⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This fake relationship, childhood star crush had me from the very start… Grey's pick of Amy McFadden and Alastair Haynesbridge could not have been more spot on! I think she heard their voices as she was writing this one.” - Patty, Bookbub

Narrated by Amy McFadden and Alastair Haynesbridge

Length: 9 hrs and 12 mins

Fake relationship? As if.


I don’t need a man to complete me, but to get my tubes tied before I turn thirty, I do need a husband. So when former child TV star Lukas Keith's desperate for a favor, the exchange of my services for his seems like a great idea.


I help him relearn how to drive a car, and he acts as my fiancé for a few doctor’s visits.


What could go wrong?


Bingeing 90’s TV shows like Seinfeld and Ally McBeal have you jonesing for a time when email and cell phones were strange new things, and an app was something you ate before dinner? Then this steamy, slow burn, fake relationship, entertainment biz romantic comedy is just what the doctor ordered.

Love These Two

I Want It That Way is a great listen. I like these characters, I really like Dani's sweet and innocent demeanor. I like the driving lessons and the way it brought them so much closer. This whole book is delightful with it's southern charm. I've listened to all of Karen Grey's books. They are the kind of books that have you wishing that the characters were your friends and pulls you in, making you want more. I really like the 90s so maybe that's why I like these books so much.

Sweet and Engaging!

This is the third book in the Carolina Classic series, a throwback series. I love this series! Luke and Dani's fake relationship is beautifully written, sweet, and engaging. I liked the humor in the story. I loved to follow them in their slow burn journey to love. Looking forward to listening to the next book in the series. Amy McFadden and Alastair Haynesbridge did an outstanding job bringing this story to life. I enjoyed it. I highly recommend this series.

Great story with awesome narration

Updated 8/23/23 with audiobook review.

Amy McFadden and Alastair Haynesbridge gave a wonderful performance! They gave the t emotion, voice and personality to these characters. I love how narrators give the reader/listener a whole new experience with a book through audio. This is my new favorite Karen Grey book! Dany and Lukas are an amazing pair that take us on an adventure of big life decision, taking chances and ultimately an amazing love story. Dany is a strong, independent woman who knows what she wants. She’s on a journey to find a doctor to help her get what she needs. Lukas is embarking on a new adventure but some baggage is holding him back from being all that he wants to be. Dany and Lukas have known each other casually over the years but begin a deeper friendship, learn to trust one another with their life stories and realize how much they can help one another. What starts out as a casual agreement turns into an amazing love story filled with laughs, fears and a lot of patience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fake relationship/celebrity romance with 90s fun

I liked that it was a fake relationship/celebrity/90s style book. I thought I would just start with a couple chapters, but I ended up using the rain outside to justify reading the entire book in one day (it's raining, so why not?). I had previously read the other books in the series and I like the additional character development that happens over the course of a series vs. meeting characters in just one book. I'm already looking forward to Whit's story. I've read all of the Carolina Classics books, and while I Want It That Way could be read as a stand alone, it's part of a series of interconnected characters that appear in each of the stories.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Amy McFadden and new-to-me Alastair Haynesbridge. The narrators did a fantastic job. They added another dimension to the story to make it feel new again even though I had previously read the book.

I received a copy of the book at my request, and the opinions here are my own.

Beautiful slow-burn classic!

I connected with this book on so many levels it became very personal for me. I really enjoyed the story, the journey, and the fun steamy moments with the overall message that choosing to not have children is okay. This book tackles some tough subjects in a way that is engaging and drives a great story. The characters are endearing and believable and the story flows through time. Lukas and Dani complement each other and I love the slow burn as they reveal more over time and bring out the best. I am really enjoying the Carolina Classic series and look forward to more from this author.

Amy McFadden & Alastair Haynesbridge are excellent performers who really bring all of the characters to life. They both did a great job with all of the characters and experiences. I’m so glad that Karen chooses great narrators!
