Thank you to Laurel Schroeder for providing me with a free audiobook in return for an honest review.
Tap Left follows Lola and Adrian Daire.
Lola was the girlfriend of Adrian’s half-brother, until he died in a boating accident. Years later, Adrian still checks in with Lola and makes a proposal that he’ll teach her what guys want when she finds herself single and wanting to settle down. While they go on ‘fake dates’ and he teaches her how to be attractive, Lola signs on to the Tap Left app, a dating app that Daire does not approve of.
The storyline was okay. I like the enemies to lovers genres. It seemed to flow quite well in most parts.
I liked gradually hearing about Ryan, Daire’s brother and Lola’s ex-boyfriend. When we first hear about him, it is obvious that Lola misses him and did love him. However, as memories come through, we gradually find out that Ryan wasn’t such a great guy and I really liked that gradual leak of information.
The narrators in this audiobook were brilliant. I loved the voice of Daire, Aaron Shedlock.
I tend to quite like alpha male stories where the main male is a little arrogant, but Adrian Daire was downright vile, borderline abusive. I’ve already established a few months ago that I’m not into dom and sub stories but that part didn’t bother me. It was more the public ridicule that got to me quite a bit.
There were parts where I’d get quite bored and wish for the story to just finish, it seemed to go on much longer than it needed to.
I did hope that ‘That Guy’ who Lola was talking to on the top left app would appear as Mr perfect and take her away from Daire, but I did guess his story and wasn’t overly keen on it.
It didn’t make it obvious what the story of the boat accident was about. I maybe would have liked a little more of a story into it as it was such a big event in both of their lives.

Any additional comments?
this was such a great story so easy to listen to I had to stop a few times just to sleep but if I could would have listened to the whole book in one sitting.
I think sweet and sinful are the perfect words to sum up this book. Although A Zavarelli is known for dark, this book is not dark. It’s angsty and lovely and emotional and heated. I truly enjoyed it.
Aaron Shedlock made for a perfect Dare. So incredibly confident and cocky, with this whole emotional and sweet side that was limited to his internal dialogue that Aaron made reality.
Tracy Marks was brilliant, as she always is for A Zavarelli characters. It’s almost as though they are written for her inflection and tone. Although I enjoy Tracy in all that she does, Zavarelli books are especially a favorite of mine.

This story was just okay for me. As expected, there’s a lot of steamy sex but, the story and female lead leave something to be desired. There were numerous eye-roll moments and situations that are a real stretch of the imagination. I can’t explain without giving spoilers so just listen and decide for yourself - you may find you love it and I’m too critical. Either way, you will enjoy it because the narration is superb. As always, Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks give outstanding performances. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.
