After four years living the single life, it’s decided that I, London Stuart, am back on the market. I’m not even mad when my cousins and best friends put my name down for the speed-dating sessions. In fact, I’m actually a little excited about it.

But then one of my dates turns out to be my six-year-old son’s irresistibly sexy soccer coach―his irresistibly sexy British socc

Single mom and a chance at love.

London isn’t serious about dating. Her speed dating is usually to appease someone else. That is until her sons hot coach stumbles onto the scene. Can London get it right this time and find a good guy or is he just passing through?

I haven’t read many single mom books. I usually go for the hot dads. This was a nice change and I enjoyed the story.

This was a fun romance! I was really surprised by just how much I enjoyed listening to this book. London and Oliver were wonderful characters and the narrators did an amazing job in bringing this story to life. Once I started listening, I didn’t want to stop and couldn’t wait to see this pair work things out. This was a very entertaining story!

This is the second book in The Introvert’s Guide series and even though the characters may

What an absolutely adorable book.

Emma Hart always packs in the cuteness, and this book was no exception. In fact, it was even cuter than I anticipated. God, I just love children.

The only reason for the docked star is that it was just so short. Yes, all Emma Hart books are (more like novellas really), but I like a little more time to get to know the characters.

I definitely enjoyed this book and look forward to reading even more Emma Hart.

And I'm out.

Honestly this felt half finished. It was pretty riddled with typos and it read like the first half of a romance novel. There was very little conflict to resolve...the HEA falls flat

Oliver and London have a beautiful love story. London's world is focused on her son. Making sure he has everything he could possibly need. Even though she co-parents he son still takes priority. She doesn't have time to date and doesn't want to run the risk of getting attached if it isn't going to be a long term relationship.

When Oliver (her son's coach) catches her interest she doesn't think that there can be anything be there. However, Oliver has a different idea and their relationship blosso

This book was adorable!
It was a quick read with amazing main guy, cool kid and very amazing mom. If was light and fun and full of love.
I wish we got a little more in the end but it still mades me smile a lot.
Amy [Book Addict Reviews]
London is a single mom to Leo, an adorable six year old boy, and she is also being forced into some interesting speed dating sessions. Oliver is Leo’s soccer coach and really the just seems to go to be true. The man is caring, handsome, patient and most of all he loves kids…there really should be something wrong with him and I don’t blame London for instantly crushing on him.

I loved the chemistry between London and Oliver from the start. I loved the bond that Oliver also formed with Leo. There

Hmmm… I literally don’t have anything to say about this short book. I didn’t even get any hot moments, so I feel like I was cheated on.

I loved every moment of The Introvert's Guide to Speed Dating, book 2 in Emma Hart’s The Introvert's Guide series, which Avery Reid and Will Watt narrate. It's an adorably sweet, humorous, and sexy slow-burn romance that also happens to include another of my favorite tropes – friends-to-lovers – and does an excellent job of exploring that journey along with the difficulty of being a modern, single, working mom. Single mom, London Stuarts’ best friends and cousins, decide that it's time for her t ...more
***5 Stars***

I’m always excited to head back to White Peak and hang out with the crazy crew there and I was definitely not disappointed with this last stint there. It was definitely more on the sweet side, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching Oliver and Landon become more to each other than just friends.

I loved London and Oliver. London is pretty kick ass. She’s sweet, snarky, blunt and a great mom. Oliver is just an all around good guy. Charming, hard working and loves what he does. Their jour

ARC kindly received for an honest review.

I enjoy this world of White Peak and all its crazy characters. London and Oliver are both really likeable characters, and I enjoyed going along for the ride with them. There are some appearances from familiar faces of course, as we've been getting to know their friend group as the books are released.

The really great thing about this is that there is no huge angst or any big obstacle. There are issues of course, but this is just a really easy an

5 star review The Introverts Guide To Speed Dating (The Introvert’s Guide #2) by Emma Hart

The Introverts Guide To Speed Dating was a fun story that was entertaining with characters whose story you cannot help but become invested in. I fell hard and fast for single mum London Stuart and Oliver Hayes and don’t get me started on little Leo, such an adorable little boy.

London has decided that it’s time to get back into the dating scene but imagine her shock when one of her dates turns out to be her

I would give this book a 3.5. While I liked London and Oliver as individuals, they fell a little flat as a couple. It felt like there was never really any spark between them. I did enjoy Oliver’s interactions with London’s young son, Leo. He steps into the father role easily, and I really expected Leo’s real father to put up more of a fight about that but he doesn’t. I will say I probably enjoyed Oliver and Leo's relationship more than I did London and Oliver's.

