Book ~ "Just the Sexiest Man Alive" (2008) Julie James

From Amazon ~ Chicagoan Taylor is driven to succeed, and her track record in defending corporate clients against sexual-harassment lawsuits is unsurpassed. On loan to her firm’s Los Angeles office, she reluctantly agrees to coach big-name actor and sexy heartthrob Jason Andrews for his upcoming role as a lawyer. His attitude irks her, while her insistence on maintaining a professional distance intrigues him. James herself is a practicing attorney in both Chicago and L.A., and her familiarity with both the law and the film industry lends credibility to this fast-moving, contemporary romantic comedy.

I was looking for something light and mindless to read.

The story was surprisingly good, as was the writing.

And I was happy to see that Taylor didn't act like an idiot whenever she was with Jason. She's a successful lawyer and acted accordingly.

Since it is set in LA, it was fun to see the celebrity references.

You'd also like this author's second book - Practice Makes Perfect. Another smart heroine with witty banter thrown in - a good mix if I do say so myself. :P
