Astrid Parker Doesn't Fail Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
An interior designer who is never without the perfect plan learns to renovate her love life without one in this new romantic comedy by Ashley Herring Blake, author of Delilah Green Doesn’t Care.
For Astrid Parker, failure is unacceptable. Ever since she broke up with her fiancé a year ago, she’s been focused on her career—her friends might say she’s obsessed, but she knows she’s just driven. When Pru Everwood asks her to be the designer for the Everwood Inn’s renovation, which will be featured on a popular HGTV show, Innside America, Astrid is thrilled. Not only will the project distract her from her failed engagement and help her struggling business, but her perpetually displeased mother might finally give her a nod of approval.
However, Astrid never planned on Jordan Everwood, Pru’s granddaughter and the lead carpenter for the renovation, who despises every modern design decision Astrid makes. Jordan is determined to preserve the history of her family’s inn, particularly as the rest of her life is in shambles. When that determination turns into some light sabotage to ruffle Astrid’s perfect little feathers, the showrunners ask them to play up the tension. But somewhere along the way, their dislike for each other evolves into something quite different, and Astrid must decide what success truly means. Is she going to pursue the life that she’s expected to lead or the one that she wants?

First of all it really feels like the author doesn't like Astrid as a character very much, she's constantly turned into the villain, the one doing the bad thing and behaving horribly when usually she's just being human. It was frustrating to have the storyline judging Astrid as harshly as she judged herself, she couldn't do anything right. When the big conflict of the story emerged it was somehow all blamed on Astrid without any acknowledgement all of it was suggested by her love interest, Jordan, in the first place. Multiple times throughout the story Astrid prioritises Jordan's feelings over her own and yet the moment she stumbles and falls on old habits Jordan immediately turns on her. When it comes to selfish characters Jordan might rival even Delilah.
I think I just disagree with the author on what makes an interesting character or romance but this series is just not for me.
Astrid and Jordan are perfect together... destiny.
I'm a total sucker for this series and I can't wait to read the novel about Iris.
Astrid Parker Doesn't Fail is captivating, funny, heartwarming and so freaking romantic.
It's about coming to terms with who you are and who you always wanted to be.
It's about learning to live your own life, and not care about the rest.
It's empowering as a clit necklace.
