Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn't mean she's opposed to casual dating—just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister's case, she's as determined to win as ever—even if that means teaming up with Ford…
Investigative journalist Ford Dixon is bent on finding the man who got his sister pregnant and left her high and dry. He's willing to partner with Victoria, despite the fact that the beautiful brunette gets under his skin like no other woman. He might not be looking to settle down, but there's no denying the scorching attraction between them. Still, the more time he spends with Victoria, the more he realizes that the one woman as skeptical about love as he is might be the only woman he could really fall for…
Victoria Slade is a successful lawyer, leads the perfect life and above all she’s young. When her house is broken in and she suffers a terrible panic attack, Victoria decides it’s time to move. Victoria has been living for a while in her new apartment but she still hasn’t met her new neighbor until fate brings them together.

As an investigating journalist, it’s Ford’s job to know the people who live in his building until he meets his judgy little new neighbor. So when his sister, Nicole, asks Victoria to help her find her baby daddy, Ford has to help. They might not like each other much but they will work together to find the man who got Nicole pregnant.

I love reading books by Julie James. Suddenly one summer was an amazing realistic book with two incredible realistic characters. Everything about this book felt read. Both hero and heroine were smart, witty, dealing with their own problems. I loved how their romance built up step by step and it wasn’t rushed. Ford and Victoria spent a lot of time together investigating, bonding and finally falling for each other.

Victoria and Ford have a lot of issues to deal with, especially Victoria so when I read the end I was very surprised. I guess when you want something so much, you fight for it.

This book can definitely be read as a standalone since it doesn’t really belong to the FBI/ US Attorney series though Ford is Brook’s (Love Irresistibly) best friend. I loved that we got to see more of Brook and Cade. There were a couple of scenes with Ford and Brook that makes you realize how important friendship is and I loved that too.

Suddenly one summer was a marvelous read. Victoria and Ford were two amazing characters and so were Nicole and Zoe, the baby. I hope we get to see what happens with Nicole because I really liked her.

Since this is a Julie James book, I abso-f*cking-lutely recommend it!
