On a Tuesday is the fourth book I’ve read by Whitney G. and to say that I was highly anticipating it would be an understatement. I was so excited to get the chance to participate in a blog tour for one of her books, and a second chance romance? Yes, please. I didn’t end up loving this one quite as much as I’d expected, but it was a cute, quick read and it definitely wasn’t a bad way to spend a few hours.
Since this was an audiobook, I think the first thing I’ll address is the narration. I thought that both the male and female narrators did a great job with the book. I often find that audiobook narrators speak way too slowly (sometimes I speed it up to 2.0x so I don’t fall asleep) but I only had to speed it up a little bit here.
So, while the story was cute and the narration was good, there were a couple things that kept me from rating it five stars:
- I felt that the book was a little short to fully develop the past and present of Charlotte and Grayson’s relationship. Since a book of 216 pages was split between two narrators and two time periods, there just wasn’t that much time for anything to happen.
- The relationship between Charlotte and Grayson kind of came out of nowhere. One minute she’s refusing to give him her phone number and the next, she’s losing her virginity. I missed the buildup and the romancing, which is one of my favorite parts of reading a romance book.
- I read a lot of romance, okay, but I am not used to hearing some of these lines (like “put your pussy on my face”) whispered in my ear while I’m drinking juice and petting my cat. I think I might have preferred this as a physical book.
Overall, I don’t know that I would necessarily recommend this book to anybody that isn’t already a big fan of Whitney G.
