Description

The New York Times best-selling “romance It Girls” (Kirkus) bring you a hilarious, sexy romance about love perpetually unrequited (and denied), in the vein of their Roomies and Beautiful Bastard.

Foul-mouthed, quirky, sharp-as-a-whip Hazel never thought she would win the heart of her gorgeous college TA, Josh. And, in fact, she didn’t. But what a difference 10 years can make. Well...10 years, and a lot of legwork.

Love the story

I loved the story, loved the female performance but the males voice was a little annoying when he portrayed Hazels voice. Otherwise loved everything about this book.

Disappointing.

The storyline is generally what you'd expect from this genre. Predictable, but a fairly easy to follow read, almost something you could listen to in the background. However, the biggest problem that ultimately led to me putting the book down is the male narrator's projection of the female voice. I simply could not get past it. Very irritating.

Good story, bad narrator.

This is a really cute story. Unfortunately, I have to agree with other reviewers that it was very difficult to get through the parts read by the male narrator, as his voice for female characters was grating. My skin crawled every time he used it and I never really got used to it. Too bad, but I still liked the story. I also really enjoyed the female narrator.

Enjoyable book

The only thing I didn’t like was the voice of Josh. Especially when he spoke like a woman.

Another great book from this duo!

I literally was snort laughing at some parts! It had a great story about friendship and how it became something more. Both characters are fantastic and made me want even more of them!!

Not what I've come to expect from Christina Lauren

I always look forward to new Christina Lauren books because they never disappoint...until this one. It's possible I would have liked it better if I had read it instead of listened, because Hazel was such a different character than the typical female leads. Lauren has always written about independent, but flawed and real females, but Hazel was too over the top for me. To me, her eccentricities and quirkiness bordered on obnoxious, and I just couldn't relate. It didn't help that the male narrator's "Hazel voice" was horrendous. I just cringed whenever he had to speak as her character and made me like Hazel even less because she sounded like a pre-pubescent spaz, rather than a free-spirited and unique 27 year old. I will say, I think the female narrator did a fabulous job, but I could not reconcile the drastic difference between how the narrators portrayed Hazel with their voices.
It was a sweet story, but in the end I wasn't really invested in either character and didn't feel any real build-up between them to really care, even though the story was built around their growing friendship. As much as I had wanted to love it, I just couldn't get into this one.

Love love female narrator not so excited by the male narrator.

Jayme Mattler is an awesome narrator. First time I’ve heard her, but she is able to make the character seem quirky but smart. He make narrator made the the character Hazel sound like a teenager with no sense. It really threw me off. The story as always from these authors is as always good. The humor and build up to the relationship is perfect. Could’ve done with out the little twist at the end that I won’t ruin.

Didn’t hate it.... but also didn’t love it.

This book was not bad. I want to say that right off. I’m a huge fan of Christina Lauren books.

There was certainly a great amount of their true to form humor and the beginnings of wonderful main characters. But, throughout the book, I felt like there was a “distance” from those characters. Usually their characters jump off the page and by the end of the book I know them. But after listening to this book I don’t have a clear mental image of any of the characters.

The male reader, his female voice grated on me. It distracted from the story for me. I don’t usually have to concentrate too hard to keep myself in the story, but his voice caused my mind to wander while I was listening so I had to go back and listen to several parts over and over.

Also, without giving too much away, I found the ending abrupt. Almost as though they ran out of things to write or they didn’t want it to sound too similar to any of their other book endings. I don’t know, it want just odd for me. Left me feel wanting for more but not in a good way. Sort of like I totally missed listening to a few chapters, like there should have been more between the last chapter and the epilogue. Unfulfilling.

I see many great reviews for this book and I’m happy so many others enjoyed the book. I really wish I could have enjoyed it as much.

I still love Christina Lauren and will continue to buy their books. As I said, I didn’t hate it but I also didn’t love it. Which makes me a little sad.

