{Review} Suddenly One Summer by Julie James

About The Book

Suddenly One Summer by Julie James

Publisher: Jove 

Publication Date: June 2, 2015

Genres: Contemporary


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 steamy…

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…


When I began reading this the first thing that came to mind was Wallbanger by Alice Clayton and that stuck with me throughout this story. I try to never compare stories/authors, but I could not get that story out of my head; it impacted my overall reading experience therefore I felt it warranted mentioning during this review.

These two did not stand a chance against destiny/fate. I adored the quirky relationship between Victoria Slade and Ford Dixon. Julie James mixed just the right amount of humor with two incredible characters to make this an entertaining read. I’ll admit this was not my favorite JJ read, but I would have regretted not reading it. My favorite thing about this story is the adventures (missions) that these two get involved in – hope you love these mini sleuths as much as I did.
