~Shortlisted for the ALA’s 2015 Reading List for Best Romance 
SHE KNOWS BETTER THAN TO SAY “I DO”
After a humiliating end to her engagement, investment banker Sidney Sinclair is done with commitment-phobic men. But when her sister winds up engaged after a whirlwind courtship, Sidney is thrown into close contact with exactly the kind of sexy playboy she wants to avoid—the gorgeous best man. She’s stuck with him, for better or worse, until her sister walks down the aisle, but that doesn’t mean she has to give in to his smooth advances, no matter how tempting they are…
BUT HE MAKES IT HARD TO SAY “I DON’T”
Special agent Vaughn Roberts always gets his man on the job and his woman in bed. So Sidney’s refusal to fall for his charms only makes him more determined to win over the cool and confident redhead. Only what starts out as a battle of wills ends up as a serious play for her heart. Because the one woman who refuses to be caught may be the only one Vaughn can’t live without…

Attraction sparks between FBI agent Vaughn Roberts and Sidney Sinclair when they meet, but she's looking for a relationship, not a player—a situation that becomes increasingly complicated when they're forced to plan a wedding together. Professionally, Sidney has reached the pinnacle of her career, moving back from New York to Chicago to accept the position of her dreams. Which almost makes up for the fact that the man she thought was her perfect match cheated on her two weeks before they were supposed to get married, six months ago: "As a director at one of the most successful private equity firms in the country, she had great instincts when it came to determining whether a company was a good or bad investment.... Now she simply needed to apply those same instincts to her personal life." After a disastrous blind date in a coffee shop, a sexy FBI agent hits on her, and every one of those instincts tells her the man isn't a good bet for long-term commitment: "Because, in truth, any woman who allowed herself to be swept up in the romantic fantasy of dating this kind of guy would be ignoring one crucial fact. This guy was a bad investment." Rejecting his come-on in no uncertain terms, Sidney heads off to meet her sister's new boyfriend and is shocked to discover that the two are engaged—and that the sexy agent is the boyfriend's brother. As best man and maid of honor, Sidney and Vaughn are thrown together to help plan a quick marriage (her sister is also pregnant, though they're keeping it secret from everyone but Sidney), while their simmering attraction boils over, creating a whole new set of conflicts and obstacles to their shared happiness. James is a contemporary romance superstar, known for intelligent characters and quick, witty dialogue that ratchets up intense sexual tension. Her new novel goes in a slightly different direction from her recent titles, creating strife without any external suspense devices—to great effect. Sexy and effervescent.

This is the first book that I have read by Julie James and I can tell you that I will go back and read her other books! I love how the all the characters had wonderful chemistry and were eritten as everyday people. Steamy sexuall tension and sexual encounters kept me hooked all day! I strongly recommend this sweet, funny, sexy and endearing book to all!

I was looking forward to reading this book, and will hold off for awhile. I don't know why people who review it have to tell the story, and ruin it for everyone else.

I have and love all 7 of Julies other books. I waited, waited, and was disappointed. This was dry and predictable. I could tell you by chapter two how the whole story was going to go, with little deviation. It flowed like student work from a romantic writing class. So below her stsndard.

Yes. A Day. I was hooked from the first chapter and could not put this book down, so I read all day. So glad the kids were in school. Vaughn Roberts has been a recurring character in Julie James FBI/US Attorney series. Those of you hoping he'd get his own book and his own happily ever after will not be disappointed. There is passion, humor, heat and emotion. I laughed. I cried. I smiled. I ignored all the other things I needed to be doing. Happy reading.

It Happened One Wedding by Julie James (Audio Edition) Narrated by Karen White FBI-US Attorney Series #5 4 Stars - I found the book started off a bit slow (but perhaps this was just me getting used to the narrator’s style) soon enough however, the story picked up I really started to enjoy it and it kept me wanting to get back to it. Vaughn and Sydney had wonderful chemistry. I loved watching them fall in love with each other. The characters were funny, sweet, sarcastic and the writing was good. This was the first time I have read this author and I was pleasantly surprised. The only negative for me was the narrator. I found her manner of speaking quite jilted. Sometimes it was smooth and flowed other times not so much. By the middle to end of the book I assume I had just gotten used to it because I didn’t notice it as much. I have a feeling I will check out other books by this author! ~Paragraphs and Petticoats~

I started this while getting ready for Christmas Eve dinner tomorrow and let's just say I had to change dinner to Christmas Day. Ok it usually takes me about two maybe three chapters in to set the tone of "Omg I have to finish this today OR I'll just read a couple chapters before bed" So five and a half hour later I'm still smiling. This book was awesome. I love the subtle updates on the other characters. While secretly wishing for books on Huxley, Sam, and back a little further for Tyler. You true Julie James readers will not be leery down. Not too cheesy. Nobody fell in love in a day. Just genuine sarcasm and fabulous chemistry. I mean perfect. On the next one.
