あらすじ・解説

In this audio-first rom com by #1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely, a scorching one-night stand with a stranger turns into a deliciously forbidden romance...

My first evening in London feels like kismet when I bump into a charming, book-loving Englishman, and by the end of the night, he’s making me see stars. I’m floating when we make plans to meet again.

Then fate decides to pull a fast one on me.

Turns out, my smoldering new lover is my red-hot competition, and we’re vying for the same promotion at the elite auction house I crossed an ocean for.

If that’s not enough, the hottie and I are forced to work together on a brand new collection. Every. Single. Tempting. Day.

What's an American woman in London to do?

Staying far, far away would be the safe choice, especially when I learn about his past and how it mirrors mine. But I don’t always play it safe with my heart…

Swoony and Steamy Romance!

Kismet by Lauren Blakely was a swoony and steamy whimsical romance that just gave me all the delicious happy feels. I loved Jo and Heath's whirlwind romance from start to finish, and could not stop listening. From the magical setting of London, to memorable characters, to all the spicy scenes, Lauren does what she does best absolutely sweeping me off my feet!

Shane East and Julia Whelan narrate the audio, and were a decadent audio delight. I was completely consumed in their performances of Heath and Jo. Shane East was perfection portraying the evolution of Heath from broody grumpy Brit, to caring, passionate lover. Julia Whelan portrayed Jo's ambitions, vulnerabilities, and past hurts brilliantly switching flawlessly between her American and British accents. Jo and Heath's chemistry was undeniable plus scorching hot, and you could feel all of this in Shane and Julia's narration!

Overall, I enjoyed this audio and story. If you love a one-night-stand to forever romance with a grumpy hunky Englishman who loves books, an ambitious American woman in London, super hot steamy times, a little friendly competition, supportive best friends, family drama, and an HEA that will paint your heart with giddiness and just make you smile, then you will love Jo and Heath's story. I always look forward to more from Lauren Blakely.

Love this Story

This is one of my favorite Lauren Blakely stories. I enjoyed the main characters — their lives were realistic — blending difficulty with hope and passion. I like having two narrators in a romance and these professionals did a wonderful job.

*happy sigh*

What an absolute #swoonfest this story turned out to be. It was poignant and humorous and everything in between! It was real and relatable and just plain fun! I laughed and I cried and I felt everything!

Both Julia Whelan & Shane East did a superb job bringing these characters to life thru their narration! Well done!

⭐️⭐️ 4 Star ⭐️⭐️

I love a story about 2 people dealing with their own heartbreak and finding happiness together. I really loved the friendship Jo & Heath found together while trying not to fall in love, it made the love relationship even better since they started off their relationship so fast and then tried to back track. I also loved the ending because they both found a way to be happy without the other losing out on their dreams and happiness.

Loved the narration, both were perfectly cast. Julia Whelan is a favorite of mine and she has an awesome Male British accent which is always surprising. I was happy to see her working with Lauren and hope to hear more of her for Lauren's books.

Some things are meant to be!

As a huge believer in fate and Kismet, this book was right up my alley. Heath is a 40 year old widower working in London and avoiding the dreaded set-ups everyone is trying to force on him. Jo is a 32 year-old single woman who is having to move from New York to London to further her career. One magical night, being in the right place at just the right time, and everything changes, until the next day. No spoilers here, but this beautifully crafted story of fate, love, and chance encounters asks the question “What would you risk for love?” Shane East and Julia Whelan are a magnificent pairing and inhabit these characters so completely and genuinely that you don’t want the story ever to end. Low angst, plenty of steam, and just a perfectly lovely romance novel.

2nd chances and chosen families

We don’t always get what we need from our given family. We create a family we choose, just as Jo did in NY. Just like a true family they give her a nudge and then approval to pursue her love with Heath. He in turn finds a way to heal and love after loss.

Fun and Fabulous Performances

Though steamier than my usual fare, this audiobook was “just what the doctor ordered.” @justjuliawhelan is always fantastic, an absolute pleasure to hear. Her partner in delectable narration is new to me but i plan to seek out more of his work. Thanks Audible for this delightful fantasy romp through lovely London!

