Publisher's Summary

Ava Jones has settled for a life that she's not sure she wants anymore, but won't admit it. Her best friend Erica Davidson talks her into taking a break on the Isle of Wight. Her days on the island are spent thinking things through and arguing with Morgan, whom she hates on principle. Is it so wrong for her to want a life that follows the script of an honest-to-god romance film?

Just Like in the Movies

If you could sum up Just Like in the Movies in three words, what would they be?

Short story with a lot of story line going on. Loved Ava. Even as undecided as she was, she still knew what she wanted out of life
Ava has been content but knowing things were missing from her life and her relationship. A vacation changes all that and gives some kind of contentment.

Cute Short Story

This is a short sweet romance with an interesting story line and characters.

The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life. Her accent was easy to understand and she kept a good pace.

Ava and Erica go to spend 10 days at the beach. Ava meets Morgan and they get off on the wrong foot.

Modern romance, short and sweet

If you enjoy short and sweet modern romances, this may be the book for you. Ava and Morgan's story is pretty succinct, lacking in unnecessarily frilly details (which is great) but with enough meat to make a fun story. In a single sentence, this little nugget of a book is about a holiday meet that lacks the usual instant burning attraction that goes wonderfully right, rather than terribly wrong.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Quite entertaining romp.

Where does Just Like in the Movies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I haven't listened to many audiobooks thus far, and even fewer novellas. But this was quite entertaining.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I wouldn't change the story itself, but the character of Erica irritated me.

What about Leanne Yau’s performance did you like?

The narrator is very fluid and has mastered many characters, and is able to articulate and emote various sentiments as called for in the text. Very well done.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
