Summary

Right place. Right time. Wrong guy....

After breaking up with her childhood sweetheart, clueless dater Rosie has found herself in a boyfriend-drought. So when she finally swipes right on a guy who seems interested, she can’t wait to meet up in person. 

Until she’s left standing alone. In a bar. Stood up.

Enter Noah. Confident, funny...and a serial first dater. Offering to give Rosie a crash course in seduction, this could be just what she needs. Until her matchmaker turns out to be the best date she’s ever had - and Rosie wonders if she wants the fake dates to be the real ones after all.... 

A hilarious, heartwarming romantic comedy about what happens when the wrong guy turns up at the right time, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Mhairi McFarlane.

From the USA Today best-selling author of The Wedding Date!

the least appealing man's voice possible

loved the book but the narrator gave a really horrible 'happy chappy' voice to Noah which essentially ruined it for me. It is a shame as her performance was otherwise good, but I just couldn't get past it

The worst male voice ever!

As soon as the narrator started speaking my heart dropped. I've heard this narrator once before and her voices for the males of the story then were just awful. I'm afraid the voice given to Noah in this book were easily as uncomfortable listening. He sounded squeaky and as if had a cold and a blocked nose, which is just what she did on the other book I listened to. It's a real shame as it really does spoil the whole thing. Will avoid all books narrated by her in future.

Loved the story

I loved the story and characters but struggled with the voice given to Noah. Ended up buying the book to read on my kindle instead of listening to it on audible.

Great story...

Loved the story on this book, but didn’t warm to the voice that the narrator gave Noah. I found it grated on me and lessened my enjoyment of the audiobook.
