It's taken law librarian Becky Schrader a long time to stop comparing herself to her family of overachievers and hone in on what she really wants--a normal life, white picket fence and all, Mr. Dream Guy included. But before she gets ahead of herself, her girlfriends convince her she needs to let down her hair for once, meet a hot guy and let the moment take over . . .

Is a 1.5 harsh? Perhaps.

What's really too bad is I feel I've read two middle of the road books from her and there's potential to have a breakout, stand apart book for me. Apparently, the opposite also holds.

This book did nothing for me. And I'm not convinced it was even well written. It felt like a bunch of scenes slapped together with no arc. Let me explain (and don't read further if you, like, care to find out for yourself):

Contrary to what the cover might lead you to believe this is NOT a book about a shy stock photo model who meets a glowing ghost dog that likes to read sad novels.

Unfortunately its also not about a librarian in love. Well I mean tangentially it is, there's a sort of a librarian, a legal librarian at a law firm (which I'm sorry that's just lame and this girl does NO librarian work) and she falls in love with a lawyer who works too much. Like that's the plot, he works too much and she wishes he di

Laws of Attraction, the third entry in Sarah Title’s Librarians in Love series, is a delightfully frothy concoction of a romantic comedy that often had me smiling and, once or twice, laughing out loud.  Mild-mannered legal librarian Becky Schrader is fed up with falling for the wrong guy; she supposes it’s her own fault for constantly looking for Mr. Dream-Guy-picket-fence-and-a-dog, and her best friend is trying to convince her to let her hair down once in a while and have some fun with Mr. ...more
Trigger warnings: shitty parenting, shitty families as a whole, drug abuse.

A cheesy romance novel that involves librarianship and puppers finding their forever homes? Uh, YES TIMES INFINITY. Obviously I was going to be trash for this.

I sped through it and I loved basically every second of it. It was a delight and I'm so glad I stumbled upon this series. MORE PLEASE.

I really love Sarah Title’s books. I love her characters, I love the jokes, I love the settings. I just love them. This was no exception.

I agree with some of the lower rated reviews that the cover totally sucks. Do better, Kensington! What’s wrong with you?!

I had a hard time getting into the book at first, because I found the beginning to be a little slow, but once it entered the office, it got so much better. I really love how realistic Sarah Title’s heroes are and Foster was perfect. Becky was

This was a cute, funny romance. The MCs were great and the secondary characters were just as well written.

I did think she pushed him away for too long and I got annoyed with the denial of their feelings. I guess I would've preferred more time with them together. But that is just my own personal preference, and no reflection on the book.

3.5 Fun, flirty and sexy stars
Fun, flirty and sexy, add in a super hot lawyer with a completely loveable and mushy interior and I was hooked. We have law librarian, Becky Schrader, who is forever making bad choices when it comes to men (all she wants is the white picket fence), so after her most recent breakup her best friend decides she needs a night of debauchery, one night, no holds barred. Enter lumberjack Deke and Becky has the one night stand she was looking for, that is until the new hire

Thanks so much to Kensington for sending me a review copy of this book - what a great birthday present!

I am absolutely in love with this series and purchased the first two books myself. This might be my favorite one yet, though - such a fun, smart, STEAMY romance about a LIBRARIAN! Love everything about it, but the dogs sealed the 5th star for me.

Short story: nah brah, I have no want to finish this book.

Long story: Neither character made decisions - about themselves, their relationship or their communication - believably. It all either felt contrived for the plot or just... ridiculous. The romance didn't feel organic, the attraction fell flat once Becky decided OH NO HE'S HER WORST NIGHTMARE and I just had trouble believing he felt she was worth the hassle.

Librarians and lawyers are two of my favorite professions to read about, if done right. The author clearly did her research and details about Becky and Foster's professional lives were spot-on. However, their romance, loaded with endless internal monologues and stream of consciousness dialogues, was cute but clunky.

Turns out this story isn't just about legal librarian Becky trying to resist the charms of hotshot IP attorney Foster, but there are lots of distracting side characters and family me

I’ve read all of the books in Sarah Title’s Librarians in Love series, and this one is definitely my favorite.

The publisher’s description of the story is a little misleading. At the beginning of the book, Becky’s best friend encourages her to pick up a guy for a one-night stand precisely because Becky has been so focused on achieving a normal life (husband, family, dog, home with a white picket fence) that she keeps settling for the wrong guys. Becky plans to hook up with a completely different

There is something about Sarah Title's writing and characters that I find charming and fun to read. This was no exception, although I thought Becky was rather bitchy at times to the poor hero. But first, the plot - Becky and her best friend Dakota are at a bar and her friend insists she just needs a one night stand to get over another breakup from one more bad relationship pick. Becky is reluctant until a scruffy, sexy man in flannel walks into the bar, and sparks fly. The have hot sex, and she ...more

It took me a week to figure out how to write this review. I’m giving it four stars. It probably could/should have been five, but it lost a full star because I’m not going to be passing this novel around. Laws of Attraction is a well-researched, well-written romance. It ticks almost all the boxes I normally attribute to a great book.

