When I read a Julie James book, there are three things that are guaranteed to happen – I will smile, I will laugh and I will undoubtedly fall in love with a hero who has a four letter name. Most recently, I fell in love with Cade Morgan.
Julie James has a spectacular talent for taking ordinary events and writing them so that they are charming, heart-warming and sexy. Brooke Parker is a general counsel for a restaurant company. She is successful and beautiful but also a workaholic. After being dumped for the third time in as little as eighteen months, Brooke realizes that she isn’t living the well-balanced life she hopes to have for herself. Similarly, Assistant U.S. Attorney and former hotshot college football player, Cade Morgan is at the top of his game, working as one of the top prosecutors in Chicago. His latest case involves working alongside the FBI where he requires the help of Brooke to eavesdrop on a very important meeting in Brooke’s five star restaurant. But like Brooke, relationships haven’t been working well for Cade either. As sparks ignite and sexual tension builds so thick it can’t even be cut through with a knife, Cade and Brooke decide to indulge a little bit. Hot sex with no strings attached. But as emotions sneak into the equation, can Brooke and Cade simply remain friends with benefits or could they have finally found a relationship that can last?
LOVE IRRESISTIBLY reads almost like a TV show; it’s smart, sure-footed and wraps up effortless in the end. I loved the way James was able to involve the anticipation and suspense with the FBI storyline but not make the whole book about it. The romance between Brooke and Cade is strong and is very much the driving force of the book.
James never lets me down. The pacing is perfection, the writing is free-flowing and hits all the right notes. But the sex…someone call the fire department ‘cause James is turning up the heat! I’ve noticed the dial turning up in terms of the sexiness in James’s books and hey, I’m not complaining one bit!
Fans of Jill Shalvis will enjoy the side-splitting narration that James brings to all her books. LOVE IRRESISTIBLY gets a Top Pick from me. I was riveted to the pages and devoured it within just a few hours of starting it. Sexy, smart and fun – Those are the trademarks of Julie James’s writing and she never fails to deliver!

What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
