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

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
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

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

"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, keeping

This book was very quirky. Normally, I really, really dislike books that are ultra quirky--they often feel stilted, forced. Kate Meader made everything feel really natural in Illegally Yours!

Quick summary: Lucas Wright is a divorce attorney. He meets Trinity Jones on a night out, and becomes immediately smitten with her. Lucas is cocky, but in a kind of childlike, earnest way. He's a sweet guy who works hard for his clients, often going above and beyond for them. Trinity was a w e s o m e. She's

This book blew me away. It was funny, sweet, romantic, and hot. I just loved Lucas and Trinity. From the moment they meant they were drawn to each other. Honestly to me they were complete opposites but they just seemed to fit perfectly together. Trinity was a so in your face person but underneath that I think she just wanted to be loved and excepted for who she was. Lucas was lonely and feeling very guilty for things that happened in the past. Lucas was British so for me it made the book that mu ...more

LOVED this book! I fell in love with Trinity and Lucas and was totally engrossed in their story - from the unlikely connection to the cheesy lines, this book was wonderful. Trinity is the whiskey woman, who's sister is in the middle of a nasty divorce. While she is doing a whiskey tasting, she meets Lucas and they instantly connect. Then, they later figure out that Lucas is representing her brother-in-law in the divorce, which puts them at cross purposes. This creates some entertaining situation ...more

Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Another great addition to this series. Lucas, a divorce attorney, meets Trinity, a whiskey sommelier, at a whiskey tasting she's conducting. It's obvious they are both interested but they discover that Lucas is Trinity's brother in law's attorney in her sister's pending divorce. What ensues is Lucas trying to find a way for them to be together. This book had sexy times along with a great story with some surprises along the way. Highly recommend. ...more

Kate Meader’s Illegally Yours is a masterpiece of emotions. Her writing, and this story, made me laugh out loud, swoon at the sweetness, and cry at the heartache. Illegally Yours is a wonderful story of two wounded people, that on paper shouldn’t be together, but can’t fight the feelings developing.

Lucas is a hero with an injured heart. He is gorgeous, has a great job and is involved in the community. He meets Trinity at a bar and is instantly smitten. He tries, very unsuccessfully (and humorous

This novel is titled quite appropriately. Lucas and his friends are in a bar when he instantly becomes attracted to the Sommelier.( A fancy word for an individual who does whiskey tasting for a living). Lucas and Trinity have an instant attraction. Trinity has a rule about not getting involved with customers that visits the bar she works in but Lucas makes it hard not to. Later we find out why this title of the book says its all. Trinity sister Emily is getting a divorce and Lucas represents her ...more

I know that when I read a Kate Meader book I’m going to enjoy the ride. Illegally Yours was definitely a fun read. I found Lucas delightful in the first book of the series and I looked forward to seeing him meet his match in Trinity. They are ridiculously hot together, the sparks flying the moment they meet even though Lucas suffers from an unfortunate case of diarrhea of the mouth.

Kate mixes swoon moments, with moments of hilarity. She also mixed in moments that made me want to strangle everyo

I continue to enjoy the Laws of Attraction series... Ms Meader understands how to draw out characters so that you care about their relationships, both with friends and lovers. These books read like hanging with your best friends. Lucas plays the happy fool and entertainer. Trinity is the ultimate lawnmower parent to her sister. Lucas recognizes her protection is coming from a place of love, but he sees that it's holding her back. When they find themselves with opposite stakes in a legal battle, ...more

Illegally Yours by Kate Meader made me reminisce about the the fun of Harry Potter books and the amazing tastes of Scottish whiskeys - neat, of course ;)

Apart from HP and whiskey, you'll also get
- a tough-on-the-outside-goo-on-the-inside hero
- a kick-a** sommelier heroine
- sexy fun and family drama
- a hot scene involving a scrunched together pair of leather pants that somehow reminded me of a scene with Ross in FRIENDS.

