Book review: A Lot Like Love by author Julie james

A Lot Like Love is the latest release of author Julie James. I read the back cover blurb of this book and decided i had to read it based on the fact the lead guy here was a FBI agent. My experience has led me to believe FBI guys are usually hot alpha males and i like those kind of guys in my books. Let's get to that blurb.

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 fundraiser 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. . .

Jordan's and Nick can't seem to stand each other but then Nick is forced to start spending lots of time with her trying to catch the bad guy by acting like boyfriend girlfriend sparks fly. Jordan is set to inherit billions from her dad one day so Nick feels he's not good enough for her and her money and the life style he thinks she has because of it. Every time he turns around it seems though she proves him wrong. She's not a stuck up society princess she's an amazing smart women with alot of guts. They spend a weekend in Napa tasting wine and getting to know each other and falling in love although both are afraid to tell the other. Then a misunderstanding breaks them apart right before the op is supposed to be over when the bad guy comes after Jordan with deadly intent. Can Jack get there in time??? hmmm probably it is a romance book right? lol There are some really funny moments in this book. I love a book that can do that. Make me laugh out loud.
