Book Review – Practice Makes Perfect

Practice Makes Perfect book coverPractice Makes Perfect by Julie James

This cute chick lit book features two senior associates, Payton & J.D., who are both vying for a single partnership position. Of course, hijinks and spark fly as the two compete with each other. This novel is surprisingly funny to the point where I giggled out loud a couple of times. The best part was the dialogue, not just between the main characters but also when those characters were talking to others. It was witty and sarcastic. I also liked the character of Payton. She is a strong, independent woman who can hold her own versus J.D. Overall, romantic and fun.

Review: At first, I asked myself: is this supposed to be a scathing indictment of the legal profession or just a very dry satire? Two of the main characters are stereotypical sleazy ambulance chasers. Jury’s still out on whether I liked them. But as the novel continued it turned into a well woven tale of David vs. Goliath that had a surprising yet satisfying ending.
