Publisher's Summary

True love is on the line in this charming, laugh-out-loud rom-com - created specifically for the audio format!

Paint your toes. Pick up the wrong coffee and bagel order. Drive from Brooklyn to Jersey in traffic so slow you want to tear your hair out. It’s amazing all the useless things I can accomplish while on hold for three hours with customer service. Three hours when I should be getting the Date-in-a-Box website ready to launch at the big business expo in a few days. Except my shiny new website is glitching, and my inner rage-monster is ready to scorch some earth...when he finally picks up. Not the robot voice I expected but a real live human named Kal. He’s surprisingly helpful and really knows his stuff, even if he’s a little awkward...in an adorable way. 

And suddenly I’m flirting with him? And I think he’s flirting back.
And suddenly it’s been hours, and we’re still on the phone talking and ordering each other takeout while he troubleshoots my website.
And suddenly we’re exchanging numbers and sending texts and DMs every day, leaving voice mails (who even does that anymore?!).
And suddenly I’m wondering if it’s possible for two people to fall in love at first talk. 

Because I’m falling...hard

Loved it!!!

The Narration was on point, and the story was superb. if you are a hopeless romantic (like me) you should definitely read it...

Very engaging!

I am not the guy who usually listens to romantic books. But after listening to the sample, I thought why not let’s give it a shot. From the very beginning the story kept me engaged. The performance of the characters was just spot on and it took me just one day to finish the entire book since start! Lovely, relatable and pure fun. You will laugh, smile and have the typical aww moments while listening. Cheers. Keep it coming.

loved it to the core! the financed the story in 3 stages, but it's very easy to listen without any recap. this is what I would call a romantic novel instead of the Lauren brakely types..!! I'm going to listen to other books of Cara Bastone now for sure!!!

Immersive experience, loved it, sweet, simple

Loved the immersive audio experience, the narrators did a great job, especially the male voice was so good, and the story is good, simple YA kind, like a rom com chickflic kind of story, if you are looking for something light and sweet, go for it!

Greatest Audible Preformance

I absolutely loved listening to this audible book.... for nearly all of the story. The performers were great! So easy to get caught up in the story! It was almost perfect!!!

My only problem with it was later on the story when all of a sudden there was a lot of the use of the “F” word. So Disappointing!!! And Totally unnecessary and distracted from the great Preformance. I would have given 5 stars with every category if it wasn’t for the language. I do hope Audible will be offering more books like this where the characters do their own voices. It’s like watching a movie in your own head. Awesome!! But trust me .... you don’t need to include the “ F” word. It totally is offensive to many people, and your story was great without it.

HIGHLY ENTERTAINING

This is my first review even though I have been listening to audiobooks over a year, mostly to still binge “read” while working and to ignore my coworkers theatrics. I loved it all! It was literally like listening to a favorite movie without looking at the screen. I’m sad that I reached the end. I would love to hear a sequel but fear it wouldn’t live up to the first book.

Bastone is definitely a new favorite author.

Cara Bastone’s authorial voice is absolutely captivating and she works within the romance genre conventions while bringing pretty unique spins on various tropes. I absolutely love the way she writes complex family dynamics and that shines in this book despite being in the background. And the romance itself between Vera and Cal? Magical. I screamed, I laughed out loud, I squealed more times than I can count. I can’t wait for more.

Also, the production value of this book is incredible. It sounds like you’re listening to a movie and I loved everything about it. Thank you, Audible, for the advanced listener copy! These opinions are entirely my own.

A Sweet Romance

This is a 3D audio story and I really enjoy listening to them. Hopefully audible will do more.
They really do bring the story to life.
Cal and Vera meet through a customer call centre when Vera rings up to make a complaint about her website. They spend 8 hours together on the telephone ☎️ 😲.
This is a fun listen that will keep you listening all the way to the end. Vera is fun and Cal is thoughtful and sweet.
I definitely recommend this to all romance readers.

I was blown away by this audiobook! This performance brings audiobooks to a whole new level!

If you enjoy RomCom and would like to listen to a story, this is it! Seriously if you don’t have Audible, but like RomCom, try out Audible just so that you can listen to this story.

The narration with sound effects is just brilliant. I wanted to listen to this story in one go! I smiled A LOT and laughed out loud several times. Simply brilliant! Can’t wait to listen to more books in this series.

The perfect mood uplifter.

This audible book was so funny. At times I laughed out loud. Okay the story is slightly predictable, but so is the perfect Hot Chocolate.

The performance is excellent. Both actors really do the story justice. I will listen again (and probably again) and classify as a feel-good listen when I've had a bad day.

Did This in a Day,

AND I WANNA DO IT AGAIN.

It has been so long since I’ve enjoyed a book like this one and I couldn’t stop listening, in any spare moment. I even snuck an AirPod during a quiet moment at work.

I love the premise and it’s so entertaining! I genuinely laughed- cackled at some of the jokes in this. Such a great listen and I couldn’t recommend this enough for some light and loving fun.

I just want to chase this feeling.

P.S. The performance was incredible, insanely immersive and the reading was so perfect.
