This is a fast sexy hot read where the chemistry between these two characters heats up the pages so that you don't want to put the book down. It involves an interesting plot and some conflict with additional intrigue which gives it additional impact. I like the character Bette Monroe. She's dedicated and ambitious but knows when to cut her losses and leave. As for the dynamic Simon, well let's just say he took awhile for me to warm up to. But together they just work! It was amusing reading the cat and mouse games they played causing me to laugh several times. Additionally, Simon's partners are just as inviting and fascinating as Simon, leading this reader into hoping there will be future books involving them. I give this 3.5 STARS because I would of like a little more substance to the story.
Legal Seduction by Lisa Childs Legal Lovers #1 Simon Kramer was on the street as a child but over time, with the help of his three buddies, the four have managed to get an education and open their own law practice. There is a spy in their midst and Simon is on the lookout for who it might be. Bette Monroe, his personal assistant, seems to be a likely candidate so his intention is to get her to admit it…one way or another…even though she has just tendered her resignation. Bette’s dream is to make it big in fashion and with that a possibility she is more than ready to move on…but…she might just want a taste of Simon before she leaves. The mystery is not resolved by the end of the book and my guess is that the three other partners will have their stories told in the future. This was a quick easy read set in the workplace and definitely more fantasy than reality but fun to read. Thank you to NetGalley, Barclay Publicity and Harlequin DARE for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars
Legal Seduction is a lesson in character building. He's the tough guy, with a good head on his shoulders, but a deeply guarded heart. She's the wallflower with big dreams and secret fantasies. Simon and Bette could be a perfect match, if they learn to trust each other. Lisa Childs scorches up the pages with her sensual tango of love lust and mistrust. Love is a risky business and Ms Child's makes the risk worthwhile.
