Brilliant story! except it wasn't a comedy.!
Narrator was great, loved the story , i was a roller coaster of emotions but sadly it was not a comedy as stated. I was really looking forward to the comedy as promised but enjoyed regardless with a very nice ending

Sweet and Funny Romantic Comedy
I enjoyed this plot from beginning to end. It was funny, light and true. I’m not a fan of the Bachelorette’s show or of any reality show as it is, but I did like this book very much. It was different from the TV show because it allowed an actual glimpse of what really goes on in the bachelorette’s life and heart; and of course this story has some setbacks and unexpected elements you wouldn’t have on the TV show.
Taycee is easy to like. She is an honest character but too content with her life. It’s easy to feel her stress and how the complexity of her situation affects her, but I was very proud of how she deals with everything. I think if I would’ve been in her situation, I wouldn’t have came out of it as well as she did. I did think she was a bit of a pushover though, especially allowing her best friend manipulate her that way, that’s a big frown upon Jessa too.
I did like Jessa too. As I already said, she was a bit manipulative, but her heart was in the right place. Plus she was fun to be around, so even if she made me angry at times, I would still like to have her as a friend.
Last but not least, Luke. He was slow to see what was in front of him the whole time, but in the end he did. He was the whole package, but he didn’t make me swoon. I did like him for Taycee though, he was a gentleman, sweet and funny; but what I liked the most about him was that he wasn’t perfect like Jake appeared to be. Who wants perfect? That’s too much pressure, but he was perfect within his flaws.
It took me a while to realize this story was actually being told from both, Taycee and Luke’s points of view, but I liked how their dynamics worked. We got more on the Taycee front, but just enough of Luke’s POV to understand why he acted the way he did and what his true intentions were.
Overall it was a great story, hilarious, enthralling, sweet and fluffy. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good romance. It was very hard for me to unplug me from this book.
To be honest my first impression of Jennifer Reilly’s narration was not good. I felt she was too calm and soft, like the kind of voice of a masseuse in a spa. Certainly not the kind of tone you’d expect for the narrator of a story; and it really ticked me off at first. After a while though, I don’t know if she actually got better or I just got used to it. Maybe I was too engrossed in the story, but it didn’t bother me anymore.
Her character voices are another story. She is actually very good at them. I think that’s part of the reason her spa tone didn’t get to me anymore. I liked how real she made Taycee and Jessa, and even if the bachelors’ voices were a bit alike, she also did a great job with them. Quite manly I have to admit. She even got Miles’ accent right. In brief, when it comes to voices she is quite talented, but on her narrator voice she needs to lighten up the tone a bit.

This book was super frustrating. The main character was a total push over, to the point the book was not believable. I kept waiting for her to stand up for herself. I kept thinking there will be a moment when she will inevitably snap! No moment ever came. Sure, she did voice a little frustration, however it wasn't anywhere near enough. The best friend was not at all likable. Audible labeled this book as a romantic comedy, however there was zero to little comedy. The romance was severely lacking and totally unbelievable. All in all I will say that it was well written grammatically speaking. That is the only good thing I can say as this was one of the most disappointing books I have ever read/listened to in my life, and I have read thousands.
