Publisher's Summary

A full-length stand-alone romantic comedy from USA Today best-selling author R.S. Grey.

Candace

Kat and Yasmine! Do not dally! Come straight home after work. Kat, don’t take the long route from the subway station just so you can pass by Cute Hot Dog Guy. This is important!

I’ve had the best day. You won’t believe it. There I was in my preschool classroom, washing a bit of poo out of some soggy trousers, when this absolute babe came to collect his nephew from my class.

Truthfully, I thought I’d blacked out for a moment when I first saw him. He was a proper hunk with glorious brown hair, quite tall, and he had these arms. Are muscly arms supposed to turn me on? I’m panting just thinking about them.

Anyway, he told me he’s a professional foosball player. At least, I think that’s what he said. The tots can get quite loud near pickup time.

Yasmine

Foosball? What are you on about? Have you gone mad?

Kat

Oh sod off. So what if I like to have a good look at Hot Dog Guy’s arse on my trek home after a hard day’s work? It’s called self-care.

Candace

Kat, you’re hopeless. Yasmine, yes - foosball! I suppose it’s a big thing over here in the States? We must investigate and learn everything we can.

By the way, he’s called Logan.

Logan + Candace. I think that sounds quite nice! I can hear the wedding bells now. Dum dum da-dum.

Yasmine

Oh good grief. I suppose we can do some snooping when I get home. I’ll grab wine on my way.

Kat

I’ll grab hot dogs.

The Trouble with Quarterbacks is a hilarious romance about unlikely love found between a British preschool teacher and the professional quarterback who sweeps her off her feet.

Unfortunately DNF

Normally I love books by this author but I had a really hard time with the heroine in this one. She is portrayed as a caricature almost - like Bridget Jones in an over the top way, with more naïveté thrown in unnecessarily. In addition, the female narrator was really hard to listen to. I think maybe it’s her dialect, but I felt Teddy had a better female British accent than she did. That probably isn’t a fair assessment since a lot of that is preference though. The other thing that really bothered me is there are multiple instances of body hair shaming by the heroine’s roommates, and it’s accepted by the heroine herself; and I don’t mean just an offhand snark or comment - one roommate claimed that seeing the heroine’s bikini-area hair growth made her (the roommate) physically sick (the heroine had grown it out “long enough to get it waxed”, so we aren’t talking like braids or something). Never mind that they watch each other shower regularly - to each her own I guess. Basically all of my dislike and the reason I stopped listening had to do with the female mc and the female narrator. Teddy did a great job as always, and I actually really was interested in the main male character but not enough to listen for 4 more hours :/

Read is much better

When I read this book I laughed out loud and really enjoyed, but the audiobook version I didn't care for. Teddy Hamilton was great, but the female narrator, which is most of the book, was terrible. She didn't come across quirky and funny as written and her Logan impersonation was awful. So glad I read the book before I listened to it. Just wish I didn't have to waste a credit to figure it out.

Great story, but narration killed it for me

I love Teddy Hamilton, but the 7 (out of 26) chapters he narrates amount to a grand total of 1:05 (out of 9:20). Violet Wilson is new to me and, though her female voices are absolutely FANTASTIC, her male voice sounded like a middle-aged woman with a smoker’s rasp trying to be seductive. The story itself is hysterical (typical R.S. Grey), and her narration of the 3 female leads only makes it more so, but, 3 hours in I couldn’t handle her male voice knowing I still had 6 more hours to go & I ended up returning the book.

Story was funny, narration was distracting

Let me start by saying I love this author's writing. All books are an automatic download for me. For this book I liked the characters (all the female characters are very memorable) and the story line was cute. The female lead was hilarious like in many of R.S. Grey's novels. The narration was a bit distracting as any time the British female narrator had to read in an American accent it was way off and any time the American male narrator had to read in a British accent it was also way off.

Five Stars for Violet

I have always held back from reading Rachel’s books and wait for the audiobooks because she always chooses the best narrators to bring her characters to life. This time was no exception. It’s the first time I’ve had the privilege of hearing Violet Wilson, and although I like Teddy Hamilton, she totally made this audiobook. Rachel’s books are so hilarious and full of heart that you cannot help but smile throughout them. Logan was a great character and I really loved him, but Candace was adorably cute (and I know she hated to be called cute). She made me laugh throughout this book starting from the time she thought Logan played Foosball to making friends with the bodyguard. Her wittiness, along with her kindness was refreshing to read, especially in a year when everything seems to go wrong. I love Rachel’s books and I hope she keeps giving us more wonderful characters to love.
