Something About You by Julie James

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.

I don't know if it was something in the water or if it had something to do with my currently not-fully-up-to-speed-brain-after-two-weeks-of-doctor-advised-rest. Obviously though, this was my second successive enemies-turned-to-lovers book.

This is a JJ so I expected nothing less than to be entertained well. And of course, I was. There's some sort of flair...okay, many sorts of flair...that JJ has with her books that just leaves me all giddy and good inside. She always puts out flawless storytelling and some unforgettable characters that makes it hard when a book ends. 

This was no different. I loved Jack and Cameron. I loved how they just couldn't help not hating each other despite their ugly history. I loved the secondary characters--talk about hilarious. Wilkins will get a story in this series, right? Say yes, say yes, say yes! Mix in with the right murder intrigue and you have yourself a perfect evening read.

What else more can I say? JJ has yet to disappoint me. Although I don't see that happening. Ever.

Final verict: 8/10. Great read.
