MINI AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: Sextuplet and the City by Misha Bell

It’s mini review week! I’m clearing out my review queue of all the books I can’t seem to convince myself to finish, for one reason or another. That doesn’t mean these are negative reviews, it simply means that something isn’t compelling me to keep reading at the moment. Maybe I’ll go back to them another day, maybe I won’t!

DNF Details:

How far did I get? 75 pages, which is 20% of the way into this nearly 400-page rom com. I skimmed ahead a little bit to see what was in store for me, and abandoned ship.

Why did I stop? It’s absurd, like absurd absurd. There is a fine line between hysterical and cringeworthy, and this went too far into the wrong side – for me. The ridiculousness might be exactly what some readers are looking for, because it certainly had me immersed and I was aghast in a horrified-laughter kind of way.

Was I enjoying it initially? I don’t even know how to answer that. I think so? This couple’s meet cute is… a lot… and I was definitely curious to see how things would play out. I love a good quirky rom com, and I could see myself enjoying others from this new-to-me author.

Would I finish this? I… don’t think so? You’d have to catch me in the right mood. I WOULD try another book by the author, and venture back into this if that one went smoother.

Who would I recommend this to? Rom com lovers willing to go on a wild ride. Anyone who needs a guaranteed laugh or at least a gasp or two. Maybe try the sample first and see how it goes, lol.

Audio Note:

The narrators are why I took a chance on this one – Erin Mallon and Joe Arden in dual narration. I love both narrators, so I jumped at the chance to try this. And they do an excellent job. Their voices work well for the upbeat vibe, though I preferred Mallon to Arden in this one. The story itself is wildly inappropriate from start to (I assume) finish, so I wouldn’t recommend this for work. It’s saucy and dirty and fun, which works well in audio. I can’t say that I recommend the story, but Mallon is great in this.

Blurb:

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Or does it?

Okay, let me explain. I broke into my crush’s dressing room to sniff his tights (not in a pervy way, I swear!) and got busted while, um… you get the idea. He then kind of, sort of blackmailed me into agreeing to a fake green card marriage with him. But hey, I’m not complaining.

Next thing I know, we’re on a flight to Vegas to make our friends and family think we had a crazy drunken night and, in the spur of the moment, tied the knot. Except… that’s exactly what happens. (Thanks a lot, vodka.)

Considering that he’s the most desirable ballet dancer in New York City and I’m a garage-dwelling secret blogger with a major sweet tooth, there’s no way this marriage could ever become real. Not to mention my totally crazy family and my aversion to every smell under the sun—except his.

All I can hope for is to not fall in love with my husband. That shouldn’t be too hard, right?
