From the first page I loved Jordan and she’s the exact type of person I’d be friends with. The sarcasm and jokes exchanged with her brother were so great and even though the Rhodes family isn’t good at communication and expressing their feelings, you can really feel the love between brother, sister, and father. On top of that, I loved how down to earth Jordan was. She might be the heiress to a fortune, but she never once looks down on Nick as being out of her league or not good enough for her; she takes people as they are on their own merits. And the way she flirts and banters with Nick during their fake dating was great. Jordan’s not afraid to go after what she wants and she’s confident in her own skin and that’s incredibly sexy; something Nick doesn’t miss.
I love everything about this book and for me, it’s perfect. From the characters to the writing to the plot, it just checks all my boxes of an excellent romance. I can’t recommend this book enough to anyone looking for a great contemporary romance with a light touch of suspense.
I intend to finish the series.
So rich girl meets blue collar boy and circumstances force them together and guess what? They fall for each other. I loved Jordan and Nick, on the outside they were complete opposites but as the plot developed they actually found some things they had in common. Julie James made Jordan more relatable than the usual rich girl. She was warm, friendly, loyal, and funny. Nick was more intense but he had such charm that I could see why Jordan was attracted to him. He was confident enough to handle Jordan’s life as an heiress and he never once made her ashamed of her fortune. I liked both characters for different reasons and to me they were a balanced couple. With the light suspense element, the romance was front and center just how I like it.
A Lot Like Love had a lot going for it in the supporting cast department too. Aside from catching up with Cameron and Jack, it also introduced Jordan’s brother Kyle. He had a quirky sense of humor even when his circumstances were difficult.
Final Verdict: The second book in the FBI/Attorney series is just as good as the first. Jordan and Nick kept each other on their toes and the plot was fun, sexy, and just a good time.

Sie ist Mitglied der High-Society von Chicago, lebt in einem schicken Haus, fährt einen Maserati (Geschenk von ihrem steinreichen Vater) und ist Eigentümerin eines florierenden Weinladens.
Wäre da nicht ihr Zwillingsbruder Kyle, der aufgrund eines '"Twitter-Zwischenfalls"' im Gefängnis sitzt.
Und das ist auch der Grund, warum Jordan einen Deal mit dem FBI eingeht und einwilligt, FBI-Agent Nick McCall als ihren Freund auszugeben und auf die einem engen Kreis von Gästen vorbehaltene Spendengala von Xander Eckhart einzuschleusen, den das FBI der Geldwäscherei zu überführen gedenkt. Was als Undercover-Aktion von ein paar Tagen geplant ist, wird aufgrund unerwarteter Wendungen zu einer mehrwöchigen 'Beziehung'....
In gewohnt witziger Weise läßt Julie James diese zwei unterschiedlichen Charaktere Jordan und Nick '"aufeinanderprallen"'. Die "mit dem 'goldenen Löffel im Mund aufgewachsene"' Millionenerbin und der italienisch-stämmige, in Brooklyn aufgewachsene "Mr. 'I don't do love"'.
Sarkasmus, Witz, Situationskomik und Spannung... alles dabei.
Von mir "'nur"' vier Sterne, da mir persönlich "Something about you'" bedeutend besser gefallen hat. Die Dialoge und die Aktionen reichen meiner Meinung nach nicht an den Vorgänger ran.
Aber auf alle Fälle ein lesenswertes Buch, der Lesespaß ist garantiert.
I enjoyed About that Night immensely. Really loved Kyle and Rylann. They were "real" people and it was easy to care about them and relate to them. Rylann plans her life religiously and knows what she wants and what she will have to do to achieve that and she works hard to get to where she is. Kyle although he is rich he never comes across as spoiled or presumptious and he has also worked really hard to get what he has got.
Also liked the fact that their relationship developed quite slowly. They had to work things out like how they were going to make it work because of her job etc. They are really sweet when they are together too. It was so much fun watching their story unfold. They did fight their chemistry together but what was more fun what watching them succumb to that chemistry as well!
The book doesn't have the suspense or mystery that the previous books have had but saying that I enjoyed the fact that it was light on these things and focused more about the relationship between Kyle and Rylann.
Other character's from previous books show up in this and I would advise reading A Lot Like Love (Berkley Sensation) which is the previous book to this one before reading About That Night as Kyle plays quite a big role in that book and it's where we first meet him.
Julie James is a bit of a mystery to me because although I really like her books and I've read them all, I tend to find one or both of the main characters really annoying because they they spend the entire book arguing and bickering over whether they should be with each other. I get kind of frustrated with that and end up feeling like I want to hit both characters over the head! With this book I did not feel that and I can honestly say I really enjoyed this book because of that. The characters were relatable and not so annoying.
Overall a very enjoyable, fun, fresh and light contemporary romance and I look forward to reading the next one very soon!
