4.0 out of 5 stars Twitter Terrorist vs. Meth-Lab Rylann, 10 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: About That Night (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
Kyle Rhodes is an heir to a billionaire, a millionaire computer genius in his own right, and more commonly known as the Twitter Terrorist.

Rylann Pierce is a top Assistant US Attorney (AUSA), recently returned to Chicago and known amongst her colleagues as Meth-Lab Rylann.

Yet when these two come face-to-face across a courtroom on the day of Kyle's official release, it's not the first time they've met. Nine years ago a walk home and a moment of surprising chemistry led to the date that never was. Now all these years later they're different people, in different places, yet that chemistry is hotter than ever. But can an ex-con and an AUSA ever find love? And if they do, how will they dare ever tell anyone about it?

Julie James returns with another of her FBI linked novels. The link is fairly tenuous, though we do get glimpses of both Jack and - Rylann's new boss - Cameron (Something About You), as well as Nick and - Kyle's twin sister - Jordan (A Lot Like Love). Despite the links, though, this story is most definitely all about Kyle and Rylann.

Actually, unlike the previous novels, there's no single underlying crime plot here. Instead we just have Kyle and Rylann adjusting to the fresh changes in their lives, while also attempting to deal with the heat between them. Which works perfectly, in my opinion.

They're a funny pair, quick with their quips, though Rylann is more sarcastic, while Kyle leans towards light-hearted. She likes a well-planned life and he's more spontaneous, but they balance each other beautifully. There's plenty of James' usual humour sprinkled amidst the legal issues and computer geekery. Add in a sprinkle of romance and loads of heat and you can't ask for more.

Actually, if I had one niggle it would be that there might have been a little too much of Rylann's legal life. While it was nice to have James back in the more familiar lawyer role that was missing in her last book, at the same time it was just too much legalese at times. Having said that, it was only a minor quibble and it meant we got to see Agent Wilkins again, which is always fun.

Another enjoyable winner from a great author. I'd love to have more of Agent Wilkins' meet-cute or clueless lawyer Cade Morgan next. But that's the problem with reading these books so soon after release - it means a long wait for the next one.
