Review of Satisfaction Guaranteed by Karelia Stetz-Waters, audiobook narrated by Lori Prince
After reading a zombie book full of gross unattached bodily parts and rivers of blood, I decided that a good humourous book is what I needed to cleanse the palate. Satisfaction Guaranteed has been on my TBR list for a while and with Lori Prince as the audiobook narrator, it was all the reason I needed to listen to it.
Cade Elgin is an accountant with an organised but dull life. That is until she inherits a sex toy store from her estranged aunt. Cade is forced to work along with Selena Mathis, her sexy but currently celibate co-owner, to save the business from debt collectors. What Cade and Selena couldn’t anticipate is the mutual attraction between them…
Satisfaction Guaranteed is a rom-com with a very quirky sense of humour. I guess it’s not for everyone but if you are a fan of Robin Alexander’s books, it’s very possible that you are going to enjoy this one too. It’s the kind of book that you cannot take seriously, you just go with the flow of the craziness of the characters and the ridiculousness of the situations they are involved in. Imagine a prude accountant and a free spirit, very sexual business partner. The humour possibilities are infinite. This book has a few funny scenes that got me laughing out loud.
I’m sure that much of my enjoyment with this story is due to the choice of narrator. Lori Prince is perfect for this story as her comedic timing is impeccable. Her performance of the different characters, quirky or not, is fantastic. If you are looking for some light entertainment and some easy laughs, then this one of for you. 4.5 stars.
Length: 7 hours, 53 minutes
