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. 


Practice Makes Perfect was a fun, quick read. It is one of those stories where both people obviously like each other but instead of admitting it they fight all the time. It was fun.

Payton and J.D. both work for the same law firm. They are both up for partner, but they both cannot stand the other. Payton is not really sure what started their feud, but she has hated J.D. as long as she can remember. He comes from money and Payton cannot stand that. Sure he might be good looking, but she has worked her butt off to get where she is.

J.D. might have come from money, but he hasn't used it to get where he is. In fact he has always rejected it. He has gotten where he is by working hard. These two was fun to watch. Their little give and takes were fun. Payton would do something and J.D. would retaliate and so she would retaliate back and so on. When the two of them are forced to work together they have to try and put aside their differences, at least for an evening, so they don't jeopardize their partner potential status.

Really working together was not as bad as they thought it would be, but when they quickly find out that only one of them will be named partner things go back to crazy fun again. I really enjoyed watching these two come together and set aside their games. They both care for each other, but can they make it work when only one of them is partner at the firm? What will happen when one of them has to give up what they worked so long and so hard for? A fun, quick read.
