. The premise is funny, the characterization is hilarious, the story within the story brought tears of laughter to my eyes and the boyfriend's voice is just sexy!
    Really, it's raunchy and hilarious and it will make you snort coffee out of your nose - read it.
