Leather Pants is book two in the Happy Pants series by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff. Mimi Jean is one of those authors that can write in any genre and every single book is unique, fun, full of surprises and always, we get our Happy Ever After. Some books are darker, some will make you smile, and ALL are amazing.

Everybody loves cookies, right? What if the cookie “loved” you back? Better yet, what if that cookie helped you find your true love? Who knew when Judge Sarah Rae Alma ate that cookie that her life was about to turn a drastic u-turn from staid and proper, hard-nosed judge to lovestruck woman who finally took a chance on love and living free?

Court has officially come to order and Sarah must summon all of her wits when leather-clad, rocker-bad boy, Colt Young once again enters her court. Last time

I fell in love with Ms. Pamfiloff's style in the first book of this series and I can honestly say she didn't disappoint with this second installment.

I'll admit, when Colt and Sarah hooked up at the very beginning, I had my doubts. You know, I need to feel that connection between my hero and heroine, and not just a sexual one. But then it all turned so very interesting. You may expect LOL-rom-com, but I gotta tell you, this book is so much more. After a few chapters, it turns into something way d

Leather Pants is a fantastic rom-com written in the inimitable style of the wonderful Ms Pamfiloff. I had a stomach ache reading this book because I was laughing so hard. There are some wonderful authors writing in this genre and Mimi is definitely at the top of that list. This is the third book I've read of hers and she is an expert at penning uproariously funny stories with witty banter and plenty of hysterical scenes. My husband pretty much hates it when I read one of her books because I can' ...more

Leigh's review:

What amazes me about Mimi as an author is her ability to write so many different series, all with a different feel, and yet still retain that quality which makes her books so clearly identifiable as hers. She writes of darkly evil kings. She writes of bat-shit crazy gods and goddesses. She writes of sweet romances with a touch of magic. And they all have her signature stamp on them that makes them irresistible.

Leather Pants undeniably falls in to the fun and magical romance catego

I am in LOVE with rockstar Colton Young, our leather-pants clad hero of Mimi Jean Pamfiloff's newest installment of the Happy Pants series, Leather Pants.
Judge Sarah Rae Alma aka "The Hammer" HATES bad boys with a passion and she especially hates Colt for turning her from a razor sharp, intelligent woman to a stuttering dope the tabloid press likes to call "Judge Alma-drool" "Judge All-buttered-up" and "Judge All-but-spread-her-legs". So when Colt ends up in her courtroom again, Sarah is ready

As usual Mimi has another great story here. I loved how Sarah & Colton came together. I also like she showed how Colton loved his music and that when he went to parties that was "work" and there was another side to him. It makes me think about other celebrities and how they are just people putting on an act, but that hopefully they are just down to earth people like Mimi and I. I have really enjoyed all of Mimi's books and look forward to Skinny Pants❤️ ...more

Loved Colton and Sarah! Sarah is a judge who lusts after Colt, the rock star in leather pants, who comes into her court for the second time. Ms. Luci gives her one of her cookies for her birthday and five minutes later she is having sex in the bathroom of the bar with Colt. Can she avoid serving prison time when she is blackmailed by another judge? Or will Colt save her?

Wow Mimi has penned yet another amazing addition to this series, this one kept me captivated and on the edge of my seat throughout.

I rarely find a really funny read. For a book to make me actually laugh hard through the writing is a big achievement and this one certainly nailed it ...I absolutely loved the humour, there were so many seriously funny laugh out loud and even snorting moments - I really wish I could quote them,

Woo hoo.
Another great read from the amazing Mimi!
Thank you for allowing me to read an ARC of this, the latest book in the Happy Pants series.
This, although it contains Mimi's normal humor, has a slightly more serious side to it due to the character's circumstances. Sarah is a high court judge, and the sexy man of her dreams in her courthouse is Colt, the bad boy of rock and roll. Surely these two can't make a life together, they are worlds apart.
Trouble is Ms Luci and her cookies get involved

With a title like Leather Pants, how can you go wrong? You can’t! Mimi Jean Pamfiloff’s latest release has it all. It’s sassy and funny, it’s serious and digs deep, and last but not least, it has the happily ever after resolution I crave. Oh, and did I mention it has a rock star who rocks the leather pants? Of course it does.

