Publisher's Summary

When Melissa is made unfairly redundant from her job at an estate agents' office, she decides it's time for a change. Instead of working for other people, Melissa will go into business for herself: using her organisational skills to whip the lives of London's socially and romantically challenged men into shape. Then Melissa meets Jonathan, and suddenly she must decide if she can mix business with pleasure....

Needs a new storyteller

I read this book when it was first published amd loved the trilogy. The narrator for the Audible version is very grating. Poor Jonathon sounds like a wimp, Daddy sounds overdone and Gabby sounds horrendous. The sound quality is very poor, it's loud one moment and super quiet the next. I had a very difficult time finishing this book which is a shame because it really is a good story. I would recommend anyone interested in this story to go and purchase a hard copy.

Dissatisfied

Not quite the ending I dreamed about and the narration didn’t quite fit the main character

Nice story but the Narrator left much to be desired

The narrator drove me crazy. She sounds like she’s 50 not 27. She reads the character of Emory as if she’s a 4 year old vs an adult about to be married. She pronounces the “r” sound with a “w” sound when reading the part of Emory. Fortunately, Emory doesn’t have a huge part in the story.

So fun and cute!

This book is so flirty, fun and just puts you in a good mood. It's not slow and it's totally relatable to the average female.
The only gripe I have is that the Author sounds way to old to play this character, I feel bad saying that but, the book is about a women in her 20's so to hear and older women narrate this kinda struck a weird nerve.

Wonderful story shame about the narrator

This has been one of my favorite books for years. I was delighted when Audible released it. It's funny, lighthearted and has well rounded characters. The narrator Lara J. West isn't the best person to read it though as some of her accents, like Gabi's are painful. She also seems to have given Melissa's sister Emery a lisp. She does however do a good, plummy tone for Melissa. It might be my computer but I did have a problem with the story volume changing but overall being very quiet. Can't bring my self to send it back though as the story is such good, escapist Chick Lit!

Had its moments, but…

I liked a lot of the book, but it had three glaring issues that mostly ruined it for me.
- Melissa's dad. He was a two-dimensional tyran with absolutely NO redeeming qualities. He was mean just for the sake of being mean - no explanation ever made, no come-uppance ever received. He was so unpleasant to read about and all scenes involving him basically made me want to put down the book and not pick it up again. I have seldom wanted to hit a man thar much.
- Melissa's insecurity. She's awesome as Honey and a total pushover as anybody else.
- Melissa's way of handling Jonathan. I always get so frustrated when the main conflict of a book only occurs because of miscommunication. I don't know if it's lazy writing, but it's certainly annoying writing.

The narrator was generally good. Her normal voice was pleasant and easy to listen to, but some of the voices she put on for some of the minor characters got a bit grating.

All in all, not a bad book, but not one I would recommend either.

What a rubbish ending!

at risk of giving things away, for me there was a clear romantic option and she didn't choose it! I was expecting the book to continue and for the right man to win out but sadly not. Coupled with those dire accents, this left me really frustrated.

Wonderfully silly

I love Hester Browne’s style, it’s always exactly what I’m after for some holiday reading escapism! I’ve always enjoyed the styles of her other narrators but West managed to drag each word out. I suggest 1.25x speed to kick it back into “lively”.
