Ok this is a book that should come with a couple of warnings, like do not read while drinking because sudden bursts of laughter could cause unseemly displays, do not read in public because rolling on the floor of public transport may cause you to be arrested, among others.  Seriously I kept highlighting lines that had me in fits of laughter and looking back I have pages of highlights from the first line in the first chapter "What are you thinking about hike you're pretending to listen to me?" I was hooked. Lily as a heroine I wish I had as a best friend, I just loved her sense of humour, "chipmunks are adorable, I'm empowered." Now who could argue with that, and she comes across as so down to earth, loyal and sincere and real that I want to add her to my address book. Now Adam on the other hand I wouldn't mind adding to my little black book, except for the fact that he is now taken by my friend Lily and had been a player but "He had grown rom being one of the cutest boys in my class, to being devastatingly handsome. His hair was such a dark brown it was almost black, and even though it was cut short it had  slight curl to it. He had eyes like warm chocolate and his dark lashes and eyebrows showcased them refectory." Ok I'm in love.  You have to love Adam's Jewish family too, they fall for Lily not only is she Jewish but she goes to the same synagogue what more could a Jewish mother want, the phone call when Adam's mum rings Lily's phone had me in stitches look out for it.  A wonderfully written story by someone who not only knows the workings of the court system so it is real but has an amazing sense of humour and a deft hand with romance that makes this a book that is going straight to my favourite shelf, and one that I will be rereading when I need a pick me up and a good laugh. I received a free copy for an honest review.

As in her other books this writer is so talented the way she has the amazing banter between the two main people in this book, then to have it tie into a amazing funny sexy story! She is my new favorite writer for the fact all her books are strong writing, funny, sexy, and will keep you coming back for more. There are not that many writers like this that ALL there books are strong writing and that's a rare thing today especially if there is more than one book. Again my new favorite writer!

N.M. Silber's "Legal Briefs" is the third tale in the Lawyers in Love series, but you can read it as a standalone, I did. This is the first book I've ever read that was equal parts erotic, humor, and mystery! The sexy scenes are yummy and Lily and Adam's chemistry is amazing! I love their banter! It's also very funny - a few times there are things that reminded me of Tara Sivec because they made me laugh out loud. The mystery element keeps it spicy never know what twists and turns the plot will take. Excellent read. I can not wait to read the companion novella, "Legally Wed."

A Fun, Sexy Romance… A Must Read! This book was a most welcome change from the last intense book I read.  It was funny, sexy, a little mystery, touching, upbeat and had fabulous characters.  A great book about two people (who knew each other since they were 4 years old) falling in love, maybe in love for a long time.  Lily had some unique neighbors, that’s for sure.  They shared the same friends.  When Lily and Adam come together….they really come together!!  Lol    An awesome book with some great laughs and love. You have got to read this book, you will definitely enjoy it and you won’t regret it!!

The lawyers in love series follows several lawyers and their blooming romances. This book tell's Adam Roth and Lily Adler's story. Adam is probably my favorite male character in the series. He is sarcastic, witty and sexy. He is quite the ladies man, killing them with his looks and swave charm. He has great friends and a wonderful family. However his childhood nemesis Lily Adler continues to follow him through life. While Adam is a ADA, and a very good one at that, Lily is the lowly quiet law librarian. Or so we think. Lily is sweet and quiet, at first glance. However you soon learn she is just a quick witted and funny as Adam. And just as sexy! Lily is the quiet demure librarian during the day and the steamy smut novel writer at night. She and Adam have known eachother since childhood and have been arguing ever since. Lily and Adam are forced to spend time together courtesy of two of their best friends Braden and Gabrielle (whom star in book 1 & 2). They are constantly teasing and harrasing eachother, but after a suspenseful event in the woods, they realize there may be a deeper connection. Although Adam is my favorite male character in this series, the ensemble of supporting characters is what I truly love about these books. The banter is hilarious, the sex is super steamy and the stories are well written. I highly suggest you pick up a copy today!!!

