This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

Critic Reviews

"Johnson follows her joyous debut with a delightful spin-off. Her rapier wit and comedic timing lure readers into a romance that proves laughter is best shared with those you love." ( RT Book Reviews)

This was fun, funny, enjoyable however...

I liked the premise, the story was good. The characters had lots of fun dialogue and funny situations. I enjoyed the back and forth banter and the narrator did a great job. I just wish the idea that there must be sex in a book to make it read worthy would be reconsidered. The one sex scene was unnecessary, didn’t add anything important to the story and too much information, although perhaps well written - just not necessary. I think a stimulating story engages the imagination without so many physical details .

Good & Disappointing At The Same Time

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The truce between Mirabelle and Whit. I had listened to two other books in this series before this one and not in order. First it was Evie, then Sophie and now Mirabelle. When I was listening to Sophie's story (As Luck Would Have It [book 1]) I couldn't wait to finish it because I loved Mirabelle and Whit's interaction more and it made me laugh! But shortly after this book starts, they have a truce which completely sucked because their bickering is what was so funny.

What didn’t you like about Carmen Rose’s performance?

I didn't like her voice for Whit. I have heard 4 audiobooks done by Carmen Rose and this one has got to be the most disappointing. It's like she couldn't come up with a voice for Whit and so at times when "he" was supposed to be speaking it was just her own voice; no change in tone or anything. Sometimes you had to really pay attention from the transition to Whit speaking and narration being done.

I really like Carmen Rose; her best accents for men by far is first Scottish and secondly Irish.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes, if rated PG-13.
The one thing I hate about romance books is that hardly any of them are clean & wholesome. I enjoy the stories more...so if any sexual scene comes up, I always fast forward and skip those parts.

Any additional comments?

If anyone plans on listening to the other books in the series, the women don't get any better and neither do the men...I think they were better off not being in a relationship!
