Taylor Donovan takes her job as a sexual harassment lawyer
seriously, working evenings and weekends so she can make
partner at her Chicago law firm. When she's sent to Los
Angeles as the lead defense attorney for a long trial, she
expects to concentrate on her work and not have anything to
do with the Hollywood hoopla. Her boss has other plans for
her when a celebrity client wants to shadow a real trial
lawyer to prepare for an acting role. Is it a coincidence
that the recently voted "Sexiest Man Alive" is paired with
one of the firms few female lawyers? Probably not, but
Taylor must do her best to bear her additional burden, or
risk offending her boss. Spending time relaxing and having
fun with a guy just isn't on her career agenda.
In addition to being sexy and talented, Jason Andrews is
one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood. He's used to
every person responding to his needs and rearranging their
schedules to accommodate his whims. When the lawyer who is
supposed to prepare him for his next role turns out to be
serious, sarcastic and not at all impressed by his obvious
importance, Jason is surprised and upset, but intrigued.
Suddenly he can't seem to get enough of this
straightforward woman who doesn't particularly want to
spend time with him, and definitely doesn't want to join
him in the media spotlight that's his daily life. Can Jason
make Taylor see that he has more to offer her than being
JUST THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE?
Even in the improbable world of Hollywood's top actors,
Julie James introduces believable characters with
real motivations behind their actions. With two witty and
charming main characters, the dialogue is sure to keep the
reader entertained. The sexual harassment case that Taylor
is defending, along with the antics of the legal
secretaries at her office, provides the perfect
counterbalance for her developing relationship with a major
celebrity. While almost any woman would be swept off her
feet by the fame and wealth of a Hollywood star, Taylor
isn't convinced by Jason's obvious charms, which makes
reading the story of their romance even more enjoyable!
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-
fiancé. 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. . .
