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.

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.

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.

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!

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" 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!

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 (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.