Delightful!!!

What a perfect Valentines Day gift to myself. So so delightful. The drama is minimal the scenery is light and airy. If you have ever been to London and Paris then you know all the places Heath spoke about. Even if you haven’t you can just feel it. Get it you will not regret it! Have to give this a second listen!!! Worth the credit ❤️😉

Eh... dull. sane old same old

As I've said before, LB is a hit or miss for me... this one is a miss. I had high hopes ... even reserved a pre-copy... and the first few chapters were okay, but gosh, it's exactly the same boring cookie-cutter characters.
No lead to rimance or live just boom instant. Same unimaginative template sex scenes. Same highend dream jobs ... Predictable <Yawn>
The only new twists are the poor business acumen displayed in the ending. It wouldn't have happened.
God, I long for a unique tale ... it's been so long :(

Heath & Jo

Kismet was a lovely sweet listen. In London, Jo and Heath meet in the pub (this is so British) and spend one steamy night together where they agree to meet again. Fast forward a few days and fate intervenes again bringing them together as work colleagues. The decision that their relationship shouldn’t move into love territory is made for them in that instant but they still feel the pull towards each other.
This was my first audiobook narrated by Julia Whelan but hopefully not my last as she really made Jo come to life. The brilliant Shane East just makes all the male characters sound great so it’s always a pleasure to listen to his narrations.

loved the female narrator

but the male one made the "sexy" scenes kind of eugh! maybe I'm sexist, I suppose all of that is personal choice. also strange that all the sex scenes were given from the male perspective and kind of owning the woman .anyway a fun enough story and nothing to get me blubbing which was what I was after!

Okay… but that’s it

A bit sickly at times but to a point that’s what I signed up for… however it really annoys me when books are written and set in the UK and yet americanisms are rife. This is unfortunately a big issue for me in this book. Maybe one set in the states wouldn’t irk me so much.

Not my cuppa

Never listened to this genre on audiobook before so I'm not sure if I'd have enjoyed it more if I read it. The male narrator's voice was lovely but when he tried to speak with a woman's tone, he sounded camp. There's nothing wrong with sounding camp but not for a love story hero who is straight. The female narrator was good but her female English accent was off. I couldn't really enjoy the story because of these two things and I don't know if I would have enjoyed it if I'd read it.

Really great love story, shame about the cheese

It was my first. first of this kind of book. I honestly though it was a love story and that it was a beautiful one, but I wasn't impressed with the explicit sexual parts. The book would have been great without it. There was too little of it to class it as erotica but I personally felt it was out of place.

The story is a beautiful coincidence and a lovely happy ending 💖

Feel good vibes all the way

Sometimes there’s nothing better than an angst free, feel good romance, and Kismet is all that and more. What does kismet mean? It means fate or destiny, and I’ve got to say, Jo and Heath we’re destined to be together. They were perfect for each other, a chance meeting, sexual chemistry, one night is not going to be enough. They have so many common interests, it’s no surprise to me that they’re on the same career path (it is however a surprise to them when they discover they’re going to be working together). Lovers, to friends, to lovers, office romance with a lot of fun times and a little added family drama. A light, entertaining audio with wonderful narration from Shane East and Julia Whelan.

So cheesy I became lactose intolerant

The story and narration is so cheesy it made me lactose intolerant. I didn’t get past chapter 4 with the sex scene I had to stop in case I regurgitated my four cheese pizza. Yuk!

Slice of life story. Nice to have two characters be honest with their feelings without the angst. I really enjoyed Wanderlust 5/5 too.

Not my cup of tea

Listened because I’m a fan of Julia Whelan’s narration, particularly, Beach Read.

Plot: Couple meets, have zero difficulties/conflicts, roll credits. Plot seemed obvious and the sex scenes were a bit cringey. I could have forgiven the lack of plot development had there been wittier exchanges between the main characters.

Not my cup of tea.

Cute duel narration

This is actually book three in happy endings series.
I’m a big fan of shane east and both him and Julia do a good job.

Little to no angst
Hea? Yes
Romance? Yes
World building? Not really. Totally fine as a stand alone. No big secondary characters.
