Summary

From bestselling author Jewel E. Ann comes a hilarious secret lovers story that redefines the meaning of friendship. 

Shep’s found the female version of himself…and he thinks she’s perfect—perfectly unavailable. 

Everyone loves Shep, the charismatic employee at Scottsdale’s newest pet store. He has shared custody of his two dogs with his annoying ex-wife and a smile that can disarm most women. 

Except Dr. Sophie Ryan. 

What starts out as a disastrous first meeting, involving a coffee catastrophe and mistaken flirting, turns into an unconventional friendship. 

Fake phone sex. 

Dog park dates. 

And eighteen holes of golf. 

The problem? Sophie’s taken herself out of the dating pool for a mysterious reason, imprisoning Shep in the friend zone for eternity.

As their competitive personalities hit a boiling point, the gloves come off and so do their clothes. When Sophie’s “real” life threatens their relationship, can Shep let go of his past to chase the one that might get away?

Jewel at her best. A 10 Star read

I listened to the Audio and loved the narration of both characters. I was engaged from beginning to end. You know when a story has gripped you when you feel you want to meet the characters to tell them where they are going wrong. Sophie is a beautiful person who likes to help others, men have taken advantage of her good nature leaving her to questioning her ability to determine the good from the bad. Her ex boyfriend and now irritating room mate, refuses to leave her home adding further to Sophie’s already complicated situation. Shep is recently divorced and coming to terms with bachelor life. He is settled despite his ex trying to get him to sign up to dating apps. Shep’s life changes when Sophie walks into his pet shop with her dog and for both of them something is ignited. Shep knows what he wants. Sophie is nervous about starting a new relationship. She has too many obstacles to navigate and it is not the right time for her. Plus she does not want what she perceive could be another disastrous relationship. She struggles with what to do for the best. Not sure what to do or whether to trust her instincts, Sophie decides being friends is the way to be with Shep. But that decision brings other problems. I was pulled willingly along with each twist and turn and each roller coaster of emotions with this story. I know I will listen to this audio several hundred times more.

Charming, touching, and laughter

Exactly what I had hoped! Charming, touching and full of unexpected laughter that had me laughing out loud! Jewel writes about flawed characters in real relatable ways that come to life and touch the readers heart. She did it again with this book! It is beautiful performed and I loved it!

Funny and sweet

I’m not a huge rom-com fan, but I really enjoyed this audiobook. The book was witty and adorable, and I laughed out loud a few times. When I first started listening I was worried the narration would be too much, but I actually think it added to the story.
I’m actually really surprised the audiobook is averaging 4.3 stars right now. I give it 5!

Good Story- voice hard to listen to

I really like this book. there were points of laugh out loud and points of blushing. The hardest thing about getting through this book was the narration. unfortunately the woman's voice sounded like Siri or Alexa and was just very robotic. Once I got into the story I was able to ignore it but it was hard to get into

cute but not my favorite

I've had this book on my wishlist awhile with high hopes. The story was cute, but lacked depth and I was a bit disappointed. Also, the female narrator was very monotone and robotic. Didn't really care for it either.

Great book, narration… not so muc

The female narrator’s voice was robotic and monotone. The male’s voice was just fine. I’m glad I’d read the book before I listened to it, otherwise I wouldn’t have thought it was as good as I knew it was.
