This might very well have been a good book but I kept getting tangled up in the details of the legal profession, which were often wrong.

This is the first book in the series and what a fab start it is. This is a good easy read you'll wanting to get your teeth into. The story is about two people finding their happy ever after whether it be together or separate. The story doesn't have many hot and steamy scenes but still a fab story. This book has a fab ending. I cant wait to read more from
this author in the future.

Highly recommended

Received this as a free read. Good easy read. Not much sex but the story line was endearing with two people finding their HEA with each other.

This was a free read for me. It's a soft erotica with a sweet happily ever after. No complex plot or evil villain. Just two people coming together.

I wasn't a fan of Tony cos he defended criminals but as the story went on u actually warm up to him. The story does get a little long winded but the ending improves greatly. Really good HEA.
