Summary

Gemma Summers is unlucky in love. She's known it since third grade, when her first crush blew a spitball into her hair, and a decade-long string of bad dates, boring sex, and abysmal morning afters has done nothing to improve her prospects. But when a random radio call-in contest lands her courtside tickets to the hottest playoff game of the season, Gemma's luck may finally be on the upswing, even if it doesn't exactly seem like it when the dreaded Jumbotron kiss cam lands on her and her date, who's too busy ignoring her to notice.

Chase Croft doesn't date. Despite ample opportunity as Boston's most eligible bachelor, the reformed bad boy would rather put his energy into taking over the family business than weed through a world of gold diggers to find an honest woman. But when the beautiful girl in the seat next to him becomes a courtside spectacle at the hands of her loser boyfriend, he can't help but step in and save the day.

couldn't stand the characters in the story

Never like when the characters are shallow. Can't relate at all with any of them. I read a view that said this book was funny, I think it is more annoying than funny.

Funny but Narration was rough.

I truly liked the personalities of most of the characters. It was a bit exaggerated here and there, not believable.
However if you want reality you probably should steer clear of the romance genre, just saying. Plus the ridiculousness of it provided half the humor.
The writing was good but there were several times that I almost stopped listening because of the narration. I understand male voices are not perfect with a female narrator, but these male voices were pretty awful. Whenever a male character was mad they were almost whiny. It did make it hard to listen to at times.
I will definitely read more Julie Johnson and would even listen to more on audible if there was a different narrator.

Good story but the narrator missed the mark.

I enjoyed the story and would recommend this book but only if the narrator being yell-y isn't a problem for you. She was always way too emotional and it got annoying about halfway through. She missed many jokes because of it. It didn't bother me too much but it was still kinda annoying. She also managed to not yell the lines that were suppose to be super emotional..

No, it's you.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Seriously, this was a credit wasted. First of all, very immaturely written. Chase needs to stop saying Gemma all the time. In fact, everyone needs to stop saying Gemma so much. It makes me wonder if the hardcover book has Gemma written a minimum of 7 times on each page. Also, Chase's character is written terribly. At first he can't love and has never been in a relationship and will never be one. And literally almost the next page he's in love and can't live without her. All of this, is besides the fact that each step is terribly predictable. The narrator? Okay well, she should tween's characters. Her voice for the males is incredibly immature, and makes the man sound like he's hidden in a dark dungeon, with his eyes hidden, while speaking.

Just ok....

The story is unrealistic. I didn't like the main girl character. She was very whiny and immature.

Story has potential but narrator has ruined it

I'm sending this one back. What I have listened to has been a good story but the narrator has no timing. There have been funny parts that she missed the mark on completely. The first three chapters were hilarious. The performance was great but at about chapter 5 she became too serious. I'm going to buy the book and read it myself.

Narrator needs to go! She yells too much.

This is the 2nd book on here that I really wanted to enjoy but couldn't because the narrator was so bad. I listen to the books thru ear buds and kept having to pull them out of my ears to keep from having my ear drums damaged. One minute (especially when she's doing the male character voice) she's almost whispering. The next minute she switches to the female character's voice and she's yelling. I liked the premise of the story so I'm going to move over to the kindle version to check it out to avoid permanent hearing loss from burst eardrums. Incidentally, I'm doing the same for the other book I accessed on here too.

Doesn't anyone LISTEN to these narrators before posting the books on here? With all the sucky one's I've come across lately, I'd have to say they don't.

meh

Maybe a biased review as I have some problems with dark romance protagonists in general. The way they act is disgusting. Consider that the heroines first bf acted as Chase does; fits of anger, restraining her against her will, belligerent in general with the only difference being that he supposedly truly cares for her and he is far more attractive. A man in reality acting in this way would either be run away from or a domestic violence charge in the making, and I just think it's wrong to glorify crappy personality traits in these novels as many young women read these books then fantasize about finding just such a man. A man can have a powerful confident personality without behaving like a teenager with rage issues. I am myself a physically intimidating male and would never act in the way that the protagonist does and very seriously doubt anyone would want to interact with me of I did.

Horrible narration

Only managed a few chapters due to the narration, very annoying and nasal, plus a ridiculous main character - stupid woman should have ditched the loser boyfriend way before she did !!

Too much like 50 shades

The plot was too much like 50 shades. A billionaire, a hoepless liberal arts girl that needs saving, jealous ex girlfriend, random family feuds -- the story was SUPER cheesy and very unbelievable but I was entertained nevertheless and it made an excellent distraction on my cleaning / chore running hours :)!
