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

Review

"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

More About the Author

After graduating from law school, New York Times and Amazon #1 bestselling author Julie James clerked for the United States Court of Appeals.

After Hollywood producers optioned two of her scripts, she decided to leave the practice of law to write full-time.

Julie's books, which have been translated into sixteen languages, have been listed on the American Library Association's Reading List for Top Genre Novels, Booklist's Top 10 Romances of the Year, and have been featured as one of Cosmopolitan magazine's Red Hot Reads. Her seventh novel, IT HAPPENED ONE WEDDING, is now available.

Julie lives with her husband and two children in Chicago, where she is currently working on her next book.

The hot chemistry and sexy bantering between the hero and heroine 5.
Susanne
James was pitch perfect with A Lot Like Love - it's a fun, light contemporary romance that doesn't take itself too seriously and is full of great characters.
Jennifer
Just like the first book, I read this one quickly and can't wait to start number 3.

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.

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.

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'.

This sequel to James' Something About You (Berkley Sensation) is a good read with a lot of romance, suspense and some good laughs. Jordan Rhodes is a charming and witty wine shop owner in Chicago. Nick McCall is a sexy FBI agent who enlists Jordan in an undercover bust. Naturally, a romance between the two ensues. The chemistry is good, the dialogue is witty and I found myself wishing I had all the wines James describes alongside me as Jordan and Nick drink their way through Chicago and Napa Valley. If I had any complaint, it's that the book moved a bit fast. However, I enjoyed reading it and would definitely recommend it.

Gotta say I was disappointed with this book. I loved JJ's previous books, specially Something About You and Practice Makes Perfect. When I read the other reviews I was expecting something in their caliber, but I felt A Lot Like Love was seriously lacking. The sexual tension was good, but it didn't come close to what we have in SAY. And I really did not feel the emotional connection between the characters. I know her last two books (this one included) are a little heavier on the sex factor than her first ones, but it not bother me with Something About You. In this book, however, I had a really hard time trying to get anything deeper from the characters than just lust.

On the positive side, the heroine was not a disappointment. I found Jordan to be a very smart, witty, sexy, funny and confident woman. She knows who she is and what she wants. I really admired that about her. She was the highlight of the book and the sole reason why I'm giving it 3 stars instead of 2. Nick was just Ok.

Overall A Lot Like Love didn't work for me.
