Review: Suddenly One Summer by Julie James!


Suddenly One Summer (FBI/US Attorney, #6)

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… (less)

Karia’s Review:
4 Stars and some good laughs…
Victoria is funny, witty and full of sarcasm and scepticism.  Her new neighbour Ford is sexy, misunderstood and far from a manwhore.  While there were moments of “Three’s Company” assumptions and jumping to conclusions…it made for some witty banter and funny situations.
Both Victoria and Ford are scarred (yup…you guessed it, this one is on the Freakshow Family shelf).  Each has entered relationships, or non-relationships, with the end-game not being love or marriage.  Sex was fine, just keep emotions and feelings out of it.  Victoria puts all her feeling into fighting for her clients, while Ford invests his energies in righting the wrongs and injustices of their city governance.  
The friends are great, Nicole, Ford’s sister, is a sweety and Will (Victoria’s assistant) is awesome.  I have read a couple of these FBI/US Attorney series books and all are well written and have realistic plots, characters and HEAs.  I would have wanted a bit more sexy time…just a bit more intimacy between these two (maybe after the BBQ or family dinner).  Enjoy!