The journey to their HEA is everything

Josh and Hazel! Oh how I loved this friends to lovers book! It was so good. The author did a great job fully immersing me into the story with so much detail. And kept me so interested in the story I barely felt the chapters pass. It ended well and tied up all loose ends but I’ll miss these two characters. Well done.
I’d heard about it on a YouTube blog – otherwise, it wouldn’t have been on my radar and I’m not sure I would have noticed it. Before purchasing, I was on the fence with the reviews I’d read but I went for it anyway. So glad I did.
Hazel is quirky and eccentric. As such, she has a tough time finding someone to see her as more than the party girl. They expect her to calm down over time but her personality is what it is. Fun! That doesn’t mean she does have feeling and doesn’t get sad when people tell her to stop being embarrassing when she feels mood to stand and dance to a song when no one else is.
Josh has a Type A personality. Everything has a place and should be orderly. Beige is more than likely this hot man’s favorite color. He’s quiet, kind, caring, and a big softie for his parents and little sister.
Hazel decide in college that he’s the perfect blue print of for all men and goes about her life. Ten years later – then meet again and she then decides they will be best friends. And they are. Really! There aren’t tons of flirtatious moments for majority of the book. These two are fun and funny. The kind of funny that makes you want to be a part of their crew. Hazel drags Josh on adventures. Josh brings Hazel a calm and focus she’s never been able to find before.
Until of course, a realization crosses. Knowing that bit of information can’t possibly ruin this book. You should still read it! What great romance doesn’t have a HEA? But the journey to the HEA is everything! Read it.

Also – I didn’t mind either narrator. I think their acting skills were spot on. Yes, I like that the male narrator too. He sounded the part of a Type A personality - average - and it worked. He didn’t sound like the men that are gracing every single audio book right now (don't get me wrong, I like them too) but this was something a little different and it worked.

The male narrator was just terrible

The story was sweet. Hazel is a little immature, but likable. The male narrator was just awful. His voice was not very masculine and his rendition of Hazel’s voice was terrible.

Terrible male voice

It was hard to listen to the male voice if Josh, whoever did the reading was terrible. He sounded like an 80 year old man. When he tried to read the female voice of other characters it was cringe worthy!

Loved it

I laughed from the beginning all the way through to the end. Hazel was awesome, funny, and quirky. The dynamic of her and Josh's relationship was great. The two personalities are polar opposites. They met in college, she was always attracted to him, and always saying or doing something odd, or funny when in his presence, 10 years later she finds out that Josh is the brother of her best friend. Just her telling the story of how she met Josh before his character even started his narration was hilarious and then the chance re-encounter with him and the laughs continued. These two deserved the happy ending they got in this book. Definitely a must read again type of book. As far as narration this was my first time with both narrators, the male narration took some getting used too but he eventually grew on me.

I’m in love with Josh and Hazel

OMG!!! This is my first Christina Lauren book ever, but it won’t be the last. I loved, loved, loved it. It is hilarious. And so freaking sweet! I loved Josh and could picture him so clearly in my mind. And Hazel! OMG, Hazel! She’s so refreshing, and sweet, and ridiculous, and adorable, and completely lovable. They couldn’t have been more imperfectly perfect for each other.

I loved the story, the characters, the pace, how their friendship develops and grows. I love everything about this book. It is definitely one of the best books I have read this year, and I will probably read it over and over and over again. It is magnificent!

I loved the narration. The audiobook is awesome. The only thing I didn’t love was the male narrator doing Hazel’s voice, but I got over it. The story is amazing, and Jayme Mattler does a fantastic job as Hazel. I love her voice, it was perfect.

Awful Korean Pronunciation

Fun story (love it!) but terrible narration.

Gaaah: making sure the narrator knows how to pronounce Korean words like “mother” and “father” is basic!!!

Aside from that, the male narrator is fine when narrating the male parts but his female vocal cadence is awful.
