Publisher's Summary

A hilarious, opposites attract/enemies to lovers romance, The Fine Line Between Love and Hate will have you laughing and swooning at the same time.   

She's not a quiet librarian.  

My landlord is infuriating. 

He's uptight and rigid, right down to those dress shirts that do nothing to hide the muscle underneath. Sure, I never read the tenant's agreement. I have now. In fact, I've memorized it and I'm going to use it to my advantage while staying within the bounds of my contract. Is it my fault that those little decorative touches drive Charlie nuts? And who can resist purchasing a few vulgar gnomes to enhance the landscape?  

He's uptight and rigid.  

Note to self: Do not allow my mother to choose a tenant for my house ever again.  

She's the opposite of the quiet librarian I'm expecting. My tenant is outspoken, vibrant, and seems to get off on pushing all my buttons.  

It drives me nuts, but there's something there. Something that sparks a fire in me and when we're not butting heads those flames ignite.  

Whatever is happening couldn't possibly work. We're too different. I'm too set in my ways. 

Evie pushes me out of my comfort zone and she doesn't seem willing to give up, even though we hate each other more often than not.

Adorably laugh-out-loud funny!

This was a completely adorable story! Who would have ever thought these two could mix and mingle and not come out dead or dismembered! Evie and Charlie are so incredibly different! Evie was amazing and I could seriously see her and I being besties! I like her outlook on life. Charlie is... umm... uptight? Wound so tight he might just explode is really about right! His uptight ways made me laugh and roll my eyes... I just can't imagine. I'm surprised he doesn't have ulcers the amount he stresses.

Anyway, the narrator, Heather Firth was fantastic! She was upbeat and fun... just what this book calls for. There were some sections in the story that were so funny that you could feel Miss Firth's smiles! Enjoyed her narration a lot.

Librarian VS Teacher Against Garden Gnomes

The Fine Line Between Love and Hate is a frolicsome, opposites attract/enemies to lovers romance. This is a fashionable, innovative novel that is charming and so much fun to listen to. It will have you laughing out loud and felling giddy. I absolutely adored Evie and her peppy personality. I loved Charles and his uptight attitude. These two opposites attract and bring out the best in each other. I loved the comical banter between Evie and Charles. Supporting character's were campy and brought extra frenzy. I loved how each chapter had a title and told who was talking. With a perfect epilogue to wrap up this witty narrative.
Narrator Heather Firth did excellent voice changes for each character. The narration showcases a smooth, light tone, with a perfect pace. I absolutely loved listening to this audiobook and plan on doing a relisten. Looking forward to listening to more audiobooks from this narrator and author. I highly recommend listening to this audiobook as it brings happiness.

Fun Fun

Up tight teacher and feisty librarian go head to head in this fun romance. Loved the naughty gnomes. I could absolutely picture them in the yards. Enjoyed these two finding their balance in each other. And OMG the reading nook sounded Devine.

Sweet and cute romance

This was an easy listen. Great narration and a good story line. I liked that the male character wasn’t the embodiment of perfection but would have liked if the author delved a bit deeper into his ‘quirks’. It felt like the issue was being skirted a little. Loved and laughed about the garden gnomes!

Love and hate romcom

Really enjoyed this first book by a new author, it’s a quirky hate of ones landlord until Evie gets one look at him, only the first sight doesn’t reveal their relationship with one another and then the fun begins. Evie sounds like a girlfriend anyone who loves shenanigans would love. It’s a cute, and crazy love story of not giving up on love even with opposites in the mix. Charles is stuck in his ways, will Evie make him realize he needs to change, listen to find out what all the gnome is about, lol.

I’m going to check if I have any other audiobooks by Heather Firth, really loved her narration of both POVs, she shows amazing talent in expressing both views. Loved this audiobook, time well spent♥️

This is a funny little rom-com of how opposites attract! The quirky yet adorable heroine has to come to terms with her faults while forgiving the hero of his faults. On the other hand, the hero with his OCD tendencies has to learn to overcome his strict issues of insecurity and accommodate the differences of the heroine. The narration should be in dual POV and left something to be desired.

Who knew garden gnomes r romantic?

Charlie has asked his mom to find a tenant for his rental property and is pleased when she’s leased it to the new town librarian. That is, until he drives by his property and sees flowers planted in between his perfectly planted shrubs!! The horror!! So begins the battle of wills...Evie is quirky and fun loving and Charlie is just shy of OCD. Expect witty banter and lots of vulgar garden gnomes. Can these two compromise and find love? Great HEA!

A GOOD LISTEN

Both the author Ashley Erin and Narrator Heather Firth are new to me and and I have no idea why that is the case.

I really enjoyed this story and performance, with quite a few laugh out loud moments to be sure peppered throughout the book..

How could two people who are so totally different become involved.? That is the question when Librarian Evie and teacher (and Evie’s landlord) Charlie meet and despite themselves become attracted.

I absolutely loved the character of Evie and would love such a friend in my life. Charlie on the other hand I wanted to smack across the back of the head a few times and tell him to grow up. He was so rigid in his views and opinions that at times I wanted to strangle him. However he did redeem himself in the end; I particularly enjoyed his inter actions with his 2 best friends', who despite his quirks have always been there to support him.

Evie’s outlook on life is to enjoy herself without too many attachments forming. She grew up in the foster care system and some of her memories truly broke my heart. Heather Firth did a great job with her narration and you could feel and hear the pain that Evie was in.

I loved that Going Haywire was set in the small town and that you get the experience of living in a small town through the eyes of the characters.

Although my first book from Ashley Erin and Heather Firth, it most certainly will not be my last.

Fun book!! Looking forward to more by Ashley Erin

This was a very interesting book and i love the way Author Ashley Erin brought these characters together. Its a fun romance and definitely a great book to bring with you to the beach. I would have liked a fewer inner monologues, and more verbal conversations, but this could be a style of the Authors. I personally felt that there was something more to Charlie than his strict regiment, and I wanted a bit more background on Evie, but overall, they are well rounded characters and fun to watch them throughout the book. i can see lots of potential from the Author and curious to see what else she's written.

The narration was okay, but I would've liked a little more distinct voices between the main characters. And this is a personal preference, but i do prefer a Reader voice, and then when talking, that is when the Male voice or female voice happens. The inner monologues took on the same 'voice' as the main characters so i found it a bit distracting and it pulled away from the story at times.