After Reading the first two books in this series and absolutely loving them, I was excited to be offered the chance to read and review the  third book. Besides that, I really wanted to know what adventures/trouble Lily and Adam would get into.  I have to honestly say I was hooked from the first sentence. NM Silber has a way of writing that is just comfortable and draws you in. The humor that she adds to her books make them fun. If you like kids in your books you will love Adam's nephew. I was Laughing so  hard a few times I had tears rolling down my cheeks. Lily and Adam have known each other practically their whole lives and it has been a rocky road. Having started in preschool with picking on each other their love/hate relationship takes a turn when they chase a potential burglar away, and they realize that there is more love than hate.  This book has lots of fun twists and turns with some mystery and adventure thrown in. I absolutely loved this book and hope that you  enjoy it also.

4.5 Stars From the first Lawyers in Love book I have been waiting for Adam and Lily’s story.  Their snarky banter and obvious distaste for each was hilarious.  The fact that they have known each other for most of their lives and had never even flirted with an attraction made me wonder- do they just protest too much? The answer- oh hell yes! Lily is fantastic.  Sassy (which we love) and put together.  She is also hiding this seriously sexy author persona.  An author that may be voicing her secret fascination with a certain man whore lawyer.  One she can’t get out of her head…and may really need in her bed. Then there is Adam.  Who has no filter, goes after and gets exactly what he wants.  But can’t figure out what it is about Lily that brings him back.  When he reads her books the crazy attraction they have gets even stronger.  But so does he need to protect her.  He doesn’t do relationships, yet his need to go all caveman especially with one of her ex’s and Mark, makes him question his plans. Maybe he does want more.  Need more. When she is threatened he is at her side, day and night. Cue some incredible sexy times.  With healthy helpings of snarky conversations, laugh out loud fighting and quiet moments that make them stop to wonder where the time together is going. And a Lawyers in Love book wouldn’t be the same without some nosy family, crazy friends and a bit of suspense and mystery.  Which we are given in spades! Adam’s sisters and family are too funny.  Calling him on his new relationship before he even has a name for it- they are able to see how he has changed, that how he wears his heart on his sleeve will likely get him the girl.  The right girl who will challenge him and in Lily he has everything he needs. Now to convince Lily. I love them together.  This entire crazy, wonderful world that Silber has created has become my addiction.  Now on to Mark and my next fix :)

I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review. In this part of the series we get a closer look at Lily and Adam. With all the bickering they have been doing for years, it was only right for them to finally get together. This is one of the funniest series I have read in a while. And every plan is concocted by Gabrielle and she talked all her friends into following her ideas and one of these days she will get it right. And add in the nuts that live in Lily's building, this story has suspense and intrigue that will keep you guessing what will happen next. This is a great series and will have you laughing the whole while you are reading it. I loved it and can't wait for more.  **Wicked reads Review Team**

Legal Briefs (Lawyers in Love, #3) by Silber, N.M. 5 out of 5 stars!   N.M. Silber has hit a home run with this one!  Just the right amount of everything! Sexy and steamy with a good solid story line.  The couples are adorable, the characters are loveable and utterly believable.  I am anxiously waiting to see what happens to the rest of their tight knit group of friends, there are a couple of single hotties left for her to dazzle us with.  Silber has matured into a very talented writer right before my eyes in her 3 book series.  Kudo’s!  Here’s a tidbit to get you hooked… His eyes slid down my body and that same, not-so-liberated, inner part of me clapped with glee that I had decided to make an effort to look good that night.  And I did look good, damn it, not at all like the mousy librarian Adam saw me as.  I had on black form-fitting pants that flattered my figure, tucked into black high-heeled boots, and paired with a scoop-necked knit top in a deep shade of purple that I liked.  I didn’t shrink back at all under his gaze.  In fact, I cocked an eyebrow and gave him my best smirk. “See something you like?” I asked sarcastically. “I don’t know.  Your clothes are in the way.  Why don’t you sit down and join me, or would you rather stand there all night?”  He said.  He was dressed in an olive button down and black trousers, looking much too sexy.  I tried not to think about how much I wanted to run my tongue along the stubble on his jaw. “I thought that maybe your companion would be returning,“ I answered, hiding my desire behind an unfriendly look.  Bruce wasn’t here to take his side anymore.  “Who?” he asked. “Your friend, the blonde dairy state.” “Oh, her? She wasn’t my companion.  Although she would have liked to have been,” he replied and smiled smugly, looking back up to meet my eyes again.  I wanted to kick him. “Well, I don’t want to get in the way of whoever the lucky lady may be,” I retorted but I sat down next to him anyway. “Be nice to me and maybe you’ll get lucky,” he shot back.  The look of fury on my face must have amused him because he burst out laughing.  Well, if I wanted someone who created a reaction in me, I certainly got my wish. I strongly suggest that you read all 3 books.  You need the background from the first 2 to truly make this one shine. I loved it and hope that there is another book in the works very quickly! **I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**  Cheryle, My Secret Book Spot

