Summary

I was not looking for a date. Another questionable relationship was the last thing I needed. Because trust me, they were all questionable.

But through a series of unfortunate events involving my cat and
his poor decision-making skills, I agreed to a set-up.

Except...the set-up is with the governor.

I am not political girlfriend material. For one, I’m a little bit crazy. For two, I have secrets.

But I also have a big crush on the governor. One little date can’t hurt, right? Spoiler: It can.

My big crush is going to end in big trouble.

Banterific

Jana Aston gives good banter and oh my Erin Mallon brings it to life. The way she pronounced Guv'nor had me snort laughing out loud ever time. When I ready the story in my head I had East End cockney, Erin's was better. Audrey is quite hilarious, totally quirky and lovely. Warren is a bit of a grump but hot and weirdly talented in home maintenance.
Their meet cute was adorably awkward.
Her self appointed intern, Michael, is a hoot. Warren's mum is entirely in her own world sorting things to be the way she feels they should be. You'll love Gary, he plays an integral part in the story.
I loved this story. It was fun and super enjoyable. Erin's performance was, as always, fab.

Love this quirky heroine

Audrey Gibson is everything I love in a fun, quirky heroine. She is stumbling along not realizing what a real rock star she is, but Governor Warren Russo sees more than Audrey’s beautifully awkward and slightly loony exterior.

“He stares at me for a long moment, studying me as if he finds me fascinating, or crazy. Hard to tell. Finally he speaks. “Don’t fall in love with me. I’m not in the mood.”

This story had me snort-laughing on one page and totally swooning on another. I was reminded just how much I’ve missed this author’s brand of quirky humor.

“It’s a reminder that sometimes your worst moments can lead to opportunities you never expected. And that starting over can lead you to something even better.”

I switched between ebook and audiobook. I enjoyed both but narrator Erin Mallon really brought Audrey’s uniqueness to life on the audiobook.

Fantastic book

I really enjoyed this story. It made me laugh out loud, which is rare for me with books, and I really liked the main characters and how their relationship developed. Jana Aston somehow makes her books feel more authentic than other authors (who often end up writing shallow fluffy books). Great narration, too. Can’t wait for more books from this author.

I loved it!

The Next Mrs Russo is an irresistible, laugh out loud funny, sweet, and steamy romance. Audrey is adorable, crazy, and eccentric, whilst Governor Russo is the opposite, he’s serious, standoffish, and brooding, but they’re just perfect for each other. Erin Mallon is a great narrator and it’s an absolute must read/listen. I loved it!

5 The Unexpected Blind Date Stars!!

There’s something about how Erin Mallon brings life to a book that has me enchanted from beginning to end. I love how she can narrate both the Hero and Heroine making me fall in love even more with a book!!

I absolutely loved everything about this newest book by Ms. Aston. It’s filled with quirky humor and characters that had me laughing from beginning to end. Audrey is a girl that is trying to make her vintage clothing dreams come true and one day changes everything when a potential client invites her to meet her son who needs a date… Little did Audrey know her son was also the Governor that she is currently crushing
on!!

Warren Russo is the man of a lot of women’s dreams and she may or may not be stalking him on social media which creates all sorts of emotions when she’s introduced to him face to face…

“The thing is, my crush on the governor is of the normal variety. Meaning I haven’t stalked him on the internet. Much. Just regular run-of-the-mill socially acceptable kind of stalking.”

The inner conversations Audrey has with herself provided many snort inducing laughs and when you add in her “employee” Miller and her cat Gary and well the setup is perfect for a romance that I think Ms. Aston is the queen of!

I had to admit I found Warren Russo a little standoffish in the beginning… but seeing as he’s the governor I guess he can’t be anything but professional when he’s around his constituents… until he meets Audrey and well, let’s just say their repartee is on point!! I loved how Audrey is herself and it takes this man by surprise.

What’s also surprising to him is the attraction he feels towards this beautiful woman. She makes him think outside the political box that he’s usually in because of her quirkiness and frankness in her conversations and actions and he likes it…even if he won’t admit it at first!!
This book reads fabulously and once I sat down to enjoy the words that Ms. Aston has written I was hooked and couldn’t stop until I finished the book. This book is exactly what I needed right now and I highly encourage you to one-click this one and be ready to laugh, swoon and everything in between!!

Meeting the her crush

Audrey is positively delightful with her slightly stalkerish tendencies against the governor. I mean look at him. His Instagram page is filled with pictures that would fill your fantasies for hours and make your heart absolutely melt when he is with his dog Duke. Her soft heart for all animals is inspiring! She is absolutely brilliant as she creates works of fashionable art and I laughed through the entire book! Warren will definitely surprise you with his romantic heart. An absolute must read that you will not be able to put down! The narrator is absolutely delightful and brings Audrey and Warren to life.

OMG Loved this book!!!

So funny and great sexy times! The humor kept me laughing throughout the whole book - and that’s saying something for me! The story progressed at a good pace and I did not feel like to book was too long or too rushed.

I loved this book and I cannot recommend it enough! I quickly went to find more by this author as she is new to me! And, of course, Erin Mallon was her amazing self with the narration!

Oh dear….

Generally love Jane Aston books! Many previous are 4-5 stars for me, but this one is nowhere near par for her work. I wish I had paid attention to the negative reviews. The narration was good - she did the absolute best she could with the material. The story, though, is no bueno. All internal thought from h, and though she’s 27, her thoughts and actions were those of a 13 year old. In fact, the deepest relationship in the book is that between the h and her teenage “assistant.” Didn’t get to know the H at all, and no real development or growth of a relationship. No banter, no warmth, no spark, no anticipation.

Struggled to finish, and only did because I’m stubborn. Bumped it to two stars because of Erin Mallon’s narration, and hoping this is just a blip for Ms. Aston.

LIGHT AND VERY ENJOYABLE

Firstly, I have to say well done to Erin Mallon because this talented narrator really delivered a five star performance and she brought the fun, the characters and the warmth out of this addictive love story.. bravo girl.

Secondly, what a wonderful and amusing slow-build as aloof Governor Warren can’t help but get tempted by, and ends up falling hopelessly in love with, ditsy, quirky, awkward fashion designer Audrey. This talented lovable woman upcycles vintage clothing by redesigning them into something fabulous and it’s one of her customers who will play Cupid. It’s Warren’s mother who arranges their first blind date because she feels they’d be perfect for each other.. and I have to agree, they are a perfect fit.. even with their ‘fake’ first few events. And even with all the insecurities running through Audrey’s mind about the skeleton in her closet that could ruin everything. The interactions and lighthearted banter between Audrey and her young opinionated assistant Miller enriched the story too.

Worth a credit? Yes I loved this upbeat entertaining easy-going lite-angst romance told from Audrey’s POV.

Hot Politics

Why did I wait so long to dive into this? Jana is brilliant and this one was pure gold. Audrey was awkward enough to be lovable and Miller was the perfect assistant. I can’t say enough how perfect everything is. Stop reading this review and jump into this book!!

Cute read

Overall this was a cute listen. I felt it was a bit rushed in places, and I wish it would have been both points of view.
But Erin Mallon did a great job, the story was cute and unique and I loved how the cat had a little play in the mix.
Hope to read/listen to more of Jana Aston's books soon :)
