Sweet Talk – Cara Bastone

Reviews by Yael Waknin


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….

My review

After listening to the first audio in this series, Call Me Maybe, and loving it, I’m glad I continued to this one!

This story was absolutely wonderful!

Eliot’s narrator, Chris Brinkley, was really amazing!

I haven’t listened to his narration before, and I really loved the way his voice really felt genuine whenever he was upset or happy.

Listening to JD’s narrator, Lidia Dornet, was also a first time for me and she was also truly wonderful!

Their phone conversations were so believable and felt so real that they added such an important layer to the story.

Audiobooks like these are the reason I love audiobooks so much! When I can hear the tremor in their voices or when I hear the happiness or any other emotion. And when you have such a wonderful narrator, it’s the perfect experience!

I love that the author added some mysterious elements other than their anonymity. I loved the coincidences that were in the previous book as well as in this book.

If there were another book to this series, I would definitely listen!
