A fabulously fun, romantic comedy from a dynamic new talent.
Nothing fazes Taylor Donovan - not in the courtroom and not in her personal life. So when she’s assigned to coach People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for his role in the next big legal drama, she refuses to fall for the Hollywood heartthrob’s charms. Even if he is the Jason Andrews.

This standalone novel is not as good Julie James FBI series but it's likeable. It's good listen if you're on a road trip and need something light.
mainly read romances and books for a book club that take me all over the map.
It was a fun and interesting romp through the world of celebrity and how a spoiled celebrity might meet and fall in love with someone not in the public eye. The sweetness of the relationship between Taylor and Jason and the way they keep each other (and us) laughing makes for a very touching romance.
I loved the way Julie James orchestrated the first meeting between Taylor and Jason. His shock and unbelief at her reaction to him and the situation in which she left him really drew out the humor.
A good narrator helps bring stories to life and aides the imagination in creating the scene in the mind's eye. Karen White is a good narrator.
Spoiler: Loved the scene at his premier when she tells him she loves him. The kiss on the forehead Jason gives her is an "awwww" moment.
This is a book I've already listened to three times. It has been satisfying every time for the fun and the romance. Little sex and only at the end so if you are looking for a hot or erotic read, this is not for you. However, looking for a really good romantic comedy, this book will more than satisfy.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
I first was introduced to Julie James as the author of the FBI-US Attorney's Series and decided that I enjoyed her enough to purchase Just the Sexiest Man Alive, narrated by Karen White. It did not disappoint. I really enjoy a romantic comedy as a pass-time that is purely for entertainment purposes. Julie is talented, quick-witted,and fun to read.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend because it was well written, funny, heart warming and I couldn't put the book down.
The female lead was strong, independent but still not a total b*
I really think this book would make a great romantic comedy. Seriously one of the better books I've read in awhile.
Yes, is a book that ounces read it can be closed or left.
This story about a women that was a lawyer and a actor was a good plot.
The main character are good
Yes this was a book that I wanted to listen in all sitting because , the anxiety of knowing more and what was going to happen next was amazing. I love this book and I hope others will do too.
Please read this book
While this was as predictable as most chick lit is, it was fantastic! I didnt want to stop
Listening, I even had it on my iPod at the gym!
This book was just ok for me. My favorite chick lit novelists are Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Jennifer Crusie, and Sophie Kinsella, all much better authors and more adept a writing funny contemporary romance novels. This is the authors’ first book, so she may grow into a better author and I may give her another shot down the road. The big problem I had with the book was it was too verbose. I love reading background tidbits about the characters, if it gives me a peek into their true self or helps me understand why they act a certain way. Much of the writing in this book was just frivolous filler. You knew who the characters were after the first couple of chapters, with an additional peek into their psyche scattered here and there; much of the in between was just blather that could have been taken out. I did like the characters and I was glad they got their HOA, but I will not remember them after a few weeks and I will never want to listen to this book again. The narrator did a decent job. I guess where this book is concerned I am ambivalent.
Just boring and slow. Didn't even finish listening to it. The narrator sucked too. I do not reccomend this book, it is a waste of credit, glad I didn't pay for it.
