Arian is an attorney and he and Harley were together before he went to work in the U.S. Harley begged him to come back but wouldn’t, so she moved on. Now Harley is in trouble, can Arian save her from jail? Fast-paced read with plenty of drama, suspense and steam. A good read.

I enjoyed the story, which is part mystery, suspense, a touch of danger, involving an over-trusting girl, a devious criminal, and then there is the second chance romance. Throw in a few secrets, a dominant man who refuses to give up on a long term relationship, and a woman who has been hurt, and afraid to trust freely. I love the chemistry between Arian and Harley and glad to see them get the elusive happy ending. BUT, I hope Ms. Polly Carter plans a story for two sec

If you're looking for a competently written and edited, consensual, light DD story, you will probably enjoy this.

Harley and Arian have a complicated past: planning to marry until Harley, to Arian's dismay and confusion, suddenly broke things off, they are accidentally reunited several years later at the very moment that Harley's life is spinning out of control. She has been falsely accused of selling drugs and faces jail time; luckily for her, her ex is a criminal lawyer. Though she keeps pushi

A lightly BDSM cozy mystery second chance romantic comedy? You have my attention. Wait, there’s also a secret baby plot? I’m slipping away now. Normally there aren’t enough words in the English language for how much I dislike “secret baby” stories. I was very impressed by this one. Because we live in Harley’s head, and only Harley’s head, it’s very easy to see and empathise with what drove her. Since what we see of Arian isn’t always flattering, I can’t completely fault her for the choices she m ...more

Excellent! Polly unleashes one chaotic ride coupled with all the shenanigans and mayhem to rock this baby from start to finish. A raging vortex, chocked full of spinning emotions, bursting into play front and center. Skirting the drama, intrigue, danger and soaring suspense, throwing you into a curve, while balancing on a razors edge, fusing this little fella together seamlessly. Add turmoil, secrets, betrayal, undercurrents and unexpected situations along with a boatload

Harley Brand, our heroine, is a hot mess---like "going to jail soon" type mess. Arian Fletcher, our sexy hero lawyer, spots Harley in a cafe getting coffee. Harley isn't have a great day or few months. Her life seems to be spiraling out of control. Arian left Harley to work in the United States and remained there longer than six months. In the meantime, Harley begged him to come home. He refused. This is important to the story. Also, there's the secret of Lyddia. However, you're going to need to ...more

This is a really great story it has so much going on in it. It is an intense love story and at the same time it is a very dramatic "beware" of what can happen if you are too naive and trusting. It has some very anxious moments but a lot of it is funny and lighthearted. I loved it. ...more

Was not for me

The Lawyer's Secret Baby is the first book I have read by Polly Carter so I was not sure if I would connect with her writing or not. I picked up this book because the description intrigued me and I love a "down under" man but then when you add in some BDSM/power exchange I am all in. Well I cannot say that my expectations were met fully with this book. Unfortunately I found certain details of the story to be childish and more like a connect the dots kids puzzle as they were so easy

The Lawyers Secret Baby is such a wonderful love story that includes plenty of crime and action to keep you on the edge of your seat and guessing what will happen around each corner. The storyline is believable and the characters are true to life and filled with a large range of emotions throughout the story. Arian and Harley were pulled apart at an intense stage of their love but brought back together at the height of tragic and unforseen circumstances. Arian shows the perfect combination of un ...more

This story a something else I loved the hero of the story Arian he and Harley used to date until he moved to the US. He asked her to go she didn’t only to move away and break things off with him with no explanation she changed her phone number and all but not only that she kept the man’s child a secret from him and she knew for months while she was still with him that she was pregnant with his child she even asked her mother to keep this huge secret. When they meet again years later she is still ...more

Harley is somewhat naive and managed to become a drug mule. She is caught and is out on bail waiting for her trial. Arian has come back to Perth to win Harley back. This was an entertaining book, but the attitude of entitlement of the men in this book was a bit much. When Harley's friend Jessamy has a great idea to find the man who set up Harley, the men dismiss her. "I had no idea Jess was a dick, or that she was involved, but I don't think there's any need to take her seriously." And then Aria ...more

I've never read anything by Polly Carter before and don't think I'll go out of my way to do so again. Airan and Harley had a long term relationship that fell apart when he went to the US for education/work opportunities. After almost 2 years, she begs him to come back during a visit, but he selfishly says he's not ready. So, she moves on, with a baby unknown to him. She cuts off all contact and moves back hoe for support. Airan has got to be one of the most self centered, entitled H I've read in ...more

Loved the book it was great, the story was well written and the characters are interesting. Once I started I could not put the book down from start to finish you just could not get enough left you wanting more twists and turns with emotions that makes you wanting more. One of Harley's clients asked her to drop something off, that something got her into trouble, Harley needed to see her ex-boyfriend a Lawyer called Arian.

A riveting second chance romance that is superbly written, emotionally deep, steamy, well thought out, and exciting. It is action packed with secrets, suspense, humour, and intrigue. An on the edge of your seat read that will keep you guessing and excited for what is to come next. The characters are likeable and strong; the chemistry is off the charts. Definitely recommended.

I felt bad for Harley for trying to do something nice for someone and having it turn out so horribly. I am glad that Arian came back into her life when she needed him so much. I had a hard time with some of the story flowing for me. I just think this was not the book for me.

Harley and Arian have history. Years after they split they meet again, there are mixed emotions, chemistry, heat, deception, manipulation, secrets and a spanky HEA.

I can honestly say that there wasn't anything that I didn't like about this book. Yes, sometimes Arian and Harley annoyed me but in the same way that friends annoy you. I enjoyed the banter between all of the characters and enjoyed the Australian-ness of it. It came off just right. I'm really hoping that Jessamy and Zain have their own story in the future. ...more
