James writes contemporary romance, but both books I've read would satisfy fans of romantic suspense, as well.
This is the first non-attorney heroine that James has written, and I have to give her props for doing that. It would be like me writing romantic suspense novel without a journalist heroine, something I haven't been brave enough to do yet.
I think she does a splendid job of it, clearly having done her research into wine. I found myself wanting to write down tips, which I KNOW other readers have done, as the most frequent highlights in the Kindle version involved the various steps of wine tasting. So James is helping to launch a new cadre of oinophiles, which is all to the good.
Romantic fiction and wine go well together — almost as well as romance and wine. I found myself giggling out loud at some points, which no one heard because planes are so noisy. I felt the characters were believable and endearing, including secondary characters, and I enjoyed seeing Cameron and Jack again.
I got a real kick out of Nick's relationship with his long-suffering mother. Also, I found the sex scenes very hot and fun to read. That's important. And I'm just so grateful to James for writing this book because otherwise I probably would have gotten thrown off my flight by TSA for yelling at the person in front of me.
I need to go back now and read her first two titles. View all 14 comments. The blurb was very interesting and I began immediately with this love story, believing it will be action packed, because, duuuh, FBI and stuf.. It was not as predicted, but I liked it.. It was funny and had a lot of steamy moments, with a great chemistry between the characters.
To make a summary, Nick is an FBI agent, specialized in undercover operations. When he is offered the chance to take down a money launderer, he takes it without blinking.
All his life he was the best in the field, always delivering excelent results and making his superiors proud. Nick needs help from Jordan to infiltrate him in the world of the notorious money launderer and in exchange, he will help her brother which is imprisoned get a milder sentence.
Jordan was amazing as a heroine, I loved her sassy ways and her confidence. She has an excelent wine business and her passion for his industry made her well known at the top of the chain. When Nick makes her that proposal, she agrees to help in order to save her brother. Their mission will be to attend a wine party organized by their target and manage to give Nick time to bug the place to gain info.
Of course complications will arise and the two of them will have a lot of time to spend together, that will gradually became something bigger and more powerful.
They were very funny together, with a lot of good dialogues, that manage to catch the essence of this couple. They are very much alike, stubborn and passionate about their jobs, but also kind of proud and would never give in first in an argument.
Why only 3. I wanted something else… Beginning with the characters and ending with the plot. Their relationship should have been more explored and I wanted to see them in various circumstances.. It felt kind of short and shallow in some parts of the book.
And as for the plot, it was very researched and well written, but predictable.
If you want something cute and uncomplicated, this is surely for you: For more reviews please check https: View 2 comments. She writes such fun characters. Although the suspense side seems less and less as the series goes on, this one had good suspense. I think what was missing was I was already spoilt by Jack and Vaughn.
Jordan was just an okay heroine. Also there was too much wine talk. Book 1 and book 5 are my favourites. The fact that I read all 5 books in the series almost back to back just shows how much I adore this series and the writing. Can't wait for the next book!
View all 39 comments. Mar 18, Nomes rated it it was ok Shelves: I still enjoyed reading it and 2. I actually can go into a book looking forward to those ingredients making it a fun ride. BUT the characters fell flat for me. Jordan was fairly bland. She lacked the snark or feistiness and pizazz of Julie James' other female leads such as Taylor in or Payton from.
The book gets off to a slower start and I felt a bit bored wading through the set-up. While I liked the premise, I was waiting for sparks to fly and they never really did.
Most of the romantic tension which drives a lot of the book relied solely on lust and sexual temptation. The flirting, rather than being character driven banter, relied mostly on sexual innuendo. Not so in A Lot Like Love. The sex scene arrived with a BANG and laboured for a good chunk of more detailed content which may satisfy some readers but makes me either scoff, chuckle or roll my eyes sometimes all three.
I much prefer the thrill of tension rather than the actual nitty-gritty of characters "finally succumbing", haha. My fave of hers is. View all 13 comments. Feb 16, Catarina rated it really liked it Shelves: Jordan is a billionaire heir that suddenly sees herself with the FBI trying to make a deal with her.
She is connected with powerful people that the FBI wants behind bars so they make a deal with her: I only found out recently about Julia James, but she definitely writes good books. Sweet and funny. A little predictable but extremely enjoyable. Writing Style: Third person, dual POV. Fun, addictive writing that leave us with a funny tingling sensation in the stomach.
Character Development: Nick was great and I loved him. Jordan was really sweet and for a billionaire heir that had everything to go wrong, she is pretty good.
