Review: About That Night by Julie James


Though Rylann Pierce tried to fight the sparks she felt for billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes the night they met, their sizzling chemistry was undeniable. But after being stood up on their first date, Rylann never expected to see him again. So when she finds herself face to face with Kyle in a courthouse nine years later, she’s stunned. More troubling to the beautiful Assistant U.S. Attorney is that she’s still wildly attracted to him.

Just released from prison, Kyle Rhodes isn’t thrilled to be the star witness in a high-profile criminal case—but when Rylann comes knocking at his door, he finds she may be the one lawyer he can’t say no to. Still as gorgeous and sharp-tongued as ever, she lays down the law: she doesn’t mix business with pleasure. But Kyle won’t give up on something he wants—and what he wants is the one woman he’s never forgotten. . .

One Julie James book per year is NOT enough.   That is my major complaint about this author.   

Nine years earlier, Rylann Pierce was a law school student celebrating with her friends in a bar when she's hit on by Kyle Rhodes.  She has no idea who he is until her BFF tells her.  She allows Kyle to walk her home from the bar, and they make a date.  Kyle doesn't show, though Rylann doesn't know why until the following morning.

We begin About That Night from Rylann's point of view, but it's Kyle and his situation which propels the narrative forward.  He's the connecting thread between A Lot Like Love (book 2) and About That Night.   We learn more about his case, which was a subplot of A Lot Like Love, as well what motivates him, both professionally and personally.

Rylann and Kyle make a solid couple, whether denying their respective attraction, bantering back and forth, or simply being in the same room together.  They are both likeable and genuine and practically combustible once they get together.
