From the publisher’s website:

Nothing fazes Taylor Donovan—not in the courtroom and not in her personal life. So when she’s assigned to coach People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for his role in the next big legal drama, she refuses to fall for the Hollywood heartthrob’s charms. Even if he is the Jason Andrews

My thoughts: 

I don’t read much contemporary romance. I prefer my love stories with werewolves and/or vampires. Faeries are nice too ;) I had heard great things about Julie James so I decided to see what all the fuss was about.  

Just the Sexiest Man Alive was a quick and fun read. I enjoyed the banter between Taylor and Jason. I liked that Taylor was a strong and independent woman. She was established in her career as a lawyer and happy for the most part with her life. This book was difficult to put down and had me up past my bedtime reading. I'd highly recommend it. 

You can find out more about Julie James on her website or blog.


  1. I read JTSMA when I was first delving into contemps - now Julie James is an auto-buy for me and now I love contemps too!

  2. I agree with you that I don't read contemporaries as much as paranormal or historicals, but lately there have been some pretty good authors, and I have heard some great things about Julie James!! Thanks for the Review, I am really excited to read this book!

  3. She is just so much fun, isn't she? I loved this one and PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.

  4. Great review, I've been wondering about this author. I usually read historicals instead of contemporaries, but this one sounds good!

  5. Great review. I don't read many books like this, but this sounds interesting!
