Jordan Rhodes is invited to all of Chicago's best parties, but
there's only one the FBI wants to crash. To get her brother out
of jail, she agrees to take Agent McCall as her date. But when the
mission gets botched, requiring their "relationship" to
continue, it starts to feel less like an investigation-and a lot
like something else.

Jordan Rhodes agree to help the FBI in exchange for releasing her brother form prison. What should of been a one day OP turns into something much more complicated.
This is a great, fast-paced read. Once I started, I didn't stop until I was finished. The best parts were the quips between Jordan and Nick. Even the wine talk and its terminologies were enjoyable - I had no idea you could read certain connotations into it.
"...You give yourself over to the rush, the smooth, silky feeling of the wine, its flavours, its scent, and you taste again. And again. Until you feel that flush begin to build, that warm, tingly euphoric feeling that goes on and on, even after the last drop is gone, before you slowly float down on a cloud of bliss."
Another book that I kept thinking about while reading it was "Pride and Prejudice". Like it, this book is centered around two main characters who both have an unwanted attraction and certain prejudices towards each other. Nick sees his job as a hindrance for any long-term relationship and doesn't fit into her lifestyle. Jordan thinks he's arrogant and that he annoys her most of the time.
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that an FBI special agent in possession of great skill and talent is likely to engage in trash talk every now and then."
Julie James' books are categorized as romance, but this like "Something About You" is more romantic suspense with steam. I enjoy each book more than the last and can't wait for her next one.