This book was missing a lot of th

This was a quick and fun read. I will warn the romance lovers that even though most of Emma Hart's books have at least one steamy scene this book does not which is unfortunate. It also wasn't as funny as the past books have been. It's because of these two things that I gave it three stars. If you are looking for a nice cozy romance with a slightly snarky heroine and a British hero then this is the book for you. It has all of our favorite characters from the past books and the epilogue sets up ni ...more

3.5 stars rounding up to 4. I was confused with the title as there is no discussion about any of the characters being introverts. If anything it should be titled a Single Mom’s guide to dating, as that is what is explored the most in this novel. London and Ollie made for a very cute love story and I love the realistic discussions of what it’s like for a parent to date and how they still need to protect and prioritize their child when doing so. Although I overall enjoyed it, the dialogue went che ...more

I love this series however this ones wasn't my favourite. I typically don't like kids in romance however Leo wasn't bad..they didn't make him annoying, or to grown for his age. Which is good,

It took way to long for Oliver and London to finally get together. I mean it's a short book and Its still felt dragged out. I understand that London is a mom and she has to be cautious and sure before getting into a relationship but I wish they had just jumped in and seen where it went early.

A great book and

3.5 stars. This was a well-written story with compelling characters.
The storyline is about a single mom who is hesitant to start dating again because she feels as though her son should come first. She humors her family and friends by speed dating.
The title of this book doesn't really match the story. She does speed date but it is such a small part of the story that it felt a bit gimmicky.
I enjoyed seeing her come around to try dating her son's soccer coach who is a British hottie. It is a slow-b

The Introvert's Guide to Speed Dating is a fun and entertaining addition to the Introvert's Guide series. Filled with the signature humor we've come to know and love from author Emma Hart this book will leave you laughing one minute and swooning the next.

London and Oliver were adorable together. I loved their chemistry and adored the way that Oliver was with London's son. Oliver came into London's life at just the right moment and proved that there are still some nice guys out there.

I am always ready to get back to this series and this group of characters that I can't help but love.
Hart never fails to have me laughing out loud all while making me fall in love with her quirky fun characters. London and Oliver had me hooked from the start.
This one is a quick fun read, with almost no conflict or angst. I read it in one sitting.
I love this series and can't wait to see what Hart brings us next!

I had the opportunity to listen to The Introvert’s Guide to Speed Dating by Emma Hart early and it was such a fun listen. It had me smiling throughout the entire time I was listening. London is ready to start dating, right? So, she tries speed dating and yet the one person that really stands out is her son’s soccer coach, Oliver. I loved their interactions and how he was with her son. The story is a quick, fun, and charming and the narrators, Avery Reid and Will Watt, really brought this story t ...more

Wow super disappointing installment of an otherwise terrific series from a great author. The romance was ehhhh, chemistry the same but the reason I gave this one star??? NO SEXY TIMES!!!! they barely kissed. What the heck is up with that? Skip this one and read the rest.

Where’s the steam?

I was cool with the slow burn but then there was no sexy payoff at the end! I enjoyed the story and liked that characters but I’m pissed for the heroine! Is she not allowed a sex life because she’s a mom? Who do you think is reading this book?

While all of the books in this series are definitely quick reads because I can barely put them down, this one seemed a little bit quicker. There was definitely drama between the two, but not a ton, and I kind of missed the snarkiness of some of the other stories. We also didn’t get as much time with the grandparents in this one, so that could be part of what I was missing as well. But I really did like our two characters in this one, especially London’s relationship with her son. Another thing I ...more

The Introverts Guide To Speed Dating is book #2 in The Introvert’s Guide series by Emma Hart. London and Oliver are characters that made this story really memorable and fun. Theirs was a slowburn romance. London is a single mum + she has a demanding career. Oliver is her son Leo's football coach. They have red-hot chemistry and keep finding themselves thrown together, either by accident or on purpose. There's some twists that occur. You can tell they wanna but there’s a child in the picture.

This wasn't love for me...It was a cute premise for a book, but things just did not pan out for me. It didn't really make me laugh - and I considered not finishing it - but I really was hoping it would get better.

I think the main basis for my issues with the book boiled down to believability and complaining (and not just complaints from me as a reader). This book is set in a small town in Montana - a former professional baseball player has created a large sports complex that truly has everythin

I know that the minute I picked up book three in this series that I was going to be reading things backwards, plus in a way book three did have some spoilers in for this book, but honestly, I wasn’t too worried because I just love reading anything by Emma Hart and this time, I was not disappointed.
I still loved getting to experience London’s journey because it had been a while since she’d been back home and now, she’s attempting to find her footing again even though in a way it’s like she never

I have been reading my way through the Introvert series - of which this is the second - and the preceding Bookworm series. Each book does stand alone and is about a separate couple although Emma Hart’s cameo game is strong and most previous couples do reappear - although not in the cutesy, loving way I like to see my prior couples. Never mind…

I hadn’t read the blurb in a while when I started reading this book so I’d forgotten who London’s hero was…and when he appeared on the page I still wasn’t
