Publisher's Summary

My name is Lennox Brooks, and I'll admit I've made a lot of mistakes. I don't take the big risks, I cover my insecurities with snark, I've shown my crazy a few more times than I would've liked, and I've been trying and failing at love pretty much since I first grew tits. Weirdos, mama's boys, the over-coiffed, and underwhelming, I've been out with them all, just read my blog. I've got horror stories that would curl your toes and singe your nose hairs, but none of them compare to the toad who started it all: Ellis Walker.  

He was the boy next door, the charming, infuriatingly gorgeous one who broke my heart and disappeared without a trace. Now, he's back and determined to throw my life into chaos, dredging up painful memories just when things were getting good.  

But the thing is there are always two sides to every story. I've spent the better part of my life hating him for everything he put me through, but without that resentment clouding my judgment, how will I ever resist him?  

Love is complicated, appearances are deceiving, and sometimes, you have to kiss a whole lot of frogs before finding your prince.

Cute book, hilarious but frustrating

I really found the beginning of the book to be quite hilarious- as someone who has had to navigate the NYC dating scene it hit home a bit and I laughed a lot at the blog entries. Poor Len had the worst luck ever. However, I have to say that i started to get really frustrated at Len as the book progressed.

Ellis, the man, hurt Len when they were younger and Len held on to her anger and distrust. Obviously, the pains of the past don’t just go away but really, i thought her anger dragged a bit too long. Even once Len and Ellis talked things out and Len gave what I thought was a rather good reason for what he did, Len exhibited behaviors that were extremely childish, given how Ellis was acting. He was so sweet and really funny as he tried to win her over, even in the midst of her distrust and within the love triangle. Even after Ellis realized that she was being selfish and annoying, she STILL didn’t change her behaviors. There’s no growth in her character until the very very end, which just ended up frustrating me.

In terms of the narrator, she was good. She differentiated well between the characters so it was an easy listen. She played the supporting cast well and I really liked that facet of the story.

I received this book from Audiobook Obsession for an honest review. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Cute Frienemies to Lovers romance

This is one of my favorite sub-genres and this book is a great addition to my rom-com collection. It has the perfect mix of witty banter, funny inner monologues, and drama. Samantha Harris did an amazing job with this story and I cannot wait to read more.

The narration was really good. I enjoyed Heather's multiple voices and cannot wait to hear what other ones she has.

Even after she received an explanation of why.. but it all turned out ok.. and overall this was a really good listen! Heather does a great job bringing this book too life and I loved the opportunity to listen and review this one! 👍

Such a fun story! Great acting!

I read most of this through the audio book, and then finished reading the last few chapters (I was driving when I started!)

Both the author and narrator were new to me.

They both left me wanting to read/listen to more!

Samantha Harris has a quick witted, fun, way of writing a story. Great character development, great arc, and an overall great idea.

My only minor flip, was the blog posts. It took me several chapters to reconcile that it wasn’t running concurrently with the story itself. This didn’t take away from the story, but did leave me mildly kerfuffled for a bit.

Heather Firth did an absolutely amazing job with this book. Each character was easily discernible, consistent, and full of personality. I throughly enjoyed listening to her read this! I can’t wait to experience more of her narrations.

Two sides to every story

Samantha Harris reminds us that every story has two sides and that holding on to a grudge without knowing the other persons side can lead to unnecessary hurt. She also eloquently demonstrates that dating his hard but finding humor in ones misadventures can go along way. As Lennox navigates the world of dating and blogs about having to date a whole lotta frogs in search of one prince - her portrayal of the online dating scene makes me grateful I've found my prince but brings back my college dating days. With humor and self deprecation, the story progresses with snip bits of her childhood growing up with the boy next door. My only qualm with the story is the perpetuation that when a boy is mean to a girl, it's because he likes her. In my opinion, this is the wrong message for young girls to be told but here's not the place for that.

Heather Firth does an excellent job narrating and has a believable male voice which isn't always the case with narrators.

I received a free audible code for this book and am providing my honest review voluntarily.

Absolutely stellar narration

I very much enjoyed Heather Firth’s narration of Whole Lotta Frogs by Samatha Harris. In fact, the narration was my favorite part and I might even say, that she saved the book for me. I had previously read the ebook and the blog posts made it feel choppy and broken up. However, in audio, the blog posts became my favorite part and I could feel the humor and the humility in them that I think I missed when I first read it. I still find Ellis to be annoying, but I absolutely loved Lennox and her no non-sense attitude. This book is as much as much about Lennox’s personal growth as it is about romance (an enemy to lovers romance at that) and I loved that one wasn’t left out at the expense of the other, which is often the case with romance books. It’s an enjoyable read with plenty of life lessons and enough bad dates stories to make you laugh out loud every chapter.

You will laugh, maybe cry a little and roll your eyes more times than you can count, so it is definitely worth the listen. Plus, the narration is amazing and well worth the credit in its own right.

Insert clever title here

I couldn’t think of a clever title that would do justice to this book. It was great. So cute and incredibly fun. Ellis is an amazing character. I found him a little dodgy at first, the whole love triangle thing, but in retrospect I would do absolutely anything to be with the love of my life so I found it hard to judge him as the story went on. Sawyer is just perfect. Almost to perfect to be believed, but I loved him anyway. Gus and Desi’s story in the background added a nice bit of charm. The blog posts and Len’s mother had me laughing out loud. The only downside to this story was Lennox herself. Ugh! She’s childish and frustrating. I wanted to shake her silly more than once. Yet, she was also relatable. I think a lot of women have been insecure and had those completely irrational moments or reactions to trying situations. The feelings I had at the end of the book were mixed. It was a good ending, it really was, but I was left feeling that her redemption wasn’t complete. Maybe a bit rushed. The story itself was well written, engaging and smooth. I wish somethings had been given more time and more in depth explanations but hopefully we’ll get to visit these characters again. I look forward to reading more books by Samantha Harris.
Heather Firth did an amazing job with narration and I will gladly listen to her again.
