About That Night– (FBI-Attorney #3) Julie James


Though Rylann Pierce tried to fight the sparks she felt for billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes the night they met, their sizzling chemistry was undeniable. But after being stood up on their first date, Rylann never expected to see him again. So when she finds herself face to face with Kyle in a courthouse nine years later, she’s stunned. More troubling to the beautiful Assistant U.S. Attorney is that she’s still wildly attracted to him.


Just released from prison, Kyle Rhodes isn’t thrilled to be the star witness in a high-profile criminal case — but when Rylann comes knocking at his door, he finds she may be the one lawyer he can’t say no to. Still as gorgeous and sharp-tongued as ever, she lays down the law: she doesn’t mix business with pleasure. But Kyle won’t give up on something he wants — and what he wants is the one woman he’s never forgotten...

Sam's Review:

First things first – I love Julie James. She must be one of the only authors that never let unnecessary miscommunications get into the romance. There is never the ‘Impending doom’ feeling that is almost always felt within a novel and it’s just so gosh darn nice.
Rylann Pierce aka Prosecutric Pierce and Kyle Rhondes aka Dimples, shared one very special kiss some nine years ago. After Kyle walked Rylann home, sparks flew and with a promise of a date the following eve, fireworks were in the air.
But when Kyle fails to show the next night, Rylann decides that this billionaire heir isn’t worth her time or fit into her quite ridiculous 6 year plan of become a Assistant US Attorney.
Nine years later and the two come face to face again in the court room. Kyle has become the world renowned ‘Twitter Terrorist’ and has just been released from Jail. Instantly the attraction is felt and everything from that night nine years ago comes rushing back.
We get to read about Kyle in past books and you almost get the impression of a spoilt rich kid who simply hacked into twitter because his girl cheated on him. I was clearly mistaken. This man takes responsibility for his own life and what he going to make of it now he is out of the slammer. He dealt with the consequences of his ‘terrorism’ and manned up.  Oh and did I mention he is a Sawyer look a like (LOST) – smug dimples, big blue eyes, shampoo commercial hair –PERFECT – and wow! Didn’t see the sexy dirty talk coming at me either, but it’s there people and its scrummy.
Rylann was a nice Heroine. She didn’t take his shit and met him head on. She was so determined in her career and new exactly how many steps it was going to take to reach it.  It was slightly annoying that it took longer than I would have liked to make her realise that she needed to pop Kyle into her 12 year plans, but finally when the woman did get the sense knocked into her – the book was set on fire.
This book was well rounded and had everything I loved in a book. These light hearted contemporary romances always go down a treat and with an author like Julie James doing the writing I know I can never go wrong.
We see allot of past characters and get little snippets of them all.  I can’t wait to see who our sexy lead roles will be for the next books.
