4.5 out of 5 for this reader folks!
Another amazing book from Lauren Smith. I am in absolute love with her historical romance series, and it is always wonderful to find a fave author is just as good in another genre of romance! 🙂
Legally Charming by Lauren Smith is the first book in her “Ever After” contemporary romance series. Two people who were not expecting or hoping for love, come to find it whether they like it or not, and it knocks them right off their concrete path of life and onto a bumpy, full of adventure and “who knows what is going to happen” road.
Felicity Hart is a sweet, kind and a little naive woman who aspires to complete her graduate degree and move to a dream job to start her life. She ends up getting dragged to a Halloween party by her friend, and finds herself in a strange predicament before the night is over. She is laying in bed with this incredibly hot guy!
Jared Redmond is our incredible hot guy. LOL! Jared is a lawyer who is aspiring to make partner at his firm, he is sure of himself, somewhat of a reputable bad boy, and comes home to a Halloween party one night to find this beautiful woman sleeping, in his bed.
Neither of them are looking for love .. but love is about to find them!
Off we go on sweet love adventure of sorts. Both try to fight it in their own ways, but there is a pull that keeps them coming back for more. Outside circumstances, blackmail, and insecurity are just some of the odds stacked against them, but love has a sneaky way of squirming it’s way in a prevailing over all obstacles. These two are in for a sweet surprise.
This is truely a lovely romance story with a side of heat. My only complaint was it was a little too much predictable in story. That being said, what was predicted in my mind was well delivered and written. This is fairy tale like in a contemporary setting. Sweet girl tames bad boy! I absolutely loved the secondary characters as well and am really hoping that Lauren decides to give them their own stories.
Overall, an easy, fun, light and very sweet read. If you like a good ole contemporary romance then I highly recommend this book. I also will take the time to tell you to read her historical romance series as well .. because that is FANTASTIC!
HAPPY READING! 🙂