There is so much that I want to say about this book and I really have no idea where to start. I absolutely LOVED this book. I really want to read Then Came You now it's the next one in the Laws of Attraction series. I absolutely adore the nerdiness that goes throughout this book. Dr. Who, Harry Potter and so much more. It makes my inner nerd scream out with joy. It also has the main female character in a career that generally is a man ran field which is absurd. I love whiskey. Thank you for maki ...more

I wasn't quite sure how to rate this. I liked the hero and heroine and the fact that the heroine was a WOC and older than the hero. However, I had a hard time with the ethical conflict in the book. The hero knew that there was a conflict, but continued to pursue the heroine. The ethical issue gets resolved in the book. but it could/should have been resolved much earlier. Also, the heroine knew that the hero was representing her brother-in-law in the

I loved this book! This is the second in Kate Meader’s Law’s of Attraction series that centers around three divorce lawyers. Lucas Wright is a 28 year old, hot Brit, who has a goofy, devil may care attitude. He meets Trinity Jones when she is leading a whiskey tasting. He is instantly captivated by her. Trinity is the consummate nurturer, and takes care of those she loves. When she meets Lucas, she finds him attractive, but thinks he is just an overgrown frat boy. Lucas decides that he needs to ...more

Illegally Yours is a fun, sexy and easy read. Trinity a whisky sommelier and Lucas a divorce attorney meet one evening and sparks immediately fly. The characters are flawed but loveable and truly had me rooting for them. Trinty is a strong female lead and not your typical damsel in distress. Lucas is cocky but sensitive and full of complex emotions. The way they are written makes them feel like equals and not like the male character dominating a female.character.

While I definitely likes this book better than the first book in this series, it is still not one of my favorites by the author. I loved Trinity. She is the type of heroine I would love to be friends with., and not just because I love whisky. Lucas I did not love as much. He was a little too much for me.. I am not fond of manic, jokey heroes and his over the top personality grated on my nerves.

Kate Meader is quickly becoming a must read romance author for me. Something about her quick witted characters with scorching hot chemistry works. Illegally Yours is no exception to the rule. In it, Lucas is a nonstop ball of British energy who sees Trinity working at a bar. Their chemistry is instant, but Trinity is less than impressed with his frat boy antics. Of course, there's always more to the story and the rest of Lucas's story is a doozy. Then there's the fact that he's also representing ...more

I think their predicament is indeed a very sticky situation but these two have so much other life issues to deal with. Their very foundation, family life is so realistic and touches the heart. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees, tough love. I like that they are not perfect and their relationship is give and take. I really like their determination, especially Lucas. I also think this touches on how sometimes too much help can cause dependency and stunt maturity. Trinity is so giving, ...more

This was another great book by Kate Meader. I have read both of the books in this series, but this can stand alone if you haven't. The series follows 3 friends who are partners in a law firm specializing in divorce, and who are hesitant about love as a result.

Lucas and Trinity were fantastic, well-developed characters. Lucas brings a lot of humor to the story, but as you read you learn the true reasons he has for acting that way. Trinity is much more serious, but tends to put everyone above hers

Illegally Yours by Kate Meader is Book 2 of the Laws of Attraction series. While part of a series, this story can be read as a standalone.

This was a sweet romance with some definite quirkiness, so much so that I felt it really took away from my enjoyment of the story; I just couldn’t for the life of me take Lucas serious with all his obnoxious and clowning ways. 3 stars.

I love this book. I have never laughed so much in along time while reading a book. The characters are filled with mystery that you hope will come out sooner rather then later. Their is a sadness, but the love, friendship and adoptive family out weighs it all. Not only that but this is one of the few books in which the author has shown growth in major and some minor characters. Most important thing is Lucas and Trinity’s relationship went through so much trial and tribulations, but they never gav

Illegally Yours is the second book in the series and fans will not be disappointed. The chemistry between Trinity and Lucas was a sizzling, slow build that left me wanting more. This book was real and raw and strong and will give you all the feels. 5 chilli peppers of hotness! Thanks Loveswept and NetGalley for the ARC.

I've received a ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

A good book to sit back and relax with but unfortunately I just didn't feel any connection to this or any of the characters. Despite the author's great writing, I just didn't resonate with the story. I do want to give kudos to the author for having a POC main character. Overall just not my cup of tea.

Lucas just has a way with his woman, " would be really bad form to abandon me in my time of need.” And then he trots off that perfect * ** and those Thighs of Thunder, leaving me in serious need of more Franzia." I liked this book, I loved Lucas.
