    "Good Book"

    I enjoyed this book. It is fairly predictable but entertaining with very likable characters. It was a little lightweight but has enough drama and humor to keep it interesting. The narrator is good, maybe a little overdone in the sex scenes but not bad.

    "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.

    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?

    "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

    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.

    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 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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Julie James has great dialogue you do not want to miss.


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

    lots of them. Secondary characters witty comments are what you will love and it makes this story fun.


    What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
