Publisher's Summary

Ride along on this endearing road-trip rom-com from Audie Award nominee Cara Bastone - scripted exclusively for audio!

I have exactly 5 hours and 10 minutes to get from Boston to New York City or the professional opportunity of a lifetime disappears. My only travel option? The second to last seat on a discount bus. Across from the bathroom. Wearing last night’s clothes (don’t ask). All worth it if I can make it in time.

My nerves almost get the best of me, but then there he is, sitting down in the seat next to me. Tall. Friendly smile. Bright indigo streak in his brown hair. The perfect distraction. Turns out he’s on his way to reconnect with an old flame. The one who got away. We can both make it on time - just barely - if the traffic keeps flowing.

Playing road-trip games, avoiding calls from his mother, and effortless conversation keeps us from clockwatching...until the bus breaks down. And my seatmate turns into my copilot as we wrangle a ride in a car three decades old. And hit all the traffic. And oh, Lord, the detours. And somehow I end up careening cross-town on the handlebars of a Citi Bike carrying a box of kittens. (Yeah, don’t ask.)

He’s my hero every step of the way...and I might be falling for him. But what happens when we reach our final destination? Could my seatmate really be my soul mate?

Surprisingly exciting & captivating

I really enjoyed listening to this sweet and wonderful story about Sam and Gwen. They meet on the bus and spend the whole day talking and flirting to know each other while their ride turns into a little adventure.
All the narrators gave a fantastic performance with engaging sound effects which makes it an enjoyable play.
This book really almost had it all and it become the favourite book of this series.

I’m in happy tears!

Hey Cara, I’ve kinda binged on your writing for the last 3 days. Thank heavens for the little mercies called audiobooks! If you’re reading this, I just hope you never stop writing. Please don’t.

What a delight!

I am new to audiobooks but what a start!! Let me start by saying that I've been binge-listening to her audiobooks for the last 3 nights. I started with "Call Me Maybe" - Loved Loved it! Couldn't wait so started the next one right away - "Sweet Talk" and even though it wasn't as good as the first, it was still pretty damn great! And then came "Seatmate" - and I am at a loss for words. The book was charming, fast paced, hilarious and one that I didn't want to end. The narration was perfect. Amanda and Zachary were perfect in their respective roles and I cannot wait to listen to more such audiobooks. Every expression and dialogue was delivered just how one would imagine. The ending was perfect and what every person would hope for. The kind of story we all want to be true! Can't wait to see what Cara Bastone has in store for us next.
