Mrs Giggles reviews Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James

Honestly, I often get quite uncomfortable at times reading Practice Makes Perfect, because if there is one thing Ms James did very well here, it's to introduce enough realism here to show how tough it can be for a woman to break into the old boys network. Payton has to work extra hard to be seen as an equal to JD, and all it takes is one simple exchange between JD and the boss to destroy the careful professional image she had cultivated with her colleagues and peers. I get uncomfortable because I'm convinced that poor Payton will lose in the end and has to settle for a hot boyfriend as a consolation prize. As it turns out, oh, who am I kidding? Julie James doesn't get Payton to compromise like that. The ending is a very nice one that puts a smile to my smile because both Julie and Payton get a happy ending with both their dignities intact.
