About That Night (FBI/US Attorney #3)
About That Night (FBI/U.S. Attorney) - Julie James

This will be fairly short. I didn't like this one. Seriously. The plot was ridiculous and I am sorry I could not really get over a woman with an important job like Rylann's would be okay with her dating a former criminal. Then again it's a new day in the world and white collar crimes seem to just be getting ignored right now. That said, I didn't really like the male lead Kyle at all. I thought the two of them didn't really fit and thought the book focused too much on Nick and Jordan from book #2 for my taste. 

 

"About That Night" has Rylann Pierce coming face to face with the guy she hasn't seen in 9 years after having an epic meet-cute, billionaire heir, Kyle Rhodes. Now that Rylann is working for the U.S. Attorney's office, she is in charge of wrapping up Kyle's criminal case. Initially brushing him off, she ends up having to seek him out again when another case comes up that needs Kyle's help. 

 

I thought the whole Kyle is a witness that needs to help out the U.S. Attorney's could have been done better. I thought that James just rushed to wrap up that plot-line. The rest of the book was just Kyle and Rylann being together and they were not a big enough draw for me after a while. I think that James included so much from Jordan and Nick since there was not enough to hang a whole book on with these two. 

 

The sex scenes were meh. Ultimately this book is mostly about Rylann having to decide between her job and Kyle, and I was all for her dumping Kyle.

A Lot Like Love (FBI/US Attorney #2)
A Lot like Love - Julie James

Sorry, this one did not sing for me like book #1 did. I didn't like the male lead that much and then the whole book barely made any sense when it came down to the whole plot point with the female lead's brother somehow magically getting his prison sentence waved. The bad guy also seemed really dumb to me in this as well. 

 

"A Lot Like Love" follows billionaire heiress Jordan Rhodes and FBI agent Nick McCall. Jordan is "asked" by the FBI to help them plant a listening device in a close friend's office at a party she gets asked to go to every year. If she agrees, she can help her brother who is currently in prison get his sentence dropped and he will be out of jail. Jordan balks at doing this until she realizes that if she doesn't get her brother out soon, something may happen to him while he is imprisoned. 

 

Nick McCall is usually undercover. He thinks that the Rhodes assignment should be easy. It was until the agent who was supposed to play her boyfriend comes down with the stomach flu (yeah right plot contrivance) and then he goes as Jordan's new boyfriend to the party. Due to the man they want to eavesdrop on deciding to hire a PI to follow Nick around, Nick and Jordan have to play boyfriend/girlfriend for a lot longer than one night.

 

I didn't really buy the set-up in this one like I did in the last book. It also didn't help that I did not think that Jordan and Nick had any chemistry. We get to see how callous he is to a woman he was seeing long-term who he decided needed to know the score (he doesn't believe in commitment). 

 

I was happy to see some old faces from the last book (Jack and Cameron) but it made me sad since I kept comparing them to Nick and Jordan and finding the latter lacking in every way. 

 

The dialogue was fine, I think if the set-up and leads had been better this could have been more enjoyable than I found it. I thought the rush to "I love yous" was quite unrealistic too. At least with Jack and Cameron there was a backstory there and we knew going in they were interested in each other until the whole thing between them blew up.

Something About You FBI/US Attorney #1
Something About You (FBI / US Attorney, #1) - Julie James

Wow. The first book in the FBI/US Attorney series by Julie James was very hot. It also had a plot I could sink my teeth into. Too bad that books #2 and #3 didn't live up to the hype for me.

 

"Something About You" has a smart and dedicated US Attorney (Cameron Lynde) and a dedicated FBI agent (Jack Pallas) that had a run in years ago that left things bitter between them. When Cameron ends up getting a hotel room next door to a murder, she is pulled into an FBI investigation. 

 

I really loved the characters of Cameron and Jack. You can see both sides to the story, but James manages to make you root for them to get it together already since you can see the chemistry between them. I also have to say that it was great to see two characters be competent at their jobs and not deny they are ambitious.

 

Their jobs/co-workers are just as important to this book and James manages to make them come alive (I seriously fell in love/like with the of Sam Wilkins). Cameron's two best friends are in it, but really it's her best friend Colin that is more present in this one. Her other best friend is in the process of getting married and only seems to be around to be a bit of a bridezilla. 

 

We do get little dribbles here and there before we get the full story of how Cameron and Jack who worked together years ago had a falling out, and it was definitely worth it. I also have to applaud James for not having Cameron keep things a secret from Jack for too long. I hate that in romance novels when the hero and heroine are kept apart because they decide to not tell each other the truth. Once the truth comes out, they definitely can't deny how attracted to each other they are anymore and then we get some red hot love scenes (5 stars for that alone). 

 

The dialogue was great and I cracked up a lot while reading this one. Very good flow. 

 

The setting of Chicago is always interesting to read about. James did a good job of incorporating the city into her book.

Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
About That Night (FBI/U.S. Attorney) - Julie James

Mmmm okay not as good as book #1. When I started to realize the ages of some of the characters from book #1 and #2 it took me out the story a lot because no way Cameron from book #1 could just pop up at the age she is 32 in charge of the US Attorney’s Office. Back to this book I really don’t see how Rylann’s job wouldn’t have been affected in the real world. The romance didn’t grab me either. I was actually more interested in Rylann’s friend and one of the agents we heard about from book #1, Sam. It be great to see an African American hero or heroine in one of her books.
