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….
Sweet Talk is the second audiobook by Cara Bastone that I’ve listened to. It’s really rare for me to listen to audiobooks back to back but I just couldn’t help myself with this series. I really enjoy the way they are written and acted out and I can’t get enough. I’ve definitely found my favourite type of audiobook which I know I said in my review of Call Me Maybe (read it here) but I really mean it.
I didn’t enjoy Sweet Talk as much as Call Me Maybe but it still had the same wonderful charm and intimacy that can only come from sitting in on a phone conversation for five hours. As with the first book in this series, the actors had amazing chemistry and they played their parts convincingly.
This was super predictable but honestly, that’s what I liked about it. At the moment I am really enjoying sweet romance books that have little to no “problems”. I love how easy this was to follow and I’m now (im)patiently awaiting the release of the fourth instalment. Even though I don’t know if there will be one.
I have also listened to Seatmate, the third instalment in the Love Lines series, so I’ll probably review that at some point in the future.
