I am a big fan of Haleigh Lovell since reading her first two books, Vivian’s List and Liam’s List. I was super excited to hear of another book with connecting characters and Julian’s story; he was such a big part of the first two books and I was looking forward to reading more about him. I was definitely not disappointed and Ms Lovell has an incredible writing style that kept me captivated throughout.

Julian Sorenson has been hurt badly before by love. Now out of the Military, Julian has to build a career. He is interviewed for the position as Creative Director at an advertising firm. He is confident and gives the interviewers, Sadie Frost and David Varner, exactly what they want to hear.

At the interview, meeting Sadie Frost has been a highlight for Julian. He was immediately attracted to her and couldn’t wait to put his charm to the test. Now two weeks later, Julian is working for Hall and Heinrich and is being advised by a colleague to stay away from “the sadist Ice Queen”, Sadie. Although Julian listens, he believes Tim was rejected by her in the past and his ego is hurt; all Julian knows is that he wants Sadie.

Julian begins the process of getting under Sadie’s skin and with determination, hard work and a lot of charm, he doesn’t give up until she agrees to frozen yoghurt.

Sadie Frost is a single mother to six year old, Evan. She has had to fight tooth and nail to get where she is right now as Senior Account Executive at Hall and Heinrich. No matter what happens at work, she HAS to keep her icy exterior, show no emotion, do not let anybody know how they really do hurt her.

Nobody has any idea who the father is of Sadie’s son, she came home pregnant from college at eighteen and hasn’t spoken of him. She has never had a relationship since, men have failed her trust. Sadie’s life is complicated, her mother is an alcoholic and behaves like a twenty year old and her son has a condition that requires regular check-ups. There is no way she wants a relationship right now and especially a work colleague. But Julian has other ideas!

Who is Evan’s father? What is wrong with Sadie’s son? Will she give in to the obvious connection she shares with Julian? Can Julian finally break through her barrier and get Sadie to trust him?

Julian’s Pursuit is hilarious, I was laughing out loud at Julian’s antics, and he could always make Sadie smile. Julian is such a sweet sweet man who has been through a lot in his life already. Andrea (Sadie’s mother) was such a fab character also, her way with words was just so funny. This is one fun, sizzling hot, sweet, beautiful and unpredictable love story that all romance readers should pick up.
