This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

A modern way of finding love. One deserted island of luxury. Two people. Three get-out-of-jail-free cards. And a whole lot of possibilities.  

Melinda takes the advice of her best friend, Chris. She signs up for a new dating service that pairs you statistically with the one you're supposed to love. Finding it - love, that is - using the more conventional methods has not been a successful venture for Mindy, and with her biological clock ticking, she uses a more desperate method and takes the plunge into a possible happily ever after.  

The thing is, when she boards the boat to a secret location, she doesn't realize the man waiting for her is someone she's previously met.  

Chance encounters occur more frequently than we realize. Being blind to them is part of a bustling world. But being faced with them can lead to a hilarious three weeks between two opposites who might just attract.

laugh out loud

This book will have you busting out laughing at every page. I loved the characters especially Chris Mindy's best friend. Chris made this book freaking hilarious.

Not one to keep

This is my fist negative review for any book... ever! I couldn’t even finish the book. I felt like I was listening to a poorly written keystones cop skit.
The book is kinda all over the place in the beginning. Clumsy Girl gives up being a Dr. because one of her patients died, then works at an escort agency as a receptionist. While out she meets Ollie. Runs into him a few times, he gets her number & poof he’s gone from the book for several chapters. Then a client want to take her out. Nope she isn’t doing that. So her roommate persuades her to enter a reality show contest where she was, surprise, selected as a contestant. Through a series of unnatural & unbelievable occurrence (supposed to be the funny parts I guess) she gets to the destination only to see Ollie is her romance match. And through more unrealistic & not funny scenarios then get close & learn about each other.... and so on!
As I said above, I didn’t find this book funny at all. Trust me, I get this is fiction, but the scenarios were such a reach that they were just not funny. I’ve never been more glad to return a book as I am this this one.

Belle’s first audiobook great job

I have been waiting for a long time for Belle to get into the audiobook world. This book is really fun and really good. The narrator Larissa is great as well. Well done 😊 I’m ready for your next audiobook

Excellent Listenig

I was very excited when I found out that one of Belle Brooks Books was going to Audio (lets hope more do) & stoked that it was That Guy .... Its been a great book to listen to Arlie & Melinda slow to start but builds nicely with some funny interludes , one liners, & for me a couple of laugh out loud moments, for me Chris was way funnier in the book when I was reading & maybe that was what I was expecting when listening, wasn't a bad job at it , just didn't come across , For Me , for the most parts Narration was great , I loved reading this book & liked it just as much listening to it. So Get One Clicking Well Worth Money Spent . :-)

Not recommended

This got so tedious as to the heroine and her cringy self doubt, over and over. The "hilarious" parts just toilet humour - literally. Some crude phrases thrown in to liven it up. Horrible stereotype of a gay "bestie". Final plot line ridiculous. Am asking to use one of my refund options.
Also wish that Audible would include the narrators accent in description.
