Summary (cr: goodreads)

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.

My Review: (also in goodreads)

So this is the 2nd book of the FBI / Attorney series after Something About You. Though it would be lovely that I would revisit Jack Pallas and Cameron Lynde, it was time for the story of the main protagonists, Nick McCall and Jordan Rhodes, to shine. Nick is a special agent who is suddenly assigned to work with a newbie (Agent Huxley) in an undercover  operation and help him on the case involving Martino (as introduced in book 1). They are tasked to ask the help of millionaire's daughter Jordan in return, they will work on the freedom of her twin brother Kyle. But due to unforeseen events, the two are stuck together in the assignment as a fake couple and it begins. 

I love that Julie James' books thread in the same universe. At one instance, Scott Casey was mentioned (another character from Just the Sexiest Man Alive) and that Jack and Nick were rivals in a trash-talking friendly way. I love how the characters are connected and that my suspicions are correct, the series..actually her books are situated in the same environment. I recommend this book and I suggest readers to start from Just the Sexiest Man Alive. Guess, I'll read the third book. ^^

Till the next read...
