Is there anything more seductive than a handsome, scruffy FBI agent posing as your boyfriend in order to get a rotten bad guy? I didn’t think so either.
In Julie James' A Lot Like Love, FBI agent Nick McCall is a veteran undercover operative. He’s widely regarded as one of the best at what he does, but there’s a personal cost. It’s hard to have a life of your own when your job requires that you disappear from home for weeks at a time. His most recent assignment took him away from his family for six months, and now he’s looking forward to a little break.
No such luck for Nick. There’s a notorious crime syndicate in Chicago that’s being systematically dismantled by law enforcement. The latest target is a restaurateur who’s laundering money for the mob, and Nick is charged with the task of supervising an undercover entrée into the criminals’ world. His ticket in is Jordan Rhodes, billionaire heiress, wine connoisseur, and no-nonsense knockout. Nick’s never had time for personal entanglements, and Jordan’s not the sort to date a scruffy cop kind of guy.
But there’s just something about an FBI agent, huh? Nobody in Jordan’s dating pool is anything quite like Nick, and there aren't too many gorgeous, sophisticated women running in Nick's circles. These two have little in common, except that spark. And how you'll swoon over it!
