This wasn't bad and could have been better had Ms. Foster not rushed the ending. She built up the story for 300 pages and then wrapped everything up in a neat little bow in the last 25 pages. I didn't understand why she did this. It was like she had a page limit that she couldn't go over. I enjoyed the interplay between the characters especially some of the minor characters. You definitely should read Ms. Foster's earlier book, Jude's Law before this book as it explains how the two lead characte ...more

Recommends it for: People who read Jude's Law
(From first read 11/18/09) Let me start by saying I didn't read the first book in the series. I had no real connection to the whole sister's storyline. I liked the Ashley character but Quinton is just a bit too much if you know what I mean. Not bad overall, but not great either.

*New review*
I'm stuck between 3.5 and 4 stars. For now it gets the benefit of the doubt. Had you asked me 90% of the way through the book it would have been a solid four stars. But the last 25 pages are just so rushed and

Recommends it for: everyone
Quinton Murphy knows what he likes and what he likes is Ashley Miles, May's best friend. But Ashley is willful, stubborn and has a plan for her life. She works hard and he knows he doesn't factor into her future. Good thing he's as stubborn as she is because he wants her in his life and he is going to make her realize that she can have her future and he can be a part of it. But he's not counting on how protective she is going to be of her heart. He knows she is hiding something from him and he w ...more
Ridiculously, unabashedly, over-the-moon romantic. A lot of good humor and interesting characters.
I could've done without all the reference to cage fighting. I looked it up and even small boys get involved in this! It's a very stupid, violent, so-called sport for idiot men and boys. One of the few rules is no fingers gouging in any orifice. I guess that describes this ridiculous… I don't even know what to call it.

Quentin Murphy very rich handsome blah, blah, blah. I enjoyed his extremely romant

Murphy’s Law by Lori Foster is a sexy and stunning contemporary romance that you won’t soon forget. This book is a nice, light read and it is highly entertaining!

Ashley Miles does not need another distraction in her life. Working two jobs, going to school and being maid of honor in her best friend’s wedding is about all she can handle at the moment. Yet Quinton Murphy walks into her life and stirs up all kinds of feelings. He’s successful, gorgeous and has all the right moves. Being the assertiv

After reading Jude's Law, I was so excited to read this book and was not disappointed. Quinton & Ashley meet in the first book of the series (Jude's Law) and we see there is some chemistry between them but since that book is not about them we don't see too much of the story developing.

While this book is about them, we still get to see Jude, May, Denny, and the others we met in book 1. That's why I love a good series and especially Lori Foster series novels, because we get to have such a good

Recommends it for: Great Fun Romance Lovers
it's been awhile since i read a Lori Foster novel. i forgot how fun and sensual her novels are. i loved this story about Ashley and Quinton. they had such a fun and cute relationship. i loved how Ashley was a little hard to get and how determined Quinton was at getting her. there was even a little suspense in this novel and it didn't overshadow the romance. i hate when that happens. i also loved the side characters. everyone was well developed and made the main characters just that much more fun ...more
Now this is the Lori Foster I'm use to...I knew Ashley had the better story. I love her character. I love what's she's been through andhow she managed to come out tough as nails, but still able to love and beloved. This one was one of the good one!
Amy Butterbaugh
This story about two different people was an excellent. Lori Foster did a good job putting this one together,
Ashley a girl who wanted to work for everything that she had in life. And who came from the wrong side of the tracks not knowing at the time who her father was but she did have a best friend who she loved like a sister and they got along great
Then came the man into her life who was rich and had his own company. He fell in love with her But she didn't plan on what came to pass between

I hope a book.comes out for tim or denny. I loved these books.
This is a good contemporary romance. Handsome, rich, alpha-male with a heart of gold. Fiesty, smart heroine who doesn't want to get involved, but can't resist. Nothing new here, but well written.

Characters: B Better than the book before this one (which was Jude's Law). Just enough interesting characters to add to the plot, but not too many to confuse things.

Plot: B+ Some danger to bring folks together, believable.

Sexiness: B+ Just what I like - some detail and lots of heavy breathing without goi
okay its a toss up as to who I like more... Jude Jamison from Jude's Law or Quinton Murphy from this book... they are both amazing guys. But to me any guy who gives his time to children gets a bonus points. *giggles*

What I liked most about this guy is his way of trying to give Ashley the independence she so desperately wants and needs while trying to give her everything he wishes she'd let him without actually giving her anything... hard to figure that one out but yea read the book to get it...
An interesting follow-up to Jude's Law. I'd been circling around this series on Booksfree and Paperbackswap and finally found the first book at the library and thought it was okay.
Ashley Mills is a strong-willed woman who left a patently dysfunctional home at an early age and is no putting herself through school while working two jobs. She has also attracted the attention of the wealthy Quinton Murphy to whom she is also attracted. But she doesn't want lust, she wants a life, with a degree and

Read Jude's Law first. This story starts days after that book ends.

