I LOVED this book. I laughed out loud within seconds of listening to the promo so you know it's going to be funny. It's rare I pick up a romance novel and find myself enjoying the story just as much as the romance. Disclaimer though: I'm Australian, so I might have found some of the jokes much funnier than Americans might. Ordering a flat white for shits and giggles had me in stitches!
The characters are beautifully built and flawed but loveable. My only reason for dropping a star is I felt the ending needed an epilogue.. The book ending felt sudden and caught me by surprise. But then perhaps it's because I was enjoying it so much and wasn't ready to leave their world. I'm not sure.
The narration was en point. It's my first time listening to Joel and I'll definitely be stalking his narrations now. As a non Australian he pretty much nailed the accent (I get the feeling he was channelling Cleaver Greene). He even got the regional Queensland peculiarities right. I assume he might have liaised with Lisa about those. His comic timing was excellent. I felt some of the American accents were a little dodgy but I figured it must be really difficult to flip from one to the other so quickly! Overall it was an excellent performance and really contributed to the enjoyment of the book.
I've listened a lot from these authors and thoroughly enjoy their collaboration.

Great story, loved Mark, certainly a one off character. Met his match in Deacon though. Lots of humour, a great romance, and a brilliant storyline.string support characters also. Joel Leslie killed the narration.
