*J* Too Many Books Too Little Time
3.5--Please Don't Hate Me--Stars!!

But this one fell a little flat for me. I'm afaid it suffered from the dreaded sophomore slump.

I was so excited for this book and more Gabi, Braden, Bruno and the gang. IDK--but this one just wasn't as funny, wasn't as HOT and wasn't as entertaining for me.

I felt like I was being told what was happening and not experiencing and feeling it. I don't remember that being the case in The Law of Attraction.

Home Court Advantage picks up where Law of Attraction left
4 Sweet and Nutty Stars.

In this second book, we have Braden and Gabrielle engaged and trying to start a new life together.
But the unresolved mystery from the first book can’t seem to leave them alone. Finding each other in the middle of a stalker that won’t leave them alone and in the middle of a conspiracy that are trying their best to keep them apart.
So, how can they move ahead where there are people so driven in stepping them back?

First, let me tell you a thing: everyone and everything in

5 Laugh My Ass Off Stars

I have no idea how it happened but I ended up liking this one even better than the first one. This book is funny as hell and I loved reading an entertaining story about a couple that managed to be angst free. I love me some well written drama but once in awhile it's refreshing to read a book that's free of unnecessary misunderstandings. For enjoyment reasons alone I'm giving this one 5 stars. Now onto Lily and Adam's story!

I finished this book yesterday and I'm still laughing; between Gabrielle crazy antics, Bruno's cuteness but larger than life personality and all those ridiculously funny court cases, I just can't help but chuckle every time I remember a scene of this awesome story.

ARC Review

OKAY, now that I have calmed down from being aroused and laughing until tears ran down my face and my bladder almost leaking, I can leave my review.

If you haven't read book 1 well you sure as hell will not understand this one so go one click NOW. Gabrielle and Braden added to their HOT tension and courtroom banter to the point of "OMG, they did not do that there". To add in the fun and excitement they played a board game with friends that will have you gasping for br

“And this is your close friend, Drew?” Derek asked looking at Mark.

“Good buddy... Just hanging out here. Doing guy stuff.”

“Talking about women. And sports. And beer. And uh...” Mark added.

“Condoms,” Drew added and I rolled my eyes. Brilliant.

Conclusion from bk 1 - Loved it, loved it! Mystery solved, lots of laughs (I think even more than in bk 1), a lot of hot sex and good times. And awww… what a happy ending for Gabrielle/Braden…made me have a few goose bumps. G/B will go down as one of my favorite couples read this year. Loved these 2 bks and am p.o’d I have to wait around for the next bk because I WANT IT NOW! Yep, time spent with this sexy, fun group of characters has left me impatient for what’s next.

OMG, this was so funny! I loved Braden, Mark, Adam, Cam, Jess and Gabrielle from the first book and they didn't disappoint with this one. In fact they introduced a few more characters, Lily and really looking forward to reading more about her and Adam in the next book.

The dishes scene where Braden got Gabrielle all hot and bothered was amazing, right then the fire alarm was pulled. I was wondering if that ever happened to June Cleaver.. ha ha! The stalking was interesting, the scene at the bar w

I don't know if I laughed as much at this one as I did at the first one, but it was five stars in my opinion, because it was still very funny and so hot! This one was more romantic than the other one and I thought it worked. I loved the end! The subplot got kind of more complex than I thought it would be, and I wasn't sure about that. One thing I love about this author though, is that her main characters don't fight and break up over stupid things. They work things out like adults. I think she s ...more

I so loved this second book just as much as the first one. I so loved Braden and Gabrielle group of friend and just so happy that they got engaged. I just love their dog Bruno so much. He's just so cute! So happy too. I went to buy the third book, just noticing that I already read it here on good reads. I looked it up noticing the cover that I did enjoy that one too!! Such a fun series!! ...more

Great book, it was hilarious just like the first one, I'm glad we finally figured out who was behind everything. I hope the next books has more on Jess and Cam, and Lily and Adam. I wanna see what happens there.

Great series so far!

