    Great book

    Great story, amazing characters who are totally real. Not a lot of sex but the storyline makes up for it. I really like the writing style of Julie James and am going to try another of her book right now.

    Just beautiful

    I cannot put the book down. I read the whole novel in one sitting. I love Victoria's and Ford's chemistry.

    More Somber than Snappy

    I was prepared to love this book, since I own and have read all of Julie James' other works; however, this book didn't seem to have the same snap and sass as her previous stories. Although well written, the subject matter was more somber, less exciting, and slower to sizzle. Victoria Slade has become cynical and jaded from the toxic marriages she's encountered through her job as a divorce lawyer, and definitely doesn't see marriage in her future. Ford Dixon, an investigative journalist, is the sexy neighbour next door who seems to have gotten off on the wrong foot with her. Believable drama ensues, so much like real life that it's a bit of a downer.

    Fun Read!

    I just finished Suddenly One Summer by Julie James and I am left with another warm and happy heart. James knows how to write fun, witty contemporary romance that keeps you turning pages while smiling, laughing and sometimes shedding a tear along the way. In Suddenly One Summer we are treated to Ford’s romance. I first met him in Love Irresistibly as the best friend of Brooke, the heroine of that story. It is so fun watching Ford fall in love. As in all of James’ stories, the heroine in this books is quite kickass. Victoria is a Divorce Attorney with her own successful law firm who lives next to Ford, an Investigative Journalist for the Chicago Tribune. Both of them have (surprise) intimacy issues and while Victoria is seeing a therapist about hers and we get to experience her growth during the story with her, Ford is dealing with his on his own. There are several side plots to this story. I enjoyed them yet sometimes I felt as though they stalled the overall romance between Ford and Victoria a bit. I wanted more of them and less of Ford and Victoria individually. I would have liked to see Ford and Victoria’s relationship build a little more since her character didn’t trust easily so I was surprised at how quickly they became intimate, but all in all I was happy with it and it ended well. Suddenly One Summer is a solid contemporary romance. It is flirty, fun and enjoyable. If you are looking for a good contemporary romance to read, give this one a try.
