BY CARA BASTONE
Paint your toes. Pick up the wrong coffee and bagel order. Drive from Brooklyn to Jersey in traffic so slow you want to tear your hair out. It’s amazing all the useless things I can accomplish while on hold for three hours with customer service. Three hours when I should be getting the Date-in-a-Box website ready to launch at the big business expo in a few days. Except my shiny new website is glitching, and my inner rage-monster is ready to scorch some earth… when he finally picks up. Not the robot voice I expected but a real live human named Cal. He’s surprisingly helpful and really knows his stuff, even if he’s a little awkward…. in an adorable way.
And suddenly I’m flirting with him? And I think he’s flirting back.
And suddenly it’s been hours, and we’re still on the phone talking and ordering each other takeout while he trouble shoots my website.
And suddenly we’re exchanging numbers and sending texts and DMs every day, leaving voice mails (who even does that anymore?!).
And suddenly I’m wondering if it’s possible for two people fall in love at first talk.
Because I’m falling… hard.
Vera Hoffman has just days to make sure her website for her new Date-in-a-Box business launches. When the darn thing glitches, she calls her IT company and connects with Cal Kantola. An intense week of phone calls, DMs, voice messages, and texts ensue, and in between troubleshooting, these two start to develop feelings. But will their systems be compatible when they actually meet face-to-face?
This was definitely the most entertaining and funny audiobook I’ve ever listened to. You can call it a graphic audiobook because the narrators actually interact with one another and you have background noises. The story is a light and sweet romcom that made me smile the entire time because I identify myself so much with Vera and my husband is so like Cal. I actually showed him the story and he enjoyed it very much too.
WHAT I LIKED:
– Vera and Call are amazing! Vera is this super nice girl that interacts with everyone she meets as if she already knew them for a while. Call is more reserved but it’s so funny to see his interactions with Vera.
– The plot is very funny from the beginning. I couldn’t stop listening til I finished the entire audiobook.
– The narrators did a fantastic job! I became a fan of Luci Christian and Neil Hellegers. Definitely have to listen to more audiobooks narrated by them.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE:
Pretty-please-with-love-on-top listen to this wonderful audiobook! If you’re a romcom fan like then I guarantee you you’ll love this! Even my husband, who doesn’t listen to audiobooks nor like romcom, listened to this TWICE! I would love to see this audiobook more out there in everyone’s posts.
