Once upon a time two lawyers fell in love across a courtroom …
Gabrielle Ginsberg was a public defender with plenty of nerve and Braden Pierce was an assistant district attorney with a whole lot of swagger. Gabrielle wanted Braden and Braden wanted Gabrielle.
And Cameron wanted Gabrielle.
And Marla wanted Braden.
And Cole wanted Gabrielle.
And Mrs. Mason wanted Braden.
And an anonymous letter writer wanted to keep Gabrielle and Braden apart.
Together Gabrielle and Braden discovered many important things, like which doors at the courthouse actually locked, and that desks could be useful for more than writing. They also found out that the path of love was not always smooth, and it was sometimes tread upon by some really wacky people, like a confused fanny grabber, an eighty-two year old pothead and a gentleman who threw a wine and cheese party in his pants. Could true love overcome a lack of privacy, interference by jealous rivals and the insanity of the criminal court system?
NOTICE: This book contains explicit descriptions of sexual situations and mature language. It is intended for readers over the age of eighteen.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
The cover shows just a fraction of the fireworks you will find in this amazingly humorous book. I absolutely loved this fun romantic book, oh and you can’t forget the hot scenes that the author has added. The book is an easy read but it is for 18 and above. This book will keep you laughing at both Braden and Gabrielle in and out of the Court room. I love all the different scenes that the author brings to you of courts but with humorous situations. Even the judge will have you laughing out loud. The descriptions in the book is not overwhelming and she doesn’t overuse words while at the same time you are not confused with courtroom talk.
Braden is an Assistant Director Attorney, while Gabrielle is a Public Defenders Attorney. Their continuous arguing in court may have started the sparks for something a little more permanent between two different Attorneys.
What happens when you have two lawyers who understand that their work in the court room has to be still profession yet there is sexual friction in the air among cases that a Public Defender knows they will not win because their client is guilty. They both find ways to appease that feeling that is what!
I didn’t want to even put the book down, every moment I was able to sneak a couple of paragraphs at work I would even read it. It is a book that is on my books I will reread on my list. This is definitely a book that will keep you company and laughing when you need it. You are able to tell that the author is truly passionate with her writing by the way this book is written and makes you feel as if you are part of the story. I am looking forward to the second one and until then will recommend this to others who are looking for a funny yet romantic book.
Once upon a time … N.M. Silber was a criminal defense attorney who got up each morning, donned her power suit and sensible pumps, downed a gallon of coffee and set out to “fight the good fight” while trying to not go insane. Having a dark sense of humor and a sarcastic wit helped — a lot. Another thing that helped was reading. As escapism was the goal, she liked to read romance novels, especially really funny ones and really sexy ones. Then one day something beautiful happened — she read one that was both funny and sexy at the same time. She hung up her power suit, put away her sensible pumps and moved her coffee mug to her computer. Now she writes funny and sexy romance novels herself and she lives happily ever after.
