This was a 5 star book for me. The dialouge between the H/H was laugh out loud funny in parts, both H/H were very likable, and the build up of the steam between them was delectable! The who done it aspect of the book was also unique, in that you know who did it pretty much near the beginning of the book, but are still interested in the resolution as the H & H fall in love. Loved it!
My Thoughts: We are introduced to Cameron Lynde who is an assistant US attorney. Even though she is an assistant attorney she is a sweet and caring person. When we think of people of attorneys we always think of tough hard women. Yes, Cameron is tough but she actually cares about people. Yes, she could outsmart you but she is a kind person. She gets herself stuck in a situation where she hears a murder take place. All she wanted to do was relax in a hotel room for one night. Of course that just can't happen for her. She than gets paired up with Jack Pallas. He has to watch over her while they try to catch the killer. Jack is your typical hero. He is gorgeous and I'd let him guard me anytime. Jack and Cameron have a history together, they worked on case 3 years ago and things didn't go so well. We also get introduced to Jack's partner and Cameron's friends which add a nice touch to the book. Is Cameron in trouble? Does Jack protect her? What happens between them? Does the fire ignite once again or do they just figure out who is the killer and move on with their lives separate from one another? Read this book now!
I absolutely love Julie James. I've read her previous books, Just The Sexist Man Alive and Practice Makes Perfect and I've given all 3 books 5 stars. I'll be honest, I don't really read many books focused on crimes, FBI agents, or lawyers. I watch enough of that on television so reading these kind of books just doesn't do it for me however Julie's books are brilliant. They also include a lot of romance and they are just awesome. Just The Sexist Man Alive was probably my favorite book but its hard to choose a favorite, because they are all wonderful. Julie James is a must buy for me. As soon as the book hits the shelve, I buy it and devour it in a few days.
Overall: Loved It! Loved Cameron and Jack. Loved the case. Loved The Whole Story and Characters.
Cover: The cover is gorgeous. I love the guys tux and I love her dress. Isn't it beautiful? All James covers are neat, they all cut off on half the face so we never really know what they look like but the clothes and colors are always neat.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde is treating herself to a weekend at a swanky hotel where she finds herself the sold witness to a murder. Her weekend gets even worse when the FBI gets involved and Special Agent Jack Pallas is assigned the case. Jack blames Cameron for almost ruining his career. Cameron can't stand him because of a derogatory remark he made about her to the press. These two may not like each other, but they are definitely striking sparks off of each other. Now they must work together to solve a high profile murder.
I've been hearing so much about this series, I finally decided to read the first book. I'm so glad I did. This book has so much going for it...wonderful characters, great plot, and witty dialogue. Finally, a heroine that is being guarded by the cops because her life is in danger, who doesn't do something stupid like take a stroll in the dark or say "I can take care of myself" when we know she can't. Cameron has brains!!! She knows someone wants her dead and she isn't about to endanger herself. Thank you, Julie James, for writing a smart heroine.
Jack and Cameron make a great couple. The sexual tension is sizzling. I really believed they loved each other by the end of the book. I loved the secondary characters in this story. Jack's partner and Cameron's friends are hilarious and made me laugh out loud. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. My rating: 5 Stars.
Overall pretty good. I liked Cameron and Jack (mostly). I liked the snippets with the killer as well; the reader finds out early on who it is. This might have ruined it, but added to the suspense. The one thing I really, really didn't like was Jack's thought that Cameron couldn't have a nice house without a rich husband (or rich ex-husband). I also thought Cameron forgave Jack a little too easily; some groveling would have been called for.
