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.

    "I like the premise"

    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.

    Story
    "I love this series!"

    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.

    "Very enjoyable story."
    If you could sum up A Lot Like Love in three words, what would they be?

    Good character development.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    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.

    "Sweet but drawn out"

    The chemistry was hit or miss, but the realization of love was realistic. Too much background and narrative that wasn't about the characters' relations. Would've appreciated more passion faster in the story. Loved the narrator!

    Story
    "Another good book Julie"
    Would you listen to A Lot Like Love again? Why?

    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.


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

    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.


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

    Jordan's brother Kyle. To me he seems like the type of guy a girl would be luck to get.


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

    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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Fast-paced enjoyable crime-investigating-romance"

    I tore through this one at an incredible pace, especially considering that whole work day thing and a few hours of dance classes which happened to interrupt my reading...

    I loved the leading couple. They each had strong character, and I caught myself laughing aloud in public at their quips and sarcasm. I was a bit on edge the whole time, just waiting for something to go wrong with the investigation, waiting for a shoe to drop... and even felt as if I had predicted how it would... so when it seemed it did I was waiting for the other - and having read some more intense crime books than this I was seriously worried about any potential climactic showdown with bad guys. Without giving spoilers, I was spared the intensity, and the level of the suspense and danger in the climactic scene matched pretty well with the tone of the book (and not as perilous as what Jack and Cameron faced previously, or so it seemed to me).

    Anyway, it was fun, to watch them go from antagonistic to fake dating, to a whirlwind romantic weekend. My only issue was that I didn't particularly like the dialogue when they, er, became intimate. I lack appreciation for dirty talk in real life too, but I have not always minded it in fiction... just something about the style here rubbed me the wrong way. *shrugs*

    Supporting characters were great too, loved the family members and friends.
    Narration was good, fit the tone of the story well, and usually captured their emotions perfectly. The male voices were a bit unsatisfying and indistinguishable. Also had a bit of trouble telling when thoughts were internal or spoken aloud when interspersed with the dialogue, but it was usually denoted afterwards when it was only said in her head.

    Very witty and sexy. Fast-paced enjoyable crime-investigating-romance.

    "Much Better Installment"

    Skipping the first book would not have hurt this story - much. I really enjoyed this book much more. The only thing that bothered me was Nick's too strong and poorly done Brooklyn accent. Narrator's fault. Though she did do male/female voice differences.

    Again there were several laugh out loud moments. Another light listen, but a much better/believable story.

    "Returned it"

    Narration May have contributed to bad opinion. Boring story. Had high hopes based on description.
