Throwback Thursday Review: A Lot Like Love by Julie James

Throwback Thursday Reviews is dedicated to those books that have been around for years but you’ve only recently discovered. They’re the “New but Old” reads that are just too good NOT to talk about because there’s no such thing as “Too Many Books!”

This Week’s Throwback Thursday Book is:A Lot Like Love by Julia James

Format: .mobi (Purchased)
Publisher: Berkley Romance
Release Date: March 1, 2011

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…

Heiress Jordan Rhodes practically has the world at her feet and she’s invited to all the exclusive parties. That’s why the FBI wants to use her to get into a specific party. They’re looking to gather evidence against a famous restaurant owner they know is laundering money. If Jordan helps the FBI, they’ll do something big for her. She just has to pretend that Agent Nick McCall is her boyfriend for awhile.

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.
