4/4.5 Stars!!

I just love a good book with witty banter and HOT sex!

Here I am reading the book.....I burned lots of calories! Yay!

Gabby and Braden are both lawyers. Gabby is a public defender and Braden is the assistant DA. Needless to say, they face each other in court a lot. The story is told from Gabby's POV. The scenes from the courtroom were some of my favorite. Some of the cases they tried...

Does that really happen? Regardless, it gave me a good laugh. Braden and Gabby have had their eye o
4,5 Attractive Stars.
Gabrielle is a public defender and Braden is an assistant district attorney, which means that they face each other many times in court. And it always seems more or less like this:


All their cases are completely nuts and they are always fighting against each other. Work speaking, obviously.
And that would be extremely easy if they weren’t completely attracted by each other.
One day they decide to “cut the crap” and start dating. And guess what? They are extremely compatible

DNF at 52%. I don't usually rate or review books I DNF, but I just can't hold it in.

It started out fresh and promising, and I was so eager to get to readin'! The concept is decent, the dialogue started out relatively funny and the characters were likeable (again, in the beginning). But. But, but but... Then it took a turn (view spoiler).

Am I in the Twilight Zone? How is anyone giving this book anything above 2 stars? Everyone's reviews are saying how the first half of the book was good and then the second half was bad. No. The second half was so terrible you didn't realize how shit the first half was. This was the most contrived, foolish, unrealistic book I've read since On Dublin Street.

How Cute was this!!! I was really in the mood for something easy and cute and this one definitely fit the bill.. but it was also very sexy and absolutely hilarious.. The dialog was so witty and the additional side characters made everything twice as fun. I laughed out loud several times with tears rolling down my face... especially with little Bruno and his excessive humping..

Yep, a perfect sexy, steamy, hilarious rom com with ZERO angst! 2 lawyers on completely even playing fields, both have m

Why are late 20s early 30s addressing and referring to each other as Mr and Ms??

- I had to get the hell out of there. I went to grab lunch before I grabbed Mr. Pierce and found out if he tasted as good as he smelled. Jesus! I felt like I needed a cold shower.

- “You were right. That was pretty good,” Mr. Pierce said, handing me the order again. His hand brushed against mine this time and I jumped like I had just stuck my finger in a socket.

I had to find a sex partner that didn’t require batteries

This was going to be a higher rating but for the last 10%. I just felt it bordered on the ridiculous…. But for the rest of the book there were some real LOL moments. The sex was hot.

There were also lots of books and bookshelves everywhere. I loved books. I also loved people who loved books.

I liked that they were both, socially, on an even setting. None of the poor little girl, overcome with fear about not knowing which

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review, and I think I am about as frustrated after reading this ARC as I have ever been. I stayed up half the night to finish this book because it, quite frankly, would not let me put it down. Did I mention I’m frustrated? Extremely Frustrated! Is there a stronger word than “frustrated?” Why, you may ask? Because the book isn’t being released for three more days, I cannot share my copy with anyone, and I have NO ONE to talk to about it. Frustrated, I ...more
And there were plenty of sexy, appreciative, erotic, even romantic, things I could have said at that moment, but instead I looked him deeply in the crotch and said, “I’m not sure that’s going to fit.”

It was so witty, smart, funny!

Honestly, I haven't read such an entertaining book in quite a while.

I love Mr. Pierce aka Braden aka Harvard and Ms. Ginsberg/Gabrielle/Yale! :D

I chose this book because I was in dire need of laughing after my recent reads. Guided by some of the reviews, I expected the first half to be very funny (and truly, it made me laugh out loud) and the second half to be flat and average (which it was). Probably more a 3 star than 4, but I got my laughs and I loved the original way the H/h romance started, as well as their witty friends. I'll read the next one.

What a fantastic book!!! This is a must read without a doubt. I had just read a very emotional book that left me frustrated and with a massive book funk, and after ranting for about an hour on GR, a friend from this site recommended The Law of Attraction and as soon as I started reading it my spirits lifted and my mood got brighter.

4 stars

Gabrielle and Braden are two laywers who start to date. But not everyone is happy these two have hooked up.

I loved all the characters, I found the court cases hilarious, I loved the heroines witty sense of humour. My 4 star is because as much as I enjoyed reading this book, I wasn't feeling a deep love connection between the couple.

My favourite romance books are ones like this that has me grinning from ear to ear with a good dose of hot sweaty monkey sex. I would recommend this book
4.5★'s - What a great, refreshing read. Someone posted that this book was being compared to Wallbanger and Tangled so I scooped it up. I can see why there are comparisons and I have to say, like those books, I was pleasantly surprised and smiling the entire time I was reading. I loved, loved, loved that there was no angst! These two people were attracted to each other, worked up a deal and then just worked as a couple. Getting to that deal was fantastic! The banter was brilliant!! I loved both c ...more

I love lawyer theme books, I don't know why. Love the cover and the reviews are raving. Ah, I'm marking it!

A funny, hot, and sexy new release from N.M. Silber

Once upon a time two lawyers fell in love across a courtroom …

Gabrielle Ginsberg was a public defender with plenty of nerve and Braden Pierce was an assistant district attorney with a whole lot of swagger. Gabrielle wanted Braden and Braden wanted Gabrielle.
And Cameron wanted Gabrielle.
And Marla wanted Braden.
And Cole wanted Gabrielle.

