Publisher's Summary

Too Late...I Love You is the new novel from best-selling, award-winning author Kiki Archer.

Connie Parker isn’t convinced by this falling in love lark. Falling hurts, you end up with bruises and scars.

She has the perfect answer: She’ll write about love instead. But what happens when the novel-in-progress describes more about Connie’s own dull existence than she wants to admit? And when will she realize that her hero is beginning to resemble her new best friend Maria - a woman who seems to turn every simple outing with their three-year-olds into a fun-filled adventure for them all?

In trying to make sense of the puzzle of her life, Connie learns there is no perfect person. Just that person who'll fit you perfectly.

"The twists and turns and surprises just keep coming - listen to it now!" (Diana Simmonds, Curve Magazine)

Ridiculously funny and incredibly cute

This is my second book (audiobook, actually) by Kiki Archer, and it was as delightful as the first one (But She Is My Student).

Connie Parker’s life revolves around her three-year-old son Noah, a fact her boyfriend Karl fails to understand. Yet, while she loves her son more than anything, she’s sometimes bored with her daily life, and so decides to take writing as a hobby. She doesn’t believe in love (how could she, trying to make a family with a man she only dated for a couple of months before she got pregnant?), but Bonnie, her alter ego, does. Then Connie meets the beautiful and mysterious Maria, another mother at play group, and finds out life isn’t as straightforward as she thought.

Too Late… I Love You is ridiculously funny (sometimes in a very bitchy way, which gives it a guilty pleasure feel) and incredibly cute at the same time. The pedal-cart / scooter chase in Brighton had me trying not to laugh out loud in the street. There’s a hilarious gallery of secondary characters, most notably Connie’s best friend Ryan. He’s both the best and worst friend. While he and Connie were shopping, I was screaming in my head (I was on the tram by then) to Connie, “don’t listen to him, you’ve got fingers, sweetie!” As for the main characters, the interaction between Connie and Maria is wonderful from the start, and the chemistry is obvious.

The audiobook is exquisitely narrated by Ella Lynch, whose narration of A.E. Radley’s The Road Ahead I’d also enjoyed very much (plus, I’m always impressed by a narrator who manages to make children voices sound real), and I have the feeling Kiki Archer’s books work really well in audio, what with the quirky characters and entertaining dialogue. I hope I’ll get a chance to listen to another one soon.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

You'll Love It!

I received this audiobook free at my request and am leaving this review voluntarily.

Great writing and great narration combine in Too Late...I Love You to draw listeners into a very sweet emotional story that feels true to life. There are no moments where you find yourself saying, "That would never happen." Kiki Archer has penned a work with a very sentimental feel to it that when you're finished, you'll feel like you have had more of an experience than simply just listening to an audiobook.

Art Imitating Life...

I was only a few chapters in and knew I was going to love this book. As a new mother, a new writer and a new friendship leads Connie to take a good hard look at her life. While she attempts to do her best on all fronts she is made to feel less than by an unhappy partner. Her best friend sees it, her new Mommy friend sees it and in her writing she begins to see it. Throw questioning her sexuality and you have the makings of an often funny wild ride of young motherhood. The dialog is real (I’ve heard myself and others say these things) The characters are well developed and ring true. I found myself laughing out loud throughout the book in spite of the emotional topics. It’s light hearted without being frivolous. This book hit on so many topics I’m afraid to mention because “spoilers”.

The narration was excellent. Each characters voice is pitch perfect. Distinct voices which is a challenge due to that great dialogue I mentioned earlier. I will actually look for more by this Narrator and I’ve already purchased another book by this author!

***I was given a free copy of this book in lieu of an honest review. My honest review—I Highly Recommend

Cute Story

This was a very cute book, not much in the lines of steamy scenes but a very chick lit version of F/F book. Seemed like some parts could’ve been done without and was kinda slow at times. However I thought it was a nice story wrapped in a perfect bow at the end. The narrator was very entertaining.
I was given this credit in exchange for an honest review.

Great characters, realistic love story.

This brilliant book had me hooked from the beginning, I laughed, cried and spent moments on the edge of my seat.
The narrator brought the characters to life beautifully, teamed with the twists and turns and the emotional intelligence of the story line it depicted a realistic and enthralling love story, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

A sweet surprise

A few reviews ago I would say this is not my normal genre, however I have listened to a fair few similar titles to date so at last have a background for comparison.

Too Late... I Love You is a surprising delight. The characters are well rounded and identifiable. My favourite is the tyrannical mother-in-law who is just so delectably hate-able, and marvellously narrated; I've never known an audiobook character to be so believable. The same can be said for the rest of the cast. The narrator has done an incredible job giving all the characters their own individual and consistent voices

The plot is well structured and paced. The ups and downs of ending and burgeoning relationships is explored, in intertwining and often overlapping narratives.

If you want a listen with varied cast of interesting characters expertly narrated, I would recommend Too Late... I Love You.
