Description

Cowritten by USA Today best-selling author Tara Sivec and award-winning narrator Andi Arndt, a hysterically funny, heartfelt romance - created specifically for the audio format!

Nothing good ever comes from drinking a box of wine alone. So when I decided to entertain my drunken self by setting up some hand-me-down podcasting equipment and reading the steamy parts from romance novels, I never thought anyone would actually listen. The fact that I admitted my huge crush on my sexy next door neighbor made the whole thing even more mortifying. But sometimes life surprises you, and that’s how my podcast, Heidi’s Discount Erotica, was born.

Now I, Heidi Larsen, a sweet former kindergarten teacher in Waconia, Minnesota, lead a scandalous double life reading erotic novels to the listening world. And with each episode, I find myself embracing my new alter ego more and more. Now I’m starting to feel more comfortable in my own skin and do things I never would have dreamed of - like kissing my neighbor.

Look out, Waconia, because Heidi’s on the loose! She’s in your ears, in your hearts, and down your pants...wait, that didn’t sound as good as it did in my head. Well, you get the picture, don’tcha know!

The most funny steamy story!

I laughed so much I thought I was gonna faint! Wow, this audiobook is quite the experience. Firstly it's narrated by Andi arnt which I love! Then the story is written with podcasts format that are very cool. Our sweet Heidi loses her job as a kindergarten teacher and starts on a journey of self discovery. She finds a job at Eden media which turns out being a place where erotic audiobooks are recorded. Heidi is very prudish at first. But slowly with her podcast and help from her friend Aubrey, an erotic writer, Heidi blooms, becomes more confidant and goes after her sexy neighbor Brent. It's a quirky woman, living in a small town with over bearing parents finding her voice. It was so much more than I ever expected it to be! Worth the read.

Funny, sexy, sweet

So so funny, I couldn’t stop laughing!! Like lol-Ing for real, my checks hurt just from grinning the entire time I was listening. Yes, Brent was a little too perfect but I don’t even care I had such a blast with this audiobook. I know I’ll listen to it again.

Different and Fun!

Right from the start, this book was funny, bright, and a refreshing change on story telling.
You will definitely laugh out loud, and maybe even hide your face because you can actually feel the awkwardness of situations. Enjoy!

😍 love this story

Definitely has some of Tara Sivec sprinkled in there.
Personally I love Tara and would read even a cereal box if she wrote it. I was excited to hear this new story co-written by Andi.
The two writers meshed well. Funny and cute all at the same time. Everyone should give this a go. It s a great story and I loved it

OMG LOVED 🥰 IT

Andi has been one of my favourite narrators for a long time now, but with this witty and humorous story she had cemented herself on top. Highly recommend listening to it without giving any of the plot away. It was amazing thank you to both authors for it. 15⭐️

Hella funny

This book made me at times laugh so hard. I cracked up. You have to love autocorrect when texting.

It was so funny how big of a naïve prude she was at the beginning. Well she opens her eyes about sex and romance. Hell so does her mom and dad. You will see.

Speaking of her mom and dad, what a busybody her mom is. I at time wanted to slap the mom. But she was kind of funny as she wasn’t nagging me but her.

She gets made at this man who listened to her podcasts and said the were personal. Then why did she put them on if she didn’t want people to listen.

She meets her forever man and throws him away because she jumps to all wrong conclusions.
Another HEA.

Excruciating

I am someone who can usually find something I love in everything I read or listen to. I’m not super picky and am always open to new things - but this was so bad I couldn’t even make it halfway. The voice actor did a good job but I just couldn’t listen to the stereotypical “Minnesota” accent they were doing. Save yourself the time and brain cells.

Highly entertaining and a BLAST to listen to!

Tara Sivec's humor and Andi Arndt's narration... you know when I heard these two were co-writing a book and Andi was narrating I had to check it out right away. I'm so glad I did. It was sweet, cute, sexy, and down right hilarious!

Heidi Larsen is a former kindergarten teacher and her town's sweetheart. After getting laid off from her job, she finds something new. An administrative assistant job in a studio. Sounds great, right? This is a studio that produces audiobooks. Audiobooks that are mostly erotica and/or romance. It's something that Heidi becomes uncomfortable with almost immediately. After her first day, she takes home some spare equipment and after a box of wine, records her first ever podcast. It is a hoot.

Heidi talks about her life, her inexperience, and most importantly, her crush on her next door neighbor, Brent. While working at this studio, she makes friends with some of her co-workers and starts to come out of her shell. She uses the podcast to help as well. 'Heidi's Discount Erotica' features Heidi narrating some books- some of the steamier scenes to get her more comfortable.

