HE’S USED TO GETTING WHAT HE WANTS…
A former football star and one of Chicago’s top prosecutors, Assistant U.S. Attorney Cade Morgan will do anything to nail a corrupt state senator, which means he needs Brooke Parker’s help. As general counsel for a restaurant company, she can get a bug to the senator’s table at one of her five-star restaurants so the FBI can eavesdrop on him. All Cade has to do is convince Brooke to cooperate—and he’s not afraid to use a little charm, or the power of his office, to do just that.
AND WHAT HE WANTS IS HER
A savvy businesswoman, Brooke knows she needs to play ball with the U.S. Attorney’s office—even if it means working with Cade. No doubt there’s a sizzling attraction beneath all their sarcastic quips, but Brooke is determined to keep things casual. Cade agrees—until a surprising turn of events throws his life into turmoil, and he realizes that he wants more than just a good time from the one woman with whom he could fall terrifyingly, irresistibly in love. . .
The year-long wait for the next book by Julie James at times goes by quickly. Like, say, when I haven't just finished a book she wrote. And as with the previous books in this series, I find myself craving -- nay, needing -- her next book as soon as I've reached The End. Love Irresistibly is no exception.
Cade Morgan is a dirty-talkin' man! I wasn't really prepared for how sexy this book would be. Ms. James writes some great heroines and her heroes are typically attractive, but AUSA Cade Morgan just lays everything on the line once Brooke Parker gets under his skin. I loved their banter from the get-go.
I wasn't sure if I'd like another attorney-attorney pairing, and I was also curious about how the romance would work if one half wasn't an AUSA (or with the FBI), but I'm happy to report this might be my favorite book by Ms. James. And if I could offer a suggestion: Agent Wilkins totally needs his own book.
