FATE HAS THROWN TWO SWORN ENEMIES...
Of all the hotel rooms rented by all the adulterous politicians in Chicago, female Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde had to choose the one next to 1308, where some hot-and-heavy lovemaking ends in bloodshed. And of all the FBI agents in Illinois, it had to be Special Agent Jack Pallas who gets assigned to this high-profile homicide. The same Jack Pallas who still blames Cameron for a botched crackdown three years ago—and nearly ruining his career…
…INTO EACH OTHER'S ARMS
Work with Cameron Lynde? Are they kidding? Maybe, Jack thinks, this is some kind of welcome-back prank after his stint away from Chicago. But it’s no joke: the pair is going to have to put their rocky past behind them and focus on the case at hand. That is, if they can cut back on the razor-sharp jibes—and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension…

Julie James pens another deliciously sexy story in Something About You. Assistant US Attorney Cameron Lynde just wants to get some much needed sleep. Her home is having the floors refinished so she is spending the night in a hotel. Her neighbors have been having some wall banging lovemaking. It's making it impossible to sleep. Next thing she knows there was a murder next store and she is in protective custody. Special Agent Jack Pallas has been assigned to the case. This is the some agent that blames Cameron for ruining his FBI career. Jack Pallas can't believe his luck of all the people to be assigned to protect it has to be Cameron Lynde. A major case three years ago all but stopped his rise in the ranks at the FBI. Now he is back on track and he won't let Cameron ruin it again. Jack and Cameron need to put their past behind them and focus on who now wants to harm Cameron. Cameron and Jack both discover misconceptions about each other that lead to a sizzling attraction. Once they give into their passions nothing will stop them from being together. Something About You is wickedly funny and smoking hot. The Dialogue is fast paced and witty. This book is a great book that will stay in your thoughts long after you have turned the last page. I am looking forward to more from this author.

Contemporary romance fans will rejoice in SOMETHING ABOUT YOU, the third delightful contemporary by Julie James. In Chicago, Illinois, hard-working Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde has decided to treat herself to a weekend at the luxurious Peninsula hotel while her newly refinished hardwood floors dry at her Victorian home. However, instead of getting the R & R she planned for, she finds herself the sole witness to a high-profile murder in the hotel room next door. After the authorities find a videotape with a U.S. Senator involved with a dead call girl, FBI Special Agent Jack Pallas is put in charge of the case. Of all the agents who could be assigned the investigation, Jack is the last one Cameron wants to see. Three years ago, when she was a new Assistant U.S. Attorney, she had to shut down an organized crime case in which Jack had worked undercover for several years. Likewise, Jack isn't thrilled to see Cameron since he believes she's directly responsible for a demotion he received from the Department of Justice. Will the feisty Cameron and the brooding Jack be able to set aside their past differences to solve this high profile case? And what about their former chemistry that seems to be as strong as ever? In a market where too few really good contemporary romances are being published, Julie James is breathing life back into this subgenre with her witty and wonderful love stories full of great chemistry and sparkling verbal repartee. There's something about Julie James's unique writing that will make readers definitely notice SOMETHING ABOUT YOU!

Witty, romantic, suspense is a fun quick read. This story is fast-paced, great action, involving corruption, conspiracy and a murdering stalker. In an attempt to rejuvenate following a three month stressful racketeering trial, US Assistant District Attorney, Cameron Lynde has booked herself into a hotel in Chicago for an overnight stay. A lot of raucous ensues in the next room all night. She calls hotel security.It ends up that there's a murdered woman next door. Cameron is questioned and sequestered in her room while the investigation is underway. FBI Special Agent Jack Pallas and his partner, Wilkins, enter the situation. Cameron is a quick wit, sarcastic and gives as good as she gets in and outside the courtroom. ENJOYED! Other good reads are HOTEL ON THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET, THE LAST CHILD, EXPLOSION IN PARIS, ON FOLLY BEACH, and LIFE IN DEFIANCE.

There's "Something About You," I just can't put my finger on it? Could it be that you'll laugh your derriere off? How about the lustful desires you mange to project upon yourself? Like, having a provocatively gorgeous FBI agent follow you around in & out of the bedroom? { >;o)~ Devilishly Wicked Grin } Or the constant "word fencing" between Jack & Cameron, causing you to beg them to descend upon their sexual frustrations they posses for one another? Well all three were a definite "YES!" for me. I immensely enjoyed this novel. It was a quick, delightful, & gratifying read. And the legal logistics were fascinating as well. My only complaint was that Ms. James revealed who the culprit was early on; however, she didn't disclose his/her motives. I would have undoubtedly preferred to be surprised at the end. Yet, overall it was an EXCELLENT story. WELL DONE MS. JAMES, THIS NOVEL DESERVES WELL BEYOND A 5 STAR RATING!!

Julie James does it again with "Something About You." Her story lines and characters are new and refreshing! Highly recommend this book to read if you have read her other ones. If you haven't, I still recommend reading this book. You won't be disappointed!

I won this book from Goodreads and I am ever so grateful. Julie James has written an extremely intense romantic thriller. This is the story of Assistant US Attorney Cameron Lynde and F.B.I. agent Jack Pallas. They have a rocky past but must work together to solve a murder that Cameron sort of witnessed and Jack is investigating. Attempts on Cameron's life draws them closer together and soon the sparks are flying.

I got this because everyone said it was so funny. Maybe I am missing something but not funny so far. I put it aside for something better. Just couldn't get attached to the characters.

I found this author by accident and fell in love with her! The first book I read was "It Happened One Wedding" and I knew I had to start at the beginning! All I can say is that Special Agent Jack Pallas can watch over me anytime. The chemistry between Jack and Cameron was smokin' HOT! Julie James has made me an ultimate fan!

It was an alright of a book, but nothing too spectacular. Cameron is an assistant attorney to the US Attorney, and Jack is an FBI agent. They liked each other in the past, but it was short lived when they ended up seriously pissing each other off, and Jack had to leave the state. Now he's back, and trying to solve a murder that she is the key witness to. They hate each other, but there's a lot of attraction and they just can't hide it. I did like the chemistry between these two, but the story line definitely needed some help. I hated that we knew the answer to the murder right away, but it wasn't really a mystery novel. After Cameron and Jack "got together" the book moved really slow, and a lot of the chapters were boring. But if you're bored, it might cure it.

Something About You was a funny yet intense novel. Julie James did an excellent job of making the pages turn.
