Publisher's Summary

I was not looking for a date. Another questionable relationship was the last thing I needed. Because trust me, they were all questionable.

But through a series of unfortunate events involving my cat and
his poor decision-making skills, I agreed to a set-up.

Except...the set-up is with the governor.

I am not political girlfriend material. For one, I’m a little bit crazy. For two, I have secrets.

But I also have a big crush on the governor. One little date can’t hurt, right? Spoiler: It can.

My big crush is going to end in big trouble.

5 The Unexpected Blind Date Stars!!

There’s something about how Erin Mallon brings life to a book that has me enchanted from beginning to end. I love how she can narrate both the Hero and Heroine making me fall in love even more with a book!!

I absolutely loved everything about this newest book by Ms. Aston. It’s filled with quirky humor and characters that had me laughing from beginning to end. Audrey is a girl that is trying to make her vintage clothing dreams come true and one day changes everything when a potential client invites her to meet her son who needs a date… Little did Audrey know her son was also the Governor that she is currently crushing
on!!

Warren Russo is the man of a lot of women’s dreams and she may or may not be stalking him on social media which creates all sorts of emotions when she’s introduced to him face to face…

“The thing is, my crush on the governor is of the normal variety. Meaning I haven’t stalked him on the internet. Much. Just regular run-of-the-mill socially acceptable kind of stalking.”

The inner conversations Audrey has with herself provided many snort inducing laughs and when you add in her “employee” Miller and her cat Gary and well the setup is perfect for a romance that I think Ms. Aston is the queen of!

I had to admit I found Warren Russo a little standoffish in the beginning… but seeing as he’s the governor I guess he can’t be anything but professional when he’s around his constituents… until he meets Audrey and well, let’s just say their repartee is on point!! I loved how Audrey is herself and it takes this man by surprise.

What’s also surprising to him is the attraction he feels towards this beautiful woman. She makes him think outside the political box that he’s usually in because of her quirkiness and frankness in her conversations and actions and he likes it…even if he won’t admit it at first!!
This book reads fabulously and once I sat down to enjoy the words that Ms. Aston has written I was hooked and couldn’t stop until I finished the book. This book is exactly what I needed right now and I highly encourage you to one-click this one and be ready to laugh, swoon and everything in between!!

OMG Loved this book!!!

So funny and great sexy times! The humor kept me laughing throughout the whole book - and that’s saying something for me! The story progressed at a good pace and I did not feel like to book was too long or too rushed.

I loved this book and I cannot recommend it enough! I quickly went to find more by this author as she is new to me! And, of course, Erin Mallon was her amazing self with the narration!

The Next Mrs Russo

I love Jana Aston's sense of humor in her writing. I always find myself laughing out loud with her stories and this was no exception. I absolutely adored this book. It is sexy and has a great balance of emotion and humor. The characters are quirky and fun and I love the banter. I have been so excited to have a new Jana Aston story and it definitely did not disappoint. I can't wait for more and to see what she has in store for us next! I also seriously have become a huge fan of Erin Mallon. This narrator completely brings the stories to life with their reading.

Loved it! Could not stop listening!

I was so excited to read The Next Mrs. Russo by Jana Aston. I have loved everything I have read by this author and this one was no different. Her characters are the best and the stories she writes are delightful and charming. So of course, I had to go and listen to it as well and I am so happy I did! Narrated by Erin Mallon, she was perfect as Audrey! Just perfect!

I loved Audrey so much. She was quirky, fun and has no filter most of the time. When she is set-up on a blind date, the last person she suspects to be meeting is the governor, Warren Russo. The same man she crushes from afar. Warren was harder to read. He was more on the serious side. On paper they could not be any different, but together they share great chemistry.

The Next Mrs. Russo by Jana Aston was such a great read and listen. I smiled the entire time I was reading and/or listening to this story and cannot recommend it enough. This is a must-read and/or listen!

Happy listening!

