Just the Sexiest Man Alive
A fabulously fun, romantic comedy from a dynamic new talent.
Nothing fazes Taylor Donovannot 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.
Okay, time for some ‘True Confessions’. Is there any woman alive who hasn’t dreamed of landing the absolute sexiest Hollywood star? Fess up! We’ve all dreamed it. It may have been when we were younger, but we’ve still all dreamed of Mel Gibson, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Robert Redford, etc. But really, could we make it past their egos? Their unreal lives? The paparazzi? In “Just the Sexiest Man Alive”, Julie James spins a tale of that dream...more
With this flood of contemporary/suspense/thriller/paranormal romance hybrids out there it was refreshing stumbling upon a "straight" contemporary. They come rare these days, especially if you’re looking for a fresh and frolicking book that manages to deliver from beginning to end.
I loved the feel and the style of it. It was quirky, a little eccentric, hilarious, fast-paced, sarcastic, yet serious and...more
JTSMA is about a rather full-of-herself lawyer, Taylor Donovan, who meets someone ten times worse. While I found Taylor's personality rather contrived, Jason Andrews, the said sexiest male in this book, was too much of a jerk to be a romance hero, even one in a romantic comedy. For most part of the book, Jason displays the kind of spoilt...more
While James does a great job of portraying the chemistry, love, and compatibility of the two completely different characters, I still remain unconvinced about a couple li...more
A romantic story at it's best. EVERYTHING is so cute, funny, heartbreaking and romantic in this book. The stubborn lawyer Taylor Donovan and the charming, so spoiled, movie star Jason Andrews are two wonderful characters. I love them, I love the book, I love ....
"Does anyone ever say ‘no’ to you?" she asked him resignedly.
"No. But if it makes you feel any better, you try a lot harder than anyone else. So we have a deal?"
Jason William Bradley Andrews is the 3x Sexiest Man Alive and reigning Hollywood heartthrob. He also happens to be from Missouri with a self-taught passion for architecture. Are you rolling your eyes yet? I was, especially after some early Pride and Prejud...more
Taylor has been sent to LA to try a $30 million law suit involving the EEOC. Her new boss has also given her a small assignment on the side. She must work with actor Jason Andrews to help him prepare for his upcoming roll in a legal thriller.

Beteweh, nih buku sering banget diaku - aku sama dia yang mengaku seksiy dan (katanya) sih sikspeksnya akan kaming suun dalam beberapa waktu dekat. Demi si-seksiy-sikspeks-kaming-suun, review ini saia buat dengan sejujur - jujurnya. Siapa tau abis ini dia bakalan jera ngaku seksiy atau malah menggila :))
Kalau ngeliat banyak bener yang kasih lima ma empat bintang, selain aku juga sudah baca A Lot Like Love yang oke itu, jadinya kan punya ekspekstasi sama ini....more
Excellent new narrator for me, she portrayed everyone perfectly for my ears, even better than perfect as I ended up enjoying this book even more in audio than I did in print. I love when that happens!
This is a very fun listen, every young girls dream. Meet a movie star through whatever circumstances and end up being "the one" for him.
I thought Jason was too arrogant right at the end when I read the book. But the audio made me see him differently, he'd finally given his...more
The main characters too ,of course, had a TON of flaws.
Jason-the sexiest man alive-the hottest movie star-had an ego exceeding the size of Texas.He simply could not picture that any ordinary mortal would not fall to his feet and start worshipping him.Cocky,too full of himself,arrogant,rude.... you would want to throw someth...more
Oh well. Glad others enjoyed it! :-) Not for me, though.
It was a fun to read! It is not in my normal genre. Nevertheless, I needed a ‘J’ book to meet my Master Reader. However, this book is highly enjoyable, very romantic, cute, funny, witty and highly entertaining.
Taylor Donovan, a career driven, workaholic lawyer is sent by her Chicago office to LA. She is there to head a sexual harassment suit against one of their clients, because she is "the best". She is also just getting over the pain of walking into her drop dead gorgeous fiances' office and catching him doing it doggie style on his desk with his assistant ( or maybe she was a student teacher?)
Her work keeps her ext...more

I LOVED IT!
Julie James rocked my world!!
First, the characters. Taylor was a stunning heroine. She's a lawyer, feminist, fearless, smart mouth, and definitely a woman who knows how to fight with a real man. The only thing I didn't like was her problem in trusting a man, especially when it comes to the right man.
As for the hero, Jason Andrews, Hollywood bigest actor, the sexiest man alive. Whohooo... Incredibly arrogant alpha male. There was a quote from this book from Jeremy, Jaso...more
Taylor je právnička tělem i duší, svou práci nadevše miluje a od chvíle, kdy načapala svého snoubence s jinou, je také vším, co zná. Její práce ji zavede i do L.A., kde pracuje na případě sexuálního harašení na pracovišti. Kromě toho však dostane nový, speciální, úk...more
"Just The Sexiest Man Alive" is one of my favorite novels written by Julie James!
Taylor our heroine is a Chicago Lawyer,who's sent to Las Angeles to take on a lawsuit. Jason the hero of the novel,is "The Sexiest Man Alive",his role is being a snooty movie star,thinking all woman can't wait to drop their panties anywhere for him. In this story,Taylor puts the stop to his major ego. I Loved it!
Taylor proves to Jason she won't drop to her knees and devour ove...more
My two stars for the book is entirely Jason Andrews' fault. No matter what he does, I can't like him. The douchiest character I've ever found in a romance novel, it is him. (But it really is a testament to Ms. James' skill for charcterization for being able to come up with a guy I want to take by neck and strangle so...more
Whoa, nelly. Where did this Jason guy come from?? Arrogant Hill? I hated him from then on and I thought Jason would join Ted Beaudine (of SEP's Call Me Irresistible) in my most hated heroes list. But he redeemed himself as the story progressed and I can't help but to fall in love with the book.
Julie James's books were in my T...more
I seriously detest love triangles, the blurb saw conveniently deceptive as no this fact. Is an infuriating concept and i have little patience to read a story i when i know not just how it turns o...more
Four stars for the first two thirds, but the last one pulls it down to more like 2.5 stars.
Julie James is a master at writing witty banter and sarcastic dialogues ! This was an amazing read, I must have read this book more than 10 times by now.
Plot – Our hero, Jason Andrews is used to having women fall at his feet. He has to act as a lawyer in his new movie, for which he seeks help from a law firm who sends in Taylor Donovan to train him .When Taylor Donovan gives him the cold shoulder, he’s thrown for a loop. She’s unlike any other woman he’s...more
I wish I knew about you sooner but I guess it is much better to be later rather than never. The moment I read ~Tina~'s review on Something About You (FBI / US Attorney #1) and Patrica's review on this book, I was instantly attracted to you. But reading JTSMA was the one that did it because I was already in love with you even before halfway through the book.
I loved the world and characters you created. I love Taylor and Jason who are like two sides of the same coin. Taylor's confident,...more
I love the heroine, Taylor Donovan is smart and pretty.
and something wrong with this Indonesia cover
her hair color is totally different with this book description
and I must ignore this cover while reading the story, little annoying (for me)
bab awal-awal, aku tidak begitu suka dengan Jason Andrews yang digambarkan lebih mementingkan dirinya sendiri daripada orang lain.
menjelang bab akhir, aku mulai suka JA yang digambarkan mulai "peduli" dengan Taylor.
dan bagusnya lagi.... Taylor tidak...more
