Overview

“Julie James rocks! You’ll laugh out loud and wish you had an FBI agent of your own.”—Sandra Hill, New York Times bestselling author
 
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 fund-raiser 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…

    This is a throwback police procedural romantic suspense in which Hepburn-Tracy need to star

    In Chicago, heiress Jordan Rhodes owns the high end DeVine Cellars wine store. She is invited to all the elite soirees and besides her father ranked in the top ten of wealth by Forbes, she is beautiful and charming; ergo men desire her. Jordan's only down is her brother Kyle's incarceration.

    FBI Agents Seth Huxley and Nick McCall need to attend the annual Valentine's Day party tossed by Xander Eckhart so that one of them can plant bugs in his office to find information on the man's link to notorious Roberto Martino. The feds visit Jordon at her store where they offer her a get out of jail card for her computer geek sibling in exchange for allowing Nick to escort her to the Eckhart gala; she agrees. However, the scheme goes awry leading to Nick becoming Jordan's escort to keep her safe; however they continue the charade that looks like the real deal perhaps because they are falling in love.

    This is a throwback police procedural romantic suspense in which Hepburn-Tracy need to star. The tale combines danger with light humor such as McCall's revelation as to why men watch Dancing with the Stars. Although the bodyguard gimmick has been used a lot in books and movies (see the Costner-Houston film The Bodyguard) sub-genre fans will enjoy the fast-paced story line as the beautiful bodacious billionaire and the fearsome Fed fuss, fight and fall in love.

    There is a lot to love about it!

    This is a great, fast-paced read. Once I started, I didn't stop until I was finished. The best parts were the quips between Jordan and Nick. Even the wine talk and its terminologies were enjoyable - I had no idea you could read certain connotations into it. Another book that I kept thinking about while reading it was "Pride and Prejudice". Like it, this book is centered around two main characters who both have an unwanted attraction and certain prejudices towards each other. Nick sees his job as a hindrance for any long-term relationship and doesn't fit into her lifestyle. Jordan thinks he's arrogant and that he annoys her most of the time. Julie James' books are categorized as romance, but this like "Something About You" is more romantic suspense with steam. I enjoy each book more than the last and can't wait for her next one.

    Well worth the wait!

    I look forward to each of her new releases and console myself by telling myself that the wait in between books will give me a better read and "A Lot Like Love" totally proved me right.
    A very humorous read with enough sex, action and actual romance to keep me reading in between toddler emergencies. I soaked up all the wine info and really want to go to a wine bar now.
    The lead characters felt very well matched and I specially liked the way Jordan quantified how much she disliked Nick throughout the book with percentages. I'm definitely looking forward to Kyle's book and hoping the Ivy League FBI agents keep on showing up, because I love sexy geeks.
    I would recommend this book for book club discussions because Nick and Jordan have enough of a life outside of the plot line to make discussion interesting.

    Fun Read

    Like this author and this series. Helps to read in order because main characters in previous books come back. I pre-order Julie James books because I like her writing style and know I won't be disappointed!

    Awesome

    ## BEST. BOOK. EVER. You absolutely must read this book. It was fabulous. The story was intriguing, sweet and very funny. The hero was YUMMY. This is by far my favorite heroine ever. Sweet, strong, beautiful, funny and very sarcastic. Loved this couple. And the chemistry between them was electric. Even the ending was satisfying (after so much time invested in a book, i hate it when the author doesn't spend time on a good juicy ending). Not the case here. Cant say enough about this amazingly sexy read!

    A Lot Like Love is a fantastic book. I loved the sarcastic humor, the suspense, and the hot bathroom scenes. Julie James did a
    wonderful job with this book.

    As with all of Ms. James' FBI stories "A Lot Like Love"

    As with all of Ms. James' FBI stories "A Lot Like Love" was a fun filled romance with a strong independent woman who knows her own mind and isn't afraid to use it! And can any other author write the "Tall, Dark and Smoldering" hero the way Ms. James does...(sigh)! The storyline is fresh out of today's newspapers and the characters resonate with true life so that it makes reading these novels an A plus experience and the hot lovemaking curls my toes! Once again an unbeatable and enjoyable novel. Don't miss it!

    GREAT READ!

    This story is about Nick, a good looking and sexy undercover FBI agent, and Jordan, a beautiful, sexy and smart high end wine shop owner. They meet when he needs her help with a case. There are laugh out loud funny parts. There is romance and sex. I enjoyed this book and recommend it highly. It is a quick read and you'll have trouble putting it down once you start reading it.

    Instead of a FBI / US-Attorney pairing we have an FBI agent (Nic

    Instead of a FBI / US-Attorney pairing we have an FBI agent (Nick McCall) and a socialite that runs her own wine store (Jordan Rhodes). Nick is a dedicated undercover agent coming off a recent deep cover assignment. The Special Agent in Charge asks Nick to partner up with Huxley, another agent getting ready for his first undercover assignment. Not surprisingly Huxley comes down with the flu, forcing Nick to step in.

    In nice foreshadowing for a later book, Jordan happens to have a twin brother (Kyle) who’s been convicted of cyber-terrorism. Kyle hacked twitter after a former girlfriend opted to use the popular social media to breakup with Kyle by posting pictures of her new beau. Jordan is convinced to help the FBI gain access to a local restaurateur in exchange for Kyle’s release from prison. Everything is supposed to be easy. Nick accompanies Jordan to an annual high society wine party at a local restaurant. Nick sneaks away to plant several bugs in the restaurant owner’s office to gain information on a local money laundering scheme.

    Not surprisingly, the assignment doesn’t go quite as well as planned and Nick and Jordan end up spending far more time together than planned. Their supposed relationship is called into question so they are forced to continue to assignment. Nick and Jordan make an interesting pair. They do not immediately get along – a trope that seems to be a James standard. However, in her capable hands it seems to work. Their initial snark gives way to genuine sparks that drive the story.

    Getting the bad guy takes a back-seat to Nick and Jordan figuring out initially how to work together and eventually to support each other whole-heartedly. The FBI operation provides enough forward momentum to keep the story moving, but doesn’t detract from the fundamental romance. This is most definitely a character driven novel. James has created characters that you enjoy and want to see move forward together.

    Awesome READ!

    Okay, I'm gonna start this review off a little different from others. This series was phenomenal; an excellent read and even in my world where I try to get reading done, but often my life and/or my own writing interferes, I just couldn't put this series down, especially this book.

    I do think About That Night is the best of the series so far. To see Kyle finally get his HEA was a nice ride and the quirks that happen between him and Rylann were so funny, they had me laughing so hard I was in tears.

    I would definitely recommend this series to anyone looking for a bit of suspense, a lot of comedy and a whole lot of sexy scenes. A great read, once again.

    5 out of 5 stars.
