The heroine: J.D. – grew up in New York with her father and brother. She boxes at the local gym, rides a motorcycle and has a bunch of Tattoos. She take care of her father who is sick and recently had to move into assisted living or a nursing home. She has a crush on Elliot and has for a while.
The Hero(es): Elliot – a handsome, intelligent man who is clean cut, keeps his apartment in order and sees himself as a pretty big nerd. He is very nice, treats people with respect and loves his younger sister.
The Story: Elliot is suffering from insomnia and late one night when he tries to text his sister to see if she is still up, he accidentally sends the text to J.D. She answers back since she also doesn’t sleep much and from there they start texting back and forth. Elliot has a few learning disabilities and doesn’t like to text much so he changes things up and calls J.D. He doesn’t know who she is since he had her in his phone contacts as a bunch of unrelated characters. Though he calls her J.D. because those characters were in there.
This was probably the best audiobook I have listened to thus far. It was dual narration done by Chris Brinkley and Lidia Dornet and they couldn’t have been more perfect for these two characters. J.D. is wicked cool and has a great New York accent and Elliot is self depreciating, intelligent and a gentleman.
The majority of the book was them talking on the phone and so the audiobook format was absolutely perfect for it. It was much more like acting than just reading the narration. Also there were sound effects like when they were walking outside you could hear outside background noises or when they were inside and someone knocked on the door or something like that you could hear it.
This book was all romance and two people falling for each other while each learned more about the other, including things they never told anyone else. It wasn’t steamy at all and I didn’t mind whatsoever. I think that would have actually wrecked the vibe. I really liked both of these characters and I loved listening in on their phone conversations.
