Présentation de l'éditeur

SHE KNOWS BETTER THAN TO SAY “I DO”

After a humiliating end to her engagement, investment banker Sidney Sinclair is done with commitment-phobic men. But when her sister winds up engaged after a whirlwind courtship, Sidney is thrown into close contact with exactly the kind of sexy playboy she wants to avoid—the gorgeous best man. She’s stuck with him, for better or worse, until her sister walks down the aisle, but that doesn’t mean she has to give in to his smooth advances, no matter how tempting they are…

BUT HE MAKES IT HARD TO SAY “I DON’T”

Special agent Vaughn Roberts always gets his man on the job and his woman in bed. So Sidney’s refusal to fall for his charms only makes him more determined to win over the cool and confident redhead. Only what starts out as a battle of wills ends up as a serious play for her heart. Because the one woman who refuses to be caught may be the only one Vaughn can’t live without…

Pas le meilleur de Julie James!
L'histoire de la fille qui prévoit 34 questions pour filtrer mister right...
Des moments drôles, captivants et sympa mais habituée a l'auteur, j'ai été un peu déçue.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Romance With Heart, Class, & Sizzle! 8 mai 2014
Par R. Lane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
It Happened One Wedding felt a little different from Julie James' previous novels. I think there was serious tone that wasn't in the other stories, and it really clicked with me.

Sidney is back in Chicago starting a new job after leaving New York, and a ruined relationship. After discovering her fiancé was cheating on her, Sidney feels she's wasted three years of her life. She should already be married and starting a family, something Sidney really wanted at this point in her life. At thirty-three she doesn't want to waste time on good-time guys, and commitment-phobes. Sidney wants to find a man that wants the same things in life. It's not that she begrudges those men, it's their right to live life as they wish, she just wants nothing to do with them. So when Vaughn makes a pass at her, Sidney brushes off his advances seeing him, knowing exactly the type of man he is:

"For men as attractive as you, this city is one big candy store, filled with so many shiny treats, you couldn't possibly choose just one. So instead, you run around with your obviously healthy ego, sampling as many of the goods as you can get your hands on--simply because you can."

Not my idea of an attractive prospect, and definitely not Sidney's. Vaughn can't believe Sidney would reject him, even though she was spot on in her description of him, he still doesn't like the smug way she nailed him. But seeing as they'll never lay eyes on each other again, oh well, right? Wrong. Just so happens Sidney's sister, Isabelle is marrying Vaughn's brother Simon, and they are to be thrown together not only because they'll soon be in-laws, but because they're both in the wedding.

Just because Sidney and Vaughn realize they are not right for each other because of their very different dating goals doesn't mean they're not intensely attracted. Being thrown together they end up getting physical, and Sidney justifies it as having some fun with "Mr. Right Now" while waiting for "Mr. Right".

Sidney's past, from her breakup to her relationship with her father made me feel so bad for her. She's not bitter, just has a sad, resigned acceptance of what happened and how things are. I think this most of all that lent the serious, somber aspect to It Happened One Wedding more than anything. As Vaughn and Sidney connect more emotionally, and become friends in addition to bedmates, some of that sadness lifts for Sidney, and Vaughn starts to feel desire for more than just a good time. I was thrilled when these two started to realize that their connection was more than just sex.

I was happily surprised Vaughn never had eyes for anyone else after Sidney came into the picture. I was fully expecting some flub-up that would've made it hard to like him. Instead, in spite of the time it took Vaughn to honestly acknowledge his feelings, I fell for him. His actions spoke louder than his words, and his inner denials.

Sidney was my favorite character. I just wanted to wrap her up and protect her from any more hurt. I think Vaughn felt the same way. I definitely wanted to slap her loser ex-fiancé after hearing the full story! A -hole! Her father was no prize either. *insert disapproving frown* Even when her sister's wedding planning reminds Sidney time and time of her setback, she always puts her sister's happiness above her own. Sisterly love and loyalty always get to me!

