The two leads in My Best Friends Ex - Emma Marks and Tucker Jamieson - will forever be one of my all time favourite couples and their story is one I will never get sick of. Hearing it in audio made me fall in love with them all over again and I know I’ll be doing a re-read or re-listen very soon!!

I really enjoyed the audio and despite it being dual narration, it’s definitely one I’d love to listen to again and again. Rudy Sanda was the ideal Tucker and I look forward to hearing him as a racer when I get around to listening to Twisted Twosome. His version of Emma was also really pleasant to listen to and I appreciated that as well. Amelie Griffin was a fabulous Emma and while her male voices weren’t outstanding, they weren’t irritating so I consider that a massive win.

I’d definitely recommend this as an audiobook and I don’t need to rave about the actual story because my love for it and these characters is pretty evident!!!

My favourite douchebag of all

Listening to Sara Ney’s How to Date a Douchebag: The Failing Hours was a “reread” for me as I read the ebook last year when I first fell in love with Zeke and Violet. Zeke will forever be my favourite douchebag as he epitomises the perfect hero that I love to root for - the guy who you start out loving to hate and then by the end of the book you just love them. And Violet is so real and so perfectly imperfect and I love how she brings out the best in Zeke 💕

As far as audiobooks go, this is a fairly good one. I had the same issue with the female narrator - Muffy Newton - as I did when I listened to The Studying Hours; when she does the male voices, it’s a bit too “try hard” and is pretty irritating to listen to. I do get used to it but she’s not my preferred narrator when it comes to this dual style. Josh Goodman I’m the other hand is the PERFECT Zeke and I love listening to him 😍😍 One other thing, both the narrators needed to take a breath and just pause when it came to some sections of the book - eg. when the scene changed or moved on - as I found that I’d wondered what was going on and why the topic being discussed had changed or the conversation had ceased and then I realised it was because there was a break in the scene and the narrators just needed to acknowledge that with a pause before they continued on.

Overall this is an absolutely fabulous story and a great audiobook that I’d definitely recommend.

I first read Carmen Jenner’s book Revelry - the first book in her rockstar Taint series - last year and listening to the audio was a “reread” for me. And I have to say I loved the storyline just as much as I did the first time around. Cooper is the lead singer of Taint and has had a rough time after his ex and mother of his child has left him, and he’s not coping well at all. Enter Ali, an employee of Taint’s record company who happens to walk in and captivate Coop. So much so that he demands she become his PA and join Taint on their world tour. What follows is a realistic portrayal of rock stars on tours - drugs, sex, groupies, fan girls, more sex, alcohol, concerts, threesomes, drunken antics, paparazzi and, yes, more sex 😉 It’s one of the most honest telling of rockstar life in a romance novel I have read - it doesn’t gloss over the shocking behind-the-scenes antics and male rockstar life appealing, because it definitely isn’t!!

As for the audio version of this book, I have to say the female narrator did not provide a great listening experience and her version of the male voices was grating. However, I enjoyed the male narrator’s voice (reminded me a lot of an Aussie soapie actor!) and that’s what kept me listening.

Overall, the story is INCREDIBLE and the audio narration is ok. I definitely plan on doing an actual reread of this book ASAP as Carmen has recently announced the next book in the series and I can’t wait!!

I really enjoyed listening to Sara Ney’s first book from her How to Date a Douchebag series. Oz and James’ story was a great read and this time around it was definitely an enjoyable listen!

This was my first dual narration audiobook (as opposed to duet narration) and it took a little getting used to. I actually preferred Josh Goodman’s take on James in comparison to the “manly voice” that Muffy Newton puts on for Oz. And it was that which detracted from the story a bit for me.

In saying that, the storyline itself was a strong as ever in audio!! And I did thoroughly enjoy listening to the book. I’m looking forward to hearing the rest of the series.

Those brilliant audio moments

Hearing Hayden and Vi’s story in audio was absolutely perfect. Will Watt and Charlotte Cole do an incredible job of capturing the true essence of these characters and the difficult but beautiful journey they go through to find each other.

I had tears in my eyes through so many scenes and the emotion that you feel when listening to the audio of That One Moment is almost greater than that I felt when reading the book.... this is all because of the talented Will and Charlotte. Everything Vi and Hayden felt is expressed perfectly in audio and I absolutely cannot fault this fabulous recording.

No Challenge to enjoy this book in audio

I fell in love with Camden and Indie when I first read Amy Daws’ Challenge a few months back. But to hear them in audio made me love them just that bit more.

Will Watt and Charlotte Cole give flawless performances and make listening to the story enjoyable and fun and emotional. And Martin Foster hits the mark with his portrayal of Dr Pritchard who gave me the heebie-jeebies in the book, but in audio had me truly creeped out - which means Martin succeeded in his role.

This is a fabulous story, a phenomenal audio book and EVERYONE should get on board and take the CHALLENGE 😉😂😂

Keeper by Amy Daws is already my top read of 2017 and this audio version is now my absolute favourite telling of the story.

Will Watt's and Charlotte Cole's performances as Booker & Poppy (and all the supporting characters) are phenomenal and they manage to capture the essence of these two characters completely.

This best friends to lovers romance is even more emotional, more hilarious and more of just everything in audio format. I had tears in my eyes from both laughter and sadness while listening to this gorgeous tale. Plus getting updates from my favourite Harris family members is yet another highlight.

Finally, I must commend Charlotte on her perfect sing-song Poppy moments - they were absolutely spot on - and Will for his splendid and flawless Irish and Scottish accents - they were just brilliant #WillWattForSiri

I'm a total newbie to audio books but this will not be my last. Will and Charlotte bring Amy Daws' fabulous book Endurance to life with their dual narration. I laughed, I cried and I fell in love with Tanner and Belle all over again ❤️❤️

This is absolutely fabulous and I would recommend it to readers who already know Amy and the Harris brothers or London Lovers series but also to total newbies to audio books and Amy. You will not be disappointed!!

Can't wait to hear the rest of the Harris brothers series narrated by Will and Charlotte (as well as That One Moment)!! Five mankini wearing Harris brother stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👍🏻
