Publisher's Summary

Beautifully tender and unforgettably funny, prepare to fall in love with this modern-day nod to a classic romantic comedy.   

Ever since their chance encounter as seatmates on the plane ride from hell, Harry “Harrison” Fields and Harry “Henry” Lee have had a love-hate relationship. But every time their paths have crossed over the years, they’ve grown to like each other more and more, even developing an unlikely friendship.  

Now, Harrison is a fun-loving music teacher who wears his heart on his sleeve, and Henry is a hard-driving business man who’s still striving to get out of his father’s shadow. 

As they go through life’s inevitable heartaches and losses, their friendship only deepens. Sure, there’s always been a simmering attraction between them, but nothing worth threatening their friendship over...until one of them takes things too far. But when a valuable friendship hangs in the balance, is a chance at romance worth the price?

Editor's Pick

Love doesn’t care if you believe in it
This new twist on a legendary rom-com classic by debut author Sydney Smyth sees Harrison and Henry, aka Harry and Harry, bumping into each other over the years. At first their encounters don’t necessarily end well, but nevertheless there’s something special left between them. With a dual narration from fan-favorite Teddy Hamilton and new-favorite Malcom Young, there’s something special in the audio performance as well. The slow fall of our two main characters is a ride I’ll sign up for any day, but now with these two accomplished narrators in the picture, listening to When Harry Met Harry has been a sweet summer song to my ears.

Just not for me I guess...

I was so looking forward to this book but only minutes into it, I knew I was going to struggle to finish it. I am just not a fan of this type of third person narrative, If this had been written in first, I probably would have loved the story. In the first hour I bet there were over 100 "Harry" said & "Harrison" said and I struggle to not notice it every time. Also sadly the weird "tinkling music" between chapters was not for me, I found it pulled me right out of the story every time.
For me the best thing about this audiobook was Teddy Hamilton, if not for him, I probably wouldn't have made it past the first few chapters.

A romantic comedy that forgot the comedy.

This is a color-by-numbers trope fest that has not one single legitimate laugh, despite lifting its plot in whole from one of the greatest romantic comedies of all time. No wit. No sparkling banter. No chemistry between the main characters, who are little more than cyphers. Shallow and, frankly... insulting. Save your hard earned credit and get something by KJ Charles, TJ Klune or Lily Morton.

Disappointing

I listened to this story because I really love Teddy Hamilton. He and Malcolm do a terrific job of narration. I liked both the main characters but was frustrated with the course of their romance. It takes 3/4 of the book for them to get together and immediately after, Henry backs off because of fear?
Insecurity? A non loving relationship with his father? I just didn’t get why he was so reluctant to be with Harrison. This “I want you but I can’t have you” goes in for months in the story! Henry’s dysfunctional relationship with his father went completely unresolved. All in all I spent too much time in angst and too little time enjoying resolution. Do NOT get this book if you enjoy specific description of romantic/sexual activity. Sex between Harrison and Henry is glossed over. The reader is informed that Harrison had difficulty walking following sex. Disappointing.

No romance, no comedy and serious production issue

As others here have said, this m/m retelling of one of the greatest Rom Coms ever is lacking in both "rom" and "com". I lilked the friendship the author created between the two Harrys, but the serious lack of any chemistry made it hard to believe they were actually attracted to each other, let alone falling in love.

Teddy Hamilton is a favourite narrator and always reliable; Malcolm Young wasn't bad (although there were some inconsistencies between their interpretations of some characters), but the production quality of his sections was TERRIBLE. It sounds like he was recording in a bathroom; the sound is tinny and treble-y and i can't understand how it got past post-production. Given this was a third person narration, I have no idea why two narrators were used anyway.

Ultimately, this was a disappointment. The story started well but started to fizzle out around the half way point and honestly, I got bored. :(

Also - PLEASE STOP putting music into audiobooks! It's bad enough when you get it at the beginning and the end, but between chapters?! Nope. It drove me nuts.

Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan would approve

This sweet, sometimes heartbreaking, story inspired by When Harry Met Sally would make Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan smile. It’s a slow burn that does justice to the phrase so often used in proposals and wedding vows, “I fell in love with my best friend, my soulmate.”

