Publisher's Summary

How far would you go to get over a guy?

When Grace Emerson's ex-fiancé starts dating her younger sister, extreme measures are called for. To keep everyone from obsessing about her love life, Grace announces that she's seeing someone. Someone wonderful. Someone handsome. Someone completely made up. Who is this Mr. Right? Someone - exactly unlike her renegade neighbor, Callahan O'Shea. Well, someone with his looks, maybe. His hot body. His knife-sharp sense of humor. His smarts and big heart. Whoa. No. Callahan O'Shea is not her perfect man! Not with his unsavory past. So why does Mr. Wrong feel so - right?

A great accident!

I purchased this book by mistake, there is a book about urban legends with the same title. I generally don't buy this type of book, but I loved it. The narrator could not have been better. I have listed to over 1,000 audio books and she is one of the best I have ever heard.

Very glad I picked up this story!

Too good to be true by Kristan Higgins (Audio Edition)
Narrated by Xe Sands

Callahan O’Shea….. sigh….. what a great leading man. Loved his honest, straightforward approach, his flirty side and pretty much everything else about him. Grace is one lucky lady. I liked her character as well. Yes, she took a lot of guff from her family, and put herself out more than some might. She has spunk though, and goes for what she wants in life, instead of just trying to please her family, which I think is important.

I LOVED how the leads met it was great! You could feel the instant attraction and I couldn't wait to have them in the scenes together again. The fact that this is pretty much a clean/no sex book (it's implied not described) does not detract from the story at all. With Higgins wonderful skills at writing, I still feel the characters chemistry and passion for each other.

As always,with this author, I chuckled often throughout this story felt sadness, and was also shocked a few times. The narrator Xe Sands did a fantastic job.

Very glad I picked up this story!

Loved it!!

Thank you for bringing Kristan Higgins' older novels to audio. They are brilliant. I couldn't have enjoyed this couple more!
And as for Xe Sands, she is simply a genius comedic narrator. I could listen to her read the phone book.

Such a great listen!

I can't get over how great this book was! I was laughing out loud and people passing me in traffic wondered what I was doing. The characters were fantastic and hilarious. Margaret was the best character with her sly comebacks. Angus the pup was a cute touch too. Just great, I recommend it highly! Great narration as well.

Not Kristan Higgins’s best story

I usually love Kristan Higgins’s books, but had to struggle to finish this one. The main character was dishonest and whiney.

Pathetic characters

How on earth did a book with such a weak pathetic, belittling, emasculating heroine and a holier than though ex-convict get five stars is beyond me? At least it is Audible Escape and didn’t cost me anything .

XE Sands is fair narrator who has zero clue on how to read anyone over 45 and not make them sound like they are 100 years old. Hang with this 54 year old with a smoking hot 58 year old husband for awhile, especially on an ultra marathon race or watch my hunky man rock climb and I guarantee she would never make our age group sound debilitated and lame.

Cozy Read and Fabulous Narration

I enjoy Kristen Higgins books. I easily become immersed in the story. Xe Sands could narrate the phone book and I would listen to it.
