If you like contemporary romance and you haven’t read Julie James yet, WTF are you waiting for? James has storytelling, especially romance, down to an artform. Her books are fun, sexy, full of great dialogue, and above all two characters that come together in the most perfectly unpredictable ways. Her latest book, The Thing About Love, is no different.

The book opens up in a tragic scene, where the main character John comes home from an undercover assignment and finds his girl on top of his best friend– in bed. Seems like the perfect opportunity to join the elite FBI team that will take him to Washington and away from friends, family, and memories. His last undercover assignment is going to be a simple one, except for his new partner, none other than the one agent that has been able to best him. He hasn’t seen her since Quantico and the last thing he knew she was married to some Hollywood big shot in L.A., so of all the people he expected, Jessica Harlow was not on that list. Jessica, who drove him crazy during training, Jessica who is still as hard-headed, competitive, and sexy as ever. They instantly fall back into old competitive habits, fighting, misinterpreting each other’s actions negatively…until it finally explodes, which was great to read.

I love me some hate to love reads! I’m not always keen on preestablished feelings, but the dislike one works for me. There were all these flashbacks to fun scenes where the two characters interacted…and you see both sides of the story, realizing how both of them could have interpreted the situation in the way they did and how stupid they were and how they needed to get together STAT. Then there was the humorous part of the story, which had me laughing out loud a few times. Overall, I loved this book and the romance between John and Jessica. I can’t wait to read more from Julie James and am about to go and attack her older titles that I missed.

Two undercover FBI agents can hide who they are from everyone but each other in the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Suddenly One Summer.
FBI agents Jessica Harlow and John Shepherd have a past. The former lawyer and cocky Army ranger clashed during their training at Quantico, gladly going their separate ways after graduating from the Academy. Six years later, the last thing either of them expects is to run into each other again–assigned to work as partners in a high-profile undercover sting.
For both of them, being paired with a former rival couldn’t come at a worse time. Recently divorced from a Hollywood producer and looking for a fresh start, Jessica is eager to prove herself at her new field office. And John is just one case away from his dream assignment to the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team. In order to nail a corrupt Florida politician, they’ll have to find a way to work as a team–a task that becomes even trickier when they’re forced to hole up at a romantic, beachfront resort as part of the investigation. Suddenly, the heat behind their nonstop sparring threatens to make the job a whole lot more complicated. . .
