my rating It deserves it if I m being honest.I needed to read a book exactly like this I wanted funny, easy going and sexy I got it I find there are times when I just want to escape all the classics, all the vampires, werewolves, fairies and whatever else we re trending with now in the supernatural world, and especially all the Diana Gabaldon you know I love her really but 1,300 effing pagesBefore I picked up this book, I had reached the stage where re reading Bridget Jones s Diary sounded like the best kind of idea and then I discovered Julie James.It s chick lit romance I know, I know and the ratings of all her books are 4 averages, not to mention the large amount of dazzling reviews So I decided to do what every sane person would do and buy three of them in one go from ebay Yeah, I m joking, if I had half a brain I d try out one first right Well, looks like the gamble might have paid off This book delivered everything I was hoping to just curl up and relax with I devoured the story and I loved every character, it was neither lacking in plot nor difficult to wrap my head around It was just an all round pleasurable read.I wanted to give it 5 stars I still kind of want to roll my mouse up and highlight that last star I just I ve come to reserve my 5 star ratings for books that challenge my beliefs, make me think, shock me you get the idea I loved this book, but did it change my views of the world No Okay, I know that Darkfever doesn t exactly contain some hidden message about the state of humanity but, come onBarronsThere are exceptions to every rule So, yeah, this book was hilarious No seriously, it was funny enough to give Louise Rennison a run for her money There s this one part that I m dying to comment on that made me laugh out loud in fact, I m here laughing just thinking about it Yes, that s right, I m sat here typing and laughing to myself it s only a matter of time before they turn up with a straight jacket What s with the tangents today Back to what I was saying, there are some extremely funny moments Julie James creates easily imaginable situations and people so that when she delivers her humour the reader can just imagine it happening.As for the characters, well, Payton is lovable and I recognised something of myself in her because she s a modern independent woman and a feminist, she s ambitious and she s a lawyer well, I did take a Law A level in sixth form but she also wants a man who s a bit of a challenge A force to be reckoned with wants something to reckon with it, not a pushover There s a few mild political issues tackled in the story as Payton s mother is a really hardcore feminist and in your face vegan Payton recognises the importance of feminism but that some extremes are unnecessary and cross the line between pro woman and anti man I think it s fair to say I liked her.The sexual tension between Payton and J.D was really hot, the romantic aspect worked well and thank you so much Ms James no insta love In fact, at the start of the book they pretty much hated each other well, in the way two hot lawyers competing for the same job position hate each other i.e I hate you so much I want to rip your clothes off By the way, J.D is hot He s got the whole naughty thing going on without being a complete ass, he made me laugh, he wears a suit sigh and he has short hair, no fangs and isn t called Raphael, Vishous or Angel Finally The sex scenes are not graphic but neither are they a fade to black scenario Sometimes I actually find leaving something to the imagination can be a good thing That being said, I just finished Julie James other novel, Something About You, and it seems she s decided to get just a tad dirtier with that one view spoiler He goes down on her on the stairs hide spoiler It was so very very enjoyable and I look forward to readingbooks by Julie James There s something about love hate banter that really rings my bell Highly recommended to anyone looking for a lighter kind of read I feel like I read a completely different book than everyone else I was promised a lighthearted, entertaining romance with lots of laughs So why am I so annoyed right now I got nearly 80 pages in, and J.D., the male lead, has acted like a hardcore meninist style misogynist the entire time He is the definition of uber entitled white male privilege who, in his own words, doesn t believe in privilege Hard pass Payton, the female lead, is a little better At first But the fact that she s a fe I feel like I read a completely different book than everyone else I was promised a lighthearted, entertaining romance with lots of laughs So why am I so annoyed right now I got nearly 80 pages in, and J.D., the male lead, has acted like a hardcore meninist style misogynist the entire time He is the definition of uber entitled white male privilege who, in his own words, doesn t believe in privilege Hard pass Payton, the female lead, is a little better At first But the fact that she s a female lawyer who defends companies when they get sued for gender discrimination and yet claims to be a feminist and somehow isn t conflicted about her job isn t something I can get over Hard pass Oh, and did I mention that J.D defends large corporations in civil suits And that the two of them are getting paired up to defend a company in what s going to be the largest civil suit of gender discrimination ever So, soulless one dimensional corporate lawyers who carefor their careers, making money and the written law than they do real justice, other people s lives, and any sort of moral right and wrong Hard pass Unless these two take a good, long look at themselves, turn into actual likable characters, and sabotage this lawsuit Only if someone tells me that happens will I pick

