FBI agent Nick McCall was looking forward to a break after six intense months undercover. But as one of Chicago's top agents he can hardly say no when his boss asks him to help a junior colleague out. Even if it does mean meeting Jordan Rhodes, who's too rich, too blonde and too everything for Nick's tastes.
Luckily for both of them that Nick's role is strictly behind the scenes. Until a few unexpected problems throw them together for longer than either of them had planned...
In true Julie James' style, the lead characters of her fourth novel do not hit it off in the best way. With both of them too clever, too guarded and too sarcastic for their own good, the scene is set for a sexy personality clash of very strong wills.
Returning to the same setting as her last book - Something about You - there are a couple of cameos from Jack and Cameron, as well as glimpses of cheeky Agent Wilkins, combining with new characters like Agent Huxley and Jordan's brother, Kyle, all helping to keep the banter and wit going, even when the main two aren't together.Read more ›
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 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.
This novel, however, appears to be written for the sake of meeting the publisher's deadline rather than for the pleasure of an audience.
Julie James began writing for the more discerning romance fiction audience but that rapidly transgressed to a lower IQ level audience. Its completely unfair as those people have an array of trashy novels that they may choose from - no need to steal Julie James as well! But I've noticed this terrible fate awaits many a novelist and its an utter shame.
The plot for this novel (bad boy FBI agent forced to work undercover as our heroine's date to an exclusive party) is beyond cliched and overused. The whole bad boy FBI agent (predictably unintelligent) and the postgraduate-educated billionaire princess coupling is even further tediously exhausting. The two seem to have little in common and their conversation (that consists of sarcasm that isn't even witty) is appallingly tedious as well as unimaginative.
The only part of the novel which has any element of the Julie James style is the banter between the preppy FBI agents and the heroine and her brother. Otherwise I don't recognise who wrote this terrible excuse for a novel.
Even the suspense/criminal investigation is completely far-fetched and so lacking in plot that its rather embarrassing.Read more ›
