Call Me Maybe – Cara Bastone

Reviews by Yael Waknin


True love is on the line in this charming, laugh-out-loud rom-com—created specifically for the audio format!

Paint your toes. Pick up the wrong coffee and bagel order. Drive from Brooklyn to Jersey in traffic so slow you want to tear your hair out. It’s amazing all the useless things I can accomplish while on hold for three hours with customer service. Three hours when I should be getting the Date-in-a-Box website ready to launch at the big business expo in a few days. Except my shiny new website is glitching, and my inner rage-monster is ready to scorch some earth… when he finally picks up. Not the robot voice I expected but a real live human named Cal. He’s surprisingly helpful and really knows his stuff, even if he’s a little awkward…. in an adorable way.

And suddenly I’m flirting with him? And I think he’s flirting back.

And suddenly it’s been hours, and we’re still on the phone talking and ordering each other takeout while he trouble shoots my website.

And suddenly we’re exchanging numbers and sending texts and DMs every day, leaving voice mails (who even does that anymore?!).

And suddenly I’m wondering if it’s possible for two people fall in love at first talk.


Because I’m falling… hard.


Vera Hoffman has just days to make sure her website for her new Date-in-a-Box business launches. When the darn thing glitches, she calls her IT company and connects with Cal Kantola. An intense week of phone calls, DMs, voice messages, and texts ensue, and in between troubleshooting, these two start to develop feelings. But will their systems be compatible when they actually meet face-to-face?

I love Kal! I freaking love him!
What a wonderful audiobook!
Ok, I’ll go back a bit… I’ve listened to this audiobook and really didn’t know what was waiting for me because I didn’t know the author or the narrators but let me tell you this…
This is a beautiful story with such lovely characters.
Vera’s narrator, Luci Christan, is brilliant!
I really enjoyed listening to her! Her voice was so perfect for Vera! I
felt her and her feelings through her voice, which is exactly why I love audiobooks!
I smiled when she smiled and felt bad when she did. Her voice was so alive I thought I was watching a movie!
Kal’s narrator, Neil Hellegers, wow. Just wow!
The deep calm voice he had and how he showed his feelings in his voice was magical.
When he was “just” a voice through the phone or when we heard his thoughts, he was so sweet and caring and… I really don’t know how to keep describing it. He was amazing. Kal was AMAZING!
I loved that the author gave interesting background stories to the characters, I loved the “weird” coincidences, and basically, I loved EVERYTHING!
Highly recommended!
