AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: Just One Of the Guys by Kristan Higgins

Author: Kristan Higgins
Narrator: Xe Sands

Being one of the guys isn't all it's cracked up to be...

So when journalist Chastity O'Neill returns to her hometown, she decides it's time to start working on some of those feminine wiles. Two tiny problems: #1—she's five feet eleven inches of rock-solid girl power, and #2—she's cursed with four alpha male older brothers.

While doing a story on local heroes, she meets a hunky doctor and things start to look up. Now there's only one problem: Trevor Meade, her first love and the one man she's never quite gotten over—although he seems to have gotten over her just fine.

Yet the more time she spends with Dr. Perfect, the better Trevor looks. But even with the in-your-face competition, the irresistible Trevor just can't seem to see Chastity as anything more than just one of the guys....

 Thank you to Recorded Books for providing a copy for review. 

Audio: The narrator for this one did an okay job with Chastity, but all of the men sounded like they belonged on a beach in California ready to catch some waves, dude.  

Story: Kristan Higgins is my go-to author when I want an adult romance with a dose of humor, a side of feels, and a HEA. I read this a few years ago, remembered enjoying it, and was excited to "reread" it on audio. I still like Chastity and Trevor together, but apparently, "how" they get to that point had completely slipped my mind. Cheating doesn't start with a kiss or a one night stand. If your every waking thought is consumed by someone other than the person you are in a committed relationship with, you are cheating.  

As with her other books, Just One of the Guys has all of the elements I enjoy in a KH book: witty banter, great story telling, and an entertaining supporting cast, but for me, the romance was lacking.
