I really loved this one.
Public defender Gabrielle Ginsberg has had her eye on sexy assistant district attorney Braden Pierce ever since they started presenting cases against each other six months ago.
He always offered me fair plea bargains, although sometimes he made me work hard for them, and with him it was always a good clean fight, even if it made me want to be a dirty girl. Battling in court could be pretty stimulating to tell you the truth. Sometimes there's a fine line between pissed off and turned on.
Since Braden's known for being a player, Gabrielle isn't willing to pursue anything with him. Until she finds out that he's interested and after a hilarious negotiation on the ground rules for them dating, they decide to go out.
The pair find themselves pretty much instantly smitten with each other, but not in a manufactured way. They've got some ups and downs, including Gabi receiving some notes, warning her that she should break up with Braden. Since Braden's father is a senator and presidential-hopeful and Gabrielle's dad is a high-powered CEO known for working with politicians, the threatening notes could be coming from anyone, and Gabrielle enlists her friends' help to get to the bottom of who's behind them. For the most part, though, Braden and Gabrielle are adorable, and I love them.
Debut author Silber is a former attorney and brought us some hilarious and highly entertaining cases throughout The Law of Attraction
. Some of them were literally laugh-out-loud funny. I really loved the banter between all of the characters in this book, too. The realness of all of them was probably my favorite thing about this story. Gabrielle is strong and sassy, but underneath it all she's vulnerable and wants the guy she likes to like her back. When it's all said and done, though, she has to be who she is, and I love that about her.
Braden's sweet and sexy and swoony.
"But with you, I'm thinking, 'She's so beautiful. I want to wake up with her every morning.'"
And he's a dirty talker, which you know
I love. I loved all of their friends.
Be confident! You are sexy and he wants you. And it's okay for you to want him back. As long as he treats you with respect you can screw his brains out if you want!
There were a few things that I didn't like. It ended too abruptly, and I thought that there would be more conflict than there actually was. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about lack of angst--I just expected more based on the summary. There were also some errors, like overuse of exclamation marks that drove me a little crazy. Also, I was surprised at some of their choices for locations and times for their trysts. You'll know what I mean when you read it.The Law of Attraction
was a sexy, quick read that will satisfy your need for funny and thoughtful. You definitely want to check this one out.
