Goodreads Summary:
No woman could resist him—except the one he wanted most...

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-fiancĂ©. 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 she may just be his perfect match.

My Opinion
It's easy to fall in love with Julie's books. This is the third book of hers that I've read and I find myself fully entertained by it. It's also a fun read and that alone is the reason why you should pick up a book if you like contemporary romance and like reading about lawyers (and Hollywood actor).

Just The Sexiest Man Alive is about Taylor, a lawyer, who was tasked with coaching Hollywood actor, Andrew, for his upcoming thriller. He was supposed to arrive at her office but ended up missing their appointment without any notice. She got really angry when she found out from the news that he was actually enjoying himself somewhere! Although it was a pretty predictable storyline, I find myself charmed by the story and by Taylor's attitude. I was laughing my head off at the way Taylor was "cross-examining" Andrew in the mock court room. How will the two of them progress? Will Taylor offer to coach Andrew after he refused to turn up for the first appointment? Read Just The Sexiest Man Alive to find out!


  • "Why me? Really, Jason. Why me?"
    Hmm... his first name again. This was indeed progress. Moving in, Jason gazed down at her with a devilish smile.
    "What can I say, Ms. Donovan? ... You intrigue me."
    It did the trick.

  • "What on earth have you done to him? Kate asked, taking in the limo outside.
    "Oh, you know, slammed a few doors in his face, hung up on him a couple of times, tossed around a slew of insults."
    Kate nodded. "Ah, the usual stuff."

  • "I realized that the one person who could break my heart is the only one who should have it."
