This was my first Julie James book and I liked it but I didn't love it, started off really good different story and great characters but by the middle Jason the male lead was getting on my nerves a bit with his playing around instead of just being up front with the female lead Taylor,I did love Jason's best friend Jeremey and I hope there's a book out there with his story, I am going to give the next book a go as I ordered both this and the next one but I can't make my mind up if I liked it or not.
Taylor Donovan is transferred to the LA branch of her law firm to deal with a high-stakes sexual harassment case, this is keeping her busy enough when her boss calls her in to his office and asks her to teach an actor how to be a lawyer for his next big role, but Jason Andrews is no ordinary actor, he has been voted four times the sexiest man alive, and has a reputation with women that legend's are made of most of it being true! So for Taylor, who recently dumped her cheating fiancé, this is not the dream job most women would kill for she hates Jason on site and try's to quit but her boss wont have it, as Jason doesn't feel the same and only wants Taylor for the job as she's the first challange his had in a while.
My problam with this was Taylor is meant to be a smart, no-nonsense kick-ass woman, with a great funny sarcastic sense of humour, but it doesnt take that long for her to fall for Jason's arrogance, and self important ways, I know the life he leads is the reason for the arrogant way he has with his approach to women, but it made me want to slap him sometimes and Taylor too for not calling him enough on it and seeing through his game at the party he throws. although he finally does realise his mistakes, for me it took awhile to get to that point and then Taylor who has her own issues after walking in on her ex with another woman that makes being with someone like Jason seem impossiable, but they get there in the end and get their HEA and I did love the end and the way the two finally get together, for me though it got a bit boring in the middle and I found myslef not caring too much hopefuly book two will be better and Ill re-read this and love it but for now I liked it but didnt push all my buttons
