Very funny... loved the characters. I think I like the actual voice personalities over reading it.

Here’s what’s going on. When Hollywood heartthrob Vaughn West discovers his girlfriend’s been sleeping with his best friend via a talk show, he decides the best way to get over the hurt is by drinking and shagging his days away. That is until a hot movie deal lands in his lap, now Vaughn’s getting his act together and focusing on the movie until his wardrobe assistant catches his eye.
Charly’s landed her dream job but it’s not exactly going as planned and the fact they can’t keep their hands off each other isn’t helping. Neither’s sure what’s going on between them but the one thing they do know is that they want to keep it quiet. Charly has secrets she needs to keep and Vaughn has his tarnished reputation to rebuild.
Charly and Vaughn were great together. They just clicked and I loved the easy banter they had. And they had the best first meeting, ever. Seriously, how can things not be interesting when the first time they meet he gets aroused when she’s taking in his pants and she accidentally pokes him in a rather private area with a straight pin.
So, this one definitely started with lust. They were both attracted to each other and gagging for a shag but they weren’t looking for a relationship. Vaughn needed to sort himself out and get back on track after being a party animal and Charly was hiding things. The relationship was gradual and bloomed when they spent time at Vaughn’s house away from his celebrity lifestyle. I liked seeing them grow as a couple.
I wasn’t a fan of the drama in this one, which is why I gave it 4 instead of a 5-cup rating. I’m never a fan of drama for drama’s sake and this is what it felt like. The argument/misunderstanding when Vaughn’s ex pops back up in his life then Charly’s little surly moment when she thought Vaughn wasn’t going to ask her to his sister’s wedding, they seemed to be added in just for the sake of drama. Then there was the big requisite blow up, which could have been avoided if Charly just would have told the truth. Seriously, a five-minute conversation over a cup of tea or coffee and it would have been done and dusted. Also, throughout the book, this ‘secret’ was built up to seem like something more than what it turned out it be and that just annoyed me. I need something more substantial for my dramatic moments.
I’ve really been enjoying dual narration in my audiobooks lately. It just adds something extra to the book. Of course, Amanda Ronconi is one of my favorite narrators so I’m always thrilled when she narrators. This was my first time listening to Alexander Cendese and I enjoyed his male narrations, although his female narrations were a little too whiny.
Overall, this was the book I needed at time I needed it. It had wit, humor, heat, and fun. Yeah, there were a few blips with the drama but I liked characters and I liked they were different. I’ve been enjoying seeing more crafty heroines, Charly’s a seamstress, and this, I believe, was the first time I’ve read a book where the hero was an actor.

Another funny and sexy book by Samantha Towle that I couldn't stop listening to once I started.
Alexander Cendese & Amanda Ronconi's narration was brilliant, they really captured the characters and brought the story to life.
This is definitely going on my re-listen pile.

What's Not to love about this.
Sexy actor in the prime of his career recently cheated on by his girlfriend with his co-star actor and best friend, that right there had me cheering in Vaughns corner from the beginning hoping he finds real love.
And then there's Charlie, Vaughns newly appointed wardrobe assistant in his new film, a woman with a sad backstory but a sassy take no crap kind of girl.
Two great characters that were destined to be together despite their awkward or should I say painful first meet that leads to Charlie sticking a pin somewhere very private.
I laughed often, I swooned, the two of them were like rabbits so the hotness was also there too.
Wardrobe malfunction is a great light- hearted recommended rom-com.
Told in first person dual pov leading to hea.
I purchased in KU then listened in audible, loved the dual male & female narration.
I have never laughed so hard iny life. I couldn't stop even in public
Its the first time I tried Samantha Towle and I looove herm after reading a blurb of the mext book after this I was intrigued and she didn't disappoint. The emotions are raw amd real and gosh the pin incident was awesome.

Pretty good listen - not Towle’s best but nice. I think my issue was that I picked the secret early on so wasn’t surprised at the revelation. Otherwise fine, not a keeper for me.
