Desperately seeking

What was one of the most memorable moments of Desperately Seeking Sixty-Nine?

The audiobook t was unique and funny! It's a story about one woman's life and her afterlife! About going back to a time that meant the most to you! In Bonnie's case it meant going back,it meant remembering her life with Peter,her husband . Lots of LOL moments..:)

Hilariously witty and fun!

This is my first audio book and I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not only was I able to listen to it while doing menial tasks around the house, but it kept me wildly entertained. Bonnie lands herself in the "in-between" after a wild night of sex with her husband and begins an all new journey. From worrying about her appearance to the fear of her children finding her and her husband's sex toys, the hilarity ensues. Grab this book now for a VERY interesting hour of laughs. You won't regret it!

Great Quick Read

Any additional comments?

Desperately Seeking 69 by J.D. Prettier was a great and quick read. I loved reading Peter and Bonnie's story. This was a great story of Purgatory, the place you go when waiting to go to heaven or hell. Only they call it 'The Green Rom'. Bonnie meets her best friend there after her unexpected death. Bonnie goes on a journey to reconnect with Peter, her one true love. She recalls the way they met and their life together. This was a great quick read. I love the authors work and can't wait to read more by her. This is a must read.

I never wanted it to end

I volunteered to review this book without any promises about the review (the rating or the posting). When I was first sent in the direction of this book, I was told it was a “laugh out loud” comedy. The saying “each to his own” applies in this case. However don’t get the wrong idea. Just because I didn’t LOL over the book doesn’t even come close to saying I didn’t enjoy it. It was a fun and humorous read and I will definitely be looking for more in this series. The following is my personal opinion and thoughts about many aspects of this book and its author. COVER: ✯✯✯✯✯ - This is one of my favorite covers ever. I’m so tired of 1/2 naked couples. The bold and bright colors, the font...hell, everything about it worked with the book. The TV, the bright green, the # 69….there is a reason for all of them. PLOT: ✯✯✯✯✯ - This book had a general direction the characters followed to get to the final result, but plot wouldn’t be the correct word to use. This was a humorous and feel good book that wasn’t supposed to have any overly dramatic situations or big climax at the end. Even though everything tied together in the end, it definitely leaves the story open to more books in the series. WRITING STYLE: ✯✯✯✯✯ - I’ve read books by JD in her alternate persona, Jennifer Theriot. Her writing style doesn’t differ between the personas. I love her “to the point” descriptions. There’s just enough to give you a visual effect without being overly descriptive. Also, she has a way of giving you background history on the characters while staying in the moment. I mean...information that normally would be mundane and boring is interesting and informative in developing the characters. CHARACTERS: ✯✯✯✯✯ - There are 3 main characters in this short story/novella. Each character is brought to life more by their words than their actions or any background information. Bonnie didn’t really conform to the “establishment” but she really has been allowed to spread her wings after her death….absolutely love her and can’t believe she ever birthed a kid like Dharma. Peter is Bonnie’s husband. As lovable and delightful as he is, I wouldn’t be able to be with someone like him. Cudos, Bonnie. Peter is a 70 year old hippy who refused to ever grow up until he was given the ultimatum by Bonnie. I love the character, but I’m so glad he doesn’t exist in my world. I’d kill him. Dee….omg, what a firecracker. She is the best friend of all best friends. She loud and proud. She pushes and pulls when the time requires it and she is definitely someone I want in my life. OVERALL FLOW: ✯✯✯✯✯ - With the story being so light and cute without any real angst, the flow was very easy-going. I was shocked when I hit the end of the book. I was left unsatisfied because I never wanted it to end. Bonnie dies after a night of kink with her husband of 47 years. Her best friend, Dee, who died 8 years earlier is there to welcome her to the “Green Room”. It’s like a holding room till the powers that be decide whether you go to heaven or hell. Bonnie reflects on her time with Peter...the time they met at Woodstock, the birth of the children, their marriage and life up to Bonnie’s death. During all this Dee shows Bonnie how to work with all the miracles the Green Room offers. Personally, I hope the Green Room really exists….I want the body sculpting, the Nip Amp and I definitely want to see the Get Some of Me. Under no circumstances was I approached by the author to read or review this book. I offered without any agreement or promise for any compensation. I am voluntarily giving my opinion about this book. My only affiliation with the author is that I am a fan and want to support by reading and posting this review of my own free will.

Purgatory was never more fun!!

What other book might you compare Desperately Seeking Sixty-Nine to and why?

I have never read a book like this before. So funny!

What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

I always enjoy Hollie Jackson's performances. She delivers comedy so well.

Any additional comments?

This was a fun short story of what it's like in the afterlife. Purgatory or "The Green Room" as it's called was an idea so unique and different and quite refreshing than my usual romance listens. It had its sad moments, but for the most part I was laughing so hard. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more by J.D. Frettier. Well done!
