Summary

Juno

When I'm late for a job interview and get stuck on an elevator with an annoyingly sexy, ancient-Rome-obsessed grump, the last thing I expect is for him to be the billionaire owner of the building. I also don't expect to almost kill him...accidentally, of course.

Sure, I don't get the plant care position I applied for, but I do receive an interesting offer.

Lucius needs to trick the public (and his grandma) into thinking he's in a relationship, and I need tuition money to get my botany degree. Our arrangement is mutually beneficial—that is, until I start catching feelings.

If being a cactus lover has taught me anything, it’s that if you get too close, there's a good chance you'll end up hurt.

Lucius

Post-elevator incident, I'm left with three things: my favorite water bottle full of pee, a life-threatening allergic reaction, and paparazzi photos of my “girlfriend” and I that make my Gram the happiest woman alive.

Naturally, my next step is to blackmail—I mean, convince—this (admittedly cute) girl to pretend to date me. That way, my grandma stays happy, and as a bonus, I can keep the gold diggers at bay.

Unfortunately, my arch nemesis, a.k.a. biology, kicks in, and the whole "not getting physical" part of our agreement becomes increasingly hard to abide by. Worse yet, the longer I'm with Juno, the more my delicately crafted icy exterior melts away.

If I'm not careful, Juno will tear down my walls completely.

Very enjoyable

I love Sebastian York and his narration. I liked the female narration but thought she over acted a little which spoiled it a touch for me and I believe the delivery could have been better damped down a tad. But still enjoyed it. Story was fun. Well done narrators and writer.

Lovely storyline but VERY slow

I enjoyed the characters and the storyline. However, don’t know about other readers but I buy these books to indulge my naughty pleasure. If I wanted a plain romance book there are gazillions to choose from. In this book, the only 🌶️🌶️🌶️ is the last two or three chapters, other than a couple of kisses (literally TWO kisses from what I remember). I must say though, the narrators were brilliant.

Ok story

The story passed the time. Something was missing, not enough spice and time spent exploring the union. Love the side charters.

Disappointed- not worth the credit used

The story moved very fast and seemed rushed in some parts, I liked the narrator’s voices but was disappointed that I used a credit for the story.

Entertaining, easy listening.

An enjoyable story. Reality may be a little stretched at times but that’s allowed with fiction and makes it all the more likeable. So….nice storyline and great narrators make this a book to recommend.

Great Book!!

Sebastian York delivered yet another great narrative as only his narration seems to do. The story line was cute, and the author added just the right amount of humor. I will be looking for more books by Misha Bell.

Another awesome Rom-com from Misha Bell

Take one cactus-like billionaire who’s obsessed with Ancient Rome and one cactus-loving woman with the name of a Roman goddess and you get the opening to this book. Of course, like all of Misha Bells books, this one is laugh-out-loud funny, full of warmth and heart, and something just a little extra to bind it all together! If you haven’t read/listed to this one, do it now! As for me, I’ll be in swoony-heaven, waiting for their next book (and re-listening to some of their works).

Laugh out loud and Swoony RomCom

If you’re looking for a cute, funny, fake relationship rom com, look no further. Misha Bell writes another fascinating, laugh out loud, grumpy/sunshine rom com. Lucius is a grumpy Billionaire who is obsessed with Ancient Rome. Juno is a sunshine, sassy cactus lover who will bring him to his knees. Their chemistry is slow burn. They have the best witty banter. I love how Lucius tries to resist Juno because he doesn’t want to be a “slave to his biology”. They both have some quirky, adorable personalities that complement each other well. I absolutely loved this on ebook however on audio it’s so much more! Erin Mallon and Sebastian York were perfectly cast as Juno and Lucius. Erin does an incredible job as the sassy, funny lovable Juno, who talks to her pet cactus plant, El Duderino. SebYo as Lucius is so swoony and adorable. He captures his prickly but soft side perfectly. They do great job captivating you from start to finish. This audiobook will leave you feeling giddy afterward.

The fartlek plan was cute

One tech nerd and one plant nerd find romance. Cute and somewhat funny story, if you like silly. Both characters were likable and the slow burn story kept me listening. The author did repeat the fact that the h had dyslexia and therefore had a chip on her shoulder, ugh. This story did have a bit of a different plot with the addition of all the latin and roman facts the H enjoyed. York was a great narrator. Mallon not so much for my ears. The feel good factor of this story is worth the listen.

Grumpy Roman God

This was a fun quick book. I started hearing this book on a plane ride and needed to hide my smiles. I didn’t want my seat mates to think I was crazy. I continues the book once I arrived at my hotel and unpacked. Then realized I was so invested in finding out what happened I couldn’t put it down.

The ML was adorable. Throughout the story, you find out that his life has been difficult and it helped shaped him into the jerk he is but leave it to the FL to break down that Roman God exterior. I would definitely hear/read this book again.
