“My God, Jack-with a look like that, you two should just get a room. And try not to pick the one with a dead body next to it this time.”



That's right Julie James,you have reduced me into a gibbering incoherent mess!And that being said by a person whose job is to make valid,coherent arguments.Now every time I close my eyes,I picture Jack.freaking.Pallas.
“More like a chocolate molten lava cake. A dessert so sinful, so luscious, so filled with inner heat it made a girl want to lick each and every crumb right off the plate. That was Jack Pallas.”



I drooled.That's the ugly,embarassing truth.Whilst reading Something About You I.actually.drooled.And I thought my fangirl symptoms couldn't get any worse.

*sighs*

Let's take it from the start.Cameron Lynde is an Assistant U.S. Attorney who decides to give herself a treat and spend the weekend in a five star hotel,only to become witness to a murder involving a Senator.As if things weren't bad enough,the FBI investigation's leader is Jack Pallas,a man who holds a grudge against her for three years.When her testimony is the only thing that keeps the Senator out of jail,she has to constantly interract with said agent and the danger she faces brings them unexpectedly close.
“If it makes you feel better, I don’t give a fuck what comes through that door.They’re not getting to you.”

I loved loved LOVED this book!!It was really enjoyable and funny,with a generous dose of steam and hot'n'heavy tension (generous meaning your skin crawled with anticipation and your mouth dried and yes,drooling and hyperventilation and extremely high pitched noices were involved).If I thought J.D. from Practice Makes Perfect is hot,then Jack Pallas is a freaking volcano .



Lots of lava people.And sexual tension and angst and unspoken feelings and stolen kisses.Jack is glowering (dark;showing a brooding ill humor) and fits the strong alpha male type that sets you on fire.Grumpy,sassy but extremely adorable when he admits how he feels,he is pure perfection!Cameron is also a great,hilarious and relatable heroine and holy moly their chemistry is off.the.charts!!They are so stubborn that they keep fighting and bickering and driving each other crazy,until they embrace their feelings!I also loved the secondary characters,Amy and Collin and Wilkins are fantastic!!
“Jack turned to Cameron. "Do you just line them up, waiting to yell at me, on the off chance I'll stop by?”

Even though we learned pretty soon who the killer was,there was suspense and action,and secrets and betrayal that made Something About You a nice romantic suspense novel.My instinct about Julie James was right;I have found a new favorite romance author!!

“It should've been illegal for a man to walk around like that without some sort of permit.”

Julie James
“If we go now, there's no coming back. You're mine all night."
Her eyes flashed. "Promise?"
That was it.
Jack grabbed her hand and pulled her off the dance floor, toward the main entrance of the tent.”
Julie James, Something About You

Julie James
“If you think it means I'm asking you to move in with me, you'd be right." Her expression turned more serious. "If you also think it means that I wake up every morning wondering what I did to deserve having you back in my life, well, you'd be right about that, too."
Jack just sat there for a moment, just... stunned. No one had ever said anything like that to him.
"Come here," he said huskily. He grabbed her chair and pulled it toward his. He kissed her, softly at first, then his hand moved to her back and pushed her close as his emotions got the better of him. He pulled back to hold her gaze. "I love you, Cameron. You know that, right?"
She kissed him back, whispering the words in his ear. "I love you, too.”
