Publisher's Summary

When disaster strikes, paradise calls.... 

As a published novelist, Lila Rose has been writing about fictional weddings all her life. But disaster strikes on her own big day when she hears her philandering fiancé, Daniel, whispering sweet nothings to someone else. With her dream day shattered, all Lila wants to do is run and hide, so she decides to fly solo on her own honeymoon.  

When Daniel arrives in the resort with his new squeeze, Lila strikes up a ‘showmance’ with hot new movie star Freddie Bianchi. Freddie is perfect for the part, and Lila soon relaxes into her leading lady role.  

But as truth starts to merge with fiction, could real love be in the air?  

A sizzling holiday romance, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Sophie Ranald’s Sorry Not Sorry.

Silly and idiotic, but the narration is great

I used to love this genre, but perhaps I've outgrown it. I'm not above enjoying a story of pure fluff now and then, and I gave an overall of 2 stars, because the narration is great, and I got a few laughs, but the story is ridiculous, the characters are annoying and shallow, and some gags are just overused. If I heard the words "porn-star martini" one more time, I wanted to gag. I actually skipped a few chapters at one point and don't feel like I missed anything.

Narrator one of my favorites. Weak story though

I’ve been going through Portia’s books this summer and I really like the narrator. She does most of these books. She wasn’t as good in this book simply because there’s a lot of male voice conversations with accents and she didn’t do it very well. Other than that a fun silly story, and a great listen.

Heart Happy Listen

This is the third book I’ve listened to by this author/narrator duo. I’d have to say overall that it’s my favorite one so far. (Wasn’t sure until the very end though.) If you like easy listens, and happy feel good stories… this is the one. Didn’t have to worry about the language and no awkward sex scenes to be heard by any listening ears around the house. Leaves it all to the imagination; and does a good job at that. No regrets on buying this on for sure. Enjoy.

Funny book.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the characters. They were not flat,but funny and interesting. I hated that Daniel was a cheater. I hated that Lila must have felt like she wasn't enough for Daniel. Instead of feeling that there was something wrong with him not her. Anyway, it was a good book with a predictable outcome. Which is what we usually hope for.

Liked

I enjoyed listening to this book and thought the romance was sweet, but I think it fell short without any intimate scenes. Make it feel kind of juvenile. But I guess that’s just because most books I listen to do have more intimate scenes and my expectation was different than it should have been.

It was a pretty OK story

The concept was good I felt like the heroine was a little too self deprecating

Love it!!!

So cute, so romantic. Love the narrator. One thing would have made it better… if Teddy Hamilton would’ve done the male voices. A sexy man voice always adds to a story. Story was definitely 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rom Com

A fun little Rom Com. Unfortunately it was silly and really dumb and dragged on & on with the lead characters insecurities & blindness to the obvious. Having said that if you need a light little romance with a happy ending, this should go the trick.

Drivel

I don’t normally leave reviews but this book was torturously cringe and dull, unless this is your type of thing I’d avoid like the plague.

RomCom at its best and briliant narration

I seriously think that Karen Cass is one of the best narrators on Audible! This was an alround brilliant and fun RomCom so 5 stars!
The story is told in such a way that I feel like I was there with them on the honeymoon and could easily picture everything that was happening. I smiled and I laughed and was thoroughly entertained for every minute of the story. The way the story starts it just pulls you right in. I loved the main character Lila right from the start and her best friend was just a hoot! I would both love and dread to have a friend like that!
