    I was given an ARC copy for an honest review. First off I will state that I believe that you can write a book without having a whole lot of curse words. I took one star because I felt that the author used at least 1-2 curse words every page or 2. To me that says they do not have it in their vocabulary to say something very intelligent so they throw out a curse word when another word will do just fine. You need to be ready to read and deal with some tough stuff in this book. I felt that this author was probably emotionally drained by the time she was done with this book. I know by the time I was done I was on an emotional roller coaster. Charlotte (Female Lead) is coping with a lot on her plate and has to get help. The timing of when she meets Dylan (Male Lead) seems like it could not be more perfect. I think the timing is off, but I am not the one who wrote the book. Dylan does help Charlotte, but tends to call on Sofia (Charlotte's Sister) a lot. I understand when someone is BiPolar you do not know what to do, however if I was the author I would have had Dylan go look it up and learn how to deal with it and how to help her through Sofia and her Dr's. This is a touchy subject with all the news lately and it does need to be wrote about. Those going though this or who have had experience with this disease, this is NOT and I repeat NOT the book for you. This was a very well written book and there is a song list at the back of the book for all the songs mentioned in the book for those who are interested.

    5 Stars Something Like That, is a book full of emotions that will have you feeling what Charlotte and Dylan are going thru.Charlotte was a woman with a horrible past concerning her last relationship with Eli her boyfriend of 3 years. After battleing Bipolar Disorder, an overbarring mother and a father that kept himself away from his resposibilities.Dylan was a gorgeous university professor, and a music lover, being a single guy with a horrible recond on his relationship department, thanks to his parents toxic marriage. He was a passionate man and when life hands him a chance to love, he went for it.When Dylan meets Charlotte, he knew he wanted to get to know her and for the first time in his life, wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. When Charlotte met Dylan she didn't understand how comfortable she felt with him. Never felt those feeling for anyone it made Charlotte nervous.Will Charlotte, the chaotic, skeptical and blunt try and make this relationship work with Dylan the clever, passionate unashamed professor?I love how this story takes you thru Charlotte turmoil, and how Dylan's passion always comes to the rescue.I will recommend you this amazing book.

    This was a witty and intelligent love story. Charlotte and Dylan meet in line in a coffee shop, and have the funniest conversation that they agree to meet again. A major hook of the book for me is the conversations - they are so real and so funny at times that I really felt like i was eavesdropping. Charlotte is recovering from a relationship that ended in a total disaster, leaving both her and her ex hospitalized, on meds, and under doctors' care. She doesn't do well with needy - she breaks needy people and then despises herself for it. Luckily, Dylan is not needy. He is talented, witty, a professor of music history at a university. They start off almost with a series of non-dates - just meeting, and start to open up to each other emotionally. I found myself pulling for both of these characters to overcome their obstacles and fall for each other just as I was falling for them. This is very different from so many of the YA books out there now. I have already read this twice!

    The emotions on display in this book are all consuming.. when the main character, Charlotte, breaks - you break with her... you fall in love with her, you dislike her for hiding behind sarcasm - but you always feel for her... the turmoil of her life is constantly moving - but she's tired of being it's victim

    I wasn’t sure about this book when I started. My first impression was “scattered”, but I am so glad I kept reading. This was a quirky, intelligent, emotional read that drew me in completely. We start the story when Dylan and Charlotte meet in a coffee shop, witty banter ensues and they set a date to meet again. What starts as two people getting to know each other as friends becomes so much more – a story of healing, forgiveness, living and thriving with mental illness, proving that you are so much more than others deem you capable of, and of course meeting that person that is so incredibly right for you, flaws and all. While it was the intelligent speak that drew me in, which yes at times bordered on almost too much (had to reread some passages several times), these two characters kept me going. Both were smart and freakishly intuitive, especially with one another, but only to the point that made them endearing and fun. Dylan’s ability to read Charlotte’s needs as a friend, lover and personal provider of mental healing in physical form, wow, all I can say is perfection. He took the role of supportive boyfriend to a new level of awesomeness. There was just something about his ability to calm and comfort Charlotte that had me wanting more. Charlotte provided a strong and interesting perspective of living with bipolar disorder, thriving after a breakdown at the end of a toxic relationship, coping with concerned family despite having a bitch of a mother who seriously should have been locked up for the mental anguish she imparts. But this is also a story about strength and tenacity and finding yourself again, and Charlotte was definitely on her way. I would have liked more or a conclusion and epilogue as the end here felt too abrupt and left me hanging. Still, this was a beautiful story that I’m glad I had the opportunity to read.Find more reviews at www.rawbooksonline.com