and sigh Except when I was her age, I still thought boys looked like Ken dolls down there, so I m sure she s smiling about puppies or somethingBut that s beside the point Little Rapunzel looks like I

when I need something quick to munch on Something that I already know is going to make me smile and sigh Except when I was her age, I still thought boys looked like Ken dolls down there, so I m sure she s smiling about puppies or somethingBut that s beside the point Little Rapunzel looks like I felt after reading this Happy, content, and maybe a bit starry eyed.And let s face it, when it comes to romance, most of the time I look like this But this story Just the Sexiest Man Alive, are the two books that I pick up every few years and read just because.Are they really both 5 star books I honestly have no idea at this point But they fill a Mighty Need in my belly for a bit of fluffy humorous romance every now and then.Practice Makes Perfect doesn t have much in the way of sex one or two scenes towards the end , but I actually prefer it that way I tend to skim over the sexytimes in most books nowadays, anyway Because if they aren t done to perfection they have a tendency to gross me out with all the talk of juices and scents Sorry, that s just not what I personally want to read about Reading about someone licking and tasting another person has the same effect on my vagina as spreading my legs under one of those industrial strength hand dryers they have at rest stops Not only does it not make my panties moist, it s like I get early onset menopause.My reaction to reading about smelly dripping bodily fluids Ok, so in that sense, these books are quite perfect for me But that s not the only reason I enjoy them Because if all I wanted was less Sweaty Slip n Slide, I could just avoid romance entirely.Alas, no.I still have emotional needs that must be met And I ve been married waaay too long to be under the illusion that my husband is going to swoop in and fill that role I ain t even mad, baby We ve been staring at each other for too many years to get butterflies in our tummies Besides, I think that the fact that you don t make much fun of the way I fart in my sleep, says something about how much you love me.Still I m a woman And as such, I must have at the very least a fantasy life that allows me to get in touch with that gooey nougat in the center of my soul And this book lets me safely fantasize about the kind of love thatwell, you can only find in books.But I could probably find a mushy romance pretty easily So what sets this book apart from the nine bjillion other romances out there that I ve read Is the amazingly hawt JD Well, no Not really I mean, he s great, but in real life he s not my fantasy guy I mean, he s rich, smart, driven, and in great shape.So, yeah Who the hell wants that Well, Payton does, even if she won t admit it She thinks he s nothing but a pompous ass, but, in reality, they could be twins In fact, they re pretty much just different sides of the same coin Even though they have seem to have opposing views on things, they re very similar at their core Naturally, this causes problems At first, they were just pseudo rivals at work Each trying to outdo the other for some imaginary bragging rights But due to a new policy their firm enacted, they suddenly become true rivals in order to win the coveted partnership position.And here s where this book wins me over For me to truly love a romance novel, it has to be funny James just shines when it comes to writing humorous situations dialogue And, yes, it s silly and over the top in instances, but I still laughed at the stuff these two did to each other while trying to win the partnership spot Sure, there are a lot of misunderstandings that complicate matters and lead to problems that could have been easily avoided And if this were a different book, I d be the first one in line to angrily point out that all the drama was stupid, and that these two would never have acted so unprofessionally, etc., blah, blah, blah.But, for some reason, I don t mind the nonsense at all And when they finally get together Be still my fluttery little heartI love this so much One of my favorites Read it immediately Alright, just remember that I warned you that this was an old favorite of mine, so my feelings and opinions might be a bit tainted No, they re not I m probably biased, so take my 5 star rating with a grain of salt.Older much shorter reviews view spoiler I Loved It I loved it This is a great contemporary romance, with some of the funniest scenes and dialogue that I ve read in quite a while Julie James is definitely going onto my list of Favorite Authors 2012 ReviewFinished a re read of this a few hours ago, and I m still smiling sighGod, this is such a cute story hide spoiler
