Meet Julie James
In Something about You Cameron Lynde, an Assistant U.S. Attorney, taking a break while her floors are being refinished, inadvertently "witnesses" a murder in an adjacent hotel room. FBI Special Agent Jack Pallas is called to investigate. As you might expect, Cameron and Jack have a past, an unpleasant one, full of misunderstandings and false beliefs. Their interaction is lively, witty and fun to read.
Just the Sexiest Man Alive features a big-time movie star and a Chicago lawyer working on a sexual harassment case in Los Angeles. Taylor Donovan balks when asked to coach Jason Andrews, aka "the sexiest man alive," for a movie in which he plays an attorney. While Jason is immediately attracted to Taylor, she is very skeptical of the movie star. She soon learns that Jason takes his work very seriously, and is a normal person under all that sexiness.
In Practice Makes Perfect, Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson have been competing against each other at the same law firm for 8 years, and are both now up for partnership. In addition, they are asked to land a big case for which they both have expertise. When the head of the litigation department informs the couple that only one of them can make partner in this economy, the stakes get even higher. Yet, while the competition may bring out the worst in each of them, it also raises certain emotions that were hidden beneath early faux pas on both sides. For the Pride and Prejudice lovers, this story plays homage to the same theme - both characters are a bit prejudiced against the other's background and prideful of their accomplishments as lawyers. It's fun to see them really get to know each other as more than, and different from, those preconceived characters. And of course, the discussions between characters of one of our favorite books was one of our favorite parts.
All three of Ms. James' books received 4+ stars on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and they deserved those ratings. Take a couple of these on your next vacation and enjoy.
