Love Irresistibly: FBI-US Attorney Series, Book 4

A former football star and one of Chicago's top prosecutors, Assistant U.S. Attorney Cade Morgan will do anything to nail a corrupt state senator, which means he needs Brooke Parker's help. As general counsel for a restaurant company, she can get a bug to the senator's table at one of her five-star restaurants so the FBI can eavesdrop on him. All Cade has to do is convince Brooke to cooperate-and he's not afraid to use a little charm, or the power of his office, to do just that.

Publisher's Summary

A former football star and one of Chicago's top prosecutors, Assistant U.S. Attorney Cade Morgan will do anything to nail a corrupt state senator, which means he needs Brooke Parker's help. As general counsel for a restaurant company, she can get a bug to the senator's table at one of her five-star restaurants so the FBI can eavesdrop on him. All Cade has to do is convince Brooke to cooperate-and he's not afraid to use a little charm, or the power of his office, to do just that.

A savvy businesswoman, Brooke knows she needs to play ball with the U.S. Attorney's office-even if it means working with Cade. No doubt there's a sizzling attraction beneath all their sarcastic quips, but Brooke is determined to keep things casual. Cade agrees - until a surprising turn of events throws his life into turmoil, and he realizes that he wants more than just a good time from the one woman with whom he could fall terrifyingly, irresistibly in love.

    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!

    "My Favorite Romance Series Continues to Deliver"

    STORY (contemporary romance) - Love Irresistibly continues with all the things I like about this series. The main characters are intelligent and successful, there is an interesting plot going on besides just the romance and there is lots of sassy dialogue! In this book, Cade is a successful US Attorney and Brooke is the corporate attorney for an elite restaurant chain. They are thrown together as part of a criminal investigation Cade is working on, and the clever banter and sarcasm begins...until they start realizing they might actually like each other. There is also a pretty good sub-plot involving Cade's new-found brother, Zack, which Cade didn't realize existed.

    There is sex in this book and it's fairly explicit, but it is only a few scenes and they're relatively short. Personally, that's how I like my romance novels -- hot but not a lot!

    PERFORMANCE - As always, I enjory Karen White's narrations. Not only does she do a good job, but her natural voice lends itself equally to portraying male and female characters well. No wimpy, nasally Romeo here!

    OVERALL - This romance stands alone, though there are "updates" on characters from previous books (like Cameron from Book 1 is now pregnant, etc). If you think you might be interested in all the characters in the series, you need to start with Book 1. There is explicit sex as mentioned above, and there are a few F-words in sexual situations. Nice, easy listen with no violence. Highly recommended for any female who enjoys contemporary romance stories!

    Story
    "OK Book -"
    What did you like best about Love Irresistibly? What did you like least?

    The witty banter in the book is well written and well performed. What I didn't like is the fact that the premise of this series is characters associated with the FBI and the US Attorneys office. The first in the series used the premise well for an excellent Romantic-Suspense. The following 3 editions of this series are pretty much straight contemporary romance with very little, if any, suspense/mystery/action in the plot. A bit boring for my taste.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Julie James? Why or why not?

    Not sure - she started out strong with a really good romantic suspense - but then it pretty much became straight romance. Several hours of angst and why we can't be together is a drag to me - very predictable storyline and ending.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Karen White?

    Yes - she is very good.


    Was Love Irresistibly worth the listening time?

    Mixed feelings on that. I can't say it isn't well written and narrated - just a bit boring. I think I am done with the series as it has become what does not interest me - straight contemporary romance.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this author when she added action/suspense in the mix. I'll be looking to see if she does anything like that again in the future.

    "Must Love Wit and Good Humor"
    Would you listen to Love Irresistibly again? Why?

    Frankly, I just started this pre ordered book due to Jordan's story. What great lines. If you are doing anything that requires concentration while listening to this book, you will miss the humor. I have replayed the first 3 chapters as I would miss a good line and have to go back. I am laughing my head off.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    too soon to tell, but so far, everyone introduced has a great fun line or lines.


    Which character – as performed by Karen White – was your favorite?

    Ms White has certainly gotten better with this series. I thought Jordan's brother would be the best story, but I could not get into the swing of it. Listening to Jordan story was fun!! Now this story, and Ms White has got a winner here so far.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoy these stories and laugh your head off.

    "Cade Morgan is too hot to handle!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the author's more intricate stories surrounding the Assistant US attorney and a legal counsel. They meet during an investigation when Cade seeks Brooke's help. Sparks fly instantly and burn the characters defenses as the story unfolds. There is the side story of Cade's father and his abandonment issues that show up in a few places but without making the story heavy. A great book for an quick, fun and easy read.

    "Ready For Next Installment"

    Great, entertaining and the performance was well done as well. My only issue is that I wish the author had mentioned the previous characters a little more. But it wasn't there story, so.... No matter, as I noted, I am ready for the next installment. When Ms James?

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    "Back On Track!"

    After the dismal previous book, I took a chance and got this one and have no regrets. Brooke Parker is the legal counsel for a restaurant company, and the US attorney needs her help. Being a smart business woman, Brooke agrees to play ball. The chemistry between her and Cade, the US attorney, is undeniable. Of course things don't go as they plan, the twists and turns adds to the fun.
    I enjoyed this one, definitely worth a credit.

    "His & Her Lawyers"

    Generally, I have enjoyed this series about attorneys and agents - not overtly violent yet suspenseful with engaging characters. Cade's FBI agent character was established in prior books but Brooke, a corporate lawyer was introduced in an interesting way - very clever!

    Love Irresistibly had drama, humor, romance, sex (explicit but not violent or degrading), friendship & families issues. I thought Brooke's friend Ford was a riot and proof that men & women can be close yet platonic friends.

    While I really admired the character Brooke, I was disappointed that a smart woman would not realize sooner the difference between having a successful career and allowing work to ruin her quality of life. What was the point of earning a huge salary if she was too busy to spend time with friends, family or a sexy guy?

    Cade was my idea of a real man, a public servant whose masculinity was not threatened by a strong, smart professional woman. He was supportive, caring, protective (but not dominating) and sexy - the whole package.
