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.
The Julie James FBI/US Attorney series glomming continues!
This one was good. I enjoyed it but not as much as books #1 and #5. It was good. Not great but good.
Of course, some of my trepidation maybe related to the fact that I dislike deception in Romance books. I don’t know why, it just makes me all squirmy. While I understood the reason and nature of the deception (Jordan and Nick pretend to be a couple in order to get information to stop mafia related corruption), it still bothered me. Especially since Jordan has to introduce an undercover Nick to her friends under a false identity. She felt bad about deceiving her friends and I felt bad about it, too. I actually took quite some time (for me) to finish reading this one – I kept putting it down due to the deception – but since the deception wasn’t between the hero and heroine I was able to finish the book with too much squirming.
