Publisher's Summary

Waverly Bryson is a successful businesswoman in her late 20s who almost has it all: a dream job in sports PR, two best friends, and a bar where everybody knows her name. What she doesn’t have is a ring on her finger. And after being ditched at the altar, she’s in no hurry to get one. Besides, plenty of other issues keep her busy, including her wayward father, a new rival at work, and an ever-nagging fear that her life is not turning out as she thought it would...or should.
To stay sane, Waverly makes a habit of jotting down “Honey Notes”, self-deprecating bitsof single-girl humor that she hopes to one day develop into a line of greeting cards: "Can’t face the dating scene after a bad breakup? Honey, hit the bar, and hit it hard. Beer goggles are the lonely girl’s Cupid."
As Waverly stumbles back into the dating scene (no stalkers or jean shorts, please), her personal and professional lives threaten to collide. Perfect on Paper reminds listeners that everyone has had a bad date (or 12), and that everyone needs a best friend to tell them, “Honey, you are not alone.”

Enjoyable

Would you consider the audio edition of Perfect on Paper to be better than the print version?

didn't read the print, but really enjoyed the audio version


Who was your favorite character and why?

Waverly, she always got herself into a situation and how she got out of it or what she did as a result of it made me laugh out loud a few times. Her honey do notes were an additional source of entertainment.


Any additional comments?

this was a very fun book and halfway through listening to it i had to go out and get the rest of the series. it is a very lighthearted romantic comedy that had very likeable characters and some characters that we have all encountered in our lives and prejudged just to find out they weren't really what we had made them out to be. if you are looking for a quick read that causes you to have some laugh out loud moments all tied up into a romance, then this is the book for you.

Even as a guy I enjoyed these books. Fun read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

In fact my girlfriend and I have gifted this series to several of her friends.


What did you like best about this story?

A window into a world I never suspected existed. I had to stop the audio even couple of minutes for my girlfriend to explain things to me I had never heard of but apparently are part of a language every girl knows. But the humanity and getting yourself into trouble and embarrasing circumstances is universal. Sort of a Brigit Jones sort of book. If you liked that you might like this even more.


What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nice pleasant voice. Helps you dive into the book.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I would say so, though my girlfriend and I listened to it in the car so over quite a few sittings.


Any additional comments?

Try the book, I think that you will like it and want to listen to all three.
