If you need lots of giggles, some sexiness, and the best
This Rom-Com gave me all the warm and fuzzy feelings. Not to mention how often I burst out laughing (and I can tell you, I’m not that easily amused, haha!). It was exactly my kind of humor, very snarky with awesome banter.

Ember, the Single Mom, and Baker, the Man of Mystery
I absolutely loved Ember and how she finds herself again. She has quite a few things to deal with, but she takes it with this incredible sense of humor. I lost count how many times she made me laugh out loud.
Things happen and Ember starts to exchange emails with this man she’s never met before, Baker. A lot of authors can write funny banter, but only
Basically, my entire review could read “LOL!! Listen to this audiobook!”
And Baker was just so sweet with Ember. He wholeheartedly supports her and really tries to be a good partner for her. The way he acts, his personality, is really swoon-worthy.
I’d also like to mention that he has a physical disability. I always appreciate representation in Romance 🙂
One Thing Though… (or should I say, one girl?)
There was one single thing that bothered me a little bit because it’s a concept I’m generally primed for and allergic to. You can see it in this part of the blurb.
He’s never met a woman who says whatever she’s thinking and doesn’t fawn all over him when she finds out what he does for a living.
It sounded too much like the “she’s not like any other girl”-trope. We’re all different, mmkay?! It’s a minor theme in the book and I could ignore it. But it’s there and I think it wasn’t needed in this form.
He could have just enjoyed the way she reacted to and interacted with him, without it being pointed out how NO WOMAN HAS EVER DONE THAT.
But, that’s really all. Other than this, I had the best time listening to Just My Type and wholeheartedly recommend it.
This audiobook is narrated by CJ Bloom and James Cavenaugh. Their voices fit perfectly for the roles of Ember and Baker.
CJ Bloom is great at doing the snark and James Cavenaugh has this warm, deep voice that instantly made me able to picture Baker in my head.
Just My Type by Tara Sivec definitely wins all the Best Banter awards! But it’s also a beautiful love story and a perfectly produced audiobook. So, if you’re looking for a funny and uplifting story, this book is for you.
