Most men can’t handle Hazel. But her best friend Josh isn’t most men. Don’t miss New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren’s new novel about two people who are definitely not dating…no matter how often they end up in bed together.
Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun.
Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.
Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them...right?
Wud be 5 but...
I loved and enjoyed everything about this audiobook. Obvi, it is another jackpot romantic comedy we’ve all come to love and expect from this dynamic duo of authors. The female narrative is spot on with both male and female characters and the male narrative is perfect for the male character. I just can’t get past the male narrative of the female character. I’m sorry... it just grates on me throughout the entire book. It comes across whiny and annoying. I get through the book because, come on, the authors and the rest of the narration. But maybe next time look for a different male narrator. Love you both, Christina & Lauren!!
I couldn’t get through the first hour of listening to this book. The female character was awful, If the rider meant for it to be inspiring and free spirited character, they did not succeed.
Couldn’t get past it..
I’m so bummed. I really wanted to love this story and I’m sure I would have had I just purchase the book but I tried the audiobook this time and it was a big mistake! The female voice is perfect for Hazel’s quirky character but Josh’s part, read by Todd is brutal. I stuck it out for 3 of his parts but then just couldn’t get past it. Him speaking as Hazel literally ruined the story for me. So so distracting. I feel like his Josh’s character is meant to be much more stoic but Todd gives him such a nasally/ almost whiny tone. I’ll eventually end up buying the book version but I need to give it some time to fully get Josh’s (not) voice out of my head!
