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 admitte...

  • Chelsea (chelseadolling reads)
    This was precious. The ending was a little contrived, but I had such a blast reading this that I didn't even care. Also, I desperately want some casserole now???????
  • Stacey is Sassy
    I really needed this...I haven't laughed that hard in a long time...ON THE TRAIN...OUT LOUD! Seriously, my fellow passengers must think I'm an absolute loon. You can pass off the odd smirk and even a big smile once in a while, but full-on busting out laughing, not so much. I just couldn't help myself, though. Heidi's Guide to Four Letter Words was OTT silly but so bloody good. I beg you Tara Sivec and Andi Arndt, please, do it again and again and...

    This book reminds me so much of Meghan Quinn and Jana Aston. Quirky, fun, sweet and weird. Weird in a good way. This is my first audio book by Miss Sivec. I am not disappoint. I think she writes it for all of the audio book narrators. Especially romance genre. Heidi is fired from her boring job as kinder garden teacher. Then she had this idea to start podcast about steamy romance. And it is hilarious. To be honest, listening about podcast, I done...
  • Natasha is a Book Junkie
    The perfect blend of feels and giggles, this heartwarming, sexy, and at times hysterically funny tale of a darling former kindergarten teacher blossoming from a shy, sexually repressed wallflower into a confident young woman in charge of her own life and desires, is the ultimate feel-good Romantic Comedy. The story unfolds both through a first-person point of view, as well as a hilarious podcast where the heroine slowly breaks through her own inh...
  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    First, Andi Arndt is a brilliant narrator. I love her voice and she really brings the story to life. I’m a big fan. As for the story itself? It was very funny in some parts, adorably cute in others and awkwardly embarrassing in the rest. I do struggle a bit with the embarrassing parts. Some of the scenes are just really far fetched, but that was the point. Overall, very funny!
  • Jacob Proffitt
    This is possibly the funniest book I've ever, er, listened to. Since the narrator co-wrote it, I suspect that it isn't an accident that the narration perfectly fits the characters to pull off some hilarious scenes. And without compromising the characters or story.This turns out to be more chick-lit than romance as the story is mainly about Heidi growing into herself once her career as a teacher tanks. I loved spending time with her on the journey...
  • ☕️Kimberly
    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...

    Release Date: December 3, 2019 Actual Rating: 4 stars Romantic Comedy Tara Sivec has been one of my favorite authors for a long time. After reading her HILARIOUS novel, SEDUCTION & SNACKS I became an instant fan and haven't stopped reading her books since. It’s the laugh out loud and relatable moments that suck me in and I honestly can’t get enough. If you’re a romcom fan and haven’t had the chance to read Tara's work you’re missing o...

    Beyond 5 Whoopdidoo StarsTara Sivec and Andi Arndt teamed up to write this delightful story and it is narrated brilliantly by Andi. I snapped this up on Audible and found every excuse available to do jobs round the house just so I could keep listening. Heidi Larson is a 25yr old woman who is let go from her Kindergarten Teacher post and in searching for a new job ends up working in admin for a company that records audible books....specifically er...
  • Storme
    So, I’m so pumped to have picked up this audible book from the popular section. I was pulled by the cover alone, and then the title definitely sealed the deal. Once I started it, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the story. I want more from this author and the narrator. Tara and Andie, please make all of the audio books because I desperately need them in my life.Heidi has been laid off as kindergarten teacher, and she applies for a new jo...
  • Danielle (The Blonde Likes Books)
    I really liked the premise of this story, but the main character was so awkward it was cringe worthy! I’m sure there are 25 year olds in real life who are equally innocent and awkward, but I’ve never met any, so it didn’t ring realistic to me in that sense. That said, I adore Andi Arndt as a narrator, and have listened to several books she’s narrated, many of which have steamy scenes, so it was fun to listen to her in character fumbling t...

I know the Tara Sivec/Andi Arndt collaboration would be good, but I honestly had no idea how good!

    This was at times cute, weird and awkward but still fun. The romance took a while to develop and the deal was sealed in the blink of an eye but it was a pretty enjoyable storyH went on a date with OW but nothing happened
  • Lisa-Books Smiles
    3.5 stars. rounding up for all the laughs.
  • Sarah
    This was adorable, so sweet and silly! The humor and some of the Minnesota accents were both over the top at times, but in the best way--and as a Minnesotan, I totally appreciated the Minnesota humor! It was hard to believe Heidi's level of naivete at times, but she was so sweetly earnest, and it was so fun to listen to her gain confidence. Highly recommend if you want a lighthearted listening experience that will make you laugh.
  • Angela (Reading Frenzy Book Blog)
    4.5 starsAudiobook ReviewHeidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words is the delightful love child of Tara Sivec and Andi Arndt. Tara has enticed me with her wicked sense of humor in previous books, and Andi is one of my favorite audiobook narrators. Who better, then, to bring us a romantic comedy about a virtuous small town gal and her inadvertent erotica podcast?Of course, I listened to the audiobook. Andi Arndt narrating her own words? I mean, come on...

