I’ve never read Julie James before, but I will definitely be reading more from her. The Thing About Love felt like a perfect beach read. I love “hate-to-love” books and this was one was so much fun.
I do want to note, that if you are a romantic suspense reader, you might be a tad disappointed. It is a romance first, with a small crime fighting element. The undercover case was very weak and obviously just included as a means to get this couple together. I’m not complaining though, I loved the book, so it worked for me.
I’m not sure why I liked this book so much other than it just made me happy. I couldn’t put it down and found myself smiling as I read it. I still wish I had read this a couple of months later, so I could have enjoyed it while lying on the beach. The great thing about finding a new author is that there is a backlog of books for you to enjoy. I’ll probably pick up one of those up for any beachy adventures this summer.
I received an advance review copy of this book that I have chosen to review.
