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. Only what starts out as a battle of wills ends up as a serious play for her heart. Because the one woman who refuses to be caught may be the only one Vaughn can't live without.

    "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!

    Story
    "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!

    "Mistaken About the Story"

    I thought this would be a story about a wedding -- with a mystery as a large portion of the story. Boy, was I wrong! This is a modern romance with all the sexy(?) details graphically described, little plot, and a sense of 'why did I waste my money?' at the end.

    "Polar opposites attract!"
    Any additional comments?

    Sidney has gone through a bad breakup with her ex fiancé and Vaughn has sworn off relationships completely. I have to admit that some of the coincidences are far fetched in the story but on the other hand, there were some of the sweetest gestures in it too.

    By the way, is it just me or all the sex scenes are almost identical in James' books?

    Fun read, as always!

    Story
    "Cute rom com"
    Would you consider the audio edition of It Happened One Wedding to be better than the print version?

    Yes, that's due to Karen White's narration.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Vaughn is dry and sarcastic and made me laugh.


    Have you listened to any of Karen White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, she has narrated this entire series. She really adds to the stories.


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

    I divided it up into several.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the story, it was cute and flowed, but it didn't have the suspense of the first that I enjoyed so much. I would recommend it for someone looking for a cute rom com with fun characters and some hot love scenes.;)

    Story
    "Sexy and fun. Already listened multiple times."

    I have not loved all of the other books in this series but this one gives me hope. The dialogue and interaction between the two leads is lots of fun and entertaining. And since I have found some of the FBI scenarios in previous books to be a bit contrived, I appreciated that they were used sparingly in this book.

    Not sure if JJ will continue with this series but if she does, I hope the future books are like this one.

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

    yes, I love all the Julie James read by Karen white. fast pace,funny and makes you feel good after the story ends. This was good, but only because Ms White knows how to execute the dialogue to it's best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    our hero sees the light of true love...or at least in a romance novel.


    Which scene was your favorite?

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


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "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.
