Start your review of Call Me Maybe
The Audible Original team is killing it. I'm consistently impressed by the high production quality and narrator talent. It feels like listening to a movie or a full-cast radio production, and I really hope there are more romance-centric Audible Originals planned for the future.

Cara Bastone is becoming a reliable read! Her voice is super funny and sweet. In Call Me Maybe, a frazzled Vera calls customer service of a startup tech company after her website malfunctions. She's presenting her Date-in

the smile was on my face all the time while I was listening to this...
Audible outdid themselves with the production...

It was clean and I still loved it...

I started and finished Call Me Maybe in half a day. Honestly, when I started, I was a little ... OH, MY GOODNESS, WHAT HAVE I GOT MYSELF INTO??? There was all this background noise and the narrators' voices were fading in and out, seemingly shouting at me, and REALLY emotional. It took me a couple of minutes to work out that I was experiencing a performance. This was one of the only times I have experienced a full-on acting audiobook form. So

This is an Audible Original and you can tell it was written for an audio performance. The audiocapes are fantastic and the production magnifies that core very well. Indeed, this is a great example of the difference it can make when a story is written with the audio production in mind so kudos to Bastone for pulling it together.

Unfortunately, I'm taking kudos away for the rote romance. Kal and Vera are cute and their flirting is really endearing. But there's only one real conflict so Bastone has
Very cute, and had me cracking up a lot. Loved Kal and Vera!

The audio was lovely. Both Luci Christian and Neil Hellegers did a fantastic job narrating. I listened at 1.3x-1.5x

It's official. Cara Bastone is one of my favorite 2020 romance debuts. There's something wickedly special about her voice and I'm hooked. Call Me Maybe, an Audible Original title, was one of the most entertaining and charming audiobooks I've had the chance to listen to. I was sporting a very silly grin while I was listening to it and I can't wait for all of you to pick it up and relish this sweet story.

Call Me Maybe is a love story between Vera, who is on a deadline to get her website runni

Amazing!! this book is short but sooo good I've never heard an audiobook like this with sound effects and everything it was amazing, did I said it was amazing? it was. I laugh so hard the very first second of the book and I kept laughing like that all the way through.

Vera is the typical funny beautiful girl whose parents don't trust her abilities to succeed in anything she has ever done, she always messes in something no matter what that is why she always felt like her parents never really trust

*4.5 Stars!*

Not me thinking about reactivating my blog in order to pretend that there is something wrong so I have a reason to call up tech support and somehow the person troubleshooting my issue ends up being my soulmate...


Anyways, shoutout to my girl Nick for never leading my astray with book recommendations. Check out her review here .

I don’t even listen to audiobooks because I don’t have the attention span for them, but Call Me Maybe totally sucked me in and I flew through this book

This was just plain ADORABLE!

I loved this little rom-com! It just felt like *something* was missing. Whatevs— still adorable as hell.

Super duper cute, and (BONUS!) it's free on audible for members right now. This is a super short audio book that reads more like an old-fashioned radio show than an actual book. Vera calls a customer service hotline when she needs someone to help her to get her website to function before an important event coming up in a few days. After sitting on hold for forever (been there!) she finally gets connected to Cal. In helping her through her website issues Cal and Vera strike up multiple interestin ...more
You know it’s a good book when my cheeks literally hurt because I grinned so hard while listening. This was a delight. The production was amazing. The characters were rich and the story unique and engaging. I literally couldn’t love it more. But speaking of more... can we get an extended epilogue or something? I need more Vera and Cal.
This is awesome! Quite possibly one of the best performed audiobooks I’ve ever listened to. The voice actors fit the characters very well and they make the book truly come alive. Excellent production. Fantastic writing. Wonderfully engaging story. I smiled nearly all the way through the entire book.

Wow! This audio production was AMAZING!!!

Vera is making her dream of working for herself come true. She has just one hangup left. Her website is in SHAMBLES!!! When she calls the customer service line for her website host, she isn't expecting the fun and flirty Cal on the other end of the line. He helps make this stressful situation easier to navigate, and helps her want to believe in love again. Maybe she will take her brother up on the offer of setting her up with Fred.

Cal wasn't expecting to

I loved this book!
It was just the right amount of sassy, witty, and funny. It also had its serious moments but I loved the character interaction the most.
If you think about it the characters connection is so technical throughout most of the book you almost forget they are not actually face to face. The narrators make it so effortless to listen to.
Vera and Cal are kismet, they connect on another level and I loved that even when they weren’t sure of each other they still “knew” each other. It w

It’s a nice surprise when you don’t expect anything from the book but it sweeps you clean off your feet. Kudos to Audible Original team for stepping up the game!

This is incredibly cute and sweet Rom-com package with enough drama and a lot of Humor packed with a neat bow on the top! It’s perfect length if you are on a rom-com kick, I listened to it one go❤️
The performance was good and the sound effects were well done.

The story seemed to take much longer than it was. I even sped it up to 1.6 and it still seemed to last a long time.

It was a cute story albeit pretty dull at times. This was my first experience with this author. I'd definitely check out something else by her going forward.

If i was rating this one solemny on the story it would be more a 4 stars.
Don't get me wrong, i loved the story, the charecters were very likeble and their interactions were really funny and enticing.
But this audiobook was absolute perfection! The whole setting, the background sounds and the narrators made listening to this book a wonderful experience!
So my overall rating is 4.75 stars!

did i listen to this again because i'm fucking nuts. "YES" (in tears)
i've spent the entirety of this audiobook ACTUALLY crying and smiling ear to ear.
there were some plot points i didn't care for.... but i digress. i'm crying so i'm gonna say that if you want something light and sweet and cute you should definitely check this out.

This was such a superrrrr cute story! I just love how it made me smile with the sweet ending. Great audio production and narration, too.

Cara Bastone has been super highly recommended by my romance reader friends, so I was a bit afraid that her books might not work for me, which would be disappointing for me and not a comment on other people obviously. But OMG Call Me Maybe is so completely outstanding and funny and charming, so that was not a problem.

Short romances are tricky to pull off (and this is just under 6 hours on audio, which is definitely on the short side), because it's hard to convincingly make a couple both fall and
i don't think i have listened to a romance audiobook (at the exception of the audiobook of pretty face) and it was the loveliest thing to do in the morning while getting ready and made breakfast a very enjoyable time! i loved that the story was divided in smaller chapter and that the overall length was just six hours. for this reason, i would highly recommend it as a first audiobook to listen to (or as another audiobook if you are an audiobook lover as the quality of the production really impres ...more

What a delightful story! I listened to this as I was sewing up a dress, and it passed the time wonderfully. It was also a break from an epic fantasy story I was reading, and just the thing I needed to lighten things up.

I wish all audiobook romances were done this way. If they were, they'd take over the market completely! Luci Christian was absolutely perfect for the character of Vera. And the same for Neil Hellegers - talk about fabulous casting. Publishers get this wrong so much of the time, s

This was on the best of 2020 Romance list for Audible. Going by the title, I knew it was going to be a corny story. Well... it's definitely a rom-com but not the kind that I think is amazing. It was ok.
