Publisher's Summary

In an energetic debut novel about personal and professional chaos, author Addie Woolridge introduces a multicultural cast whose exploits are redefining the modern rom-com.

Killing it at work? Check. Gorgeous boyfriend? Check. Ambitions derailed by an insecure boss? Sigh - check.

Things were going a little too well for Dylan Delacroix. After upstaging her boss on a big account, she gets dispatched to the last place she wants to be: her hometown, Seattle. There, she must use her superstar corporate-consulting skills to curb the worst impulses of an impossibly eccentric tech CEO - if she doesn’t, she’s fired.

The fun doesn’t stop there: Dylan must also negotiate a ceasefire in the endless war between her bohemian parents and the straitlaced neighbors. Adding to the chaos is a wilting relationship with her boyfriend and a blossoming attraction to the neighbors’ smoking-hot son.

Suddenly Dylan has a million checklists, each a mile long. As personal and professional pressures mount, she finds it harder and harder to stay on track. Having always relied on her ability to manage the world around her, Dylan’s going to need a new plan. She may be down, but she’s definitely not out.

Narration detracted from story

The narration wasn't necessarily bad, exactly, and I'm sure the reader does good work in other stories, but there were Seattle-specific references that were said in a way that wasn't quite right. (well, and one non Seattle one: Statler's buddy is not named Wardolf). besides that, I wished there was a second narrator with a deeper voice, because there were enough different male characters that "raspy" wasn't an adequately-defining trait and I don't think every man in greater Seattle has a store throat all the time.

Perfect

This book will grip at your heart strings. It doesn’t just tell a love story it has you rooting for every character. Couldn’t put it down, can’t wait to see what she has to offer next.

IRKSOME!!!

I bought this book on the strength of the narrator, and that's the saving grace. This is my first time with this author, and it was an irksome story. 9hrs of this girl being a push over, and a ding bat consultant. This story line worked my nerves. The one love scene was so vanilla!!! I'm grown give me some spice. My need for to finish what I start is the only reason I completed the book. I found myself yelling at main character to get a back bone. I was so glad to hear the closing outro "this is Audible"

Dont wast your money.

How do you go from being a problem solving confident person who saved the day at the beginning of the day. To a panicky dimwitted person who cant take care of business. The best thing about this book is the narrator.
