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.

RA is amazing.. Lori Prince is perfect

I have got to know more about Robin's life. Her humor is outstanding and storytelling is spectacular. I've never been disappointed.

All Robin Alexander books should be read by Lori Prince. She captures each character distinctly and her comic timing is brilliant.

Delightful

Typical Robin Alexander/Lori Prince experience. I find the book to be relaxing and amusing. If you have anxiety Robin Alexander is a great choice for distraction. Calming. Lori Prince is an excellent narrator. She does the voices so you can tell who is speaking. Inflection adds to the story. Pleasant voice and I choose books with her. Like searching just for the narrator.

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.
