New York Times bestselling author Julie James’s debut novel—a dazzling romance about one of Hollywood's biggest movie stars and the woman who refuses to let him capture her heart...

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 next big legal drama, she refuses to fall for the Hollywood heartthrob’s charms.

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 she may just be his perfect match...


  • not too shabby for a first novel!

    Though this is James’ first novel (I think), it is the last of hers I’ve read (until she publishes more - can’t wait!). Her writing is much, MUCH better than that of most of the bestselling contemporary fiction novels out there. Just the Sexiest Man Alive is less polished, a little more unrefined, than her later books, but it’s still pretty good. I can’t figure out why Julie James is not more popular! Spunky characters, witty dialogue, and hilarious, laugh-out-loud antics in each of her books - not to mention great, relatable characters who really seem like actual people instead of the two-dimensional stand-ins common in many other books these days. In case anyone’s looking for a recommendation, A Lot Like Love is probably my favorite, and It Happened One Wedding is another stand-out, too!

    I thought it was a great read. Made me laugh and smile and want to scream at all the same time. I love her books!
  • Loved Every Second....

    Usually I fall out of romance stories at the end when the dominant guy doesn't apologize but the strong turned submissive heroine still agrees to spend the rest of her life with him. In this book both hero and heroine were equally arrogant and strong. It was funny, and dreamy and I wish there was more.

    This book is hilarious! I've read this book no less than 10 times. If you're looking for a great romance with some sarcasm thrown in then this book is for you. Julie James is an awesome writer.

    It was such an absorbing read!! A book had never made me laugh so many times! I would definitely read this one again, and I don't often read a book more than once!

    It was alright. You kinda figure out in the beginning what's going to happen. Took me a while to read because it seemed like it just dragged on. Couldn't really get that into it.
