Wow this book is oozing so much cuteness. The story is so refreshing. It is still romanve book. A younger hero falls in love with older heroine. Lucas has some emotional baggage from his past. Trinity is a selfless heroine.

They both are so wrong for each other and yet when they fall in love, I want to cheer and clapping. Their love story is sweet,cute, fun and heartbreaking. I especially love how refreshing it is to put a different twist to their character development. Instead of the hero grove

Ladies, get ready for some British charm headed your way with Lucas Wright. This man can charm the pants off a man-hater. The way he talked was just as pleasurable as the story itself. I can't wait for the audiobook! He's going to be liked by a lot of readers. He was a good mix of charming, alpha, protective and even had a sensitive side. That's not an easy mix to create but Kate Meader did it!

I enjoyed Trinity Jones as well. She had a unique job as a sommelier, her specialty in Whiskey. She was
Love the cover.

Lucas the British smooth talking jokester transplant meets Trinity at Max's brother's bachelor party. He's instantly smitten and starts a pursuit. Unfortunately it's soon apparent that the biggest obstacle to them being together is the fact that Lucas is representing Tiffany's soon to be ex brother in law in divorce proceedings which is a major conflict of interest. They dance around the attraction until Lucas gets permission from his client and they start up something together.

Here's my review:
I always look forward to Kate Meader's books. I think that she's one of the most underrated authors in the Contemporary Romance genre'.
I was so happy to get my hands on Illegally Yours.
I'm not fond of attorneys in real life, but I've enjoyed the endless possibilities when a Hero or Heroine is an attorney in Romancelandia

I really enjoyed this.

The basic conflict is about the heroine, Trinity, who is super protective of her sister Emily. Emily is going through a very contentious divorce with her husband Brian. Lucas is Brian's lawyer. Lucas and Trinity are madly attracted to each other but them getting together would be a conflict of interest for Lucas.

So a nice little obstacle there. But that isn't where the story really sings, that is just the framework. No, it is the writing for the characters that really make
4.5 stars

Lucas falls for a whiskey sommelier at his friend’s bachelor party, only to discover she’s the sister to his current client’s soon to be ex-wife. Talk about an ethical conundrum!

I’m not usually a fan of the older woman/younger man trope, but Meader won me over with Lucas and Trinity’s quick-witted banter and hot attraction! I loved the sexual tension between the two and admit I giggled when that particular powder keg blew! How Trinity resisted the roguish Lucas as long as she did... Of

If you’re looking for a sexy, unrepentant flirt, and life of the party hero to add some heat to your life, look no further than divorce attorney Lucas Wright of Illegally Yours.

Super smart, inordinately charming and witty, Lucas can have any woman he wants until he meets Trinity Jones, his client’s soon to be ex-sister-in-law. Trinity is smoking hot, strong and independent, super protective of her younger sister and completely irresistible to hotshot Brit, who can’t help but fall for her no mat

I enjoyed this, even after a bit of a slow start. Trinity Jones, whiskey sommelier, and Lucas Wright, divorce lawyer, meet at the bar where Trin works. Lucas is the clown with a larger than life personality. Trinity doesn’t know what to make of him at first, but when they realize that her sister is the opposing party in a divorce he’s handling, things get interesting and yep, you guessed it, romance happens.

I really, really enjoy Ms. Meader’s character work. She’s written some recent fa

This is my fifth Meader book, and I think it's my favorite.

• Trinity - The fiercely independent whiskey sommelier, who played caretaker for everyone except herself.
• Lucas - The life of the party, all around fun guy, and the shark, who represented Trinity's ex-brother-in-law in her sister's divorce.


Because of Lucas' professional association with Trinity's ex-brother-in-law, it would have been unethical for him to pursue a relationship with Trinity. However, circumstan

"She needs to recognize that this path has one destination. Me and Trinity sittin' in a tree. F-U-C . . . You get the idea."

So sue me, I like #ForbiddenRomance and Illegally Yours fits the bill. Imagine the disappointment of discovering the woman that you're in lust with is the sister of your client and off-limits. Seems doable though, right? Well, not if fate keeps throwing you together time and again and she feels the same way. So, then the solution would be to just ride it out, ke
I thoroughly enjoyed Down With Love, the first book of this series, but I have a soft spot for this one as interracial romance is my jam. Add that to the fact that there's so much about family and friendship along with romantic love in this book, I can't help but, well, love it.

I've been reading Kate's books for a couple of years now and I've come to expect her to deliver an engaging read. She didn't disappoint. She never does.

It took a little bit to remember why I did not read Illegally Yours when I first received it as an ARC through Netgalley, but then I researched it when I was 40-50% through the book. It was the original cover not portraying an interracial couple accurately. The current cover is a better representation of Lucas and Trinity, as described in the book. I did enjoy the dynamic between Lucas (hotshot divorce lawyer) and Trinity (sister to Lucas client's Ex) with the sexual te

I enjoyed this mainly coz of the awesome hero. The heroine was a bit too matyr like in the relationship with her user sister, that like the hero it annoyed me. I mean I get it with family it is complicated but she covered for her horrible sister who was horrid to her and her kids too. The hero is 6 years younger to the heroine btw.