Julie James is the queen of class when it comes to romance stories, but that doesn't mean there isn't a hefty amount of sizzling scenes, as well. It Happened One Wedding was no exception. Any fan of Julie James or smart, classy contemporary romances will not be disappointed.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 This kills me to say, but... 13 mai 2014
Par Reader101 - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is the very first Julie James book that I can't give 5 stars. And it kills me to say that. But this one just didn't do it for me as much as her other stories. I read it in one sitting, which is normal because I love her stuff so much. But I found myself skimming a lot. Especially during the work scenes. I could care less about Sydney and her successful job. So she makes a lot of money and she's good at what she does. I don't need pages upon pages to tell me that. Just show it and be done. In her other FBI stories it seemed that the characters interacted more in the story (i.e. at work). In this one, they only interacted when it came to wedding things for their siblings. I kept waiting for one of the bad guys from Vaughn's case to see him with Sydney and go after her. Or for Sydney's father to be bad and Vaughn would have to take him down. I don't know. It just didn't have that constant spark where the two characters were forced together so much that they didn't have an escape. That's what I love most about her stories. The sexual tension was high and I still wanted to find out what happened at the end, but I didn't L-O-V-E it like her other stories. It was a bit more explicit than I'm used to also. No problem with that, per se. It just surprised me how graphic she made this one. Especially since the cover seems to allude it would be more of a sweet story. Like I said, it didn't bother me, but it surprised me a little.

I would definitely recommend this book, because, COME ON, it's Julie James. It just wasn't my favorite.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Smart and sexy 6 mai 2014
Par Kimberly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
It Happened One Wedding is both smart and sexy – my favorite kind of romance. Author Julie James has blended snark with substance and heat with heart to create a wonderfully entertaining story you won’t want to put down.

Sidney’s an intelligent, successful director at a private equity firm who’s thirty-three and determined to find the right man, one she can trust with her heart, a guy she can settle down and have a family with. FBI Special Agent Vaughn Roberts is not that kind of man. He may have charm and good looks on his side, but he’s a playboy at heart with no desire to get involved in a serious relationship. Though their initial “meet-cute” ends with Sidney writing him off, she can’t exactly do that once she learns that his brother is marrying her sister. Thrown together thanks to family, the sexual tension between Vaughn and Sidney slowly builds until it explodes in the most wickedly entertaining of ways. There’s a lot of push-pull in their developing relationship, and once in a while I wanted to shake Sidney and Vaughn to force them to be honest with themselves and each other about what they feel, but each had their reasons for being gun-shy about opening up.

It Happened One Wedding is incredibly well-written and I really appreciated the level of detail Ms. James included when it came to Sidney and Vaughn’s jobs. It’s clear Ms. James did her research and her doing so adds depth to the story that should not go unmentioned. In fact (charming romance aside), this is what sets It Happened One Wedding apart for me and is why I’m definitely going to be buying the rest of the FBI/US Attorney backlist. And speaking of said series, It Happened One Wedding is the first of Ms. James’s FBI/US Attorney stories that I’ve read and thus I can safely say it can be read as a standalone. But fans of the series shouldn’t worry – some of her past heroes and heroines do play a part in Vaughn and Sidney’s book. Whether you’re a fan of Julie James or simply enjoy a good contemporary romance, don’t miss It Happened One Wedding!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 13 août 2014
Par Meerkat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I was terribly disappointed with this book. Not because it was dull (it was). Not because the characters were bland (they were). And not because the plot was shallow (it was). I was disappointed because I adored James' first three books (Practice Makes Perfect, Just the Sexiest Man Alive, and Something About You), and I keep expecting her books to be as witty and entertaining as the first three were for me.

In the first place, I do not understand why this title is part of an FBI/US Attorney series. The characters do not have any interaction where their careers are concerned. There is no obstacle related to their respective occupations existing in this story, therefore the excruciating amounts of detail we are subjected to regarding their jobs has absolutely no bearing on the story. Personally, I did not find the minutiae of the every day life of a hedge fund manager to be particularly enthralling. Had it had something (ANYTHING) to do with the story, I would have soldiered through and taken it in. Instead, the reader is subjected to a morass of detail that does absolutely nothing to further the storyline. It was simply pages and pages of mind numbing filler that brings on the same sensation I feel when I am sitting in a deadly dull staff training (I swear, had phrases using the words "synergy", "paradigm shifts", or "thinking outside the box" begun to appear, I would have dropped this book faster then first period French). Since the intricacies of managing a hedge fund were completely unnecessary to furthering the plot, it would have been perfectly fine to state early on that the heroine was a hedge fund manager and moved on without the recitation of her job description.

