Publisher's Summary

Can a long shot bring love to a couple of lonely hearts?

Joni Fisher is facing economic ruin. The once successful advice column she runs with her mother is on the brink of cancellation, and it’ll take a miracle to turn things around. Joni’s last-ditch effort to save her job and preserve her mother’s legacy is The Love Project, a web series she’s developing to bring the Help Me Henrietta franchise alive for a new generation. All she needs is a willing victim...er, star.

Hope Alvarez dreams of falling in love, but she’s always suspected she’s different. Physical attraction is a foreign language to her. After her only prospect for a meaningful relationship falls through, Hope has to face the fact that she’s completely hopeless when it comes to love. Can her favorite advice columnist, Henrietta, save her from a lonely future?

As the series gets underway, fans swoon for the lovable yet unlucky Hope, and they’re not the only ones. Joni is smitten, too. But she’s been down that road before, vowing never again to fall for a straight woman who will keep her forever in the friend zone. Except, what if she’s been reading the situation all wrong? Helping Hope make sense of her identity might save Joni’s job, but will it also bring her love?

Best-selling lesbian fiction authors T.B. Markinson and Miranda MacLeod have written a touching slow-burn romance about love striking when least expected.

Slow Starter

Strong finish. Narrator was awesome as always. the characters were well written. There were plenty of laugh out loud moments. Like the Yankees and the silicone. bottom line it was nice and light.

Definitely a slow burn!

Writing was well done, humorous. There were some negative comments about misogynistic themes, however, I take issue with that! The two MC's had very different ways of expressing romantic attraction and love toward others. The authors wrote this into the story very clearly! Well done!

Bummer

Lori Prince was the only thing I liked about this story.

Joni is kind of an asshole. I couldn’t stand her.

Hope has potential, and she didn’t come across very well like she was confused about her sexuality as much as she was confused about social interactions of any kind.

I was disappointed.

Not best for different sexual orientations

Mysogynistic. While I applaud the truly bold move to address varied sexual orientations, I felt the delivery left much pain in the wake of conflict. Why does a female lead have to address women with such sexual in your face statements - even after being told the other woman was addressing her unchartered sexual orientation? Why does a lead woman have to act like a man to boast her sexual prowess and "conquests"? I tried to complete the book. I really did. I just couldn't continue to listen to the constant badgering and demeaning of the woman trying to understand how to navigate her hits to self esteem. I wanted to see how the woman in such distress came out in the end. Maybe someone can tell me how it ends. Good idea - so poorly detrimental to the subject.

Different in a good way!

I really liked this book. Lori Prince is the perfect narrator for this, too. I am fast becoming a fan of the TB Markinson/Miranda MacLeod duo. I really didn’t want this one to end and am hopeful for a sequel...? Definitely worth the credit!!

The co-writing is perfect!

The Love Project is so current based on podcasts, dating apps and streaming. “Hopeless” Hope is a beautiful character who cannot read cues or emotions and has been very unsuccessful in the dating arena, although she comes from a very loving, accepting environment. Joni is the daughter of a very successful advice columnist mother and well respected father who is the chairman of the psychology department at his university. She has never felt remotely good enough for her father, even when she’s been helping her mother write the column for the past five years.

When the newspaper business begins to downshift, Joni has a brilliant idea for a web series called “The Love Project” and Hope becomes her first target. Joni immediately develops feelings for the lovely Hope, but remember, Hope doesn’t get it. The more dates Joni sets up for Hope, the more jealous she becomes. These dates are actually hilarious and both authors really seem to have fun with the characters. I certainly enjoyed this book when I read it last year, but narrator Lori Prince brings it to an even more enjoyable level. I heartily recommend this Audible version!
