Audiobook Review: Never Have I Ever by Lauren Blakely

Never Have I Ever
By Lauren Blakely
Narrated by Amanda Ronconi and Jason Clarke

Blurb:
What happens when two frenemies can't stop pushing each other's buttons? Find out in this tender, laugh-out-loud-funny romance from number-one New York Times best-selling author Lauren Blakely, available in audio first! 

Never Have I Ever been so infuriated by a man I wanted to kiss.

They say opposites attract, but I beg to differ. Combust is more like it. Because every single time I talk to Zach Nolan, I see red.

The too-good-looking, too-smart, too-effortlessly-charming single dad who works down the hall from me has turned getting under my skin into a sport. Call it the battle of wits between the wedding planner and the divorce attorney.

Trouble is, when we’re forced into closer quarters, planning an engagement party for our best friends, I start to see his other sides.

And I fear I’m falling for the enemy.

***

I’m not out to make friends. My goals are simple - fight till the end for my clients, and my family.

The last thing I need is a vibrant, outgoing, snarky, and surprisingly big-hearted wedding planner to spend my precious free time with...except, watching Piper bond with my daughter just might break down the cinder block walls I’ve built around my heart these last few years.

Second chances don’t come around for guys like me...or do they?

Viviana's Review: 
OMG this was awesome!! When a great story gets paired up with phenomenal narrators it magic!! NEVER HAVE I EVER is a beautifully written story filled with heart, great characters and completely a feel good factor! Lauren Blakely continues to raise the bar with her writing!!

The narrators... OMG, I already LOVED Amanda Ronconi, but this just deepens my love for her!! She brings an additional layer to the characters and as the saying goes, brings them to life! She was perfect for this books and I sincerely hope that Lauren will cast her in more of her books!! 

Sigh... Jason, Jason, Jason! You can do no wrong!! You continue to surprise me with your remarkable performances! Seriously, Jason can do it all! From singing to British accents to bringing the right amount of emotion (regardless if its anger, happiness, sadness and yes, sexiness). I can't imagine any other narrator that would have done Zac justice! Lauren warned me that I would LOVE his performance in NEVER HAVE I EVER, and she was oh so right!! 

If you want to listen to a heart felt story that includes second chances, kids that make you want to take them out for ice cream and to try shuffle board or mini golf (basically something new that neither of you have done) on a date (with someone new or your Love of many years), then NEVER HAVE I EVER is perfect for you!! 

Rating: 5 Stars - PERFECTION

Cover Reveal: Love and Linguistics by Tara Lain


Love and Linguistics
(Movie Magic Series, Bk 2) 
by Tara Lain

Blurb:

In his neighborhood, El Martin stands out, and that can be life threatening. Against the odds, he’s managed to graduate high school and then master IT. Now he’s desperate to get a good job to free his drunken dad and himself from the control of gang leader M2 and the drugs he sells. But with his piercings and his slang-ridden speech, El looks and sounds like a Bronx gangbanger, and potential employers won’t give him a second look. So when El hears about Henry Fairhaven, PhD, linguistics researcher and wealthy New York socialite, El takes his life in his hands to escape from M2 and ends up sleeping in the stairwell at Henry’s building, hoping to learn how to speak.

To Henry, who wants to prove himself as a scholar and not merely a rich dilettante, El isn’t only the most beautiful man he’s ever seen—he’s also the key to getting a paper published on Henry’s ground-breaking linguistics methods before a competitor beats him to the punch. But Henry doesn’t tell El the truth, and El thinks Henry’s helping him because he cares.

El’s dreams collide with Henry’s ambitions at the elegant Met Gala, where El captivates a prince of Silicon Valley. But the real collision comes when M2 tracks El down and Henry has to choose between the validation he craves and a future with the man he’s come to love.

Audiobook Review: Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues by Molly Harper

Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues
(Mystic Bayou #2.5)
by Molly Harper
Narrated by Amanda Ronconi and Jonathan Davis

Blurb:

A hilarious new standalone novella brimming with otherworldly charm from the reigning queen of paranormal romantic comedy Molly Harper!

Ingrid Asher is the newest resident of Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where shapeshifters, vampires, witches and dragons live alongside humans.

Ingrid doesn’t ask for much. The solitary tree nymph just wants to live a quiet life running her ice-cream shop in peace. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to shake her new neighbor, Rob Aspern, head of the League’s data science department and so good looking it just isn’t fair.

If there’s one thing Ingrid doesn’t need, it’s someone poking around in her business. But the more she gets to know the hunky mathematician, the more she finds herself letting her guard down. Can she trust him with her secrets, or will her past destroy everything?

Viviana's Review:
This was a great novella! I love this world and the characters that live in it! This was a perfect pick me up while we wait for the next installment in the series!

In true Molly Harper tradition, we get a story with humor, great characters, and narrators that rock! I'm thoroughly enjoying getting to know all of the residences of 
Mystic Bayou including Ingrid, the newest member of this magical community. 

This was a very cute and funny story that makes you want to get to know all of the Mystic Bayou series characters. Even though this is a novella, you get a full story! Also, this can be read as a standalone, however, you'll end up loving the story and wanting to read all of the books in the series! 




Rating: 4.5 Stars - I REALLY LOVED IT
