In this endearing romance, James writes characters so real you can almost reach out and touch them. A delicious blend of romance and suspense, A Lot Like Love is entertaining from beginning to end. The “you have to stay with me so I can protect you” plot felt a tad contrived. It’s all too common in romances. However, despite the tiny manipulation, this is a thoroughly entertaining read.

Jordan Rhodes owns a wine store and loves her life. As the daughter of a billionaire, she is used to men pursuing her for the wrong reasons. But nothing prepares her for Nick McCall. He’s after her so she can help him gather evidence against the mob. Jordan agrees, in exchange for securing her brother’s freedom from prison. Nick enjoys good banter and Jordan’s witty conversation surprises him. When their original plan goes awry, Jordan and Nick must pretend to be boyfriend and girlfriend for much longer than one night. Somewhere along the line their pretend relationship becomes real and Nick must decide how much of his life he’s willing to change for Jordan. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Mar., 304 pp., $7.99)
