Review: Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James

practice-makes-perfectFrom the back of the book:

When it comes to the laws of attraction…

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 of the firm.

…There are no rules.

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 names partner. Now it’s an all-out war. And the battle between the sexes is bound to make these lawyers hot under the collar…

This is the second book that I have read by Julie James. I have to say that I liked the first one (JUST THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE) better. This book had way too much legalese for me. I liked the story and the characters, but every time something technical would come up I was thrown out of the story. For example, at one point a deposition needs to be taken and the author goes into a lot of detail about what kind of deposition using numbers and letters. It makes no difference to the story what kind of deposition it was, so all of that information took away from the story. I liked both characters, but felt that there was a lot of juvenile behaviour that didn’t fit their personalities. I look forward to reading more by Julie James, and hope that there is a lot less law stuff to it and more romance!

the book girl gives PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Julie James 3/5!
