Listening Length: 5 hours and 42 minutes
It’s officially booty o’clock, I’m alone again in my kitchen choking down a slice of terrible chocolate cake…and I’m pretty sure I just got drunk texted by the man I have a ginormous crush on.
I’ve been daydreaming about Eliot Hoffman’s dimples for two months, and even though I’m sure this was a mistake on his end, it doesn’t mean it’s not an opportunity on mine. It’s the middle of the night, and I just wanna talk to him. So I text him back.
And then somehow we keep talking…ALL NIGHT. We’re both insomniacs, so talking all night soon turns into talking EVERY night.
And talking about nothing soon turns into talking about something.
And here we go from in-depth analysis of reality TV to my relationship with my family to his amazing artwork. There’s no topic we don’t cover…
Except for who I really am. It’s the only question of his I won’t answer.
As my crush turns into an avalanche of Eliot, I think of him all the time now. But if he knew who I was, the entire house of cards we’ve built this relationship on would come toppling down. I want him to be mine, but we might never be more than just a sweet dream….
Call Me Maybe is my favourite audiobook of all time so when Sweet Talk got released I immediately had to buy it.
I didn’t love it as much as Call Me Maybe but it was still a very good audiobook.
This follows Eliot’s story, Vera’s brother, who accidentally voice texts a strange woman late one night. He saved her number with a bunch of letters so he calls her J.D. (the last letters he entered on her contact). He really can’t remember who she is or why he saved her number. As for the woman, Eliot is her crush so she can’t help but continue talking to him. They’re conversations turn into friendship and then turn into a flirty and deep connection. Their voice texts turn into phone calls and they spend a lot of time talking to each other and Eliot really wants to know who she is (and us too!). But J.D. fears he’ll be disappointed when he truly discovers who she is.
She is an amazing character! She has a great style and goes to the boxing gym! I related deeply to her because she reminded me of the high school version of me. J.D. took up her father’s job because he’s terminally ill with cancer. She has a very close relationship with him.
This is a really good audiobook to listen to. It’s only 5 hours long so you can just put your headphones on and listen to it while doing chores for example. It’s a light read, very easy to listen to. There are many spoilers for Call Me Maybe on this audiobook (now on ebook also apparently) so I would advise you to listen/ read Call Me Maybe first because it’s that good! I haven’t read the ebooks but the audiobooks are really good because they’re graphic audiobooks. You can hear the surrounding sounds and the male and female narrators interact with each other.
