Review: Just The Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James

Just the Sexiest Man Alive (Berkley Sensation)Publication Date: October 7, 2008
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pages: 296
My Rating:

Book Summary: (Goodreads) Cool. Calm. Collected. 
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-fianc√©. 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. 
Confident. Famous. Irresistible. 
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 that she may just be his perfect match.

My Thoughts: This book was so cute, heck even the cover is cute and draws you in. Who wouldn't want to read this. The story line is very good. I have read a lot and I have to say, I don't think I have yet to read a book with the male being a celebrity. I loved how Taylor wasn't under his charm, even though in the book he was the "Jason Andrews". It just didnt faze her, which made him all the more attracted to her. His usual games didn't work on her and made her want to run more. Jason was so used to getting whatever he wanted, when he wanted and Taylor wasn't having it. She was attracted, but she had learned her lesson from past experiances.

The romance in the book was clean. This was the type of love story you could enjoy on a rainy afternoon with no where to go but to escape into fantasy land. The writer does a great job in the chemistry department. The book stays fresh as you read it, so you aren't bogged down reading over and over the characters same thoughts. There are many other characters in the book that keep it intestesting, but not too many to where you are confused. This is an all around good read!
