Publisher's Summary

After catching her husband in a compromising position, Finley Granger finds herself in a new hell: reentering the dating world. When she moves in with her grandmother, her great-aunt, and their best friend, Finley finds herself surrounded by a trio of well-meaning yet bumbling matchmakers.

In spite of their efforts, Finley only has eyes for one person, and that’s Zeke Masters - the 6’4”, impossibly built, and ridiculously good-looking new man in town. Along with her nether regions, Finley’s journalistic spidey-senses tingle as to why he’s on sabbatical from Seattle. Is he on the lam or escaping a bad breakup? What's his story?

As Finley finds herself reluctantly drawn to the gorgeous IT guy, she can’t help but wonder: Should she indulge in a rebound tryst with the mysterious Zeke, or has she finally met her match?

Shelf Awareness is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be enjoyed as a stand-alone, and is book four in the Green Valley Library series, Green Valley world, Penny Reid Book universe.

The audio takes away from the experience :(

I am hanging in for the story for the fact that it’s in the Penny Reid universe, but I’m having a difficult time with this book being read to me. I’m also missing some of the character interaction before and after sentences and some of the banter seems incomplete. But as much as I like he plot, I can’t get past the fact that it sounds like someone aloof is reading words off a page and not actually feeling the words. The same tone of voice is used throughout the whole book, with the exception of pretty decent supporting character voices. There is no real change to the cadence to draw the listener in, and it really does sound like it’s just someone glossing over a grocery list, not a complex story that contains grief, romance, seduction, family arguments, etc. I really want to be caught up in this story, but may rely on reading the book instead of listening to it.

Not a fan of the narrator

The narrator really made this story a bit difficult to listen to. Any passionate scenes were almost read in a monotone way. It’s so unfortunate because the story was pretty hilarious. I think it would have been better if I just read the book.

this is the first time I've ever used the rate to slow down the narrator! but once I did that, it was a more enjoyable listen

Awful narration

I love this book series so much and then made the mistake of purchasing this audiobook. I am SO disappointed. The slow pace of the story was just made worse by the poor narration. I had to give up by chapter 8.
