AudioGals Favorite Listens of 2012: “All three of Julie James 2012 audio releases are full scale listening parties that I look forward to attending often.”

Available now from Tantor Audio.

From the Publisher:

“Though Rylann Pierce tried to fight the sparks she felt for billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes the night they met, their sizzling chemistry was undeniable. But after being stood up on their first date, Rylann never expected to see him again. So when she finds herself face to face with Kyle in a courthouse nine years later, she’s stunned. More troubling to the beautiful Assistant U.S. Attorney is that she’s still wildly attracted to him.

Just released from prison, Kyle Rhodes isn’t thrilled to be the star witness in a high-profile criminal case—but when Rylann comes knocking at his door, he finds she may be the one lawyer he can’t say no to. Still as gorgeous and sharp-tongued as ever, she lays down the law: she doesn’t mix business with pleasure. But Kyle won’t give up on something he wants—and what he wants is the one woman he’s never forgotten . . .”

From the review at Reading Between the Lines Book Club:

“Karen White is the narrator for About That Night. She’s one of my favorite narrators. I actually originally found this author and this awesome series because I was looking for other books voiced by Karen to listen to. I’ve lost count of the new authors I’ve happily discovered due to Karen. That said, it’s no surprise that she utterly nails this audio. Her delivery is natural. Both her female and male voices sound genuine and they remain consistent throughout. Her pacing is perfect. The production is professional. Truthfully, there aren’t enough superlatives to describe Karen’s performances. She’s awesome.

As I reviewed my notes in preparation for writing this review, I found myself swooning over this listen again. It’s huge to say that I would not hesitate to listen to this entire series again… and again. It’s that GREAT! Julie James is one of contemporary romances’ superstars. Pair her with Karen White and the combo can’t be beat! If you enjoy contemporary romances with some who-dun-it spice, do yourself a favor and dive into this amazing series!”

From the AudioGals review:

“Once again, pairing Karen White’s straightforward  narration with Julie James’ sophisticated and amusing dialog is a perfect 10 for me”

From the Speaking of Audiobooks review:

“Karen White gives Rylann the sexiest heroine voice yet.”

From the Eargasms Audiobooks review:

“I listened to the audiobook narrated by Karen White, who is always a pleasure. She has a slight rasp to her voice that really fits the snarky ladies and adds a gruff touch to the men’s voices. The energy it the steamy parts really gets your engine revved. I am not generally turned on by women’s voices, but Ms White definitely hits those naughty scenes in the most delicious manner!!”

My recording experience:

I’d already fallen in love with the hot-headed and brilliant Kyle Rhodes in the second book of this series (A Lot Like Love).  He’s the twin brother of that book’s heroine, Jordan, and they have a fun verbally jousting relationship.  And I have to admit I identified just a smidge with this book’s heroine Rylann (not that I’m a Type A uber-planner myself…)

Full of Julie’s signature “not quite sarcastic” humor I had a blast recording this book.  Rylann and Kyle truly are a match for each other – in their stubborness, intelligence and sensuality and going on the ride with them as they come together was a treat.

Listen to a sample here:


  1. […] What can I say?  I feel so lucky that the very first romance I recorded was Julie‘s JTSMA, and that Julie’s been requesting that I narrate her books ever since.  I love her sense of humor, the sizzle between the leads, the sexy smart heroines and loveably lost heros and the real-world relationship challenges that she addresses on top of it all!  Just mad I had to wait so long to find out more about Cade Morgan.  I knew he had promise when he appeared in About That Night… […]

  2. […] Romance audiobook column, I’m hosting a giveaway of the CD versions of A Lot Like Love and About That Night (the second and third title in Julie James’ FBI/US Attorney […]

  3. I have not had the pleasure of reading any of Julie’s books but they sound great. I’ve heard good things about them from my friends who have read them.
