Cowritten by USA Today best-selling author Tara Sivec and award-winning narrator Andi Arndt, a hysterically funny, heartfelt romance about starting over and taking chances.

Nothing good ever comes from drinking a box of wine alone. So when I decided to entertain my drunken self by setting up some hand-me-down podcasting equipment and reading the steamy parts from romance novels, I never thought anyone would actually listen. The fact that I admitted my huge crush on my sexy next door neighbor made the whole thing even more mortifying. But sometimes life surprises you, and that’s how my podcast, Heidi’s Discount Erotica, was born.

Now I, Heidi Larsen, a sweet former kindergarten teacher in Waconia, Minnesota, lead a scandalous double life reading erotic novels to the listening world. And with each episode, I find myself embracing my new alter ego more and more. Now I’m starting to feel more comfortable in my own skin and do things I never would have dreamed of - like kissing my neighbor.

Look out, Waconia, because Heidi’s on the loose! She’s in your ears, in your hearts, and down your pants...wait, that didn’t sound as good as it did in my head. Well, you get the picture, don’tcha know!

Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words written by Tara Sivec and Andi Arndt who also narrates the book was an absolute hoot don’tcha know!

This adorkable, funny, naughty, sexy, laugh out loud RomCom kept me up into the wee hours giggling into my pillow.

The story takes place in Waconia, Minnesota and tells the story of Heidi Larsen, a sweet kindergarten teacher who dresses in unicorn smock dresses and whose mother covered her ears whenever someone said a naughty word. She doesn’t curse, reads Amish romances and has the hots for her neighbor. She is also miserable.

When she loses her job as a kindergarten teacher due to budget cuts she decides to make a change. The first order of business is a new job as the receptionist at an audio studio. Her she discovers they narrate steamy romances!

Hand-me down podcast equipment, the blues, a box of wine and a steamy novel lead to the birth of Heidi’s Discount Erotica podcast where she bares her soul…. and the transformation of Heidi begins.

I loved this audio. Heidi was hilarious as were secondary characters like her parents..oh my lord her parents! But alas, spoilers darling. I think we will all see our mums in there somewhere! The romance was awkward, sweet, genuine and oh so hot.

The whole story had a genuineness to it. One can’t help but root for Heidi. Go Heidi! Filled with growth, morals, personal discovery, and life lessons it made me smile.

I cannot forget to mention Andi Arndt’s narration. From her Minnesota accent to the hilarious podcasts she brought Heidi to life bringing a whole new level of fun and sexy-adorkableness to this story.

A mix of women’s fiction, sweet romance, comedy, and steamy fiction this story had it all. So now I am walking around laughing at ferns and yelling Uff Da! Come find out why. Grab your copy and a box of wine, you won’t be sorry!
