Review of "No One Lives Twice No One Lives Twice" (Lexi Carmichael #1) - Julie Moffett
No One Lives Twice No One Lives Twice - Julie Moffett

Well, this stayed unexpectedly action-packed start to finish so was fun (particularly when turning to the James Bond international espionage drawing in MI-6, CIA, FBI, NSA...).

 

I enjoyed the read.

 

Not sure it's what I'd consider Young Adult.  Lots of romantic possibilities with yummy men (not what I'd consider a love triangle, thank goodness -- but definitely a PG or less explicitness so maybe that accounts for the "YA"?  Lexi is an independent adult with degree, steady job, own home, not a teenager, not a 18-24 college student or new adult, not in any academy type of setting -- pretty much not seeing where this is YA.

 

Which is a good thing; YA is a love/hate for me with many great books but far more angst-y, clueless, high school-ish, and loveg ringlets.

 

Read for the booklikes' YA Book Club; I think it may have been just me unless someone has yet to join in or post.

Hmmm…nothing seems to faze her.Not sure I like that (I mean you are held at gun point several times, your home is broken into several times including when you are home, stuff tossed about ... and you go to bed without even changing sheets?).

 

On the other hand, I wouldn't want to be reading endless whining about it.

 

I certainly don't like that a co-worker she is definitely not interested in (and has told him so) only gives her a safe ride after she promises a tongue kiss ... WTF?  

 

Lots of potential romantic interests have been tossed in (not a love triangle or anything yet).  

 

I want the more collected chick from the beginning of book back.  Not this unfazed one potentially letting the dudes walk all over her; one confident in her own skills instead of self-deprecating them in comparison with all the new guys that have shown up in the story.

Enjoying this; probably because so far I like Lexi.  

 

Getting a Romancing the Stone vibe.  Well, not a jewel or a romance yet; just something about the atmosphere with everyone after the "papers" BF supposedly sent her.  

 

I really, really hope this isn't headed to an ending where it was all a setup by BF to get her to have adventure and romance instead of living life in the cube farm.  I'm deliberately avoiding reviews until after I finish book to avoid spoilers.

So far — in a good way — this is not coming across as YA.  Possibly because Lexi is turning 25, has college degree, a not- new job, and a roommate-less apartment.

I can relate to the "shoulder surfing" comment.  It's always irritating when uninvited, but at least she's civil service at a time where government offices are non-smoking (*bad flashbacks* to tiny offices and cubicles with already poor ventilation where the shoulder surfers chain-smoked and often made snickering comments about needing a brain straw to get in my head ...)

Starting this mystery for a booklikes book club -- YA Book Club. Feel free to join us.

 

Completely unfamiliar with book and author.  Kinda sounds like YA meets chick flick meets mystery meets Gallagher Girls meets Get Smart.  First in the Lexi Carmichael series.
