Jordan Rhodes is invited to all of Chicago's best parties, but there's only one the FBI wants to crash. To get her brother out of jail, she agrees to take Agent McCall as her date. But when the mission gets botched, requiring their "relationship" to continue, it starts to feel less like an investigation-and a lot like something else.

"A smart, sexy read." (Nalini Singh)
I really enjoyed the storyline and the characters - although this was wasn't quite as suspenseful as the first one in this series - I still really enjoyed it very much.
The characters and also I enjoyed learning a bit more about wine industry.
She does a really great job of bringing these characters alive.
Yes and I did just that!
Hope that you get the rest of the series on here!
Good character development.
The narrator is great for female voices, but she's quite bad at male voices. She makes them all sound like a pompous John Wayne, and initially I had to focus on enjoyment of the story to get through it. And remember that I had purchased the series, so it's likely that I'll be just as annoyed w/ the remaining two books.
A Lot Like Love has a great premise. FBI enlists the help of a billionaires daughter to cause a diversion so the FBI can bug a local business owner believed to be laundering money. In return, they will get her brother out of prison, where he is serving a sentence for hacking into Twitter.
I liked the story and the characters were well drawn, but the narrator did not do justice to the male lead.
I think I would recommend reading this as opposed to listening or, as I did, get the whisper-sync version so you can give the characters the voices you like.
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
STORY (romance) - A Lot Like Love is another fun romp in this great romance series. I listened out of order (due to sales), so this is my third book. I've loved them all, but About That Night (#3) is my favorite. You don't have to listen to them in order, but I would recommend it if you can. The characters are related either by profession or family so their development continues from book to book, though each book is actually one romance and can stand on its own. This series has it all -- smart characters, clever dialogue, steamy sex and interesting background stories involving big-time FBI investigations. You can't go wrong here.
PERFORMANCE - Nice job. I've heard a few female narrators who perform more masculine male voices, but she does a pretty good job.
OVERALL - If you like hot contemporary romances, start with Book 1 of this series.
I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.
Yes I would. Unlike the first book this one takes you primarily from the male's perspective. It is a different take on love. When it comes to these two communication seems to be key but neither one seems to know how to do it well.
When Nick sits Jordan down in the back of the cop car and tells her that she screwed up his live and that he is in love with her. Probably one of the most heartfelt moments in the entire book.
Jordan's brother Kyle. To me he seems like the type of guy a girl would be luck to get.
When Nick brought Kyle clothes after he got out of jail. He may be interested in Jordan but he still remembered her brother and the things he may need.
Julia Garwood, but funnier.
I like the pace and the emotion she brings to the characters.
Yes. I would fall asleep listening to it then wake up and start listening to it again.
This series was so great. I finished it and now I feel like I have lost a friend
Audible Addict. My iPod is my security blanket.
Yes, I would. I really enjoyed the series.
Nick, of course. Julie James makes her male characters desirable.
I didn't have favorite character in particular that Karen performed. She performed all characters perfectly. Karen White really brought the book to life, Loved her!
I love when the lead characters first meet.
Great, fun series!
I preferred this to the first book in the series. I adored this one. Though I am a little over the wine lover background...
Funny and sexy! Karen White is fantastic! I love the Julie James/Karen White combo!!
Basically the story was good but the reader was so awful I almost stopped listening a number of times. Her interpretation of Nick was so bad it was hard to tolerate him, never mind see him as a romantic figure. He sounded like a stupid thug. When I took the reader's voice out of a conversation, I tried to "hear" Nick a different way that could at least give me a chance to imagine Jordan falling for him. I would totally recommend getting a new reader and offering the book again.
