Publisher's Summary

Can an always-tardy garlic mogul and a punctual Silicon Valley librarian fall in love?
The world needs garlic, and somebody's got to sell that garlic. Cedric Johnson is that man. But even though he's got just about everything he can wish for, Cedric is still missing one thing in his life: someone special. Fate may be on his side, but he encounters a few distractions along the way - like almost being killed by a UPS truck. Oh, and a little case of blackmail.
Ellie Fontaine is a walking Wikipedia with clear professional goals, but when it comes to landing Mr. Right, she doesn't know jack squat. She gives online dating a shot but ends up with an unappetizing buffet of unibrows and losers. What's a girl to do?
After Ellie saves Cedric's life, serendipity takes over as they continue to run into each other. Their connection grows stronger with each meeting, even though he embodies her number-one pet peeve: He's always late. But even if they can get past their issues and misunderstandings, Ellie's ex-boyfriend, an unscrupulous cop, will do anything to keep them apart.
Five Minutes Late is a hilarious, fast-paced romantic comedy full of snappy dialogue and fun, quirky characters, guaranteed to warm your heart.

Sweet and Lovely

If you could sum up Five Minutes Late in three words, what would they be?

Fate Always Wins

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like both Ellie Fontaine and Cedric Johnson but I REALLY loved her Grandpa he is SO SO SO awesome!

What about Michael Ferraiuolo’s performance did you like?

His performance is very good and I liked him very much, it was the first book I've listened to of him.

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

No, I couldn't all in one even if I wanted to, but I surely did it in two :)

Very Funny!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book by Rich Amooi and narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo. Cedric Johnson has almost everything he needs except for that special someone. When fate takes over and he is almost killed by a UPS truck he believes that fate will bring that special someone to him. Ellie Fontaine is a walking Wikipedia with her goals planned out, the only thing she has no idea about is finding that special someone. When she saves Cedric’s life and then fate brings them together again, they start to feel a special connection.

The narrator Michael Ferraiuolo, did a great job, and was very easy to listen too. This is the first time I have listened to this narrator, and I am looking forward to listening to more books by him. He did a great job with the different characters and their voices.

If you are looking for a great FUNNY romantic comedy book with great characters, then you need to get this book! I am looking forwarded to listening to the next book in series.
