Something About You by Julie James

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.

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.

Something about you – After reading Julie James first book – Just the Sexiest Man Alive – I immediately fell in love with her style of writing and dove head first into her next book on my list – Something about you. And once again you, Ms James have proved again tenfold how wonderfully emotional your writing can be.

Admittedly the book did start slow; it wasn’t until about half way through that I really felt there was progress. But looking back onto that now I think that that time was needed to lay the foundations for the last half of the book. Because once we hit the last half of the book it hurtled us thru it with no stopping or turning back.

And I’ll tell you! There definitely WAS something about Agent Jack Pallas – he was HAWT! He was a sexy dark brooding Alpha male – who took charge and oh...you’ll just have to experience him for yourself because nothing I say will do this man justice.

Cameron is an Assistant US Attorney, who is very career orientated. I like Cameron a lot! She didn’t fight or deny that her life was in danger or not accept the help given to her – where usually most heroine’s act like dumbasses and want to do things their own way. Both characters keep true to their selves and their friends throughout the entire book.

This book killed me, it just killed me. The suspense with these two was palpable! Oh so often they were just about there – a kiss, a touch, a caress, a button away from falling into bed when it would be just ripped away from me. But, FINALLY we graduated to a sex scene! And it was done perfectly. It wasn’t hard core erotica or anything nasty or kinky, but it was sweet, steamy and very intense, it was just ... right.

Something About You is a beautiful love story with interesting plots, perfectly written characters, humour, and of course a HEA that we are all searching for.

Kudos to Julie James!
