This is the story of the trials and tribulations associated with emerging from heartbreak. Kenadie is a highly intelligent, successful woman who was humiliated at the altar. With her sense of self worth shattered and her confidence at an all time low, she has packed her heart away and opted to live life in the non-moving lane. She uses her heartache and experience to help others find love.
In comes Jason who cleverly tosses her plans, and more importantly her heart, into a twist. Yes, there is a happily ever after and the plot isn't all that unique, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating. I love the way this story has been written. Some of it is delightfully colloquial, as though Kenadie is having a private conversation with the reader. I love the funny characters that support Jason and Kenadie's story. Jason is yummy and Kenadie is so easy to relate to. The story has been rather rather delightfully constructed.
Nancy Peterson has done a tremendous job narrating this story. She brings the story and the various characters wonderfully to life.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
Would you listen to His Personal Relationship Manager again? Why?
This was a very emotional story and I am not sure if I would read it more than once. If I did I think I would leave a long gap before I did so.
What did you like best about this story?
I did like the story very much but I found it difficult to understand how the characters could be so dumb and clueless about each others feelings. Xander was so irritating and annoying,.Every time he opened his mouth I wanted to throttle him. I realise that was the point so I guess the author did well in getting that across lol. Jason, for a clever man was just as stupid in how he handled relationships. Plus don't get me started on Kenadie she was the worst of the lot. Kenadie and Zander both had the embarrassing families from hell. really funny as long as they were not yours! I loved it, the interaction between everybody was so funny. Even when things were meant to be really sad you had to laugh in a sick sort of way. I think most of us have been through situations like that.
What about Nancy Peterson’s performance did you like?
Nancy Peterson read very well. Her "Xander" was marvelous, every time I heard him appear I really did want to do something violent to him. believe me, I do not care how handsome he is I would not touch that idiot with a barge pole! Whoever he ends up with better be deaf dumb and blind.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There were many scenes that made me laugh and those were with the family. Kenedie made me cry because she was so broken. She should have healed long ago and had wasted so many years. Biu then again she had succeeded work wise which was good. It was just emotionally that she had shut down. But that was really bad enough.
Any additional comments?
All in all I would say this is a really good book and I enjoyed it. The parts that irritated me I think the author meant them to irritate. I hope I am not wrong about that. If I am then it is me who is the idiot lol.
This is a fun Rom-com that has likable characters and witty dialogue. The plot is refreshingly different and quite entertaining despite some predictable moments and a shortsighted, yet likable, main character. Very enjoyable and a winner for those who like quirky characters and funny scenes. 😊
Nancy Peterson narrates wonderfully. She never disappoints me.
Note: I would give this a 17+ rating. There is some swearing and sexual situations that weren't detailed.
I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

I LOVE everything I have ever read by Peel, and this was no exception! I generally do not listen to audiobooks since I can read it myself in much less time. However, I enjoyed being able to listen to Kenadie and Jason's story while making dinner and cleaning. The narration took me a little while to get used to, but the more I listened, the more I liked it! Great job, Jennifer and Nancy!