For anyone who has not heard these narrators before, you’ll enjoy their performance. Teddy Hamilton is one of my favorites, and I think they did a great job with the characters.

Enjoyed this SO much!

Wonderful narration!
Malcolm Young was new to me, and it initially took me a moment to get used to his sound following Teddy’s...but I really liked him. I’ve heard quite a few books with Teddy in the past, but this was one of his best. He was so freaking good in this...and the end of chapter 20 should put him up for some sort of award. I’ve gone back to listen to that segment 3x just to experience the full range of emotion. It brought me to tears on my first listen. I really loved the story too! New to me author who I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for.

Just Wow

What a great story. A wonderful slow burn that really gets you attached to all the characters. It's very well developed, well narrated, well written. I thoroughly loved it. I enjoy books that have a nice long plot, and a slow burn where you really get into the book. This is exactly that. I can't believe it's on Audible Escape, I've had a hard time finding good books on here, especially in the LGBT group. But this is great if you're looking for this kind of book.

LOVED IT

I picked this because I was desperate for a good nice enemies to friends to lovers romance. This book fits the bill perfectly.
Teddy Hamilton is great as always, I look forward to hearing more of Malcolm Young's work.

In fact if you like this book, I highly recommend "Date Me, Bryson Keller" by Kevin van Whyte. It's a lovely high-school afr MM romance.

Great story, terrible audio quality

I loved the story, it was a lively slow build. Both narrators did a fantastic job. However, there were some issues with really poor editing, and the sound quality of one of the narrators was poor. Shame, as they were brilliant.

I adored this story, it was sappy and brilliant. It made me want to laugh and cry. And yes it was a lot of stereotypes, it was so beautifully sweet and wonderful that I can forget that!

This book helped me dream again.

I loved this. Everything about it. Every nod to when Harry met Sally, every nod to the various parts of queer culture. I especially loved the narration. From the first words uttered by Harrison and Henry on that plane, I was with them, in their world, immersed in the air of their thoughts and feelings, drenched in their romantic possibilities. I am gonna give it a month then listen again. It’s made me love my husband even more.

Nice

The recording is a bit dodgy, the two leads are initially annoying af, and some of the plot devices defy reality, but... I ended up really into it.

Fine

It's fine. Nothing special. Not great and not terrible. If you have nothing else to read, go for it. It will keep you entertained, but it won't surprise you or thrill you in any way.

It was Okay

Rom-com lovers will like it. I think it would be better as a film.
Personally I hated everytime one of the actors did a "girl voice", always cringe.

Light and fluffy

Two guys, Harrison and Henry, meet on a long flight, and happen to meet each other again years down the line. They forge a friendship but there is also a lot of denial of their feelings especially by Henry . Listen to how they work things out and get their hea/ hfn. With regards to the narration it was fine, but a fair few times I found the sound very hollow. However it was engaging.

A satisfying conclusion

The first couple of chapters were a bit of a bore as the author wrote about very mundane daily tasks in unnecessary detail. I'm glad that we eventually got to see the full emotions of the main characters.

Three stars overall because none of the characters are charming enough to leave an impression.

A sweet rom-com which could have been punchier!

Harry “Harrison” Fields and Harry “Henry” Lee are mutually unimpressed with each other when they meet on an uncomfortable international flight - they utterly disagree on what love is. Years later they meet in San Francisco where both have located and a beautiful, comfortable friendship forms. Supporting each other through relationship breakups and career achievements, the only people oblivious to their love for each other are themselves. I thought this would be a enemies-to-lovers story but really it’s an enemies-to-friends-to-eventually-finally-stop-wasting-time-lovers. I loved the friendship and their interactions but I felt the story petered out towards the end as my frustration levels peaked - why did it take Henry so long to get onboard? There was good chemistry but no on-page heat between Harrison and Henry so the story lacked punch. Teddy Hamilton (as Harrison) and Malcolm Young (as Henry) narrated extremely well, but why not one of the excellent Asian narrators around to voice Singaporean Henry?