    I was asked to read this, by the author, in exchange for a review, these words are my personal opinion and are not swayed in any way.Charlotte is surrefing from a breakdown of a relationship that ended in violence. The relationship with Eli was toxic for them both, at its worst, and it exploded. 9 months later, Charlotte is on the mend, but still suffering. Dylan is a breath of fresh air to Charlotte, but equally damaged by a different toxic love, that of his parents.I loved this, I really did! Charoltte's breakdown is hinted at, for quite some time before we get the full story and I loved being made to left hanging. Being made to read more, because, for crikes sake, WTF did that just mean?? You know?? That sort of left hanging!The relationship between Dylan and Charlotte was a bit two steps forward, one step back but it was a pleasure to watch it grow and develop. I Loved both Chalotte and Dylan's sense of humour, it came across so well, and I wonder if there is a touch of the auhtor's humour in there.I do understand that this IS Charlotte's story, and is told entirely from her POV, but I would still liked to heard from Dylan, especially at key points along the way. AND this is the ONLY reason it gets 4.5 and not 5 stars. Single person POV, in the first person.The breakdown is described in all its graphic details, but is extremely well written. It was emotionally and physically painful to read, but it was needed, I think, to fully get into Charlotte's head and heart.And I loved, absolutely LOVED that the title didnt make much sense til the very last line. loved.Thank you to Ms Worley for my copy, I thoroughly enjoyed it.4.5 stars**same worded reply appears on Goodreads, Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, and here: http://archaeolibrarianologist.blogsp... **

    I loved this quirky clever love story! Charlotte and Dylan are turbulent together, yet their attraction is far more than physical. From their very first meeting both show a quick sense of humor and a forgiveness for human flaws that helps carry their relationship through some rocky times. Charlotte's past relationship and the resulting emotional breakdown still haunts her. She can't sleep. Her thoughts wander. Her heart and body have scars. But Dylan is able to see inside her heart, to understand the root of her abrupt truthful statements. He turns sharing the truth into a game that brings them closer. It was a wonderful idea. Truth comes easier and trust begins to grow. Although it takes Charlotte a while to let go of her defensive walls and let Dylan into her heart, every moment they spend together is special.He becomes her truest, greatest, most trustworthy friend. Isn't falling in love with your best friend what love is all about? This is a story about overcoming the past, finding solid ground, and reaching for something better. Charlotte learns to trust in her own inner strength, to have faith in Dylan. He accepts her completely. In their love and friendship, she becomes a better person. I was impressed with the realistic emotions of the characters. It was a rollercoaster ride that left me smiling in the end. This is a fantastic book by a talented author. I highly recommend reading "Something Like That."

    3.5 hearts!I don't know why but this book was not at all what I expected. The subject matter was really deep. This was not one of those books you just breeze your way through just enjoying the story. "Something Like That" makes you think long and hard and I would be amazed if you finished the book a little more emotional, definitely a little raw.I think the author knew the emotional toll this book would take on a person and included some really funny dialogue as well. The way our two main characters find each other and the way their love story progresses is like a beautifully written play. Each conversation is perfectly orchestrated and necessary to the plot. There were parts I laughed and parts I held my breath waiting for the moment to pass. But the connection between Charlotte and Dylan is perfect!To read the rest of my review, please visit the blog at A Love Affair With Books.

    I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review. This review is completely SPOILER-FREE.This is one of the books I had been anticipating. Boy, did it deliver!The book is in the point of view of Charlotte (aka Charmander). She has a past that makes her second guess every one of her decisions in the present. Primarily, when it comes to relationships and/or her happiness. She went through an extremely dark stage about a year prior to when the story takes place. Things happened, things were broken, individuals were broken.Charlotte is in the midst of putting the pieces back together when she meets Dylan (aka Sherlock). Their chemistry is undeniable but they have to face certain facts before they can move forward.It’s a unique story line told with phenomenal writing. Having the ability to write profound words is a gift and Lori has it. I eyes devoured each word, I couldn’t get enough.Overall, Something Like That is a book I’d recommend to everyone (over 18 of course). Did I mention the playlist??? I’m a playlist whore and, again, Lori absolutely delivered.

    Something Like That is definitely a roller coaster ride of emotions. Charlotte is broken after a tumultuous ending to a three-year relationship. Meeting history professor Dylan at a coffee shop is not on her agenda. The relationship between that ensues between the two is one of both highs and lows. Ms. Worley takes a very profound theme and writes it professionally and emotionally. Often times, I felt Charlotte's pain and Dylan's understanding of her pain. I would love to read a follow-up of their relationship to see how Charlotte's mental and physical scars heal and how her Sherlock is able to continue to save the day. Good job, Ms. Worley.

    Overcoming Fear and Other ThingsThank you for writing about Bi-Polar. It probably runs in more families than not. My family and my husband's has had members who suffer from it. Thank God that medications help to balance their lives. Some parts of Charlotte's happenings were hard to read, but it was great to finally see her conquer her fears. I look forward to reading more of your work.

    I loved the flawed nature of these characters and I loved their brutal honesty with each other. This was an incredibly beautiful and poignant read that rises out of the depths of darkness. This was brilliantly written and I will be coming back for more from this author in the future.
