I really didn't know whether or not I'd like this book. It had great reviews but I was a little wary since this is not my usual genre. Needless to say, I'm so glad I took the chance. I absolutely loved every minute of this book. Loved Jack and Cameron. Loved Dillon. And I just hated Cameron's boss (not mentioning any names here), such a creep. Hated the bad guy, too. And I just loved the laugh out loud moments. Great sexual tension and nice, nice, nice sex. I can certainly see myself buying all the books in this series.
As to the narrator: She did a wonderful job. She had the perfect voice for this book. I would definitely listen to her again and again.
Funny, witty and sexy
Cameron because she always has a witty comeback
Jack "saving" Cameron from the intruder in her house...even though in the end she saved him!
Most fun I have had reading (listening) to a book ever. Can't wait to read the rest of the series
This FBI themed series is part suspense, part romance and written with the kind of fast paced, witty dialogue that aspiring writers like myself would love to emulate! It's sassy intrigue with characters you're routing for until the very end. Something About You is the first in this series an features US Assistant District Attorney Cameron Lynde, who witnesses, sort of, a murder is definitely my favorite in the series. You don't necessarily have to read them in order but I highly recommend it.
I was already a fan of narrator Karen White and she doesn't disappoint!
I really enjoyed Something About You. I definitely found it to be a "page turner." The sparks between Cameron & Jack fly off the page. I love that she's a U.S attorney and he's a FBI agent. They make the perfect match. And unlike many of the other books you'll find in the romance genre, this isn't just a story about a guy who saves the girl, but a girl who also saves the guy. Throw in a wedding, a hunky gay best friend, and the constant risk of danger and Julie James delivers a story that, while far from being heavy reading, has just enough complications to not be just another romance novel. Also, I thought Karen White did a good, if not necessarily superb, job as narrator.
Wife to sometimes neglected husband (due to listening to audiobooks) and mother to adult children. I am a relatively recent avid reader/listener, only really starting to read for pleasure a few years ago but now am thoroughly addicted.
I really liked the chemestry between Cameron and Jack, and the secondary characters were extremely entertaining and added quite a bit to the listening experience. Overall I enjoyed this 1st book of the series and look forward to listening to more from this author.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Something About You: FBI-US Attorney Series, Book 1 was my first Julie James read, and I found it to be entertaining, and credit worthy.
In fact, I believe it to be credit worthy enough to take advantage of the Semi-Annual Sale and purchase the next 3 books in the series. I am currently on book 2.
The story is full of action and romance with a protective FBI leading man who captures the heart of the Assistant US Attorney, Cameron Lynde.
This is not a 5 Star Book in my opinion, but it is a solid, enjoyable read.
I had this sitting in my Wish List for a long while. The cover looked "cheesy" to me, but the story and ratings interested me. One day I just downloaded it. It turned out to be a really good story. If you can get passed the first few chapters, the story really takes off from there. I was surprised and very glad I stuck with it.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Julie James has great dialogue you do not want to miss.
lots of them. Secondary characters witty comments are what you will love and it makes this story fun.
Karen's voice is not the best, but she has good timing and this makes up for it. This book is #1 of the three. #3 voice was weak, but again dialogue makes up for it.
this is not a real mystery, but a romantic story with mystery timing. You will listen to it in one day, I did.Enjoy. Now I start #2 book as #1 and #3 were recommended and I listened in that order.
The Party with FBI - This is a fun listen.
It is a chick listen. Just what most women would enjoy
Honestly, I just loved this book. It wasn't fanciful drivel, there were high stakes, and there was genuine emotion and not the whole "We kissed once and now I'm going to marry him!" stuff that seems to be so prevalent in this genre. The only thing I felt was unbelievable was how long it took her to come clean. I'm definitely a new fan of the series.