This book was a bit over the top, but I was okay with that. It was so much fun to listen to. I laughed out loud so many times and I cheered for Heidi as she started to come out of her shell. I loved watching her with Brent, seeing her take charge and be more comfortable in her own skin. Also, every scene with her parents was just hilarious. This was one of the funniest things I've read in some time. Andi Arndt does an amazing job narrating, as always, and I was impressed with her writing skills as well. She and Tara Sivec collaborated on this seamlessly.

If you're looking for a book that will make you smile, laugh out loud, and is a bit ridiculous in the best way possible, pick up Heidi's Guide to Four Letter Words. It was highly entertaining and a blast to listen to!

Funniest book ever

I adored listening to this book. I think something would have gotten lost reading the book. Andi's Minnesota accent was HILARIOUS!!! Her expression and pace was perfect. She completely captured Heidi's voice and mannerisms. I would listen to this book while running and had to stop sometimes because I would laugh so hard. I even passed this book on to my husband to listen to. It is that good. I kept looking for a book from Tara about Jamison and Aubrey and one doesn't seem to exist. This audiobook is absolute perfection!

So good, and so funny!

I was broke, out of credits, and looking for romantic comedy on my Audible Escapes package. This book popped up almost immediately. Hopefully this review sticks around after I return the borrowed copy. I haven't reviewed anything I've borrowed yet. I've listened to both author/s and the narrator before, and loved the writing style of Sivec and voice-acting of Arndt. The fact they collaborated on the writing was an instant "get this book now" from me. I have been laughing my butt off all day, picturing sweet, awkward Heidi , trying to say bad words and having to resort to rhyming them, to avoid sayimg them. Seriously. If you need to laugh at dorky people, this book will make you laugh as you squirm! Awesome!

Rated B for boring

Does not live up to a great premise. No heat or sizzle between the main characters, the parents and supporting cast were more interesting. Main character can’t even talk about sex or say dirty words (even drunk) after weeks of ‘coaching’ so I’m not sure how she’d ever have great sex. Was so boring and pointless I couldn’t finish. If you are a fan of super g rated romance with some dirty words that are sooo uncomfortably included this one’s for you!

Too Sweet

Ugh, I found myself rolling my eyes more than once on this one. The main character is unbelievably naive and not in an adorable way. The narrator did a good job with what she had.

Dnf:ed this one

I couldn't force myself to finish this one. Heidi was just too naive and too fumbling and immature to feel a real adult person. With a college education.

The main reason for me to stop listen was something else though: the mother. I can't stand an overbearing parent who has not heard of boundaries and none of the other caracters seem to think anything of it. It's not funny, to me it's just abusive.

Uff da! Get ready to laugh!

Overall 4 stars
Performance 5 stars
Story 3.5-4 stars

Heidi's Guide to Four Letter Words was such a hilarious and fun romcom! There isn't any heavy lifting or angst/drama. There are just laugh out loud moments as Heidi discovers herself and her sexuality. The story and romance was playful and sweet (though sometimes Heidi was a little too naive and clumsy). The secondary characters added lots of laughs as well, and I especially loved Heidi's parents. Their less than ideal meet cute with Brent gave me a stomach cramp because I was laughing so hard! Heidi's Guide to Four Letter Words felt almost like a story within a story since it was an audiobook discussing audiobooks, narrators, and podcasts. I loved all of the little Minnesota details and mannerisms too. Even though I'm not sure how accurate they are since I'm from California, they were a fun treat. I really enjoyed Andi Arndt's narration and Minnesota accent. Her comedic timing was awesome and she played every character perfectly. This is a great audiobook if you're in the mood to laugh!

Quirkily hilarious

Where do I begin? With the book or the audible? I have had the pleasure of reading and listening to this hilarious book. Both ways work so well for this story!

Sivec, per usual, did a wonderful job at bringing out quirky characters and giving them an animated bumpy romance. A romance with the right amount of angsty lusting, everyday mishaps, and characters that will melt your heart.

The narration of this book is superb! I laughed just as hard as I did when I read. In some cases, I laughed even harder. It's funny how some things are only funny when you read them and some are only funny when you listen to them. Andi did a wonderful job with acting out this story. 

Overall, this book is hilariously written and told. No matter what format you choose for this story, you can't go wrong with either one of them.

Needs something.

I loved the narration but I found the story a bit boring, taking forever for something to happen.
