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.
This book came alive by the narrator. Reading it would have been good, but listening to it was great.
All of the characters were well developed and likeable. The author's style reminded me of Suzanne Brockmann, whom I LOVE!
She was able to depict men as well as women effortlessly. Sometimes you have to get use to a narrator, or they will have trouble with one gender or the other. Karen White was the reason this book got 5 stars and not 4. I will now check out other books she has narrated.
Yes, I loved spending time with these characters. It all came together for me in this book.
I really like the sense of humor in the book. These were not one dimensional characters. I could see where the author could write a story about each one, and I would like that. Truly an enjoyable listen!!
I have recommended this book to several friends. I knew that they would love the humor.
I guess I would say the other Julie James books. Practice makes perfect is my favorite.
She is fun to listen to.
To laughter- yes, many times.
You will love this book!
The book is well written.
It was just so average. Change the names and occupations and it could have been any of a number of romance books out on the market.
I guess my standards have been set by Jennifer Crusie and Susan Elizabeth Phillips - I just expect more out of a book.
This book was so slow to get started I almost lost interest. I think the narrator made it worse. I love Julie James books and have read them and enjoyed them but this audible version made me wonder if it was the writing or the reading. It didn't seem like there was any real chemistry between the two main characters and in the end I didn't really care what happened to them. I think it was supposed to have some suspense with the final scene but it fell short. I wish I hadn't used my credit on this one.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
There just was not enough here to hold my interest...romance was skim-action was slim, this was too little.
Staying overnight in a luxury hotel, Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde overhears a high-profile murder involving a U.S. senator. Special Agent Jack Pallas is assigned to the investigation - the same Jack Pallas who still blames her for nearly ruining his career three years ago. Now the pair will have to put their rocky past behind them, focus on the case at hand - and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension.
Not bad, a solid performance...but nothing exceptional.
Boredom, disappointment & frustration...about 1/2 way through started listening at 1.5x speed.
This was SO slow...like the 'little engine that could' but this book couldn't. I kept waiting for things to get going but they never did.
This series was NOT for me and I will not purchase anymore...not even if on sale.
