Summary

A new person will enter your life in the early year, Leo. Look past any moments of frustration they might bring and laugh - this could be the start of a thriving friendship.

Theo Wallace usually laughs at the horoscopes his mom sends. Still hung up on his ex-girlfriend and practically friendless, this one begs him to reconsider. Because a friendship that stuck, that thrived...well, that would be a reason to leave past pains behind and look to the bright future.

When his sister Leone challenges him to find her the perfect date for a spring wedding, Theo uses it as a chance to make new friends. Theo's ex-economics tutor and newest roommate, Mr. Jamie Cooper, seems to be a possible and convenient match. Real convenient. Like written in the stars, convenient. All he has to do is make sure this Jamie is good enough. Could really be "The One" for her and the friend for him. But watch out, Leo, the stars have a surprise in store....

Contains mature themes.

Loved the story, shame about the narrator....

Eek, dreadful. Had to dnf after 25%, and was so looking forward to the audio. This story was one of my absolute faves of 2016, but the narrator made Jamie sound as though he had a stick up his backside, so excruciatingly pompous and Theo was just wooden. No hint of the devilry and laughter the story seemed to suggest for him [and I have read the story 3 times], so disappointing. Unfortunately Mr Sanda was the wrong choice for this story, he's too monotonous, and I won't be listening to anything else he narrates. 😕

Amazing story with a sub-par narration.

I've learned a couple things since buying and listening to the audio...
1. I'm still just as in love with the story as I was the first 4 times I've read it.
2. Sub-par narration didn't take the enjoyment out of the story for me. Let's talk about the narration by Rudy Sanda. His voice for Theo was the most "enjoyable" of the voices used. The one for Jamie grated on my ears and didn't match *his* voice AT. ALL. Just because Jamie is responsible doesn't mean he should sound like frustrated 80 year old man. The voices for all the secondary characters were also not on par and even worse than Jamie's (ok, maybe not worse but tied for the worst). Still, I'm a fan of the story and that is the ONLY reason I stuck out the audio.

Love but

I love this series and was so excited to see it coming to audible that I ignored my other ongoing books to listen to one crazy Leo. It is fun and funny book; the romance is slow but so damn adorable.
That being said, I'm not sure I can finish it in audiobook format; the narration is just not right. Mr Sanda's narration doesn't not fit the characters or the pace. It will be hard to finish but maybe it will grow on me, I have to see.... I've never reviewed a book half an hour in. I'll have to get back to this

SO much fun!

I love this book and I'm VERY excited to see book 2 coming out soon.
Excellent narration too :)

(Don't wait, grab it now - you're going to have a ridiculous grin on your face the whole time you're listening)

Enjoyable

I enjoyed the book when reading it. As an audible it came alive in a different way bringing a new dynamic and dimension to it.

Theo had me laughing and the narrator does a good job at giving us this lazy Leo at his best.

Love this series!

I usually don’t like slow burn romance but no one does it like Ms. Sunday. Theo and Jamie are perfect for each other! All the feels!

A funny witty book finally out in audio!

This is the first time I have listened to this narrator and I think he did a pretty good job with Jamie, Leo and Leona. some of the side characters had an annoying, nasally voice that I did not like as much but it did not bother me too much.

Anyta writs unique intricate stories were words are colors she uses to draw beautifully with. I love these kind of artistry with language, and I felt the connections between the characters were so deep and interesting because of the way the were written. Leo's use of "phrase of the day" tells so much about his emotions and also about who he is as a man. I love his strong connection to his sister and how independent she is. It is always nice to see a strong female character, and one with a disability as well.
The slow burn is bout tantalizing and frustrating, but the bond between both men is so interesting. I love the slow buildup of the friendship and the quirky banter they share. This is a funny sweet book that hides deep emotions and I feel like this is it's magic.
