Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson are both eight year
associates at one of the best law firms in Chicago. They've
been quietly sparring for most of those eight years even
though the original reason for the teasing and tormenting
seems to be lost in the distant past. J.D. and Payton are
both in the litigation department, they're both brilliant
legal minds with stellar track records, and they both hate
to lose. But they're also very different. Payton's single
mom raised her to be a rebel for liberal causes, while J.D.
comes from a more conservative and financially well-
established lineage. But as they edge closer to the
deadline for the announcement of the new partners, their
competitiveness starts to careen a bit out of control.
While courting an important new client as a team their boss
gives them some bad news, only one of them can be made
partner and the other will be encouraged to seek employment
elsewhere. And just as this bomb is dropped the pair, they
begin to realize their bickering might have been more about
flirting than being angry. Now Payton and J.D. have to
decide if they want to stake their personal and
professional futures on the feelings they have that they
might be better together than apart. Can love really
Charismatic characters, witty banter, and a sweetly
developed romantic relationship make PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT
from the crowd. The slow realization of their true feelings
and the secret that J.D.'s been keeping for the past eight
years make the end even more satisfying.
Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson are lawyers who know the
meaning of objection. A feminist to the bone, Payton has
fought hard to succeed in a profession dominated by men.
Born wealthy, privileged, and cocky, J.D. has fought hard
to ignore her. Face to face, they’re perfectly civil. They
have to be. For eight years they’ve kept a safe distance
and tolerated each other as co-workers for one reason only:
to make partner at the firm.
But all bets are off when they’re asked to join forces on a
major case. At first apprehensive, they begin to appreciate
each other’s dedication to the law—and the sparks between
them quickly turn into attraction. But the increasingly hot
connection doesn’t last long when they discover that only
one of them will be named partner. Now it’s an all out war.
And the battle between the sexes is bound to make these
lawyers hot under the collar . . .
