Présentation de l'éditeur

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. . .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I LOVE THIS BOOK. 2 avril 2013
Par Paula - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Three years ago I read my first Julie James book, Something About You, and I've been addicted to her writing style ever since. I'm never left feeling disappointed after reading one of her books because, WOW, the woman definitely know how to write a contemporary with the perfect blend of romance, sizzling sexy times, wickedly funny humor, and smart characters. Love Irresistibly has exceeded my expectations and is WAY up there as one of my all-time favorite contemporary romance I've read thus far. Julie James, I bow down to you. You officially own me.

Brooke Parker is a fierce lawyer who kicks ass and takes names. She works for Sterling Restaurants, a fast growing food and beverage company, as general counsel. Since she took the job, her business savvy mind has helped the company grow steadily. She lives and breathes her job and all the challenges that come with it.

Cade Morgan is one of Chicago's top prosecutors. He used to have dreams of playing pro football once out of college but an unfortunate injury ended his football career. Now, as the assistant U.S. Attorney, he needs Brooke Parker's help to take down a corrupt state senator. Which means he needs Brooke to plant a bug in one of her restaurants so the FBI can eavesdrop on him. To do this, Cade needs to convince Brooke to help the FBI out. Brooke eventually agrees, but only after Cade is smoothly manipulated into returning her the favor someday. And when something happens at Brooke's company, she had no problem calling in that favor.
Cade made me purr with his charming and confident personality, successful career, and uber sexy body. And he cooks! I love a man who cooks. But Cade is not perfect. He's been told by the women he's dated in the past that he's `emotionally unavailable'--one of his hang ups from being abandoned by his father at a young age. But when Cade is stopped short by someone showing up unexpectedly in his life, he has to figure out how to move on from his issues with his father to make things right with this person. To add more confusion to his life, he has met his match in Brooke. This woman makes his head spin with lust. She drives him crazy and he's totally smitten with her. For the first time in his life, he feels like he's lost control over his emotions because of this woman. And, eventually, the perfectly constructed walls of his life start to crumble.

Brooke is definitely my kind of gal, one that drinks beer and loves baseball. She's whip smart, sassy, driven, and very successful. But, because she is so career driven, she's had issues with dating in the past. Her former boyfriend accused her of not being a `big picture girl.' He basically called her out by telling her she's not the type of woman who would slow down long enough to settle down with a family. Brooke knows this, and it hurts, but at the same time, she grew up feeling like she needs to be the best at everything. To say she's an over-achiever is putting it mildly. And dating always comes last where her career is concerned. So when she meets Cade, imagine her surprise when she finds the infuriating, cocky, gorgeous lawyer irresistible and impossible to ignore.
I loved watching these two throw barbs back and forth. It was definitely love at first verbal quip. And let me tell you, the verbal sparring and sarcastic banter was SO entertaining. I was seriously doubled over laughing. And the way Brooke called Cade out on his crap made me hoot and holler `you go girl.' Check out this scene and tell me it's not hilarious.

"This is quite impressive," she said.
So she'd noticed. Good. "It's no trouble," he said with a wink.
He took a bite of his omelet. Brook dug in herself, chewing thoughtfully. "Let me ask you something. Do you tailor the breakfast to the woman you've just spent the night with, or is it always a Denver omelet?"
Cade paused midchew.
Oh, s***.
Continuing on before he could answer, Brooke picked up her coffee cup and cradled it in both her hands. "Don't get me wrong, I love a Denver omelet as much as the next girl. But I'm curious whether that's your thing, or if you try to change up the routine depending on the specific woman. You know...like, green pepper because I have green eyes, ham because I'm so funny, and onions for the tears you'll shed after I leave."

Oh, SNAP. Take that Mr. Morgan. I love that scene. I also love Denver omelets and would let Cade fix me one anytime. *wink*

This couple is fabulously fun and it was sexy to watch as they knock heads and then knock boots in the bedroom. And, oh, my word...the heat in the bedroom is sizzling HAWT. These two have some scrumptious, scorching hot chemistry.

