Publisher's Summary

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.

    "OMG! I'm still basking in the afterglow ..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A LOT LIKE LOVE by Julie James and read by Karen White is an exceptionally fabulous romantic suspense listen. The combo of Julie James and Karen White is nothing short of pure perfection! Many, many thanks to the posters on a Goodreads romantic audio group for recommending that I check out the Julie James/Karen White offerings! You were all right on and have earned my undying appreciation! So... as they recommended this series to me, I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys fun contemporary romances generously spiced with suspense!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Lot Like Love?

    When Nick professed his love to Jordan in the back seat of a car. Here's a snippet from that scene that still makes me tear up:

    “One more second and he would’ve hit you with the gun. And who knows what else. When I think about what could’ve happened . . .” He gripped her shoulders determinedly. “I should’ve told you this earlier, Jordan. Now that I’ve got my chance, you’re going to hear it whether you like it or not. You came into my life and messed the whole thing up and now I’m screwed. Because I’m in love with you. As in balls-out, head-over-heels, watching-Dancing-with-the-Stars -on-Monday-nights, wine-and-bubble-bath kind of love. Hell, I think I’d even wear a scarf indoors for you.”


    Have you listened to any of Karen White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Karen is hands-down one of my favorite narrators! I have discovered many new authors thanks to her as I will pick up anything that I see that she's narrated. Simply put, if you have not listened to one of her productions, you are missing out. Every word, every pause, every inflection, i.e, the whole package comprises a polished, precise, and engaging listen. I know I’m fan-girling, but Karen’s works deserve it as they are all pure vocal magic. Pick one up and check her out!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It did! I laughed, I cried. I was on the edge of my seat! This whole series is riveting, witty and sexy crime-investigating romance! Each one has left me fan-girling.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though A LOT LIKE LOVE is the second installment in the author’s fantastic FBI/US Attorney series, it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone if that is your preference. However, if you enjoy fun contemporary romances generously spiced with suspense, start with the first book and exponentially increase your pleasure!

    A LOT LIKE LOVE is the story of the ‘ubiquitous tall, dark, and smoldering’ undercover agent Nick McCall and heiress Jordan Rhodes, a wine connoisseur extraordinaire. As the story begins, we are there as the FBI solicits the assistance of Jordan, a billionaire’s daughter, to cause a diversion, so the FBI can then bug a local business owner believed to be laundering money while he’s not paying attention. In return, they will get her brother out of prison, where he is serving a sentence for pulling off the largest hack in Twitter’s history. Sound interesting? After all, what could possibly go wrong? Hang on tight as this is a wild dangerous romp! As a fringe benefit to this mesmerizing tale, it doubles as a genuinely interesting educational primer on wine and the wine industry.

    Who will be the next to fall in love in this riveting, witty and sexy crime-investigating romance series? I can’t wait to find out who it will be! The next installment, ABOUT THAT NIGHT, is already cued on my phone. Meanwhile, I'm still basking in the afterglow left by A LOT LIKE LOVE.

    "Horrible"

    I should have listened to other reviewers complaints on the narrator- it's unbearable. Couldn't get past the first 2 chapters- need to return this.

    "Story line light and fun but reader awful."

    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.

    "Typical romance."

    Good although not as good as the first book, the danger from the first book was missing. As a romance though it is a good story and I liked the characters even if the whole wine thing was a little much for me. I was kinda hoping we would see more of Nick's mother. I think the author could have had a lot of humorous moments with her. Although this book is part of a series you can easily read it as a stand alone book. I do get tired of books were everybody has money, this book is no exception although not as obnoxious as others I have read. Narrator does mostly a good job, but she doesn't always do the accents for the characters.

    "Great new series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I will recommend this book and others by Julie James. She writes sound stories with a smart funny hand.


    Have you listened to any of Karen White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All Karen White 's performances are just ok. She seems to do better if I enjoy the book, oddly enough.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Nick realizes he loves Jordan, or when he calls his mother about her...actually there are too many and all different points pop in my head. So pretty much the whole book.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second book in the series and I listened to this one first and immediately purchased the first one. I cannot wait to buy the third, even though the reviews are iffy I'm still going to purchase.

    Any additional comments?

    It was a fun read. The male character could have been a bit more multi-dimensional but overall it still worked. The first book was a tad better. Will still try the next one in the series.

    "Great read.."
    Any additional comments?

    This is the second book of the series and I think I liked it a little better than the first, although I did love both of them. I liked Nick and Jordan, a lot. Really liked Huxley. Loved the storyline and really liked that there was just enough sex to make it interesting. Love how the author can write a drama and have some good laugh-out-loud moments.

    As to the narrator: With the other book she did a wonderful job. However, it took me a while to use to Nick's voice because she gave him a terrible Brooklyn accent and it just didn't sound right. But I did get used to it and, eventually, it was just OK. I hope she doesn't do that again in any of the other books.

    On to book 3 now!! (Which I've already started but didn't get that far since I started it at 2:30 this morning, right after I finished A lot Like Love.)

    "Narration a big issue"

    Another great Julie James book - well-written with interesting characters. I found the narration annoying and almost considered stopping several times to move to print. Spotty accents, the enunciation makes the characters all sound bored or snobby beyond belief.

    "Good Read, Good Narration"

    A Lot Like Love, book 2 in the FBI-US Attorney Series, is a lot of fun! Like book 1, you won't want to put this one down. I thought it wasn't as high tempo as book 1; it didn't have as many action-packed scenes. But the love story was more in depth...more interesting. If you haven't read book 1, don't worry. So far, this isn't the type of series that builds on previous stories. The previous characters only make cameo appearances. One of the things I loved about this book was Nick's perspective. He continually thinks about what he would do or think if he was "one of those sensitive types" without acknowledging that he actually is. And let's face it, what girl doesn't like a tough guy with a sensitive side?

    I also love that in books 1 & 2, James has written about intelligent, successful women who waited to meet the right person. Jordan is not one of the silly, overly emotional women romance writers often create. She's a woman you can actually root for and identify with.

    Karen White did a great job as narrator. I especially enjoyed her delivery of the more sarcastic/funny lines. And her depiction of Nick was spot-on.

    P.S. The dynamic between Jordan and her twin brother Kyle was both funny and endearing.
