    The Instant New York Times Best Seller from the Number One New York Times Best-Selling Author of People We Meet on Vacation

    “Original, sparkling bright, and layered with feeling.” (Sally Thorne, author of The Hating Game)

    A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.

    Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes best-selling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast. 

    They’re polar opposites. 

    In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they're living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer's block.

    Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She’ll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he’ll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really.

    "[Narrator Julia] Whelan perfectly captures January's defensiveness, which soon gives way to laughter and yearning. She portrays Gus in a deep, gruff voice suited to his brooding personality. When the authors make a bet to write and sell a book in the other's genre, both break through writer's block and give in to an intense attraction that sparkles on audio." (AudioFile Magazine)

    "Reader, I swooned! Beach Read is a breath of fresh air. My heart ached for January, and Gus is to die for - a steamy, smart and perceptive romance. I was engrossed!" (Josie Silver, number one New York Times best-selling author of One Day in December)

    Amazing!

    I so loved this book! What a great story, you fall in love with the characters immediately. The narrator told the story so wonderful, I laughed out loud and I cried and was so deeply touched. For me this is a story about love, but not only between two persons, but about living life to the fullest, and daring to love to the fullest. And about the love we have for our parents. And of course about the love of books, both writing and reading. Which makes it perfect. Thank you for this book. I am so very grateful.

    a great beach read

    I thought this book was going to be a nice light read. It was a great read and as I listened to it I got more and more intrigued. The story was so good I was sorry to finish it. Always a good sign.

    GANZ anders

    alle Beschreibungen klingen nach RomKom.
    Aber das ist es nicht.
    Nicht wirklich.
    Viel tiefer.
    Viel dunkler.
    Gaaaanz anders.

    UND: das Ende ist anders als im Buch.

    Ich weiß nicht, ob ich DAS so gut finde ...

    It was great! :)

    I started the audiobook Friday after work and finished it Saturday evening. I had my earphones in nearly all the time and did everything while listening to the story. Cooking, cleaning, Shopping... You name it.
    The voice of the speaker is nice to listen to and she really did a great job here.
    The story does not focus as much on the romance as the description might suggest and I really liked that aspect since I hoped it wouldn't be to cheesy. But the story focuses more on the development of the characters and how your environment makes you into the person you are. I really loved this aspect and therefor I give 5 stars for the story. Although I mentioned that there is not too much romance we get a nice love story, great dialogues and chemistry between the characters and brilliant insides on how communication can be difficult sometimes.
    All in all I really enjoyed listening to it. :)

    Fun story and good narration

    Book I didn’t know I needed so much in my life!

    It was witty and interesting and at some point couldn’t stop listening to the story as I was curious as to what was going to happen next.
    The narrator is also great.

    Schönes Buch.

    Schöne Romanze. Hat gut getan dieses Buch zu hören. Es war auch einige Male ziemlich unerwartet emotional. :) Die Sprecherin war übrigens top. Total angenehme Stimme!

    Pretty predictable

    My expectations of a lighter, well written and entertaining book weren‘t really fulfilled: I really disliked the main characters- cardboard cutout tortured artist and spoiled, whiny heroine. This of course is a matter of taste- but still, the whole thing seemed a lot more superficial and stereotypical than it needed to be…

    The first audio fiction book I have listened to twice...

    .... ever? The second round, I appreciated the language even more and the way, the author described feelings and emotions. And I got even more annoyed by the moralistic tone the protagonist judges her fathers affair. Besides that, it was an entertaining and heartwarming book. It made me cry and laugh and it is beautiful written and told.

    Everything I want from a story

    I laughed and I cried and I fell in love with the characters. I almost want to listen to it again immediately.
