Aubrey Gates is the hottest divorce lawyer in Chicago, a barb-tongued stiletto with legs that go on for miles. When her cool gray eyes meet mine across the battlefield, I want her like I’ve never wanted anyone or anything. Then I reme

I didn't think my heart was going to take it. Talk about painful and gut wrenching! I've been so curious about this couple since book 1. There was so much love between this divorced couple that I couldn't imagine what was the catalyst to their breakup.

We finally get Grant and Aubrey's story and it was so hard to read. Their love was so huge that I hated that something came between them, and then to read what that was... I just wanted them to find their way back.

The author really takes you on an

Because no one, not even a man as sure as Grant Roosevelt Lincoln, can truly promise forever.


Divorce attorneys Aubrey and Grant have a complicated relationship. Both have successful careers as divorce attorneys. Both work for top tier firms in the city they call home, Chicago, and both find themselves going up against each other in court on a regular basis.

Oh, and they both used to be married to one another.

Two years ago, Grant finally threw in the towel and gave up on his marriage. A

Pain is supposed to make you stronger, some idiot said. Love, too. With Aubrey, I feel nothing but fear and weakness, desire and longing. When do I reach the part about becoming a better person?

I adore all things Kate Meader, and the second I got a look at the blurb for this book, I knew I had to read it! It sounded like it would be a great combination of feels, angst and steam, and boy was it!

Formerly married divorce lawyers + road trip + psychotic cat = funny, sexy, second chance romance. It's also a bit of a heartbreaker and one of my most emotionally fulfilling stories. I can't wait for you to read all about Grant and Aubrey!

Sincere, steamy, and emotional!

Then Came You is a heartwarming, second-chance romance between the intelligent, handsome Grant and the stubborn, fiery Aubrey as they discover that the heart wants who the heart wants and that some things are definitely worth the fight.

The writing is clear and genuine. The characters are determined, spirited, and troubled. And the plot told from alternating POVs is a heartfelt tale full of familial drama, loss, love, grief, friction, miscommunication, self-reflecti

Emotional and heart-wrenching yet beautiful second chance romance
I'm no expert in marriage but I appreciated how the author handled some of the sensitive issues well. most importantly, I like how the issue was resolved. It's realistic because the challenges faced by the couple were real and unfiltered.

This book starts off with divorce attorneys Aubrey Gates and Grant Lincoln meeting in a function which later reveals that they were divorced 3 years ago. However, it's clear that bot

Then Came You was a solid chick-lit romance with appealing characters that suffered somewhat from a lack of plot. Using the first person tense and dual POV between ex-spouses, Aubrey ‘Bean’ and Grant ‘Georgia’ were the protagonists in the third story of a trilogy but I had no issues reading it as a stand-alone.

The couple had a deep history. It was not hard to see they still loved each other but we’re burdened by a personal hurdle in their marriage. The lack of communication challenged

Then Came You is the first book I have read from this author and from the description I had high hopes that I would love it. Unfortunately this one was not what I expected especially from the description of the book. While yes it was a second chance romance between a divorced couple who clearly were still in love, it was in no way funny. Yes there were a few instances that I laughed and most of that was from Libby but overall it was a tedious read. Grant was awesome, he was loving and d

Kate Meader concludes her “Laws of Attraction” series with this tale of two divorce lawyers Aubrey Gates and Grant Lincoln.

When Aubrey needs a ride from Boston to Chicago – because she’s afraid of flying and can’t take her cat on a train – and huge favor to boot, who else would she turn to other than the love of her life and ex-husband? Of course the trip will be filled with angst, pain and an undying attraction which doesn’t care if a two year old piece of paper says their marriage is over but

I am on a second chance romance binge and Then Came You by Kate Meader had my heart bursting at the seams! It’s the third book in the Laws of Attraction series but it can most definitely be read as a standalone.

Talk about an emotional journey! The feels in Then Came You are insane. So much pain I felt for divorce lawyers Aubrey and Grant, because even though they were divorced from each other, you could clearly tell they still loved each other immensely.

None of their closest friends even know, much less understand why Grant and Aubrey divorced, but it’s clear two years later that these two still have feelings for one another.

I can easily say I loved Grant. Raised by a single mom, his Southern charm and gentlemanly behavior fit right in with his White Knight syndrome! And he was an emotional guy, all but wearing his feeling for everyone to see. He was cute, sweet, but finally reached his emotional limits with Aubrey. I can’t say I blame the guy

This is the third book in the series and am assuming the last one in it since Grant was the last guy in this trio's group. I hope you have started from the beginning because past characters make appearances and are mentioned a couple of times. So we have been waiting on Grant and Aubrey's story since we were teased with it in Max' s and Charlie's book and then again in Lucas. I have to say that it wasn't what I was expecting, not that I didn't enjoy it but I guess I thought that I would have bee ...more

This is the third and last book in the Laws of Attraction series, and what a fun series this was! This one is still considered a standalone though. It was much more emotional than I expected. The story focuses on Aubrey and Grant. We met them in the first book and I was immediately intrigued with what exactly had transpired between them. Well, we get our answers in this book. While I do understand what would make them drift apart, I feel like it was just a miscommunication between the two that e ...more

I do have a soft spot for a second-chance story between a divorced couple (some personal conditions attached for it to be a palatable read for me) and Grant/Aubrey is what Kate Meader brings to the end (?) of this series of cynical, commitment-free divorce lawyers who ironically find their HEA. But Grant/Aubrey buck this trend in ‘Then Came You’ where a miscarriage tore them apart and after some time, find their way back to each other.

