She just can't hold on to any of the women she goes out with. It's not because she's unlikeable, she simply can't handle commitment.

Val Mason is hoping to find the right woman to build a life with. At her best friend's weeklong pre-wedding party, she meets one who appears to have potential, and she's hooked. The only problem is, she's unknowingly hanging her hopes on the Temporary Girl.

I'm so happy right now.

First: Lori Prince is one of my favorite narrators and I was happy she got to narrate a book from one of my favorite favorite authors! And y'all, she smashed it! I wonder how she kept her composure recording, I was cracking up!

Second: I know I mentioned it but, Robin Alexander is one of my favorite authors. Easily top 5 because of her ability to make me laugh. I own this book and was thrilled to see it on Audible. I want more Robin Alexander books on audiobooks.

Third: Now the book... I really loved this story and it made me crack up laughing so hard many times. The Romance kept me warm these winter nights. The laughter kept me smiling and sane. I desperately want 'butthole' shots now because they change your life.

I'll be giving this a listen a few more times and one of those books I will visit at least once a year. If you're looking for angst this doesn't have it... not really. No unnecessary breakups for the sake of drama and bringing the characters together after some melodramatic misunderstanding. It's a wholesome story that's not boring at all! Even the last scene will leave you either laughing or with a smile on your face.

I think by now you know, I highly recommend this! And If you haven't read or listened to 'Just Jorie' by Robin Alexander, go now, go find it and listen to it and be happy!!

Second Book in Series Misses the Mark

this was a second book in a series and the first book the main character had an English accent...it was part of the charm of the story. to not have that follow in the second book made it a true disappointment. The narrative was hard to really follow because the voices were too similar... so I think I would have preferred to read it... then listen to it audibly because it was hard to really follow.

Not for me!

Humour is good, but non stop humour? Not so good. I could'nt relate to the charachters either, so I did'nt last long with this one.

Hated the narration

I listened to the whole thing but it was a challenge. All the characters sounded the same and the voice was so irritating.

Lori Prince Nails It

This book was a breath of fresh air. I normally read dramas that consist if my crying at some point so this book was soooo needed. I never laughed like this with a book before and loved every moment. The author did a good job with the jokes and was very inventive but it was Lori Prince's narration that sold it so well. it could not have been performed any better. Thumbs up for both the writer and narrator. Thank you both for the warm laughter.

Always a joy

Reading/Listening to Rodin Alexander books is like getting together with old dear friends. Her stories are full, lively, warm and so funny you’ll literally laugh out loud and this book does not fail.

The story of Val and Jodi is a sweet and funny romance, with some real life thrown in. Jodi is not interested in a relationship due to bad family history. Val was quick to fall for women and ended up hurt in the end. The two women meet and a wedding celebration and Sparks fly.
The characters in this book are hilarious, loyal and loving. I cannot pick a favorite character because they are were my favorites.
Thus book makes you long for your forever friends and nudges you to plan a trip with them all.

If you love romance and enjoy a good laugh listen to this book! And if you Don’t, you should still listen to this book. You will not regret it!

The narration is superb as always. Lori Prince delivers every time!

Sweet, funny, real.

I loved this story. It had me laughing out loud. More than once while listening to this audiobook I was laughing so hard I would have to back it up and let my wife listen unable to just tell her what was funny through my laughter. However, this book isn’t just fluff. Please don’t misinterpret my appreciation of the comedy to mean the book doesn’t have substance. This story is packed with interpersonal relationship dynamics that make-up our everyday messy real lives. This story is real, believable, messy, fun, and sweet. I’ve listened to all of Robin Alexander’s audiobooks and have enjoyed them all, but this one is by far my favorite. It’s a repeat listen for sure!

This was hilarious

This book was funny from beginning to end; I think it has to be one of the funniest lesbian books I have listened too. It was well narrated by Lori Prince as always. Well done to Robin Alexander for writing such a brilliant book. I would defiantly listen to this book again. I look forward to more books from this author.

Well... wow

I was really surprised by this boon as I absolutely loved it! I listed to the sample and wasn’t overly sold but got it anyway and wow! The story is brilliant and the voice actress makes it all the better! The characters are really well written and really believable! I actually laughed so much through this book with the humour through it! Renee and Val are 2 of my favourite characters! So glad I decided to go with this book cannot recommend enough!!!

Amazing!

I have listened to a lot of books but have never reviewed any. This book is so very very good that I just had to. Absolutely hilarious in the best ways possible. I have never laughed so much while reading or listening to a book. I have always loved Lori Prince as a narrator and she doesn't disappoint. This was my first book by Robin Alexander and if this is the standard, it won't be the last.

Laugh out loud funny.

This Im sure will be on my re listen list. Lori Prince does her usual awesome narration bringing characters and dialogue to life seamlessly.

Alexander has written another multi character comedy leaving you with the feel good factor thats never wrong.
