Summary

He's That Guy.

You know, the hero in almost every romance novel. The super-rich, powerful CEO who is beyond sexy. Lives in a penthouse. Is wicked in bed. Has massive.... feet. Is kind of a jerk, but really he's not because he harbors some major secret that, once revealed, explains why he is the way he is - therefore completely redeeming himself and making all the listeners who hated to love him swoon....

Yeah. That one.

Well, I found him.

I'm a writer who has spent years searching for the perfect muse.

Now that I know he exists, I have a mission.

To make him fall in love with me.

This should be easy. I mean, I have issues, but above all, I'm a great catch.

Problem is, I did a stupid thing.

And now he hates me.

Unfortunately for him, he's my That Guy.

And he's going to love me....

Whether he wants to or not.

Definitely funny

I laughed out loud multiple times, but it's funny in the same, uncomfortable way Fawlty Towers is funny. She's obnoxious and slightly unhinged, but her potty mouth is hilarious.

I LAUGHED SO MANY TIMES

Funny, so funny, boy did I laugh at some of the scenes in this book.

The whole book is like a p** take on romance tropes as the heroin sets out to find That guy, the kind of guy books are written about to help her with her own romance novel. Did she ever write it? I've not a clue but I enjoyed Penelope's journey to finding her perfect guy anyway.

I listened to this book in audio and the narrator did a brilliant job at bringing the characters to life although I found the recording too quiet even on full volume. I think the audio compliments the story better than if you were reading it.

Hilarious!

Jake and Penelope are fantastic characters in this well written read that’s absolutely hilarious. In fact it’s probably the funniest book I’ve ever read! I’m a newbie to Kim Jones’ words but that’s about to change. I highly recommend it !

Funny and enjoyable listen

This was genuinely funny. I often find books that claim to be funny are more eye roll inducing and try-hard slapstick, but I kept chuckling to myself and getting odd looks whilst listening to this.

It’s a bit lighter and doesn’t grab me by the heart as much as some, but still an enjoyable listen.

The male narrator is only for the epilogue, and instead it’s single point of view with the female narrator.

Excellent, Funny and worth listening to.

Has all the romantic comedy characteristics. Penelope brings the fun factor to this book. Highly recommended and you won't be disappointed. Has the HEA a romance book should have.
