Editorial Reviews

Review

"James' latest novel is ... filled with fast quips and chemistry that heats up the pages. Readers will love the back-and-forth between the main characters, but throughout the book the rest of the cast of characters and the story is a fantastic romantic comedy. This one would be great on the big screen."-RT BookReviews Magazine (Top Pick)

“ABOUT THAT NIGHT is Julie James’s best book to date! . . . It is utterly enchanting, sensual and fabulous. Julie James gives a robust voice to contemporary courtships! Amusing and sexy, Julie James's books are flirtatious temptations for every reader.”--Romance Junkies

"Soil" by Julie Kornegay
Drawing on elements of dark comedy and modern dysfunction, Kornegay’s novel is about the gravitational pull of one man’s apocalypse and the hope that maybe he can be reeled in from the brink. See more

"There are probably a lot of things bad-boy ex-cons don't know about good-girl prosecutors."
**********

Smug Dimples, Prosecutrix Pierce, Meth Lab Rylann and the Twitter Terrorist (or my favorite version of this that comes up El Twitter Terrorista) are all nicknames that our hero and heroine are called during ABOUT THAT NIGHT and it's the way these nicknames are used during the quick, witty banter that Kyle and Rylann have that drew me right in. What stood out the most as I was reading was that there's no huge angst our couple needs to overcome. This is about two people dealing with their pasts, finding a balance in the present with their careers and figuring out a way to be together for the long haul. It's incredibly enjoyable, and Julie James keeps hitting it just right on all levels - humor, story, sexiness - with her FBI series.

Kyle was first introduced in A LOT LIKE LOVE when we find out that not only is he Jordan's twin, but most recently, he became the Twitter Terrorist, labeled as such by the Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) handling his case at the time. There's a chapter early on when Kyle recounts the time leading up to and right after his drunken, broken heart takes down Twitter for 48 hours. When he finds himself in Tijuana trying to drown his sorrows, he also finds himself on the news as a wanted man. He boards a plane back to the U.S to face the music and is immediately taken into custody on the plane:

**********
...Kyle watched as two men wearing standard-issue government suits - clearly FBI agents - boarded the plane and handed over a document to the pilot.

"Yep, that would be me," Kyle said, grabbing his backpack from underneath the seat in front of him.

About That Night is humorous, sexy, and engaging; a perfect example of why I love Contemporary Romance!

Nine years ago, while in law school, Rylann Pierce met a potentially amazing guy at a bar. She let him walk her home and he gave her the kiss of a lifetime. She agreed to a date the next night, but he never showed up. She did eventually learn why, but he never called to apologize.

Now Rylann is an assistant U.S. Attorney; she's just broken up with her boyfriend and as part of her six-month plan to get over him she moves back to Chicago from California, where she'd been living with her ex. She likes her job and her co-workers, and quickly settles in to her new life.

Kyle Rhodes is the son of a billionaire and a computer genius who, up until five months ago, had been living a playboy lifestyle. When his supermodel girlfriend broke up with him over twitter, he was humiliated. After a few drinks, he drunkenly decided he could save himself the public embarrassment of being dumped via social media by releasing a virus that shuts Twitter down, earning the nickname "The Twitter Terrorist". Perhaps if he hadn't been drinking, he might have remembered that the feds have computer geeks working for them too; they arrest him and he's sent to federal prison. Now, after serving four months, he's being released early as part of an agreement with the U.S. Attorney's office. He can't believe it when the beautiful law student he was never able to forget walks into the courtroom, representing the U.S. Attorney's office.

He'd like to go out with Rylann, see how things go between them, but she rejects him - she's an assistant U.S. Attorney and he's an ex-con. Then, a case comes to her office and he's the only person who can help her.

I tore through James' first three books in a single weekend. Her characters are sarcastic, witty, intelligent, and funny. Then I got to "A Lot Like Love" and my enthusiasm dimmed just slightly. I really could have cared less about the wine lessons, but there was enough going on and enough witty banter that I still enjoyed the book. Now we have "About That Night".

The first problem that I have is the fact that there's not much of a conflict. She's a US Attorney and he's "billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes" (do you know how many times that phrase appears in the book? Just how many times does the reader have to be reminded how much money Kyle has?). Okay, so he's an ex-con. Rylann is very angsty about that, but so what? He was incarcerated for four months, and it wasn't for a violent crime. I'm not saying Rylann's character should not have taken pause, but the way she was carrying on, you would have thought Kyle was a serial killer or had at least kidnapped the Lindbergh Baby. All of Kyle's prison reflections ("Prison changes a man.") were just kind of silly too. Dude, you were in for FOUR MONTHS .

The second issue I have concerns "telling instead of showing". In James' other titles, we know her characters are dedicated and good at what they do because the reader gets to see them in action and experience things right along with them. For instance, in "Practice Makes Perfect", Payton experiences what has got to be the most horrifying court appearance ever known (flashing the courtroom, falling down, etc.) and pulls it off with grace and aplomb, and the reader gets to experience it right along with her, down to the fury she feels when she realizes the hero of the story is responsible.
