Publisher's Summary

Boy meets girl, boy wins girl, boy nails girl - boy's gone by morning.

I think for sure it must've been a dream because there's no way a guy could look like that, touch me like that, and be so in tune with me on every known level and disappear, leaving me with nothing but a good story to tell my friends.

When he walks into my bar three months later, everything I thought I knew and what we'd had disappears in the blink of an eye and the blinding light of the three-carat diamond on his fiancee's hand.

It seems what I thought was a dream is now my most complicated reality, and I've got absolutely no idea how to fix it - or if I even want to.

Not my favorite BJ Harvey *SPOILERS*

I am not a fan of infidelity, even for sham relationships. I was really liking Kenzie's character in the beginning: Her honesty, integrity, etc. I liked the first part of the book, the beginning of Kenzie and Millen's relationship.

What I didn't like was Millen's ghosting, coming back 3 months later and trying to claim Kenzie, and her letting him. If you are as anti-infidelity as you say you are, you don't just accept that the guy is in a loveless relationship and sleep with him while he is still engaged to someone else. Not cool.

My biggest problem with this audio book? The fact that it says it's narrated by Stella Bloom and Joe Arden. There are 24 chapters and an epilogue in this book. Guess how many chapters Joe Arden narrates: NONE! He has a 2 minute 40 second epilogue and that's it.

I am totally okay with single-person narration, especially since the story is only told from one POV. I feel like I got a little tricked here. I think it should say "Guest appearance" or "Featuring" rather than listing Joe Arden as a narrator.

I have been primarily reading and listening to dual POV books lately, as I find I enjoy the author's vision of the male perspective sometimes more than the females. When you see two narrators listed on a book, the reasonable assumption is that it will be a dual POV story. I just think they should reconsider the way the narration is presented to potential buyers. Throw a little blurb in the description that the male narrative is minor. That's all I'm saying.

First time with this Author

I love the story line. Love the characters and how deeply they felt. The only thing that Bothers me about this book is I that Totally was fool into believing Joe Arden narrated along with Stella Bloom. I’ll be honest and say that’s what got me to listen to the authors book. And I feel fooled. Although I did love this book. Next time don’t mess with the readers with regards to narrators.

Pleasantly surprised

This one caught me off guard. I ended up enjoying the story more than I expected I would. These are two of my favorite narrators, which made a difference. I recommend it.

What a ride!

I was recommended this book, but was not prepared for the story at all! What a ride this story takes you on! Kenzie finds the man of her dreams while working at a bar. After several interactions, she finally goes on a date with the every smooth talking Millen. After an incredible weekend, he says he will call, but we know the story...but the question is why doesn't he? When he walks back into the bar with Kenzie's arch nemesis, so many questions come up it's almost impossible to know where to start. From the opening scene of this book, I knew I was in for it. Easily taken in by Milllen, I knew there would have to be a reason for his actions. This hero has to be good! Harvey has woven this tale of family, love and deception well. My heart ached for both sides while listening, and I can totally understand how each reacted and the decisions they made. The supporting cast of Drew, Gabby and Lana really make the story stand out, but I really fell in love with the Millen's mother and Kenzie's father. I felt their wisdom and insight to their children hit home in each of their scenes. This is an emotional and chaotic journey to find the path to true love.

Stella Bloom is always amazing, and her interpretation of this book is stellar. I love her ability to inflect the pain and emotion, then turn to sarcasm with impeccable comedic timing. Joe Arden reads only the epilogue, and it brings the closure of the story beautifully by Millen. This is a fun and satisfying listen!

One Shot

I almost don't know where to start. The writing was witty and fun. I wanted to smack Kinsey quite a few times. What a hot mess. And, still I liked all of the characters with all of their crazy quirks. You could sort of see someone making these decisions and going through all of this. It was a fun and crazy ride. This could have so easily been one of those roll my eyes, and put down because I would have walked away long ago. Kinsey was a glutton for punishment. But, the writing was witty and good enough not to go over that edge of no return. The comedic timing was perfect and it all just kept me engaged in the story and wanting to know what would happen next. This is my first BJ Harvey book and I look forward to more.

This is also my first time listening to Stella Bloom I think, and she did a fantastic job. The entire book was narrated by her except the last 5 min epilogue. While I'm totally fine with that, it was strange to think it would be narrated by 2 narrators when it really isn't. Though, I've listened to Joe Arden before, and his 5 minutes or less was just as good as his normal narration. A really funny hot mess of a listen.
