they have time This book made me smile and laugh non stop It was super cute I thought the narrators did a great job with this audio They were high energy and did an amazing job voicing Tom and Finley I also loved that even though Tom started out wanting his ex back, wanting Finely just came naturally It never felt like she was second best to me And Finely had her show writing going on but using Tom as inspiration was never hidden I loved how open these two were with one another If you re looking for a light and entertaining romance, check out Unzipped If you are an audio book listener, I highly recommend it in this format It was fantastic flag 47 likesLike see review View 2 comments Nov 09, 2018 Astrid The Bookish Sweet Tooth rated it really liked it Shelves arc Lauren Blakely s

such a sweet heroine Burned by a man because she was his rebound she doesn t want to make the same mistake again so falling in love with Tom seems to be a supremely stupid ideabut soon she s charmed by him.I loved the honesty with which they treated one another They had so much fun just talking and conversing Tom s naughty streak was hilarious and often times made their conversation drift into sexual insinuations which weren t cheesy at all because they were done in good fun These two were so quirky, endearing and entertaining, the book felt almost a little too short.Joe Arden and Andi Arndt did a wonderful job bringing these two characters to life, I actually felt that they had as much fun narrating as I had listening I loved that they actually recorded alternate narration for the text messages.If you are in need of a light, funny, quick romance fix you won t be disappointed with Unzipped It was charming and sweet with a good dose of sexual tension and steam flag 35 likesLike

unreasonable demand of her boss at the network I loved how they are helping each other and came to respect and appreciate their respective strengths.I didn t love so much the contrived backgrounds or the strain the story was put under to have them experience all the romance tropes they were talking about I mean, it was cute Maybe Particularly when very minor spoiler view spoiler Kyler hired a couple people to fulfill some of the tropes on their little road trip hide spoiler But it also bent the story a bit and I appreciated that a good deal less.So I m leaving this with a solid three stars It s a good time but it s good that it is so short because any longer and it would have worn thin.A note about Steamy There are a couple explicit sex scenes putting this in the middle of my steam tolerance for such a short work They re NA adventurous so I didn t buy them any better than I did some of the other elements, so this is a part of the underwhelm that lead to the three star final flag

intriguing was that Unzipped was being released as an Audible original, co narrated by Andi Arndt and Joe Arden As a frequent reviewer of the author s books, I don t often get to experience her books in audiobook format, so getting to listen to Unzipped was immensely enjoyable, especially in the hands of two such evocative narrators.As a rom com junkie, I ve read my fair share of memorable meet cutes but the bungled, Say Anything inspired first meeting between Finley and Kyler, who shall henceforth be known as Tom just go with it , is one for the books After his grand gesture to win back his college girlfriend results in him serenading the wrong woman, Tom is forced to regroup, this time with the help of an inquisitive stranger Working as a writer for her own TV comedy show, Finley s brain is wired to see the humor in every situation She analyzes the world around her, constantly looking for writing material, and inspiration strikes in the form of the sexy bespectacled nerd who s adorably clueless when it comes to women Neither expects their harmless flirtation to lead to a mutual attraction that has them dancing toward something deliciously dangerous.Together, Tom and Finley have this indefinable, magnetic connection that s evident in their effortless rapport They interweave movie quotes into dialogue and flirt shamelessly, bonding over their idiosyncrasies and reveling in each other s quirks Their similarities are embraced, but so are their differences, which was both charming and compelling While Tom initially sets out to reunite with a former flame, his plans change upon meeting a woman who challenges him, excites him, and surprises him at every turn In turn, Tom gives Finley hope that real life romance can be just as swoon worthy as the fictional love stories of film and television.Packed with flirtatious banter and lighthearted humor, Unzipped is a rom com that s cleverly written, refreshingly self aware, and just plain entertaining As narrators,

intelligent man with a unique and interesting career He is a planner and feels he is ready for love and commitment But he is also a bit of a clueless male who has been surrounded by brothers who also give not so great advice So he sets off on an adventure to revisit the girl he last felt strongly forhis college girlfriend.She is a television comedy writer and in need of some fast inspiration for her series She was not expecting this strange man to show up in her life, but he certainly helps inspire her She is chatty, funny, quirky, and curious She loves a good story and he is full of them.When they team up to work on their separate goals, they develop a fun rapport and mutual support system, and can quote with the best of them But the closer they get, the confusing it gets As they are helping each other, they are starting to have to avoid and deny some things that might be changing They ve both got fears and insecurities from their pasts that affect how they see relationships But sometimes life flips the script These two are teaching each other They are growing and changing They are learning from their mistakes, building self worth, and trying to be better people But they are dancing around attraction and temptation, while having fun, sharing common interests, and pushing each other s buttons Reality can slap you in the face when you least expect it And sometimes plans do not always go asplanned These two are totally adorkable Hanging with them was totally fun They are quirky and imperfectly perfect together I loved their adventures, their humor, and banter And anyone who loves 80 s movies knows how important grand gestures are and that you have to get it just right I enjoyed the tropes and plot ideas and how they were integrated into a new unexpected rom

her to the song they made love to Which is weird and creepy in his own way but it turns out that she doesn t exactly live there any Nope, she s renting that place out now and he s serenading the wrong person Plus, she doesn t like the song choice either.Kyler Tom the other name will make sense if you read it thinks romance is just like it is in the movies He s very naive and it made me laugh I doubt most people would want to be serenaded with a boombox nowadays because of neighbors or the song choice Then there s Finley, who was wrongly serenaded, and she was just a delight She made me laugh so much plus she s a writer and basically living the dream Throughout the book, Finley is trying to help Kyler Tom out with his love life Trying to get him to realize what he did wrong was hilarious I also found it a bit creepy how they found so much about Cass, the ex, so quickly They knew where she worked, lived, and basically everything else Probably her bathroom schedule Well, as you all know they started to fall for each other along the way Finley definitely made him a better person I honestly laughed so much throughout this book especially when Kyler was daydreaming about

dreams, is a comedy writer of her own TV show on the verge of being cancelled She is in desperate need of inspiration when the poorly singing, bumbling Kyler is dropped right on her lawn After hearing his plan win his former girlfriend s heart back, she knows she needs to help this guy.Finley and Kyler were both so quirky and very different, but I think that s what drew them to each other They naturally challenged each other, and I think that was what initially drew them to each other and sparked the attraction between them Their flirty banter was quick and hilarious, and despite their differences, this couple had fantastic chemistry Finley wasn t exactly keen to take another spin on the I m still in love with my ex rollercoaster ride that is written all over Kyler, but she does want the inspiration he s giving her as long as it doesn t inspire anything other than plot ideas It doesn t take Kyler long to realize that he s chasing the wrong girl, though, and he flips his focus on Finley I loved all of his movie quoting, and his whole sweet and seductive routine was utterly swoon worthy Unzipped by Lauren Blakely was lighthearted, sexy and amusing, and it was exactly what I was looking to read when I started it With Blakely s clever writing and a wholly entertaining storyline, Unzipped was a witty, fun and charming romance that kept me smiling the whole way through Five
