Synopsis

Once upon a time two lawyers fell in love across a courtroom …

Gabrielle Ginsberg was a public defender with plenty of nerve and Braden Pierce was an assistant district attorney with a whole lot of swagger. Gabrielle wanted Braden and Braden wanted Gabrielle.
And Cameron wanted Gabrielle.
And Marla wanted Braden.
And Cole wanted Gabrielle.
And Mrs. Mason wanted Braden.
And an anonymous letter writer wanted to keep Gabrielle and Braden apart.
Together Gabrielle and Braden discovered many important things, like which doors at the courthouse actually locked, and that desks could be useful for more than writing. They also found out that the path of love was not always smooth, and it was sometimes trod upon by some really wacky people, like a confused fanny grabber, an eighty-two year old pothead and a gentleman who threw a wine and cheese party in his pants. Could true love overcome a lack of privacy, interference by jealous rivals and the insanity of the criminal court system?

NOTICE: This book contains explicit descriptions of sexual situations and mature language. It is intended for readers over the age of eighteen.

 Our Review:
I always know when a book is good when I finish the book and immediately scour the internet to cyberstalk the writer to find out everything I can about what he or she is writing next, when it will be published, and what else he or she has released. I definitely cyberstalked the heck out of N.M. Silber after finishing this book. 

This novel has a great mix of humor, plot, and sexiness. The funny dialogue between Gabrielle and Braden had me smiling and snorting with laughter throughout the read--I love a funny, sexy read. The sexiness was in perfect tune with the book--not too salacious but not too tame either. And the mix of romance between Gabrielle and Braden and the 'who is behind these threatening notes' plot kept me turning pages until my eyes were burning and begging for sleep in the wee hours of the morning..but I just couldn't stop. I willingly lost sleep--on a work night!-- so that I could see how this story ended. 

You know why we liked them so much? Communi-freaking-cation. They're lawyers, so no offense to other lawyers out there, but these two liked to argue. The best part about their negotiations and banter and back and forth is that it was easy and happy and funny..so not your typical start of a relationship. Maybe the lack of angst was due to their age and chosen professions, but it was awesome and hysterical and I completely loved it. I laughed out loud many times, but I really enjoyed some of their court cases together. He is the prosecutor and she is the court appointed attorney for mostly minor cases but her inner-Gabrielle dialogue made me almost choke on my drink a few times. So be warned. Hopefully you laugh your ass off, but don't drink and read as it could be hazardous.

You can imagine my surprise when I got to the last page and I saw that this story would be continued in a second book. Those of you who read the blog on a regular basis know that I have a love/hate relationship with the whole 'to be continued' or even worse cliffhangers...but N.M. Silber handled the ending so well that I honestly was okay with having to wait for the next one to come out. I had a nice feeling of satisfaction and while I definitely will be eager to get my hands on the next book, I didn't have a strong desire to strangle the author...more like I wanted to gently nudge her into releasing the next one as quickly as possible.

Yep, I was a little like "say what?" But it wasn't a cliff hanger per se for Gabrielle and Braden. I loved them both with abandon, but it is more the secondary plot that is to be continued I think, while still giving us more of our favorite little gang. I can't wait to see what shenanigans they get up to in the court room, and well the interview rooms *ahem*. I can't wait to see what comes out of her Bubbe's (her grandma) mouth next and would love to see a scene where Bubbe and Drew (Braden's brother) go toe to toe, because that would be funny. *hint, hint*! Anyways, does my review make it seem like I am so happy to have read this book and really, really, really loved it? Well I'd like to state for the record (see, I even learned some court proceedings, lol) that I am currently smiling. It made me very happy. 

I'm so looking forward to seeing who this mysterious note writer is, reading the funny quips between Gabrielle and Braden and their friends, and hopefully see them have their happily ever after. These two had one of the sweetest, non-angst filled romances I've read in a while and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Me too, sister. Me. Too! I can't wait to see what happens next! Some of my favorite books are happy, well-written ones like this that pull me out of my angst filled masochistic book hangover. This is one of those. Perfect.

About the Author
Once upon a time ... N.M. Silber was a criminal defense attorney who got up each morning, donned her power suit and sensible pumps, downed a gallon of coffee and set out to "fight the good fight" while trying to not go insane. Having a dark sense of humor and a sarcastic wit helped -- a lot. Another thing that helped was reading. As escapism was the goal, she liked to read romance novels, especially really funny ones and really sexy ones. Then one day something beautiful happened -- she read one that was both funny and sexy at the same time. She hung up her power suit, put away her sensible pumps and moved her coffee mug to her computer. Now she writes funny and smutty romance novels herself and she lives happily ever after.

  1. Wow! Thank you SO much for really "getting" this book! I'm holding on to this review! Thanks also for pointing out that it's only the secondary story that ends in a cliffhanger. Gabrielle and Braden are in a good place! Book two just gives them and their friends a chance to have more fun and gives readers a chance to get excited about Adam's book coming early next year. By the way, you can stalk me whenever you want:) Thanks again!
