Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James

Behind closed doors, they're laying down the law.

When it comes to the laws of attraction...

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: to make partner at the firm.

There are no rules...

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.

Ahhh, I love this book! Let me just get that out of the away.

I was in love with JD from the start. More importantly, I was in love with the story of JD and Payton from the very beginning. There's nothing like a good ole man vs woman, love-hate relationship to make me smile like an idiot when when it starts getting romantic and all hot. Oh, lordy, lordy. Trust me, it wasn't just Payton who thought that JD was hot in jeans. 

JJ scored another winner for me with the easy banter in this fun read. Who needs smut when books like these still exist, right? And the twist at the end was really unexpected. It's always a treat when at a time when some stories get predictable, there are still some select ones that manages to pull a surprise. Just how I like my standalones!

And one more thing: JJ agreed with me that JD stands for Just Delish. So there.

Final verdict: 9/10. Great read.
