Publisher's Summary

Saying “I do” has never been such a mess. 

Marlee Medford just got dumped. Yes, things have become ho-hum in her longtime relationship, but she was two days away from walking down the aisle with the man she thought was her forever when he called it off. Convincing herself that they’d be able to reignite their spark once the wedding craziness settled? That was easy. Suddenly finding herself without a fiancé? Not so much. Marlee needs to regain control of her life, and a weekend away with her friends is a solid first step. 

One of Denver’s best up-and-coming chefs, perpetual bachelor Eli Howard, isn’t into serious relationships - especially the kind that ends in marriage. As if to prove his point that they aren’t worth the trouble, the wedding he was supposed to be catering just fell apart. Feeling oddly protective of the jilted bride - his little sister’s best friend - his weekend plans now involve a trip to Sin City with her group of friends. But it looks like he had a bit too much fun in Vegas when he wakes up married…wedding night included. 

Marlee’s attempts at getting her life back together are failing miserably. Her ex-fiancé is taking the house, her chihuahua is intent on a love affair with Eli’s sneakers, and she’s now accidentally hitched to the guy who can't even say the word marriage. With their quickie annulment denied, Eli and Marlee just have to hang tight until the divorce goes through. It’s just a little divorce amongst friends, what’s the worst that could happen? 

Take It Off the Menu is book three of the Mile High Matched series, but stands alone and can be heard in any order. If you love a hunky caterer and an accidental marriage then this book is for you! Buy now for a fun, friends-to-lovers romance!

Enjoyed this sweet story a lot!!

I've actually never heard of this author before this audiobook and I thought it was completely adorable. Eli and Marley were so easy to like as a couple and seperatly. Marley was a huge hit for me. I'm generally wary of trust fund characters. They are usually full of self absorbed and oner indulgent. Marley wasn't like that though. She was sweet and really down to Earth. I liked her instantly. Eli is career driven and a bit closed off. I found myself laughing out loud at their antics and I even shed a few tears over their sweetness. Overall, I can't wait to dive into the other books in the series. I didn't realize until I was neck deep that I started with the last book. Oh well, I'll go backwards.

Lance Greenfield was perfectly fine as Eli. Nothing really stood out as special or bothersome. Nevada Navarre was a bit uppity and perkey sounding and it was a lot but i can see Marley fitting into that voice easily.

good H and h

a couple smiles near the beginning. I finished the book an hour ago and I'm still mad at the way her parents treated her. Eli, the H, is just a great guy. I'm really proud of the way the h dealt with the difficulties that came at her. glad it was AE, once was enough. peace

Fantastic romcom!

Heiress Marley is 2 days away from her wedding when her fiancé calls it off. Enter her best friend, Sadie and her older brother Eli. They pack up Marley and move her into Eli’s apartment. A quick trip to Las Vegas leads to a drunken marriage and Marley’s funds being cut off by her parents. Yep, the ‘rents sided with the ex fiancé. As Marley and Eli wait for the divorce to go through, Marley finds happiness without money. There’s a meddling and troublemaking Russian grandmother, Babushka, an amorous Chihuahua named Lothario and true friends. You will laugh, you will be indignant, but most of all, you will love this book!

Fabulous RomCom & Narration🎧 A Heartfelt Delight!

I loved everything about this book, from Christina Hovland’s wonderful writing style to the fabulous characters and storylines she created. The book captured both my attention and my heart right from the start and held it straight to the end. Marlee Medford fiancé Scott ends things with her two days before their wedding. She calls her best friends, Sadie, Becca & Kellie and they come running to show her support, Sadie brings her brother Eli for security purposes, in case Scott returns. Eli goes because of his protective nature and he knows the trouble his sister and her friends can get into. When they decide a trip to Vegas is in order he is invited along too. I loved what happens in Vegas, the craziness and the dares. A night of too much partying turns hot and steamy after a not so fake wedding. Too funny, but her parents did not think so and cut her off from her trust. Marlee starts working, first with Eli in his catering business even though she is a disaster in the kitchen. But Jase steals her away when he sees her skills with flower arranging. It is also great to see Babushka again and all her shenanigans. I loved how everything plays out in this book, it is well plotted with plenty of drama and humor, some heartfelt moments and some hot ones too. It was great to see the characters from previous books and the news ones too, shout out to Lothario, LOL! Christina Hovland, thank you for this fabulous story, this series is one of my favorites!

Neva Navarre and Lance Greenfield are awesome narrators and voice artists. They bring the characters to life giving each their own voice and personality. Their portrayal of the characters is spot on, they sound as you picture them to. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another fabulous listen🎧

Hysterically funny and charming

Christina Hovland's "Take it Off the Menu" is a sweet, hysterically funny story featuring wonderful, well-developed, and likeable characters. In some places, the secondary characters almost stole the show from main characters Eli and Marlee, especially Lothario the chihuahua and Babushka, Eli's friend Jase's elderly Russian grandmother. One of my favorite parts of this book was Lothario's love affair with shoes (and various other inappropriate objects). His name was certainly an appropriate one!

The male lead character, Eli, was a lovable grump who kind of reminded me of a grown-up Oscar the Grouch. Even though he thought he'd had his fill of responsibility as a teenager, when he stepped up to help his family through a difficult time, meeting Marlee helped Eli realize that there could be more to life than constantly working to achieve his goal of opening his own restaurant. Marlee, who was sweet, generous, and genuinely seemed to care about others, was a great influence on Eli. She deserved to be treated so much better than she was by her ex-fiance, Scotty, so it was lovely to see the way Eli came to care for her while also helping her take her first steps towards independence.

Overall, I highly recommend "Take it Off the Menu" for all romantic comedy fans. The rest of the series looks to be just as good as this book, and I plan to check them all out soon.
