Audiobook Review: Instant Gratification (Always Satisfied, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Instant Gratification by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Snagging a date? Not a problem. But one that meets my special requirements?

As the premier best-man-for hire in all of Manhattan, I promise discretion, so when I need a plus one for a couple of “I dos,” she needs to be A-Plus in reliability. Fortunately, I have a brilliant solution in asking my best friend’s sister to go on my arm. Truly is my good friend, too, and I trust her completely.

Just look how discreet she’s been about the time we spent the night together. But, it was only once, and it was months ago. We’ve been the souls of restraint ever since. I’m sure we can make it through these weddings without banging each other in the limo. Probably. 

Plus, she needs my help with a business proposal. A little I’ll-scratch-your-back-you-scratch-mine doesn’t have to lead to the bedroom, right?

Good thing we know our way around the friend zone. The treacherous, torturous all-too-easy to slide out of friend zone…

INSTANT GRATIFICATION is a sexy, standalone romantic comedy!

The Hero: Jason – a British man living in New York. Jason has more than a few irons in the fire. He is a journalist, he has a blog, and he works as a groomsman for hire on the weekends, just about anything he can to make an extra buck.

The heroine(s): Truly – the owner of a kitsch bar in New York and wants to open another, she is married to her work but often hangs out with her brothers best friend, who is now her friend as well.

The Story: Truly and Jason hang out together and six months ago had a drunken night which they say never should happen again. Truly once had a best friend that fell for her brother, and when things didn’t work out, she dropped Truly as a friend. Since both she and her brother are good friends with Jason, she doesn’t want the same thing to happen.

Though the more time they spend together the more they remember that night they had together and want to repeat it. It doesn’t help that Jason has a filthy mind, likes to make suggestive remarks and loves to flirt with Truly.

I absolutely loved the narration which was done by a full cast. Shane East has a deep voice and sexy British accent so was perfect for Jason, and I loved how he spoke his thoughts in a lower voice when he was with other characters. Andi Arndt was great as usual and the rest of the cast included a lot of names that are big in romance narration like Jason Clarke, Sebastian York and Zachary Webber. The only thing missing was background noises like I have heard in a few full cast narrations. Though I still give it five mic’s for narration.
