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 have kept a safe distance and tolerated each other as coworkers 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. Though apprehensive at first, 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 does not 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...

My current reading list has consisted of mostly dystopian/paranormal books and this was such a nice getaway. Julie James has the best method of blending together humor and romance without it getting overly cheesy. I found myself on more than one occasion busting out laughing and just giggling away at this book. It was the perfect light read to break up the monotony of my somber reading list!
I absolutely love this story -the characters, the whit, the beginning, the ending and everything in between. I read this book a few years ago and have easily reread or listened to it at least 20 times since. JD was my very first BB! very few have compared since. if I had to critique it in anyway I would love for Julie James to rerelease this with current info -- not that I don't like it now - but I would love this story to connect with new readers/younger readers and it would need to be changed up from the early Oprah days. Thank you Julie for helping me love to read again!
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
This story is one of the best in the series. Lots of humor and quick thinking.
Payton, knows how to laugh off a bad situation!
court room, when heel breaks...fast quick thinking and humor. When Payton has to give up
dairy for a month.
Let the better Lawyer win.
Julie James and Karen White make a great team. Ms White knows how to read Ms James work so well. You will get all the books in this series. These are romances with a legal background, but still romance stories.
The book starts fine, but falls apart in the middle when the main characters start acting like children. The book comes back together, but it doesn't make up for the implausible events earlier in the book.
Really loved the story and love the author. The only thing that bothered me was the accent of the character Jasper. Not everyone from Florida has an accent. Especially people who live in Palm Beach. The voice sounded like Foghorn Leghorn!
I'm usually a big fan of this author but this book was so slow and some of it I found juvenile! Most people in a work place do not act immature like these two! The ending was good but the first 3/4 of the book not good!
Simply perfect. I love Julie James. Her humor is so much like mine. Nobody does fast, witty and oh so smart banter like her. Kudos!!
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
This story pits two lawyers against each other, competing for a partnership in their firm. It's exceptionally well written with characters you care for, a story line that moves along and has witty repartee. I would have given it 5 stars but I personally don't care for a story line that has a lot of conflict in it. This is a PG version of Julie James, not the steamy side you see in her FBI series. I highly recommend it.