    4.5/5 Such a fun listen, hilarious and the narration was amazing!
  • Carole (Carole's Random Life in Books)
    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.Oh my gosh, this book was so much fun! This book caught my eye when I saw the cover prior to its release. It sounded like a funny story so I was somewhat interested. When I noticed that Andi Arndt narrated and co-authored the book, I knew that I would have to give it a try. I am so glad that I did. I am not sure what I expected but there was a certain magic to this book. It is safe to...
  • Alaina
    This was so cute.Heidi's Guide to Four Letter Words was a pretty enjoyable audiobook. I feel like I flew through the 6 hour book. It doesn't hurt that I enjoyed meeting all the characters in this one either. Heidi was simply adorable. She is a kindergarten teacher who ends up having the hots for one of her neighbors .. well, maybe I should say was a teacher. Yeah, she lost her job but have no fear! She is now working at an audio studio, which hon...
  • Sarah/DragonflyReads
    I adored this book! I honestly think that Andi Arndt's narration was just so much more passionate than other's I've heard. That has to be because she co-wrote with Tara Sivec. With that said, can Tara Sivec do no wrong? Where's my Tator Tot Hot Dish!?
  • Beth McCraw

    If I had to sum up this book with one word it would be cringe. So goddamn cringey. I’m also super disappointed because I remember Tara Sivec’s Seduction and Snacks as one of the funniest books I’ve ever read, and had high hopes for this one. Also, I wouldn’t even consider this romance since there was barely any focus on the romantic relationship and more on Heidi’s personal growth, if you can even call it that. It would probably take me...

    Update now out on Kindle !!Very funny. I just had to get this when I saw that these two wrote this.Andi Arndt did a great job as Heidi. I just love her Minnesota accent. I love the regional humor. The characters were all so funny. Heidi- I mean Andi did a great job even the guys' voices. OMG. My mom used to embarrass me, but nothing like this! One thing after another. This is slow burn and the heat takes a back seat to the comedy. That's ok, cuz ...

    Yas. My first one star of the year!! I was getting a bit confused as to why I hadn’t found a terrible book yet to vent my annoyance at and blow off some steam. Seems like I spoke too soon.The book was simply just... irritating. Like a pesky stain on your white blouse that doesn’t ever come off. And never will. I just wanted the non existent plot line to end before it even started.I’m speaking from my personal preferences here. I enjoy readi...
  • Topastro
    The premise of this book really intrigued and it started off great but unfortunately my eyes were rolling throughout the book and I had to push myself to finish. Our heroine Heidi take a journey to sexual self discovery by diving deep into erotica podcasting all the while lusting after her hot neighbor, Brent. Heidi was supposed to be quirky and endearing but I found her to be juvenile and beyond cringy. She had no spine towards her rude and cart...
  • Alla
    Where should I start...Heidi is A. HOT. MESS, but an adorable hot mess. Shes shy, clumsy, nervous around men she likes and let me say "a prude".In this story we get to watch her try to find herself, go out of her comfort zone and make attempts to make something more out of the crush she has on her neighbor and her journey is just HILARIOUS at times. I laughed so much and out loud and I got so embarrased for her sake at times that I felt it like i...
  • Debra Brownstein
    2.5I was thrilled when I saw this:Catchy title.Fun synopsis.My favorite female narrator. But here I am again, finding a highly rated book that I found disappointing. Whereas everyone else loved Heidi, I thought she was just too clueless and immature. And this was the first time I didn’t like Andi Arndt’s narration. Our main characters accent and intonation grated on my nerves (Is that supposed to be a Minnesota accent?). I truly thought I wou...
  • MiniMe
    I’m sure readers liked Heidi and found her cute, relatable and downright funny. I found her to be sexually repressed, immature and generally annoying. And sadly it didn’t get any better even after she became more confident and got her guy.
  • Grace
    My audio review.Story: 5 starsUff da.What do you get when you pair one of the best Romantic Comedy writers with one of the Best Narrators in Romance? Well, you get a hilarious audio treat, obviously!This story features one Heidi Larsen, a young woman who is clueless about everything sexy or erotic. No, she isn't a virgin, but she might as well be. This is a girl who can't even say the word cock. After losing her job as an elementary teacher in a ...
