Business or Pleasure

Barely getting by with her job as a ghostwriter, Chandler is excited about an opportunity to earn a significantly larger paycheck. Then she meets the client. Not only is he a recent one-night stand, but his lackluster bedroom technique overshadowed the sparking chemistry between them. Though his teen-werewolf show ended years ago, the popularity of Finn’s character has made him a regular on the comic con circuit. He is delighted that his possible ghostwriter could be the one he shared a mind-blowing night with. As they travel together, Chandler tells him why she left, surprising Finn with the revelation that his bedroom moves left much to be desired. They agree that when they’re not working on the book, Chandler will teach Finn how to pleasure a woman. Narrator Hathaway Lee’s expressive delivery captures the nuances of the primary characters’ personalities, such as Chandler’s wryness and Finn’s reserved shyness. Because the tale is told from Chandler’s point of view, the listener may experience the protagonist’s emotions, including her frustration and her desire during some of the many steamier interactions; however, as many characters sound similar, there are moments that the combined heat in intimate scenes is slightly dampened.
VERDICT Lee’s performance amuses and entertains despite the slight variations in character voices.