My household is one of thousands who is boycotting the NFL this year. It’s been hard, almost like a death in the family, as Sunday family, food, and football after c

Foster “Deke” Deacon and Becky meet in a bar shortly after Becky’s latest break-up and share an unforgettable night. Becky sneaks out the next morning and Deke is left with nothing but Becky’s first name and the amazing memories she gave him. But Becky wanted nothing more than a night to forget and hopefully reset herself so she stops choosing the wrong kind of guys – professional men who are still living their frat boy glory days. Color her shocked when she meets the new attorney at work and fi ...more

Funny, sassy and sexy. Enjoyable read that entertains the entire time. I appreciated the strength of law librarian Becky is a strong, witty and well rounded lady who hasn't been too scarred by her over-achieving and highly eccentric family. I kept trying to picture what these people looked like and couldn't get anything other than tweed jackets and dark rimmed jackets. Even though their treatment, or ambivalence to Becky, she maintained a frustrated love for parents who completely neglected her ...more
when law librarian becky schrader sets eyes on foster deacon she thinks he's the perfect person to break her streak of jerks who are bad in bed. no more lawyers or stuck up suits who look the part but never come through on marriage and the white picket fence and the 2.5 kids. he's a sexy lumberjack who clearly wants her and fulfills every promise of a good time.

foster isn't looking for a relationship, but his one night with becky was unexpectedly hot. and he's disappointed when he realizes that

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!

I am no stranger to Sarah Title and her work and I have to admit I look forward to her stories.  They are usually fast paced, fun, and of course a little bit sexy.  This story did not disappoint, it was all of the above.

I won't go in to details of the plot as one can guess how this story will play out based on the syno

I really enjoyed this latest in the Librarians in Love series (and the series is not connected so they can be read in any order).

In this book, the librarian is Becky, a law librarian with a major law firm in Dener. Just off another bad breakup, her friend convinces her to go out drinking and try out men who are NOT her type (Becky is obsessed with having a "normal" relationship and a "normal" family since her family is decidedly not normal). She meets a man she thinks is a lumberjack and has one

This was a fun mix of romance with humor. We have a legal librarian, Becky, who suffers from a desire for a normal, white-fence kind of marriage and family. She’s had to endure the contemptuous indifference from the rest of her family who are all genius scientists and disdain her work as “just a librarian.”

She meets a bearded lumberjack-looking guy at a bar and has a night of great sex. And then, you guessed it, the lumberjack is actually a new lawyer at the firm where she works. Foster wants t

Hilarious inner monologues, banter that is fantastically witty, and a smart dialogue that captures your heart...leaving you wanting more.

Becky is sassy, with a quiet intelligence and a giant heart. Foster is both her dream and worst nightmare when it comes to the normal life and family she longs for. They complicated each other and had a chemistry that was heartwarming how Becky was able to help Foster realize that she and his family were his priorities...oh and Starr too. Too cute

Laws of Attraction by Sarah Title could also be called first impression go wrong, no, make that right. This is exactly how the story starts out with law librarian Becky Schrader. She has some hang-ups that were tied to growing up and her family’s treatment. Lumberjack, no make that lawyer, Foster Deacon is easy to like. It’s impossible not to love a big guy who falls for a little ole dog. He has family issues too.

This one is a funny sexy low story between librarian Becky and lawyer Deacon. The plot of the story and how those two meet is so funny. I loved when is so much comedy involved in a book. But the book also has real-life struggle such as family drama and of course broken heart. Becky is such a cute smart cookie with a funny friend it is hard not to like her. Deacon, on the other hand, is likable but like his sister has pointed out was too much his father and I liked that he change that at the end ...more

This was a fun, flirty read that left me smiling and just plain happy. I loved Becky and Foster. Their sassy banter back and forth had me laughing out loud.and their chemistry came to life on the pages.

Wouldn't you know the one time in her life that Becky Schrader lets loose and has a little naughty fun she would hook up with a new associate at the law firm she works at. Luckily being the firm's librarian will limit their interactions. Hopefully. Not if Fostor Deacon has anything to say about it

At first when I started this book I was like "um excuse me, I want to read about librarians, not lawyers," but then I realized the heroine was a librarian for a law firm and I calmed down a little. Plus all the dogs in this book? Omg win!

Of the three in this series, I actually think this one touched on the deepest of topics (a lot of family dynamics, behavior, self-worth, etc.) The story was fun, the pacing was good, and while a lot of times the epilogue is just a tidbit, this one really showed

This book started with a woman in a bar searching for a one-night stand. I did not think this was the book for me. I am so glad I kept reading. The family relationships are strange, but sadly realistic. The dogs are wonderful. The romance was inevitable, but charming. The publisher provided a copy via NetGalley for my voluntary review.
