Can an always-tardy garlic mogul and a punctual Silicon Valley librarian fall in love?
The world needs garlic and somebody’s got to sell that garlic. Cedric Johnson is that man. But even though he’s got just about everything he can wish for, Cedric is still missing one thing in his life: someone special. Fate may be on his side, but he encounters a few distractions along the way—like almost being killed by a UPS truck. Oh, and a little case of blackmail.
Ellie Fontaine is a walking Wikipedia with clear professional goals, but when it comes to landing Mr. Right, she doesn’t know jack squat. She gives online dating a shot, but ends up with an unappetizing buffet of unibrows and losers. What’s a girl to do?
After Ellie saves Cedric’s life, serendipity takes over as they continue to run into each other. Their connection grows stronger with each meeting, even though he embodies her number one pet peeve: he’s always late. But even if they can get past their issues and misunderstandings, Ellie’s ex-boyfriend, an unscrupulous cop, will do anything to keep them apart.
FIVE MINUTES LATE is a hilarious fast-paced romantic comedy, full of snappy dialogue and fun, quirky characters, guaranteed to warm your heart.
WARNING: Listen to (or read) this book when you’re able to laugh hysterically. NOT when you’re at work. I listened over the course of a few days and found myself covering my mouth and silently laughing several times.
This story is absolutely amazing. You will need to be able to stomach some witty and “creative” language with no holds barred conversation between the characters. Personally, I loved it. But I’m twisted and immature, and this is right up my alley! If you’re looking for a book that will make you laugh and awww, then this is the one to grab now.
Narrator review: I have trouble listening to audiobooks where the narrator sounds…computery. Recently, I’ve found a few that I can handle. Michael is the only male narrator that I have found (so far) that I absolutely love. He can handle the different tones and vocal ranges and it sounds like I’m listening to multiple people. I’ll definitely check out other books that Michael has narrated!