If you loved The Law of Attraction....then you will love The Home Court Advantage, N. M. Silber's second book in her Lawyers in Love series. As one who loved The Law of Attraction, I could just stop my review right there and say I loved the book, go read it. But I'm not going to stop there. :-D The Law of Attraction ends when hot Norse-god look alike Braden Pierce pops the question to his court room adversary Gabrielle Ginsberg thinking that staying with her is the best way to kee

Home Court Advantage is Book 2 in the Lawyers In Love series by N.M. Silber. I was offered an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

The hilarious and lovable ensemble is back! Braden, Gabrielle and the gang have returned. There are a few new abettors in their cast of characters, and they’ve upped their antics as well! The witty, sometimes corny, and maybe even a little kitschy dialogue is as fresh and outrageous as ever. You have to be on your toes with this one, because the facetious and sarcast

The Home Court Advantage picks up where we previously left Gabrielle, Braden and the rest of this hilarious gang. This book is just as freakin hilarious and sexy as The Law of Attraction was, if not more. The antics in and out of the court room had me in tears from laughing so hard. Thank god I had already had my baby because if not I would have peed my pants for sure from laughing while picturing everything that was occurring in th

When I read the first installment of this book I never expected to laugh so much.

The first thing I noticed is that I felt related to Gabrielle so much, and the second book just reinforced that belief.

I love N.M’s writing, I don’t feel tired, bored or confused while reading her books, and this is a huge accomplishment in my case because I’m normally pretty hard please (lol).

She uses a lot of legal terms but somehow manages to make you understand them; you don’t feel like you’re missing something

This is another great book in this series!
This book picks up right where The Law of Attraction leaves off. The characters Gabby and Braden have such chemistry together it is a joy to read. Gabby is smart, sexy, funny, quirky and clumsy but that makes her so much more enjoyable. Braden is of course all those things minus the quirky and clumsy part lol . The dynamics within the friendship is hysterical. They play so well off of one another. The group had me laughing out load at their conversations

Author N.M. Silberg knocked it out of the park again!
This book is not only hot but hilarious with a side of drama. Gabriella is smart, beautiful, clumsy & funny. Braden is one smoking hot lawyer who is smitten with Gabriella. This book isn't much about Gabriella & Braden's relationship but more about finding out who is following them which of course puts them in these crazy scenario's . Lots of hot steamy juicy sex. A new couple forms & there's another one that needs to form-I hope to hear more

The Home Court Advantage by: N.M. Silber 4 funny stars

***Arc provided for honest review***

The combination of the cold wine and his hot mouth launched me into orbit and I moaned and bucked my hips like I was doing a horizontal Twerk.

This book had me laughing out loud, it was so funny. The banter between Braden and Gabrielle in the courtroom was great. There are moments where you are thinking no, that really didn’t happen there. The chemistry between the two is so hot you need to hold the book wit
E Kaplan
Five Stars. This is authentic Romantic Comedy, of the variety that really makes you laugh out loud. This book, and the first, Law of Attraction, are two halves of the story of a prosecutor named Braden and a defense attorney named Gabrielle, who face each other in court, handling all kinds of zany cases. Outside the courtroom, their romance, and it really is a romance, is very hot and passionate. If you shy away from very sexy love scenes this won't be for you, but if you like that, you won't be ...more

I absolutely loved it! Braden and Gabrielle are back and better than ever. They're sexy as hell and the crazy antics are laugh out loud funny. And just think, this was only book two of a six part series! I've said it before, and I'll say it again, N.M. Rocks! Her books are the perfect mix of intensity and hilarity. She's the next big thing as far as I'm concerned! I absolutely cannot wait for Legal Briefs to get Adam and Lilys story, let the pigtail pulling commence!
Meagan Wells
So this book leaves off exactly where The Law of Attraction ends. It has the same humor and sexiness as the first book. I loved the chemistry between Gabby and Braden. I also love all the antics that Gabby gets into. She is hilarious. This book is hilarious. I am so looking forward to the 3rd book in this series where we can explore the other characters in the book. I just hope there is more Gabby and Braden because they are hot!

