Review: The Thing About Love

Book Review: The Thing About Love, by Julie James, 5 stars


FBI agents Jessica Harlow and John Shepherd have a past. The former lawyer and cocky Army Ranger clashed during their training at Quantico and gladly went their separate ways after graduating from the Academy. Six years later, the last thing either of them expects is to be assigned to work as partners in a high-profile undercover sting.

For both of them, being paired with an old rival couldn’t come at a worse time. Recently divorced from a Hollywood producer and looking for a fresh start, Jessica is eager to prove herself at her new field office. And John is just one case away from his dream assignment to the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team. In order to nail a corrupt Florida politician, they’ll have to find a way to work together—a task that becomes even trickier when they’re forced to hole up at a romantic beachfront resort as part of the investigation. Suddenly, the heat behind their nonstop sparring threatens to make the job a lot more complicated...

Review: The Thing About Love is a story you just can't put down. I have to admit it's been a while since I had so much fun with a book.

There's something about the way Julie James weaves her plots that gets you hooked from page one. And then, John and Jessica aren't just perfect for each other - they are a riot together, right from the first time they meet (which happened six years before the story in the book takes place). There are several flashbacks to their time in the Academy, seen alternatively from her perspective and from his and it's funny to see how they differ.

I loved everything about this book, but mostly I loved how John and Jessica have a history together and how that reflects on who they are now. The only thing that bothered me was the fact that they actually meet again by pure chance. What if they had never met again and missed their great chance of a happily ever after?

Well, I could go on repeating myself and saying again how much I love The Thing About Love, so let's cut it short and I'll just tell you this - if you like the genre, you can't miss this book. 


Happy Monday,
