About That Night by Julie James

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.
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. . .

My thoughts:  I was really looking forward to this book.  I have to admit that when I first read about Kyle in A Lot Like Love he stole my heart and I couldn't wait to read his story.  I thought the nicknames that the heroine had  Prosecutrix Pierce and Meth Lab Rylann had were cute.

I enjoyed the banter and the witty remarks throughout the book but that was about it.  Nothing really happens, the book opens up with how our h/h meet nine years earlier and why the hero never keeps their first date.  Fast forward nine years and  Rylynn who is now a US Attorney who has just transferred to Chicago is asked to fill in on a case were she meets up with Kyle aka the Twitter Terrorist.  There is a small storyline that brings our h/h back together.  

For me, I wanted to see more action -- I wanted to see Rylann in court, I wanted to see the US Attorney's office needing Kyle's hacking skills.  Anything!?!?!?!?!   The sex scenes between Kyle and Rylann do sizzle and burn.  

If you've read the other books in her FBI/US Attorney series than enjoyed meeting up with the cast of characters again.  In fact one of best scenes in this book takes place a Chicago Bulls game between Kyle, Jack and Nick!

I purchased this book for my reading pleasure.
