My Thoughts

 

While her writing is amazing, I did have some major issues with this first installment of the Legal Briefs Series.  There are situations in this book that are difficult to believe they could ever happen in real life.  Nobody is that stupid…seriously, Stanton is a douche, who continually misses the red flags that are staring him in the face.  I didn't really care for him and Sophia could have stood up for herself a little more.  There are literally so many nuances of this story that can be picked apart.  All of which are completely spoiler-ish.   

 

The narration in this book completely saved it for me, it was actually more than exceptional.  It's really the only reason I felt compelled to listen until the end.

 

Sex Factor:  Scorching hot sex, of course, Emma Chase knows how to write about sex.
