There are no accidents. People cross paths for a reason.
I’m not sure why ours crossed but within a second, I realized, she could destroy everything.
There’s a code of ethics in some professions where certain relationships are frowned upon.
She’s the prosecutor. I’m the judge. Sleeping with her is all sorts of hell no!

"There's a code of ethics in some professions where certain relationships are frowned upon.' -if reading that on the back covered didn't get me excited to read this book.

Lucy has been going to law school for past few years. She hasn't been out partying it up as focused on finishing school and getting job as assistant district attorney. So she decides to let loose with her best friend Henley. Yes Henley is the type of friend who speaks it how it is makes you laugh as the reader but embarrasses y
I’d never encountered a romance where the main character was a judge, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to read this. The very hot male character is the judge in question, and he reflects the title’s double entendre with style. After all, Your Honor is about his profession and his moral compass.

Both characters struggle with the imposition of the law against their romantic entanglement. They fight their attraction with titanic efforts which meant lots of tension, angst and strained longing.

*****ALERT*** Finally something different!
I've gotten tired of the same story lines over and over. Every book seems like the next. This one was so different. Thank God. Judge and prosecutor was hot AF story and i loved the tension between Jenner and Lucy. I could have used a little more sex but this book was fantastic. Smart. Intelligent. Sexy. Page turner.

5/5 Stars!

Another awesome story by Kristi Pelton! Every time she writes a book, I just can't get enough of it.

The story of Jenner and Lucy starts as a whirlwind romance that then turns very complicated due to their jobs and the code of ethics that comes with them. I couldn't put this book down until I found out what was going to happen next!

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance novel!

I'm going to be honest, this is the first time I read something from Kristi Pelton but I can seriously say that I don't regret taking the chance on reading this :)

This is completely different from the other stories I've read before but it's a good different ;) It's sort of a forbidden HOT tryst affair between a judge, Jenner and a prosecutor, Lucy and in their journey to their HEA is complicated. There are twists, secrets, the hiding of their attraction to one another and then later on their bei

Your Honor is a tennis match that has my head swiveling with the constant back and forth emtional interactions between the hero, Jenner and the heroine, Lucy. Their story is passion-driven, angst-filled, and absolutely forbidden.

World-weary Jenner is a cynic and a stoic whose ice-covered heart begins thawing the moment he meets Lucy. The result of defrosting that long frozen organ is a true treasure. Jenner transforms into the loving, thoughtful man we only catch glimpses of in the opening

This is my first book by Kristi Pelton and it definitely won’t be my last. I loved this book! The characters in this book are absolutely amazing. They hold your attention from the first page right until the last page. The story is emotionally wrecking; it talks about a very sensitive topic and gives light to Lucy’s character.
Jenner is a headstrong judge who’s father is a supreme judge. His life has been directed from his father. When Jenner’s father discovers Lucy in his life he goes to Lucy to

Your Honor is a super steamy, sexy forbidden romance between a judge and a prosecutor. Of all the forbidden workplace romance I've read -- and the list is quite long! -- I've never read a book where the hero is a judge before!

The attraction between Jenner and Lucy is intense, right from the moment of their random meeting. When Lucy walks into his courtroom a few days later, the shock of the situation hits them both, yet they can't help the attraction and connection between them. What follows is

I loved this book. This is a new author to me, and I’ll most certainly will be checking out more of Kristi’s books. This book is steamy and a forbidden romance between a prosecutor and a judge. The attraction between Jenner and Lucy is immediate and so intense upon their first meeting. You can imagine the surprise when Lucy walks into the courtroom that they both felt, it still doesn’t stop their attraction to each other, even when they know it’s against a conflict of ethics. This is such an ama ...more

O.M.G. another HOT book!

Okay I have read several books by Kristi Pelton and I so love her method of writing. This book had me wrapped up in every moment with Jenner and Lucy. How they met...hilarious. How they met again...crazy! Every moment from there on...juicy! This is a great job once again showing a great love story with some hot tension between them by this writer! I hope you have another one ready for release soon Kristi!

A code that must be adhered to but then romance chemistry pulls two people in. What must you do to solve this situation? Does love win through over a career?

A powerful moving story with such emotion and strength, at times unable to know what is going to happen.

A must read and brand new author which I loved.

Justice may be blind, but the chemistry between this judge and assistant attorney is anything but blind! HOT!!! The h is quirky, lovable and relatable. There are some definitely hilarious parts, but also some very real heartfelt moments! This was my first read by Kristi Pelton and will not be my last!

A new to me author that I will certainly read again. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this intense, forbidden romance. Two characters insanely attracted to one another with a code of ethics between them leaves you wondering what is going to happen. I am so glad I took a chance on this story and look forward to reading more by this author.

Fun story

Well written, great characters, solid story with a happily ever after, really loved the epilogue. A judge and an assistant DA....but they didn't know, then there are feelings and complications, a typical story but the details are good. I enjoyed it.

When fate seems to be on your side, and then playing a cruel joke, but proves that fate knows best. They met by chance, but then their careers throw them together, and not in a good way. Now they must choose to follow their chemistry or follow the oaths they took.

This book had me holding it close as well as throwing it across the room, with a few “ABOUT TIME”s mixed in.
