Brilliant Manhattan attorney Michael Rannigan has his life arranged exactly the way he likes it. As a founding partner at the law firm of Murphy, Rannigan, & Metheny, he can let his underlings do the legwork on the high profile defense cases his exclusive 50th floor division handles. He prefers to simply breeze in and do what he does best: dazzle juries and charm the press.
His private life is well-ordered, too. Michael doesn't have the time or the patience for relationships. Instead, he has a contact list of hot blondes who meet his needs at any given moment, whether it's a date to a gallery opening or awards show. Or he just wants to get laid.
Some people would call him shallow. But they're just envious.
Maggie Flynn has her life mapped out as well. After she graduates from law school she plans to take a job with the Prosecutor's Office where she interned. But when she attends a job fair and meets Michael Rannigan, her plans change. She's studied his cases, even heard him speak once. He's smart and sexy and she can't resist interviewing with him.
Michael hires Maggie and has her assigned to his elite 50th floor team. He knows smart when he sees it. He also sees the spark in her eyes. She wants him. And having her nearby strokes his ego. It's not like anything will come of it, she's so far from his type. But there's something unsettling about Mary Margaret Flynn, like she can see through his bullshit in a way no one else ever bothered to do.
Maggie realizes that her crush on Michael is all but hopeless. He's a self-absorbed womanizer. But beneath that cool exterior, she's seen the man he can be and she's sure that love can bring that out. In the meantime, she's content to work with him.

Pandora Spocks writes in this delightful way that sucks me right in and forces me to fall in love with the characters. (If you haven't read Luke and Bella: Two Streets Over, do it now.) This book is about irresistible attraction. Maggie plans to work for the district attorney's office upon graduation from law school, but she finds Michael Rannigan at a job fair and wins a job offer from his prestigious firm. They work together, fighting sexual tension while he dates a parade of Barbie Dolls, and leading up to a finish that left me pining for the next episode. The book feels good when you read it. The author creates characters who live in the reader's heart. And the sexy parts are hot too.
In Rannigan's Redemption you are given a taste of what it's like for new lawyers as they step out into the 'legal world.' This story is primarily about Maggie who thought she knew exactly where she wanted to work, but found herself taking a huge detour when offered a job at a high-profile firm. It's not only the firm that's high profile, so is the partner who hires her. Michael Rannigan is a player who finds himself intrigued by Maggie from the moment she tells him at a job fair that he made a mistake in one of his cases. Ms. Spock takes us on a wild ride through their working and personal lives. When the two become entwined sparks definitely fly. Be forewarned, this gets quite spicy. If you like well rounded characters and a good serving of spice, you'll love Rannigan's Redemption
The first volume of a trilogy, this book focuses on a newly minted lawyer named Maggie and her boss, Michael Rannigan. Rannigan is something of a player and doesn't know quite what to make of just how much he likes Maggie. This book is excellent. I don't even really like romance novels all that much, but this one is really well-done. The writing is clean, and the characters are vibrant and interesting. The sex is explicit and super hot, fyi, and the emotions are strong. Spocks definitely knows how to bring the spice and tug on the heartstrings at the same time. I love how confident, competent, and honest Maggie is, and I enjoy Michael's sweet side that only Maggie seems to bring out in him. The ending definitely leaves me anxious for the next installment.
