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-fiance. 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.
|Just the Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James|
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Just the Sexiest Man Alive is the last of Julie James' books I had yet to read and it's my least favorite of them all (which isn't saying a lot, since I love the rest of them so much!). That has less to do with the actual story and more to do with the subject matter - a megastar falling genuinely in love with an ordinary woman.
While James does a great job of portraying the chemistry, love, and compatibility of the two completely different characters, I still remain unconvinced about a couple like this making it in real life.
That aside, Just the Sexiest Man Alive is a sweet, romantic, and funny romance featuring two hard-headed and stubborn individuals that I really, really enjoyed reading. Taylor is the perfect combination of professional and sassy while Jason is simply delicious. I adored watching him fret over earning Taylor's approval, trust, and eventually, love. He's like a rich kid who's suddenly hit with the reality that the world does not, in fact, revolve around him, and I do believe I found his pouty-I-can't-believe-I'm-not-getting-my-way attitude a lot more hotter than his sexy-and-I-know-it demeanor.
If you enjoy a light and fun romance every once in a while and can turn off your brain long enough not to nitpick, Just the Sexiest Man Alive is the perfect book for you. It's certainly one of the cutest romances I've read in a while!