It was also great to see more of the previous main characters. Seriously heated moments. May 04, Emily May rated it really liked it Shelves: Another fun, easy and enjoyable read from Julie James!
This is my second favourite book of hers that I've read so far, better than Just the Sexiest Man Alive and Something About You but it still doesn't quite match up to my first and favourite: Practice Makes Perfect I'm still obsessed with J. As her latest release, this was the steamiest of the lot with some very sexy and descriptive bathtime fun and the tall, dark and stubbled hero we can always expect from Ms James.
The story this time d Another fun, easy and enjoyable read from Julie James! The story this time didn't feature a heroine who's a lawyer but a billionaire heiress and expert wine taster makes for some very interesting dirty talk about smooth fullness called Jordan, whilst mr dark and sexy Nick is an FBI agent.
The FBI approach Jordan to help them infiltrate the charity fundraiser of a fellow wine lover and suspected criminal. Nick is Jordan's fake date who's mission involves planting recording devices inside the suspect's office.
When not everything goes to plan at the party, Jordan and Nick are forced to keep up the charade a little longer than originally planned. As they are both so dedicated to playing their parts they 'reluctantly' smooch and get close - only in case anyone's watching, of course ; Julie James knows how to write excellent chick lit and always manages to pull off witty and sarcastic banter better than most writers I know. Even if you're not really into romance novels or chick lit, you can't help but be amused by the neverending humourous remarks thrown back and forth between the characters.
That's what I love so much about James' novels and why I know I'll be reading more from her in the future. View 1 comment. Holy Smokin' 5 Star Read!! Julie James just keeps getting better and better and has delivered on all aspects with her 4th contemporary romance and has totally blown me away with the sinfully mouthwatering Nick McCall.
This was exactly what I needed after my last read which I had similar high expectations which ended up being a huge disappointment and in euphoria over how well this one turned out, I just might end up blowing a couple of kisses through Twitter to Ms.
James b Holy Smokin' 5 Star Read!! James because simply put, she just rocked my world with this one! Six years working vice for NYPD had seen Nick restless for more and he had ended up training to become an FBI agent and the undercover work keeps Nick on his toes providing him with a challenge that he relishes in when it comes to his job. The proud owner of the DeVine Cellars, Jordan is not your typical rich woman as she and her twin Kyle has always been taught to make their own way in the world regardless of how rich their father might be.
Stunningly beautiful with long blond hair, a svelte figure and Caribbean blue eyes, Jordan is not at all prepared when Mr. Tall, Dark and Smoldering himself walks in requesting her assistance in an undercover mission making her an offer that she would never be able to turn down. Once Jordan makes the deal to help the FBI along in nabbing Xander Eckhart who has been laundering large sums of money for Roberto Martino who had run the largest crime syndicate in Chicago for years and had just recently being arrested, its puts her in close proximity to Mr.
Assist the agent in charge with his first undercover assignment until inevitable circumstances end up with him playing out the designated undercover role. Prepared to dislike Ms. Rich Princess all the way, Nick is surprised and a little bit wary to find out that there is more to Jordan than that meets the eye and underneath all the media frenzy and public image is a sassy, kick-ass woman who makes him lose his senses — all in a good way.
Whilst Nick and Jordan both try to forget and fight how they start feeling about each other, the smoldering attraction that flares and heats up refuses to let go of its hold making this an immensely enjoyable read. And amidst all this, the villain makes evil plans of his own, driven to the brink of insanity by the way in which he has been betrayed by a woman who he trusted and had set his sights on before his world had started crumbling and crashing down on him.
All in all, a very satisfying read with a hotter than sin hero that I would just love to find wrapped in one of my birthday presents this month!
List of things I loved: He is smoldering sensuality rolled into a very enticing package with a bad boy scuff around his angular jaw from time to time which makes me just want to run my hands all over him.
She is smart, beautiful, down-to-earth, loyal to the boot and entirely lovable. She is just sassy enough with the sarcastic quips that she exchanges with Nick, exactly what Nick needs to stand up and notice that his life as a bachelor was going through its very last stages with her in his life. I loved everything about Jordan and found her to be just perfect for Mr. Tall, Dark and Smoldering!
Just cracks me up whenever that reference comes up! Always a plus point when the conversation is a stimulator in a romance. I just love the fact that both Something About You and A Lot Like Love has book covers that depict both the hero and heroine attired in outfits described in the story. A story that earns big, fat 5 stars from this reader, and very highly recommended for fans of Julie James and fans of contemporary romance which features a hot hero, a sassy heroine and a little bit of danger thrown into the mix to give the story an extra edge.
