How do I know I am interested in a book? I start talking to the book, well the phone actually, and I begin asking the characters questions or laughing out loud. This time, Lauren Blakely’s “Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend” had me talking and laughing at the Prologue. The Prologue had my attention!!!

There are not enough words to convey how much I adore this story as it had me in all the feels – love, laughter, attitude, moments of ‘what happens next’ and did I mention the love? Ms. Blakely spun a tale as old as time – falling for my best friend – into something fresh, new and makes my heart soar. Love, humor, spectacular kissing scenes and a turn back look that completely caught my breath.

Nothing can make an “LB Book” come to life as it does when in audiobook format. These top-notch narrators make the story go from beautiful to fully immersive and emotional. Lead characters Summer played by Andi Arndt and Oliver voiced by Shane East are remarkable. Seriously, what is there left to say about these two fantastic people? Their comradery as professionals is evident as the story’s best friends with wit and banter they bring to life (including the must-listen blooper reel!) Absolutely one of my favorite performances from this duo!

Summer’s heart on her sleeve was only evident because Ms. Ardnt’s fantastic interpretation of the character along with the perfect comedic timing of the bantered lines. Oh Oliver! His musings over the dislike for social media had me smirking when lines were delivered by Mr. East. But the full-on radiant smiles arrived when I heard the whispered lines of love and longing Oliver carried for Summer. Epic swooning ensued.

However, we don’t just get #Shandi – no, we get extra audio loving from the voice of Joe Arden reprising his role of Noah (Birthday Suit) and some new character we keep hearing about, Fitz, whom I’m sure will be a delight when he leads a story soon! And then there is the showstopper – the absolute spotlight must go to Kit Swan as the “voices of the internet”. I howled with laughter at all the variations given in her performance. Stellar work from an amazing cast!!!
