Getting to know the main characters is easy to do in this delightful and fast-moving romance. They are easy to like and empathize with. Although the story could have been one about one-upmanship, it instead develops into a surprisingly heartwarming tale of love.

Associates at the same firm, lawyers Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson have never gotten along. So when they learn they'll be working together on a case, they're unhappy. The real shock comes when they find that only one will make partner, and the other will be out of a job.

When Payton accidentally causes J.D. embarrassment, he retaliates -- and war is declared. Yet strangely, the call to arms doesn't last. J.D. discovers there's more to his feelings of animosity toward Payton and shocks her by starting to treat her, well, nicely. But can this new relationship survive the partnership dilemma? (BERKLEY SENSATION, Mar., 304 pp., $7.99)

Practice Makes Perfect

Submitted by Robin in PA on November 11, 2012 - 6:16pm.

Lawyers Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson have worked as Associates in the same law firm for eight years. And for eight years they've been competitive rivals, one always trying to out do the other. Now their boss has asked them to work together to land a big account. He's also told them that both are up for a partnership with the firm, but only one of them will be named partner.

This was a quick read with witty dialogue. I enjoyed this book so much more than this author's previous book. There are several funny scenes in this book, one that made me laugh out loud. My rating: 4 Stars.
