SUNNY: BOOK REVIEW - "Something About You" by Julie James
SUMMARY From Goodreads:
Fate has thrown two sworn enemies...
Of all the hotel rooms rented by all the adulterous politicians in Chicago, female Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde had to choose the one next to 1308, where some hot-and-heavy lovemaking ends with a death. And of all the FBI agents in Illinois, it had to be Special Agent Jack Pallas who gets assigned to this high-profile homicide. The same Jack Pallas who still blames Cameron for a botched crackdown three years ago—and for nearly ruining his career.
Into each other's arms...
Work with Cameron Lynde? Are they kidding? Maybe, Jack thinks, this is some kind of welcome-back prank after his stint away from Chicago. But it's no joke; the pair is going to have to put their rocky past behind them and focus on the case at hand. That is, if they can cut back on the razor-sharp jibes—and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension
Julie James has a playful style of writing that had me smirking throughout the whole book. I loved the inner dialogue and references to pop culture.
Jack Pallas is my kind of hero. He is a reluctant romantic. He is dumbstruck by how quickly his attraction takes over. With his glowering looks and serious demeanor, he could easy intimidate even the staunchest of women...but not Cameron Lynde. She can and does go toe-to-toe with this alpha.
What I like most about this relationship between Cameron and Jack is that it does not take long for them to get brutally honest with each other. Yes! It saved me from the frustration of waiting and wondering...and then wait for it, wait for it, yes! He tumbles right over the precipice. So hot and satisfying.
IN A NUTSHELL:
A fun and fast read, this is the perfect weekend book when you want a little laughter peppered with some serious alpha goodness.
