Book review: Something About You by author Julie James

"Something about You" by Julie James is the third book release for author Julie James. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy of her 4th release A Lot Like Love a while back and really enjoyed it so i decided to seek out her other books and see if they were as good. If you like FBI guys with your romance this book is a good choice for you. Below is a little bit about the book.

Something About You

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 in bloodshed. 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 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…

I loved this one. I literally sat down and read it in one big gulp. lol It had a nice smooth pace that just kept you reading. Three years ago Jack was undercover for the FBI when his cover was blown and a DEA agent was killed and he was injured. Eventually though they thought they had enough evidence to put the evil crack dealer in prison for good, but when it came time to indict the U.S. Attorney's office said they couldn't do it. Namely it was Cameron Lynde a sexy assistant U.S. attorney who informed him that they would not be prosecuting. He was so upset that when approached by a reporter after finding out blurted out a very nasty comment about Cameron. He nearly got himself fired but instead was transferred to a remote post in North Dakota for 3 years. Little did he know that Cameron was the one who went to bat for him to keep from getting fired. He think she's the one who made sure he got transferred. She was still new to the U.S, Attorney's office and didn't want to rock the boat so she had done what her boss told her. Little did she know he had ulterior motives. Flash back to current time and Cameron kind of witnesses a murder of sorts. Guess who is back in town and assigned to the case? YUP Jack Pallas. They decide since Cameron is the only witness and no one knows that she knows something she needs protection. The local police start out with this detail but it isn't long before Jack decides he needs to take over. Can he catch the killer before he gets to Cameron? Will Cameron tell Jack what really happened 3 years ago? There was just the right amount of suspense and romance mix in this book for me. I really enjoyed it. Read this one first then hit A Lot Like Love. They can be read separately but some of the characters are in both. I give Something About You by Julie James 5 Modokker Book Pick Stars. It's been a while since i read a book in one sitting and this one was worth it.
