—(Coffee Time Romance, Oct 2008) "Chicagoan Taylor Donovan 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, in spite of their obvious and mutual physical attraction, 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 between two strong- willed characters."

“Ms. James tackles what happens to a person when being told NO becomes something of the past, the obstacles so many stars face with trying to sort out who really cares for them and who is only using them for their own 15 minutes of fame, and how to stay grounded and somewhat normal when the rest of the world puts you on a pedestal with wit, humor and plenty of NO from the heroine. The one-liners will keep you laughing all the way through this book.”
