Book Description

“Julie James rocks! You’ll laugh out loud and wish you had an FBI agent of your own.”—Sandra Hill, New York Times bestselling author

The FBI wants her cooperation.

As the daughter of a billionaire and the owner of the city’s top wine store, Jordan Rhodes is invited to the most exclusive parties in Chicago. But there’s only one party the FBI wants to crash: the charity fund-raiser of a famous restaurateur, who also happens to launder money for the mob. In exchange for her brother’s release from prison, Jordan is going to be there—with a date supplied by the Bureau.

Agent McCall just wants her.

As the top undercover agent in Chicago, Nick McCall has one rule: never get personal. This “date” with Jordan Rhodes is merely an assignment—one they’re both determined to pull off even if they can’t be together for five minutes before the sarcasm and sparks begin to fly. But when Nick’s investigation is compromised, he and Jordan have no choice but to pretend they’re a couple, and what starts out as a simple assignment begins to feel a lot like something more…

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Jordan Rhodes seems to have it all: money, fame, beauty, and her own successful business doing what she loves, introducing people to exceptional wines. But her twin brother Kyle is serving hard time after crashing Twitter in an emotional reaction to his girlfriend�s very public breakup with him. The FBI offers to commute Kyle�s sentence to time served if Jordan cooperates by getting one of their people into a very exclusive charity fundraiser. James� sassy, suspenseful sequel to Something About You (2010) exhibits her trademark sizzle and wit while focusing attention on another FBI undercover agent assigned to ferret out the secrets of Chicago�s Mob. James pits Nick McCall�s bad-boy appeal against Jordan�s warm heart in a classic romance trope and concludes with tantalizing hints about future installments set in the same intriguing venue. --Lynne Welch


"With only four books under her belt, Julie James has cemented her place as one of contemporary romance's superstars." --San Francisco Book Review

"You'll fall head over heels for 'A Lot Like Love'...[a] charming romance." --USA Today

"Fueled by equal measures of seductive wit, edge-of-the-seat suspense and scorching hot sexual chemistry, James' latest scintillating novel of romantic suspense is a rare treat." --Chicago Tribune

"With a nod to Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious, this latest from James (Something About You) blends plenty of sparkle with a vineyard-full of oenological detail.... Sexy fun, romance fans will pop their corks over this one."  --Library Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars A Whole Lot to Love With this Book (A Grade) March 1, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
There's a whole lot to love about A Lot Like Love from Julie James. This is a superb read, plain and simple. My inner fan girl cannot get enough of Julie's books and this may possibly be my favorite one of hers thus far. The writing is crisp, the dialogue is witty and the sexual tension is perfect without overtaking the plot. If you're longing for a great contemporary read, look no further. Julie James breathes life into a genre that so many say is dying.

A Lot Like Love takes place in Chicago, Illinois. FBI agent, Nick McCall has just come off of an undercover job where he helped take down twenty-seven dirty cops. The former Brooklyn boy is taking time off so he can go back home for his mother's sixtieth birthday party. But a sudden wrench is thrown in his plans. His boss asks him to help out on a case regarding Roberto Martino, who runs the largest crime syndicate in Chicago. They believe they can finally take him down through Xander Eckhart, a well-known restaurant and nightclub owner, who also has a wine bar that caters to the rich. They believe Eckhart is laundering drug money for Martino. The plan is to place a bug in Eckhart's office during an exclusive charity wine event on Valentine's Day that costs five thousand dollars a person. An Agent Huxley will be going as a guest while Eckhart acts as a consultant of sorts. The problem is that Huxley needs to go as someone's guest, and that's where Jordan Rhodes comes in. Jordan is the daughter to a billionaire who made his fortune through computers (think Steve Jobs). They believe Jordan will help them because of her twin brother, who's in prison.

Jordan may have a rich father, but she's financially independent. She's a business woman in her own right as the owner of DeVine Cellers, where she sells wine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kinda boring May 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved Julie James's first two books, and after reading her third I was unsure if I wanted to get this one. Its not that her writing is bad its just a little boring compared to the snappy lawyer, fighting the attraction till the end, super funny first two books. I don't know I guess there was just something missing for me that made me devour 'just the sexiest man alive'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving this author! March 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like Julie James' other books, you'll probably love this one too. My absolute favorite book of hers is Practice Makes Perfect - busted out laughing many times and would recommend it as a read for anyone who liked this book. This book appears to be the 2nd in a series, first being Something About You (another great read), which is about Agent Pallas and U.S. States Attorney Cameron Lynde - the books can be read independently of each other. A Lot Like Love has Pallas and Lynde as minor characters.

A Lot Like Love is about FBI Agent Nick McCall, who, while preparing to head out of town for his Mother's 60th birthday, gets roped into a last minute consultation on a junior agent's assignment. Junior agent ends up getting sick and Nick ends up having to go undercover.

Jordan is a billionaire's daughter, though proclaimed as financially independent - this piece kind of stuck with me... I live in Chicago and its very tough to believe that a small business owner, though ahead in her 10-year business plan, can afford a 4,000 sq. ft home in Lincoln Park; that's like half a million dollars in real estate at the LOW end and she still has money for first class vacations (/business trips) and designer shoes? Anyways, I'm sure as a billionaire's daughter she has money, but maybe her everyday expenses are covered by her income or her store really does phenomenally well- whatever, it doesn't really matter, I liked Jordan as a person. She was completely down to earth and real.

Nick is on the case for taking down a money launderer, Xander, and so he poses as Jordan's BF to get into Xander's exclusive party and bugs Xanders office.

This is the second book in Julie James’ FBI/U.S. Attorneys series and follows Special Agent Nick McCall as he works to expose a money laundering scheme involving a notorious Chicago crime boss, Roberto Martino, and famous restaurateur, Xander Eckhart. Nick, originally from Brooklyn, comes from a family of cops and is one of the top agents Chicago’s field office. He’s just finished a six month deep undercover operation that resulted in the exposure and arrest of over two dozen dirty cops and all he wants is a few days to visit his mother on her sixtieth birthday.

Nick’s career means he’s knows that plans sometimes change, and he takes it in stride when his boss pulls him in to help a younger agent, Seth Huxley, with his first solo op. Huxley needs to plant some listening devices in Xander’s office in order to connect him to Martino, and the ticket inside is wine store owner and billionaire heiress Jordan Rhodes. Although Jordan’s father is a highly successful, self-made CEO to a company that made its name selling anti-virus software Jordan and her twin brother grew up modestly, and were expected to make their own way as adults. Jordan has done very well for herself but Kyle, the “Twitter Terrorist” has recently landed himself in prison after drunkenly taking down the site in a two day denial of service attack.

Eckhart hosts a yearly wine tasting for charity and as an heiress and wine store owner Jordan is invited every year. Nick and Huxley approach Jordan - who isn’t too fond of the FBI after its overly-harsh treatment of her brother at the moment - to bring Huxley as her date so he can slip away and plant listening devices in Eckhart’s office.

Romance, slow, sensual, hot and steamy and a lot of sarcasm and fire. The first 70% of the book is one long foreplay session with the suspense simmering on the back burner. Read more
