Publisher's Summary

True love is on the line in this charming, laugh-out-loud rom-com - created specifically for the audio format!

Paint your toes. Pick up the wrong coffee and bagel order. Drive from Brooklyn to Jersey in traffic so slow you want to tear your hair out. It’s amazing all the useless things I can accomplish while on hold for three hours with customer service. Three hours when I should be getting the Date-in-a-Box website ready to launch at the big business expo in a few days. Except my shiny new website is glitching, and my inner rage-monster is ready to scorch some earth...when he finally picks up. Not the robot voice I expected but a real live human named Cal. He’s surprisingly helpful and really knows his stuff, even if he’s a little awkward...in an adorable way.

And suddenly I’m flirting with him? And I think he’s flirting back.

And suddenly it’s been hours, and we’re still on the phone talking and ordering each other takeout while he troubleshoots my website.

And suddenly we’re exchanging numbers and sending texts and DMs every day, leaving voice mails (who even does that anymore?!).

And suddenly I’m wondering if it’s possible for two people to fall in love at first talk.

Because I’m falling...hard

Absolutely charming!

Intelligent, witty, laugh-out-loud funny, sweet and touching. I couldn’t stop listening. A true feel good story about loveable characters who were also believable. One of the best rom coms I’ve heard in a long time. The performances were stellar! Highly recommended!

A great audio experiience

A movie for the ears and mind! This was such a fun audio concept. The background effect, the choice of narrators, the plot, everything was perfect. Vera calls her website provider when it craches before a very important event. She connects with Kal, the customer service Rep, and keeps him on the line for 9+ hours. This starts a flurry of calls, txts and emails, some misunderstandings, developing feelings, a budding friendship, some flirting, and a few twists. It also deals with issues adults have with their parents. I loved the banter, Vera's quirky personality, Kal's kind heart and how great a love can be without seeing each other. Must listen to this one!

highly recommend!

I really enjoyed this book. I’ve been unable to read for the past month because I have eye issues but this audiobook made me feel like I was able to read again. It was perfectly directed and the narration and the dialogue kept me up into the wee hours trying to finish it. I’d find myself holding my face and squee-ing at the cute moments (of which there are a lot) and laughing out loud. The characters are real and hilarious and the situations they find themselves in are easy to relate to. Highly recommend this audiobook!

This was wonderful!

I was a little sceptical at first but boy did I change my tune! Story was great. Performances were great and kept me so emerged in the story. Great voice actors. Can’t wait to find another listen like this.

An absolute delight!

I enjoyed this SOO much. It had me smiling in the first few minutes and ended with me smiling!  I honestly didn't want it to end and wish it had a final epilogue just to get a bit more. It was a series of phone calls with fun, flirty banter between the characters and The narration added to it so much! These are both new narrators to me and they were excellent! I feel their voices suited the rolls perfectly and they had great chemistry! The book would not be the same without these narrators!  An absolute delight of a listen and I didn't want it to end! A feel good, happy book and I would listen to a series of books just like this! I know this will be one I will relisten to on a day when I need a happy pick me up! Very well done!

so creative at first

it's a nice book to read (actually listen). The thing is at first it starts great then it turns to teenagers kinda love story. I like the performance though.

Greatest Audible Preformance

I absolutely loved listening to this audible book.... for nearly all of the story. The performers were great! So easy to get caught up in the story! It was almost perfect!!!

My only problem with it was later on the story when all of a sudden there was a lot of the use of the “F” word. So Disappointing!!! And Totally unnecessary and distracted from the great Preformance. I would have given 5 stars with every category if it wasn’t for the language. I do hope Audible will be offering more books like this where the characters do their own voices. It’s like watching a movie in your own head. Awesome!! But trust me .... you don’t need to include the “ F” word. It totally is offensive to many people, and your story was great without it.

HIGHLY ENTERTAINING

This is my first review even though I have been listening to audiobooks over a year, mostly to still binge “read” while working and to ignore my coworkers theatrics. I loved it all! It was literally like listening to a favorite movie without looking at the screen. I’m sad that I reached the end. I would love to hear a sequel but fear it wouldn’t live up to the first book.

Bastone is definitely a new favorite author.

Cara Bastone’s authorial voice is absolutely captivating and she works within the romance genre conventions while bringing pretty unique spins on various tropes. I absolutely love the way she writes complex family dynamics and that shines in this book despite being in the background. And the romance itself between Vera and Cal? Magical. I screamed, I laughed out loud, I squealed more times than I can count. I can’t wait for more.

Also, the production value of this book is incredible. It sounds like you’re listening to a movie and I loved everything about it. Thank you, Audible, for the advanced listener copy! These opinions are entirely my own.
