Love Irresistibly by Julie James


A former football star and one of Chicago’s top prosecutors, Assistant U.S. Attorney Cade Morgan will do anything to nail a corrupt state senator, which means he needs Brooke Parker’s help. As general counsel for a restaurant company, she can get a bug to the senator’s table at one of her five-star restaurants so the FBI can eavesdrop on him. All Cade has to do is convince Brooke to cooperate—and he’s not afraid to use a little charm, or the power of his office, to do just that.


A savvy businesswoman, Brooke knows she needs to play ball with the U.S. Attorney’s office—even if it means working with Cade. No doubt there’s a sizzling attraction beneath all their sarcastic quips, but Brooke is determined to keep things casual. Cade agrees—until a surprising turn of events throws his life into turmoil, and he realizes that he wants more than just a good time from the one woman with whom he could fall terrifyingly, irresistibly in love...

This is another irresistibly good read from JJ. I mean, is there any other kind that she writes? Because I really enjoyed this book from start to finish, just like her usual.

I did this book for a challenge on reading something funny. Although this may not be LOL fare, it did put several smiles on my face (and some giggles here and there) with the witty dialogue and some very well written characters. It was actually very nice to revisit with the characters from the previous books in the series but at the same time, I really enjoyed the subplots here. I didn't expect it because I really thought that I had an idea who Cade was in the previous book.

And I really thought that Cade and Brooke were two of the sexiest characters I've read in a while. A former jock who became a hotshot lawyer is sexy, sexy, sexy! (Just in case you needed some convincing.) And who better to be the perfect woman for him than someone who was also amazeballs at her job. Not only that, she had enough confidence to know what she could continue to be brilliant at her job despite having to delegate so that she could actually enjoy the life that she had made for herself.

And did I mention that Cade had a sexy teenager half-brother, too? I would really, really like to know what his story would be like down the roade. You would, too, when you get to finish this book.

Final verdict: 9/10. Great read,
