Sarah’s Musings…

This surprisingly has been my first audiobook form Lauren Blakely, and I absolutely adored every moment. The narrators did an amazing job bringing these characters to life, and the dual narration is among my favorite.

Kyler is so adorably lost in the art of wooing women, and depends upon the most romantic tropes and movies to guide him. He is completely adorkable, and like most Blakely heroes, he has this uncanny ability to be charming and nerdy and sexy all at the same time! I was charmed by him.

Finley is a great heroine. More experienced than Kyler in the relationship area, she becomes his guide in courting women in exchange for some writer inspiration. I love the candidness she had with him and the fun they had together.

The chemistry between them is fantastic. I swear Blakely is the queen of banter. Each couple being unique and charming and lovable. I fall for each one.

This story is for the romance lover. The allusions to different movies and tropes are amazing! It brought her comedy to another level with Unzipped, and I found myself laughing out loud as I remember those moments and movies. Lauren Blakely doesn’t just throw them in for fun, though. She brings the references full circle.

I listened to this audiobook with a complete smile on my face. The narration, the story, and the overall experience is Rom-com gold.


ABOUT UNZIPPED:

Wanted: Dating coach to help hot nerd win back the woman of his dreams…

Picture this – I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I’m good and ready this time around. After all, if you’re going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops.

There’s only one little problem.

My college girlfriend isn’t the one who shows up when I play my “I’ll do anything to win you back” tune.

The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore. But she’ll help me win her back. Anything for romance, anything for a guy so willing to go big for love. And that’s what I want at first. Until I get to know my new “romance coach” and discover she’s funny, clever, and keeps me on my toes. And boy, do I ever need that.

Now I don’t want to win anyone else’s heart. I want the woman who’s been helping me all along.

Trouble is – she thinks I’m in love with someone else, and when we take off on a road trip, everything I think I know about women is about to be unzipped and turned inside out.

Excerpt:

I part my lips to speak, but I don’t know how to answer her. Or that. She rocks back and forth on her heels like she’s waiting for me to say something, and I realize I don’t know what I’m doing with her. I don’t understand her.

Is this her ruse to get me in bed? Calling me a boy toy?

Truth is, I wouldn’t mind getting naked with her because, hello, hot chick, but I need to keep my eye on the prize, so I’m going to have to cut this seduction strategy of hers off at the knees. “I want to level with you. I’m not interested in you that way.”

She blinks, coughs, and then laughs. For several seconds. Okay, more like half a minute. “I’m sorry. Say that again.” She gestures for me to keep going.

“I’m interested in Cassandra.”

She points at her chest. “And not me, right? I just want to make sure I understand. It’s a touch confusing, and I don’t want to miss a beat.”

I frown, totally confused now, because isn’t it self-evident? “That’s what I said.”

She shakes her head, amused. “Tom, I need you to know something.”

“Yes?”

She brings her hand to her chest. “I solemnly swear I have not once thought of you naked. I absolutely haven’t dirty-dreamed of you. And I’m definitely not harboring delusions about stripping you down to nothing and having my wild, wicked way with you.”

Wild, wicked way.

What does Finley think is wild and wicked?

My brain spins, crafting scenarios that involve her bent over the Batmobile, or daring me to climb the fire engine sculpture and test its strength for a wild, wicked screw. I have no fucking clue why my mind finds these images permissible for assembly, so I shove a hand roughly through my hair, trying to clear my head.

“And I’m not thinking of stripping you down to nothing and having my wild, wicked way with you either,” I say.

She dusts one hand against the other. “Good thing neither one of us is remotely attracted to the other.”

“Yeah, not at all,” I say flippantly. But wait? She’s not? “You’re not?” My voice ticks up. Why does her statement bother me?

“Did you want me to be remotely attracted to you?”
