✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Single and Ready to Jingle by Piper Rayne


Single and Ready to Jingle
By: Piper Rayne
Narrated by: John Lane & CJ Bloom

The girl who loves Christmas falls for the Grinch—it’s a Christmas miracle. What started as a dumpster fire of a blind date turns into a deal.

In truth, it probably didn’t help that I showed up dressed like an elf but that’s a story for another time. Our start was rocky at best which is why it’s so frustrating that I can’t stop thinking about his sexy British accent. Or the way his chest and arms fill out his suit. Or his perfect hair with that single streak of grey at the front.

Santa likes lists and so do I, so here’s all the reasons why Andrew and I aren’t right for each other:

  • He’s my brother’s best friend.
  • He’s the biggest grump I’ve ever met.
  • He hates Christmas.

That last one is big for a girl like me who thinks that the entire month of December should be a national holiday. So, when he calls for my help in planning his firm’s holiday party, I can’t pass up the opportunity to grow my small business. Bonus, we make a deal, and he agrees to attend three holiday events with me so I can make him fall in love with Christmas. As if I’d pass up an opportunity to make a Grinch’s heart grow three times its size.

It isn’t long until I discover Andrew has a very real reason to hate Christmas and I start to see him in a different light. That’s when the Christmas miracle begins.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I've already read or listened to a fair number of Christmas romances this year, and we're not even to Thanksgiving yet. That said, I think I've found the top of the list in Single and Ready to Jingle. This book was an absolute joy from the very first line to the very last. Opposites attract is one of my favorite romance tropes, and when you add in that one side of that is a sexy grump, I'm all over it. The sexy British accent doesn't hurt, either! Andrew and Kenzie are a terrific combination of feels, fun, steamy, and swoony. And if it wasn't already a totally engaging holiday romance, Piper Rayne takes it up another notch with duet narration. If you've never had the pleasure of duet narration, you don't know what you're missing, especially when they give a performance like John Lane and CJ Bloom. I've listened to both narrators before, so I already expected good things. They certainly delivered. So, if you're looking for a great Christmas listen, this is one to check out. It made for an enjoyable evening curled up in my favorite chair, drink of choice in hand.
