Would you consider the audio edition of Egomaniac to be better than the print version?
The performance by Joe Arden and Andi Arndt was superb! They really brought the characters to life in realistic and convincing matter.
If you’ve listened to books by Vi Keeland before, how does this one compare?
This was my first Vi Keeland book. As a guy trying to expand my literary horizons, I was somewhat disappointed by the storyline of the book. I felt that the character development was extremely lopsided. The male character (Drew Jagger) is complex, multifaceted, and exhibits a wide emotional range. By contrast, the female character (Emerie Rose) is consistently portrayed as a damsel in distress (with a doctorate degree). A good 75 percent of the storyline focuses on Emerie Rose being rescued or protected in some way. By the first quarter of the book, I could predict her misfortunes and even her responses. The author seemed to give all the emotional depth to Drew Jagger, which would be fine if the book was solely about him and not a romance novel.
What about Joe Arden and Andi Arndt ’s performance did you like?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed a lot more than I expected. Some aspects of the book took a more serious tone. These moments were mostly related to Drew Jagger's past.

I love coming across a "new to me" author who not only impresses me with a WONDERFUL, well written story, but can hook me with just one story and Vi Keeland did just that! WOW! This was a fun, feel good romance, with a solid plot, and ticked off everything I love in a good audio! I had a BLAST listening too this one! Kudos Vi!
Drew Jagger has become one of my favorite characters. He was complex with all the typical attributes sexy, hot, confident, and arrogant; however, he was also caring, vulnerable and has a teasing personality. All his one-liners were hilarious! I liked his actions were justified by his past and everything he sees and does on a daily basis. You really understood his motives.
Poor Emerie Rose had me cracking up with all her dumb luck! She was so sweet, had a heart of gold and only focused on bringing out the best of everyone; however, she could be a little naïve at times. These two were polar opposites but had a magnetic attraction that pulled them together. He's the divorce lawyer, and she's the marriage counselor. They were a hilarious match!
Their relationship evolved naturally; it wasn't forced, rushed or instant. Not only was their sexual relationship developed but also their friendship. These two went from being strangers to friends then lovers. Vi did an amazing job building their relationship, off the charts chemistry and sexual tension between the characters.The sex scenes were HOT & STEAMY!!!
The writing blew me away! The story had a great flow, the dialogue was clever, witty and had a realistic feel, and each scene had the right amount of description. The reader is not bogged down with too many details.
Andi Arndt and Joe Arden's performance was outstanding! They did an amazing job with all the dialogue between the characters.
Solid five star story and performance! Well worth a credit!

This light flirty read was just what I needed, it hit the spot beautifully. I completely fell in love with Drew Jagger (sexy attorney at law) as he assisted Beautiful, naive, small town girl Emerie Rose as she navigated her way around the New York hustle and bustle. After being scammed by a would be realtor, Drew well and truly comes to her rescue in an uncharacteristic move as her offers her some of his office space at no cost. Drew is a divorce attorney, Emerie is a marriage counsel. They are both at opposite enters of the spectrum. They argue non stop, as such, their passion and chemistry are off the charts. Both learning and living with each other's inner most thoughts and fears, and both learning to love and trust in each other. Told in dual POV with some amazing supporting characters along with some emotional and touching scenes this book was a full five star read that I completely got lost in. Fun, sexy, easy read.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes definitely. It was great from the beginning and had substance and a good story line. It got your attention straight away and kept it. The narration was brilliant too.
What other book might you compare Egomaniac to, and why?
I can't think of one that it is similar too really as its a refreshingly different
Which character – as performed by Joe Arden and Andi Arndt – was your favourite?
Drew and Emery were both awesome but they did the other voices great too
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
This is the best book I have read in a while and look forward to more from this author. I have to say that i am always tempted by books read by Andi Arndt as she is my favorite female narrator,

I'm not sure if it is because it was an audio book because I pay closet attention to the story or if it is just THAT good. Either way I loved this story and everything about the relationships within the pages. H & h were fantastic together and the relationship between father and son just made me tear up. The performance of the narrators impeccable. All in all close to perfect for me.

This is not as good as Vi Keelands other books, but certainly more humour which i really enjoyed.
