Rating: 5 Cups
Fenella is looking forward to her new life as soon as the divorce from her cheating ex is finalized. She has developed a crush on her attorney, but is convinced the slightly younger man does not return her feelings.
Michael has wanted Fenella since she walked into his Boston legal office. Now he does not want to lose contact with the woman he admires and desires.
As Fenella moves on, will she risk her fragile self esteem by seducing Michael? Is a quick affair enough or can Fenella’s new life include the handsome man who wishes to be in her arms?
Legal Briefs is completely wonderful. Fenella is absolutely my favorite divorcee protagonist. I adore her for being such a strong woman going through the worst time of her life, while thrilled to get started with her future. Her ability to fight back is inspirational, especially for wives traded in for the newer model. Michael is a great hero, solid, handsome, strong, but even better, he’s sexy in a real way that made my heart melt. The book gives the perfect description of “decidedly lickable”. Their interaction sends out sparks, and when the relationship moves beyond attorney and client, the pages catch fire with the dynamic tension. The dialogue is very well written and while the supporting characters fit the interesting side-kick pattern well, they are used in a fresh manner. The sex is breathtakingly hot, graphic, interesting, and thrilling all at the same time. Legal Briefs is the first in a new series of novellas and I am ready to pre-order Ms Kelly’s next book.
