Now that his best friend, Josh, has happily settled down with his true love on a Montana ranch, small-town lawyer Ty Sullivan starts thinking that maybe single life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. And when Lauren Cunningham’s no-good ex-husband comes after her for an unexpected trust fund, Ty steps in to protect her. But soon he can’t help but think of her as more than a client. Lauren’s in no mood to jump into another relationship, so how can Ty convince her that her mistake wasn’t getting married, but marrying the wrong guy?
So first things first, the cover of this book almost threw me off of getting this book, but I am so glad that I read it (lesson learned mom, never judge a book by its cover). I adore this book, there were just elements in them that totally worked for me. The heroine Lauren has some secrets, which adds kind of a mystery element to her life when she interacts with other people. Plus she also has a psycho ex, and I tend to love books with psycho exes where the woman fights back, I love a woman who stands her ground and doesn’t give into a bully, and that is totally Lauren.
So like I said earlier I like that Lauren is a strong girl, that she is standing up to here ex. When the story starts she is in some legal trouble with her ex-husband. Her ex-husband feels like he is entitled to pretty much anything he wants including things that only belong to Lauren. So she has to mount a legal defense. The whole book is kind of like this, her ex is constantly pushing, sometimes showing up, making her life uncomfortable, scaring her, and Lauren standing her ground and not giving in. I liked that she found work that makes her happy, and that it has really kind of move on from the jerk that was her ex.
Ty is a friend of her’s who is a lawyer, and at first when she goes to him for help he tells her he can’t because he wants more from her then a lawyer client relationship, he likes he. But as the story goes on and Lauren and Ty start to become something more to each other, he is there every step of the way. I think a lot of guys would be turned off by starting a relationship with someone who has a psycho ex, but not Ty, he’s there for her, he cares about her, and he takes care of her (like when she gets to wrapped up in work to remember to eat, he cooks, things like that, he’s just sweet). Ty is definitely my kind of guy.
There is some nerve wracking elements in this book, some suspense, but ultimately its a really nice love story between two people, that is just really enjoyable to read. I went through this book really quickly, I don’t think I put it down once. I really enjoyed it and I would easily recommend it.