When feelings begin to develop between these two, they both realize they are so far out of their element and have no idea how to act upon these feelings. I loved seeing two very confident people, with successful careers, fumble at love. They definitely make some mistakes in the process, but seeing them slowly come together and figure things out as they bumble through the unknown, was beautiful and very realistic. This was definitely not insta-love, which I appreciate. And when love creeps up on them, I loved seeing this power couple come unraveled by their feelings.

So many things tied this story together nicely. Not only was there great banter and awesome chemistry, but the secondary characters added a lot of fun to the story. I absolutely adored Ford, Brooke's best friend from childhood. I hope to see a story with him. I also loved Cade's FBI buddies, who are hilarious and add a great bro-mance to the story. And then we have the unexpected bombshell that's dropped into Cade's lap. That part of the story really tugged at my heartstrings.

Julie James has created an extremely well-constructed storyline. Her writing flows smoothly. It's flawless, delightful, and never dull with all the witty moments. I devoured this book. I sat in my bed while reading this story kicking my feet excitedly with a big goofy grin on my face the entire time. Do yourself a favor and meet Cade and Brooke. They are a deliciously sexy and fun couple!

Even though I did not care for the last Julie James title, I was still looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, Love Irresistibly suffers from a few of the same issues About That Night had.

To begin with, there is very little in the way of conflicts or obstacles for the hero and heroine to overcome. The description of the book says, "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."

This isn't the storyline of the book - it's simply the way the two main characters meet. The bugging of the table and its outcome are actually over quite early in the story. From that point on, we're reading a lot about two work driven people who grant each other booty call status. Since the situation regarding the bugging of the table, and the subsequent favor Brooke calls in later are over and done with quickly and don't amount to any real meaningful part of the story, it really doesn't matter where these people work - they could have worked at Dunkin Donuts. There was very little connection in the story between the action and the type of jobs the characters have. Labeling this book part of a FBI/US Attorney series seemed rather pointless.

The rest of the story has the main characters struggling with their personal trust issues. There was a great deal of inner contemplation and discussions with friends about whether the two main characters should give in to their feelings and allow themselves to love. Honestly, all that whining and emoting began to make them sound like people on a reality show (I detest reality shows). When a frank two minute conversation between the main characters can clear up the perceived problems, there simply isn't a lot going on. I don't want to read about people thinking. I want the characters to be DOING something. Julie James' earlier titles (Practice Makes Perfect, Something About You and Just the Sexiest Man Alive) had their flaws, but they were funny and witty and the main character's occupations were actually meaningful to the story.

A few final issues...the character Zach does not sound/read like a sixteen year old boy. The voice just sounded wrong. Zach simply should have introduced himself as "Convenient Plot Progression Garrity". The constant references to hip and trendy eateries start to grate on the nerves (although I'll give you the dessert cart references - those were funny). The emphasis and descriptions of the shoes are getting tiresome and if the main female character's best friend calls her "Babe" (in any of James' novels) one more time, I may have to punch someone in the throat. The ending was abrupt. I actually turned the page to see what would happen next, only to discover that was the end of the story. And finally (I promise), is there any chance of the characters having names that aren't straight off the "Trendy Androgynous Name List"? Payton,Cameron,Rylann,Jordan,Taylor....at least Brooke was a step in the right direction, but then we went off the rails a little with the guy's names - Cade, Ford, Vaughn... All of these things add up to a lot of flash, taking away from what used to be substance.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Oh so satisfying 2 avril 2013
Par A. Gatto - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is my favorite in this series but could be read and enjoyed as stand alone. While its lacking in the suspense factor that initially drew me to this series, it's a story that can be enjoyed no matter what you're in the mood for. Humor, romance, drama, sex - its all present and wonderfully blended into a truely satisfying read.