Meader can write, undoubtedly, and that’s what draws me back

I adore Kate Meader and she never fails to wow me. I loved to finally get the story of Aubrey and Grant and I adore a second chance love story. This one completely worked for me. I love this friend group and getting to revisit them is one of my favorite things. There is a bit of angst in this one but I didn't find it to be overwrought. This was a solid great read and I highly recommend this series and this author! She always delivers an amazing story!

This book was such an emotional read and one that I could totally relate to.

I loved the flirty banter between Grant and Aubrey. Once married and now divorced - the two embark on a trip that turns into therapy for the two. They still love each other, but the reason for the split (which you'll have to read to find out) is heart wrenching and is so relevant to many couples. Some survive and many don't.

Such a great read. Loved it!

Kate Meader never fails to make my day, folks. With each new release, she gives me another reason to fall in love all over again, thanks to each new engaging romantic storyline and main couples I can’t help but root for. Then Came You was no exception. Having met Aubrey and Lincoln in the previous two books, I was well acquainted with the smoldering, unspoken chemistry and heated “I dare you to even look me in the eye” tension each time those two destined to reconcile knuckleheads were in the sa ...more

Eh...so many mixed feelings about this book.

First, I felt like we needed more than just the loss to be the cause of everything (and I mean everything) in this book. As someone who has been in Aubrey's shoes, more than once, I completely understand how absolutely devastating a loss like that can be. And I completely understand that people grieve in different ways, so I'm not one to judge. I just felt like everything revolved around that loss.

Second, the entire book was like a pity party for Aub

Intense and emotional read, ride along with Aubrey and Lincoln as they make the trip of their lives.
Kate Meader really knocked me for an emotional loop with this incredible story. Aubrey (Bean) and Grant Lincoln, met in college, onto law school, married and now divorced for about a year. Both still practice and have mutual friends and often sit on opposite sides of the courtroom. They make an amazing couple, and couldn't be more different. Aubrey is from a snobby, upper crust, old money family f

Aubrey and Grant were the power couple that everyone envied and wanted to be, beautiful and handsome, perfect together, and happily married, until they weren’t. Then Came You is the third book in the Laws of Attraction Series written by Kate Meader. I have read the first book in this series and liked it very much, but somehow I missed the second book. However, as luck would have it, I have had the pleasure to read the third book. This book was a quick read, well written and kept me interested wi ...more

After seven years, Aubrey and Grant called it quits, but the source of their divorce was still one of the best kept secrets, and it seemed even the fact that they WERE divorced was a bit of a secret. In an attempt avoid upsetting her grandmother, Grant agreed to accompany Aubrey to her birthday celebration, but little did Aubrey know, he had ulterior motives. He was going to win her back!

Meader took me on a road trip that was fun, sweet, sexy, and emotional, and I LOVED every second of it. From

Loved, loved, loved! Grant and Aubrey's story hit all the emotional buttons. For these two high powered attorneys not only is divorce their profession but it's what they are personally. They hold no punches in the courtroom but in private communication is a real problem. It's clear that the fire between them still burns brightly but they have no idea how to get back what they once had. I thought the author did a great job of keeping their story light and fun while dealing with some pretty heavy ...more

I was so excited to read this just from the blurb alone! I loved the beginning opening banter between the two. I will say this story was very predictable for me. I feel for this couple though. It was still a bit different from something I haven't read before. I'm glad it ended the way it did.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This book was just as emotional and angsty as I was expecting. It was hard to read at times because of all of the emotions but I'm glad that I read it because Grant and Aubrey were just as great together as I hoped they'd be. Good stuff, I'm so glad to have completed this series.

Definitely, a steamy read and I loved it when it was just Grant and Aubrey. But the baggage...hard to believe they could overcome that over a holiday weekend.

A couple of pages in I knew this was going to be the epic read that the series had been building up to. I wanted to devour it whole, yet at the same time make it last forever to stave off The End. Then Came You lived up to everything I’d imagined and all I’d longed for. It’s Kate Meader at her finest.

What starts out as a simple favor turns into so much more. Kate Meader brings Aubrey and Grant to life in ways she’d only hinted at in books one and two. She lays bare their souls on an emotional ...more

3 stars. This book was pretty good, but I didn't like the end as much as the beginning. Then Came You is Grant and Aubrey's story. Grant and Aubrey are a divorced couple. They are both lawyers working at different firms in the same building and they share mutual friends, so they see each other often but are not friendly. But, despite the fact it's been several years since they broke up, Grant learns that Aubrey's grandmother doesn't know they are divorced and expects them both to attend her birt ...more
