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...
Chicago lawyer Taylor Donovan has been sent by her firm to LA to take charge of a sexual harassment case. But right in the middle the partners also put her in charge of Jason Andrews and the courtroom education he needs for an upcoming legal thriller he’s been cast in. Jason thinks he can pretty much charm his way into or out of anything and Taylor’s done with him before they even begin.
I admired Taylor from the beginning of the book. She had worked damn hard to get where she was and she had her eye on the prize – a partnership. She didn’t need anyone to get in her way. Was she possibly a tad too focused? Sure…but I understood her most of the time and enjoyed her drive.
Jason Andrews sounded heavenly…except he just expected everyone to fall at his feet. Did he get his comeuppance? Yeah. And I loved it. He really wasn’t a bad person he was just a little full of himself as I’m sure a lot of movie stars are.
I really enjoyed Taylor and Jason together. I loved the fact that as focused as Taylor was at some points in the book Jason could just make her laugh. I thought they had a great chemistry together and thought their story was great. I’m definitely looking forward to more of reading more books by Julie James.