How adorable is this book? So much! I love the characters! Of course some of that may be because of the audio version. I'm a sucker for a British accent. (This always makes me think of Love Actually, when the British guy who bombs out with all the girls goes to America and lands Shannon Elizabeth)
Anyway, our hero meets our heroine at a bachelor party. It's a classy affair with whiskey not hookers. She is a sommelier. Fast forward to a few days later and our hero finds himself with his newest c

Cute, amusing, and intimate!

Illegally Yours is a passionate, lighthearted story that takes us back to Chicago and into the lives of the spirited, kindhearted Trinity and the cocky, charming, Lucas as they both discover there's more to life than familial responsibility and work.

The writing is crisp and sharp. The characters are supportive, dependable, and multi-layered. And the plot is an alluring tale full of sizzling attraction, heartfelt emotion, friendship, family, understanding, compromise,
I am so enjoying this series ... this second book features Lucas who I was so curious about from the first book. And this one totally delivered. I love his heroine Trinity - she was strong and independent, a person who takes care of everyone. Sometimes at her own expense. And I adore Lucas - I was so glad to get a chance to know him better. He's one of those characters who is charming, sensitive and witty. I loved learning his back story. And he and Trinity ... they are perfection. I loved how t ...more

Laws of Attraction #2, Another good read from Kate Meader. The mischievous Brit, Lucas Wright, meets his match with whiskey sommelier, Trinity Jones. (I love that she was named for Trinity from The Matrix, my daughter was almost Trinity for the same reason) Told in the alternating first person POV you get an interesting look at both their worlds as they collide.

Lust at first sight and Lucas' smart mouth doesn't help matters in showing off although she seems immune to his charm. Trinit
3.5 stars.
I had a harder time connecting with these characters. While I still rooted for them to be together, I didn’t find myself as invested as I have been with other books I’ve read by Kate Meader. Lucas was sweet and determined to woo Trinity despite being on opposite sides of a divorce case. I liked the progression of their relationship, but at times it felt like it was dragging. I think it also says something that as much as I liked the main characters, the thing that stuck the most with m

In a bar for a bachelor party, Lucas Wright immediately notice the pretty black woman who's hosting the liquor tasting. Whiskey expert Trinity Jones is less impressed with the hotshot divorce lawyer booty shake and his blabbermouth. She categorize him as an overgrown frat boy but she can't deny that Hottie Brit, as she called him in her mind, is annoyingly good-looking. But knowing he's the enemy, aka her future ex brother-in-law's attorney might be a deterrent to stop her from acting on the att ...more

Illegally Yours is one of the most satisfying slow burns I’ve ever read!
Lucas and Trinity stole the show in the whiskey tasting scene in Down with Love and Illegally Yours picks up right from there, so you don’t have to read Down with Love - but you totally should! The sexy Brit and badass female whiskey sommelier have crazy chemistry but they also have a conflict of interest and so begins the slow burn.

Ladies get ready for the swoon worthy Lucas Wright . He has swagger, intelligence, a panty dropping smile and oh yes a sinfully sexy British accent. He is the quintessential bad boy that just hasn't found his perfect gal. When Trinity Jones steps into his sight all bets are off but she wants no part of this smug, arrogant oh so sexy attorney. She has been though the romance wringer and the last thing she needs is to be pursued by Lucas. The attraction is undeniable and the pursuit is on but once ...more

Illegally Yours (Laws of Attraction #2) by Kate Meader is the next book in the series. However the 1st book does not have to be read in order to read this book. I can say I have not read the first book and it didn't effect this story. Lucas is a hot shot divorce attorney who at a Whiskey tasting meets a woman who rocks his world. Trinity is a sommelier. Whiskey is her area of expertise. During an event she meets meets a loud, silly, very charming and sexy man. She has a an interaction with Lucas ...more

Lucas Wright may look like a young, carefree guy who only lives to be the life of the party and the always clowning around jokester among his band of hotly handsome, divorce attorney buddies, but make no mistake. There is much more to him than meets the eye. He’s hiding a hard luck past and a heartbreaking secret behind that sexy smile and strong Brit personna.

This book was so unexpected, and it really tugged my heartstrings. The first book in the series was so funny and, while this one had it's moments, it was so much more emotional.

Lucas Wright is a good-time guy. A cheeky Brit, always up for a drink and a jaunt with friends. A friend to everyone, and he's always "on". But there are things he hides, deeply, and from everyone. A painful past that still haunts him, and the constant feelings that he's not doing everything he should. So, as a lawyer, h

I am a big fan of Kate Meader and love her stories. Sadly, this one really didn't work for me. I had a great deal of difficulty relating to both characters, especially Lucas who took obnoxious to a new limit.
He made it hard to enjoy the story which was actually a great plot and storyline but his behavior was just too much. Trinity I liked but she also brought her own little bit of too much to the story. I liked the secondary characters and remember them from the previous book which was great. Th

Loved loved loved! Lucas and Trinity are perfect for each other. Lucas is playful but knows when to be serious,although he still manages to screw up. Trinity wants to be freer but her past and the responsibility she feels towards her sister and her sisters kids pull at her constantly. Trial by fire in the romance makes the ending that much sweeter.
