Just the Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James (2008)

SINGLE TITLE: Contemporary romance
SETTING: Contemporary US
HEROINE: early thirties and works as a lawyer

Nothing fazes Taylor Donovan. In the courtroom she never lets the opposition see her sweat. In her personal life, she never lets any man rattle her–not even her cheating ex-fiancĂ©. So when she’s assigned to coach People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for his role in his next big legal thriller, she refuses to fall for the Hollywood heartthrob’s charms. Even if he is the Jason Andrews.

Jason Andrews is used to having women fall at his feet. When Taylor Donovan gives him the cold shoulder, he’s thrown for a loop. She’s unlike any other woman he’s ever met: uninterested in the limelight, seemingly immune to his advances, and shockingly capable of saying no to him. She’s the perfect challenge. And the more she rejects him, the more he begins to realize that she may just be his perfect match. . .

Mrs Giggles reviews Just The Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James

Now, where do I start? Okay, let's start with Taylor. She's sharp, funny, and very good at her job, a combination of traits very rare in heroines in this genre. I love how this story allows Taylor to have both her love and career in the end, just as I adore how Taylor is allowed to have ambitions and the ability to go along with them without having to somehow apologize for not wanting to have babies and such. Also, Taylor doesn't act as if having sex means that she is necessarily married to the man so it's time to panic over whether he loves her. (read more)

The Romance Reader's Mary Benn reviews Just the Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James

Taylor and Jason carry the book, both individually and as a couple. She looks, sounds and acts like a professional and highly ambitious woman of today, complete with a fabulous sense of humor, great girlfriends, reasonably strong self-esteem and occasional gnawing self-doubts. There is nothing coy or heart-wrenching about her refusal to dally with Jason. This makes his final victory all the sweeter. (read more)
