New Audiobook Review: Blindsided by Amy Daws

Blindsided by Amy Daws is LIVE on Audio!

🎧 🎧


What happens when an almost thirty-year-old virgin agrees to let her Scottish footballer best friend give her some lessons in seduction?

Lots of banter, awkwardness, jealousy, and heat.

Midfielder Maclay “Mac” Logan is a loud-mouthed, tattooed ginger content with focusing on football. But when an adorably-freckled seamstress comes barreling into his life, he finds Netflix-And-Bickering with her to be his new favorite pastime.

Freya Cook is used to being the invisible woman with a needle and thread, offering cheeky punchlines as she helps dress London’s finest. She’s plus-sized in body and spirit, and other than her friendship with Mac, talking to the opposite sex is one skill she never mastered.

However, after one innocent game of Never Have I Ever, Mac offers to play Love Coach for Freya.

What neither of them see coming are the feelings that develop when the clothes come off.

Now they’re both about to learn the biggest lesson of all: Don't fall in love with your best friend.

My review: 5 stars!
Friends to lovers is my catnip- my favorite trope of all. I love seeing just how perfect the hero and heroine are for each other romantically before they figure it out and seeing the light bulb go on is always a treat. Blindsided pairs that trope with the virgin trope, as our heroine Freya is not experienced and asks the hero Mac for his assistance. These two have amazing natural chemistry and it is endearing to see the encouragement Mac gives to Freya and how invested he is in seeing her happy. So sweet! The author said she thinks Freya is her spirit animal, and I think she may be mine as well. I loved her quirky, spunky, hilarious personality. This book was really special, and one of my favorites by Amy Daws. Blindsided would read just fine as a standalone, but you'll want to go back and get to know characters from her previous books, I promise!

Narrators Will Watt and Charlotte Cole perform the audio duet style (narrators alternating reading the male and female parts in a chapter), and knock it out of the park, as usual. They are amazing and such a great duo. Will Watt does a fantastic Scottish accent, and Charlotte does a fantastic job bringing quirky Freya to life. Couldn't have wished for better casting!
