Before I read this book I read Julie James debut novel Just the Sexiest Man Alive, which I really had fun reading. So I was very much looking forward to reading Practice Makes Perfect since I heard it was a great read with high ratings. I haven’t read many romance novels with lawyers as the heroine or hero so this novel was a really change of pace for me. I have been told that I could be a lawyer since I love to make a case of almost every argument I have ever had. But once I found out everything you need to know to be a lawyer and all the hours on average a lawyer works a week I knew that was not a career for me. I really enjoyed the relationship between Payton and J.D. because they are such dedicated lawyers who have several characteristics in common with each other. I really got to know each character as I read this novel which is really great and I also thought that some of the scenes between Payton and J.D. were pretty hilarious that I found myself laughing out loud most of the time.
Payton is a very strong and independent woman and I had a great time getting to know her as well as see her develop as the novel progressed. J.D. is also a strong and independent man who was born wealthy but is really too cocky at times that I really just wanted to smack him at times but that didn’t turn me away from liking him as much as I do Payton. There was one thing that I really would have liked as I read this novel and that was a bit more steamy scenes between Payton and J.D. because I could tell that they have that hot and heavy attraction to each other. In the end, reading this novel was such a joy that I really do look forward to reading more books by Julie James in the future. Julie James delivers a hilariously funny novel with wonderfully intriguing characters that had me laughing and smiling.
