I’m so glad I discovered this Julie James! Something About You (FBI/US Attorney 1) was a 4.25 for story and a 3.5 for Heat. This was a fun, romantic, smart, witty, hot, and had great, intelligent characters.
US Attorney, Cameron, is getting her floors refinished and checks into a local hotel. She is awakened by the couple next door doing the nasty in a very loud, very long way. An hour later, she hears them again and calls the desk to complain. She peaks out the peephole and sees a man leaving the room. When security arrives, they find a dead hooker with a tape of her and a US Senator going at it. Special Agent Jack Pallas (Agent Hottie) is in charge of the investigation. He and Cameron have a pretty bad professional history, and despite some attraction, they seem to hate each other.
Jack is assigned to the case, which includes protecting Cameron, and finding out who tried to set up the Senator. Jack is clearly an excellent agent, but definitely shows more than a professional interest in Cameron. As soon as he takes her home to “protect” her on his motorcycle, you can feel the sparks flying.
Cameron’s friends and Jack’s partner are all great characters. Jack was a hot, alpha, brooding, dominant, sexy agent in a shoulder holster. Cameron is a smart, funny, independent attorney. Together, the sexual tension was high, the snarky, witty banter was fun, there was some laugh out loud parts, and a few short but hot sex scenes.
I really enjoyed this story and recommend it. I am looking forward to reading the next in the series.
Book 3, About That Night, also has an amazing rating!
Book 4, Love Irresistibly comes out in April, 2013.
