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!
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.
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 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.
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!!
I will recommend this book and others by Julie James. She writes sound stories with a smart funny hand.
All Karen White 's performances are just ok. She seems to do better if I enjoy the book, oddly enough.
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.
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.
All business but contemporary fun!
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.
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.
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.)
