Posing as business executives at a romantic seaside resort, it doesn’t take long for John and Jessica to recognize their missteps from the past and act on their attraction. But does their relationship have a future if John gets his dream job in the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team?
As always, it was an absolute delight to return to Ms. James’ Chicago and read about past favorite characters in passing. John Shepherd was the perfect feminist hero in almost every respect and I can’t help but find him toe-curlingly sexy.
Jessica Harlow was a badass as well, constantly working twice as hard as everybody else so that she is not taken lightly by those who can’t see past her pretty face. Ms. James has done a fantastic job of describing the details of FBI training and operations. Despite the seriousness of their profession, the characters always have a hilarious inner monologue.
John and Jessica have become one of my top Julie James couples. From not wasting time on cliched hangups to respecting each other personally and professionally, they constantly brought out the best in each other. The Thing About Love is a truly progressive contemporary romance from an author in top form.

Jessica Harlow is a dedicated undercover FBI agent coming out of a divorce to a Hollywood producer. Now there’s another high pressure job that must be time consuming and involve lots of travel. One would think that a famous movie producer would get dedication to the job and how it interferes in your personal life from day to day plans to vacations and career milestone celebrations. But I guess in some couples there is only room for one mover and shaker while the other partner gets to suffer the selfish consequences. So Jessica returns home to Chicago to the warm embrace of her family and the field office located there.
John Shepherd is also getting out of rocky relationship with someone who could not take the constant travel mandated by his own undercover job with the FBI. This opens up an opportunity for him to try out for the elite Hostage Rescue Team which had been the underlying purpose of his recruitment from the Army Rangers. He had put it off for a few years in order to support his family during a time of need and now was the time to go for the goal so to speak. Just one last case.
Unfortunately for John, that last case partnered him up with Jessica, with whom he had a fierce competition with back in their days at the FBI training academy. They both had their strengths and their weaknesses and that clash of competitiveness along with a few misunderstandings led them both to have an almost instant acrimonious relationship.
The case that they are working on really does not lend anything but a backdrop to the story. A place for them to find a neutral territory in order to deal with their past relationship and forge a better understanding of each other. The back and forth banter in this book is quite enjoyable and not too over the top. These two quickly found common ground and their previous acrimonious relationship did not spill over into the new relationship they were building as partners too much after their initial confrontations.
I still felt like there was something missing in these characters. I just cannot quite pinpoint what it is at this moment. They both had family and friends and there were some complications with those relationships as well but I felt like I was missing a key component to their personalities. I’m not sure what it was. Maybe just it seemed that work and family was all there was? I’m not sure I got a feel for who these characters were aside from the fact that they loved their jobs respectively.