The main characters, as well as the secondary characters as so well developed the story is immediately engaging. I had initially been looking forward to a little more continuation in the story lines of all the previous main characters. While there is a little bit of that, it wasn't until I was finished that I realized that there hadn't been as much as I'd hoped for. I guess I didn't miss them. The new characters were fresh and fun and I look forward (hint hint) to more of this series.

I don't like to give a 'thumbs down' to a favorite author. However, even though Julie James is an automatic buy for me, I have been underwhelmed by her last few books. Her latest, "Love Irresistibly" is my least favorite of her works, to date. Ms. James hooked me as a reader with her first novel "Just the Sexiest Man Alive" and anyone who enjoys madcap, humorous, touching, sexy contemporary romantic plot lines should definitely read her debut novel. I enjoyed the next few books following the first release, but I have noticed a trend toward the 'been there, done that' with the author's latest books. In her bio Ms. James identifies herself as an attorney, but perhaps she needs to step outside her comfort zone again and create characters that are not lawyers or FBI agents. Her characters are beginning to blend together to the point that when they make a cameo appearance in later books I have to really struggle to recall their particular story lines!

In "Love Irresistibly" the author introduces us to Cade and Brooke. Cade is a U.S. District Attorney and Brooke is a high-powered attorney for a Chicago restaurant. The story starts out well, but the conflict between the main characters regarding their work cross purposes is quickly resolved, and the remainder of the book just deals with their own personal issues, his of father abandonment and hers of relationship inattention. Also, I never really believed in the 'love connection' between Cade and Brooke. It seemed like they were more 'in lust' than in love. I noticed that the sex scenes dominated their relationship, and while the author handles that really well in all her books, I found that 'less would have been more' in this book. In addition, I agree with another reviewer who commented on the portrayal of Cade's half brother Zach. Zach's dialogue and behavior was unbelievable for any 16 year old.

If you have never read anything by Julie James then you will probably like this book. However, if you have come to know and expect more from this wonderful author you may find her latest book "Love Irresistibly" very easy to resist re-reading!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love Irresistibly is a fantastic read 3 avril 2013
Par Mary @ *Buried Under Romance* - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Another riveting read from Julie James, and one I am not about to forget for a while. LOVE IRRESISTIBLY differs from the previous books in the FBI/U.S. Attorney series in being more character driven, and less reliant on a grander premise to draw the hero and heroine together. The story is Cade and Brooke, just them, and how they each invaded each other's lives in the most touching and necessary of ways.

Brooke Parker is a successful General Counsel for an expanding restaurant company. She has not once taken her eyes off her goals, living a fast-paced and extremely busy life. In fact, work is her life. Because of that, her relationships have always ended abruptly, with the others claiming that she's not a "big-picture" type of girl. Believing what she needs is a no-strings-attached relationship, she finds a partner in Cade Morgan, Assistant U.S. Attorney, who is as devastatingly charming as can be. Cade is handsome, confident, and talented, and he's also not looking for a soul-searching, long-term relationship. But for these two people thinking they want only a temporary arrangement, love surges like a spark of thunder, forcing them to open their eyes and change their lives for the permanent future.

What is amazing about this novel is Julie James's remarkably ability for turning daily, supposedly mundane events into development steps for her characters. The writing is superb and flows like fine-tuned clockwork, turning each day into one of contemplation and subtle change for Cade and Brooke. As Brooke comes to realize that it's time to slow down her life, refocus on the friends and family she's been missing out due to work, Cade slowly bonds with the half-brother he's never known for 16 years, and takes steps to forming a relationship with the father who abandoned him.

There's a duality of pacing and scenes in this novel that, while seemingly at odds, forms a harmony that completes the missing emotional component of Cade and Brooke's lives. From Brooke's workaholic schedule to Cade's afternoon with his brother, every scene captures in startlingly attention the internal realities and desires of these two. And of course, complemented with the usual Julie James wit and humor in dialogue, LOVE IRRESISTIBLY is a gem of a read. Between the friendship and laughter of Cade and his charming FBI friends and the emotionally (and sexually) potent interaction of Cade and Brooke comes a great love story that is highly recommended.
