Publisher's Summary

My name is Lennox Brooks, and I'll admit I've made a lot of mistakes. I don't take the big risks, I cover my insecurities with snark, I've shown my crazy a few more times than I would've liked, and I've been trying and failing at love pretty much since I first grew tits. Weirdos, mama's boys, the over-coiffed, and underwhelming, I've been out with them all, just read my blog. I've got horror stories that would curl your toes and singe your nose hairs, but none of them compare to the toad who started it all: Ellis Walker.  

He was the boy next door, the charming, infuriatingly gorgeous one who broke my heart and disappeared without a trace. Now, he's back and determined to throw my life into chaos, dredging up painful memories just when things were getting good.  

But the thing is there are always two sides to every story. I've spent the better part of my life hating him for everything he put me through, but without that resentment clouding my judgment, how will I ever resist him?  

Love is complicated, appearances are deceiving, and sometimes, you have to kiss a whole lot of frogs before finding your prince.

This was a first for me. from this author.. and it did not disappoint! I loved the idea of this story.. a Blog about dating mishaps.. and the whole lotta frogs title... Very clever! The main character Lennox was a bit annoying with her whole.. Oh you stood me up jilted act.. Even after she received an explanation of why.. but it all turned out ok.. and overall this was a really good listen! Heather does a great job bringing this book too life and I loved the opportunity to listen and review this one! 👍

Cute Frienemies to Lovers romance

This is one of my favorite sub-genres and this book is a great addition to my rom-com collection. It has the perfect mix of witty banter, funny inner monologues, and drama. Samantha Harris did an amazing job with this story and I cannot wait to read more.

The narration was really good. I enjoyed Heather's multiple voices and cannot wait to hear what other ones she has.

Such a fun story! Great acting!

I read most of this through the audio book, and then finished reading the last few chapters (I was driving when I started!)

Both the author and narrator were new to me.

They both left me wanting to read/listen to more!

Samantha Harris has a quick witted, fun, way of writing a story. Great character development, great arc, and an overall great idea.

My only minor flip, was the blog posts. It took me several chapters to reconcile that it wasn’t running concurrently with the story itself. This didn’t take away from the story, but did leave me mildly kerfuffled for a bit.

Heather Firth did an absolutely amazing job with this book. Each character was easily discernible, consistent, and full of personality. I throughly enjoyed listening to her read this! I can’t wait to experience more of her narrations.

My Two Pennies

Narration wise, I was hooked. Heather Firth did a great job not wanting me to ever hit pause. 3.8 A quirky, lighthearted read. Overall I enjoyed this story and Lennox getting her thoughts out on her personal blog page, very relatable. There were moments were my interest was fading but over all I thought the will she won’t she between the guys was good. The characters all had their own personalities and blended together well. I’m happy I continued through to the end because you’re guaranteed a HEA.

Another chance to listen to Heather Firth

I enjoyed the book but had trouble at times with Lennox carrying on about how Ellis had treated her in school while she crushed over him. But that’s what brings the story to life, Lennox was finding herself and looking for love with her blog as her release.

I was thinking maybe she should have approached Sawyer to suggest a friendship sooner since she felt no sparks from him. But that’s what made the story interesting, Lennox finding herself. I really enjoyed the secondary love story that becomes with her two best friends and you do feel for her through the book.

I’m still impressed with Heather Firth’s narration and feel she brings stories to life.

I was provided this audiobook for my honest opinion, and it’s a cute story done by a fabulous narrator. Worth your time to get ahold of and spend the time with. 4.5 stars.

Not what I expected! Good read!

Lennox is an editor assistant who was wronged by her childhood crush Ellis. She has gone through the ringer with her dates since and well, she decides to write a blog about it. When Ellis comes back to town she has conflicted feelings. Meaning she hates him. Then Sawyer comes swooping in and he is perfect. So what will Lennox do? It’s a fun way to look at the dating game but also a lesson on letting go. Lennox took her sweet time to let go and that put me off a bit but not much. Drama drama drama!

Blog Post # Dating Horror Stories!

whole lotta FROGS by Samantha Harris is absolutely cleverly designed & written with a perfect cover & title.
Ellis Walker and Lennox Brooks adorable romance is blended with crazy banter and humour that keeps you giggling through the entire listen. Lennox Brooks dating woes is told in a arrangement chapter then blog post about that chapter like a diary tell all. Drama filled angst like the old saying says you have to to date a whole lot of frogs to find/realize who your prince charming is. Supporting character's accentuate & bring so much more character to the story. I adored the smart & sassy, yet stubborn characteristics of Lennox and the sweet & swoon worthy ones of Ellis. Overall, a light, fun & hilarious listen. I definitely plan on listening to this one again.
Narrator Heather Firth's performance was flawless. The tone and pace flows through smoothly. Her performance brings it into a real life experience.

This was a cute story about looking for love in all the wrong places. It stressed the valuable lesson of going for what you want and not playing the victim in life! It also stressed that celebration of someone else’s fortunes doesn’t make you any less fortunate! Samantha Harris did a great job of bringing to light the importance of love and caring for others! Heather Firth did a good job of narrating!

