    "Great story, characters and narrator!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Something About You to be better than the print version?

    This book came alive by the narrator. Reading it would have been good, but listening to it was great.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the characters were well developed and likeable. The author's style reminded me of Suzanne Brockmann, whom I LOVE!


    What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

    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.


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

    Yes, I loved spending time with these characters. It all came together for me in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    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!!

    "Terrific series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this book to several friends. I knew that they would love the humor.


    What other book might you compare Something About You to and why?

    I guess I would say the other Julie James books. Practice makes perfect is my favorite.


    What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

    She is fun to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    To laughter- yes, many times.


    Any additional comments?

    You will love this book!

    "Average at best"
    What did you like best about Something About You? What did you like least?

    The book is well written.


    What was most disappointing about Julie James???s story?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I guess my standards have been set by Jennifer Crusie and Susan Elizabeth Phillips - I just expect more out of a book.

    "Just okay"

    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.

    "FLOP-I Just Could NOT Get Into This Book/Series"
    What could Julie James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    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.


    Did Karen White do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Not bad, a solid performance...but nothing exceptional.


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

    Boredom, disappointment & frustration...about 1/2 way through started listening at 1.5x speed.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    This book was fairly entertaining and the characters were interesting. Not a real thriller though.
