Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When a high-priced prostitute is murdered in the neighboring hotel room, sole witness Cameron Lynde�s safety is in the very capable but unforgiving hands of FBI special agent Jack Pallas, who thinks she sold him out three years ago on a case involving the Chicago Mob. As an assistant U.S. attorney, she�s fully cognizant of the risks, especially since the client caught on videotape engaging in kinky sex is the well-known, married U.S. senator from Illinois, recently appointed chair of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. But as the murderer closes in, Jack and Cameron must put aside their differences to stay alive and solve the case. James has crafted another sizzling, vibrant contemporary legal romance set in her hometown, with edgy banter and edge-of-your-seat encounters between the forces of law and those corrupted by access to power. The sequel, A Lot Like Love (2011), continues the Martino investigation subplot with another FBI agent, Jack�s friendly rival, Nick McCall. --Lynne Welch

Contemporary romance fans will rejoice in SOMETHING ABOUT YOU, the third delightful contemporary by Julie James. In Chicago, Illinois, hard-working Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde has decided to treat herself to a weekend at the luxurious Peninsula hotel while her newly refinished hardwood floors dry at her Victorian home. However, instead of getting the R & R she planned for, she finds herself the sole witness to a high-profile murder in the hotel room next door. After the authorities find a videotape with a U.S. Senator involved with a dead call girl, FBI Special Agent Jack Pallas is put in charge of the case. Of all the agents who could be assigned the investigation, Jack is the last one Cameron wants to see. Three years ago, when she was a new Assistant U.S. Attorney, she had to shut down an organized crime case in which Jack had worked undercover for several years. Likewise, Jack isn't thrilled to see Cameron since he believes she's directly responsible for a demotion he received from the Department of Justice. Will the feisty Cameron and the brooding Jack be able to set aside their past differences to solve this high profile case? And what about their former chemistry that seems to be as strong as ever? In a market where too few really good contemporary romances are being published, Julie James is breathing life back into this subgenre with her witty and wonderful love stories full of great chemistry and sparkling verbal repartee. There's something about Julie James's unique writing that will make readers definitely notice SOMETHING ABOUT YOU!

I absolutely adore Julie James, though she writes in a genre I normally avoid like the plague. I never read contemporary romances. I tend to avoid titles that look like they might veer off into chick-lit territory (Julie James' don't). I don't mind a good solid mystery, but a romance about a detective and the poor little lady who gets caught in a mafia crime? Not my thing.

Well, not my thing unless Julie James is writing it, because anything she sets her pen to turns out fantastic. James' books are smart, witty, funny, sweet, intense, exciting, well-paced, surprisingly believable, exciting, heartwarming...they just are. She can write about a movie star or a law firm or a murder investigation, and she picks up each new plot and uses it to give her readers exactly what they want.

If you've read any of her prior books, you know that she's an absolute master of romances where the hero and heroine start the book hating one another. Now, that's pretty common. What separates James from the pack is that her heros and heroines are mature, rational people whose behavior makes sense. In Something About You, she tackles the Big Misunderstanding. Usually, Big Misunderstanding plots are the worst. You're reading along thinking, one adult conversation would save these people hundreds of pages of heartbreak! And then the whole book seems like a waste. Or else, in order to prolong the misunderstanding, either the hero or the heroine throws a fit, makes a scene, starts behaving like a child. Well, sit back and see how it ought to be done.

Cameron and Jack have a professional history. Cameron - a lawyer - was getting ready to prosecute a mafia boss that Jack - a detective - spent a couple years undercover investigating.

I just finished this book today and was sad to see it come to an end. Here you have a Asst. US Attorney Cameron Lynde trying to make a name for herself in a primarily male dominated world. To only find herself pulled into a scandalous murder involving a US Senator, when all she wanted was a good night sleep. Then to top it off to come face to face Special FBI Agent Jack Pallas, the only man who could rock her world but also despised her for ruining his career, or so he thought. I loved Cameron's spunky attitude. It was nice to see a high ranking professonal women with her wit and love of life still intact. She rarely spared anyone from her infectious sense of humor.I found myself cracking up at the dialog between her and everyone she pretty much came in to contact with. The sexual tension between Jack and Cameron was burning up the pages at times and just plain fun to experience. I thought that even with all the hilarious dialog between them the story itself was touching and full of suspense. Jack was the ulimate sexy male that had no problem speaking his mind, but still had the ability to appreciate her. The murder plot had a great spin to it and kept me at the edge of my seat. I gotta say I will be able to think of stallions and cowgirls quite the same way again.

In a fit of madness I read about 25 romance novels while I was bedridden for two weeks. 'Something About You' was the *only* one in the bunch I had no qualms with whatsoever.

It has two intelligent leads, one of which is delightfully brooding (but never too much to have witty conversations with the heroine or to accept his growing attraction and act accordingly). They talk like actual human beings capable of rational thought, handle themselves professionally in spite of a misunderstanding some years ago that drove a wedge between them (thankfully not a silly one), have great chemistry and respect the hell out of each other.

Just when I was about to give up on the genre this book rekindled my faith. Strong hero, strong heroine, no emotional blackmail, a totally equal relationship, great sex and everything wrapped in a neat package of unassuming, light, precise and witty language.
