Publisher's Summary

Steven Thompson had a bad year. A string of mean, kinky (the alarming kind, not the good kind), and crazy dating debacles combined with a boss who appears to be experiencing male-prenatal-psychosis means Steven's stress levels are high. They're so high, he's decided to quit dating and focus instead solely on his job.

Until he meets Dr. Ken Miles.

Doctor Ken Miles is having a fantastic year. His hard work is paying off in a big way...professionally. But his social life? Not so much.

Until he meets Steven Thompson.

Steven isn't so sure about Dr. Miles, but Ken is 100 percent certain about Mr. Thompson. And even though both men know full well that the key to getting what you want out of life is hard work, they can't seem to make them - together - work.

Will they ever get on the same page? Or just keep sticking to the same old script?

Contains mature themes.

Terrible

The narrator sounded like an absolute buffoon. It’s as if he’s playing a character on Saturday night live a d he’s purposely disguising his voice to sound irritating. It set the whole tone for the book. I only continued to read because it was a penny Reid smarty pants romance. With the right narrator, if could’ve been so much better. Did Stella not listen to the narrator?!

love this series

love the spin off of Penny Reid's series Knitting in the City and the Winston Brothers. This is my favorite from the first launch of the smartypants romance. loved Steven from Knitting in the city and this spin off does him justice. and love that DKM is put in it too, since we got a different glimpse of him in Friends without benefits. i go into this series not reading up about plot, to be surprised and boy was I! loved the book from start to finish. the narration though...not my favorite. he also narrated Weight Expectations (which i also liked very much) and he is not my favorite. wish there were two narrators because he sounded so much the same as both. definitely recommend this book and series!

Confusing Performance

This book really needed more than one narrator. It was often confusing trying to figure your who was talking.

Another great book by Smartypants

I love love love Steven and DKM and was so excited to be able to experience their story again over audio while I was busy at work!! You will grow so attached to these faulty/loving/aggravating characters. Narrator was okay (it’s rare that they match up with the tone you imagine) but the story is good enough to overcome any faults with the narration.

I read the kindle version of this book a little over a year ago and adored it. It was my first Pennyverse book and it led me down the penny Reid rabbit hole.

You don’t need much knowledge about the Knitting In the City books/world to be able to follow this story!! I had no prior info and wasn’t confused(just curious!)

WILL read anything else Stella Weaver does and look forward to new smartypants books.

loooooved

I've loved this story since it was fanfiction on Wattpad. I loved it even more when it was revised and turned into canon as part of Penny Reid's Smartypants Romance publishing arm. And I have adored listening to Alex Kydd bring Stella's interpretation of these characters to life in such a genuinely lovely way. Recommended especially for those who are fans of the Knitting in the City series however can be listened to as a standalone. 5 stars all round.
