About That Night by Julie James

He's Playing Games

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.

But She's Making The Rules

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.

If I ask you to show me a bad JJ book, you will fail, fail, fail. I have yet to be disappointed by her books and I don't see that ever happening. Each book I read just keeps getting better and better and better...

I kind of fell deeply in like with Kyle Rhodes in the previous book of this series. I'm one of his high-fivers, I guess. JJ always comes up with these awesome characters so I'm not that at all surprised that Kyle became this awesome person despite my biases when someone is tagged as an ex-con. But then as Rylann said, he did not murder anyone. It was just Twitter. Which made Kyle even more interesting. (And adorable! Sue me.) By the end of this book, I was in love.

This was just the right kind of book to pick me up from an almost-two week reading slump. This was in-your-face romance at its best. No misunderstandings between two people who like and love each other. Just them coming to terms with their past and present; and then for them to move on from there. I may have mentioned this before but I just want to repeat it: Second chance romances are a-okay in my book, okay? Love them.

In short, this is the kind of book that, had I not been aware that it was part of a series, would make go scrambling for the rest of the books from the entire series...and for any more JJ reads I can find. It's that kind of feel-good, mushy awesome.

Final verdict: 10/10. Great, must-read. GET IT!!!

That first sentence,'s completely right. There isn't a person in the world that could show me a bad Julie James book. She writes the very best kind of romances IMO. Always good. And this one was a fantastic book as well. Love!
