"FBI agents Jessica Harlow and John Shepherd have a past. The former lawyer and cocky Army Ranger clashed during their training at Quantico and gladly went their separate ways after graduating from the Academy. Six years later, the last thing either of them expects is to be assigned to work as partners in a high-profile undercover sting. For both of them, being paired with an old rival couldn't come at a worse time. Recently divorced from a Hollywood producer and looking for a fresh start, Jessica is eager to prove herself at her new field office. And John is just one case away from his dream assignment to the FBI's elite Hostage Rescue Team. In order to nail a corrupt Florida politician, they'll have to find a way to work together--a task that becomes even trickier when they're forced to hole up at a romantic beachfront resort as part of the investigation. Suddenly, the heat behind their nonstop sparring threatens to make the job a lot more complicated"--Provided by publisher.

Review excerpt: "I spent one weekend reading 'The Thing About Love', and it was so enjoyable and so much fun that knowing that I still had more of it to read left me in the best mood. It lifted my entire weekend, and when people ask me about it, I grin and wave my hands around and make Good Book Noise® (and then those people probably regret asking me)."

Too much boring filler details; not enough plot, character development, or fun. I gave up half way thru this one.

Julie James lost her fabulous editor, Wendy McCurdy. The Thing About Love isn't as good as Ms. James' earlier books. It's a good beach read, but it lacks the sass and sizzle of her earlier books which were edited by Ms. McCurdy.

I've read all of them except for her first: Just the Sexiest Man Alive. My favorite is A Lot Like Love which the library sadly doesn't have in paperback. A close runner-up is Practice Makes Perfect.

It's been a fun beach-book-binge.
