Jordan Rhodes minds her own business, busily running an exclusive, highly successful wine store. Most people don’t realize that Jordan has worked hard to make her wine shop a success without assistance from her billionaire father. She also spends a fair amount of time worrying about her brother, in prison for a seemingly silly social media crime. When FBI agent Nick McCall pays Jordan a visit and makes her an offer too good to turn down, she grabs it. All Jordan has to do is take a handsome new FBI agent as her date to the annual party of wealthy wine collector and suspected money launderer, Xander Eckhart, in order to plant bugs in his office. When the rookie agent ends up sick the day of the party, Jordan’s new date is the ruggedly handsome agent McCall. The FBI’s offer to free her brother early is the only reason she’s agreeing to work with Agent McCall. The attraction they feel comes as a surprise to both of them.

Nick appreciates Jordan’s beauty and sophistication, not to mention her business savvy, but he can’t help but see her as the spoiled princess-like daughter of a billionaire. After spending more and more time with Jordan when it appears she could be in danger, he realizes that his feelings for her have changed drastically and he’ll do anything necessary to keep her safe.
A LOT LIKE LOVE is a highly enjoyable romantic suspense. Ms. James obviously has a vast knowledge of wine and the wine industry, the resulting character conversations are comfortable and easy, making for a smooth, satisfying reading experience. Jordan and Nick have more in common than either would have initially realized. Both are fiercely loyal to family and friends, and their respect for each other’s commitment to their job is commendable. Secondary characters are equally well-written and their placement is the book plays an important role and at no time does their role feel forced or like filler. I give A LOT LIKE LOVE my highest recommendation for all readers who enjoy well-written romantic suspense.
