Publisher's Summary

A fabulously fun, romantic comedy from a dynamic new talent.

Nothing fazes Taylor Donovan - not in the courtroom and not in her personal life. So when she’s assigned to coach People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for his role in the next big legal drama, she refuses to fall for the Hollywood heartthrob’s charms. Even if he is the Jason Andrews.

Critic Reviews

“[James'] familiarity with both the law and the film industry lends credibility to this fast-moving, contemporary romantic comedy between two strong-willed characters.” (Booklist)

“Even in the improbable world of Hollywood's top actors, Julie James introduces believable characters with real motivations behind their actions. With two witty and charming main characters, the dialogue is sure to keep the reader entertained.” (Fresh Fiction)

“In her debut novel, James shakes up the world of lawyers and celebrity romance, producing a captivating, beautifully written story. The fireworks between the characters fuel the plot and will keep readers flipping the pages at a dizzying pace.” (RT Book Reviews)

The story is better than the title..

It's not that deep, but it was light, entertaining and less cheesy than most chick lit. The male character was a little one-note, but the female lead was sarcastic and kind of funny.

I found the narrator a little irritating in the beginning, but got used to her and thought she relaxed as the story went on. Generally enjoyable!

Cute...

I wouldn't say this is the best book I've listened to, but it was cute and funny. I think the character development was good and the story was well written, but it just didn't have the WOW factor of novels by the greats like Susan Elizabeth Phillips or Nora Roberts. But I will definitely try future novels by Ms. James. I think she has the potential to evolve her craft into something really special. NOT a waste of a credit. Narration was good as well.

Cute, Funny Romance

This was an enjoyable romance with a lot of funny moments. I wasn't super crazy about the main guy - he was a spoiled Hollywood star and was almost too spoiled to be likable, but I loved the main girl; she was smart, hilarious and didn't take any crap from the guy. I'd recommend the book if you want something light and funny. I also really liked the narrator. This is the first time I've listened to a book read by her and I'd definitely listen to another one.

Charming

This was a sweet romance. Yes it was a bit predictable, however it was charming. It is not as cleverly written as Molly Harper or Janet Evanovich but it did have a few places that made me laugh. All in all it was a fun romance story, if your looking for something without a lot of sex or offensive language I would recommend it!

Another easy listen

The start was a little slow but once the story picked up, it is super fun. The main characters have a lot of chemistry, the story is interesting enough, and enjoyable. I liked it and enjoyed the hook up scenes. Super fun. Perfect for unwinding after a LONG week. This is beach read worthy!

A good old fashioned rom-com book.

There was no need for graphic sex in this book. They didn't fall madly in love within a minute of meeting each other. It was a good old fashioned romance with a build up to it. The characters were likeable, and the story wasn't heavy handed. It was a fun and easy beach read!

My only complaint would be that sometimes the narrator seemed a little breathy.

Clever and A Fun Read

What did you like best about Just the Sexiest Man Alive? What did you like least?

The Story was cute...but character development was lacking

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The thought that a super star actor has the same thoughts and insecurities as we do......but for me the draw of a super star fantasy has never done it for me

What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

She was good. Can't think of anything negative

Could you see Just the Sexiest Man Alive being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No just a quick fun not too complicated read.

Read or listen, love it either way.

Where does Just the Sexiest Man Alive rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Definitely one of my favorites to listen to. Perfect for background noise when I am working on the computer.

What other book might you compare Just the Sexiest Man Alive to and why?

Julie James first in her FBI series Something About You. Funny dialog and strong female lead with an even stronger male lead.

Have you listened to any of Karen White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was the first one I listened to but have now heard Something About You. Waiting for next credit so I can download A Lot Like Love.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh for sure.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoy reading but can't read all the time. With audiobooks I can still enjoy my favorite stories and get my work done.

Better than I thought

I always judge a book by its cover and generally stay away from covers or titles like this but the blurb really got me and so I though I’d give it a shot and let me tell you I was not disappointed this book is sassy and cute the ending was maybe a bit abrupt but other than that no complaints. Also the narrator was brilliant!

So long story short never judge a book by its cover!!!

Not the sexiest writing but good story

It's descriptively drawn out storyline but ok to listen to or read to get through a long journey.
