Everyone I Kissed Since You Got Famous by Mav Marvel

“Everyone I Kissed Since You Got Famous” by Mav Marvel is a heartwarming and steamy romantic read that gripped my heart and didn’t let go. The story of Katie Price, an A-list actress returning to her small-town roots, and Wil Greene, her former best friend turned online sensation, is a perfect blend of wit, emotion, and passion.

Katie and Wil’s reconnection is instantaneous, and the chemistry between them is palpable. The angst stemming from Katie’s fame and Wil’s ongoing quest to figure out her life adds depth to their story, making it truly gripping. The intimacy shared between the characters leads to a smoldering romance that is both captivating and memorable. The slow burn of their pining and desire is some of the best I’ve read in a long time.

The addition of cute and fun moments, like Katie’s love for her cats and the quirky characters on her team, adds another layer to the story. However, I did struggle with Katie’s mom’s protectiveness and wished for more explanation about her behavior.

Regarding the audiobook narrated by Mia Hutchinson-Shaw, the narration itself was wonderful and well-executed. Hutchinson-Shaw’s performance brought the characters to life, enhancing the emotional impact of the story. Unfortunately, there were some issues with audio quality. You can hear where pickups and re-recordings were done based on volume changes, which seems to be a common occurrence lately in audiobooks. It was quite distracting when it happened.

Overall, “Everyone I Kissed Since You Got Famous” is an unforgettable romantic read that will resonate with anyone who almost kissed their best friend and then finally did. Despite the audio quality issues, the story and narration make this audiobook worth a listen.
