Derek Sage doesn’t mix business with pleasure—certainly not after he’s been burned. Being one of the top plaintiff’s attorneys in the Tampa Bay area requires focus and he can’t afford to lose that focus again. But a difficult case has Derek looking to a new attorney for assistance and she brings more than her legal expertise to the table.

Jajajaja es horrible. Da risa las reacciones tan exageradas de los protagonistas.

It's hot! It's steamy! It's sexy!
Derek, an attorney for a prestigious law firm, has sworn off dating co-workers. No more mixing business with pleasure after his last disaster.
Raina, a new attorney at the law firm, is everything Derek wants in a woman. Is he willing to bend his rules for a chance at love?
I loved this story! There was an instant attraction between Derek and Raina that you could completely feel. As much as they tried to put up a wall, you knew it was going to crumble quickly. The

I am a huge Jessica Jayne fan and have read all of her books, and let me tell you that this one doesn’t disappoint! It has all of the elements that make for a steamy contemporary adult book. One of the things that I enjoyed most was the silly and sometimes sarcastic banter between Derek and Raina.

Raina is a new attorney in the law firm that Derek works with. She not only possesses beauty, but she’s extremely intelligent, and although her Mother filled her head growing up with false ideas of wher

Legal Desire is a quick read with some serious steam.

Derek had been burned before and is no longer looking for love. He doesn't mix work and pleasure. He runs everything by the book until Raina.

Raina is gorgeous, smart and going to be a big problem for Derek's rules. Their chemistry is off the charts. Their sexual appetite can't be quenched.

I enjoyed it, but I wanted more. It ended too soon.

Un libro corto de 100 páginas pero que me aburrió.
La relación entre ellos muy apresurada, me salté al final y la historia desde el principio ya era predecible así que no tuve sorpresas. El final me pareció muy simple.
Un libro que no pasa nada si se deja de leer. Le doy 2 estrellitas.
0.000000000001 star

De lo pero en desarrollo de historia que e leido en años. No tengo palabras para enfatizar lo malo que es este libro, por favor!!!!

Y ese final en que estaba pensando la escritora de este libro.

I think I secretly have a thing for high powered lawyer types or something, because almost every hot alpha guy attorney romance I read I kinda just like, or at the very least I like the guy. So when this book came my way I was completely on board with diving right into it.

So after reading this book I will say one thing that is for sure, my streak with hot alpha lawyers is still going on. I really liked Derek , he

Derek Sage is a young plaintiff lawyer, all business and no pleasure, at least nothing with a commitment since being burned. Acquiring a new case, defending a rapist who happens to be one of the founding partner’s nephews, he asks for some legal expertise from one of his firm’s newest attorneys.
Raina Dillon has spent years dealing with the worst thugs of the streets while working in the public defender’s office. Her upward move to one of Tampa Bay’s top-notch law firms was just the career move s

When we are introduced to the insatiable Derek Sage, you cannot help be drawn to his sexy but straight to the point nature. After being burned in the past, he has always had the motto of not mixing business with pleasure, until the beautiful Raina Dillon walks into the firm, he is ready to throw that all away.

Jessica Jayne does a great job in creating chemistry between the two, leaving readers wanting more. When Raina throws herself at Derek after working together one long night, the chemistry b
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
There was one thing that I did not like about this one. There was so much hot chemistry, sexy flirtations, one on one, smoldering moments, and enough steam to fill a sauna, but it was over just too darn fast. This was a quick read. All the above kept you attached to the pages all the way to the end and wanting more of the alpha high powered attorney.

There were things that just simply had you gravitate to Derek. Being alpha, hot, sexy, smart, and male were just the obvious things on the surface.

I love insta-lust. That sudden spark of chemistry... The sudden energy pulling the hero and heroine together... The moment when you know that the hero would do anything to be with the heroine, even if it means breaking his own rules. That moment was what sucked me in and would not let me go until I finished the novella. Legal Desire had a little bit of everything from a sizzling office romance to just the smallest hint of thriller. The characters were fun to meet and get to know. I especially lo ...more

4 Stars!

Short. Sexy. Sweet. Passionate. This book was the perfect read for a warm sizzling afternoon. Jessica Jayne jumps right into the action in this book and doesn't skip a beat in this love story until the very last word. I swooned. I smiled. I fell in love.

This is Derek and Raina's story. He doesn't fall or hook up with colleagues anymore but one look and moment with Raina is going to change all of that. She is new to the office and trying to get her footing. Will they take a chance on love

This book was smokin! It grabs you right from the beginning and keeps you involved and interested right to the very last page. My only wish is that it would have been longer because I felt that there was a whole lot more we could have learned about the couple and experienced with them. Derek has been burnt before while mixing business with pleasure but his rule may fall quickly when he meets Raina. Derek needs to decide if rules are made to be broken when it could mean finding the woman of his d ...more
