    "Great Series!"
    What made the experience of listening to A Lot Like Love the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the storyline and the characters - although this was wasn't quite as suspenseful as the first one in this series - I still really enjoyed it very much.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters and also I enjoyed learning a bit more about wine industry.


    What does Karen White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does a really great job of bringing these characters alive.


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

    Yes and I did just that!


    Any additional comments?

    Hope that you get the rest of the series on here!

    Story
    "Fast-paced enjoyable crime-investigating-romance"

    I tore through this one at an incredible pace, especially considering that whole work day thing and a few hours of dance classes which happened to interrupt my reading...

    I loved the leading couple. They each had strong character, and I caught myself laughing aloud in public at their quips and sarcasm. I was a bit on edge the whole time, just waiting for something to go wrong with the investigation, waiting for a shoe to drop... and even felt as if I had predicted how it would... so when it seemed it did I was waiting for the other - and having read some more intense crime books than this I was seriously worried about any potential climactic showdown with bad guys. Without giving spoilers, I was spared the intensity, and the level of the suspense and danger in the climactic scene matched pretty well with the tone of the book (and not as perilous as what Jack and Cameron faced previously, or so it seemed to me).

    Anyway, it was fun, to watch them go from antagonistic to fake dating, to a whirlwind romantic weekend. My only issue was that I didn't particularly like the dialogue when they, er, became intimate. I lack appreciation for dirty talk in real life too, but I have not always minded it in fiction... just something about the style here rubbed me the wrong way. *shrugs*

    Supporting characters were great too, loved the family members and friends.
    Narration was good, fit the tone of the story well, and usually captured their emotions perfectly. The male voices were a bit unsatisfying and indistinguishable. Also had a bit of trouble telling when thoughts were internal or spoken aloud when interspersed with the dialogue, but it was usually denoted afterwards when it was only said in her head.

    Very witty and sexy. Fast-paced enjoyable crime-investigating-romance.

    "Very enjoyable story."
    If you could sum up A Lot Like Love in three words, what would they be?

    Good character development.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator is great for female voices, but she's quite bad at male voices. She makes them all sound like a pompous John Wayne, and initially I had to focus on enjoyment of the story to get through it. And remember that I had purchased the series, so it's likely that I'll be just as annoyed w/ the remaining two books.

    Story
    "I like the premise"

    A Lot Like Love has a great premise. FBI enlists the help of a billionaires daughter to cause a diversion so the FBI can bug a local business owner believed to be laundering money. In return, they will get her brother out of prison, where he is serving a sentence for hacking into Twitter.

    I liked the story and the characters were well drawn, but the narrator did not do justice to the male lead.

    I think I would recommend reading this as opposed to listening or, as I did, get the whisper-sync version so you can give the characters the voices you like.

    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!

    Story
    "I love this series!"

    STORY (romance) - A Lot Like Love is another fun romp in this great romance series. I listened out of order (due to sales), so this is my third book. I've loved them all, but About That Night (#3) is my favorite. You don't have to listen to them in order, but I would recommend it if you can. The characters are related either by profession or family so their development continues from book to book, though each book is actually one romance and can stand on its own. This series has it all -- smart characters, clever dialogue, steamy sex and interesting background stories involving big-time FBI investigations. You can't go wrong here.

    PERFORMANCE - Nice job. I've heard a few female narrators who perform more masculine male voices, but she does a pretty good job.

    OVERALL - If you like hot contemporary romances, start with Book 1 of this series.

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

    Story
    "Another good book Julie"
    Would you listen to A Lot Like Love again? Why?

    Yes I would. Unlike the first book this one takes you primarily from the male's perspective. It is a different take on love. When it comes to these two communication seems to be key but neither one seems to know how to do it well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Lot Like Love?

    When Nick sits Jordan down in the back of the cop car and tells her that she screwed up his live and that he is in love with her. Probably one of the most heartfelt moments in the entire book.


    Which character – as performed by Karen White – was your favorite?

    Jordan's brother Kyle. To me he seems like the type of guy a girl would be luck to get.


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

    When Nick brought Kyle clothes after he got out of jail. He may be interested in Jordan but he still remembered her brother and the things he may need.

    "Fun Series!"
    Would you listen to A Lot Like Love again? Why?

    Yes, I would. I really enjoyed the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nick, of course. Julie James makes her male characters desirable.


    Which character – as performed by Karen White – was your favorite?

    I didn't have favorite character in particular that Karen performed. She performed all characters perfectly. Karen White really brought the book to life, Loved her!


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

    I love when the lead characters first meet.


    Any additional comments?

    Great, fun series!

    "Don't miss this one!!!! EXCELLENT!"

    I preferred this to the first book in the series. I adored this one. Though I am a little over the wine lover background...

    Funny and sexy! Karen White is fantastic! I love the Julie James/Karen White combo!!

    Story
    "Story line light and fun but reader awful."

    Basically the story was good but the reader was so awful I almost stopped listening a number of times. Her interpretation of Nick was so bad it was hard to tolerate him, never mind see him as a romantic figure. He sounded like a stupid thug. When I took the reader's voice out of a conversation, I tried to "hear" Nick a different way that could at least give me a chance to imagine Jordan falling for him. I would totally recommend getting a new reader and offering the book again.
