Review "About That Night" by Julie James
About the book
He's Playing Games
Though Rylann Pierce tried to fight the sparks she felt for billionaire heir
Kyle Rhodes the night they met, their sizzling chemistry was undeniable. But
after being stood up on their first date, Rylann never expected to see him
again. So when she finds herself face-to-face with Kyle in a courthouse nine
years later, she's stunned. More troubling to the beautiful assistant U.S.
attorney is that she's still wildly attracted to him.
But She's Making The Rules
Just released from prison, Kyle Rhodes isn't
thrilled to be the star witness in a high-profile criminal case—but when Rylann
comes knocking at his door, he finds she may be the one lawyer he can't say no
to. Still as gorgeous and sharp-tongued as ever, she lays down the law: she
doesn't mix business with pleasure. But Kyle won't give up on something he
wants—and what he wants is the one woman he's never forgotten.
This story is fast-paced, realistic, natural, full of sarcastic lines, spirited and has two main characters, articulate and intelligent, with the best nicknames ever: Prosecutrix Pierce and The Twitter Terrorist :)) Loved both of them.
As you know, I love Julie James books. So, please
meet JJ at her best. This book is funny, real, sarcastic, sweet with
intelligent dialogues and full of witty lines. JJ writes amazing, strong female
characters and Rylann Prosecutrix Pierce made no exception :)
So, meet the law geek - Rylann Pierce/ Prosecutrix
Pierce and computer geek - Kyle Rhodes/Smug Dimples/ The Twitter Terrorist two great characters.
Ry is a typical Julie James's heroine. She
is strong, independent, intelligent, sarcastic, spirited,
self-controlled and no matter what she speaks her mind and never fear of
what people may think.
And Kyle... he's the rich family boy, billionaire
heir with brilliant mind and an equally stupidity.... You wouldn’t belive it,
right? But, yeah, he almost lost everything because of one brilliant,
crazy, stupid action.
He’s being dumped by his girlfriend with a message on
Twitter. How crazy is that??? :)) So, our boy is maaad and nearly drunk and
preparing for revange. Crashing Twitter for two days... And he
became the famous Twitter Terrorist.
Kyle is not a real hero, but is a great character. Kyle Rhodes turn the conviction in his favour and evolves from an
ex-con to a man who start up his own empire.
So, if you want a book that make you smile 90% of
your read, than this is the one!
