Synopsis from Goodreads.com:
What is Clare Wingate doing? One minute she’s suffering in a pretty-in-pink gown she’ll never wear again, and the next thing she knows it’s morning…and she has the nastiest hangover of her life.
To make matters worse, she’s wearing nothing but a spritz of Escada and lying next to Sebastian Vaughan…her girlhood crush turned sexy, globe-hopping journalist. Somewhere between the toast and the toss of the bouquet she’d gotten herself into a whole lot of trouble.
Clare had the right to go wild – after all, she’d been knocked off her dyed-to-match shoes after finding her own fiance in a compromising position with the washing machine repairman. Clearly her society wedding is off.
But Sebastian pushed all the wrong buttons – and some of the right ones, too. Clare is in no mood for love – not even for lust – and wants to forget about Sebastian and his six-pack abs ASAP. But he isn’t in the mood to go away, and his kiss is impossible to forget.
I’m in No Mood for Love is the second book of the Writer Friends 4-books series. Each book in the series focuses on one of the four writers, who are also friends and have meetings/gatherings. I did not get to read the first book before digging into this one. Even though reading the first book, Sex, Lies, and Online Dating, is not necessary in order to understand the second book, I do recommend reading it first. I feel like I was missing some details on the friendship part of the book as it does not explain it very well.
The book is perfect as audio-book format and the narrator, Kathleen Early, has done a great job. Most of the book is dialogue between two people, so it is very light and easy to follow. Also, the narrator makes the characters very easy to differentiate, for example she would use a deeper tone for male characters. The narrator does narrate in a slightly slower pace than normal talking speed; it was weird at first but I got used to it and found it more clear that way.
My favorite scene is when Sebastian plays a joke on Clare in the very beginning, making her believes in something that did not happen. I love how this little friendly move changes into romance before they even aware of it. Overall, I really enjoyed the book and would recommend who wants an easy/fun read (probably for the summer/beach).
