Summary (cr: goodreads)

Fate has thrown two sworn enemies...
Of all the hotel rooms rented by all the adulterous politicians in Chicago, female Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde had to choose the one next to 1308, where some hot-and-heavy lovemaking ends with a death. And of all the FBI agents in Illinois, it had to be Special Agent Jack Pallas who gets assigned to this high-profile homicide. The same Jack Pallas who still blames Cameron for a botched crackdown three years ago—and for nearly ruining his career.

Into each other's arms...
Work with Cameron Lynde? Are they kidding? Maybe, Jack thinks, this is some kind of welcome-back prank after his stint away from Chicago. But it's no joke; the pair is going to have to put their rocky past behind them and focus on the case at hand. That is, if they can cut back on the razor-sharp jibes—and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension

My Review: (also in goodreads)

So this kicks off the FBI / US Attorney romance series by Julie James. Cameron Lynde is an assistant US attorney and Jack Pallas is one of the best agents..apparently he was transferred to Nebraska and due to the protagonists long and complicated past relationship they are determined to hate each other (at least with Pallas). And as Jack Pallas redeems his post in Chicago he didn't want to cross paths with her. Unfortunately, a high profile case will bring them back together and they must work professionally...that's where the conflict begins.

I find this book quite interesting. I already read 2 of her other books: Just the Sexiest Man Alive and Practice Makes Perfect and I must say that the author writes well. I obviously love the lawyer parts and the cop lines, the banter and the witty retorts. And since this is the first book in the series, I'm anticipating the second one. I suspect it to be the same people in the environment with different romance-focused protagonists but former protagonists will be mentioned once in a while...let's see~

Till the next read...
