Something About You review

Something About You is the first novel I've read by Julie James but it will definitely not be the last. In fact, her books will be added to my automatic reads list alongside Nora Roberts and Julie Garwood.

The beginning was strong and funny. It's pretty well known that I don't read books that revolve around Washington, DC and the political world so I had a moment of unease when the fictional senior Senator from Illinois was brought into the story but I'm glad I didn't let that stop me from finishing the book.

Cameron was a fantastic female lead - smart, strong, and sarcastic. Just the type of female character I love to read. Jack was a total alpha FBI agent. He started off as an asshole but he grew on me pretty quickly and I ended up loving him. The action is well written and the entire plot has a great pace.

Often what sets a good book apart from a great book for me is the secondary characters. The secondary characters in Something About You were great and provided the perfect amount of comic relief. Wilkins, Amy, Collins, and the Chicago PD detectives and officers really rounded out the story and gave it a dimension that makes me want to visit them again and again.

I definitely recommend Something About You and will be eagerly seeking out the rest of James' books moving forward.


Fate has thrown two sworn enemies...

Of all the hotel rooms rented by all the adulterous politicians in Chicago, female Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde had to choose the one next to 1308, where some hot-and-heavy lovemaking ends with a death. And of all the FBI agents in Illinois, it had to be Special Agent Jack Pallas who gets assigned to this high-profile homicide. The same Jack Pallas who still blames Cameron for a botched crackdown three years ago—and for nearly ruining his career.

Into each other's arms...

Work with Cameron Lynde? Are they kidding? Maybe, Jack thinks, this is some kind of welcome-back prank after his stint away from Chicago. But it's no joke; the pair is going to have to put their rocky past behind them and focus on the case at hand. That is, if they can cut back on the razor-sharp jibes—and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension.
