Publisher's Summary

What happens when a misanthrope meets the one person she doesn't want to be without?

Reese Walker doesn't like people. What she likes is silence and being left alone. The thing she loves most about recording audiobooks is that she doesn't have to leave her Chicago apartment to do it. And she hasn't for nearly a year. But with an unavoidable bill going to collections that puts her sister's treatment at risk, she has no choice but to take a job that pushes her out of her comfort zone.

After a disastrous blow to her career, Arden Abbott needs a comeback. Step one: a successful book launch, including an audiobook. She doesn't trust anyone else to oversee every aspect of the project. Arden knows she's ready to resume the life she had before her dreams fell apart, all she has to do is prove it to everyone around her.

When Reese and Arden meet, sparks fly and then, they combust. Will Reese crack under the constant pressure from Arden? Can she possibly read a sex scene with the woman who wrote it interrupting to correct her pronunciation of words she is saying 100% correctly? Or can they step outside their comfort zones long enough to meet in the middle?

Contains mature themes.

Adding to my favorites

I was almost put off by the book description on this one…a reclusive woman who hasn’t left her apartment in a year? Glad I took a chance, though, as this wasn’t a heavy story about someone struggling with a phobia, just an introvert who needs quiet time to recharge after socializing, which I can totally relate to.

Both MCs were easy to like. The story was a good mix of romance and friendship, humor, a dash of drama, and enough steam to keep things lively. The only complaint I could think of is that there’s no point where the MCs actually say ILY, and being a fan of romance, that’s one of my favorite parts of any romance book. You can definitely tell once they’re all in, but I did rewind a time or two thinking I had missed them saying the words.

Narration by Abby Craden was awesome, like always. I would definitely say this one is worth a credit, that I would try this author again in the future, and that I will listen to this book again, which makes it a 5 star for me.

Almost….

The most well written book of this genre I’ve listened to so far (and I’ve listened to upwards of 40 -
sad, but true 🥺. Intended humor was actually humorous, likable characters, original premise The sex was hot without being ridiculously acrobatic. And…the best description of what it’s like to “come out” as sober I’ve ever come across (thank you💕)
The reason for only 4 stars is due to the ending…didn’t feel fully fleshed out. But I will be on the lookout for more from this writer.
Ms. Craden, as always, is a pro. I hope this team works together again.

Great.

I loved Must Love Silence. I loved the emphasis on people being able to say they want to go home and shut their door on the world. Great plot. Abby Craden does an excellent job with the narration.

So perfect…

I need to give the world of Twitter a huge thank you for bringing Lucy Bexley to my attention. I loved this book so much. A witty recluse, her equally witty sister, her childhood friend turned colleague, an author, and a lovely but intrusive neighbor all mingle together to make a perfect story. Oh and there is some VERY well written bedroom activity. The audiobook is narrated by the legendary Abby Craden and is pure perfection.

I'm gonna need to have a torrid love affair with the one and only Abby Craden.
