Smart. Funny. Real. Hot.
These are the things I look for in contemporary romances, and no one serves them up better than Julie James.
Julie writes about Chicago, a city I lived in for my freshman year of college. My main memories of Chicago center around being too young to get into anywhere cool, volunteering at a jail one night a week where I heard some horrific stories, and freezing my ass off for eight months. Yet Julie’s books make me long to go back.
Her heroines are smart. They’re really freaking smart. And their heroes love them for it. That’s right – smart, sexy men know where it’s at.
With snappy dialogue, strong friendships and believable conflicts, her books feel realistic but still offer a perfect fantasy.
But there’s something else I really admire about Julie James. She publishes one book a year. Okay, as a reader that leaves me yearning for more, but as an author I know how much pressure there can be to publish 100 books a year. I love it that Julie writes one book a year and makes it completely awesome.
If you haven’t read Julie’s books, do yourself a favor and order one NOW. I promise you won’t be able to put it down.
