Penguin Putnam
From the New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Wedding comes a novel about a man and a woman whose summer is about to get very, very hot...

Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn't mean she's opposed to casual dating—just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister's case, she's as determined to win as ever—even if that means teaming up with Ford...

Investigative journalist Ford Dixon is bent on finding the man who got his sister pregnant and left her high and dry. He's willing to partner with Victoria, despite the fact that the beautiful brunette gets under his skin like no other woman. He might not be looking to settle down, but there's no denying the scorching attraction between them. Still, the more time he spends with Victoria, the more he realizes that the one woman as skeptical about love as he is might be the only woman he could really fall for...

I've been binge-reading Julie James. It started with Love Irresistibly, and I was very much looking forward to reading about Brooke Parker's pal Ford Dixon in Suddenly One Summer.

Sadly, he wasn't nearly as interesting in this book. The plot and characters who had been so dynamic in Love Irresistibly were flat.

I got the clear sense that her heart wasn't in the book ~ she had ground it out to meet a publisher's deadline. I noticed in the comments about the author on the back cover that she now has two kids. Maybe she was too exhausted to give this book the sizzle of her other books.

And, I probably would have loved the book if it had been my first experience with Julie James. Her other books that I have read are better.