Having adored books 1 & 2, I could not wait to read book 3 in the Lawyers in Love Series. Adam and Lily did not disappoint in this fabulously sexy read. Silber's special brand of funny shines in this novel and paired with some hot steamy love scenes, I could not but the novel down! A perfect blend of humor, romance and suspense are combined to keep the reader engaged and delighted, but also thinking and wondering about how everything will play out. I actually found myself laughing so hard at times that I was worried I might wake my husband up!! I particularly like that Silber does not resort to the kind of drama that burdens the story. There is no shortage of banter, but it is fun and light, rather than nasty and uncomfortable. Her characters are genuine and they speak and act like people I know. This is a welcome departure from contrived silly caricatures you can sometimes find in this genre. I already loved this series and was excited to read this book, but this was definitely my favorite so far! This is a must read for anyone who just loves love.

So this is the third book in the Lawyers in Love series. The first two books deal with Braden and Gabrielle. The their books deals with Adam and Lily who are introduced in the first two books. You can read this book as a stand alone but I recommend reading them in order to familiarize yourself with the characters. I truly enjoyed this book. It had hilarious scenes and hot sexy ones too. It was a perfect blend. Adam and Lily are just has funny as Braden and Gabrielle but the sexual tension is hotter. Their chemistry is unbelievably hot. I also enjoyed catching up with the rest of the characters from the previous books. I really enjoy N.M. Silber writing style. She had me laughing so hard while reading this book. I believe she wrote a great romantic comedy for all to enjoy. I can't wait to read more books from the Lawyers in Love Series.

Adam & Lily have known each other since they were 4 years old.  They grew up in a close knit community and there has always been tension between them.  Now 23 years later that tension has taken a turn for the sexual.  They have been thrown together in social situations by their friends Braden & Gabriel who are now happily married.  Can they take a chance and explore this new found tension?  Can anybody figure out what the heck is going on in Lily’s building?  The answers to that and so much more in this hilarious new book by N.M. Silber.  There are scenes in this book I had to read 3 and 4 times as I couldn’t see the page I was laughing so hard.  For a sexy, funny read check out this book.  I guarantee you will get a kick out of these lawyers in love.

I absolutely loved Legal Briefs. The main characters, Adam and Lily, were first introduced to us in The Law of Attraction and The Home Court Advantage, respectively. You can easily read this book without having read the first two, but I definitely recommend the whole series because it's that great. The other characters we meet in the first two books are also in Legal Briefs. Adam's a prosecutor and a player and Lily's a law librarian by day and an author of thrillers by night. But let's not forget Lilah Alden, Lily's pen name, for her erotic romances! They've fought with each other since preschool. But what exactly were they fighting? It's more than fruit roll-ups and glitter! You'll see! Their story had me laughing, but it was also heat, and it was sweetness. They're already fighting an attraction that sparked a few months before, well maybe not so much fighting as trying to find ways to deal with it. From the beginning we know that the want is there for both of them. I love that we don't have to wait half the book for the relationship to start. They are crazy and fun, and it comes across to the reader. I laughed out loud more than once. The story flows well, and I absolutely love that there isn't needless drama thrown it at the end where we are left wondering will they or won't they. Doesn't life have enough of that already? The humor is there throughout the whole story. There's a mystery weaving throughout, and the discovery is pretty fun too. A little Murder by Death/Clue thrown in! I highly recommend it to anyone who likes to laugh, likes some racy romance, and/or enjoys a mystery. The cast of characters are not to be missed. Cannot wait for the follow-up stories and serial to come! I was given a copy by the author as a beta reader for an honest review.
