Good Time by Jana Aston
Narrated by Erin Mallon
Romantic Comedy. Standalone in a Related Series
I ‘legiterally’ had such a GOOD TIME listening to this that I am already trying to see when I can fit in listening again, because this is a book I have to repeat when I need a silly, giggly, fun time. I absolutely LOVED Good Girl by Jana Aston, and I loved GOOD TIME even more.
“He looks like just my type. Tall, dark, handsome and hung.”
Payton is the crazy best friend. You know how the virgin always has the kinda wild and slutty friend? Well, that’s Payton, but she is a crazy hot mess and she is ‘legiterally’ hysterical. Then there is Vince.
“Vince is delicious. Vince is every inappropriate fantasy I’ve ever had wrapped up into one perfect package.”
They are complete opposites, but one drunken Vegas night and you know what happens to drunk people in Vegas!
They were complete opposites attract, but I love how he loved her crazy. He was completely entertained by her when you think he’d be appalled.
“We could make out behind that pinball machine.”
“I don’t think that would work.”
“Because the pinball machine is not an invisibility cloak and public fornication is illegal in Las Vegas.”
“Oh, my God. You’re a dirty talker! This is so much more than I deserve. Say fornication again.”
And even though we didn’t really get much of Vince’s POV, I loved him.
“I’m not sure that you understand the concept of negotiating.”
“Fine. What do I have that you want?”
I will definitely say this book isn’t for everyone. There will be the haters that say “WTF did I just read? That chick is bonkers!” YES! I feel the same but in a GOOD way! If you aren’t a fan of the over-the-top crazy and fun girl, maybe this isn’t for you. But if you like to laugh and you like the crazy, Good Time by Jana Aston is a MUST READ.
- I laughed out loud so many times!
- Payton’s complete lack of filter.
- She wasn’t a virgin and was just fine with casual sex.
- They were such opposites, but they totally worked.
- I loved every side character, and I hope we get a few of their stories.
- Her stream of consciousness style of writing.
- The way the 3rd wall is knocked down and she speaks directly to the reader.
- The epilogue.
- The first half was a bit slower than the second because we were mostly in her head.
- I wish we had a bit more of Vince’s POV while reading, but in the end, it all worked out.
Erin Mallon was perfect for this. Her comedic timing was spot-on and she did crazy so well! Plus I absolutely LOVE her male voice more than most male narrators. I think that the narration made it even funnier than just reading would have.
The Down & Dirty:
A note on the rating: The first half was 4 stars. The second half was probably close to 4.5-5. But the epilogue is what made this finally get a 5-star rating from me.
Rating: 5 Stars, 4.5 Heat, 5 Narration
