The Thing About Love

I’m sure I’ve mentioned my love of rereading books at least a dozen times in reviews. It’s how I weed out good and great books from DIK, I-must-own-it-NOW books. Desert Isle Keeper status is reserved for novels which I’m eager to reread immediately. By the time I finished The Thing About Lov ...

Love Irresistibly

Note to self: When a book sounds good, ignore the advice of friends. Before I began reading this several friends told me it was a big disappointment and found it mediocre at best. This not only made me nervous, I avoided reading it for months. I just wasn’t in the mood for mediocre. That’ll teac ...

Practice Makes Perfect

Narrated by Karen White While I’ve read a number of Julie James’ books in print, this is the first I’ve listened to, and also the first time I’ve read this 2009 release. I liked the story a little more than Ellen who gave it a B at AAR, but truly enjoyed Karen White’s narration. I intende ...

Love Irresistibly

Narrated by Karen White As the Assistant US Attorney in charge of prosecuting Twitter terrorist Kyle Rhodes, (hero of About That Night), Cade Morgan could have been a somewhat unsympathetic hero. But, Ms. James cleverly redeemed Cade by the end of the previous book, paving the way for readers to ge ...

About That Night

Narrated by Karen White I was about halfway through About That Night when I realized the suspense was not the main focus of the book and the entire storyline started making a lot more sense. Unlike other entries in the FBI/US Attorney series that carry a feel of romantic suspense (although all are ...

A Lot Like Love

"Tall, dark, and smoldering" hero, check. Gorgeous, smart, witty heroine, check. Appealing secondary characters, check. Entertaining, amusing dialogue, check. Enthralling plot, check. Exceptional writing, delightful book, check and check. Jordan Rhodes and her twin brother Kyle are not rich, even ...

Something About You

I tend to be skeptical about online buzz, and I’ve seen a lot for Julie James’ romances. Well, I get it now. Something About You is a fun contemporary romance filled with witty, well-developed characters, and it is a book I heartily recommend. Things start out with a bang, when h ...

Practice Makes Perfect

I’m generally not a big fan of books with legal backgrounds (sorry Mr. Grisham), but Practice Makes Perfect was a very enjoyable read. If Julie James keeps on writing in this vein, I may have to change my mind about the law. Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson are both associates in ...
