Audiobook Review: The Seat Filler. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Seat Filler by Sariah Wilson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The movie star and the dog groomer are one kiss away from the perfect love story. That’s the hiccup in a warm and witty romance by the bestselling author of Roommaid.

The meet-cute award goes to dog groomer Juliet Nolan. It’s one of Hollywood’s biggest nights when she volunteers as a seat filler and winds up next to movie heartthrob Noah freaking Douglas. Tongue tied and toes curling in her pink Converse, she pretends that she doesn’t have a clue who he is. It’s the only way to keep from swooning.


She’s pretty and unpretentious, loves his dog, and is not a worshipping fan. No way Noah’s giving up on her, even if his affectionate pursuit comes with a bump: Juliet has a pathological fear of kissing and the disappointments that follow. What odds does romance have without that momentous, stupendous, once-in-a-lifetime first smooch? Patient, empathetic, and carrying personal burdens of his own, Noah suggests a remedy: they rehearse.


The lessons begin. The guards come down. But there’s another hitch they weren’t betting on. As for that cue-the-orchestra-and-roll-credits happy ending? It might take more than practice to make it perfect.

The heroine: Juliet Nolan – Juliet recently started her own mobile dog grooming business and is helping out a friend by working as a “Seat Filler”at a major Hollywood awards show.

The Hero(es): Noah Douglas – An A-list movie star that is in the running for many of the major awards during the current award season. He has been an actor since he was a child and spent most of his years growing up on a TV show that was eerily similar to Saved by the Bell. Then he joined the military for a few years and returned and transitioned to doing movies. He was recently in a hugely popular trilogy called Duel of the Fae.

The Story: Juliet had a major crush on Noah throughout her teenage years, but when she meets him at the awards show, he is arrogant and condescending so she pretends not to know who Noah is. Noah is immediately intrigued by this girl in a fancy dress and pink converse high tops who is snarky and unimpressed by him.

I really enjoyed this story it was a clean romance with a lot of steam. Juliet had a very bad experience when she was young and has a very real fear of kissing. It is so bad that the few times she tried she has experienced panic attacks. So Noah offers to help Juliet with her problem and it leads to some pretty steamy kissing scenes.

The narrator is terrific. This is told by the heroine’s POV, so there is only a female narrator, but she has a great voice which fits Juliet perfectly, she has just the right amount of innocence and sass. She also did the male voice perfectly with a deep enough voice to make it sound great. This was a great book to listen to via audiobook!
