Summary

From USA Today and Amazon Charts best-selling author Meghan Quinn, and narrated in duet by Aaron Shedlock and Stella Hunter, comes a fresh take on a romantic-comedy classic, When Harry Met Sally. This steamy, laugh-out-loud enemies-to-lovers romance is about an annoyingly handsome coworker and the woman who refuses to be charmed by him.

Am I friends with JP Cane?

Ha! That's laughable.

Besides the fact that he’s adopted some far-fetched notion from the movie When Harry Met Sally that says men and women can't be friends and work together, it’s safe to say we're not friends. He's annoyingly loud, obnoxiously handsome, and has made an art out of poking all my hot buttons...multiple times a day.

So you can imagine how disgruntled I am when I not only have to fly to San Francisco with him for work, but stay in the same penthouse. Yup, we're sharing the same air, 24-7. We're talking full-fledged working roommates.

The man doesn't know what it means to wear a shirt, thrives off protein bars, and you guessed it, moans loud enough for people to believe he's Meg Ryan in a restaurant.

Spoiler Alert: I WON'T be having what he's having.

Tack on his continuous flirting and his polished good looks, and I'm caught staring down the barrel of a seductive temptation that makes it hard for me to sleep at night.

But guess who can control herself? This girl.

Because if there is one thing I know for certain, it's that JP Cane and I are so not meant to be.

Fantastic narration

The narration on this was perfection, which is standard when Aaraon Shedlock and Stella Hunter are involved.
As for the story itself. I enjoyed this one and thought JP was lovely. Kelsey was okay, but her behaviour in the 3rd Act grew irritating and childish. This need for the 3rd Act shenanigans knocked a star off for me, but overall it was a very enjoyable listen and I would recommend

Sweet and Funny!

This is a sweet and funny Romantic Comedy. I loved Kelsey and JP's story. They are both interesting characters. Some scenes are hilarious. This story is interconnected with A Not So Meet Cute. Aaron Shedlock and Stella Hunter did an excellent job with the narration. I enjoyed it.

Not as good as the first book

Firstly I'd like to say that the narrators were amazing, but the story was not. The following review is about the story only as I would've given it 5 stars for the narration.

Disappointed with this book. This is the 2nd book in this series concentrating on JP and Kelsey. Where the first book was funny and heartwarming, this book just made me want to reach into the story and slap Kelsey. She was annoying, insecure, selfish and completely up herself. JP on the other hand was humble, sweet, attentive and had a beautiful soul. If I had his ear I would've told him to run and never look back!
I love Megan Quinn, but this book was lacking, sorry......really not sure if I should pick up the next book in the series if this is what we get.

Funny but cringey at times

Not as good as the first book. Kelsey came across really nice in the first one but this one I was not a fan of her personality at all. She was self-centred. Also think that it could have been cut by 50-100pages; felt like there was a lot or repetition of “he’s not the one for me”, “he doesn’t want this” blah blah blah. However! I loved the audio performances; great duet and was easy to listen to; also nice seeing Lottie/Huxley again. Overall, will read on for the final book so couldn’t have been that terrible 😅

Enemies to Lovers JP and Kelsey

So Not Meant to Be is a good enemies to lovers story. One of the things I really liked about this book was JP's drunken ramblings and phone calls. His love for pigeons was really endearing and a little heartbreaking at times.
I did struggle a little bit with Kelsey. She did have some hilarious lines and I do love her relationship with her sister. She came across as mean a few times. Her opinions of JP did not always make sense to me. He did not demonstrate that he was as bad of a guy as she accused him of being.
Aaron Shedlock and Stella Hunter were simply fantastic with this narration. They are great together and this book was no exception.

outstanding narration

this has got to be my favourite form of narration and compliments the book so very well, that coupled with the brilliant performances from Aaron Shedlock and Stella Hunter make this a truly exceptional listening experience and I highly recommend listening to it. I thoroughly enjoyed this second book in the series and hearing snippets from previous couples from other books of Megan's was a great touch. I'm looking forward to Brakers book.

So cringe

I couldn’t finish it. It was so sickly sweet and cringy I had to turn it off. 90 mins left I couldn’t listen any more. Kelsey is as dull as dishwater.

Rom-com with brilliant narrators

Kelsey and JP's story was the perfect rom-com. I so loved their interactions, all the things that went through were very entertaining. I always love Meghan Quinn's writing and this one was no exception. The story was great, and the characters I love them all. I got the audiobook narrated by Aaron Shedlock and Stella Hunter and it was fantastic, their narration brought this story to the next level. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Bit of a slow burner

This was only the second book I had bought by this author. This was a very, very, slow, burning romance. One of the reasons that I buy these books is not because of a purely romantic view, (which is nice to have by the way), but I also like to have some pretty steamy scenes as well. This one didn’t have anything more than flirtation right the way through, with some heavy petting thrown in. I can get 1,000,001 books that offer romance alone, so I was deeply disappointed when I found out that this book was just a glorified romance. The only bonking going on was written in the very last chapter and even then, all it said was ‘they went upstairs and made love’. In fact it might’ve been in the epilogue, so memorable was this book LOL. I’m not put off of this author by this however, as I have a trilogy box set of there’s to listen to. I’m hoping this will match up to the first book I bought which was brilliant. Narrators were fab by the way.

Spicy emotional rom com

Got to be honest here - Meghan Quinn can do no wrong when it comes to fun, sexy romantic comedies! And this one is super hot, hot, hot. It’s also quite emotional. All my favourite tropes in one perfect package, friends to lovers, enemies to lovers, opposites attract workplace romance, not quite a forbidden romance but let’s just say that Kelsey is not open to having an office romance with her direct boss. JP though has other ideas. A fun romance with wonderful characters making for a truly entertaining addictive read. We also get an insight in to previous Meghan Quinn characters with a ‘Meant To Be’ podcast which is particularly fun if you’ve read their stories. The audio version is narrated in duet by Stella Hunter and Aaron Shedlock, and I loved it. Perfect narration - faultless.
