Practice Makes Perfect

Practice Makes Perfect is the second book to be released by Julie James. From the back cover.~


Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson are lawyers who know the meaning of objection. A feminist to the bone, Payton has fought hard to succeed in a profession dominated by men. Born wealthy, privileged, and cocky, J.D. has fought hard to ignore her. Face-to-face, they’re perfectly civil. They have to be. For eight years they have kept a safe distance and tolerated each other as coworkers for one reason only: to make partner at the firm.


But all bets are off when they’re asked to join forces on a major case. Though apprehensive at first, they begin to appreciate each other’s dedication to the law-and the sparks between them quickly turn into attraction. But the increasingly hot connection does not last long when they discover that only one of them will be named partner. Now it’s an all out war. And the battle between the sexes is bound to make these lawyers hot under the collar…

I’ll admit I’ve had Practice Makes Perfect in my TBR pile for some time. However, when Stacy did her spotlight on Julie James, everyone made a comment about how much they loved Practice Makes Perfect, and especially J.D., so I had to move it up to the top of my list.

I loved Practice Makes Perfect! The chemistry between Payton and J.D. is amazing. They also were really funny, whether trying to beat each other to the office in the morning or pulling of the better prank against one another. The fireworks really ignite when they are forced to work on a case together that will guarantee one person makes partner and one person looks for another job. Working so close finally allows the chemistry that has always been between them to come to the surface.

I've loved both of Julie's books that I've read so far, and am really looking forward to her next release Something About You, which comes out in March 2010. Julie's books are smart, funny, and very sexy.

Wasn't this book wonderful? Usually the hero is where it's at, but one of my favorite things about Julie's books is that she creates these amazing heroines, women who are smart, funny, and exceptionally likable. These women give as good, or better, as they get. Take the infamous courtroom scene. Who would have expected Payton to react the way she did? Priceless.

And J.D.'s no slouch either. Adored him too. Am chomping at the bit for the next one!

It really was wonderful and I loved the courtroom scene. Made me laugh out loud. I love that Julie writes such strong, smart and funny heroines who really do give as good as they get.

Loved J.D. too! I too am chomping at the bit for the next one.
