Publisher's Summary

Getting experience with the guy next door seems like a great idea - until the lines blur.
Dev, a geeky first year physics student, has zero sexual experience and he's determined to change that ASAP. After a bad time in halls of residence, he's starting the summer term with different housemates and a new plan of action.
Ewan lives in the house next door to Dev. He's young, free, and single, and isn't looking to change that anytime soon. When awkward circumstances throw them together, Ewan offers to help Dev out in the bedroom in return for math tutoring, and Dev jumps at the chance.
They work their way through Dev's sex to-do list, but what starts as a perfect no-strings arrangement gets more complicated as their feelings for each other begin to grow. If they're going to turn their lessons in lovemaking into something more permanent, they need to work out how they feel about each other - before they get to the end of Dev's list.

adorable New Adult romance - great series

4.5 stars
I received a free copy of this audiobook for my listening pleasure.

I love lists. Seriously. I live my life by lists and the happiness of checking of items of said lists. So the blurb of this book sold me when it first came out, and I loved it! And having a favourite come out in audio format is always great.

Dev is moving out of the dorms and into shared housing. College so far, has not been exactly what he had been dreaming of, and he hopes this will be a fresh start for him. And it seems like he might be right. Almost all of his new house mates are nice and friendly, two of the guy's in the house are a couple and the boy next door is an adorable Scotsman, with a big smile and a sexy accent.

Dev lives his life by lists. Short term goals and long term ones. His long term goals include making friends, learning to cook and joining Grindr to get some sexual experience, in order to get a boyfriend. What could go wrong?

Dev and Ewan are adorable and hot together and it was lovely to meet the couples from the two other books again. This is the third in the series, but can easily be read as a stand alone, if you wish. However, please do not cheat yourself out of the cuteness that are the two first books of this series.

The narrator Alan Steadmann does a good job as always with distinctive voices - we even got a bit of a Scottish lilt for Ewan - and re-enactment of emotions. I can warmly recommend this series in both book and audio book form.

I really loved this one...

Would you consider the audio edition of Practice Makes Perfect to be better than the print version?

I'm not sure if I'd say better but for me it was probably more enjoyable. The narrator just did a fabulous job with the accents and I love an English and/or Scottish accent and in this story I got both.

What did you like best about this story?

The humor it was cute and engaging and the things that happened were things that I could easily imagine happening in real life.

Which scene was your favorite?

There were several but the one that comes to mind was when a parcel from Amazon was delivered to Ewan by mistake and he opened it and then had to give it to Dev when he realized the mistake. Their conversation was priceless.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I'm not sure there was any one particular moment. Practice Makes Perfect was one of those books that engaged and enchanted me from the word go. I loved the characters and the flow of the story was excellent.

Any additional comments?

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a sweet, engaging feel good romance that's guaranteed to leave you smiling and wanting more.A copy of this audiobook was graciously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
