    "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.

    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.

    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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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!
