For the last eight years, lawyers Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson have been at war. A quiet conflict of looks, sarcasm and snide comments disguised beneath fake smiles and phoney camaraderie. Because if there's one thing they both agree on, it's the determination to make partner, and with one month to go, neither want to risk messing things up. It's not like they're competing against each other, anyway.
Until their boss makes an announcement. There's only one partnership place open this year, and the decision is close. It's time for the war to go public, and it's not just personal anymore.
Witty, competitive, intelligent and laugh-out-loud fun, James' second novel sparks from start to finish. Payton and J.D. are so alike in their focus, drive, prideful determination and sarcastic confidence that the only difference between them is where they started from. Circumstances which they're both trying to outgrow.
The tension between the pair is antagonistic and hot, but the humour is what makes this book so good - the coffee shop scene, the coffee and shoe sabotage, the Pride and Prejudice conversations - this book romps along in the best style. A fabulous pick me up, with a surprisingly romantic turn. My only problem is... I still don't know what J.D. stands for!
