Second chance love with a ghostly twist...

Not Another Bad Date is part of a series (Writers friends). Not all of the titles of the series are available as audiobook but this is the right order:
Sex, Lies, and Online Dating (Writer Friends 1)- not audiobook
I'm In No Mood For Love (Writer Friends 2)- not audiobook
Tangled Up In You (Writer Friends 3) Audiobook available
Not Another Bad Date (Writer Friends 4) Audiobook available

This book can be read as a stand alone but it's better to read in order so that you can enjoy catching up on the lives of the previous couples. This is just another great book by Rachel Gibson. Romantic, hot, funny! I just love a lost love story! Adele and Zach dated in college but Zach's ex-girlfriend tells him she's pregnant so he marries her and Adele is heartbroken. Fast forward 14 years and Zach's wife dies (there's a secondary story about the ghost of the ex-wife being on limbo, which happens to be Walmart and that's kind of weird). Adele and Zach find each other again and then the magic begins.

Narration: Nicole Poole did a very good job with this book. Great male voices and you could always tell the different characters apart. There was a bit of background noise but it didn't take away from the story. I enjoyed every minute of this listen :)

Very Good Contemporary Romance

Not Another Bad Date was a very good contemporary romance. Adele hasn't had much luck in the dating department for years, until she sees her ex-boyfriend Zack. But he hurt her in the past, so she is reluctant to fall in love with him again. However, the attraction is still there, so when these two get together, the sparks do fly. I liked the way their relationship develops slowly, and we really do get to know the characters. My one complaint is that the narrator's breath should have been edited out. After a while I did get used to it, but I would have enjoyed it more if it hadn't been there. Otherwise, this was a very good, very easy going romance.
