But when her sister winds up engaged after a whirlwind courtship, Sidney is thrown into close contact with exactly the kind of sexy playboy she wants to avoid - the gorgeous best man.

She's stuck with him, for better or worse, until her sister walks down the aisle, but that doesn't mean she has to give in to his smooth advances, no matter how tempting they are.... Special agent Vaughn Roberts always gets his man on the job and his woman in bed. So Sidney's refusal to fall for his charms only makes him more determined to win over the cool and confident redhead.

    "Best story yet"

    It's been a few months since I last listened to a Julie James novel and this one reminded me why I just love this author. Her characters are real, the dialog is laugh out loud one minute then makes your chest tighten the next, and the stories make you want to stay in the car until you finish the book. Karen White does a great job narrating, with a perfect sense of timing when delivering a witty phrase. She also does a very good job distinguishing voices, and avoids that annoying gruff whisper that some female narrators use when trying to express a male voice. If I could give this a 6 I would!

    "Almost Perfect"

    I loved practically everything about this romantic tale. It's the story of two folk in their 30s coming together after disliking each other. The romance unfolds perfectly; there was no rushing nor the constant pushing and pulling against what they want. That's not to say that the coming together was without angst; it was there but appropriately so. I also liked that the h, Sidney, was the white-collar employee who made lots of money, while the H, Vaughn, was a basic, blue-collar FBI agent. And there was only one perfect family but not so much drama that you're weighed down by it and find a HEA hard to envision. To add to the great mix of romance, lil' angst, and good sex--about 2 sex scenes--there was the perfect amount of light humor.

    The only reason this story is not a 5 for me is that I generally like more struggle or an element of darkness to a story. So this light romance was super smile-worthy, but I only want so much of it at a time. Still, I look forward to my next Julie James book. It was great.

    Story
    "This is what a contemporary romance should be!"
    Where does It Happened One Wedding rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is way at the top for contemporary romances I've listened to. It felt fresh and modern, witty and relevant.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It Happened One Wedding?

    The scene in the beginning when Sidney is telling Vaughn exactly the type of man he is. That girl chewed him up and spat him out in such a elegant and accurate way, you couldn't help but feel bad for him. Then Vaughn turns around and sets her down in just as classy a way you knew he could keep up with her!


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

    She has the perfect sense of timing for the funny moments as well the serious ones. You can see the characters individual quirks when she performs them. There is never the feeling the narrator didn't get the story with White.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love happens, even when you think you aren't looking.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the combo of James and White so much the audiobooks are an auto buy for me. There is no James without White!

    Any additional comments?

    And every book had laugh-out-loud moments, which was wonderful. However, I must warn you that only the first book Something About You really had any kind of real suspense involving both the hero and the heroine. The second book A Lot Like Love had a little. But the last 3 did not involve the heroine in any case, mostly. Not enough to mention, anyway. That being said there was still undercover work and all that being done by the FBI heroes. AND they were all just wonderful love stories.This one was with Vaughn and Sidney and it was another great story. The only thing I really didn't like in any of the books was the lack of passion. Oh, he'd think about her great legs in her heels or the low cut of her top, but that's about it really. There were no hot, steamy thoughts going on. But, then the awesome sex would come along, which really had no build up to it.
    Over all, this was a great series.

    As to the narrator: I liked Ms. White's narration in all the book because she seemed to get better and better. In this one she did an absolutely wonderful job. I was worried about even buying this one because I didn't like Vaughn's voice in the last book but I decided to give it a try. Ms. White changed his voice just a tiny bit but it was enough to make it perfect. I've listened to almost all of Ms. White's samples of the books she's narrated, going all the way back to 2011 and I can honestly say she's come a long way since then. She could become one of my favorite narrators. And I'm really picky about my narrators. If a female reader can't even try to sound man-ish she's not worth listening to. IMO

    "BOOOORING"

    Was Vaughn a Special Agent for the FBI? I'm not sure. It wasn't mentioned enough in the story. This book was below average. I was bored to tears. Vaughn and Sydney didn't have much chemistry, either.

    The narrator is average. Not my favorite, but she grows on you as the book goes on.

    when our hero tells our lead, what a good time they will have together

    Ms White makes this series come to life, so audible or ms james, do not change readers as I only pre buy this series due to ms white reading of them. She is that good.

    "Very disappointing"
    Would you try another book from Julie James and/or Karen White?

    Yes, I love the way she tells a story


    What was most disappointing about Julie James’s story?

    This being the FBI/US Attorney series without any danger or suspense

    Love all the FBI guys, and Cade too. Have followed them through the whole series.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there is more to this series coming, but I wish she would return to the premise of books 1 and 2
