Publisher's Summary

When life closes each door and the world has taken away every opportunity, sometimes, it's up to us to make our own luck - and to give ourselves a second chance.  

Noah Westwood is tired of life on the streets, so he turns to Marcello Maltese, a man who owns a small media empire...and a few covert businesses, such as an escort service. Noah volunteers for this, but he's playing a dangerous game. A secret from his past could turn his new friends into enemies, and he isn't sure he can perform the duties he signed up for, especially when he's more interested in falling in love than hopping into the beds of his clients. 

This is complicated further when his hunky coworker, Harold Franklin, seems to be interested. Or is he? 

Noah is off the streets, but he'll have to travel down many roads on his quest to find his happily ever after. 

Something Like Hail introduces a new character to the Something Like... series, one whose life is intertwined with the previous stories in unexpected ways.

Interesting

it was nice to get some closer on the whole Ryan debacle. I enjoyed that even he was able to get a somewhat happy ending. Noah and Harold ending up together would have been to easy, although if you have Something like Forever, then you do hear them mentioned again. So, you never know what the future holds. I can understand how some fans of the series could be turned off about the escort storyline, however, this allowed us to get more information on Marcello, which is always fun.

Great start but a disappointing ending. Definitely wishing I could recover time spent.

I'm a fan of the series, but not this volume.

disappointed and rushed

this book had so much potential but I felt it was rushed. it started off very good going in a interesting Direction, but then Twisted Metal and especially the end it just felt like Jay Bell was trying to meet a deadline. every time I thought it was going to get me back to that sweet spot and explain unanswered questions it didn't. I love this series and all of the characters but I must say I feel like this book could have been omitted from the series.

Skip this one

I am a true Something Like...fan, listening to the whole series over and over. but, this book simply does not belong and somehow tries to make prostitution into a really great career choice. It does not go with the series.

Love it...as always

Ugh!! Got to the book late after listening to the rest. Not sure if I remember any of the characters in the following books or at least not enough of them to remember. I really want to hear the rest of their story!! Any chance they get a spin off?

Also, Marcello is my spirit animal...I need Marcello in MANY more books!!!

hmm

Highly conflicted over the book. Found Noah confusing and i didn't feel any connection to Harold. it's one you have to read to make your own decision about how things play out. I fell in love with Felix just like I did Jace. however it is my least favourite book in the series but I did enjoy it.
