Ms. Silber was nice enough to gift me a copy when I contacted her recently and requested for one thru one of her comments in a blog. Which worked out perfectly given that this has been on my TBR since it came out.
It's a nice cute romantic read with likable characters. It's a straight rom com that will have you smile on many occasions. I love the side characters who actually made me laugh, especially the H's brother and friends. Hilarious!
I truly wish I can rate this higher. Strangely enough, I thought the dialogues b/w the h and her friend, or the H&h's interaction with their respective parents, just felt really unnatural. Yet, I love the banter b/w the H&h or the H and his friends/siblings. I also didn't fully understand the h's decision around this one event (re: the first letter). And the severity of that event just felt out of place given how light the interactions have been through out the story.
At the end though, it was a quick read given the amount of time I devoted to the book. It didn't capture me as much as I thought it was going to, but I thought it was funny enough for me to like it. I think I'm curious enough to find out what happens next. And I think I would actually prefer to read about the side characters and their stories (hint-hint, Ms. Silber:p). Bec I'm pretty sure Ms. Silber will only get better in time.
Thank you again, Ms. Silber for the copy:)

I am still laughing at the hilarious antics that rule this story of lawyer love by new to me author N.M. Silber. The Law of Attraction tells the story of a prosecutor Braden and a public defender Gabrielle who have been meeting across the courtroom for six months. He is a bit of a player and she isn't. The attraction is there but she informs him that she wants more than "...a one nighter with a meal plan." Braden meets her challenge and they start to date. But someone isn't happy about that and starts sending threatening notes to Gabrielle. Can their fledgling relationship withstand the heat of their attraction, the craziness of the courts system, interfering friends and nutso relatives?
This book is laugh out loud funny. Fans of Janet Evanovich will get a kick out of this book. There is sweetness and steam and a whole lot of I Love Lucy moments. I cannot wait for the conclusion in The Home Court Advantage.