When will that be out is the question of the month. Hopefully Ms. James would answer that before I burst from the innate curiosity that is simmering inside of me right now.

What I like about Julie James' style of writing is the snappy dialogue, the strong female characters…and of course their sexy male counterparts. Jordan and Nick have terrific chemistry She samples wine the conventional way, swirling, swishing and spitting, he wants to pour and taste… in a most unconvention 5 Stars!
She samples wine the conventional way, swirling, swishing and spitting, he wants to pour and taste… in a most unconventional way. Very sexy and so much fun. Some of the characters from Something About You are along for the ride, but we also get to meet some terrific new characters, namely Kyle who looks to be the focus of her next book. Amusing banter, sizzling sexual intimacy, a strong-willed heroine who stands on her own, a sexy alpha hero who wants her flat on her back, throw in a some suspense, and you've got yourself another first-rate read in this entertaining series!
View all 9 comments. Mar 11, Catherine rated it really liked it Shelves: Why would I wait so long? Well, contemporaries and I rarely agree. I find a lot of the characters ridiculous and not at all authentic. It just drives me insane, so I rarely pick them up. But I finally had to take a chance on James.
I had to see what all the fuss was about. Luckily, this did not turn out to be another one where I ended up wanting to strangle the characters. I actually enjoyed it a lot! It was funny and cute and was a quick read. I really liked Nick.
He was approachable and funny and had a great relationship with his family. I loved all the conversations he had with his family and thought his mom was hilarious. Something inside Nick snapped. That was his fake girlfriend in there. Sitting at the table where they had just shared cheese fries the night before.
And if she thought she could throw scorching hot sex-looks to any pansy-ass scarf boy who wandered into her shop, she had another thing coming. Jordan was likable as well, but she was a little too perfect for me. I think most of her shining moments came in dialogue with other characters.
Especially with her brother. I loved her trips to the prison to visit him. The bickering between them was spot on and I giggled every time Jordan would get exasperated over him being in so much trouble because of Twitter. Plus, I think this book will date itself pretty quickly with all the pop culture references. I found the teasing he received from people to be funny, but I have to admit that I rolled my eyes when I heard the comparison.
I liked seeing him being ragged on, but I would have preferred it to be for another reason. I just found the whole Sawyer is so hot thing to be tired and overplayed. I enjoyed the fast pace of the book and found it hard to put down. It felt a little too short for me to get really attached. I found myself entertained by it, but I never became too invested. I suppose I would have needed a bit more depth in the characters and relationship for that.
Despite not being as wowed as some by my first experience with Julie James I still plan to try a few more by her. Favorite Quote: Now there was a topic upon which he could wax poetic. Who are you eying for the Final Four? It's quite masculine," Pete said. Review originally posted on Fiction Vixen. View all 20 comments.
View review here at Under the Covers I have a confession to make. But you know what? To hell with it! James surprised me by making Jordan a down-to-earth sweetheart who has a great work ethic and a sassiness that I loved!
Jordan is not your typical heiress. In fact, I would definitely agree with Xander and Nick on this and say that Jordan was seriously out of their league! She was a fantastic heroine that I loved to bits! And let me tell you, the fact that he can handle a gun is hotter as hell! Jordan and Nick were perfect together!
I loved their idle banter and their heated arguments. The two were amazing! Kyle is a trip even as he is doing his time in prison for his twitter meltdown. I loved the brother-sister love between Kyle and Jordan. So excited! I devoured this book and I almost wished I slowed down a little. In the end, it was worth it. Every page is fantastic. With the right amount of humor, James had me laughing out loud, gaining me some pretty awkward stares in public.
For fans of all types of romance, Julie James is one you must check out. A Lot Like Love is a perfect summer read to heat up your vacations! I recognize that sexy jaw and mouth! Favourite Quote: And if she thoughts he could throw scorching hot-sex- looks to any pansy-ass scarf-boy who wandered into her shop, she had another thing coming. He had a look of his own to show the douchebag. View all 25 comments. Feb 07, kilty rated it really liked it. Surface charm!

This second book in the FBI series does not disappoint. With an engrossing plot, and sexual tension that gradually heats up to fire-hot, you can't put this down once you start! It seems Jordan is part of a select group that gets invited to Xander Eckhart's restaurant once a year I have to congratulate Julie James.