Ashley is a take charge, take care of herself kind of gal. She works two jobs and is going to college to become a nurse. Quinton is silver spoon filthy rich and in control of everything around him. He has an office where Ashley works on the cleaning crew and they have bumped into each other on occeasion. OK, they have liplocked on occeasion too. They both feel the attraction, but Ashley is leary to to how rich he is. Ashley needs
Foster isn’t on my list of favorites, but she’s a safe writer. With my husband being out of town a lot, safe is really important. Foster writes big, protective, possessive, alpha male heroes. They are always unbelievably handsome, rich, and perfect. The baddies in her books tend to act from afar and end up being a stalker, ex-boyfriend, or a jealous girl. They only show up at the end of the book for a brief two seconds before getting caught. Foster’s books are a bit formulaic in this way, but th ...more
MURPHY'S LAW - LAW SERIE #2- (Quinton and Ashley) - Ashley wants her independence and Quinton wants Ashley -

Anything That Can Go Wrong . . .
Nothing is going to go wrong. Ashley Miles has worked too hard for her independence to let some Bentley-driving hunk named Quinton Murphy interfere with her plans -- or her freedom. Yes, the chemistry is phenomenal. Kind of scary, actually. But that s it. NO emotional commitments.

I already read Jude's Law last year and I was happy to start this one. I liked the continuity of the story, we get to meet Jude and May while they're having their wedding. Coming to Quinton and Ashley, something didn't sit right with me. As unusual their characters are but they didn't feel like the 'it' couple. However, I liked some parts of them trying to work on their trust issues.

Another thing I felt unnecessary was Elton, the big bad, coming after Ashley. I just felt these two have their han
I couldn't finish this book. While Ashley's comments and attitude are sometimes funny and moving, the he-man behavior of both Quinton and Denny just got on my nerves. Not enough that they try to treat her like a child when it comes to her safety, because a woman would be obviously unable to take care if herself; but it was especially Quinton's attitude that rubbed me the wrong way: Ashley's determined to make it on her own, but all he can think of is how to get that attitude out of her, so he ca ...more

Totally enjoyed this refreshingly real-feel romance. My first Lori Foster's but won't be my last for certain.

The followup to Jude's Law centers around May's best friend, Ashley Miles, who has fought long and hard to be independent and not count on anyone but herself. Her independence is threatened by the wealthy business owner she meets in the building she cleans. Both the immediate attraction between them and his desire to take care of her make her shy away, but when the danger from the previous book centers itself on Ashley, more than her independence is threatened. Wrapping up the loose ends from th ...more
I thought I liked Jude's Law a lot, but I liked this one even better. I don't know if it was the chemistry between Quinton and Ashley or the finale of all the nonsense that started in the first book, but this one was fun, a little nerve racking and hilarious. Ashley was tough without alienating, naive without acting like an airhead, funny without seeming to try to hard. Quinton was pushy without being stalkerish, sweet but not gross and protective but not smothering. I was glad to see Denny, Jud ...more
a quick, entertaining read. I'll read more of this author.

A perfect ending to the law series by Foster. Murphy is a rich, no non-sense, good looking and kind man who is not only attracted but engaged to the eccletic, bright, independent Ashley. The two unlikely pair get on the wrong foot but soon find out they have a very common interest that includes some steamy scenes in the book.

What I enjoyed about this book is that there are some unexpected twists and the evil that lingered from judes law to this book finally comes to a conclusion. Another good r

Now THAT was much better!
Yes, at first, I thought it was going to be just as ridiculous as Jude's Law, but it wasn't. Yes, there was a lot of focus on the suspense, but also enough on Ashley and Murphy that it was enjoyable. It was actually kinda of cute to read a story of 'love at first sight'...I think the ending was great except I do wish Ms Foster would have continued on and given Tim a HEA, even if it was just a short novella. I think his character growth deserved it. But I'm not a writer,
not the best but still good
I have mixed feelings on this book. I like Lori Foster's SBC Fighter series much better. Not sure if the Law series is a short spin off or what. At any rate, I was anxious to read this one and a tad disappointed. Maybe I wanted a new villian and not a continuation from the first book. Also the whole "sisters" storyline was kind of drawn out to me. At any rate, I still enjoyed it (when I give a book 3 stars it means what it means, liked it and would recommend). Just not one of my most favorite of ...more
I love this book! I have read it multiple times and I can't get sick of it.
