Description

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “A beautiful, emotional story about two damaged souls making a connection over late night phone calls.”-  Goodreads review

Some scars go further than skin deep…

1988 doesn’t end well for Jessica Abraham. In just one week she turns thirty, loses her day job, and loses the role of Ophelia to a younger actress. Rallying, she goes after a part at a theater outside of the city, but the director’s plan to hide her beauty behind hair, makeup and wardrobe from Cosmo’s “Don’t” column shakes her confidence to the core.

For the first time in her acting career, she won’t be able to rely on her carefully managed physical charms. Only her craft will count.

On a snowy night in January of 1989, a woman calls into DJ Callihan Alonso’s alt-rock radio show at the end of her commute. He asks her to call back the next night, and the next, just so he’ll know she’s home safe. There’s something about her voice that has him wanting more, but the longer they talk, the closer she gets. Compromising each and every wall he’s built around his heart.

If two lonely people fall in love over late-night phone calls, will meeting face-to-face make them, or break them?

In this heartfelt, slow-burn retro romcom, it may be the end of a decade, but it’s the beginning of a love story.

AUDIOBOOK REVIEWS

★★★★★ “The story is shared in alternating POVs with Vanessa Edwin (VE) portraying Jess’s POV and Eric Michael Summerer (EMS) performing Cal’s POV. Both are well suited for their main character, and both are equally gifted portraying the opposite gender. VE gives Jess a perkiness with an edge, but can adjust for Jess’s weariness and frustration. EMS nails Cal’s deep, DJ voice, and adjusts it flawlessly between his on-air voice and his “regular Cal” voice. Both narrators come with a vast array of character voices, making each unique and fitting. They both nail dialogue, able to create a realism of many different people all talking together. The pair works well together. Their voices and performances compliment one another. And as an added bonus, each chapter has a retro audio introduction like an ad from the radio, and even one from 80’s comedian Bobcat Goldthwait. You Spin Me is an absolute joy to listen to. The romance is heart-felt and emotionally satisfying because the characters are relatable and three-dimensional.” That’s What I’m Talking About blog

★★★★★ “I loved the book, but the narration is amazing. Vanessa Edwin and Eric Michael Summerer are absolutely perfect as Jess & Cal. They both do a fantastic job with voices, emotions, and accents. Summerer’s DJ voices are particularly spot on and the impersonation of Bobcat Goldthwaite had me rolling. I was completely immersed in the world Grey has created and I want her to write another book for Cal & Jess just so I can hear more of them by Edwin & Summerer.” Rellim Reads

★★★★★ Refreshingly original. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I started this book and ended up absolutely loving it. It was sweet, emotional, angsty and heartbreakingly good… I listened to the audio of this book and it was superb. It was literally one of the most engrossing audios that I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. The narrators were superb and really brought the story and the radio station to life. I felt like I was living the story.” Bookbub review

★★★★★ The 1988 setting is a gem to the people who lived through those years and to the younger generation to get a taste of what they were like. Every chapter starts with little soundbites that introduce the shows or the ads in radio stations and its spot on!” Goodreads review

★★★★★ As usual, the author offers a unique experience in audio, this time with the short jingles and introductions the narrators do amazingly. After all, the setting is a radio station, audio is everything! And this here is a top listen.” Goodreads review
