{Review} A Lot Like Love by Julie James

A Lot Like Love
Series: FBI / US Attorney #2
By: Julie James
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Source: Library
Buy: Amazon, Book Depository

The FBI wants her cooperation.
As the daughter of a billionaire and the owner of the city's top wine store, Jordan Rhodes is invited to the most exclusive parties in Chicago. But there's only one party the FBI wants to crash: the charity fundraiser of a famous restaurateur, who also happens to launder money for the mob. In exchange for her brother's release from prison, Jordan is going to be there—with a date supplied by the Bureau.

Agent McCall just wants her.
As the top undercover agent in Chicago, Nick McCall has one rule: never get personal. This "date" with Jordan Rhodes is merely an assignment— one they're both determined to pull off even if they can't be together for five minutes before the sarcasm and sparks begin to fly. But when Nick's investigation is compromised, he and Jordan have no choice but to pretend they're a couple, and what starts out as a simple assignment begins to feel a lot like something more.
RATING: 5 out of 5 stars! 

I love anything by Julie James, starting with her first book that I've read: Something About You. There's just something about her book that made me smile when I read it. A Lot Like Love didn't disappoint me. It has the right dosage of humour, fun and action--enough to captivate me. The premise of the story is intriguing. The FBI needed someone's help to crash the big party and Jordan Rhodes was the best choice since FBI has something that she wants--her brother. So, being the good sister that she was, she agreed and wow, things got better from there on. I love the chemistry between Jordon and Nick. It builds up slowly and then bang! Throw in some danger and action to bring you to a happy ending. With book 2 of Julie's FBI/US Attorney down, I'm heading off to book 3, and then to book 4 this coming April. *happy dance*

I’d like to know more about this undercover agent who posed as my daughter’s date. The ubiquitous Tall, Dark, and Smoldering.'

Nick put on his best meet-the-parent smile. 'I generally prefer to go by Nick.

“You've met Nick?"
"Yep, we've met, all right. He was kind enough to inform me that I have absolutely no say in whether you two date."
"Well, you don't."
"You know, you all could at least pretend that my opinion makes a difference.” 


  1. I've been looking to read more adult-contemp and this one sounds great! So happy you loved it and thought there was great chemistry and that it was funny and action packed! I'll definitely be checking out book number one, thanks Michelle! :)

  2. I need to read this book soon. It's been over a year since I read the first book-Something About You and that was was great. I'm glad you liked it.
