What’s not to love. That’s a little bit of Henri in all of us, and what an amazing lead male is Luca. Pippa delivers her usual nutty love stories and I’m here for it. Narrators nail it, as per usual, and Jason Clarke referring time himself is genius. Thank you for introducing me to more people that I wish I could be friends with.

Emotional roller coaster & then some!

HEA - check Rockstar romance - check Cute dog story - check Heartbroken MC - check Everything to make your favourite romance styles all come together and take you on an amazing ride. Just when you think everything is going to be okay, bam! Another bump in the road to happy days, but great storyline, amazing narrators and just enough angst to make you want more and more. Can’t recommend this book more, loved everything about it. Thank you for such a fun, sad, wonderful story.

Love, love, love this book. A very different storyline to tackle but so beautifully done. Genius casting of narrators - Andi brilliant as always, but Jacob donning an English accent, oh my! Loved this book, never wanted it to end and am having such a book hangover after. Thank you ladies for such a lovely story.

What a great story. Little bit different to the usual formula and that’s what makes it great. Loved the friendships amongst the characters and the chemistry between our two main characters. Feeling all happy & stuff since finishing this one, thank you Pippa for a great story.

It had such potential

I'm sorry to write this review. I really really wanted to like this book, and I kept listening to it hoping that I was wrong, but I wasn't. How excited was I to buy a book about an Aussie surfer, being that I'm an Aussie who lives in a surfing based State? How exciting that the guy wasn't some 20 something idiot, but an 30ish dude that had lots of potential. How awesome that the main girl was a sarcastic, funny, willing try anything heroine. All big ticks in my opinion. I was on holidays, and awaiting a great feel good book. First of all, two of the characters were Australian. We had an American narrator, and whilst she tried really hard to master our obnoxious twang, she failed, miserably. I tried really hard to ignore her butchering our accent, but I just couldn't get past it. I'm really sorry. And it was because I was interested in the story so much that I kept on keeping on to hear the story out. Unfortunately, it was another one of those "if these people just spoke to each other, none of this would have fallen apart" type scenarios. One huge over-reaction and bam, book ended, please buy next one. I'm really sorry to say this, but maybe if it had been dual narrated, maybe even had three narrators, I could have handled the predictable storyline better. I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn't get past those issues. Won't stop me from trying the author again though.

Perfection all round.

Great storyline, fabulous characters and spot on narrators. A story I wished would never end. Another favourite from a favourite author ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a really sweet, slow burning love story. I bought this book based on the blurb provided, and because I love Andi’s narration. Imagine my delight, and horror, to slowly find out that the story was set in my home town and the surrounding towns that I now live in. So excited to listen to this, reliving my summer night out in Palmwoods, the smells, the stars, the heat. My horror was listening to an American narrator of an Australian story. It kind of spoiled the story for me. I know not every listener will be an Aussie, but it just left me a little sad, and that’s why I wasn’t fully committed to a 5 star review for performance. Andi was awesome & voiced Adele’s wit & sarcasm so well, she just didn’t have the right heritage. I look forward to more of Kylie’s books, but I might read them instead of listening.

I really enjoyed Bro Code. Some of the story lines were a bit far sketchy (what did they actually make in the factory?) but the romance was good, and believable. The dual narration was the best part though, and great choice in voice actors, they were perfect as Barrett & Ava. I quite enjoyed this one 😊
