Review: A Lot Like Love by Julie James

Review: A Lot Like Love by Julie James

Nick McCall is an FBI Special Agent who has spent the last six years working undercover. The Roberto Martino case has led to another potential suspect who has laundered money for Martino’s organization. Jordan Rhodes owns a wine business, is the daughter of a billionaire and the twin of man who is now in prison for computer hacking. She’s been invited to the suspect’s gala event and is the FBI’s ticket to gaining entry to his establishment to place listening devices. I really enjoyed this story, primarily because of the characters. Nick is given more dimension through his interactions with his family, providing another perspective of the hard-edged G-man. Jordan is interesting, witty and self-confident without being arrogant. She’s quick and the dialogue with Nick […]

Even though Finding Magic is a prequel in the Downside Ghosts series, I think that existing fans of the series will get more enjoyment out of it than someone that is new to the series. The reason is that we get to see a younger Chess and how she starts her downward slid into drug addiction and it gives you more insite into how she could have let it happen. The younger Chess is really just a slightly different version of the Chess we all know. Instead of her reaching for her pill box when her past memories get the best of her, she is reaching for a flask filled with vodka. We follow Chess through her first unofficial Church case while she is training […]

  First, Johanna Lindsey is one of my favorite authors. Second, this book is on my top 10 list. Raids, Vikings, a spit-fire heroine, a rough and tumble hero, passion, betrayal and more! Fires of Winter will hold your imagination captive from the start and take you on an adventure in Viking terrain. Lady Brenna is beautiful and strong, she faced the Vikings in battle when they came to her family’s home. However, she was captured and taken as a slave back to Norway. She is not a wilting flower by any means. In fact, one fault you could assign her would be too much pride, but it works in this romance. Garrick Haardrad is a hard warrior. As a second son, he is forced to […]
