The FBI wants her cooperation
As the daughter of a billionaire and the owner of the city s top wine store, Jordan Rhodes is invited to the most exclusive parties in Chicago. But there s only one party the FBI wants to crash: the charity fund-raiser of a famous restaurateur, who also happens to launder money for the mob. In exchange for her brother s release from prison, Jordan is going to be there with a date supplied by the Bureau.
Agent McCall just wants her
As the top undercover agent in Chicago, Nick McCall has one rule: never get personal. This date with Jordan Rhodes is merely an assignment one they re both determined to pull off even if they can t be together for five minutes before the sarcasm and sparks begin to fly. But when Nick’s investigation is compromised, he and Jordan have no choice but to pretend they’re a couple, and what starts out as a simple assignment begins to feel a lot like something more.

Another sharp and sassy romance
This is another winner from Julie James and it is chock full of her trademark wit, humour and smart and sharp banter. It stands completely alone but we did get little cameo appearances from Cameron and Jack from her previous book, Something about You.
My favourite thing about Julie James‘ writing is always the way that her main characters spark off each other. Despite this being a constant in her books the plot and characters are always so fresh and new and a joy to read from start to finish.
Jordan was a great character – strong and confident yet still likeable and relatable. But it was Nick who stole the show and my heart. I just love brooding, dark and mysterious men who fall hook, line and sinker for the girl of their dreams. Nick and Jordan together had great chemistry and some sexy scenes that greatly complemented the story.
The more I read of Julie James the more I love her writing style and her stories. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking out for a sexy, sassy romantic story. 5 stars.
