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.
This is the second book of FBI/US Attorney series and I liked it.
Julie James’ heroes were all stubborn alpha males. But they were all can be tamed by the right women just like how Jordan Rhodes tamed Nick McCall.
Nick McCall was an FBI Agent and Jordan Rhodes was a heiress billionaire who owned a wine store. They teamed up to take down Xander Eckhart who owned several restaurants and nightclubs. Both Nick and Jordan didn’t like each other at first. Their assignment or arrangement was to fake date. We all knew how that really turned out.
They started spending time together but as fake boyfriend and girlfriend. Of course. *eye roll* They came to care for each other and progressed into being in love with each other but too stubborn to admit that. Eventually they admitted their feelings.
I was happy to see Jack and Cameron again 🙂 One thing that Jack said toward the end got my attention and it was pretty much true, but it didn’t really affect or ran away from the tingly feelings inside their chests.
“Ever get the impression that these women are way out of our league?” …
“As it turned out he (Nick) didn’t care whose league Jordan was in. All that mattered was that she was his.”
When these heroes love, they love hard. And yes they took the bad guy out.
