An awkward alliance doesn't even begin to cover Rimmel and Romeo's relationship. But that's about to change.It starts with a dare. An initiation. A challenge. Quickly, it turns into more. But when you're a victim of your status, there is no room for anything real. The rules are clear and simple: Stick to your circle. And never fall in love with anyone on the outside.
So, I decided to give audiobooks a go. Years ago, when I had a long commute, I listed to the Harry Potter books narrated by Jim Dale. They are perfection btw and a hard act to follow. Plus, while I can read sexy scenes, I didn’t want to listen to someone read them. I’m too prudish for that. So, I had to find something with perfect narrators, not overly descriptive sex, and a book I would want to hear. #Nerd is that book.
I read #Nerd when it was first released in 2014 and I was in LOVE. If you haven’t read the series, you need to. Its a bit of “She’s all that”, a bit of all those early 2000 movies staring Freddy Prince Jr; you know the ones I’m talking about. Romeo is the campus golden boy; Rimmel is a nobody. He falls for her and its all adorable. I really do love the story. So, how is it in audio? Pretty good!
I thought the 2 narrators did a good job overall. I was slightly annoyed at how nasal-y the female narrator got when speaking in Ivy’s voice. If she is the narrator for Ivy’s book, I wouldn’t be able to listen to it. I can’t imagine anyone keeping up that voice while they read 500 pages though. The guy who did romeo’s voice did well. It wasn’t exactly what I imagined in my head, but pretty close. I found myself totally getting sucked in and trying to find times to listen to it beyond just my commute time.