It seems Jordan is part of a select group that gets invited to Xander Eckhart's restaurant once a year for a charity event. Eckhart is suspected of laundering money for a notorious mobster the FBI has been trying to pin down for years. To aid in this capture, the FBI asks Jordan to take one of their agents, as her date to this exclusive event. Of course it ends up being Nick, the ruggedly handsome, and maybe a little dangerous, tough FBI agent. He is evenly matched, because Jordan is smart, sassy, independent, and has the elegant looks of Grace Kelly.
This story was so much fun with lots of great lines, like this one: And of course any woman spending Valentine's Day with a date who looked like Nick was guaranteed a night of endless great sex. Hot, scruffy-jawed, throw-me-down-on-the-table, mindblowing sex. Probably with dirty words. Or this: I can't wait to pick up the next installment to this series, which just came out this month: About That Night.

With those blazing green eyes and possessive, rough, passionate ways, Nick swoops in, grabs hold, and steals hearts! I adored these two characters!
Very hot! Julie James seems to excel at the fine line between love and hate. Jordan and Nick definitely landed on the hot chemistry side of the line! D The wine back story held very little interest or magic for me though.
Thanks for another great read Ladies! View all 17 comments. Aug 28, Anja H. Just like the previous one in this series, I read this in one sitting of about 4 hours. I just couldn't stop! Review coming soon! Nick and Jordon were awesome, and I love the cheaky conversations between them. A very romantic story. View all 6 comments. Apr 25, Anachronist rated it did not like it.
Why I read it: I have sadistic friends. Some of them keep borrowing me copies of romantic fiction, especially when I am planning to go away for a day or two. I am a compulsive reader, I am an addict, I read everything, good, bad and ugly and they take advantage. Sometimes I shrug these offers off, sometimes I succumb to them.
This one had good reviews on Goodreads so I thought: It is a truth universally acknowledg Why I read it: It is a truth universally acknowledged that that a single woman in a possession of a good fortune like several millions and a wine shop not to mention a fine prospect of inheriting more when the daddy kicks the bucket , must be in want of a husband.
Or at least a steady boyfriend. Or two. Something must be wrong with her, right? Some skeletons in a closet full of Gucci shoes? Soon you find out. Beware, it is shocking, even heartrending. You see, her twin brother, Kyle, has created a kind of Twitter crisis when his ex-girlfriend broke off by posting a video of herself giving another guy a blowjob.
Small wonder poor little Kyle hit the roof, hacked into the system and immobilized the whole site for 48 hours or so. Imagine that. No Twitter. How people communicated during that period? Sign language? Snail mail, perish the thought? Really, a terrorist attack, nothing less!
Anyway now Kyle, like every other criminally-inclined citizen, is serving his time. As you perhaps know or maybe not a prison is not exactly a health spa. Our poor millionaire is being on the brink of mental breakdown, not to mention the fact that his inmates pick on him constantly, complete dumbasses all of them but they have to be that way so the story continues.
You see, she is not only a great girl see the section above but she also loves her bro insanely. Aww… Off she goes to a party organized by a certain Xander Eckhart, a restaurateur who is doing business with gangsters or mafia and secretly nourishes other plans concerning Jordan guess what.
Her partner for the night a. Valentine is smiling benignly from one fluffy cloud and white doves are crapping on your car while kissing furiously…sorry, just a daydream.
I am pretty sure even a ten-year old girl playing with her Barbie would know what happened next. Jordan and Nick fall for each other. They find they are simply compatible, there is no other word for that. They cannot get enough of…each other of course pst, pst, yes, they go to bed!
What I liked: Not much.
Every cloud has a silver lining. The main heroine. She was simply obnoxiously perfect. No women are like her, neither in real life nor in good books. Once again a plastic Barbie doll comes to my mind.
A study in pink… The main male lead. Nick was so incredibly boring in his special-operative routine that I gagged from time to time. Not to mention the fact that he, supposedly a great FBI agent, never hesitated to reveal his real identity to any of his casual sex partners which created quite a commotion at one point. His relationship with Jordan lacked psychological reality.
The plot. It was so very predictable. The Kyle-in-prison situation was simply artificial and false. Any millionaire would buy his way out of trouble but not Kyle. Saving up for another Maserati? Or rather another Mac? The novel contained too much backstory infodumps et all to make the plot really fast-flowing and interesting to me even on a completely superficial level. From time to time the well-known landscape outside my window seemed to be far more compelling.
A dog barking. A cat scratching its ear. A rat in a dustbin. An old car coughing loudly on the road. Children eating ice-cream. Fascinating stuff, especially when compared to this book! No good sense of humour to alleviate my boredom.
