My comments: I listened to the audible of this book, and I can't imagine reading it. This was sooo good! Wonderfully narrated. Since the basis of the protagonist's relationship in the story is by voice messaging, listening to the voice messages, read by the two wonderful narrators was superb. A great romance that skips a lot of the usual tropes and has a mind of its own. I loved it. A lot. Totally clean and feel good. One of my top five all-time romances. Yep, I'm going to do it, maybe it's just the mood I'm in, but I've got to give this one a five! A gentle, many, artistic male and a feisty, not-scared-of-much female, yippee! PS. - they didn't need to add the unnecessary epilogue...
Goodreads synopsis: Stay up all night with this funny, surprising romantic comedy from Audie Award-nominee Cara Bastone — scripted exclusively for audio!
It’s officially booty o’clock, I’m alone again in my kitchen choking down a slice of terrible chocolate cake…and I’m pretty sure I just got drunk texted by the man I have a ginormous crush on.
I’ve been daydreaming about Eliot Hoffman’s dimples for two months, and even though I’m sure this was a mistake on his end, it doesn’t mean it’s not an opportunity on mine. It’s the middle of the night, and I just wanna talk to him. So I text him back.
And then somehow we keep talking…ALL NIGHT. We’re both insomniacs, so talking all night soon turns into talking EVERY night.And talking about nothing soon turns into talking about something.
And here we go from in-depth analysis of reality TV to my relationship with my family to his amazing artwork. There’s no topic we don’t cover…
Except for who I really am. It’s the only question of his I won’t answer.
As my crush turns into an avalanche of Eliot, I think of him all the time now. But if he knew who I was, the entire house of cards we’ve built this relationship on would come toppling down. I want him to be mine, but we might never be more than just a sweet dream….

- There's another "essay", four pages long, later in the book entitled, "Museum." I love it! I think it's too long to type here, though. So glad I own the book, but I know I'd read it more if it were on my blog...Maybe I'll type it in another day.
- "The Traveling Onion" (found elsewhere on this blog and one of my favorite poems) is included in this collection. YAY!
