Audiobook Club by Jessica Frances

Jacquie says: "Not going to lie, Audiobook Club was a surprise hit for me. I knew pretty early on that I was loving it."

From the blurb:

Being a police officer in a small town doesn’t often offer up many surprises. Working the night shift means I rarely see or do much of anything that doesn’t involve a speeding vehicle, or a drunken rant. And, while quiet nights are better than deadly ones, it still takes some getting used to after living in a big city for years.

So, I’m rather shocked when I pull over a driver and find the dirtiest audiobook playing from the car speakers. And, paint me intrigued when the hot driver struggles to get the enticing words to stop broadcasting to the entire street.

The embarrassing encounter has us both lowering our guard, and I find myself a new friend, one who suggests we start our own audiobook club.

Soon, we become more than just friends as we listen and fall into stories and new worlds together and, naturally, the sexy scenes we’re listening to become a blueprint for our own experiences to try … together.

But, when life intrudes and our audiobook club breaks up, I’m left wondering if everything was just fiction, or if maybe there is something real under it all.

Can we get our happily ever after, or will it all fizzle out before it has a chance to become something permanent?

Jacquie's Review:

The first interaction is a proper meet-cute with a side of embarrassment and humour. Their connection moves swiftly and there is a sprinkling of steam throughout. I loved how the audiobooks were used and the scenes from them "copied." 

There are scenes of homophobia and racial abuse on page and references to past abuse. 

I really enjoyed the epilogue(s) so that we get to see not only the main couple, but other characters get their HEA. Which was great since I became quite invested in some of the side characters. Loved the humour, loved the connection and the story.

Lindz' Review:

Russell ends up in the situation every spicy book reader prays will never happen. Pulled over by a cop and his audio book is in the middle of a heated seen. The best part he can’t get the audio book to pause…because of course his radio on his car is broke.

This book is an adorable meet cute set up with instant connection between the 2 main characters. I absolutely loved the smooth back and forth dialogue between Russell and Ethan. Them connecting over a few good dirty books and ever trying a few things out sounds like a bet any single person would go along with. I will say Ezma, Ethans grandmother absolutely won over my heart and I know you will fall in love with her too. She reminded me of my grandmother that also has Alzheimer’s. She sometimes stole the show, but in the best of ways. I loved that though there was talk of spice from the start they didn’t go all the way in the bedroom until farther in the book. You can tell they really felt comfortable around each other from the start, but didn’t want to rush anything. The bonus parts at the end really tied the book together with a nice red bow at the end. It was a nice surprise to get all that extra HEA story line about them. I can not say enough good things about this book, but wont say any more as I don’t want to give any spoilers away.

This is a fun book you will not want to put down. It’s a quick read with mostly laugher and a light back story. It’s a great read to pick up when you just want to sit and do nothing, but read.

Heather's Review:

I love a good meet-cute and I have to say that an officer of the law interrupting a rather loud audiobook sex scene is probably one of the top meet cutes I've read...  add in Ethan's grandmother and the adorable Russell and you have a winner... 

However, be warned, this book is not without angst, homophobia and racism, but the author deals with it in a way that brings all three bonus epilogues together to create a HEA as good as the meet-cute.

Audiobook Club was a fast and sweet read, with a good build up to their relationship and a strong plotline that kept me engaged.

Miki J's Review:

"..... will our love story have a happy ending?..."

I absolutely enjoyed this book.  It starts off with one of the best way to meet someone - I was cracking up with laughter !!  And from this meet-cute, a lovely friendship starts...... which soon becomes something more.  And while trying to maneuver a new relationship, other family issues and incidents arise and then heart-break.  This stand-alone is a great book - the 2 MC's have great chemistry & friendship and yes, the inevitable angst and amongst all this, family relationships & friendships and small town homophobic issues as well....brings the high drama.  I loved how the author wrote this story - full of empathy and understanding where needed....... it's also funny, sweet and very steamy !!  Absolutely a brilliant read !!
