Not You It's Me by Julie Johnson

Gemma Summers is unlucky in love.
She's known it since third grade, when her first crush blew a spitball into her hair, and a decade-long string of bad dates, boring sex, and abysmal morning-afters has done nothing to improve her prospects.
But when a random radio call-in contest lands her courtside tickets to the hottest playoff game of the season, Gemma's luck may finally be on the upswing - even if it doesn't exactly seem like it when the dreaded jumbotron kiss-cam lands on her and her date, who's too busy ignoring her to notice...

Chase Croft doesn't date.
Despite ample opportunity as Boston's most eligible bachelor, the reformed bad-boy would rather put his energy into taking over the family business than weed through a world of gold-diggers to find an honest woman.
But when the beautiful girl in the seat next to him becomes a courtside spectacle at the hands of her loser boyfriend, he can't help but step in and save the day.

One kiss. Two strangers. No strings attached.
The only problem is, Chase is used to getting whatever he wants. And after kissing Gemma once, he knows one thing...
He wants more.

NOT YOU IT'S ME is a full-length, standalone contemporary romance about a girl who doesn't believe in love... and the man who changes her mind. Due to sexy-times and strong language, it is intended for readers 17 and up.

I fell in love with this book. I go through phases with romance novels and I randomly came across this one. Sadly, it wasn’t one of the ones I was going through a phase with but I fell in love! The female character isn’t like other head strong females from other books. She was a nice breath of fresh air and let me tell you! She was hilarious! This book at me laughing so loud my husband thought I was going crazy. I felt right at home with this book. So many scenes where it should’ve been serious had me laughing! I definitely recommend this book if you’re wanting a cute romance between a caveman of a man and a quick witted woman who says everything she’s thinking! I felt a connection with Gemma and her friends were to die for! They were all so funny yet so different. Chase is every woman’s dream of a man! Handsome, alpha, and just straight up dreamy. Love love love! Only thing I was upset with with this book was it ending!

Great romance book. Never read Julie Johnson before, 321 nookpgs. This was a really sweet, hot, and sometimes silly, very steamy story. I really liked Gemma quirkiness, an Chase's sweet way of really seeing thru Gemma's defenses. Also Gemma's friends add spice to this story as well, they are funny when together! They are a cute couple with family drama, that adds a little action to the story. Highly recommend. ****

Gemma and Chase. I have no other words. I love Julie Johnson. If you've never read anything by her before, read this and then go read everything else too. You will never regret it.

I'm a huge fan of Julie Johnson's writing. I feel like she's one of the undiscovered diamonds of the writing world. Her books are entertaining, funny, emotional, and just overall a great read. Each one has been different in content, and I'm so glad to see that trend continue with Not You It's Me. The only thing that hasn't changed from one book to the next is the consistency with which she writes and captures my attention. When I first started reading this book, I initially felt it was going to be a typical romance featuring a billionaire. Here's what I thought would happen because I've read quite a few. Man and woman meet, they're smitten with one another, they immediately fall into bed, then deal with their emotional baggage, and finally float off into the sunset on a yacht. Well I should've known this book would be different. After all, Julie wrote it, and she hasn't written anything "typical" yet! I loved Gemma and Chase. I could totally relate to Gemma's character. She's trying to find her place in the world and what she wants. All of her friends are settling down and she's thinking she wants to do the same. She's a little clumsy, but she's a go-getter. She'll go after what she wants, sometimes without thinking things all the way through. I really liked Chase too. Yes he was hot and swoon worthy, but it was obvious he cared for Gemma, no matter how brief their interaction. He was honorable and charming. It was also clear he hadn't had the easiest time growing up, even if he did have a silver spoon in his mouth. I liked how he was willing to do whatever to keep her safe. He's an alpha, but he's not shoving that down her throat. The two of them had some amazing chemistry. The kiss they shared that sparked something between them is proof of that. I liked how believable their relationship was. It might have developed quickly, but it didn't feel that way. I think what I loved most about this book was the mixture of laughter, romance, and the twists. I never knew what was going to happen next, and I loved it! It made for such a wonderful reading experience. I couldn't put this book down and I was often laughing aloud or putting my hand over my racing heart. There's so much more that makes this book amazing beyond Gemma and Chase. I loved Gemma's mother and her advice for her daughter. I both laughed my heart out at it and mentally cringed while picturing my mother doing the same. I absolutely loved Gemma's friends. Those two were hilarious! I loved how they supported Gemma unconditionally. Julie Johnson has really done a wonderful job with this book. My review in all honestly in no way does it justice. The magic of Julie's masterful story telling skills can only be experienced by reading one of them. If you're looking for a great beach read this summer, something to make you laugh and lift your spirits, or just a great story, this book is for you. I can not wait to see what great story Julie writes next!
