Review: "Just the Sexiest Man Alive" by Julie James

After Julie James visited the blog back in September, I knew I wanted to read one of her books. So, I got my hands on a copy of her first book, Just the Sexiest Man Alive. Here’s the book blurb:


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. . .

I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. The characters were both strong and well-developed. They played off each other in a way that made me want to keep reading their story. I actually kept visualizing the story as if it was a movie, which I never do. I found the whole plot of the story fun, with enough twists to keep it interesting and fresh. The secondary characters supported the story without taking over.

All in all, I recommend Just the Sexiest Man Alive. And I look forward to reading more from Julie James. And for those who want to know more about her writing, check out our interview with her here or come back tomorrow for an all new interview and a look at her newest release, Something About You.
