A special Thank you to my new friend Catriona for reviewing this book and a Thank You to NetGalley for sending it for review.
Two feuding divorce lawyers.
One infectious "love bug" virus.
The symptoms are hard to resist . . .
Paige Hart is blessed and cursed with a large, loving and. . .colorful Southern family. As the only lawyer in the clan, she can't say no when her cousin needs her help in a messy, no-holds-barred divorce. Tax attorney Paige squares off with Ross "the Snake" Bennett-one of the slickest divorce lawyers in the county. The case is going as well as an acrimonious, zinger-filled, wrangle of epic proportions can go until exposure to an infectious bug with an unusual side effect lands both lawyers in quarantine together.
I was hooked on this book right from the word go. It doesn’t hang around and gets you into the action straight away. There’s also no time wasting on describing elaborate settings and environments because the two main characters are locked in a hospital room, this really allows for the dialogue and action between them to tell the story itself.
I found this a super speedy read because the tension between the characters builds and builds and right from the word go, I found myself needing to know what was going to happen, how things were going to pan out between them. On a number of pages I even realised I was holding my breath whilst the two of them dealt with the tension, sexual and otherwise, in the room.
The sexual scenes in this book are not for the faint-hearted and will leave any reader a little hot under the collar, but without them this book really wouldn’t have worked. Along with the main characters there is a sub-story involving their doctor which I would have liked to have seen developed a little more… Apart from that, however, I found this a thoroughly enjoyable ‘ride’ from start to finish!
Have you ever seen that movie Laws of Attraction? It's about two rival divorce lawyers that end up falling for each other - one of my favorite romcoms and this book sounds so much like it! I love the premise of it and that it sounds like a fun, easy afternoon read. I haven't read much adult romantic fiction lately - something I'm starting to miss! I may have to check this one out; thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I would love to read this book. I am planning to study law and books with lawyer characters inspires me most. This is a great help. I would also check out the book suggest in the other comment, especially that there is a romantic touch on it. I like the irony of a love story between two divorce lawyers. perthReplyDelete
This kind of plot inspires me as well. I love reading books related to attorneys or lawyers. As a long island divorce lawyer, I can always relate to some of the scenes and settings in the story. Anyway, I look forward to reading this book.ReplyDelete
