    "It took forever!"

    This book was just poorly plotted out. It was more of a Mystery novel than a romance novel.
    The narration was good.

    "LOVED IT"
    Would you listen to Something About You again? Why?

    Already listen twice, it has a plausible and believable story.


    What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

    I don't really like Karen White, there's something about her, she always sounds like she's shaky. However she does a lot better than many other narrators.


    Any additional comments?

    I have finally found a new author and I love Julie James. If you like Julie Garwood you will love this author. I am going to purchase other books now.

    "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.

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    Story
    "Assertive heroine and sexy, sexy alpha hero"

    Setting: Contemporary, Chicago
    Genre: Romantic suspense
    Loved the characters and their history is a good background. They were just getting into an I'm-interested-in-you-in-a-romantic way point in a working relationship when Assistant US Attorney General for Illinois Cameron Lynde did something that caused FBI agent Jack Pallas to go off about her on national TV. The budding mutual interest died on the vine with Jack's anger/hatred and his transfer to Nebraska (can you say hinterlands?). Fast forward 3 years and Jack is back in Chicago and his first case, the murder of an escort associated with a US Senator, involves Cameron as a material witness. The suspense fuels the romance which, in turn, amps the suspense. This is a great combination of likable characters and interesting plot with Karen White's excellent narration. She does both male and female characters well, and she doesn't skimp in the secondary people.

    This was worth the credit and time I spent.

    Any additional comments?

    Great listen! Had just enough mystery to a murder that was witnessed...sort of....
    What exactly did Cameron see and not see, does the killer know, can the FBI protect her while they search? But of all the questions.....why oh why did the FBI have to assign Jack to this case...of all cases...why does the man who told the world I had my head up my *bleep* have to be the one to keep my safety, and truly...will he even try?

    "Awesome book.."
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "I'm so glad I stumbled onto this 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!

    "Fun & Sexy Novel"

    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.

    "Romance with chemestry!"

    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.

    "Something about Julie James’ Books"

    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.
