    Description

    Sometimes love is a lot closer to home than you think. 

    Charlie Burroughs can’t keep a man. All he wants is a good relationship like the ones he sees his friends having, but none of the men he picks ever work out. Despite him trying to be the perfect boyfriend, the men are either threatened by his looks or his epilepsy or a combination of the two. It’s lucky that he has his best friend, Misha, to turn to. The two of them are closer than peas in a pod and fiercely loyal to each other. He can’t imagine his life without Misha in it.

    Misha Lebedinsky is the complete opposite of his best friend. Being the support system for his mum and twin sisters leaves Misha with neither the time nor the inclination for a relationship. Quick and frequent hookups are his favorite means of communication, and any other pesky emotional needs he has are met by Charlie, whom he’s devoted to. He lives a life of happy compartmentalization with no intention of ever changing. 

    All of this changes when the two best friends move in together. Being in close proximity means that they suddenly start to see each other in a very different light. But Charlie struggles when his drive to be the perfect partner clashes with the fact that he’s in love with a man who knows every little thing about him. And even if he can get past that, can a relationship ever work with a man who’d need a dictionary to tell him what love means? 

    From best-selling author Lily Morton comes a love story about a sunny librarian who has relationship written all over him and a cynical banker who doesn’t even have it in his blurb.

    friends to lovers

    Both Charlie and Misha suffered from head in the sand syndrome, refusing to see what was in front of them. It was so hard to see Charlie struggle to be the sunshiniest perfect boyfriend, convinced that it was the only way to keep one. I really empathized with his feelings of frustration and inadequacy from his chronic health condition. And Misha, bless his heart. His lack of relationship experience want he often lead with flippant when honesty and emotion were needed. They had a rocky road, but finally found their way. Joel Leslie is a Rockstar narrator and this book is no exception. I read the ebook previously and am so glad to experience the story in audio. Another outstanding performance by both author and narrator.

    enjoyed it

    Would I listen to it again: yes
    Did the story keep me engaged: yes
    Was I invested in the characters: yes

    📖 Story comment: Good pace, likeable characters, nice flow.
    I liked the way Charlie's character was written, I've had no experience with someone with epilepsy, but I like the way it was handled with no "magic fix".

    🎧 Narrator comment: Joel Leslie doing what he does best, nailed the characters and their personalities and bought the story to life. Overall an enjoyable performance

    Perfection!

    The combination of Lily Morton’s words and Joel Leslie’s narration is perfection! Charlie and Misha are so good together. Their snarky banter had me smiling and laughing out loud! Yet, underneath it all is a truly beautiful friendship that evolves into the love of a lifetime. I also adored the secondary characters. I can honestly say there wasn’t one thing that I didn’t love about this audiobook. If you are looking for a funny, steamy, love story this is it.

    Brillantly Performed!

    I enjoyed this book. It's not my favorite from Morton, but it's got all of the terrific dynamics and fantastic witty & biting banter that makes her so well-loved. The forever oblivious ongoing state of these two friends grew a little long for me when I'd read it in the past. However, after recently listening to Joel Leslie's brilliant narration those small grumbles easily fell away and I simply became immersed in the story. Leslie's performance really breathes life into these characters and helped to evoke a connection that I was missing before. Loads of fun to listen to - highly recommend the audio!

    Friendship Shines in Sweet Best Friends Love Story

    This sweet, steamy, and angst-free best friends-to-lovers romance between "relentlessly cheerful" librarian Charlie and his grumpy flatmate Misha is an easy and enjoyable listen.

    The snarky banter and genuine caring and affection between the two as friends first really shines. Misha is wonderfully defensive of Charlie (the red knickers...) and once they've coupled up, they're refreshingly open with their emotions and talking things out.

    The deepening of their relationship from longtime friends to boyfriends is deliciously steamy and without complication, and watching Misha fumble through dating for the first time is pretty adorable. Charlie's health (he has epilepsy) is presented respectfully and as an aspect of his life rather than a central focus of the story.

    Narrator Joel Leslie delivers a solid performance here, with convincing British accents and female voices. The fairly subtle difference between Charlie's and Misha's voices was enough to differentiate.

    This book totally works as a standalone. The cover is striking but I'm still not sure who it's supposed to be given the character descriptions (a slight pet peeve). I received this free review copy audio book by request and have left this honest review voluntarily.

    Just like the first time.

    I read Charlie Sunshine when it was first released a few years ago and have loved this book ever since. However, I recently had the opportunity to listen to the audio version and it was like experiencing the Charlie Sunshine for the first time all over again. Joel Leslie is a true talent with the great ability to bring to life every character from the page. Charlie Sunshine is a heartwarming, friends to lovers romance with all the sweet and steam that romance readers love. Whether you are listening or reading, I'm sure all readers will fall in love with this book, just like I did.

    Right in front of each other

    Charlie has a Sunshine persona. One he displays as he feels needs to be just so in order to be in a relationship.
    Misha is his best friend who is a grump compared to him.
    When life forces them to live together, they slowly come to realsise what has been right in front of them all along.

    This being a best friends to lovers story, the plot is low angst but full of feels, care and passion.
    I love how Misha grew as a character and was the perfect support system to Charlie.

    The narration was done amazingly well and each character was brought to life splendidly.

    Such A Cute Book!

    #ARC received from GRR reviews

    This book was so much fun! The main characters, Charlie and Misha, are two best friends that don't realize they have a deeper connection than friendship. I loved Charlie because he feels relatable. Charlie, unfortunately, deals with epilepsy, but he puts on a happy front to pretend he isn't struggling. I appreciated Charlie's struggle and how he learned to cope with it. When Misha and Charlie get involved, I loved seeing both of them grow individually; and Charlie's acceptance that Misha wants him for him despite his epilepsy. The love Charlie and Misha find in each other is beautiful. I've read many of Lily Morton's books before, so I'm not surprised I enjoyed this book so much! As always, Joel Leslie did a great job narrating! I'm going to purchase the previous book in this series for Zeb and Jesse's love story.

    Perfection

    Lily and Joel are the perfect pair. I adore this book, and now I REALLY adore it on audio. Charlie and Misha are so fun and so sweet and so sexy. Will be re-listening.