The synopsis alone is hilarious... cannot wait for this to come out...

::UPDATED 11/19/2013::

I read this book in one day, and I really enjoyed it. I am so glad that the author was able to wrap up the "mystery" in this book. I really loved the characters and at one point I was kicked out of the bed b/c I was laughing too hard. I just love the series.

I cannot wait for the next book 'Legal Briefs' I just know that it's going to be just as good as this one.

LOL. I read this at work, in my dorm, when I was supposed to be working.......I read this everywhere. Common trend: each place I read it, people looked at me like I had two heads because I couldn't stop laughing. Um, since when does it make you weird to die of laughter in public places? It's not like I was having sex in a jury deliberation room while there was an ongoing court case outside the door......... ...more

Once again Ms. Silber has delivered a book that will make you laugh out loud, with sexy scenes hot enough to make you sweat. The second book in the series did not let fans down at all in my opinion. In fact, the only thing that disappointed me, was that I would have to wait a few more months for the next book.

“Okay," Adam began, "Now concentrate! This was a real person. White suit!"
"Colonel Sanders!" Lily replied quickly.
"Colonel Sanders? I said it was a real person, not a logo for a chicken joint!"
"He was a real person! If you don't believe me look it up!"
"Whatever! Not Colonel Sanders though. Humor!" he said urgently.
"Steve Martin!" She clapped her hands with joy, obviously believing that they had finally gotten one right.
"No, uh..." He searched for another clue.
"Wait! White suit and humor but not Steve Martin?" She looked crushed.
"I just said no!" He yelled! "Hannibal!"
"Um, uh, Dumbo..." she said with a deeply pensive expression.
"Dumbo?! What the fuck?!"
"Hannibal! Elephants! And before you say it he was real, too, you schmuck!"
"Guess again goddamnit!"
"Anthony Hopkins!" Adam threw down the card and looked like he was going to cry.
"Halley's Comet!" he growled.
"Halley's Comet?! What in the hell do you mean Halley's Comet!"
"Time!" Braden informed them gleefully, wiping tears of laughter out of his eyes.
"Mark Twain! You're an author Christ's sake!" Adam bit out.
"Oh, right! He was from Hannibal, Missouri! What in the hell did Halley's Comet have to do with Mark Twain?!"
"It appeared on the day he was born and the day he died! Duh huh!" Adam said.
"This isn't Trivial fucking Pursuit!" Lily shot back. "Why didn't you say Mississippi or riverboat or frog jumping contest or something besides Halley's Motherfucking Comet?!"
"Because they're all forbidden motherfucking words! Miss 'like a human'!" he yelled.”
“ Okay, this is a fictional character," Lily began. "And he's like a human."
"What?" Adam asked her, looking befuddled. "What the fuck does that mean? He's like a human?" He shook his head and scowled at her.
"He wears clothes!" she said frantically. I had a feeling that this game had Lily on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
"He wears clothes. Great. Well, that narrows it down." The sands of the hourglass were pouring away and Braden, Cam, Jess and I, were laughing our asses off this exchange already.
"And he walks upright!" she added waving her hands frantically.
"I would hope that most of the people in this game walk upright! Give me a real fucking clue already!" Adam had that homicidal look again.
"Duh huh!" she said desperately.
"Hey! All you've told me is that he's a fictional character who wears clothes and walks upright. Don't duh huh me!" he spit out angrily.
"No! No! he says that!" Suddenly she started making barking noises.
"Are you okay?" he asked looking at her like she was nuts.
"Has a place in Florida..." She looked seriously stressed out. I was starting to worry.
"He's retired?" Adam asked, still looking confused.
"He wears bright colored clothes. He tells jokes."
"It sounds like you're describing my Uncle Murray," Adam was shaking his head.
"Time!" I yelled, almost peeing myself I was laughing so hard.
"Goofy! The answer was Goofy!" Lily said with disgust.
"Goofy?! That was the best you could come up with for Goofy?!”
