Yeah, yeah, I know I’m about a year late to the party… but I’m going to review it anyways 🙂
This is a story about two lawyers, who work together… and fuck together. We get to read about their relationship progress from friends with benefits to lovers.
Stanton is a southern charmer and possesses a fine physique with a bedroom voice. Unfortunately, he isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer (if you know what I mean) when it comes to reading females. Or having a lot of common sense in regards to how relationships work. Or life, for that matter.
To add to that he also has a whole lot of baggage hauling behind him. As in a kid and a woman who he thinks he’s in love with.
Sofia is a very career focused lawyer, who believes she has no time for complicated relationships. She is happy to “assist” Stanton in the bedroom… as well with other ridiculous stuff. (you would have to read the book to know what it is)
Best part of the book was the angst. Normally I am not a fan of drama and angst, but it worked for this book. I felt it for the heroine and I was rooting for her.
The worst part of the book, for me, was (as you probably already figured out) the hero. He has a career in one state and his family in a different state. And he won’t commit to the woman that he thinks he loves. He also has no problem having fun on the side. *eye roll* But he did make me laugh at times, so that’s a plus.
I really enjoyed the Tangled series by Emma Chase and this book was nowhere close to the same level of banter and heat. Perhaps also worth mentioning that this book has a very slow start to it. I had to go back and read the blurb just to make sure I got the right audio book. lol
Would I recommend this book? Sure, if you are looking for a typical contemporary romance kind of read. Nothing wrong with it, I liked it… It just didn’t wow me.
