~"A contemporary romance superstar" --Kirkus
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…

Kirkus Reviews
2014-04-02
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.

    It Happened One Wedding by Julie James is the 5th book and anoth

    It Happened One Wedding by Julie James is the 5th book and another wonderful addition to her FBI/US Attorney series. I love this series, and Julie James has risen up on my list of authors I have to read. This is another series that is a relaxing enjoyable read, with a great story and romance… no stress other then maybe telling the couple to get on with what we know is coming. Lol

    Vaughn is our hero, and we know him from earlier books in this series. Vaughn is in a coffee shop, passing time until he meets his brother and his girlfriend for dinner. Being an FBI agent, Vaughn unconsciously eyes the people in the shop, while he sips his coffee. It is here we meet our heroine, Sidney, who is on a short blind date over coffee. As Vaughn watches her, he can tell she isn’t too happy talking to the guy, and soon the man leaves. Vaughn, who does enjoy one night stands with woman, decides to talk to the lady. Sidney sees through Vaughn as a womanizer, and ends up pissing him off with her sarcastic comments, while he tries to pick her up.

    When Vaughn gets to the restaurant, he is shocked to see Sidney, when she arrives to sit with them, as she is his brother’s girlfriend’s sister. It seems Vaughn’s brother and Sidney’s sister are getting married, and they want both of them to be part of the wedding as maid of honor and best man. I won’t give any spoilers, but to say what follows is pure fun to watch both Vaughn and Sidney having to spend time helping the happy couple, and they themselves can’t stand each other. The snarky comments between them are funny.

    Sidney, who is smart successful, beautiful, has come off a relationship that turned bad; she doesn’t trust men, and has a 34 point check list before accepting a 2nd date. Vaughn, who is a hunk, lives for the moment and has no plans of commitment ever, is already crossed off Sidney’s list. But strange things do happen, especially when you don’t want them too.

    Julie James does such a fantastic job building this romance, despite their dislike for each other. James touch of humor throughout was perfect, and soon the couple can’t keep their hands off each other, and sparks begin to fly off the wall. Their sex scenes were very hot, and we began rooting for them to open their eyes beyond the sex.

    Within the romance, is a background story of Vaughn trying to uncover bad cops, and also Sidney taking on a high prestige job. The secondary characters of Simon and Isabel (the couple getting married) added to the fun, as I loved when they were all together. There was one scene which was a riot, when Simon and Isabel come visit Sidney, not knowing Vaughn stayed overnight. Well done. I also liked seeing Cade and Huxley again joking around with Vaughn.

    I can’t say enough about Julie James, who writes these fabulous romances of experienced, smart, independent, savvy couples, and they are so much fun. It Happened One Wedding was a fast, fun, humorous, entertaining read, with a fabulous couple. You need to begin to read this series, if you haven’t done so yet.

    Great Contemporary Romance, Part of the Series, FBI/US Attorney.

    Great Contemporary Romance, Part of the Series, FBI/US Attorney. This book is a well written with witty characters who have lots of snarky, verbal sparring and a story line that you just don't want to end. Love the Laugh Out Loud Commentary and the ribbing that Vaughn's BFF's give him. I would highly recommend this book to contemporary romance fans.

    Julie James pens another sensational story in It Happened One We

    Julie James pens another sensational story in It Happened One Wedding.




    Sidney Sinclair has had it with commitment phobic men. After her engagement went bust after she found out her fiancé was cheating Sidney knew exactly what she didn’t want in a man. When her sister gets engaged and set to marry quickly she is forced to deal with just that type of man the groom to be brother.




    FBI special agent Vaughn Roberts first meeting with Sidney had her putting him in his place. This smart and sexy redhead had him pulling out all the charms to win her over. But Sidney has been burned before and this makes Vaughn all that more determined to win over this woman that he can’t stop thinking about.




    What starts out as a battle of wits turns into a something neither of them saw coming.  Vaught and Sidney didn’t start out on the right foot with each other but they came together in a searing passion and a love that both of them needed.




    It Happened One Wedding is a book that will charm you to your toes. It has wit, sass and all out sexiness. I loved how Vaught and Sidney didn’t fall all over each other at first but gradually came to see the truth about each other. This book will have a special place in your heart, it did for me.

    I¿ve never read any of Julie James¿s books that have disappointe

    I’ve never read any of Julie James’s books that have disappointed me and her latest release “It Happened One Wedding”, is a fantabulous ride all the way to the alter.

    I totally adore her FBI/US Attorney series, and Vaughn getting hitched was a treat to read. I still remember him from Julie’s first book, “Something About You”, and always wondered if he would get his own HEA, and am so happy he met with Sydney Sinclair.

    I love Julie’s narration, so full of wit, charm and romance. The banter between Vaughn and Sydney was just so sweet and totally rocked! Caught up in their respective siblings’ Simon Roberts’s and Isabelle Sinclair’s marriage, the foreplay between Vaughn and Sydney is just hilarious. As they tap danced around each other baiting and skirting around the edge of lust and longing, you can’t help but fall in love with Vaughn and Sydney. Sydney’s 34 points of finding her Mr. Right was such a perfect twist to the story as was to Vaughn and her asking Vaughn for advise as she dates men, was just too comical! 

    Having read Julie’s blog about her research with her Special Agent”, it made reading “It Happened One Wedding”, so much more special. Being a FBI Agent necessarily doesn’t mean there is always trouble in undercover work or handling any situations. I loved Julie for keeping the story calm, smooth and have Vaughn figure out weather he wanted to taste all the shiny treats at his disposal or chose to woo Sydney. This is one of my favorite parts in the book – 

    “For men as attractive as you, this city is one big candy store, filled with so many shiny treats, you couldn’t possibly choose just one.  So instead, you run around with your obviously healthy ego, sampling as many goods as you can get your hands on-simply because you can”

    Cade and Huxley were just hilarious ribbing and getting back at Vaughn with his relationship, and Simon and Isabel just added more flavor and spice to the story. This is one smoking hot, ultra savvy, slick read and scrumptiously delicious to the end.