So, I heard this book being compared to Tangled and Wallbanger, which are two of my all-time favorites, meaning I had to check this book out. N.M. Silber was kind enough to give me a copy for review and that is how I ended up staying up till three in the morning reading only to wake up six hours later just to finish it. This book was crazy addicting and not just because it was hilarious, which it definitely was. I don’t know if it was the witty banter, the hot scenes, or the awesome characters t ...more

You guys, do you know how long it's been since I read one of these on purpose? What is "one of these", you say? Why, I'm so glad you asked. "These" are books I get for free from this website called BookBub. They're usually of the sultry, smutty, romantic variety, and how bad the book is can be determined by how bad the cover is. Which is why I expected this book to be at least two stars, but alas. Unlike many of the other one star books I've read over the past year or so, these, I get into knowi ...more

Need some laughs and a hot read? This is it. Definitely sexy, HOT, funny (often LOL funny), so damn sweet at times and very entertaining with a little bit of a mystery thrown in. Between outrageous legal dramas in the courtroom there’s major eye lusting and sparks fly between Public Defender/Gabrielle (26 yrs) and Assistant District Attorney/Braden (27 yrs) as these two face each other daily in court. Love a good legal romance – those lawyers, full of quick wit and snarky banter. During a co-wor ...more

This book was laugh-out-loud funny, sexy, and there was even some mystery and suspense. With a book with all of these qualities, you know it’s going to be good!

I LOVED Gabrielle and Braden! Gabrielle is a public defender in the city of Philadelphia. She’s funny, a little socially awkward, and independent even though she comes from wealthy family. She’s had a crush on Braden for the past couple of months, but she doesn’t want to be one-night stand to him. Braden is an assistant district attorney

Gabrielle and Braden

How did I not know this was book 1 of 2? Darnit!! Full review on Fiction Vixen Book Reviews

Gabrielle Ginsberg is a public defender and Braden Pierce is an ADA. The two spend a lot of time together facing off in the courtroom. Away from the courtroom their lives couldn’t be more opposite. Braden is a manwhore and Gabrielle is on a slight dating/sex draught. Gabrielle has always been attracted to Braden but she wants more than a one night stand and she has never seen him do any

I loved this book so much! I laughed out loud so many times and I fell in love with Gabrielle and Braden. They are one the best couples I have ever seen in a romance novel. They are cute and hot at the same time. I loved watching them fall in love and I liked the fact that they didn't cheat on each other or fight all the time. I don't mind that the book ended in a cliffhanger because it was just about the mystery in the book not about their relationship, although I'm dying to know who wrote the ...more

This book is nuts. The pacing, the characters, the dialogues, everything. And I kind of loved it? I wasn't sure if I was supposed to dislike it because I was too busy laughing my ass off to figure it out.

Let me state something. This book has no cheating, no slut-shaming, no alpha male bullshit, no dumb misunderstandings, no dubious consent, or any of the things that usually make these kinds of books not okay.

But it is nuts. Gabrielle and Braden don't really miss most steps on their relationship

If you liked Emma Chase's Tangled and Tara's Chocolate Lovers Series, The Law of Attraction is a treat!
I had a blast reading it, and thank God I was alone (sort of), while reading it, because I just couldn't help myself and laughed my ass off! How can you not laugh when the author puts sex, wall and a horny chiwawa together in a scene?? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Believe me, I'm laughing here just remembering it!

Gabrielle and Braden are two lawyers that work together and they had eyes for each

I was fortunate to be one of Ms. Silber's beta readers and was given the book for free in exchange for an honest review. This is truly a great read and one that impressed me from the very beginning as it was extremely well written. Hard to believe that this is Ms. Silber's debut book. The characters were very easy to get to know and fall for. Reading this story made me feel like I was watching this unfold, not just reading it. I felt like I was in the story and had a front row seat! Loved just h ...more

I so loved this book so much. It was the funniest, enjoyable romance ever, I so loved all the character so much, especially Gabrielle and Braden. Such a great couple they were. It also concluded with all their close working friends, and two of them are infant crazed in love with them. I can't wait to read the second book.

I am still laughing at the hilarious antics that rule this story of lawyer love by new to me author N.M. Silber. The Law of Attraction tells the story of a prosecutor Braden and a public defender Gabrielle who have been meeting across the courtroom for six months. He is a bit of a player and she isn't. The attraction is there but she informs him that she wants more than “...a one nighter with a meal plan.” Braden meets her challenge and they start to date. But someone isn't happy about that and ...more

4.5 stars!!

I really liked this book! It was funny, sweet and sexy. The sex was HOT!!

Braden and Gabrielle are both lawyers working on opposite sides, Braden is with the prosecution and Gabrielle for the defense. They know each other from court but their friends (who are also lawyers) help them get together.

I smiled a lot and laughed out loud! A definite recommend. There is a cliffie at the end as all things are not solved but not harsh. So I look forward to book 2 and hopefully I don't have to
DNF @ 55%. What did I just read. Are these supposed to be mid-late 20 somethings? Because all I got sounded like a bunch of out of high school, college freshman characters who obviously don't act their age. It was slightly funny in the beginning but then the heroine's narrative got actually really annoying. The writing got on my nerves too, I don't need everything spelled out with the use of parentheses to understand the characters thoughts. It veered into the ridiculous with the rehash of the H ...more
