Angela DeNero's life is a mess! She had just broken up with her fianc who had been cheating on her. Her law practice was in need of help and her most challenging thing yet was a man, the man she was up against in her court, handsome John Franco. She believes he'd send his own grandfather to jail but instead he makes her heart to a pitter patter. John Franco is ambitious and has no wish to marry or even be involved if it took away from his work. Angela and John matches in every way possible from their ambition to their sizzling attraction to one another throughout the book. Even more complications arise for Angela that she had no expected and prove to take everything in her to get a grip on.
Angela started out so tough and independent but as the book progresses spots of vulnerability stand out in her making her more real to life and easier to be sympathetic with and you are, very much so. John comes across as strong, unrelenting, and drop dead gorgeous. As the book moves along though, John becomes gentle, caring, and still drop dead gorgeous. I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to Ms. Criswell's next book about Mia. Ms. Criswell has really written a humorous, contemporary tale of challenges and love. Keep up the great work!
Another fantastic book by Millie Criswell! She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.
Angela DeNero is a Baltimore lawyer who comes face to face in the courtroom with her high school crush John Franco. John reveals that he too found her attractive way back when and even more so today. What complicates the situation is that they are opposing counselors in a custody battle. Their families and Angela's responsibilities add complications as well. Cute, readable book about family, love and traditions.
Very funny and cleverly written.
Can you believe a lawyer who chases another lawyer who he knows to be pregnant, and is defending a client who is in opposition to his? The realtionship is hard to believe, but the story itself is fun.
Very easy and run read...
