Laws of Attraction by N.M. Silber
review by Wendy
Gabrielle Ginsberg works for the public defenders office. She sees an array of characters that she has the unfortunate task of defending.
For the last 6 months she has been lusting for the handsome and charming Prosecutor Braden Pierce.
Braden is known in their circles as being a player. Even though Gabby is attracted to Braden, she’s been down that path before and won’t be a one night stand. Once their friends get together and start negotiations on their behalves, they start making plans.
I started out really enjoying this story. I really felt the chemistry and sexual tension between these two. Once they start dating, the hotness ensues. I laughed out loud a few times, and hot and bothered other times. I loved their friends. I thought in the end that their relationship moved a little fast, but I can suspend that reality. The thing that prevented this from being a five star was actually the subplot, the suspense, the climatic problem, whatever you want to call it. I found the Nancy Drew and the Hardy boys “investigation” unbelievable and irresponsible for someone who is suppose to be so smart. It lacked…well suspense. We are left with a cliffhanger at the end, and I will probably read the next installment for the people in the story, but I could honestly care less about the “who-dunnit”
“Well, I might be interested, but only if it was like a real dating thing and not just a one nighter with a meal plan”
“I’m sorry, but I just don’t want to stand in line at anybody’s bedroom door. I was an only child. I never learned to share nicely. “
