To say that Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson do not get along would be an understatement, both of them are senior associates at one of Chicago's most prestigious law firms and have been at war with each other for nearly 8 years. Payton thinks J.D. is a spoiled, rich boy who got ahead in life thanks to his family's name and fortune, while J.D. thinks Payton is an uptight, tree-hugging feminist; and while they might be a little right about each other, they are a lot wrong.
When just a few weeks before they get to be made partners of the firm Payton and J.D. find themselves working together to lure in an important new client, everything can happen.
I've to say this is a very funny book, I didn't quite expect it to be so - even after reading Julie James' first book Just the Sexiest Man Alive - but I was happily surprised. Actually, at times it reads almost like an romantic comedy with a bit of old-Hollywood flair, and I mean that in the best sense.
The story is fast paced and it was very entertaining to see J.D. and Payton battle it out for the win and even act silly a time or two and, through it all, I liked them both.
