My cock has an appetite.

A huge and very particular appetite: Blonde, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar... (Although, that's a story for another day.)

As a high profile lawyer, I don't have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online.

My rules are simple: One dinner. One night. No repeats.

Part 2: Reasonable Doubt II
Part 3: Reasonable Doubt III
Part 3.1: Extended epilogue


Reasonable Doubt (part 1) is man-whore extraordinaire, attorney and law firm partner, Andrew Hamilton’s story. It follows him six years after gut-wrenching betrayal

When the first five words of the blurb says this: "My cock has an appetite." my index finger gets a little excited.

Andrew has one set of rules; one dinner, one night, no repeats... and no lies. He is quickly making his way through the ladies of the internet spending a week ensuring they who they say they are. But one women he meets online, not on a dating site, seems to pull his attention. She's the only woman not after his cock, not after a relationship... just a little professional assistanc

I admit, I was hesitant to read Reasonable Doubt: Volume 1. I was pretty sure it would be too sexually graphic for my taste, plus how can you possibly connect with characters in less than 100 pages? Or, that was what

My cock has an appetite.That is the first line of the blurb. Once I saw that, I thought I have to read this book! I’m so glad I did! It was very much on the short side, but it was great! Thankfully, we don’t have to wait long for the next installment! Especially after that ending!

This book is so unimaginative that the entire thing could have been cut and pasted from other pieces of shiterature I've previously been offended by.

Is this FSoG fanfic? Because it reads like it is. Complete with the surprise sex where the male lead feels the need to dominate and sublimate the female lead because she’s not acting the way he wants her to.

I’m still trying to figure out which aspect of this book is most offensive; the above-mentioned glorified abusive relationship, or the depicti

Reasonable Doubt is a short novella that needs to be devoured and adored. It’s about a girl called Alyssa and a high profile lawyer who has a penchant for blonde curvy women. He meets them anonymously online, chats and then... Dinner, sex and no repeat.

The main characters are fabulous!

Andrew Hamilton is, "...as sexy as fuck.” Enigmatic, charismatic, and divine, you’ll want to eat him up and rescue him all in one go. He needs control. He needs truth. He needs only one thing from the women he e

=== Spoilers all over whatever comes below ===

What do I think? This was my first thought:



Andrew is a completely skeevy manwhore with hundreds of women on his track record. He hits on them online, fucks them once, then ditches them in such unsufferable manner, that they sure as hell won't be wanting more of the same. An example:
I glance at my watch. "Are you spending the night in this room or do I need to give you cab money to get home?"
"What?"
"Was my question unclear?"

Andrew (aka Thoreau) is a lawyer with a commitment problem. He likes to screw them and then leave them.

Alyssa is the only girl who Andrew considers his friend. She is a spunky lawyer type and a ballet dancer.



The sad part about Alyssa being his only friend is he's never even met her in person.



They met on a website called Lawyer Chat for lawyers. Its a social network only for lawyers and is pretty secretive. It conceals peoples identities so they can discuss things.

First of all, HUGE thanks to Tony for this awesome rec!

Second, this is my first time reading WGW's work but it certainly won't be the last! I loved everything about this novella - the dialogue was witty and sexy! The storyline, even though maybe a bit predictable was great and nicely done! I am hooked! Need book 2 ASAP!

I will try and do a full review later when I am not on my iPad but bottom line is, this is what I call a 'great bang for your buck' (literally!) type book!

Cheers!

Andrew is a high profile lawyer and a playboy. His rules are simple: he meets women online, one dinner, one night and never repeats.
He doesn’t want relationships and don’t tolerate lies. There’s a girl he meets online on a lawyers chat and they start to have some sort of friendship and became close… except that Alyssa’s profile is fake.
When Aubrey (the real girl behind that profile) goes to an interview in his firm as a college intern and Andrew finds out the truth… well, he’s no

Andrew has rules about the women he spends time with:

Until one particular lady, Aubrey, piques his interest and makes him reconsider his rules. Unfortunately for Andrew she has her own agenda when it comes to him.

"I had no idea what the f**k just happened, and only part of me liked it. The other half loved it." Yes, Andrew, you summed up the book for me.

Short, Steamy and Sarcastic.
That is how I would sum up this novella.




"Casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less." That's what our Andrew is interested in, and that's exactly what he's looking for at online dating sites. He is a lawyer who hates liars above everything. He is a man with only one friend Alyssa whom he has never seen face to face. But one interview at his place of work will change everything...

"I look like a man who wants to f*ck you."

Simple as that. The only exception is Alyssa- the 27 year old lawyer who is also completely unattractive (at least that’s what she convinces him) and has no intention to ever meet him in person.
