An Ali Audiobook Review: Groomzilla by Tere Michaels and Nick J. Russo Narrator

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
groomzilla-audioWhen drama threatens to ruin a romance on a reality show, only a true friend can save a groomzilla’s wedding.

Daniel Green, an event planner with a neat, quiet, orderly life, reluctantly agrees to plan the wedding of his childhood friend Ander, an outrageous fashion designer soon to marry a wealthy entertainment lawyer named Rafe. To complicate matters, the happy couple have agreed to have their wedding made into a reality show—something that practical Daniel isn’t sold on.

Daniel is neither a romantic nor a wedding planner, but he’s the only person in the world who can manage Ander. Distracting him from his mission is Owen Grainger, a too-handsome-to-be-true producer whose quiet charm pulls Daniel into his orbit.

When the stress of the show triggers bad behavior from Ander, co-producer Victor Pierce decides it’s the key to a ratings bonanza, and he begins to undermine Ander and Rafe’s relationship to create more drama. Daniel is determined to protect his friend and his own reputation, but when he finds himself falling hard for Owen, there’s much more at stake than ratings.
I don’t know how I missed this book when it came out and I wish I would have read it sooner.  What a gem this was.  It was both funny and adorably romantic.  Daniel and Owen had the greatest chemistry together.  They shared some really touching and emotional moments, a few that even made my eyes tear up.  Their smexy scenes on the other hand burned up the pages.  I had a few issues with Ander’s behavior and if he had been my friend I would have been furious at some of the stuff he did.  That part of the story though wrapped itself up in to a very beautiful and emotional moment also and I once again got teary-eyed.
This book was narrated by Nick J. Russo.  I’ve listened to a lot of his narrations and have enjoyed them all but I think this may be one of his best.  He did a great job on all of the voices and his narration of Owen in particular was great.
I definitely recommend this book.  I really enjoyed everything about it.  I highly recommend the audio version.  It’s short, about 5 hours, and worth every minute.
Cover by Anna Sikorska:  I like the cover but don’t love it.  The models on the cover do represent the way the characters are described in the book.  It’s nice enough but doesn’t really stand out to me.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
