Publisher's Summary

Lincoln Mathis doesn't hide his reputation as Manhattan's ultimate playboy. In fact, he cultivates it. But behind every flirtatious smile, each provocative quip, there's a secret that Lincoln's hiding from even his closest friends - a tragedy from his past that holds his heart quietly captive. Lincoln knows what he wants: someone like Daisy Sinclair, the sassy, off-limits bridesmaid he can't take his eyes off at his best friend's wedding. He also knows that she's everything he can never have.

After a devastating divorce, Daisy doesn't need anyone to warn her off the charming best man at her sister's wedding. One look at the breathtakingly hot Lincoln Mathis and she knows that he's exactly the type of man she should avoid. But when Daisy stumbles upon Lincoln's secret, she realizes there's more to the charming playboy than meets the eye. And suddenly Daisy and Lincoln find their lives helplessly entwined in a journey that will either heal their damaged souls...or destroy them forever.

Loved - Hated - Loved - REALLY Hated

I loved Lincoln in the previous books.

In his story I Loved - Hated - Loved - Hated - Loved - REALLY HATED him to the point that up to about 8 minutes before the book ended I didn’t think he could do anything to make me like him again, and the heroine would be a doormat if she took him back, but I did change my mind.

The heroine is written as a better person than I would have been under the same circumstances.

I didn’t have problems with the narrator as many people did, but then again I listened to it at a higher speed.

It is a ro-bot nar-rator

Painfully robotic but good story. Try to zone out and not think about how awful the reader is.

Narration Leaves Much to be Desired

The narrator really sounds like a robot. Oddly, her voice is marginally better when she reads dialogue, but overall it was really stilted, so much that it impacted my ability to appreciate the story.

Loved It!

Read the book and listed to it again. Could actually feel the sincerity of the friendship between the Stileto and Oxford chararcters. So welocming . Nice to get that warm, friendly banter between them all.

Narrator Ruined It!!

Not only did it feel like Siri was reading to me, but she got characters names wrong! She calls Jake "Jack" at one point and called Lincoln "Cole". It was a good thing I knew who the characters were going into it. This story is incredible and does an amazing job developing a character who in all the previous books was so aloof and turning him into someone you fell in love with. I suggest reading this one rather than listening....

The one we waited for

Someone Like You is the story of Lincoln, the suave, debonaire playboy we've heard about for several books. But observant characters (and readers!) in the Oxford series nevertheless suspected there might be hidden shadows behind his devil-may-care attitude. Someone Like You pulls back the smokescreen and reveals a man tormented by pain and loss. But a new light, in the form of Daisy, appears in his life and offers him a chance to live and love again. This volume was cleverly left out of the Audible Romance package, but I knew there was a story worth hearing, and I have no regrets about buying it separately. All of the couples in Lauren Layne's Oxford series have to fight for their happily-ever-afters, and this story, like the rest, was delightfully crafted and left me with a happy sigh of contentment.

Great book, horrible reader!

I loved this series and I would give it a 4star, but this is audible,and this reader was NOT good. The previous two books In the series were read by someone much better. Too bad!!

Horrible Reader

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I cannot listen to this book. I feel like Siri is reading to me. I am going to have to read it instead. I wish I could get a refund it is so bad. I am only on chapter 3.

Outstanding Read, So-So Narration

I loved the story and yes I teared up. It was perfect.

The narrator really needs to work on delivery. It was stiff and without the feeling in the first two audio books of the series. That said, it is still a good book.
