First of all, I love all things Julie James. She is one of my
absolutely favorite authors! I’ve read and re-read all her previous
books and have loved them. She always delivers! Her characters are
always strong, funny, quirky, vulnerable and just absolutely lovable. I
find myself laughing-out-loud with her characters and their witty
comments. I love her new characters, her old characters and even her
secondary characters. “It Happened One Wedding (FBI/US Attorney #5” is
First, Sydney Sinclair is fantastic. She is a strong career woman. She
is running an investment company, she is smart and funny. Sydney is
also very heartbroken. Six months ago she found out her fiancé was
cheating on her. She knows that she does not want to repeat the same
mistakes and therefore she is very, very guarded. Although she is
dating and wants to meet someone and eventually have the marriage and
the kid’s package, she has very specific criteria.
Special Agent Vaughn Roberts loves his job and his life as a whole. He
is young, handsome and living his life out to the fullest. He has
plenty of admirers and he is not afraid to take what is offered to him.
When he meets Sydney, he is in for a rude awakening. She has him
figured out by the time the first word leaves his mouth. I loved Vaughn
in all the previous books. I thought he was so confident and
charismatic, I was so happy when I found out that he was going to be the
hero in this book.
Sydney and Vaughn are so great together! Ms. James has them meeting in a
coffee shop and the scene is just perfection. I loved everything about
it and I was instantly hooked on them as a couple. Because Vaughn is
everything that Sydney doesn’t want and is trying to avoid she gives him
very big and loud “keep away signals” but as fate would have it they
are constantly thrown together. Everything about this story was so
beautiful and touching. I loved how Sydney came to terms for her
feelings for Vaughn and how he became just the man she was always
waiting for. Their respective families are also so great. Even the
supporting characters were enjoyable. As is often the case with many of
James’ books I go back and re-read because there are scenes that just
stay with me! Sydney and Vaughn had such fantastic chemistry together!
They were perfectly matched and knew just how to provide the perfect
element of challenge for one another. There are so many delicious bits
to this book, but I’m not going to give them away- they are all worth
the time to read and re-read and ponder. My one complaint… when is her
