Publisher's Summary

Screenwriter Noah Ashley has a few four-letter words for his agent when she suggests he improve his script by shadowing a PI. Still, because he's an artist dedicated to his craft and she knows where the bodies are buried, he agrees. Then he spends a little time with the gorgeous PI, and suddenly it seems like a really good plan. The PI doesn't seem to entirely love the idea, but Noah has never been afraid to go after what he wants.

PI Drew Rodriguez is used to people depending on him. He's the classic rock for his family. Responsible. Dependable. The classic rock would never succumb to the borderline sleazy temptation of friends with benefits, no matter how sexy that temptation is. Drew is looking for something enduring.

Despite Drew's misgivings, it's not long before they've got all the requisites for friends with benefits going. Friendly, good conversation? Check. Fun times in and out of bed? Check. Hot, electrolyte-sapping sex? Double check. Falling in love? Yeah. About that....

A Great Story...

I so enjoy a story in which the author provides a plethora of backstory that endears the primary characters to the reader/listener and Harmon does a great job in this book. Noah and Drew are such great characters and of course I was routing for this pairing. The wit and sarcasm of each character is great and one cannot help but want a HEA. The narrator did a fantastic job bringing this story to life. Great second edition to this series...looking forward to the next installment.

Great Listen, great story

I enjoyed how the pulled the listener into the story and made you care about the characters. The narration was great as well.

I can foresee myself listening to this story again.

Great narration made an ok story fantastic.

What made the experience of listening to So into You the most enjoyable?

The narration. Michael Stellman has a youthful, vibrancy to his voice that truly encapsulated the characters in this story.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Aside from the narration I enjoyed following along as both Drew and Noah grew exponentially from where the story started to where it ended.

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

I have and it was just as good. As I said above, his vocal tones really fit for younger characters and storylines. He doesn't do a ton of different voices per say, but he manages to change tone just enough to make it easy for the listener to know when there's a change in POV.

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

So Into You is perfect.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the push and pull between the two MC's and how there was a role reversal in a way toward the end. Both men have pasts that make it hard for them to trust in love or commitment. They also both share parental issues, though for different reasons. Noah was adopted, though he's reconnected with his birth mom. He just can't understand why she is happy with twin girls and getting ready to get married, and yet, she couldn't keep him. And then Drew has the day late, dollar short dad that's in and out of his, his brother and mother's lives more than he's in and out of prison. It was wonderful to sit back and listen as they grew closer, challenged each other and ultimately fell in love.

The story was slow and tedious in places, dialogue and inner monologues that drug on excessively. I thought that perhaps this book could have been an hour or three shorter, the story tightened up a bit, and this would have easily been a 5 star for me. Stellman's narration pulled my rating up though, it was fantastic. His voice itself is young and fresh, his tones generally full of life and energy, much like Noah. And though Drew is a bit older, wiser and jaded... Stellman really conveyed every facet of his personality and I loved that.

Definitely worth a listen especially if you read/listened to book 1 or are a fan of the narrator.

Good story. Good narration.

This story was a bit like a soap opera mixed with a sitcom. Much of the narrative had dashes of humor, but the pacing felt like a daytime soap. Will he. Won't he. Maybe it will work.... It was fun.

Anyway, the entire cast of characters was interesting. I would have liked to get to know the main characters a little better. The reader is introduced to the basics of their personalities, but sometimes it felt like Noah and Drew are hiding emotions from the reader as much as each other.

The romantic tension stayed all the way to the end without having to much angst. The resolution was satisfying, but there were enough loose ends to leave room for more stories about side characters.

Overall, this was an entertaining read with interesting characters in a well built setting. In addition to an entertaining story, the narrator, Michael Stellman's, performance added depth and personality to each character's voice.

it was boring

It was boring, I ended up skipping through the book. Good writing but not any action. To much angst and snark.

Continuing an Excellent Series

What was one of the most memorable moments of So into You?

I think the moment that was most memorable for me was when Mac moved in with Jordan. A minor moment over all in the progress of the story, and as this is not Mac's story, it's something that is focused on, however seeing Mac and Jordan's story continuing is something I was wanting to see.

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

His dedication to each character's voice makes each of the main characters one I will remember.

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

Fantasy, reality, and when the two meet.

A+ rating...

My Review:
Overall: 4.75
Performance: 4.25
Story: 5.0

Why oh why have I let this book languish in my TBR when it was so good? I just had no idea just how good it was going to be. Such a gift sitting and waiting for me to read at just the right time.

OMG, just like the first book in this series, I ADORED this book. It was so good, so snarky, so much just pure fun to read and enjoy. Honestly, read that story description...it has this book nailed. It was so good.

What isn't mentioned in that description is that Noah's agent is also his ex-wife. I loved their relationship so much. They're friends...in fact, Noah has stayed friends with almost all his ex's, except his most recent one that nobody else liked anyway. But he's a casual guy, more about right now than long-term, and his hookups respect that about him. He also lives his life in Hollywood. That world kind of prevents anything lasting to have a chance...to last.

Drew is the opposite. He's all about commitment. He just hasn't found the right guy for that. His life is a bit chaotic. He's former military who now works as a PI. He has a younger brother that he's basically raised because dad was in prison...and suddenly both those guys are back in Drew's life throughout this book. (Drew is used to be a loner...having his not necessarily welcome family living with him is throwing a wrench in everything about his life.) He's the solid guy that everyone counts on for stability. He doesn't deal with change or chaos well. Ever since Noah showed up, he's had nothing but all that, and Drew doesn't have any patience for that, so he shuts Noah down at every turn.

I loved the conflict between them at the beginning of the book. It built up some fantastic sexual chemistry between them. I listened to this one on audio and loved every single minute of listening to it. But I just ordered it in print, because this is a new favorite that belongs on my keeper shelf. LOVED IT and HIGHLY recommend it.

enjoyable but could have been better

Any additional comments?

This book would have been better if it was shorter and thus quicker paced. I think the whole first hour was just back story, and there continued to be a lot of that throughout the story. I enjoyed the narrator, but he needs to do more to distinguish the characters. A few times I caught myself wondering which character was supposed to be doing the speaking.

Good story but...

I enjoyed the connection between Drew and Noah. As much as their pasts were different, the similarities were there as well: childhood lost, lost of parents, finding their way in life with little or no guidance. However, I felt there were too many loose ends regarding Noah's parents.

I loved reading of a bisexual character who wasn't looked at as being confused or unable to commit.

The narrator's voice was just right for these guys. I also, like the new support characters and the appearance of Jordan and Mac. I'm looking forward to book 3.

I might DNF this at ~50% or start some serious skipping

The story around the central MCs is great.
The MCs from the previous book are great and it’s great to see how their relationship is progressing.
What’s not great, and is just too much, is allll the family garbage. The idea of: welp, they treated me like garbage, negatively affected my whole life, never apologized or made up for any of it, and continue to use me buuut they’re family so I’ll just grin and bear it and water under the bridge blah, blah, blah. Pages upon pages of that.

Light and pleasant but very little detecting!

Hollywood screenwriter, Noah, braves Florida to shadow a reluctant PI, Drew, to add some realism to his current screenplay. I didn’t love Noah at the start, he seemed shallow, but he grew on me over time. A lot of the narrative sits with Drew and his tendency to commit early and hard. I quite liked this, but I was looking for the same fantastic humour I found in SE Harmon’s Rules of Possession series - there was some but nowhere near as much. Having said that, the characters were pleasant and the plot engaging. 🎧 Michael Stellman narrated well although he sounded a little young and light for Drew’s character - spot on for Noah’s though.
