Romance Contemporary

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 conquer all?

Charismatic characters, witty banter, and a sweetly developed romantic relationship make PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT stand out 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.

SUMMARY

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 . . .
