When a psychic tells Natalie Nixon her life is about to be upended by a mysterious stranger, she laughs it off. After all, she has everything she's ever wanted - a successful bakery, the perfect boyfriend, and the keys to her dream house. Who could possibly make her want to throw all that away?
Then Miles Haas comes back to town. But he's no stranger - they've known each other since high school. Plus he's around only for the summer, he's still a shameless playboy, and he makes a living writing articles for a men's magazine with titles like "Should You Bang the Boss' Daughter? A Flowchart" and "Butt Stuff for Beginners: A Field Guide".
Except he makes her laugh like no one else, smells like heaven, and wears those panty-melting glasses. But he's not the man of her dreams, and she's not about to abandon everything she's worked so hard for just for a little fun. She's not that crazy...or is she?

"Some Sort of Crazy is five stars." (Helena Hunting, author of Pucked)
I'd purchased this without reading the details because book 1 was INCREDIBLE, only to realize this was about a different Nixon sister! Although this book was good, it wasn't off the charts great like the first. I loved Miles' character, super funny, and his kink was EPIC and oh so delicious to read, whereas Natalie was little tame for my taste. All that said, I give this one a strong 4-stars because overall it was well written, and I'm a sucker for love stories that are born of lifelong friendships like Miles' and Natalie's.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This is a really enjoyable light friends to lovers story - Natalie and Miles grew up together, have shared so many memories and, as adults, realize the other's strengths and flaws. Natalie is loving, determined, single-minded and successful, she's got her own Bakery, owns her own house and has had one boyfriend for the last ten years.... but she's hoping that he'll be popping the question real soon. Deep down Natalie knows things aren't right between them but she thinks it will change..... well it does but not in the way she was thinking because her best friend Miles comes back into her life just when she needs him most.
Miles is a handsome, funny, no strings Playboy who writes blogs all about his many and varied sexcapades and, although he's always fantasized about Natalie, he's never done anything about it because she wants the whole marriage, white picket fence, love and babies life and he's just exactly where he wants to be - carefree, loving life and with definitely no commitments. But when Natalie needs cheering up he's there to help and it's not long before the sexual chemistry that's been simmering between them for years dramatically boils over.... and the outcome is a sexfest that neither one was expecting.... but both thoroughly enjoyed. However, Miles can't see himself changing even though he loves Natalie and Natalie doesn't want to change Miles even though she loves him too - sentiments that neither one shared with the other.... but then the impossible happens that changes everything.
This was such a fun listen and very very sexy too as these two lovers enjoyed dirty talking, witty banter and a close bond that only they were destined to destroy. It was light, didn't have a lot of angst and was slightly predictable but even that didn't spoil this charming and oh so addictive listen. They were soul-mates and perfect for each other but both of them had to bend a little before either of them could see it. There was romance, lots and lots of sex with a bit of lighthearted bondage/spanking and tender times too as these two childhood friends finally turned their relationship into a loving lifelong commitment with a sweet HEA. Loveable main characters, two close loving Sisters and the update of Skylar and Sebastian's wedding (book 1). Told from both POV's, the narration was really good and this could easily be a standalone listen.... but book 1 is equally as good too.
Worth a credit? A contemporary feel good romance that I grinned my way through and left me with a smile on my face... so YES, IMO, a very creditworthy listen.
A reviewer at Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I don't go anywhere without a book -ebook or audiobook- and I always have an opinion to share.
Another good book in this series! With well done narration, the series comes to life on audio. Each separate couple brings their own story with its quirks and sweetness. By the end, the characters feel like family. Caution: begin with book one of the series!
This is book 2 of 3. It's a stand alone but goes beautifully with the other 2 in the series. The story is so cute and funny. I read the books before listening to the audio books. Hearing the stories made them even more charming.The narration is also very good. It's definitely worth a credit. Listen to all 3 for a nice treat.
Awesome story but not as great as the first. I love these narrators. Miles was a typical playboy. Natalie was very responsible and it was nice that she eventually relaxed.
I have never laughed so hard while listening/reading a book.
Nelson and Lucy nailed the personalities of the characters
When Miles proves his love for her in the cafe and it begins the HEA
When Miles wrote a blog about falling in love with Natalie
Funny and serious at times, this book is nice continuation of this series. The narration was well done, bringing the characters to life. Can't wait too long to listen to the next story...
Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
This "Some Sort Of" series is such a fun and easy listen. It still has angst but not the "biting your nails" kind of angst, more like the "oh I hope they end up together" angst.
Happy endings and witty writing are written all over this series and I'm absolutely in love with it.
Nelson Hobbs has a little bit of a hitch in his breath that grates on me and Lucy Malone sounds too old for these characters but I am being nit picky because they are completely believable and easy to listen to.
