  • Wonderful Story & Listen🎧 A Heart-Warming Delight!

    What I'm Looking Boston Classics, Book 1 By: Karen Grey Narrated by: Joe Arden, Karen White I enjoyed this book immensely, Karen Grey is a gifted author, she created a uniquely told story with interesting storylines that grabbed my attention right from the start and held it captive straight to the end. The characters are well developed, they are realistic and easy to relate to in a nostalgic way, remembering what it was like for woman in the workforce back in the day when it was mostly a man world for executive positions. Kate Bishop is good at what she does, working with numbers in the investment firm and providing a thorough market analysis. She never felt like she was part of the team, but with hopes of advancing she decides to go out for a drink with her co-workers. Will Talbot, actor, fight director and bartender likes what he sees in Kate, he makes her the perfect drink and even woos her with his quotes from Shakespeare’s plays. He invites her to an outing which she winds up going to and enjoying. I loved the chemistry between these two, they are both hesitant about getting involved but you can not deny that type of chemistry for long. They are worlds apart when it comes to careers and goals in life, can they they survive the differences or will it tear them apart. I loved how everything plays out in this book, the story is plotted out nicely and there is never a dull moment with plenty of drama, humor, low angst, lots of emotional and heartfelt moments and a wonderful romance. I listened to the audiobook edition, Joe Arden and Karen White are talented narrators and voice artists. They were perfectly casted to bring these characters and their story to life. They do an amazing job portraying them, humanizing them, giving each their own voice and personality. You could hear how much heart they put into their work as they capture the characters emotions and project them in to their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this awesome listen🎧

  • Even better in audio

    This is my first book by Karen Grey and I’m hooked. A fabulous mix of endearing and realistic characters, humor, a little bit of guarded hearts, and if I’m being honest I did tear up at one point. Grey brings the reader completely into 1987 in a way that the time period almost becomes a secondary character while not overwhelming the cast or story in any way. I do admit to spending quite a bit of time Googling pics of JFK Jr. who is Will’s look-a-like. Or vice versa. Will is an actor/bartender who is trying desperately not to sell out and ends up falling for Kate the finance analyst. On paper, or in a spreadsheet, these two don’t have much in common but we get to know them separately and together and this couple definitely adds up. What I especially love about this is that while there are several steamy scenes between Will & Kate, there is also a lot of talking, dating, and fun. I couldn’t help but be invested in their HEA. This is fairly low angst, yet compelling. A fine line that Grey artfully balances. I found myself equally in love with the charming and fascinating secondary characters. While none stand out as the obvious choice for the next book in the series, I’m voting for the enigma that is “Hot Steve”. A side note, check out the author's blog for a post about how Grey and her book designer/illustrator came up with the fabulous cover for the book. I found it really fascinating as I’m enjoying this new trend of graphic-based covers. While I enjoyed reading this – the narration was even more fun. Joe Arden & Karen White do a fantastic job with Will & Kate. The accents for the secondary characters were a nice touch.

  • Entertaining, fun read

    This is the first book I have read by this author and I’m really surprised she hasn’t crossed my radar before now. This is Will Talbot and Kate Bishop’s story and it’s a fun entertaining read that will appeal to a wide range of audiences. Kate works in finance and her position is normally a male role so when work gets to much she heads to a local bar looking for someone from the firm who will have her back but that’s where she meets Will a staving actor working as a barman to makes ends meet. Will is not into yuppies ( if you lived through the 80‘s you will know this expression) but something draws him to the beautiful Kate.... Kate is not looking for romance but this funny Shakespeare quoting barman has her wanting more .... A fun entertaining read that will make you smile and have you swooning, great start to the new Boston Classics series.

  • Take a magical trip to the 1980's!

    Kate Bishop and Will Talbot are the perfect match. Ha! Not even close. Kate is an uptight, math-loving numbers whiz. Will is an actor, and not one of those frivolous guys that does movies, television or commercials. Will is a serious guy when it comes to his craft – it’s Shakespeare, Shakespeare, and Shakespeare. So how do their paths even cross? He’s a part-time bartender and she works at a financial firm whose young, politically incorrect male employees like to go to bars. They tease her mercilessly, make wildly inappropriate remarks (it IS the 1980’s) or treat her like a little sister. She’s a genius at running the numbers and analyzing them, but in order to keep her job and advance at the firm she needs to present those numbers to clients, and that means getting over her paralyzing stage fright and hopefully finding one of the guys to go on the road with who won’t throw her under the bus. So off to the bar she goes with her co-workers, trying to kind of be one of the guys but not really, and that’s where Bartender Will comes in. He gives her the perfect drink/non-drink so she’ll fit in without actually drinking. Pretty tame start, right? Why on earth would two so remarkably different people ever see each other again after this innocuous bartender-customer meeting? Well, somehow they do keep seeing each other, ending up in the same places, spending time together – and thinking about each other pretty much non-stop. Of course once they do start to spend more time together each is very, very, very, very (enough verys?) clear that they aren’t looking for a serious long-term relationship, they’ve been down that road before, their careers must come first, they don’t have time for anything more, blah blah blah. And although this klutzy financial wizard and Shakespeare-quoting actor/bartender have very different opinions and butt heads often, you can fairly see the sparks of attraction between them, and the tenderness, too. What I’m Looking For (or maybe the title should be What I’m NOT Looking For, since Kate and Will are both so very clear about that) is a delightful story, unpredictable, at turns happy and sad. I listened to an audiobook version and was hooked from the very first word, which was cleverly an answering machine message. Remember those? The focus switches between Kate and Will and each chapter begins with that answering machine. The story transports you to the 1980’s. The clothes, hair, music, movies, dating scene, office culture. No cell phones or social media, no #metoo. Kate and Will are fabulous, as are Will’s female roommates who hover like big sisters, and Kate’s office road trip mate Hot Steve and her childhood best friend Love ‘em and Leave ‘em Alice. The story moves smoothly along, lots of surprises, lots of satisfying moments, and enough conflict and uncertainly to keep it interesting. The narration is perfect. I could listen to Karen White and Joe Arden all day long, and I almost did because once I started listening I couldn’t stop! Thanks to author Karen Grey for providing a copy of What I’m Looking For for my reading pleasure. All opinions are my own. I loved this story and this author and can’t wait for more in The Boston Classics series.
