People can say what they will about Jordan Rhodes, the daughter to billionaire Grey Rhodes. Her family has been the topic of media scrutiny and public fascination for years due to her father’s profitable business ventures. 

 

Jordan has gotten to where she is today all on her own merits - owning one of Chicago’s top wine stores. When her brother Kyle is sentenced to prison and is tormented by other inmates, she’ll do anything to see him set free.

 

Nick McCall is a top undercover agent and his next assignment will thrust him out of his “average Joe” comfort zone and into the posh lifestyle of the rich and noteworthy.

 

The FBI has been trying to nail down suspected money launderer (and wine connoisseur) Xander Eckhart. They agree to release Jordan’s brother if she’ll cooperate in an operation to gather evidence against Xander.

 

Nick and Jordan must pretend to be a couple. Although they have their preconceived notions about each other, they soon begin acting like the real thing.

 

“A Lot Like Love” is filled with intrigue, excitement and is wickedly sexy. Author Julie James scores big with this immensely entertaining and thoroughly satisfying read. The wine references that pepper many scenes don’t overwhelm the reader but make them want to sit down in Napa Valley and sample a Vineyard 29 estate cabernet.

 

The main characters have an unequivocal chemistry that readers can’t help falling for. The secondary characters were also quite stellar, especially Jordan’s brother Kyle. This book is filled with the kind of action, drama, comedy, and passion that no romance lover can resist.
