STORY (contemporary romance) - Love Irresistibly continues with all the things I like about this series. The main characters are intelligent and successful, there is an interesting plot going on besides just the romance and there is lots of sassy dialogue! In this book, Cade is a successful US Attorney and Brooke is the corporate attorney for an elite restaurant chain. They are thrown together as part of a criminal investigation Cade is working on, and the clever banter and sarcasm begins...until they start realizing they might actually like each other. There is also a pretty good sub-plot involving Cade's new-found brother, Zack, which Cade didn't realize existed.
There is sex in this book and it's fairly explicit, but it is only a few scenes and they're relatively short. Personally, that's how I like my romance novels -- hot but not a lot!
PERFORMANCE - As always, I enjory Karen White's narrations. Not only does she do a good job, but her natural voice lends itself equally to portraying male and female characters well. No wimpy, nasally Romeo here!
OVERALL - This romance stands alone, though there are "updates" on characters from previous books (like Cameron from Book 1 is now pregnant, etc). If you think you might be interested in all the characters in the series, you need to start with Book 1. There is explicit sex as mentioned above, and there are a few F-words in sexual situations. Nice, easy listen with no violence. Highly recommended for any female who enjoys contemporary romance stories!

What did you like best about Love Irresistibly? What did you like least?
The witty banter in the book is well written and well performed. What I didn't like is the fact that the premise of this series is characters associated with the FBI and the US Attorneys office. The first in the series used the premise well for an excellent Romantic-Suspense. The following 3 editions of this series are pretty much straight contemporary romance with very little, if any, suspense/mystery/action in the plot. A bit boring for my taste.
Would you be willing to try another book from Julie James? Why or why not?
Not sure - she started out strong with a really good romantic suspense - but then it pretty much became straight romance. Several hours of angst and why we can't be together is a drag to me - very predictable storyline and ending.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Karen White?
Yes - she is very good.
Was Love Irresistibly worth the listening time?
Mixed feelings on that. I can't say it isn't well written and narrated - just a bit boring. I think I am done with the series as it has become what does not interest me - straight contemporary romance.
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed this author when she added action/suspense in the mix. I'll be looking to see if she does anything like that again in the future.