By the same token, Vaughn's occupation is also irrelevant to the storyline. Since the plot did not involve he and the heroine having to work together to solve a case, he could have just as easily sold life insurance. For me, the locker room chats between the manly man FBI agents (giving the reader a sneak peek at the lives of the heroes of previous books) did not ring true. They did not sound like the way guys interact. I kept getting a picture of the group of them in my mind, in a generic locker room, standing arms akimbo, flexing and snorting. "We are amazing male specimens. Some of us have been tamed by amazing female specimens." At least in earlier books, the heroes had to use their FBI agent skills to further the plot. In this title, Vaughn kept mentioning the fact that he was an agent both to others and himself "I'm an undercover FBI agent, I should be able to...(fill in the blank)." His time at work was unnecessary filler just as much as Sydney's.

Unfortunately, the characters didn't seem like real people to me. I didn't find Sydney's "witty" comments witty. Vaughn came across as kind of a lunkhead. The two of them spending a great deal of time in self contemplation thinking about whether they were "ready to trust" again was about as interesting as watching someone's hair grow. The constant barrage of expensive wines, trendy shoes, fabulous restaurants, etc was not impressive and gave the characters a shallowness that did nothing to make them more interesting to me.

I do not expect all of James' books to be the same, but virtually every book beginning with A Lot Like Love has been the same cookie cutout characters who read like plastic people saying, "I am beautiful beyond comprehension. I will tell you more than you ever wanted to know about my job that has nothing to do with the plot of this book, and then I will have the sex."

I would love it if future books went back to characters who did more then sit around thinking about their feelings, and whose occupations were detailed only if they involved interaction between the hero and heroine (otherwise, it's nothing but pointless filler). Those first three or so books are the reason I have been disappointed with the others. They had flaws, but there were actual plots with obstacles for the characters to overcome (with a boatload of humor and snark thrown in for good measure). Where have those stories gone?

The womanizer meets his match!!!

This was another Classic Julie James. Her books follow a winning pattern without being repetitive or boring. Ms. James excels at light, fun, modern romances set in the real world. The characters are real - albeit attractive, smart, and successful - people. No wimps, either make or female! They're light - not too serious - but with excellent character and plot development and HEAs. The dialogue is clever but also realistic. I LOVE the dialogue - especially Ms. James' heroines; they have the type of dialogue I like to think I have: Witty, sarcastic, sometimes biting, but not cruel.

Another hallmark of Ms. James's novels is that the relationship develops over time. Instant attraction, but not insta-love. The H grows over time. In the book some people may not like what's going on with the h while the H and h get together, but it makes sense in the context, it's honest, and it's kind of funny. Besides it's necessary to give the H a kick in the pants. Yes if the roles were reversed I might have a problem, but considering what the H is like in the beginning, he deserves it!! Yes I'm being intentionally coy so as not to spoil anything. No artificial drama. No ridiculous displays. No trite plot devices. Just light, fun, sexy romance.

Another trait of a Julie James: her books also are rich in detail with the background of the story - frequently law enforcement, lawyers, big business, etc. In one book it was wine tasting (and she may have gone overboard with the details in that book, but at least she gets the details right!!!!). Her accuracy in a range of topics is exciting and original. (Though I did catch an error about the law in one of her early books!!! Tsk, tsk! That is actually her area!!) In this case, I enjoyed the short lesson into private equity companies.

You also catch up with a few of the couples from prior books, but you don't need to have read those books to enjoy this book. Though I might go re-read them to enjoy their getting to know you phase again.

And, as expected, her books have excellent English without typos and grammatical mistakes!!!

This was an excellent two hour read. I can't wait for the next one. Julie James is an auto-buy for me.