Fun book

New author for me. Enjoyed the story. Heather did a good job of bringing the book to life. I was luck enough to not have any dating horror stories but I know others that were not as lucky.

Funny and addictive

Lennox! What a character! ... The frogs she had to kiss (and tell! Great Blog! Brutal!)
Samantha Harris wove a fantastic story with a good backing of characters to support Lennox’s crazy/insecure/self deprecating one. Tightly woven friends and family and those frogs! Too funny!
I loved Heather Firth’s voice for this book she characterised perfectly and brought Lennox’s snark and crazy shining through!
A great listen I would definitely recommend this one, such a spirit lifter.

DO NOT JUDGE THIS BOOK BY ITS COVER!

This has been one of the greatest listens for me this year. Do not judge it by the cover! That is just in regards to the heroine's blog. It is so hilarious I was laughing out loud most of the time. Ellis is definitely the type of "frog" I'd kiss in search of Prince Charming!

Got to kiss the frog before u find a prince

The only thing is how many frogs are out there?
Lennox has been through lots of frogs and still hasn't found her Prince or has she?
Growing up Ellis was the bain of her life but wss he actually as bad as Lennox remembers?
When Ellis moves back home all the memories are flung back in her face but can she forgive and forget?

Fun slow burn romance

I grabbed this book because I loved the cover and title but the story and narration didn't disappoint either. The set up of blog posts through out the story were both fun and insightful and the various "frogs" she encounters were as well. I liked the slow burn between Lennox and Ellis, and I thought Ellis was a lot of fun. The supporting characters all added a lot of great content to the story. I thing that maybe her scared, hesitation was played out just a little too long and could have been cut a chapter or two shorted and that would have given us a little more time to not feel like the resolution scene was so rushed. Other than that I really enjoyed the story and thought it was a great read.
The narration was was great and matched both characters perfectly!

Fun, cute, quirky second chance romance

This was such a cute, fun, quirky second chance romance. Great story and characters. I loved how Lennox documented her dating escapades. I didn't know if Lennox would get out of her own way and take a chance on Ellis.
This story and narration drew me right in and I hated when it ended and I had to leave these characters. New author for me and I loved her writing style. Will be checking out more of her stories.
Great narration which added to my overall enjoyment of this story.

Enticing Heartwarming Listen!

I absolutely loved this story! It was a pleasure to listen as Ellis and Lennox's love story plays out. The author does an excellent job keeping the listener engaged the entire time in this well written novel. The characters were super easy to like and were incredibly relatable. This heartwarming listen has some really cute and chuckle worthy moments; however, is also a story of healing, forgiveness and moving forward. Plus, I can't help myself, I love a good happily ever after with some steamy scenes!

The narrator did an excellent job in this performance. Her voice seemed to really bring out the emotions between the characters and made me feel what the characters where feeling. I genuinely look forward to more from this up and coming narrator!

Soooo Relatable!

Whole Lotta Frogs by Samatha Harris is sooo funny and embarrassingly relateable for me. The expression "you have to kiss a lotta frogs before you find your prince" brings this story to life. While I may not be able to relate to every scenario in this novel, I can relate to a large number of them....and have some of my own. You know what they say....you have to learn how to laugh at yourself sometimes.
Then when you least expect it you meet a guy and think - is karma throwing me a bone....or reeling me in for a bigger disappointment - sometime over analyzing is our worst method of coping. Truly a funny book as you live vicariously through the main character Lennox and her pitfalls in her dating life, eccentric mother, and her horrible boss.
Heather Firth did an amazing job in bringing all the characters to life giving them a fantastic personality, charm and great timing when delivering the sense of humour this book demanded.

Wonderful!

This was a wonderful listening experience. The slow burn story had plenty of humor and heat. Loved the characters and rooted for them the whole time. The writing was sow of the highest quality I’ve seen and the narration was flawless. I almost always hear mistakes, mispronunciations, and audio gaffs. This had none. Amazing!

If you want to smile, this is the book for you!

In search of a book to make you smile and swoon? Look no further, Samantha Harris has the book for you. With a title like Whole lotta Frogs, I was a little hesitant about what to expect. But once into the story, it totally makes sense! Lennox writes a blog about dating, and what better to refer to the men on her search for Prince Charming than call them frogs? Little does Lennox know who her Prince will turn out to be! Ellis, the boy next door comes home, and the feelings of betrayal and teenage torture returns to Lennox. Now the fun begins. With witty banter, incredible blog posts, work related issues and decisions of the heart, we get to enjoy the journey to love Lennox takes. With friends like hers to keep things real, and dates that will just make you laugh, the book is full of enjoyment.

The wonderful comedic timing of Heather Firth truly brings this story to life. I can't get enough of her narrations, with her ability to give me both laughter and heartfelt portrayals in her performances.Her voices are spot on and I can see the story unfold as she tells it.
