Hello and welcome!
I just finished one of the best audiobook I listened to this year and I thought I should share it with you.
“Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words” is a laugh-out-loud romcom with a few cringe-worthy (for Heidi that is) situations and some hawt scenes too. I learned a few new expressions too.
Uff da is one of them, I learned that is used to express surprise, relief, exhaustion, astonishment, and dismay. It kind of means “drats!”, “oops!”, “ouch!”, “Oh no!” or “Okay!”
I need one of these in my life LOL
Nothing good ever comes from drinking a box of wine alone. So when I decided to entertain my drunken self by setting up some hand-me-down podcasting equipment and reading the steamy parts from romance novels, I never thought anyone would actually listen. The fact that I admitted my huge crush on my sexy next door neighbor made the whole thing even more mortifying. But sometimes life surprises you, and that’s how my podcast, Heidi’s Discount Erotica, was born.
Now I, Heidi Larsen, a sweet former kindergarten teacher in Waconia, Minnesota, lead a scandalous double life reading erotic novels to the listening world. And with each episode, I find myself embracing my new alter ego more and more. Now I’m starting to feel more comfortable in my own skin and do things I never would have dreamed of – like kissing my neighbor.
Look out, Waconia, because Heidi’s on the loose! She’s in your ears, in your hearts, and down your pants…wait, that didn’t sound as good as it did in my head. Well, you get the picture, don’tcha know!
Overall 5 out of 5 stars
Performance 5 out of 5 stars
Story 5 out of 5 stars
“sweet and hilarious”
One of the best books I listened to this year. Sweet, innocent Heidi comes out of her shell and oh boy what a ride. Hilarious at times where I burst out laughing, startled quite a few people around me, at work or in the elevator. DO NOT DRINK OR EAT while listening to this! I loved the interactions between Heidi and her quirky parents and the Aunt is my fave character. Love Brent, her hawt neighbour. They get their HEA, but there are a few twists I so didn’t expect. My first book by Ms. Sivec and I am looking forward to discovering more of her books.
Ms. Arndt is one of my fave narrators, I love listening to her voices, and with this debut novel that launches her writing career, she is even more so. I really hope there will be more because I need more stories.
For those of you who don’t do audio there is a preorder – Amazon US
– ebook is releasing December 3, 2019
Tara Sivec can be found on her website, FB, Twitter, also check out the Pinterest board for Heidi’s book and you will see who are the characters and other tidbits. A new author for me, I will definitely check out her other books.
I wonder if I can convince Andi and Tara to send one of the characters for a chat… hmm… maybe Brent? Or Heidi’s Aunt? She is my fave secondary character… hmmm
I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope there will be more books in Heidi’s world, we need more stories!!!
Until next time… read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!
