Beatrice Baker may be a struggling artist, but she believes all hardships have silver linings...until she follows her boyfriend to New Orleans and finds him with another woman. Instead of turning those lemons into lemonade, she drinks lemon drop martinis and keys the wrong man's car. Now she works for Huxley Marlow of the Marvelous Marlow Boys, getting shoved in boxes as an on-stage magician's assistant. A cool job for some, but Bea's been coerced into the role to cover her debt. She also maybe fantasizes about her boss' adept hands and what else they can do

I really enjoyed this as a whole. I loved the characters (especially Huxley 🤤) and the entire plot and premise of the story.

My only issue was with the narration. It wasn’t terrible but there were just small parts that annoyed me about the narrator when voicing Beatrice. I found she made her whiney and immature sounding. I think had I read this as a printed book I would’ve been mesmerized by it. Other than that, it was sparkling with magic & beauty.

A very fun and sweet read!

He's That Guy. You know, the hero in almost every romance novel. The super-rich, powerful CEO who is beyond sexy. Lives in a penthouse. Is wicked in bed. Has massive.... feet. Is kind of a jerk, but really he's not because he harbors some major secret that, once revealed, explains why he is the way he is - therefore completely redeeming himself and making all the listeners who hated to love him swoon....

DNF. Made it through exactly 2 hours 21 minutes and 37 seconds of this dreadful audiobook.

I hated the main character. She was annoying, rude, immature and entitled (getting mad at the main male character for being rude to her when she broke into HIS house, went through HIS things and put on HIS clothes. Like who do you think you are???); all the things I hate in a person. And the narrator did a great job of making sure I hated this character (which, I think, kind of makes the narrator really great in a way - it wasn’t them, it was the character who sucked, even if I wasn’t supposed to hate them [I honestly have no idea if the author wrote the character that way on purpose]).

I stopped listening when the character basically sexually assaulted the main male character, throwing herself drunkenly at him and kissing him and then BLAMING HIM for making the kiss bad for her when he didn’t reciprocate. Like girl, f*ck you, you selfish, self-entitled little brat. If this were written in the reverse and the man had come onto the woman like that and was behaving the same way, no one would be here for it. Heroines like this in other books usually have some sort of redeeming quality, but this character has none whatsoever. So why are we 5-staring this??? I guess I’ll never know and I absolutely don’t care to find out.

I normally like Andi Arndt’s narration but I feel like her voice just didn’t fit this character and that was a big throw off for me. It was a good story but I just personally didn’t like the narration for this character.

This was sooo hard to get into. The storyline is thrilling at first but it felt like the author was throwing too much at the reader at once which made the plot hard to keep up with; I kept finding myself asking “wait, what’s going on?”. I couldn’t finish this but since the narration stellar and the plot had potential, I’m hoping I can re-read it another time and find it more enjoyable (or at least actually get through the whole thing).

Célian Laurent. Manhattan royalty. Notorious playboy. Heir to a media empire...and my new boss. I could have impressed him, if not for last month's unforgettable one-night stand. I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory - namely, his wallet. Now he's staring me down like I'm the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I'm supposed to take it. But the thing about being Judith "Jude" Humphry is I have nothing to lose. Brooklyn girl. Infamously quirky. Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.

I’d read this before listening to the audiobook and absolutely loved it (my review of the story can be found here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2672848813)! I still enjoyed the audiobook but there were just some small things in the narration that bothered me.

I usually like Grace Grant as a narrator but I felt her voice was too mature to be that of a 23 year old in 2018(/2019). Granted Jude is rather mature and wise beyond her years but the voice just didn’t fit the character in my opinion (but this could also be because I had a voice for Jude in my head since I’d previously read the book). I really liked Jacob Morgan as Célian but I found at times he was just reading (particularly towards the end of his parts), but he did do a great job of voicing Célian’s dry humour and sarcasm (loved that)!

I also noted that pronunciations of names changed throughout the book (i.e. Mathias was pronounced MAT-tee-us at the beginning by Jacob Morgan then Mat-TEE-us during some parts towards the end and Célian was pronounced Say-lee-on by Grace Grant at the beginning and then See-lee-on towards the end). Those inconsistency annoyed me. But other than that I still enjoyed the story and it’s heart-tweaking and laugh out loud moments!

Laurie is sure love at first sight doesn't exist anywhere but the movies. But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there's a moment of pure magic...and then her bus drives away. Certain they're fated to find each other again, Laurie spends a year scanning every bus stop and cafe in London for him. But she doesn't find him, not when it matters anyway. Instead they "reunite" at a Christmas party, when her best friend, Sarah, giddily introduces her new boyfriend: the man from the bus.

This was adorable. A story of love, friendship, life and staying true to one's heart.

I loved the narrators and felt as though they did their characters pure justice. I loved the friendship between Laurie and Sarah - they felt like friends of mine by the end of the book after listening to how their lives played out. This was a story where you wanted ALL the characters to have a happy ending. This story made me feel things; like REALLY feel. The author was able stir up so much emotion to the point where I was like almost in tears at several points and I could feel my heart starting to race at the build up to points I knew were going to be difficult for the characters.

Definitely a great Christmas read but perfect for any time of year when you need reminding that life is too short to not love wholeheartedly.
