Summary

Ride along on this endearing road-trip rom-com from Audie Award nominee Cara Bastone - scripted exclusively for audio!

I have exactly 5 hours and 10 minutes to get from Boston to New York City or the professional opportunity of a lifetime disappears. My only travel option? The second to last seat on a discount bus. Across from the bathroom. Wearing last night’s clothes (don’t ask). All worth it if I can make it in time.

My nerves almost get the best of me, but then there he is, sitting down in the seat next to me. Tall. Friendly smile. Bright indigo streak in his brown hair. The perfect distraction. Turns out he’s on his way to reconnect with an old flame. The one who got away. We can both make it on time - just barely - if the traffic keeps flowing.

Playing road-trip games, avoiding calls from his mother, and effortless conversation keeps us from clockwatching...until the bus breaks down. And my seatmate turns into my copilot as we wrangle a ride in a car three decades old. And hit all the traffic. And oh, Lord, the detours. And somehow I end up careening cross-town on the handlebars of a Citi Bike carrying a box of kittens. (Yeah, don’t ask.)

He’s my hero every step of the way...and I might be falling for him. But what happens when we reach our final destination? Could my seatmate really be my soul mate?

Might be the best Cara Bastone yet

It's no secret that Cara Bastone is the reason I listen to audiobooks; I've loved every single one I've listened to so far but this is my new favourite.

Seatmate is such a genius story and I am in love with the characters and their romance. I never would have even contemplated a romance set on a bus and then everything else that happened in the story was the icing on the cake.

The performances were exquisite and I just adored this so so much. I can't wait for my next audiobook by Cara.

My go-to favourite

I listen to Seatmate sooooo much. The actor’s voices are great. Very natural, not over acted and you are immersed in their story. Very romantic and sweet, it was a shot in the dark, but I’m so glad I did!!!!

A Seat-cute? Funny and Charming

I chose this because I love Amanda Ronconi - and wasn’t disappointed by her, the writing or the loveable Sam. Could the narrators and Cara (the author) team up again??

A feel good story

I was a little sceptical of this story but had listened to the others thought I'd give it ago. It was a lovely listen with a cute storyline
