Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James is a contemporary romance novel. This is a standalone novel, not part of a series.
It’s hard to believe this book came out like 9 years ago. It’s so well written really wouldn’t be able to tell. I must give Julie James kudos for that.
The characters are both smart and sexy but in some places you can’t help but feel they are very stereotypical. I don’t know, it’s hard to explain.
Okay we get it, the female character is supposed to be smart, and independent but she takes it a bit just too far for my liking in some parts.
No matter what Julie James book you read, you are always going to get impeccable writing. She’s very skilled at what she does. This book is no different.
The story was cute and even funny at parts.
It’s a romance novel for business executives. Most people that read romance novels tend to subconsciously put ourselves as the main characters in the book.
You can’t really do that with a Julie James book. Most people aren’t high powered professionals making 6 figure a year salaries. We just can’t relate. It doesn’t mean it isn’t a good story, it just makes it harder to relate to the characters.
Overall I rate the story a 9 out of 10. It was well written and made me smile. What more could I ask for? 🙂