The second book in the Happy Pants Café series features the Honorable Sarah Rae Alma and mega rocker and hottie extraordinaire, Colton Young. From the start, this couple is

I'm a huge fan of Pamfiloff, and this book was everything I love about her writing. She took a simple concept, looking beneath the surface of a person, and turned it into a mesmerizing story full of drama, intrigue and of course love. I'm always invested in her stories, but this was the first time I felt a personal connection to one of them.

Pamfiloff writes about Colt Young, hot rock star who is constantly in trouble. He lands in front of Judge Sarah Alma for the second time. Sarah can't seem t

Mimi does it again!!!
Judge Alma's reaction to Colt in her court room is hilarious. She can't seem to help but put her foot in her mouth over and over.
It's sad how Colt can't remember Sarah after their club encounter but he's pretty rude when she confronts him about it. She never really seems to react to the cruel notes he makes about her in his notebook, either.
Something crazy happens halfway through the book and I couldn't help wonder what could possibly happen next! But, Mimi doesn't disappo

This book is proof that Mimi Jean Pamifiloff can write her interpretation of the phonebook and make it entertaining. I don't usually enjoy reading Rock Star romance tropes but once again Mimi Jean has make something I don't usually enjoy it into an enjoyable read. Her style of writing is always so full of humor and romance that it makes the angst more palatable, for me atleast to much angst and it depresses the fuck out me. But Mimi doesn't do that she has perfectly balanced books.

I have a read a lot books in my time but it's very few where a character or characters stick with me. Ok maybe relate to easily as well.

Sarah Alma and Colton Young are absolutely, complete opposites. She's the responsible, straight and narrow type of girl, ok Judge(for real judge with gavel and the big black mumu). Colt is the bad boy in hot sexy leather pants that make me wonder if there's any triple stitching involved.....(evil woman Mimi Jean

I loved Colt and Sarah's story...this series always makes me feel so good as I turn the last page.
The characters are funny and real and you can't help but feel anxious as the events that bring them together unfold. There were a few in this one that really caught me by surprise, what a delight, I absolutely love it when you can't predict what will happen next!

As part of the ARC team, I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.

This book takes you on a wild ride that starts in court and ends in a limo (and a lot of laughs and angst in between). This is the second book in the "Happy Pants Cafe" series. It can be read as a standalone; however, I recommend you also read the first book too.

Love has been elusive for Sarah. Colton, the residents rockstar in this book, is jaded and finds it hard to trust others. Can two people who don't play well with others find love? The only flaw that I can see in this book is why don't c

Leather pants that leave nothing to the imagination. Hazel eyes that see right through you. Handsome features that generate a charisma to the female gender none can escape. Yes, that is Colton Young, rock star extraordinaire! And now he is in trouble with the Law once again.

So, what does a judge wear under that black robe???? Sarah's nightmare is that one day she will walk into Court and people will notice she is completely naked under her robe. The Hammer's reputation would be positively ruined

Everyone needs happy (leather) pants and bring the cookies! This book has 2 levels for folks that enjoy both light reading and occasional reflection (nothing that will make your brain overheat though). Leather Pants is a quick fun read full of well developed characters and great elements like a rumored magic cookie that helps you find your true love and delicious romantic and sexual tension.

There is also a bit deeper introspective angle where polar opposites attract, good girl vs bad boy, you c

Mimi Jean never ceases to amaze me with the story lines that she comes up with! Leather pants is a great read not only will it make you laugh in the usual Mimi fashion but it will also make you tear up in places. Sara and Colt are made each other even if Sara doesn't want to admit it. He's a rock star with the typical bad boy image. She's an uptight judge who doesn't know how to let lose. Can this judge show this bad boy that there's more to life than fame and fortune? Can this bad boy show this ...more
This was so much better than I expected. I was a few chapters in when I realized I was reading the series out of order and I had missed a book. I almost quit then to come back to it after I read the previous one. Also I wasn't really liking Sarah at first, but I'm seriously glad I kept going because it didn't take long to get sucked into the story. I should have never doubted Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, the woman knows what she's doing.

Mimi Jean fast became a one-click author for me. She has a way of writing fun loving witty stories that have you laughing and glad that the two characters get together and always have a happy ever after.

Colton likes to follow rules at times, well basically his rule, “I wrote a song for you. And by musician law, that makes you my property.” Colt has an ego, “besides, I would never name my p***s anything that included the word little. That would be misleading.” This book was filled with so much humor, that it was a good time to read.
