If you want sexy, chemistry, danger, suspense and interesting characters all rolled into one, then Julie James Something About You is the perfect romance for you. I had the privilege of winning this book from Jane at Dear Author and I’m so glad I entered the contest because I never would have found the author on my own.

Years earlier Cameron Lynde was told by her superior in the US Attorney’s office that she couldn’t try a case against a Chicago man and his organization who were suspected of all sorts of illegal activities. It cost an FBI undercover agent Jack Pallas not only the memories of being tortured by these men and the two years he was undercover, it cost him his position at his Chicago post with the FBI. Cameron took the fall for the decision not to prosecute and also went out on a limb to save Jack’s position with the FBI and he was transferred to their Nebraska office. He was totally unaware that Cameron came to his assistance and persuaded his boss not to fire him.

Now years later, she meets that same FBI agent in a Chicago hotel because a Senator’s call girl has been murdered and Cameron saw the murderer leave the woman’s room from the door peephole in her own room which was right next door. As fate would have it, Jack and his partner are assigned to the case and are assigned to protect her when there’s a leak about her being an eye witness. Then she’s attacked and Jack is forced to move in with Cameron and believe me, things really heat up.

Julie James writing style, sense of humor, and passion made this romance-suspense one I will long remember. Her characters from Cameron’s college friends, her best friend’s bachelorette party and wedding, to the undercover Chicago cops and Jack’s FBI partner watching over her made Something Like You a most entertaining love story. It’s simply a fun, sexy read, with a lot of spice, danger, tenderness, and was a sincere pleasure to read.

Julie James will be added to my auto-buy list. Her style of writing, her sense of humor and her romantic side just perfect ingredients for a contemporary romance!

Book Description:


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…


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…

Praise for Something About You
