Title: A Lot Like Love
Series: FBI/US Attorney, #2
Author: Julie James
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars

The FBI wants her cooperation. As the daughter of a billionaire and the owner of the city's top wine store, Jordan Rhodes is invited to the most exclusive parties in Chicago. But there's only one party the FBI wants to crash: the charity fundraiser of a famous restaurateur, who also happens to launder money for the mob. In exchange for her brother's release from prison, Jordan is going to be there—with a date supplied by the Bureau.

 Agent McCall just wants her. As the top undercover agent in Chicago, Nick McCall has one rule: never get personal. This "date" with Jordan Rhodes is merely an assignment— one they're both determined to pull off even if they can't be together for five minutes before the sarcasm and sparks begin to fly. But when Nick's investigation is compromised, he and Jordan have no choice but to pretend they're a couple, and what starts out as a simple assignment begins to feel a lot like something more.

A Lot Like Love begins when the FBI needs Jordan to help in a case they working on. In order for her to help they are giving her an incentive, getting her brother out of prison, if she just brings a date (one of their agents) with her when she goes to a Valentines Day party. The problem is the man she has to end up taking is Nick McCall. These two don't exactly see eye to eye, and they didn't start out on the "right" foot either. So now not only do they have to work together, they have to pretend they are a couple. That is a lot easier said than done. Well sort of because they both have a strange attraction to each other, but neither one wants to admit it so they continue on with this charade for the greater good of well everyone... 

 But along the way these two end up with a lot more problems. Like the case changing in the middle of the op, and then they have to extend the mission so Jordan and Nick end up spending a lot more time together than they imagined. Jordan, and Nick both are holding back on the attraction between them, and now being forced to be together more often the sparks are seriously flying.. Soon they may not be able to hold back on it any longer. 

 A Lot Like Love was very enjoyable. I thought it was really good. It has a fun story line, and the characters were awesome. Jordan and Nick also made a beautiful couple, and I loved how sarcastic every one was in this one. This one had a lot of humor in it, and it made the book so much more enjoyable. Now I'm excited to read the next book in this series.
