She's an heiress, he's a top notch lawyer. She helps in a sting operation thinking her man is a total jerk when suddenly things change. Ah love!! His brains and some gorgeous muscle mass makes her change her mind about him. Her wit and gorgeous legs seal the deal for him. Love Julie James stories. Wish there were more!!
The way Cole n Brook r wit each other.
When they finally realized they were both in luv wit the other.
Sound to the voices. She did a really great job.
This is a great funny romance book. A few sex part not overloaded. But the way the 2 main characters act wit each other. I luv the whole series.
Julie James' fourth installment in the FBI-US Attorney Series does not fail. I absolutely LOVED this book. It's full of witty one-liners, and funny conversations. Like the previous three books, the storyline not only builds on what's going on in the characters life then, but also on their memories of important, life-changing events of the past. Unlike books 1 & 2, there is no crazy scenario where any of the characters are in immediate danger. Instead, the suspense relies mostly on what's going on Cade and Brooke's personal lives. As usual, both the male and female protagonists are intelligent and successful. Brooke is striving for balance in her personal life while Cade is essentially trying to find balance in his personal life.
Note: Although this is a series, it doesn't really build on the previous installments. Previous characters only make cameo appearances & their stories are barely a part of this one. Still, if you enjoy this book I highly recommend going back and buying the previous books. You won't be disappointed.
A strong and determined female lead. A tough US attorney. A simple story. Nothing to say WOW about. But it was enjoyable. IF and that’s a big if, you like the series. Then you will enjoy this next installment.
Better than most
You get a real feeling for the character, you like or hate them. When reading you are not
as engaged in the individual people.
This series is great, in that the plots are all different but still similar in theme. Interesting
people with interesting problems. Great listen.
when describing this book.
It’s above average, but I’m having trouble saying I really liked it which is my definition of 4 stars. A lot of fun casual bantering. I smiled often. A gentle way to pass the time if you’re in the mood for contemporary romance. Young singles very successful at their jobs. They have good friends who are supportive. The subjects range from problems with family members, working too much, not enough time to date, and needing more balance in their lives. Cade and Brooke haven’t found anyone special enough to want to have more balance, until they meet each other. It’s not a suspenseful read, but it’s pleasant.
I would have liked more stress, suspense, or conflict either between them or within their jobs, like trying to catch a bad guy, or trying to uncover something bad at work. There was a little of that, but not enough.
There are four sex scenes. Not super hot, but nice.
The narrator Karen White does a fine job. Not off the charts, but nice.
Genre: contemporary romance
This book was decently enjoyable, but I never felt anything for the characters. The romance was very ho hum. It was rushed at the end to the point where I didn't believe their love. This is definitely the weakest of Julie James' books in my opinion. The narrator was okay. She pauses a lot which makes the read sound robotic at times. She did get better as the story went along.
Where is the suspense? Each book in this series gets less. Like the characters but miss the suspense of the first two in the series.
Yes, I really like the wit she writes with. Find myself laughing out loud
