Smart & Funny

This has been a hit and miss series for me, but I enjoyed this story very much. Marie & Matt are very likable characters, both are smart and funny and their relationship is a slow burn. There are check ins with other characters from the previous books which is always a nice touch. I would have enjoyed a little more from Matt’s POV, but overall a decent read.

Stand alone but should read others first

Most stand alone books in series briefly involve or reference previous characters. This book spends 1/2 time on the old characters and there are a lot of them. I felt it detracted from the story because there were so many players who I didn't know and didn't have investment in. The dialogue was prolonged in this way. Wanted more time with the main characters. Should read the other books first

superb!

Marie & Matt's heartfelt story, the news from the rest of the gang, the slow growth & burn, the permanent smile on my face, the anticipation, the truth, the sweetness, the sexiness, the cleverness of this book, the choice of Joy Nash as a narrator... Thank you, Mrs. Reid <3

BRILLIANT! <br />

I absolutely LOVE this book and will be relisting to it many more times
I learnt so much about technology. It was told in a very humorous and fun way. The narrator truly brought the characters to life! I highly recommend you take this journey!

Creative, funny and emotionally angsty at times story

This series is entertaining and this story fits in. Marie and Matt fit like the proverbial Ying Yang mentioned in the story. Marie is such a strong person in so many ways but like many singles lost in the dating world, finding someone that's remotely honest about themselves online is impossible. Including this time when she's been perfectly matched! But no, it's actually a study and the guy doesn't even remotely look like the picture on the profile! She despises this person whoever he is... oh, um, he's Fiona and Greg's neighbor and they really like him. What? This is a great setup for the story and the two go on to learn more about each other slowly and fall for each without letting the other know because Marie friend zoned Matt! She really didn't mean too but it seemed the wisest move. The repartee is crisp and intelligent. I loved the AI information cited at the beginning of each chapter. Each chapter improved as the chapters flew by. Switching to the male narrator/perspective (or Joy has a seriously make sound voice) for the last couple chapters was a terrific strategy that worked wonderfully and I loved.
I definitely recommend this story/book.

An fun, enjoyable story sprinkled with strong characters with quirks.

A solid, well written story with an engaging plot, interesting and quirky characters whose issues do not end up being wearisome, repetitive or irritating. Rather it’s an engaging dance towards a happy ending. The narration is good. Overall a fun read - good enough to reread so that makes it well worth the credit.

Love Matt!

Great character! Not sure why this is labelled a standalone...you have to have listened to or read all the other books prior to to understand this one. Would definitely listen again. And, Marie...she really is that one friend who could almost be overlooked in all the other books...very endearing couple.

Love it!

Started the book realizing it was out of order...had to go back to Happily Ever Ninja. Penny you truly had me engrossed in this book. I felt for Marie. Dating is hard but her friendship with Matt (turned into dating) was perfect. I truly believe being friends first before any turning sexual really makes a better transition. You don’t have to pretend with a friend. You have no expectations but once you feel that romantic sexual attraction that can be awkward and unacquainted. You really have to go into a relationship with out any expectations. Marie and Matt tried and failed several times but they always talked it through! Love this book

The Best One Yet

This is by far my favorite installment in Penny Reid's Knitting in the City Series. It breaks from her usual formula and focuses more on the main couple and has less of the friend circle, which I liked, although the extremely detailed recall descriptions of everyone in the knitting group were a bit annoying since I listened to all of the books in a row and, therefore, had no trouble remembering their characters. The computer puns also got bit old toward the end, but ultimately they added to the male lead's character. Also the main sex scene was definitely the best in the series so far.

In this book the author managed to minimize her series-wide tendency to use the same less-than-everyday lexicon for all of her heroines, though the problem was still evident. It's like they all studied for the vocab portion of the SAT together. And I think she needs to find new ways of describing facial movements. You could start a Penny Reid drinking game and do a shot every time a character's mouth hitched/pulled/tugged to the side or a character's eyebrows jumped/bounced or a character's jaw ticked, but then you'd get alcohol poisoning before you finished the first book in the series. And can someone please explain to me what it means for someone's jaw to "tick"? Because it sounds like something you need to see a doctor about.

All in all, this was the best book yet. I'm looking forward to Marriage of Inconvenience, the last book in the series, though I am peeved that it is not included in the Romance Package, and I therefore have to spend a credit on it.

favorite book on the series!!!!!

best book so far! some books in this series are a bit less interesting. this one is so far the most entertaining and most interesting! no trumped up drama and no truly frustrating moments that made me want to skip ahead.

Joy's narration is superb! her accents and tones were very good and made it easy to know exactly who was speaking.
