Publisher's Summary

When Shawna Haydel was 16 years old, she dropped Ashton Guidry's name into a potion that would supposedly make Ashton fall in love with her. She knew it was silly, but she clung to one irrational thread of hope their friend Patty's concoction would grant her heart's desire. Shawna's hopes were dashed when Ashton packed up her things and went away to college completely unaware of Shawna's feelings.

Twenty-three years after Patty's potion was brewed, Ashton returns to her hometown. She finds time has changed a lot, including Shawna. Ashton has done quite a bit of changing, too, and sees Shawna in a whole new light. Perhaps Patty's potion was potent after all.

In this romantic comedy, Robin Alexander has cooked up a humorous tale about enduring love and friendship.

Contains mature themes.

I know I'm going to listen to this again!

I ended up laughing so hard that I had tears running down my face. I would watch the hell out of this if it became a movie or a tv show. The vacuum scene had me laughing like an idiot. I'm so glad I wasn't driving at that part.

The love story is a bit rushed but you still feel like it's a natural progression. A couple of times the names ended up flipped and it's a bit hard to get used to the POV changing in the middle of a chapter. But those things are minor. Plus the narration is some of the best I've come across.


Spend the credit. It's well worth it.


Clamps!

A laugh out loud winner

I wish I had crazy wonderful friends and family like this. Characters and relationships that left my cheeks aching from smiling so long and hard. Thank you!

I snort laughed so much

My gosh I already loved Robins books this is my top favorite. I laughed so much I snorted multiple times. I loved the relationship between the main characters and the background characters. I was actually sad when it was over. If you want a cute funny romance where friends become lovers this is it.

Perfect pairing

Robin & Lori are like a fine wine & a perfectly paired cheese. Only funnier.
Just when I started to think this book was good, but not as funny as Robin usually is, Lou started yelling sex terms at Grandma, Jet walked in on Ash & Shawna & I started giggling like a fool alone in my car.
And nobody can perform a side-splittingly funny sex scene like Lori. Five stars!

Genuinely laugh out loud funny

This is sweet, but not saccharine. Reality without any drudgery. Honest. My only complaint is that I went through this in only a couple of days.

The narrator did an excellent job.

More comedic gold from RA

Robin Alexander has done it again with this rom com. She had me laughing out loud with some of the scenes where Jet walks in and her resulting reactions. The snack bar from the pantry was hilarious.

Shawna's grandma is a little extreme with her homophobia; often outrightly offensive. Perhaps it is an exaggerated representation of some demographic in the south? Not being from the US, I just took it as fictional characterisation. There seemed to be subtle hints that she could be having some form of dementia which is probably why she speaks without any filters.

Wonderful work by Lori Prince with some of the voices. Some new ones compared to other books narrated by her. Kudos to Lori for managing the scene about 11 minutes from the end. Overall a pleasant, entertaining light read.

Fantastic, though with 1 major issue

As the title said, this was a fantastic book, really funny though there is one major issue. The grandma, a side character, is an abuser and is emotionally abusive towards her family. I have started to see more books where this sort of story point is the case and it's concerning that people, theoretically, would put up with abuse of this scale and not even realise it is abuse.
