When combining humor with romance, a good writer leaves you with a smile on your face. A great writer leaves you with a smile on your face AND a grin in your heart. That’s just what “Practice Makes Perfect” by Julie James did for me. The characters are memorable, their interaction spicy yet still G-rated, and their happily ever after left me with a $#@t-eating grin on my face.
They couldn’t be more different. He comes from money, her single-parent mother is a rights activist. He’s a republican, she’s a democrat. He drives a Bentley, she takes the bus. He lives in a high-rise, she has a small house. BUT, they’re both lawyers, they both work their butts off, they both were tops in their class, and now they’re both up for partner…at the same firm…and there’s only one opening. Oh, did I forget to mention that they’ve been involved in a quiet passive-aggressive war for the last eight years? Or that they’re quite attracted to each other? Or that their shenanigans kept me in stitches?
I can’t say enough good things about this book. In some ways, it reminds me of an early Linda Howard without the angst or one of Nora Roberts fun romances with a ton of humor. It’s just GOOD. Fun, flirty, quirky, laugh-out-loud humorous and sweet without being sugary. For a genuinely pleasurable read with characters you’ll remember, pick up “Practice Makes Perfect” by Julie James.
