A Disappointing Read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Practice Makes Perfect (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
I was disappointed with this book as I couldn't find any real connection with the two main characters. Also, when the reader finds out why the two main characters have been at each others throats for 7 years, it just seems a little implausible that one comment that was misconstrued on the second day of knowing each other has led to such hostility for so long. I didn't really feel that you noticed the change in the characters or how they developed. It just felt as though the author said they had fallen in love, therefore they had. You could't feel it develop or the relationship grow. I have read one other of Julie James' books but I got the same impression with that book also although out of the two, the Sexiest Man Alive is the better read (but only marginally). I thought I should read at least 2 of her books before writing her off (no pun intended). I don't think I'll be buying any more of her books. I'll stick to Suzanne Brockmann and Susan Elizabeth Phillips, with a good dose of Diana Palmer thrown in for the ultimate chick lit reads!
