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

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.

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'.

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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Despite not having read Julie James' previous novel Something About You, I decided to pick up A Lot Like Love. I hesitated at first because I knew that it was more romantic suspense than comedy, the same reason I hadn't read Something About You. See, I adored her first two books, particularly Practice Makes Perfect, which are both romantic comedies but was afraid I wouldn't like her more serious novels. Plus I'm also not a fan of very spelled out sex scenes, which is why I don't read more from the straight romance genre. I like a little left to the imagination, you know? It also may have something to do with my sheltered, conservative upbringing. But in spite of these reservations, I was in need of a lighter, contemporary read, and it's hard to find someone who does sarcastic humor better than Julie James.

Billionaire heiress and wine aficionado Jordan Rhodes' life is pretty perfect. Her wine store is doing very well and she's happy to have broken the heiress mold and earned her own living. Although she has little in common with their elitist snobbery, regular clients in the likes of wine collector Xander Eckhart signify that she's made it. She even tells herself she's content without a man in her life. The only thing that she could want is for the release of her twin brother Kyle, who's in prison for one of the largest (and funniest) website hacks ever.

Undercover FBI agent Nick McCall is one of the finest at his job and he wouldn't have it any other way. Other than casual flings, Nick doesn't need a woman in his life, a fact he courteously informs each woman he dates up front. His only want is that he could attend his mother's 60th birthday party.
