Audio Review: WAIT WITH ME by Amy Daws

The audiobook we’ve all been waiting for is here! The Queen of rom-com, Erin Mallon, and the King of laid back, sexy heroes, Teddy Hamilton, have narrated this buzzworthy tire shop love story straight into our hearts.


 Buzzfeed to Babble to Scary Mommy and even network television—the social media viral story is LIVE on audio!

The story of romance writer Amy Daws’ relationship with a little tire shop in South Dakota is a refreshingly fun tale that ends in an auto shop romantic comedy that you have to hear!

Daws cast a dream team of narrators for this dirty hot love story that takes place in Boulder, Colorado. Narrated in dual points of view, hear Tire Depot come to life with these sweet soundwaves.

When romance novelist, Kate Smith, finds her long lost writing mojo in the customer waiting area of a tire store, the complimentary coffee isn’t the only things that’s hot. But sexy mechanic, Miles Hudson, is just up for a friendly test-drive of her new book idea.
At least, that was the agreement...

When romance novelist Kate Smith suddenly gets writer’s block as she's beginning the final installment of her international bestselling erotic Bed ‘n Breakfast series, she'll do pretty much anything to get her groove back.

Like sneak into a Tire Depot waiting room because her words flow there just like complimentary coffee—smooth, sweet, and scorchingly hot.

She manages to fly under the radar until the rugged and charming mechanic, Miles Hudson, notices the quirky redhead slinking in and out of the employees only entrance.

But she's way too intriguing to blow the whistle on.

Doing a test-drive of her new book idea sounds like a much better option.

Check out Wait With Me male narrator, Teddy Hamilton, as he teasingly narrates the female point of view! While Teddy’s female voice skills are undoubtably sexy, I think we’ll stick with the fabulous Erin Mallon for the retail version. ;) Listen to the hilarity here➔

 WAIT WITH ME is a hilarious and charming novel to both read and listen to. It certainly made it a lot more funny knowing that some of Kate’s story actually played out for the author in real life. I loved following along with her real life experience at TTT. It was an absolute hoot to read, and to be able to read and listen to the inspired story allowed me to feel close to Kate. This is a quick read and really easy to get into.

Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton were outstanding as usual. They both captured the essence of these characters so well. Their quirks, anger, passion, insecurities—I heard and felt it all. I always prefer dual narration, but they voiced the other’s sections fantastically that I didn’t even mind. These two narrators brought Miles and Kate to life on all points.

The story started off great as it built up really nicely. I was strongly engaged throughout the first half, but about midway, the pacing began to slow. It wasn't anything major, as I still thoroughly enjoyed it, but it did cause to me to take off a star for the story's rating. The big issue in this story for the characters, which I felt was a bit weak, was Kate’s secret. The truth that she was withholding was frustrating because of how ridiculous it was; So small that Miles’ overreaction to it was especially silly.

Nevertheless, the characters are pretty likable overall. Miles and Kate had great chemistry that had a smooth, steamy transition from strangers to friends to lovers. The banter was funny and cute, making their relationship lovely to read. I also really liked the friends of both who added depth and humor when necessary. I’d love to see those characters fleshed out more in their own books.
While I don’t think this story was as strong as it could’ve been or as some of the other Amy Daws books I’ve read, it’s still an awesome read that should be on your TBR list.
