I couldn’t resist– the first official review for Something About You is in. (I’ve heard good things informally, but this is the first actual review I’ve seen.) It put a smile on my face, and I thought I’d share. So here it is, from Coffee Time Romance:
Rating: 5 Cups
Three years ago, assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde was all set to try a vile man for some horrendous crimes. Then her boss shut her down, informing her that there would be no trial and she would have to take the fallout.
Jack Pallas is a FBI agent who was undercover investigating the same criminal that Cameron was supposed to be prosecuting. When she effectively closed the doors on the case, Jack mouthed off to the press and was immediately transferred.
Cameron is trying to relax in a hotel when she finds herself embroiled in a murder investigation. Jack just happens to be back and also happens to be the agent on the case. They will have to put their differences aside and work together, especially when Cameron finds herself the target of a murderer. When feelings of loathing turns to lust, both try their hardest to stay professional, but with one too many heat-filled looks, Cameron and Jack turn a professional relationship into something much more personal.
From the first page until the last, Julie James knows how to keep a reader entertained with her amusing repartees and hilarious, argumentative characters. Something About You pits a stubborn woman against a man who has had to fight for his very life many times over. Add a sexual tension thick enough to ooze off the page, a man determined to kill anyone in his way, and a murder investigation involving the social elite, and this makes for a winning novel. You could not ask for a better book to read and this author never fails to impress me.
Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance & More
“Sexual tension thick enough to ooze off the page”. . . they should put that on the front cover of the book. 😉
On another note, Practice Makes Perfect was nominated for a 2009 CAPA award! And they sent me this nice graphic to display:
Many thanks to The Romance Studio for that– I’m thrilled! You can see all the nominees here.
Until next time. . . happy reading!
