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.

    "Don't miss this one!!!! EXCELLENT!"

    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!!

    "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.

    "Another great story!"

    I stumbled on this author by accident & I am very pleased I did. Now on to the next of Julie James' books.

    "Returned it"

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

    Story
    "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: <br/><br/>“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.”<br/>


    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! <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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.<br/>

    "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
    "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.

    Story
    "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.
