What are you supposed to do when your insanely hot divorce attorney leans over after you’ve signed your divorce papers and seductively whispers in your ear, “Give me a call if you want to know how it feels to be handled by a real man since you were clearly too much woman for him,” before sliding his business card over and walking out the door?

This is a short book with 195 pages. It is sweet, it is fun and it is emotional. It has its hot moments but it wasn’t as hot as I expected it to be. It was more on the sweet side.

I can't say it was great but still I enjoyed my time with it.


The hero in this book is 38 years old and the heroine is 23.

Normally I don’t like it when he is 15 years older than her. This book should have been one I would avoid. However, I had a crush on its cute cover and wa

There was something so likeable about this heroine and the Hero was so damn sweet!
3.75 stars.

I enjoyed this one.
Never heard about this author before, so is a nice surprise with this one.

Age gap, 15 years different between them.
Insta, but I like it for this story.😘
RomCom with plenty lol moments.
A wonderful hero and a lovely heroine.
A light but it wasn’t shallow storyline, love that twist toward the end:)
Overall, entertained me enough for a few hours.

Meh. I'm not sure what possessed me to request this. It made me cringe within the first few minutes of reading this book and the characters… yeah no. I get the appeal. I do. And the concept, I'm all for it but sorry, this wasn't for me. At all.

Sloane is a 23 year-old woman who is getting divorced. As to why, read the book. Her lawyer was changed to the guy named Carter Van Gordon which she did not know about til she had to meet her lawyer in their office.

Carter is a fierce lawyer who has quite the manly appeal. I must say, i understand why she was attracted to the man. Lol anyway, Carter is 38. After Sloane’s divorce process, Carter offered her himself

Really enjoyable and Laugh out loud funny , had me in fits one minute and palpitations the next.
I loved every page and am Dying to read the books of the 3 friends.

These two were brilliant characters, their chemistry was off the charts and their banter perfect.
He’s so cool and calm, with a big protective spirit inside him.
She feisty , loves easily and falls hard , a sensitive woman .

This was my first by this author , but even as I write I’m looking into her past books , I’m hooked.

A fun, witty, and steamy read. I adored Sloane and Carter and I was cheering for them from the start. I believed in them even if it was an insta-attraction and I loved how they joked about their age difference.

I'm lowering the rating mainly because of the plot twist in the second half of the book that was in my opinion a little bit far-fetched. Fortunately, it was solved quickly and there wasn't any more unnecessary drama further. Overall it was sweet and enjoyable with really likeable characte

When Sloane's divorce attorney isn't available thanks to having gone into labor early, Sloane is pleasantly surprised to find the attorney stepping in to take over her case is a gorgeous hottie wearing suspenders. And he's clearly the dominating force in the conference room. And he gives her the proposition of her life minutes after her divorce is signed off. Whew!

But Sloane's got some baggage thanks to her cheating ex's erosion of her self-esteem. She doesn't thi

The Divorce Attorney was a real treat! Sloane and Carter's "meet cute" is definitely not a normal one. Sloan is getting divorced and Carter ends up taking over her case at the last minute for another attorney. Their attraction is instant, but Sloan isn't interested in jumping into another relationship since she is getting out of a very bad marriage. Carter decides Sloan is worth pursuing and does just that. Eventually, she agrees to a date. From there, their relationshi

I really liked this story. Over all the characters are good. Sadie is completely sassy southern bell. For too many years she allowed a man to make her feel less than. He was dishonest from the onset of their relationship. But she is breaking free from him. She is shedding her worthless husband name and all. She is ready to live her life for herself. Living her best single life with her friends.

Munton is a new author for me, and I have to say I was incredibly pleased with her style of writing. It had an easy relaxed flow of a storyteller. As if your part of the scene and not the reader.

This story revolves around the life of Sloane and Carter. Now, Sloane meets Carter who is the owner of the law firm which is handling her divorce. Unfortunately, her attorney went into labor early so, Carter will be handling the case.

From the moment they caught sight of one another they were both quite p

Fast paced. Addicting. Age Gap. Steamy. Hot. Must Read.

This was a really fast and fun read. Sloane just divorced and when her original divorce attorney is going into labor, she meets her Carter Van Gordon. He is immediately entranced by her as she is described to have an amazing body. With an age gap of 15 years, they started hooking up as Sloane was encouraged by her best friends to use him as a rebound.

From the start, the chemistry was on point. Sloane is sa

All Sloane wants to do is put her ex and their painful marriage in her past so that she can focus on her future but when her lawyer is replaced by Carter she wasn’t expecting the attraction she would feel not only to him physically but also the power he exudes when it comes to his profession.

Carter was enchanted by Sloan from their first meeting and once their professional relationship is concluded he wants more. When she doesn’t follow up on his offer the chase is on as he visits her at her pla

“The Divorce Attorney” is only my second book from the author. The blurb sounded interesting and that’s why I picked it up! It’s not like something I normally read, but it’s good to get out of my comfort zone once in a while! This is a romantic comedy with age-gap trope.

Sloane never thought that she’ll be getting a divorce so early on life. Marrying on a whim with a man she didn’t really know was after all a bad decision, si

I saw a teaser for this book and immediately had to go digging for more information on it. I hadn't read anything from this author before this but I can guarantee I will be looking into more from her now.

I am a sucker for southern charm and these characters had it in great abundance. However, that wasn't what made me fall in love with the story, instead, it was the interactions between the characters. Their dialogue, inner musings, and banter were perfect. I also appreciated the cute ch

This one came up as a book you may like on amazon, and as I love a lawyer romance, I bought it and dived in...and absolutely loved it. I loved Sloane and Carter's story and loved their age gap, proving that age is just a number.

The chemistry between these two was seriously hot, I always believed in them despite the age gap and the fact that they couldn't have come from more different backgrounds. The bumps in the road were different from the usual and while most would say what a coincidence, it

Sloane is getting divorced. At twenty-three and only two years into her failed joke of a marriage, it’s time to move on. She waited long enough – even put grad school on hold so that her husband could dig himself out of debt. And what did she get? A lying, cheating jack-ass. Yep. Time to cut that string and take her life back. Then a case of premature labor has her case transferred to a different attorney. A smoking hot, ridiculously sexy, sus

Oh, the delicious scandalousness of a- slightly older- hot as sin divorce attorney slipping you his card and telling you to give his a call when you want to know how it feels to be handled by a real man since you were clearly too much woman for your ex. Then add in a southern accent and sweltering Charleston nights and... Oh, just, yum.

There is just something so attractive about a man that knows what he wants. Yum. You know, I couldn't really help it... the whole time I kind of pictured Carter a

First of all...WOW! Where can I get one of those? Carter Van Gordon, I mean. He's hot and sexy and knows what he wants. That would be his newly divorced client, Sloane Williams. There may be an age gap, but their chemistry is on target. Strap yourselves in folks, it's a helluva hot and steamy ride!  

Sloane's asshat of a cheating husband is history and she's ready to start over, but she never expected to get propositioned by her newly appointed divorce attorney. The moment she saw him at his desk

A book about insta-love with a great romantic and sweet hero. Unfortunately for me the heroine was just too pessimistic and obsessive for me to be able to enjoy this book.

So, this was my first read from this author, I must say I was pleasantly surprise of how much I enjoyed this book.

I have a thing for lawyers, now throw in some suspenders and a bow tie, I’m in and Carter did not disappoint, although I was bummed out that we didn’t get his point of view in the story, I still enjoyed it.

Sloane married young and now after a couple of years she sees her self in a place no one wants to, in divorce court, by a change of events her lawyer goes on maternity leave early
