My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received an ARC via netgalley.
At the powerhouse law firm of Knight & Payne, winning comes first and ethics a distant second. Leary Michaels uses her female charms to daze opponents, and it’s always worked well—until now. On her most personal case yet, she finds herself going up against a defense attorney just as skilled, shameless, and seductive as she is.
Reeve Holloway has never met a woman as sure of her own sexuality, or as ruthless in wielding it, as Leary is. But he won’t be toyed with. What Leary starts, he’ll finish—in the courtroom, the bedroom, or any-damn-place he wants. The sex is uninhibited, electrifying, and absolutely against the rules. Reeve’s job is to ruin Leary’s case…even if it destroys her in the process and costs him the woman he’s come to love.
I really enjoyed this book. I tend to like the genre of lawyers in love. It was a cute and light read. Both Leary and Reeve are really likable characters. At first, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the fact that Leary uses her femininity to get ahead, but the way she does it is very empowering and I really liked her for it. She doesn’t come across tawdry, but more strong and smart. Both Reeve and Leary are really good people with big hearts. I think Leary is a realistic character and I could relate to her dilemma. Reeve is her opponent and while it’s easy to say she wouldn’t let work get in between their relationship, I completely understand not being able to keep the lines clear. As their love blooms, their love/work relationship gets complicated and I can’t blame Leary for her reaction. The best part is that Leary and Reeve are really dedicated to another and there wasn’t any annoying miscommunication or silly drama to take away from the story. It also has a nice happy ending.
