The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez
Steam Level: It’s Getting Warmer
Two years after losing her fiancé, Sloan Monroe still can’t seem to get her life back on track. But one trouble-making pup with a “take me home” look in his eyes is about to change everything. With her new pet by her side, Sloan finally starts to feel more like herself. Then, after weeks of unanswered texts, Tucker’s owner reaches out. He’s a musician on tour in Australia. And bottom line: He wants Tucker back.
Well, Sloan’s not about to give up her dog without a fight. As their flirty texts turn into long calls, Sloan can’t deny a connection. There’s no telling what could happen when they meet in person. The question is: With his music career on the rise, how long will Jason really stick around? And is it possible for Sloan to survive another heartbreak?Goodreads

Do you ever read a book, and you know something terrible will happen, and you almost want to skip over it because it’s going to be painful to read? Well, that happened to me while reading (listening to actually) this book.
I listened to The Friend Zone and knew I wanted to listen to the next book in this series. I liked this one, but I missed the banter that Kristen and Josh had. Jason and Sloan were cute, adorably cute. And I did love them together. But there were a few parts that I just hated reading. I knew what was coming, and I understand why it had to happen, but I was not happy about it.
Sloan played a significant role in The Friend Zone, so I was familiar with her. She was likable, but I prefer my main characters, feisty. Sloan was undoubtedly a strong woman, but she also seemed to do things for other people and not herself. Jason was a great character; I mean, sexy musician, how can you go wrong? I enjoyed their story, but these two were almost too perfect.
As I mentioned, I listened to this book, and as in The Friend Zone, Erin Mallon did the female narration. I enjoy Erin, and she is one of the few females whose voices don’t irritate me. Jason’s chapters were read by Zachary Webber, one of my all-time favorite male narrators. His voice may have helped me like Jason’s character even more. As usual, Zachary Webber conveyed so much emotion in his inflections and tone I connected with the character even more.
