Something About You RECOMMENDED: Something About You by Julie James is $1.99! This is the very first James book I read and it’s the first in the FBI/US Attorney series. James does competence porn really well and this ranks high on my enemies to lovers catnip. There’s something about the New York Times bestselling Julie James… FATE HAS THROWN TWO SWORN ENEMIES… Of all the hotel rooms rented by all the adulterous politicians in Chicago, female Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde had to choose the one next to 1308, where some hot-and-heavy lovemaking ends in bloodshed. And of all the FBI agents in Illinois, it had to be Special Agent Jack Pallas who gets assigned to this high-profile homicide.

Catherine: Trade Me by Courtney Milan, has a Chinese American heroine and a white American hero, and there is a lot he doesn’t get. (He does learn, though, and it is funny and sweet and delightful). A | BN | K | AB Also, The Chai Factor, which I just finished reading last night and is marvellous! Heroine is Muslim and first generation Indian-Canadian, hero is white. It’s from the heroine’s viewpoint, and very embedded in her community. (Note, there are characters who are having to put up with a lot of homophobia, there is also racism and islamophobia. It is dealt with in the book, but might be triggery for some.) And, I mean, all of the Amour et Chocolat books…
