So I decided that after reviewing Julie James novel, Practice Makes Perfect, I would give her debut novel a read. I really enjoyed reading this novel since it’s about a lawyer and a movie start getting together, which I knew had to be a fun read. Taylor Donovan is a lawyer who is assigned to coach People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” movie star Jason Andrews with his role in his next big legal thriller. I laughed so much while reading this novel since I think Taylor and Jason clashed with one another many times because there was so much sexual tension going on between them. I liked that I laughed about the antics that these two characters would get into since it makes reading the novel so much more enjoyable. You can tell that Taylor and Jason can’t believe that they are attracted to one another so intensely and they are trying to work through them working with each other while making their budding relationshiop work. One of the draw backs with this novel which I find is one of the things that I don’t much care for in Julie’s books is that it’s a sweet romance with no actual love scenes just a prelude to a love scene. So I guess in the end I give this book 3.5 Open Books:
JUST THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE by Julie James $ 6.99 (296 Pages)
COOL. CALM. COLLECTED.
Nothing fazes Taylor Donovan. In the courtroom she never lets the opposition see her sweat. In her personal life, she never lets any man rattle her–not even her cheating ex-fiancé. So when she’s assigned to coach People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for his role in his next big legal thriller, she refuses to fall for the Hollywood heartthrob’s charms. Even if he is the Jason Andrews.
CONFIDENT. FAMOUS. IRRESISTIBLE.
Jason Andrews is used to having women fall at his feet. When Taylor Donovan gives him the cold shoulder, he’s thrown for a loop. She’s unlike any other woman he’s ever met: uninterested in the limelight, seemingly immune to his advances, and shockingly capable of saying no to him. She’s the perfect challenge. And the more she rejects him, the more he begins to realize that she may just be his perfect match…
