Publisher's Summary

He's That Guy

You know, the hero in almost every romance novel. The super-rich, powerful CEO who is beyond sexy. Lives in a penthouse. Is wicked in bed. Has massive.... feet. Is kind of a jerk, but really he's not because he harbors some major secret that, once revealed, explains why he is the way he is - therefore completely redeeming himself and making all the listeners who hated to love him swoon....

Yeah. That one.  

Well, I found him.   

I'm a writer who has spent years searching for the perfect muse.  

Now that I know he exists, I have a mission.   

To make him fall in love with me.   

This should be easy. I mean, I have issues, but above all, I'm a great catch.   

Problem is, I did a stupid thing.  

And now he hates me.   

Unfortunately for him, he's my That Guy.   

And he's going to love me....

Whether he wants to or not.

THAT guy!

I think this book was a total riot! It had perhaps the most bizarre lead character I’ve ever ‘met’. Jake was, a swoon worthy jerk turned good guy. But Penelope was a total wild card.

That said, I laughed, rolled my eyes, guffawed, giggled and sighed my way through this.

Don’t that the two narrators lead you into thinking this is a dual POV telling. It’s NOT! And that was a disappointment. The second narrator did the epilogue. Period. But even that was well done!

Worth it? Oh yes, finger-snaps, finger guns, river dance!

Great book ! But!!! Make narration is only last chapter

I totally enjoyed this book but one reason I bought it is because I enjoy male and female narration! Plus love Aaron Shedlock narration. And for those listeners who like me want what they expect then BEWARE Aaron Shedlock is OMLY last chapter!
Great story lists of love, humor and a HEA. But was disappointed about narration! Only thing that kept it from being 5?across board!

Wish it was better- DNF

I don’t get where all the raving reviews are coming from. The plot line and summary had potential but it ended up being a ridiculous and unrealistic story. I realize these stories aren’t always meant to be realistic but it was just silly. I didn’t even finish it.

Aaron Shedlock is only in Epilogue

I am a huge Aaron Shedlock fan. I was disappointment when I didn’t hear his voice until the very last 5 min. A little warning would have been nice. It was a cute story, and very silly. Chuckled more than laughed but chuckled quite a bit. The heroin is crazy - in a good way. Selected this title because if the male narrator. I was not familiar with this author but I would read another.

This is a NO! Did not finish!

First time author for me. I read such high reviews that I finally decided to read it. I could not finish. It was so dumb and silly. What woman steals dog poop to fly to another city to poop bomb her friend’s ex-boyfriend’s doorstep? A possible high schooler but no grown adult over 18. Then she jumps into the first limousine pretending to be someone else all while carrying the bag of dog poop she was never able to avenge on behalf of her friend. As the chauffeur drives away not knowing she’s not the person he was picking up to drive her to the owner’s mansion, she decides this is a good writing opportunity for her to write about “that guy” the one who is a billionaire living in a mansion. Need I continue? Save yourself the time and pass on this one. I question those rating this 5 across the board. I only heard female narrator before I DNF at chapter 6. I never heard Aaron’s narration. This is just terribly silly, not comical. It is NOT credit worthy nor is it sale worthy.

IT'S ALL STEAMY SEX AND LOW SPEED DOG POOP CHASES!

If you are looking for an upbeat, laugh out loud, dirty (in more ways than one), sexy and swoon worthy book look no further! I know it's on the shorter side, which is why I almost didn't buy it, but I decided to give it a shot. I'm so glad I did.
I can only read the super dramatic books before I need a fun, witty, feel good. You know the type I mean. Books that are about the fiancee getting killed by an elephant on their honeymoon, him surviving, but the widow has moved on already the milkman. (Because SHOCKER the milk man and the wife paid the elephant to do it!🤯) You know the type.
I loved this because it had a lighter side of drama, and crazy, but it was a romcom at it's core. I really felt like I could connect with Charlotte. I found myself laughing out loud at certain parts, thinking "Yeah I've done that too."
The commentary is quick witted, and the narrators bring that together beautifully! Samantha Cook was born for the role. Aaron Shedlock is actually how I found the book in the first place. He is an amazing narrator!

Fun!!

Penelope is over-the-top crazy in a non-apologetic, down to earth, and very funny way. Over-the-top not always my favorite, but loved this fun story.

Listened to the audiobook:
So glad I listened - this story works great as an audiobook.
Slows slurred and unpleasant at 1x speed - sped up to 1.6+ and sounded more natural and really good. Don’t understand why the speed of the released audiobook is sooo slow.
Excellent narration for Penelope’s character - fit her perfectly!
Except for the epilogue the whole book is from Penelope’s viewpoint - story works well this way.

A 'First' of Ms Jones books for me

It took me a little while to get into this author's writing style and once accomplished, the book was enjoyable.
My difficulty was with the narration. I had anticipated dual narrators and found myself very disappointed that Aaron Sherlock only read the epilogue as Cam.....not at all as expected.!!
That said I found it interesting, witty and insightful .
P.S. Sadly some errors with immersion reading, chunks of narration missing and several pages out of sync.....

I LAUGHED SO MANY TIMES

Funny, so funny, boy did I laugh at some of the scenes in this book.

The whole book is like a p** take on romance tropes as the heroin sets out to find That guy, the kind of guy books are written about to help her with her own romance novel. Did she ever write it? I've not a clue but I enjoyed Penelope's journey to finding her perfect guy anyway.

I listened to this book in audio and the narrator did a brilliant job at bringing the characters to life although I found the recording too quiet even on full volume. I think the audio compliments the story better than if you were reading it.

Hilarious!

Jake and Penelope are fantastic characters in this well written read that’s absolutely hilarious. In fact it’s probably the funniest book I’ve ever read! I’m a newbie to Kim Jones’ words but that’s about to change. I highly recommend it !

Excellent, Funny and worth listening to.

Has all the romantic comedy characteristics. Penelope brings the fun factor to this book. Highly recommended and you won't be disappointed. Has the HEA a romance book should have.

Funny and enjoyable listen

This was genuinely funny. I often find books that claim to be funny are more eye roll inducing and try-hard slapstick, but I kept chuckling to myself and getting odd looks whilst listening to this.

It’s a bit lighter and doesn’t grab me by the heart as much as some, but still an enjoyable listen.

The male narrator is only for the epilogue, and instead it’s single point of view with the female narrator.

funny/weird

story a bit light on, character weird + whacky though so it was funny. didn't like the full on sex descriptions + lots of swearing which adds nothing to the characters/story really.

River Dancing :-)

Some very funny moments in this book that's for sure, looking forward to the next book in the series.
Narrator was OK, some parts excellent others just felt like it was being read aloud.
But enjoyable enough to make me giggle several times, LOL
FYI: Aaron isn't in the whole book, just the epilogue