I love you, Jana Aston.

Seriously...if you are having a blah day or just want to smile and laugh, listen to anything from Jana Aston. Loved this book so much. Gary of course was the best. Crazy pets always make books better. Sweet, Steamy perfection. Highly recommend.

Such a cute story!

I related to Audrey so much and even though I'm not talented at anything. Jana is one of my all time favorites so I knew I'd enjoy the read.

Hilarious

I am still coming down from the Jana Aston high I had from this book. You expect it to be funny because, hello, Jana but this is so much more than that. Our lovely Audrey is a hot mess and I found her to be a cross between Everly and Payton for those of you that have read previous books by this author. She is beyond scattered in her personal life and it's so funny that a high school student, Miller, is the one to help her get her act together in some ways. He is great also and will need his own story down the road. Now back to Audrey, she has a huge crush on the governor, Warren Russo and when she is put face to face with him and all his sexy, moody, self she has trouble with her filter on her mouth and the fun begins.

Warren is single and busy and not looking for a date but his meddling mother has fixed him up with a nut case. But she is funny and interesting and extremely hot and even though she is probably crazy and not in a good way he is drawn to her so lets see where this goes.

This book is beyond funny and super hot but it is also emotional. Audrey is a mess but there is a reason for that and she is talented but just needs a break to get her business up and running. Warren is older and in charge but he needs a little crazy in his life too and Audrey is just what he needs.

Erin Mallon is fabulous narrating this book. She was the perfect choice to bring Audrey's crazy to life. Love her voice and she did a great job. Loved it!!!

Rom-com at its best!

Rom-com at its best. Audrey and Warren’s banter will make you laugh out loud, repeatedly as well as swoon. This was such a great read and the supporting characters add so much to the storyline you won’t want to put it down. Fantastic narration by Erin Mallon!!! An absolute must listen.

Banterific

Jana Aston gives good banter and oh my Erin Mallon brings it to life. The way she pronounced Guv'nor had me snort laughing out loud ever time. When I ready the story in my head I had East End cockney, Erin's was better. Audrey is quite hilarious, totally quirky and lovely. Warren is a bit of a grump but hot and weirdly talented in home maintenance.
Their meet cute was adorably awkward.
Her self appointed intern, Michael, is a hoot. Warren's mum is entirely in her own world sorting things to be the way she feels they should be. You'll love Gary, he plays an integral part in the story.
I loved this story. It was fun and super enjoyable. Erin's performance was, as always, fab.

Love this quirky heroine

Audrey Gibson is everything I love in a fun, quirky heroine. She is stumbling along not realizing what a real rock star she is, but Governor Warren Russo sees more than Audrey’s beautifully awkward and slightly loony exterior.

“He stares at me for a long moment, studying me as if he finds me fascinating, or crazy. Hard to tell. Finally he speaks. “Don’t fall in love with me. I’m not in the mood.”

This story had me snort-laughing on one page and totally swooning on another. I was reminded just how much I’ve missed this author’s brand of quirky humor.

“It’s a reminder that sometimes your worst moments can lead to opportunities you never expected. And that starting over can lead you to something even better.”

I switched between ebook and audiobook. I enjoyed both but narrator Erin Mallon really brought Audrey’s uniqueness to life on the audiobook.

Fantastic book

I really enjoyed this story. It made me laugh out loud, which is rare for me with books, and I really liked the main characters and how their relationship developed. Jana Aston somehow makes her books feel more authentic than other authors (who often end up writing shallow fluffy books). Great narration, too. Can’t wait for more books from this author.

I loved it!

The Next Mrs Russo is an irresistible, laugh out loud funny, sweet, and steamy romance. Audrey is adorable, crazy, and eccentric, whilst Governor Russo is the opposite, he’s serious, standoffish, and brooding, but they’re just perfect for each other. Erin Mallon is a great narrator and it’s an absolute must read/listen. I loved it!
