    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "My Favorite Romance Series (so far)"

    STORY - Something About You is a sexy romance story commingled with an FBI investigation. Due to animosity between Jack and Cameron, the romance moves slowly in the beginning but kicks into high gear by the end. The murder investigation has a lot going on, too, so there's more than just the romance to keep things interesting.

    I previously listened to Book 3 in this series, titled "About That Night," which is my #1 favorite romance novel to date. This book is almost as good but not quite. I love this series because I like contemporary romances with smart, sexy, witty characters and also the legal/FBI aspect that is the background for the series. Julie James writes only a couple of steamy scenes into her books, which is just the right amount, in my opinion. The books stand alone so they can be read out of order, but Book 3 (which I read first) had some minor references to Cameron and Jack that were supposed to be updates but meant nothing to me because I hadn't heard their story (It's not a big deal, though).

    PERFORMANCE - I wish Karen White would narrate more romance novels. Her natural voice is low enough to actually sound decent when she does a man's voice. I hate it when the couple is getting amorous and Romeo sounds like a wimp!

    OVERALL - (Precise rating 4.5) Highly recommended as long as you like or are not offended by hot scenes and a moderate amount of cursing.

    "Fun times with the FBI"

    Nothing like a handsome strong fearsome FBI agent and tough sexy US attorney go at each other and tackling a strange mystery that puts them both in danger. This is a fun listen not too intense but just enough action to keep you guessing. Karen White does a good job with the narration. It is a good kick off for this series. Remember this a romance series not an erotic tale. So if you want more of a sexual jaunt this story probably won’t satisfy you. But for light romantic tale with a bit of intrigue this should work. Predictable yes but worth the credit for me yes. If you don’t have a credit get it when it goes on sale

    "Good Story, Great Narration"
    What made the experience of listening to Something About You the most enjoyable?

    The narration of this story made it such an easy read. A bad narration can completely ruin a good story, or in this case, a great narration can make you feel like you're hearing this story as if it really happened and the storyteller is eager to tell you all the important details. Karen White did well.

    "Great story, well read"
    What made the experience of listening to Something About You the most enjoyable?

    Awesome narration by Karen White - she brings the characters to life with her reading. Great characters by Julie James - I'm now a fan of hers. There was just the right amount of reality (e.g., crime scene) with romance. Jack is a bit of an alpha male (wee bit ;) and Cameron is a strong woman.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Cameron's personality, but Jack and his partner, Wilkins, were both well drawn too. Even Wilkins added significantly to the story and I found myself looking forward to hearing his story someday. There was spark, humor and intelligence to them all.


    Any additional comments?

    Karen White is awesome, I'll now be looking for her readings even when I don't know the author. I'd follow her performance everywhere right now!

    I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.

    "MUST READ!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would. This is a fun action book with romance thrown in. You can relate to the characters in the story because they go through some of the same struggles of normal everyday people. When it comes to love in this book Cameron and Jack take it to a whole new league.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Something About You?

    When Jack wouldn't leave Cameron after she was shot. Even though it ment letting the shooter get away he wouldn't leave her


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Umm the whole book. It was so good that it had me capture from the beginning.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it is one of those that if you try to put it down you will end up staying up all night to find out what happens to the characters.

    Story
    "I want those 12 hours of my life back"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Neither a good romance nor a believable mystery/crime story.


    What could Julie James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Much better research. Attorney's father was an educated blue blood who died as a simple beat cop in his forties.....totally unbelievable, as is much else.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Made female lead alternately bitchy and weak and wispy......not like a strong successful attorney.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Major disappointment

    "recommend"

    This was my first Julie James book. I enjoyed the story though I did think it started off a little slow. Enjoyed the two main characters and also the supporting characters. Found myself rooting for them and I wouldn't mind meeting a Jack Palace in person! :)

    The narration left a bit to be desired. It wasn't bad enough that I couldn't listen to it but almost. It was impossible for me to loose myself in the story telling because of the narrators constant choppy reading. She emphasizes stops. Almost like reading an old time telegram (or at least how they do it on tv). All her characters do the stopping thing. Her voice isn't bad but the stops really took away from the story for me.

    "Sweet and Fluffy - an enjoyable listen"

    Is Something About You great fiction? Definitely not. But it is a well-written chick fic featuring an intelligent woman and an interesting mystery - worth a few hours of relaxation and enjoyment. The first 10 minutes of evesdropping on someone else having hotel sex is a bit off-putting, but if you can get beyond that the result is worthwhile.

    Story
    "Smart, sassy, suspenseful and sexy"
    What did you love best about Something About You?

    I loved that this book was equal parts solve-the-crime and romance. The two aspects were played off of each other well, while each inching towards their resolutions piece by piece. And I liked that the characters were well grounded, with good backstory, and believable actions based on their personalities - progressing from combative to cooperative to in bed - rather than too-rushed plots I've read where the combativeness turned immediately to lust and characters hopped into bed too quickly.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Something About You?

    My favorite moment was when he deftly guided her (in a stunning dress) from the wedding reception with the comment that Everyone in the room knew where they were going...


    What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

    She narrated beautifully, with distinct and consistent voices, male and female. I never had trouble following dialogue.
