Great books

What I’m Looking For
This is the first book on the Boston Classics series. This retro book takes us back to the 80’s and all the nostalgia from they time - limited social media, answering machines and corded telephones.

Kate is a bit awkward, working in a man’s world and doing her best to fit in.

Will is an actor/ part- time bartender who is full of humor and has a great personality.

Kate and Will happen upon one another and their friendship/relationship begins to bloom…with a lot of Shakespeare quotes along the way.

There are ups and downs along the way but they both find what they are looking for.

Joe Arden and Karen White do a fabulous job with the narration. They bring the perfect emotion and personality to each of the characters! I love audiobooks because they being a whole different experience to the story.

Signed, Sealed and Delivered
This is a great pre-quality to Forget about me. We are introduced to Ben and Lucy and their young romance…I love their letters to each other.

Lucy is first and knows what she wants. Ben is a bit of a rule follower but is so smitten with Lucy she can persuade him to do things.

This is a great quick listen. Carly Robins and Bradley Ford did a fantastic job with the narration. Their voices were full of emotion and gave these characters great voices.

Forget About Me
This is book 2 of the Boston Classic series - another fantastic retro stories taking us back to the 80’s.

This second chance-brothers best friend romance is a great read filled with nostalgia, laughs and smokin hot chemistry.

Ben and Lucy have a history that’s been a secret between the two for many years. They both have some baggage they are trying to work through along with some hurt…but they can’t fight their attraction to one another. They are both amazing people that always put others ahead of themselves.

Karen writes great books that take us back - phones with long cords and mix tapes are just a few mentioned in the story.

Emma Wilder and Brian Pallino do a fantastic job with the narration. They bring amazing emotion, accents and a variety of voices to these characters. The 80’s twang is awesome!!

I liked the 80’s music references at the beginning g of each chapter. Also, during the flashbacks there was the sound is a tape rewinding that added to the audio experience.

Great start to a series! ,

Take a fun trip back to the 80’s

Boston Classics Box Set 1 is a must-listen. Author Karen Grey’s books always make you laugh out loud, swoon ‘til you shiver and put on your thinking cap about what’s really happening just under the surface and the wonderful narrators take these stories to another level with their perfect pacing, perfect tone and perfect emotion. It’s the perfect introduction to the Boston Classics Series and the perfect trip down memory lane. Did I say perfect enough times? It’s true. Go back to the 80’s and re-live the big hair, shoulder pads and goofy catch phrases. Wonder how we got along without cell phones, social media, streaming and dating apps and had to make do with answering machines, mix tapes, and actually talking face-to-face. Chapters are introduced by something cleverly connected to the story.

Grey makes these stories original yet familiar, laugh-out-loud funny yet serious and thought-provoking, sweet and sexy. Perfect (there’s that word again) standalones but do yourself a favor and start at the beginning and get to know these wonderful characters one-by-one as they are introduced and connect to one another. I am sure you will grow to love them all much as I have and never want your blast from the past to end. I was sent this free box set and am voluntarily leaving this honest review. I recommend these books and everything this author writes without hesitation; all opinions are my own.

80s vibes, laugh out loud funny

Thanks to Home Cooked Books and the author for the chance to listen to a free ALC copy of this box set and the chance to give my candid review.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (0-5)
Audiobook Narration: 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧 (0-5)
Overall: 4.5 (0-5)
Steam: 🔥🔥 (0-5) foreplay is descriptive and then fade-to-black

What I’m Starry-Eyed Over:
🤩 Entertaining voice narrations—All of them give an amazing mix of feels that are super cute and totally hot!!
🤩 80s vibes—some might even find this series a bit historical romance .ha The Brady Bunch fandom, cool beans, frisky feelings, corded phones, pay phones, answering machine messages, Walkman, letter writing, seatbelt learning, mixtapes.
🤩 Laugh-out-loud funny (with all the feels, and even with intense topics and grief).
🤩 Delicious description of physical attraction—it’s one of my favorite things in books.
🤩 First kiss goodness.
🤩 Pets in books.
🤩 Male actors, trying to find their way. And, females making their way in male dominated careers. Adorable and likable characters. Great characterization.
🤩 In the novella, I loved the teenage fun (which sometimes doesn’t work for me because I have teens and YA of my own).

What I’m Wishing/Dizzy About:
💫 I liked the steamy descriptions during foreplay. Then I was caught off guard when it was more fade-to-black than I was expecting.
💫 I wish What I’m Looking For had some physical connection/intimacy after the drama. It helps me believe in the HEA.

Trigger Warnings:
🔬 Loss of a loved one in a car accident.
